  1. My concern is when I share with other band members and equipment can get a bit stacked.
  2. Hi As the title says I'm looking for a hard case for my Fender P. It should be as compact as possible. Would a Hiscox be a good bet? Would also be interested in recommendations/opinions on the alternative option of a very protective gig bag. I don't need anything to tour the world with, just a decent case for protecting the bass when filling up a car for gigging every few weeks. Cheers
  3. My surf/instrumental band does in 14 "songs" in 45 mins. A typical gig is 28 songs, plus one or two encores.
  4. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  5. The Shadows did it in '65. That's Hank Marvin on lead bass.
  6. I've always been intrigued by the possibility of a "guitar" scale length bass. What guage strings are on that?
  7. You'll need to fit a piezo pickup too, unless your intention is to play it acoustically. I've thought about going something similar to your plan, so I'll be interested in seeing how this works out. Good luck.
  8. That's a cool looking bass! Good luck sorting out a jack.
  9. A quick Google tells me that's a 6x10 cab. On the assumption that as most production bass drivers are 4 or 8 ohms, each driver is wired to get equal power, and as your cab is 6ohms, I'd guess you have 4 ohm drivers. (Thats each "pair" of drivers wired in parallel to give 2 ohms, and the three "pairs" are in series to give 6 ohms). So, that means you could wire the speakers to give 2.66 ohms, which is in the ballpark you need. (That's wiring "pairs" of drivers in series to give 8 ohms, and wiring all those in parallel to give 2.66 ohms). You'd need to be sure of each drivers impedance though, best trying to look at the back of one. Probably best if someone checksy maths and assumptions though - I've had a couple of beers!
  10. My first thoughts exactly. The J pickup ruins it for me
  11. I use an bicycle inner tube, cut down and tied into a kind of nest. Works very well
  12. Was having the P pick-up the 'wrong' way-round for tonal reasons or fashion?
  13. I'm no expert, but I be surprised if there was any difference in performance or sound. I expect manufacturers choose 4 or 16 ohms depending on which is cheapest, which itself will probably be determined by the most commonly used in their other products or which the speaker manufacturer sells most of. The only way to be sure is to take your combo apart and see what the label says.
  14. Yes. Either that, or the two internal speakers are 16 ohms each and wired in parallel.
  15. Thanks for all the replies. I've actually managed to use two "normal" knobs with grub screws - just wrapped a fair bit of plumbers tape around them. The neck is currently in s g-clamp in an attempt to fix the bow. Oh, and I'm going to ignore the huge cracks in the body and call it road wear! What I didn't mention is that this is actually the bass I learned on, and was my Christmas present in 1989! It's been at a mates house for years in less than perfect conditions.
