  1. Hi fellas, and thanks for the responses. I have been using the Tecamp and Ashdown for the last year over here in France, but to get the best out of it, you have to drive it a bit, (as I did in the UK,) but a 15" bass cab and an 800 watt amp in a small cafe where volume is very restricted is just not working, (it's a duo in case I haven't mentioned it yet.) My intention is to add a little more power when required by whatever means, but control the volume and tone with the PJ amp built into the flight case. Using the Retroglide to do this would be one of a few uneducated options I made in my initial request for help on this thread, but from what I can gather from your replies, this would introduce the colouring from the Retroglide which at best will change the tone of the PJ, and at the worst, ruin it. Putting the idea of the Retoglide to one side, (and with a Phil Jones powered cab as my target when funds become available,) what can I do to give me this extra bit of power using only the Flight case, the Tecamp cab and an inexpensive bit of kit between the two, bearing in my it's only a temporary fix, and it won't happen very often. Also, any ideas on existing powered cabs that would do the trick, but are a little less expensive than the PJ powered cab. Absolutely any ideas or suggestions will be more than welcome....... Many thanks fellas.....
  2. Thanks for that Stub. You may have saved me a large amount of cash....
  3. A couple of questions Stub... What is, or what are 20 V P-P? How do you break an earth connection/earth loop, and is it a speaker cable jack lead, or guitar cable jack lead I would need..? Thanks for your reply... Much appreciated.
  4. I have just purchased a Phil Jones Flightcase 150 off the rather splendid, and very good friend of mine Richardd, (with two d's...,) who is a regular on this forum, and as such, I am now looking for some advice/ guidance. I recently moved from the UK to France, and very quickly realised that my UK pub rock rig...a 2x12 and a 1x15 were completely over the top for my coffe bar and bistro requirments here. The PJ Flight case I bought of Richardd is absolutely perfect for 80% of the gigs I play, as most bars etc just cannot take a band with a drummer due to their small size, and as well as this, the French just don't want volume as part of there night out. So...my question is this..... On the odd occasion where I need a bit more power, can I use my other gear to help create more volume? (This other gear being an Ashdown Retroglide head, and a Techamp 1x15 cab.) With what I know at the moment, the only way to boost the PJ flight case is to buy one of the PJ powered cabs, (which I would love, but can't afford,) but that seems a rather expensive way to deal with an infrequent situation. So, pardon my ignorance, but here are what I THINK may be options, but I do need some expert guidance.................. Does it have to be a PJ powered cab, or are there less expensive alternatives which will not compromise the brilliant sound of the flight case combo amp.......? Can I somehow put my Retroglide between the Flight case and the TechAmp speaker...(plug the line out of the PJ into the input of the Retrroglide) and use the Retroglide as a power amp........? Use a 'Y' guitar lead splitter, and use both the PJ and the Retroglide......? Put a power amp between the PJ and the speaker cab, and if so, what sort of power amp? As you can see, I really haven't got a clue, but hopefully, some of you might be able to figure out what I am getting at, and help me out.... Cheers guys, and thanks in advance...
  5. Thanks Donslow..... I will whip the chrome cover off and have a visual inspection of the wiring.... I recently moved to France, so might be a bit of a trek for me to get it too you, but thanks for the very kind offer...
  6. Hey guys.... I have a Fender Jazz Select, and even with both pickups wound back into the 'off' position, the tone knob still seems to act as a volume control. Very little gets through with all the bass removed, but as you wind the tone control round to increase the treble sound, it also introduces volume back into.the mix.... So to recap, both volume controls 'off', yet the tone control is acting like a volume control, particularly when turned in the 'treble' direction..... Any ideas on what the problem is, and how to rectify...Thanx...
  7. Hi Paddy, I really do rate all Eden gear... Completely and utterly bomb proof, and some of the best gear ever in terms of pre owned value...
  8. I have now moved this sale post to Amps and Cabs, so Moderators please remove this from Basses for sale.... Once again apologies....
  9. Having just bought a Tecamp S115 from Deedee, (a regular on Basschat,) my splendid Eden D210 MBX is now for sale. It is the 'D' class model, which is the flagship range of Eden cabs, and sounds fantastic as either a stand alone cab, or paired up with another cab to give massive amounts of power... It is the 8ohm model, and is rated at 500 watts, so will easily handle small to medium sized gigs on its own. The most useful feature of this is its tilt back facility, which is great for small venues, when you are standing right next to the cab.... It can also be stood on its end giving an upright 2x10", or laid horizontally giving a bit more low end if required. A built in adjustable horn also helps taylor the sound for more top end bite if required. Also, I had spring loaded side handles installed, and rubber feet fitted on one end to make lifting and positioning the cab easier, without causing damage or wear to the cab. It is only one and a half years old, and as such in great condition. At over £750 new, and still in production, I believe £230 to be a great price, but feel free to put in offers, as if it doesn't go soon, I might be getting the elbow from my good lady... Google the Eden website for all the tech spec, but remember this is the 500 watt version..... Eden D210 MBX. Thanks for looking folks.....PS...I am based in Lichfield, Staffordshire...
