    Peavey TNT 130 vs Ashdown electric Blue 180

    another for Peavey. the Ashdown Blueline 1x15 i had sounded terrible, ended up chopping it half to use the 1x15 as a cab with my trace head for home practice. use a TNT and Peavey mark 4 head at a practice room and both sound great. never tried to lift one though!

    Mosky B Box

    is the 9V in on the top of this? i have the Caline orange burst and the 9v in is in a stupid place that stretches out my 9V splitter

    Light, warm (and cheap!) drive pedal

    I took a mojomojo of my little board for one of these, didn't think you could get better and cheaper! Great sounding pedal (to me) for hardly anything.

    New bands first EP

    https://weareoursouls.bandcamp.com/releases My new punk band released our first EP a few weeks back, we recorded for free in a ballet shoe factory (pretty punk rock yeah?) and i did the mixing and mastering so grand total it cost us £0 though it may aswell put on here!

    Trace Elliot, tell me about it

    I've recently picked up an series 6 AH200 for £100 and it is a beast, currently preferring it over my Genz 12.2, something i never thought id say, its heavy but i make up for it with 2 light weight genz 1x12's so best of both worlds! i might keep my eye out for a 500 now I've seen this thread!

    Strap with some grip

    thanks for the offer but its a bit out the way for me! and thanks to every one else for input! i think my issue with the leather straps and comfort style straps is the width, find anything wider than the 2" irritates me around the neck, also find that it can get quite sweaty underneath them. I've manged to borrow a cotton and a denim strap as well as i thin leather strap to try if any work. if all else fails its time for light weight machine heads but seems quite the expenditure on a bass that cost me about £30 to build!

    Another “accidental” deko purchase

    the only one i got that had an obvious issue was a PB50 which had a jack socket you couldn't get a jack in, 5 min job and the bass only cost around £23!

    Strap with some grip

    I've recently really started enjoying the tone and play-ability of my mongrel precision MM bass, the only issue is due to the light weight body and heavy neck/ tuners its suffering from severe neck dive! any know of any straps that are pretty grippy? i usually use Ernie Ball poly straps that are 2" wide and nice a long. i'm not a massive fan of leather straps or ones that are thick or padded. what materials am i looking out for denim? cotton? unobtanium-nickle-oxide alloy? any advice would be great!

    Crackling amp pots. Repairable?

    I use colclene PCS at work to keep 10+ amps from crackling (some about 25 years old), on the back it says its for missile guidance systems so gota be good!

    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

    Trace Elliot AH200

    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!
