  1. Suppose it's good to know I'm not the only one! I've contacted Ashdown via their website - I'll post their response here.
  2. I'll give that a go - though my cynical streak is expecting the 'use the supported PSU only' line.... I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks,
  3. badboy1984 - If you do upgrade, let me know if you need a good home for the DiMarzios
  4. Hi, I wonder if someone could help me. I have a six outlet PSU powering all pedals. There is a terrible hissing noise, which I've narrowed down to my Ashdown Drive Plus pedal.[list] [*]Ashdown connected to PSU, all other pedals powered by battery - no noise [*]All other pedals connected to PSU, Ashdown powered by battery - no noise [*]Ashdown and any other pedal connected to PSU - very hissy. [/list] This isn't just the usual hum you get when using pedals with a PSU - it's very loud. I've also tried the pedals in different orders, connecting to different outlets on the PSU, but the hissing remains - except in the scenarios described above. I've tried two basses (Fender Jazz and Ibanez ATK) and several cables - it makes no difference. I can just run the Ashdown on batteries, but if anyone has any suggestions how I can resolve this, I'd appreciate it!. Thanks, George
  5. Ok - I really need this gone ASAP or my missus is going to kill me! We don't have space for two bass amps apparently. Cash isn't a huge issue - I'd rather see it go to a good home than take it to Cash Converters! Price dropped to £75, or will happily swap for pedals - I need a tuner & compressor, but anything considered. Set of decent Jazz Bass pick-ups or something like that might also do the trick
  6. Poundland! Pack of two Kodak branded, last fine in my pedals.
  7. I love my 10 year old Fender Jazz, almost like an extension of myself! Can't beat the slim neck, low action and clear tone. Often consider changing the pickups for something with a little more bottom end, but never seen it through, scared I'll lose the tone I love. Also have an active Ibanez which I like sometimes, but is out of favour at the moment, just a bit too ballsy for what I'm doing just now. I can't seen to cut through the mix with this one without cranking up loud, and ends up sounding too muddy. (Edit to fix typos)
  8. [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]Great little amp! 120 Watts, 1 x 12 Speaker, dual channel. [/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]Small enough for home practice, but also big enough for band rehearsals and smaller gigs. For bigger gigs, it's ideal as an on-stage monitor - especially given it's wedge shape and DI out.

Or I could end in the deep stuff with the missus.....[/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]The amp is in perfect working condition, except from the following minor problems: [/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]1. Handle on top slightly mis-shaped [/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]2. 'Ultrabass' effect won't switch on (basically an octaver) [/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]It's a few years old, but is in great condition considering it's age. [/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]I'm looking for £100 cash, though I'd consider swaps music gear. Particularly interested in decent bass effects pedals - but I'm open to suggestions (basses, speaker cabs, guitars, keyboards - what do you have?). [/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]I'm near Glasgow and can deliver within reason. Given the relatively large size and low value of this, I don't think it's worth anyone's time paying to courier this.[/size][/font][/color] [color=#666666][font=verdana, arial, sans-serif][size=3]Any questions, just ask and I'll respond ASAP.[/size][/font][/color]
  9. Hi Bert & Scojack Yeah, I do like the Ashdown Drive Plus. I like using it for a bit of extra bite, as opposed to all out fuzz (which isn't really my cup of tea!). I find it pretty versatile as it has separate high & low drive controls. Also, upgraded my amp sooner than expected - bought myself an Ashdown Mag 300 Evo II head and 2 x 10 cab to go with it. I'm going to try to flog the old Behringer in the 'For Sale' section. George
