  4. Another Top deal with Tom ( gotta love a clearance 😁 ) Always a pleasure and a really smooth easy BC transaction ( keeps you informed and updated all the way ) Many Thanks Tom ! Deal with in total confidence a credit to BC . Cheers Gary
  5. Brand snobbery and much competition I reckon . Used and owned a few Laney rigs over the years , never had a bad sound . A bass player local to me uses a Laney rig ( DPseries ) and sounds enormous Like the look of the newer Nexus , just think its so competive at the pricing and maybe they lack an endorsee or 2 . Must remember where I left / put / stored / my RB9 too …hmmm Gary
  6. About time it had Bump Maz Thanks 😁 Still with me yes and always room for negotiation . South Wales based however currently off to enjoy some rain and thunderstorms in Italy for a week or so Drop me a message and ill get back as soon as I can Gary v8

    Fabulous bass Fabulous Luthier and a very good price too ! Scale Length ? String Spacing ? Weight ? Low Output Pickups = Low Impedance ( active circuitry ) ? Gary v8
  8. No experience of these but as an experiment maybe ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DOUBLE-BASS-UPRIGHT-BASS-FULL-SET-OF-NEW-STRINGS-UK-SELLER-FAST-DESPATCH/321826657830?_trkparms=aid%3D555019%26algo%3DPL.BANDIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20151005190540%26meid%3D59862b9b39884f67a6c75fdb4bd8b961%26pid%3D100505%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26&_trksid=p2045573.c100505.m3226 Its really a minefield finding something that " Fits " ...couple that with "Good " technique too ...rules me out .. Re Your Orch strings .. I reckon theres a few that would welcome that " Dull thump not much sustain " Much luck on the quest Gary ( finishing the festive sherry a week early )
  9. Gotta love a tumbleweed pic ( like the windmills of my mind ) Almost certainly a string issue here FB ......( possibly with a bridge /piezo issue ) For me , Strings are almost the most critical part .. and a constant search / struggle /fun /PITA / expense... ( not sure orch strings are the ideal choice for EUB ) With my rather poor technique I also " compress " to a greater or lesser extent depending ..( assuming you have a note to compress ) The EQ ing of the eub or amp wont / shouldn't have much effect at all on any deadening or " killing " of a note Other things are " action " and ensuring the strings are " seated " and silks /windings not " lodged" or stuck ..either bridge or nut ends .. Strings first and a good set up will make everything betterer . Oh .. make sure youre not wearing the Marigolds when youre playing too ! Someone much more savvy will be in soon I'm sure Cheers Gary ( EUB Hamfist )
