  1. Leading on from the loud fans thread, I’m looking for class D amplifiers that don’t have fans at all? I know the Trickfish Bullhead 1K doesn’t have a fan and I’m pretty sure the Phil Jones BP-800 doesn’t too? Any more?
  2. I had two TH350s, a TH500 and tried out the AG700 and TH700. All the Aguilar amplifiers use the same fan - whether they are loud to you or not is subjective but they're too loud for me. It's down to the quality of the parts used I think.
  3. I am happy to split if necessary. Bullhead 1K amplifier - £590. TF112 cabinets - £400 each.
  4. I bought this new in 2018 and it really is an amazing amplifier. Very powerful and very clean sounding. I need to gather some funds together for a new project. The Bullhead 1K amplifier is £1199 new from Bass Direct - https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Trickfish_Amplifiers.html It'd be preferable if any prospective buyer was able to come and play it using their own bass, etc. but I will ship it if necessary. I am based in Bournemouth, Dorset. Bullhead 2xTF112 cabinets (SOLD) Bullhead 1K amplifier (ON HOLD) The Trickfish team has put all of their experience and skill into making the Bullhead 1K a truly musical piece of equipment. The design goals were modest: build a pre-amp that had the lowest noise floor possible so when we record it’s nice and quiet, employ powerful EQ’s so we can shape the sound in the most musical way possible and utilize a stout, no-nonsense power amp that delivers when digging in and pouring on the heat. Trickfish kept it simple and clean so that it would be easy to operate on stage – big knobs that are easy to grab and full size switches to minimize fumbling. Featuring the acclaimed Mike Pope designed low noise pre-amp integrated with a tour proven, 1000W Class D power amplifier, the Bullhead 1K offers all of the professional features and performance expected of a Trickfish product. Housed in a robust aluminum chassis, the powerful head offers a wide variety of tone-shaping capabilities via a 4-band EQ and 8 frequency select options. Power Output: (8 Ohms) 1000 Watts Peak .05% THD Power Amplifier: Class D Power Supply: Switch-Mode Power Supply Pre-Amp: Low noise solid state Input: ¼’ Phone with switchable attenuation and rotary gain control Input Level Indicator: 10 Segment LED Ladder EQ: 4 Band Switchable Shelving Bass and Treble with selectable Hi-Pass frequencies Low-Mid and Hi –Mid -Variable Gain, Band Pass EQ with selectable frequency/ bandwidth options Master Volume: Rotary Control Line In: 1/8” mini jack Headphone Out: Stereo ¼” Phone jack Mute Switch AC Mains Power Switch with LED Indicator EFX Loop: Series/Parallel selectable, w/ground lift Tuner Out: ¼” Phone Jack Mute Footswitch: ¼” Phone Jack, Latching type switch Direct Out: 600 Ohm Balanced, XLR, Pre/Post, Ground Lift and Level control Speaker Outputs: 2 x Neutrik Combi-Connectors accept NL2, NL4 or ¼” Phone Chassis: Aluminum Removable Rubber Feet: Adhesive backed Size: (H x W x D in.) 3.39 x 15.1 x 8 Weight: 3.05 kg
  5. Thanks Graeme - just to add to this, while I did offer a complete refund, Graeme was happy with a partial refund and keeping the pedal.
  6. Darkglass Alpha Omicron with original box and papers, etc. bought new by me 10 July 2020. This pedal is in completely brand new condition. I have decided to keep my Alpha Omega Ultra. With the double distortion engine (Alpha and Omega), the Alpha Omicron delivers unparalleled versatility, harmonic rich and bone-crushing sound. Designed for bassists in need of a preamplifier to be distinctively heard in any musical context. Blend: Mixes the clean and processed signals. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine mix tuning. Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal. Drive: Sets the amount of gain in the overdriven signal. Mod: Selects or mixes between the two distinct distortion circuits: Alpha is punchy, tight with a lot of definition, whereas Omega is simply brutal and raw. Bite Switch: Boosts High Mids (2.8kHz) for additional presence and definition. Growl Switch: Shelving Bass Boost for a fatter tone and increased low end saturation.

  8. Agree completely here. I’ve played 33” scale only for the last five years or so and I’ve had good ones and not so good ones. The bit about being designed and built cleverly is important for any bass of course but absolutely essential on a bass with a low B.
  9. Whenever I see something I want there, it’s always overpriced - a Japanese Ken Smith Burner 6 (they’re rare but the one there at the moment is higher money than I’ve seen American Smiths here on BC) and an old Musicman Sabre (they are all hugely over priced - same ones for sale for literally years). I would buy something there though if the seller had great feedback.
  10. Lovely. I wish I was exaggerating when I say I've been on the lookout for a six-string version of this bass for 5 years now.
  11. They're very good players aren't they? But there really is absolutely no heart in it whatsoever... probably because, as you say Rich, any mistake may likely have serious consequences!
  12. We had this at my dads funeral as we entered the crematorium. As for me, how about 'Firestarter' by The Prodigy or maybe 'Blaze Of Glory' by Bon Jovi?
