  1. Off the back of the post about the Sire M2, I started looking at the M series with some sort of interest. Anyone playing these? What do you think? Maybe I need to review some!
  2. Anyone know off hand what mics are used and placement for SH’s EV loaded Bass Cabinets? Its proving difficult to find out! The rest of the signal chain only took 2 minutes to find out!
  3. Prompted by a post elsewhere on BassChat, I replied with this link to a set of very helpful videos by @Sheldon Dingwall. I am reposting here in the Repairs And Technical forum and will ask to make this a sticky for future reference.
  4. Gamble is a good guy, deal with confidence.
  5. There is a "potential difference" (= voltage difference) between the earth of your bass gear and your PA system. This could be caused by a bad earth, a wiring issue in the venue, being plugged in to two different ring mains and a few other issues too. As some equipment (like effects units) have no earth connection, you are essentially not grounded and this can also help create the problem. Ideally each piece of gear should be 'grounded' to the same earth potential - pretty difficult to all have just one earth lead connected to the same earthing connection, but that would surely solve the problem! (Multiple points connected to earth in your signal path can cause noise problems too which is also a pain in the backside!)
  6. Thank you! Yeah, the sofa should just get the sale for being there!!
  7. I have to say, I am having a renewed love for P basses at the moment. Congrats, what a pair!
  8. Having to re-add pictures as they strangely disappeared...
  9. That's weird. My pictures have disappeared for me.
  10. Having thought carefully I have decided that I will let one of my HD112 cabinets go. I have a CN212 and another HD112 that pair nicely for a super modular rig, but for the most part, at the moment I rarely even need a backline owing to the super PA that my current band are using (IEMs etc). So, this one is up for sale to get some much needed funds back in the pot. As everyone seems to love my SOFA PORN, I have given this tike the same treatment. The cabinet has a light scuff on the grill as can be seen, some small scuffs on the metal corners but generally in very good condition. The fitted official cover has of course been on the cabinet all the time when not in use and show signs of wear too. Collection is very much recommended (I am south of Norwich on the A11 so really easy to get to) Shipping will have to be arranged; I have the necessary boxes already, will just need you to sort and take responsibility for that. Owing to a personal situation here, it's difficult to arrange. Priced with that in mind, I will do a deal for a speedy collection.
  11. Ah! ha ha yes! It is just that. Dingwall put strap buttons at the higher position, which makes the bass kick out a little and, if I am switching between basses also meant that I couldn't use the same strap for both basses (as I use Dunlop Dual strap locks - which Dingwall put on their premium instruments) - So, rightly spotted, there's a button in the mid position. It can of course be removed no problem but both buttons I suppose do offer a little protection when the bass is sat on floors etc. Hope that helps!
  12. I still have my set of pitch pipes and my very first book I learnt from that my Dad got me just after he got my first bass for me. That would have been 1989. I still have my little Marshall bass amp too from the same year. The book I still use to teach with and the amp sometimes comes out for practicing, though it needs a service.
  13. Bought at the start of the year, this bass was to be part of a brand new band, but owing to an unfortunate series of events in my life, I had to step out of the band who have subsequently just finished recording the first album. This is a tough one as I really do love this bass and am a massive supporter of Dingwall. I am however sitting here with 4 four string basses and a hole in my bank account. Shipping to be arranged by and will be the responsibility of the buyer. The bass will be packed safely in the original Dingwall shipping boxes. Purchase by bank transfer. Collection of course is welcome. This model and specification is currently £1250 at Bass Direct. Here's the specifications: http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Comb_4_Natural_Gloss.html Not the sexiest of photographs, I'll get some better ones done in some decent light, but actually this bass is stunning

Pictures are from the previous owner (I can remove if I have overstepped the mark) in which you will see that the hardware has been tastefully upgraded to gold - official Ibanez mono-rail bridge pieces and YES Gotoh tuning keys are fitted Shipping to be arranged by and will be the responsibility of the buyer. The bass will be packed safely in shipping boxes. Purchase by bank transfer. Collection of course is welcome.

  15. You know that feeling where you contemplate selling everything you really don't need and keep the bare essentials? Yeah, something like that.

      Noooo. You just need a bigger house, or an extension, or trade away a child. Any of those is acceptable surely!

      Oh mate.. I DO need a bigger house WITH an extension. Tough one on the kids actually. I kind alike them both. Maybe I could get the older one to do some Saturday work on the oil rigs to bring in some extra cash. Possibly a bit on the little side to operate the cranes and the like though.

      Anyone know the lottery numbers coming up??? Or has won the lottery and not sure what to do with the odd 100 thousand? lol

      It's worse than that for me.  Sometimes I end up in a bad place mood-wise, which results in feeling like I should sell all the gear I have and then start again from scratch.

      Inevitably, this happens in moments of deep, desperate, despairing dissatisfaction with my sound. Don't judge me - we've all chased tone dragons, I'm sure.

      Thankfully, most times I manage to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater and keep a vaguely sensible head on my shoulders.
