  1. Thanks a lot for your help folks. I really appreciate it. I use two Trickfish Bullhead 1K heads that drive two Trickfish TF112 cabinets (I play in stereo) and would really like to switch to two Trickfish TF110 cabinets. I got this from their web site but I'm not knowledgeable enough to know how this really translates with volume, etc. TF112 Specifications: https://www.trickfishamps.com/cabinets/tf112/ 1 x 12” proprietary Neodymium speaker built by Eminence® HF driver (3500-20,000 Hz) 80° conical horn 300 watts peak handling Custom crossover with peak protection and HF Attenuation 2 x NL2 Combo connectors Baltic Birch Dado and Rabbet Joint Construction 8 ohms Freq.

  2. Thanks a lot. Unfortunately not what I wanted to read but what I expected frankly. I was hoping to switch out my two 1x12”s with two 1x10s due to size/weight but given I play post-rock and it gets loud in places I just don’t think I’m going to be able to do that.
  3. What are the main differences between 1x10” cabinets and 1x12” cabinets folks? And would you say a 1x10” cabinet can produce 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% of the volume that a 1x12” cabinet can deliver?
  4. Some brilliant stories here! A mate of a mate needed a bass player for his band at school so I lied and said I could play bass a little bit - I got a cheap Jazz knock off, played along to Definitely Maybe and muddled through the first few meet ups. In hindsight, none of us were particularly good so I blended in just fine.
  5. I used a Tone Hammer with two SL112s - I liked them a lot - nice and light of course but they definitely have an "Aguilar" sound. Frankly I don't think you can go wrong with them overall. For what you need, I think it depends on how loud your band play and whether you all go through the PA, etc., etc. To play safe, I'd say a TH500 driving two SL112s will cover you. I haven't used this myself but I saw some new GRBass equipment at NAMM that is VERY light - the GRBass 1x12 cabinet weighs 7.5kg whereas Aguilar's SL112 weighs 11.34kg.
  6. I tried out for an originals band a few years ago - I'm reasonable ability wise and I learned all their songs, wrote/prepared basslines and played along to their CD for a couple of weeks. I'm also very, very reliable, turn up to rehearsals and gigs on time, have my own transport, have good equipment and I do what I say. The audition went really well - good feel, no bum notes, etc., etc. They tried out another guy at the same time - I knew him well - he was a very, very good natural bassist. But I also knew he had a reputation of being very flakey. A week went by and I figured they probably went with the other guy but chased up anyway - I got a response from the band leader/singer - "I wanted to go with you, blah, blah, blah but we went with the other guy because the guitarist and drummer overruled me, etc." I responded and said I was disappointed because I really enjoyed playing with them and wished them all the best, etc. Then I got a text and email about a week later to say the other guy hadn't shown up to the two band rehearsals since the audition, wasn't responding to their messages and did I want to join. I politely declined - I didn't feel I was cutting my nose off to spite my face either - I figured I'd either be walking into a band where two of the three members didn't really want me there anyway or the band leader is a liar.
  7. And the first 50 seconds of this is so beautiful to my ears. It's pretty nice after that too but it gets a little too wacky for me towards the end.
  8. Most of the bass gymnastics music I hear is dreadful to my ears. Not crazy quick or mad playing but I absolutely love this by Rich Brown.
  9. I'd rather buy a secondhand US Standard Fender Jazz/Precision at this price point personally.

  13. 6 string with ebony would make this perfect. Great seller here folks - GLWTS.
  14. I keep on looking at this instrument. The build and workmanship is quite incredible.
  15. Somebody is going to get an amazing, amazing that is Fodera quality for the price of a new Fender.
  16. Hearing that record prompted me to quit the band I was in and get lessons. It had a profound effect on me. For me, there is electric bass pre-Jaco and electric bass post-Jaco. And I love Bright Size Life with Pat Methany too. Mental to think Methany was only 21 at the time that was recorded.
  17. I wonder how the Trace Elliot Elf and TC Electronic BAM200 compare - anyone used a BAM200? https://www.tcelectronic.com/Categories/Tcelectronic/Bass/Head-Amplifiers/BAM200/p/P0DI5#googtrans(en|en)
  18. I'm very interested in this too.
