    250w Head & 400w Cab?

    The LM is a good head.

    250w Head & 400w Cab?

    Double the Watts gets an increase in volume of about 2-3db. You haven't said how many ohm your cab is. If it’s 8 ohm, then you’re going to get about 2/3 of the amp’s power at full whack. But the chances are, you’ll never be running your amp at full tilt. If you do, then a 2nd 2x10 would make more sense than a 4 ohm 2x10. having had a MB 2x10, I know they’re not shy when it comes to decibels. 😎

    Show us your set up.

    I don't mind a decent guitar solo. It's noodling constantly that gets on my thrupneys.

    Show us your set up.

    I’d have thought if the lines are moved down to where to place your finger, it would have made sense to have the markers on the lines.

    July Composition Challenge - GET WRITING

    Here’s me 1/2 way through writing an awesome highland jig with bagpipes, panpipes and a harmonica solo in the middle. Went well with the pic too. Ah well, back to the drawing board.

    Show us your set up.

    A thread to show off your complete bass creation station. The full set up. Everything you use to make the low end in one pic. I'll start with mine from a gig I did on Sunday afternoon. I used fold back & PA rather than any backline. It sounded pretty good too! I'm surprised this hasn't been done before. I did a search & couldn't find anything.

    Bass synth?

    To nail Chris’ sound, you’re gonna need not just a few pedals, but some outboard stuff & a sound engineer too. 😂 I found I can get close enough with octave, dirt & chorus, but YMMV.

    Bass synth?

    Not watched the video, But that's an Industrial Radio bass. I believe they're an Australian company. There's a duo called Men Imitating Machines, the bassist has used one for a few years now.

    Bass synth?

    A friend of mine who's an analogue junkie has a fine selection of synths. He's got a little phatty, which is amazing at bass lines & so easy to play & twiddle knobs. He's also got an Electron Analogue Keys, sold a Prophet 8 to get a Prophet 12, had a Korg Monologue & MS20 (which he bought another & then later sold again), a Teenage Engineering OP-1 (which is his 2nd) & an Akai MPC. I need to pay him a visit again soon.

    Moog sub 37. Not better, not worse, different. Electron analogue keys is worth a look too.

    What music do you play?

    Utter crap. That's what sort of music we play. It's good fun to play, but it sounds bloody awful. Still no idea why we're doing a gig, but it'll be good to see folks faces.

    Bass synth?

    I've just moved house & working every day until Thursday (including today), but as soon as I get a chance, I shall. Better still... I'll use it for next month's compo comp. Here's my previous set up (along with some other bassists), I'm the one wearing the red t-shirt with the yellow background & the pedals are on floorboards...

    Bass synth?

    I personally prefer an expression pedal over the HH. I feel I have more control whilst I'm playing. I used to have a Moog MF-101 LPF, which is one pedal I wish I hadn't sold. It just adds so much tone. I loved those who said "Oooh, it's not true bypass, it'll be a tone sucker", but I never corrected them, I thought they'd be better off with what they have. lol Chorus at the end of the path is good for movement. Gives a similar sound to having 2 oscillators. Better still is if you can split the signal. Put octave through to the chorus & then the other side put your dirt & filter, then sum them back together.

    Bass synth?

    😂 I don't know about me making it unscathed either! Current set up is MXR BOD > PSK SDS-2 (80s distortion) > SA BEF Pro (with hot hand) > Boss CE-2 chorus. I'm not getting use of the HH in the current band (they're "Classic Crock").
