  1. If you could only choose one overdrive pedal?

    Maybe not the tone you are going for, but my go to drive is the SolidGold Fx Beta or their newer Beta Dlx (which is a Beta with a boost). No loss of low end on the Beta circuit, in fact a bump in the lower region of the EQ to my ears. With the adition of the boost on the Dlx, that can be placed before or after the drive section, you effectively have 3 tones (Clean, drive, + drive/fuzz'ish). You will not get the highs you are looking for on the Beta unfortunately... The Moog Minifooger Drive is a very nice pedal also, a bit on the darker side rather than the sparkly highs you look for. I own an original V.1 DG B3K and really like what it does, it has crispiness and articulation but I do feel that the low end suffers on that pedal a bit... I like putting an octave through it, it adds an amazing texture to my sound.
  2. Let me know if you want to move on your ED Dirt Transmitter fuzz. Cheers!
  3. Very interesting thread. I feel awkward at times when listening to LostProphets after what Ian Watkins was acussed of. On a less disturbing note, a bassist friend of mine stopped listening to Billy Sheehan completely when he found out that he was part of the Church of Scientology.
  4. First of all, apologies if the post should have posted in an alternative location but was not sure. I have been trying to send a PM to both Skol303 and Gelfin with regards to not being able to find my Feedback thread in the forum, but a message shows up stating that non of them can receive messages. Is this just me or is someone else having the same issue? Just thought it was worth flagging up. Cheers!
  5. +1 on the Stage Bug from Radial. It is super small and reliable, it has saved me a couple of times as a backup DI.
  6. Hi LFM, Is this SKB's newer model or the MKI version. The latch gives this away instantly as it was improved on the 2nd generation. Cheers, Byron
  7. Tremolo suggestions

    I might be a bit late but the Z.Vex Sonar is a great Tremolo. I have one and could not be happier.
  8. [quote name='Jimryan' timestamp='1504948857' post='3368460'] Ive tried this with one of the older model ones (butterfly catches). All ready to trial it on a trip to rehearsal, two squire precision, a 4 string and a 5 string. Both fit fine, left my room, went down the first step on the stairs, the catches decided no (not hard, only took a light breeze for them to pop open even with a padlock fitted). Lots of banging and watching in slow motion as half the case and both basses made their way to the bottom of the stairs very quickly. Didn't try it again. In the end I toured with just one bass, but every time it come off the conveyor the case was in pieces. On returning home went through a lengthy complaints procedure to SKB. Originally they just sent new latches, but in the end caved and sent me the newer model with a combination lock. You'd probably be safe trying it with a newer one. [/quote] Thanks for the advice Jimryan. I am certainly looking at the newer model as I believe that the older (MKI) SKB had many issues with the locking system. Janek Gwizdala uses one (I believe it is a MKII) and he showed on his Vlog that he has to lock the case with zip ties on the handles due to the TSA lock eventually breaking, which leads me to think that the weakest point is the latch mechanism as it suffers from quite a lot of stress during travel. I will get one anyways as I like the concept of the whole Bass Safe thing and will see how a J and a Mustang fit.
  9. Hipshot Kickass Bridge.

    Big fan here of the Badass bridges... have them on most of my Fenders. Great to see an alternative that sees to work, I will have to try one.
  10. Sold - Rodenberg 728B NG+ Drive and boost

    I have one, amazing piece of kit. The boost is super useful and musical.
  11. Delay options

    The EAR AD4096 is a monster of a pedal. I used it tonight on a gig and the expand footswitch combined with a bit of knob action makes it trip with all the lovely analog pitch bending and feedback. The EHX Memory Boy is a nice compact and inexpensive delay that I use a lot. The modulation can go crazy and it can self oscillate very easily.
  12. £500-650 is the going price for a CIJ Mustang Bass, I wish I could find a 70's one for £700! The prices on offset Fenders guitars are going up a lot lately. I'd like to put the JMJ sig up against my CIJ and see why it's worth that extra bit of cash. I do dig it though and probably get one in the future anyways.
