    F hole covers

    Are these any good? I think Artisan used to use these when he played loud DB.
  2. I think it was this thread . Scroll down to Hellzero's advice about the double sided adhesive.

    impulse response

    Is IR the new name for sample? With these, you could run any old EUB and get an old german bass sound from it

    Pedal steel / lap steel

    I'm in the process of moving house and have the lap steels all in one place. I broke open the 8 string tuned E13 and remembered why I both love and loath the tuning :). It's great for melodic lines, soloing and rich chords but I miss the country/Hawaiian thing with all the 6ths. The C6/A6 tuning seems to offer more variety, for me any way. I may revert the 8 string to A6. The only issue is that you can't really do E13 on a 6 string and it would leave me with three instruments tuned the same. Wonder if I'll miss E13?

    Very small cab - options?

    I didn't like the one10 for DB, I found it very dark and lacking enough full range content. Small EA cabs (10 inch), Greenboy Crazy8, even a small 10 powered PA speaker might work well depending on budget.

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    Anyone install a V V T harness on their BB1024/25 basses instead of the V T switch config?

    SFX Thumpinator

    I get different results from different basses. With a 5 string jazz with EMG pups, it's first and it tames and focuses the sound before going into a VTDI. With the other basses, it gives opposite effects so it sits at the end.
  8. Withdrawn now 3/4 Double bass soft case. I got this a few years back and it's now spare. All the zippers work and has decent padding. In good shape. Usual pockets, backpack style straps and grab handles. The case is at my house in Wakefield but I don't think I can post this as it's quite big and I have a lot going on during the week as I'm moving house. If you want it we can try and work something out. I'm willing to meet up around the area from Friday (Nov 9th) for about a week from which time it will no longer be available. Price negotiable, no trades.

    Pedal steel / lap steel

    I don't play too many left hand harmonics and I'd do it the way KK Jale described. I use the palm edge too for right handed harmonics.

    Pedal steel / lap steel

    Have you got his tuning? That's the biggest obstacle when watching these kinds of vids. So many players use their own blend of tunings and unless you know what it is, it's hard to learn the song. I didn't see mention of his tuning on youtube.

    EA doubler/Greenboy F112

    I've never heard my F112's sound boxy unless I did so with eq. Don't be shy on using the eq to shape, even if it looks radical. I've found my AI Focus head sounds inherently different from a GKMB800. Also, different preamps gave me mixed results. The speaker is pretty near FRFR so it'll just be reproducing what's going in. How powerful is the EA? I can run the AI Focus at low to med-low volumes but the demands of the F112 mean it runs out of umph at louder volumes and you can hear it distorting. The GK fares better. Maybe give it some more time and fettling.

    5 string EUBs

    I play both 4 and 5 string slab and have 4 string double basses and a 5 string EUB (BSX Allegro). I don't really use the 5th string that much on the EUB. Like yourself, thought I might need it. It's a big string and hard to handle at times. When used it does offer a cool sound though. Up to you if you think you'll use it. For re-sale, you'll do better with 4 string but if you find an instrument with 5 strings you bond with, you most likely will keep it anyway :). Maybe the WAV is the way forward. I'd recommend going to play one to see if it's a workable solution for you, not everyone gets on with the stand thingy. If you do settle on a 5 string, make sure you put good strings on...it really makes a difference to the tone and playability.

    Pedal steel / lap steel

    +1 to KK's post. I play lap steel. I have an 8 string and two 6 strings all tuned differently. The 8 is tuned to E13 right now but I may return it to A6 as I seemed to gel more with that tuning. One 6 string has a multibender and is tuned C6. I use this one the most as it has humbuckers, the other lap steels hum to no end. A great resource for info and advice is The Steel Guitar Forum. Pedal steel, whilst amazing, is not for the faint hearted. Costly and heavy but worth the effort if you put in the time. The British Steelies often has pedal steels for sale and is another great source for info and advice. The hardest thing I've found is picking a tuning and going with it. There are sooo many options. Get stuck in and enjoy
