  1. That paint job is lovely. Leave the red!
  2. I had the same issue with my GP12400SMX. That was the only issue I had with it for years!
  3. I think you'll see the same for a lot of tech, including manufacturers like Apple.
  4. This is why I need a Helix again.
  5. Unfortunately, despite how interesting it is to see demos, most of the professional demos are paid for. Otherwise, why would they do it, unless they are musicians with financial stability and they just enjoy it... I've seen Darkglass products jump to higher and higher prices. £400 for a distortion pedal is absolutely INSANE. They have become 'the' distortion tone for more metal/heavier tones....and personally I think it just makes all basses sound very very similar. It sounds almost metallic and processed. The craze is: fanned fret bass, shed loads of Darkglass distortion, normally some sort of dual pickup bass....then the bass riff almost sounds like a djent style guitar riff. I still prefer Tech 21, if I'm honest. Also, you can get a Helix Stomp and probably get exactly these tones or close and thousands more.
  6. Black? Hmmm....not very interesting....should have done something like shell pink.
  7. Maybe for now, but as the current prices rest in place for a while, people might want a second hand one and thus demand will rise, which will mean the value could be a little better 2nd hand compared to what it used to be. Same with Rays. You can't buy one for less than 2k ish now.
  8. P basses are great for digging in!
  9. I was, I guess, lucky to invest in most the high end Musicman and Fender stuff I wanted before significant price hikes hit about 3 years back....with the problems with the £ etc. A new 5 HH Bongo (albeit not a cool limited run like the above) was less than half that new. Still doesn't detract from the fact the linked bass is stunning.
  10. Very clean, precise and clear. I often think there is a touch of the Trace sound to some of the cleaner Genz sounds.
  11. I remember the LM2 and LM3 being excellent pedal platforms...a bit like a clean Fender amp is for guitarists. I think it looks pretty cool. It stands out. Then again I like Bongo basses.
  12. I think it keeps dropping then levelling out...sorry I can't remember! Keep an eye on google!
  13. I'm back in decision mode with this. Seen the HX Stomp drop to £390....seen the LT for around £720-740. However the main Helix floor has risen to £1150-1200+ from around £900-950 when I first tried one.
  14. HAHAHAHHA! I thought the same with that insane EVH guitar. They talk about case candy like it makes up for about £5k of the price. You get special plectrums. Thanks.
  15. Personally, if you have no amp on stage, I would go all out on a full on Helix and enjoy it!
