  1. +1 to the above advice. I switch between my db and my 5 string EUB which is a different scale. You'll be fine
  2. Here you go. I don't take mine apart, it just stays at home. For the bottom section, it's 20 cm from the floor to the section the bass sits on at the rear and 24 cm at the front, if that makes sense.The bottom sides are slanted so the bass tilts. Also, Once I put the bass on the stand, I reach under and loosen the end pin until it drops to the floor which helps hold the bas in the stand more securely IMO.
  3. I'll get some pictures this weekend.
  4. I bought one of these too and agree, they work great and the rubber is too thin, but easily fixed.
  5. Are you looking for a portable bass? As stated these smaller ones will have less volume than a standard size double bass. If you are wanting portability the Chadwick Folding bass is a winner. Lots of reviews and accolades.
  6. Here is a page from a Helix whiz. He's created some 810 sims with parametric eq blocks on the Helix. You may be able to use the settings and see what you come up with if you have similar eq devices. http://drtonelab.com/lab/8x10/
  7. I don't remember if you had used a GK MB800 with the F112 (the setup I use). Seems a good match. I nearly went for a Quilter from all the hype but have stuck with the GK. Glad there is another alternative out there to use with the F112.

Bassist Available - Professionally trained musician with extensive work experience in the USA and UK playing in a variety of bands (function, rock, blues, jazz, cabaret, originals) and in a variety of settings (clubs, cabaret, cruise ships, West End, studio) using 4 and 5 string electric basses, EUB and double bass.

PM for more details and contact info.
  9. This is how I felt too when I started using a Fearless F112. You're not stuck with the sound of the cab, you can make it sound like just about anything you like. Using a HX Stomp with the F112 is like heaven
  10. Would love to see some pics. :) Not certain what this means.
  11. I've owned both a V1 VT and now own a VTDI. I much prefer the latter with the blend and the two buttons to enable/disable Bite and Speaker. I always carry it as backup ( using a HX Stomp now but the Tech21 was the main pedal) as it's such a great preamp. I wish they'd make a deluxe version of the VTDI to save presets. I'd buy that!
  12. I played a gig last night and didn't "need" to bring my rig (F112/GBMB800/HXStomp) Using their Ampeg SVT PR4/HLF410, it was instant regret not having my setup. The Ampeg was so mucky and booming sounding on stage, with no end of twiddling, and I couldn't hear myself all night until I asked the sound man to put some bass in my monitor...lol. If I had my rig it would have been full, clear bass all night.
  13. I used my 1025 for it's first recording session today. The engineer was remarking on how modern it sounded and it wasn't until I heard the first track played back that I understood what he meant. Even just using the P, it had a less vintage quality to it than I thought. I played a track with an old Tokai P with cruddy dead strings which sounded more old school. I still preferred the Yammy for playability and tone though.
  14. Welcome to the F112 club :). The lows seem overwhelming at first but once you figure out how you amp and eq best works with the speaker you'll be in tone heaven. I still haven't found use for my second F112 in all the gigs I've played the last 2-3 years except as a PA for one gig :).
  15. I set up some patches that have compression at the beginning and again at the end and then use the foot switches for cabs or effects. The compressors seem quite good. Here is an example of what I use. The foot switches turn on cabs for old school colour and a eq boosts. It's easy to hit 6 blocks though. Clean212.hlx
