  1. The cab has some sort of proprietary dispersion system. Seriously, the sound dispersion from this thing and the quality of the sound are impressive and it sounds bigger than a 1x12. I'll try and find out specifically what it is :)
  2. Hi Luke @LukeFRC There should be no issue :) - https://www.clearsoundmusic.co.uk Thanks
  3. Hi everyone, I couldn't find a post on these and so I wanted to give you the heads up on them. A friend of mine is now the UK distributor for these and they're designed to work with modellers *(Helix, Kemper etc) - https://www.clearsoundmusic.co.uk/ I've heard the modellers mentioned being used with Atomic Cabs, RCFs, DRXs etc and they were ok, but I still thought there was something missing i.e. that real amp feel and response. Well, last week, I had a full day in the studio with one of the powered cabs and a Helix, Kemper and my own guitar and bass amps on hand for comparison. I was really impressed with the sound, response, clarity and clout with both bass and guitar when we put the respective modellers through the Red Sound and it sounded like an amp and it was a different experience to when I heard them previously through the other cabs, particularly the very good DRXs. On this occasion, it sounded almost 3D-like and not directional at all and the sound dispersion is excellent. The Helix through one of these was particularly impressive (that Cougar bass amp model is damn good)! As it matched, and surpassed in some instances, my own amps, I might be ready to dip my toe into the World of Modelling, but not fully yet. I figure a Helix Stomp is a great place to start as I can put it on my board, integrate it and have it replacing my delay, modulation and other fx. However, it then offers an amp backup, too but also a chance to start trying/using it as my amp for bass and guitar, and I understand there's quite a few Stomp owners and users on here who rate it. That's when the Red Sound will come into play. Seriously, this is an impressive bit of kit where I could hear the difference from the 'rest of the herd'. If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Peter at Clear Sound and mention me (Cos) and that you're from the BassChat Thanks
  4. Mint condition, no box but will be well packaged. A really useful pedal that has different applications e.g. plumb in an old school/vinatge pedal that might mess with your FX chain, like a Mutron, Boss CE-2 etc OR use it like a Boss Line Selecter or Gigrig Quartermaster. Works, too, without 9V power, if you don't want the lights as indicators. No trades and PPG £50 including Special Delivery Technical blurb - https://robertkeeley.com/product/true-bypass-looper/

    Compressors

    Yes, when I had my Zoom B3, I quite liked the comps in that but I'm looking to put together a small board of bespoke, individual pedals and so I'm curious.

    Compressors

    What compressors do people favour on bass? I use a Keeley 2 knob on guitar but it didn't work very well on bass. I've heard good things about the TC Spectracomp Bass Compressor and the Wampler Ego gets great reviews for guitar, which I'm actually thinking of getting the Mini one for, but is it any good on bass? And what about the Xotic SP Comp? Thanks
  9. Bump & Trade options but I'd also consider the Wampler Mini Ego Compressor
  10. Bump and more, specific trade options added
  11. Superb, genius band, fantastic music and I'd throw in Fagen's solo albums, too. Becker's were ok, a little more poppy and angular, but put those styles together and you have Steely Dan. I've seen them a couple of times, including shortly after Becker passed away and that was a good bill with the excellent Doobie Brothers, but these days, I tend to go and watch the SD tribute bands, like Nearly Dan and the fabulous Stanley Dee. Enjoy the gig for whoever's going and it's a nostalgia trip. Looks like it might still be 'Ready' Freddie Washington (of Forget me Nots fame) on bass.
  12. Hey Folks, If you can get to one of these gigs and you love your rock, you'll love this. Recommended and a fabulous show
  13. Cloudbusting are great and we caught them last week at The Half Moon, Putney where they were in fine form. We also spoke to you after the gig, Dave and lovely to meet you @sprocketflup. C'mon, how many people in a tribute band can say that their dep is the Real McCoy, in this case, Del Palmer!!
  14. I came to my Madness Tribute gig as guitarist depping on bass for my good mate, Gary (Cetera on here) as musically, he was a busy lad and in demand Five years on, it's my main gig and luckily for me, the band have been mates for over 25 years and it's a lovely fit. However, whilst more a rock, pop and funk player, and as I've said, a guitarist, I've enjoyed this immensely. The songs are clever and fun and those Madness bass lines are a joy to play, as are ones by The Specials, The Beat, Selector etc The punters like us and it might just be a genre of music that brings together people of different musical tastes. We've also played a festival, down Denmark St, The Jazz Cafe, The 100 Club and The Dublin Castle with a member of Madness present (Lee Thompson, the sax player) and got the thumbs up rather than the finger! http://cairoeast.co.uk/TrimmedCairoGig.mp4 I've also played in a Squeeze and Crowded House/Jellyfish tribute and that, too, was great fun and presented musical challenges. I think the tribute scene is a healthy one and personally, that's where I think it's at, at the moment. Given some of the bands we're paying homage to are either disbanded or 'past their best', they work well. I've enjoyed a KISS tribute, Thin Lizzy ones and more recently, Cetera's rock anthems band, Leather and Lace, the fabulous Kate Bush tribute, Cloudbusting featuring one of our own (what a gig that was last week) and great Steely Dan tribute band called Stanley Dee. Particularly with the latter, I've seen Steely Dan the last few times and sadly, whilst a bit of a nostalgia trip, they didn't deliver for me. Stanley Dee and the long-running Nearly Dan, do. I note there's some new boys on the block, a Police and Crowded House one doing the rounds and I look forward to seeing them. Good luck with your outfits (in every sense)
  15. Hi Folks, We're playing in Sutton, Surrey this Friday if you fancy it. Free admission and we include stuff from other bands, too, like The Specials, The Beat, Selector, Bad Manners. Thanks
  16. Bump, offers considered and trade option added
  17. Bump and very near offers considered
  18. Yep, Pete Thorn is an LA session GUITARIST but what he says applies to any musician and the man talks sense and is well-respected Worth a listen and I was lucky to meet him last year at a Guitar Guitar evening and apart from being a great player, he's sound on so many levels. http://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/150097/being-a-pro-musician-pete-thorn
  19. Mine was a Greek wedding function gig where we used a couple of deps who reassured us they were au fait with the repertoire. One of the deps was a keyboard player - this guy was asking me for an E note and sticking a screwdriver in the back of his ancient keyboard and turning it to tune the bloody thing. I was using a guitar synth as part of my rig and had better sounds than him. That keyboard of his just made an awful sound. Anyway, it wasn't our finest hour but it didn't help that the crowd were pretty hostile, rude and there were problems between the Bride and Groom's respective families, which became evident throughout the evening when a couple of squabbles took place outside. Of course, we did our usual thing of placing business cards on the tables as that normally gets us a couple of enquiries or bookings. Big mistake as it had a couple of our mobile numbers on there. Well, from more or less the minute we finished, and for a good few days later, we were getting prank calls with a common one being 'Do you do funerals'? It was a Greek Tragedy! Name of the band, Jason (the singer's name) & The Argonauts.
  20. I'd imagine upgrades such as better tuners and a bridge would finish this off nicely but would there be an issue with the latter and a retrofit based on the positioning?
  21. I have a V7 4 string (Alder) and nabbed one soon after they came out from Thomann as Andertons had yet to have a distribution deal - love it and it's been serving me well for the last couple of years. Fantastic player, tones and preamp. I recently noticed that their Version 1 V3 4 strings had come down in price at Andertons to £199. I liked the look of the all black one (something of the Phil Lynott about it) and went to the shop last weekend and tried 2 of the same for contrast. I settled on one of them as to me, it sounded and played better than the other and it was also significantly lighter. In fact, being mahogany, I thought this was going to be heavy beast but it's even much lighter than my V7 (apparently, Sire body weights aren't that consistent and if weight is an issue, I suggest you try a selection of them). Someone has listed the differences between the V7 and V3 earlier on and I have to say, the Mahogany body sounds really nice, warm, punchy and focused. The bass plays really well, just like my V7 did out of the box, and once again, that preamp really delivers. I mean, how much would that alone cost and how they do it for this price is beyond me???? I know the brand has been a success story for the store and they've sold hundreds of them but quite frankly, I'm not surprised. Recommended
  22. Popular Octaver pedal offered in very good condition. No marks and sorry, no box or manual and just a small strip of velcro on the back but will be packaged well. Sorry, I've not sold on here before but I have bought and I'm known to Bassfest peeps. With that, are we allowed to do trades on this section? If we are, I'd consider one of the smaller Fender Rumble amps (25W) or a Boss VE-20 Vocal Unit or a Line 6 Wireless Transmitter £115 PPG ONO and including Special Delivery OR can meet in Central London - SOLD OFF THE FORUM Thanks
  23. Yeia Sou George From The Other Greek - Costa Greece is producing some fine music and pedals at the moment
