Total Watts

  1. I have the sunburst roadworn model and they are truly wonderful to play. If you are even semi interested/curious, do some research and buy one - they really are some of the best Mexican Fenders ever made
  2. I've played my Japanese Metro UV70 for almost 10 years and its my main bass. I was so impressed I bought another (also a Metro) - they have different strings on and used for different bands/styles of music. I find guitars played in a bit more comfortable to play - its a bit like buying a secondhand upmarket car.....
  3. I ordered four of these for three different basses several years ago and they are a wonderful idea and VERY useable 👍
  4. I have one of the originals, and if this reissue is anything like the original the buyer is in for a hell of a ride - used correctly, and through a capable PA system that can handel it, it will transform your bottom end and the keyboard player will wonder what happened
  5. I bought one around 5 years ago - lovely basses = good playing investment
  6. All great advice above - here's my two penny worth - If you take a look online (say ebay or smile amazon) and search for antivibration mats, that some people use in flats under their washing machine/dishwasher, you'll find a great solution
  7. That's right Downunderwonder - well spotted - its a Uke Bass - (see my previous post) - but an Eminence is
  8. My Kala EUB has a pre already built into it - I leave the EQ flat, as on the combo amp, for monitoring purposes, then DI to house
  9. I am a great fan of the Eminence EUB and bought an up-together, removeable neck version, second hand about 5 years ago. I took it to a string luither who adjusted it to my requirements. He did shoot the fingerboard a little, new strings, slight bridge adjustment amongst a few other small things. The biggest impact tonally for me was placing a pre-amp before my combo - made a BIG difference. Plays wonderfully and often gets comments on how great it sounds.
  10. I use an AER One for my Eminence EUB, Sadowsky and Uke Bass, also through a Bigshot - I leave the lead in the EUB all the time and mute when I need to swap between the Sadowsky and Uke. Put amp on an acoustic platform with the tilt up and you're ready to play
  11. Pop into a Camera shop in your town and pickup a s/hand case as they always have people trading in cases - good quality and save you lots too
  12. Another gem Mike - and they keep coming 😀
  13. If i'm 100% open on this thread what i'm REALLY after is - a 4-string, reverse, all maple (AAA/AAAA) with a wonderful grain - tiger strip type - with the decal in a readable position - not upside down - probably expensive …..sound possible?
