  1. Just took receipt of a Seymour Duncan STC-3M3 preamp to kit out my Sterling Ray5. Not only was Mark aka @ebenezer a breeze to work with, but he was happy to wait for me to get my ducks in a row...aaaaaaand, after reading my posted question on recommended upgrade paths for the Ray5, he reached out to me. Splendid chap
  2. Looks very much like a BTB405QM in transparent black
  3. Damn.... That's an excellent rig right there. The Blacksmith is insanely good and those cabs are super tight. GLWTS

  5. Yeah, the more I think about it, I'm just going to have to get a custom pick guard made to accommodate the larger (non-lugged) pickup.
  6. Well, the only other option would be a new plate - which isn't the end of the world
  7. Great video. Problem is the shape of the SD 5. That it is a rectangul and doesn't have the 2 bass lugs and 1 treble lug is just beyond my understanding. Were its a 5 string version of the 4, it wouldn't even be a competition I suspect... Someone must've thought it a good idea though

  9. Oddly enough, that is kinda how I feel too - I've had a Lankland before and the poles would not have worked, but for a MM/EB bass, I think the poles add a certain authenticity - but it's all about the sound I guess.. Y'know - that may well be the case - the preamp is a good start - roughly the same price (within a tenner) so nothing ventured I suppose!!!! I bow to you sir, and say "thank you"
  10. I think I will bite the bullet on the Retroglide - a nice Father's Day contribution means I can afford it (I need gigs!!!!!) What pickup have you been looking at? I would love a Nordstrand - my Ibanez sounds monstrous - but I just can spend that much - hence me looking at the Kent Armstrong. Any thoughts would be great
  11. I think I am sold just from the Chowny bass video!!!! Rich tone that i was not actually expecting. BTW @Steve Browning, did you keep your stock pickup?
  12. Interesting - I am unfamiliar - but let me Goo Gill the heck out it - many thanks Steve!
  13. I remember reading a Bass Player article from 1996, that said that sometimes using an EQ pedal is a way cheaper option than swapping out the electronics.... and I buy into that. I really do. I just want to get the most out of the instrument that I can. I am definitely not going to buy for buying's sake, but if, for example, the Kent Armstrong route is a good one, for under £60, and it bumps the sound into a new level of richness, then I am all for that. But I will play and A/B against my Nord kitted Ibanez first
  14. I will definitely look into those two, and any others that I can find. Many thanks. The UK market is still very new to me (only been here 2 years), so this is all invaluable information. And yeah, I haven't even received it hahahaha
  15. It's the traditional MM style with two lugs on the bass side and one on the treble. Attached is the bass I'm waiting on.
