    Trace Elliot AH200

    Behringer are quite bad, especially with their power amps, Inuke NU6000 is suppose to be 6000watts, but its about a quarter of the volume of our Crown macro tech 1200. i suppose its just to get people all excited with the big numbers! not sure if Bugera are also fudging the books with their watts

    used it first time in anger yesterday for a practice, sounds bloomin lovely, only had it turned up to 3 against 2 guitarists and a loud drummer playing some raucous punk rock. need to get a rack sorted soon as it might become my main gigging amp!

    Trace Elliot AH200

    after GASing for a Trace Gp12, I've picked up one of these from eBay for what i think is a good price, id like to rack mount it and have a little draw below for my compressor and overdrive to make it all neat and tidy, i know that they are rack mountable but the one i'm getting doesn't have the rack ears, does anyone know if i can pick up some generic ears that will do the job (even if it means re-drilling or modifying them in anyway) or even if there's another way to mount the head? I'm also curious what everyone means by trace Watts vs (insert brand name here) Watts is there mathematical formula!? is it all just nonsense!? i mean is 1 trace watt is 1.2 (insert brand name here) watts or something. anyway looking forward to getting it and turning it up nice and loud!

    Thomann delivery times

    once took them 10 days to get a 32 channel mixing desk to us, and that includes the lorry being in a accident that destroyed the first order, which if where honest is not too bad! we put a massive order through every year and never wait longer than 5 days for it to turn up. all my personal orders also have also come through in 3-5 days

    Floppy Hercules microphone stand legs

    i was given a mic stand with said 'flaccid leg syndrome', i fixed it by putting small rubber washers between the legs and the section they connect to. i'm not sure if the Hercules stands have an Allen bolt you can undo and remove the leg. id hope you would be able to as even the dirt cheap studio spares stands have this. once the washers in tighten up and gives that extra bit of grip to hold them in (dont over tighten as it will just cause the rubber to rip)

    Win A Free Set of NYXL!

    currently using Thomann home brand 45-105 for £5 a pack, i think the NYXLs would probably be quite the step up.... only one way to find out!

    Best Budget OD/Distortion?

    i love the ultimate drive, went through a period of trying all the cheap and cheerful OD and this worked out as my fav. but i also have the MojoMojo still, and the orange burst by Caline as my spares (Mojo in my gig bag for using at practice and the orange burst at home in case one goes nipple north) there all good pedals i think the ultimate drive is the best for me. i also got it back when they were about £20 something a real bargain.

    Self build kits. Anybody done one?

    heres the one i got as a gift https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/LA-Electric-Bass-Guitar-DIY-Kit/PZY?origin=product-ads&campaign=PLA+Shop+-+GENERIC&adgroup=GENERIC&medium=vertical_search&network=google&merchant_id=1279443&product_id=33694d1&product_country=GB&product_partition_id=147054415958&gclid=CjwKCAjw2rjcBRBuEiwAheKeL3fLXk1DI-ZNCbP6ocMwkbdCQiBEqOShXh30hO4fyE8cqJmSRQkenBoCEVoQAvD_BwE easy to build and quite enjoyable really, the hardware needs upgrading if anything, but i like PUP thats comes with so used it. biggest pain to me was painting and finishing but it turned out well. i'll upload a picture when i find one
  12. Friend of mine used to carry his double bass to school under his arm on his BMX bike, when he reached his destination he'd jump of back of the bike landing safely with the double bass in his hands, letting the bike just roll off wherever usually crashing into stuff!

    Help identify the bass i just bought.

    TBH its not that bad of an amp! but maybe not good enough to be your username, or to keep, so think i'll be getting rid of it. i cant complain though i have the user name Laney HCM160 on something as thats the only amp i knew at the time.

    Help identify the bass i just bought.

    @kodiakblair thanks for that! once i found out the size i had one lying around. truss rod was maxed out but a couple of washes popped in and soon got the action down! just need to get a better pickguard as the blue looks terrible!
