  1. How can I improve my sound? - advice needed!

    I have the BD-I21 and I love it. I put it before my bass modded Marshall ED-1 Compressor last week and everyone commented in the improvement in my sound.
  2. The importance of size

    I have recently been using both a GK 200 watt combo and a MiBass 220 Head with various cabs and zi agree with many that say 350 is your minimum. The problem is that Amps are rated into 4 ohms and and give something around half that into 8. So maybe 100 watts? That is not enough for most gigs. A 350 watt will give between 175 and 250 into 8 ohms depending on brand and that gives more headroom. It is also worth repeating that a gain and master volume gives the versatility you need.
  3. The Big Fat South-West Bass Bash 2018!!

    Done, hope that helps,
  4. Newbie question about Speakon cables

    Are you sure the Amoeg will be an upgrade? Seriously though Bill is right that many jacks are rated at 0.5 amps. That is 3 watts into 8 ohms and 1 watt into 4 ohms. Some good jacks are good for higher current/power but you can not be sure what rating either a cable or amp/ cap has. Speakons have a minimum of 20A or 3200 watts into 8 ohms and 1600 into 4 ohms. Finally a well known amp maker is convinced that that jack leads cause more power amp failures than anything else.
  5. Best compressor pedal?

    I read the Ovnilabs reviews and decided to try the Marshall ED1 with the recommended bass mods. It is all I need and when used with the BDI-21 sounds great.

    Mike, it takes a lot of rime efffort and money tou raganise a bash.Shall we start paying to ease the financial incentive burden?
  7. Cheap tuner v tc polytune

    [quote name='owen' timestamp='1495477724' post='3304072'] This one does it for me. It sits in my tuner out and is fine and dandy. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PT-06-Guitar-Pedal-Tuner-Chromatic-Pedal-Tuner-True-Bypass-for-Electric-Guitar-/401195568828?hash=item5d691e8ebc [/quote]Does it mute in tune mode?
  8. Preamp / DI Shootout

    +1 for the BDI21. I used mine for the first time at a gig last week and had great comments about my sound. Many talk about a mid scooped sound but it is not massive and although there are mods for this, it sounds good to me.
  9. Fixing up a cab - is it worth it?

    [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1509658196' post='3400713'] The CTM-15 is an all-valve job though... could still be quite hefty! [/quote]If the power supply was Up to it is could put out 35 watts with a square wave. Hardly a monster and “hefty” it ain’t.
  10. Single 12" bass Cab

    [quote name='deepbass5' timestamp='1503233436' post='3356571'] I would just buy an Acme lowB best cab i have owned bracing video - [url="https://youtu.be/uJy3TscsL-U"]https://youtu.be/uJy3TscsL-U[attachment=251744:IMG_0936.JPG][/url] [url="https://youtu.be/uJy3TscsL-U"][attachment=251745:IMG_0936.JPG][/url] [/quote]Why? You sacrifice sensitivity for low end that you do not need.
  11. 12" Cab Diary Continued

    Phil that sounds so wrong.
  12. Headroom question.

    If you are using an HPF and getting problems it may be that the cut- off is too low. Also as others have said if those little speakers are complaining, adding more watts will make them complain more and you will run into (more?) power compression.

  14. Bergantino Forte Bass Amp

    [quote name='Merton' timestamp='1499787973' post='3333609'] Does this use the standard ICEPower amp module or something a bit more exotic? [/quote]I am guessing it users the ICEPower.ASX700. The ASX700 is one of the newer modules and probably clad leading.
  15. Aguilar TH 500 ' a bit of a wimp'?

    I wonder if one of the problems here is model numbers. The marketers know we are bears of very little brains and will assume that W big number indicates the power. Is a TH500 louder than a Streamliner 900? An LM3 must be very quiet. As for the covert “all class d is rubbish” , the end of the world is nigh...
