  4. How can I increase the output on an SWB-1 (active)?

    Ok. The original SWB-1s that Scott was making had hotter pickups. We sacrificed a bit of that for better articulation. Your boost pedal sounds like it's doing the trick though.

    Did you drop me a mail? Apologies if I missed it. Are the two older SWB-1s Chowny Branded ones? - Stephen

  7. Opinions please : Inlays for 2018 CHB-1 Basses

    [quote name='mark76' timestamp='1505819457' post='3374506'] It's neck and neck so far. [/quote]
  8. Hi Guys (The mods have kindly given me permission to ask here) Busy moving production of the CHB-1 basses from China to India (better quality by FAR) and need to choose fret marker inlays. I can have blocks or crowns? What would your pick be?

    A couple of things... Bass Guitar Magazine will be giving me some magazines to give away. So look out for those too. And... does anybody have a Tonehammer 500 they can bring? I want to check it out (as I'm using one for NAMM and I've never played with one before) - S

  13. New Retrovibe Bass Model

    HELLO! I was summoned and I have appeared. So Retrovibe and Chowny are working together in an official capacity. We were already using a lot of the same production facilities and working fairly closely together. So it made sense to combine it all. This allows us to consolidate orders, shipping, manufacturing buying power and marketing, have a central UK contact for the factory etc. It's a growing enterprise and works very well for all of us. So currently we make all the Retrovibe bass designs under license - and Retrovibe work with us like a sort of in-house design team. We still have our own models. And we also have Retrovibe models released under the banner of "Retrovibe by Chowny" We have a similar arrangement with Scott Whitley to make the SWB basses under license. Working together EVO has been redesigned and greatly improved. We have a version with Davie504 (linked above) and also an upgrade to the existing one here [url="http://chownybass.com/product/evo-standard/"]http://chownybass.co...t/evo-standard/[/url] . Both of these feature the Retrovibe Stinger '77 Pre-Amp as standard. All of us (Scott Whitley, David from Retrovibe and I) will all being going to NAMM together. Which will be a laugh I hope that makes sense.
