  1. [size=5][u][b]Marshall DBS 7400 amp head, and 7412 cab (4 ohm) - Cab SOLD[/b][/u][/size] Absolutely killer amp, which i'm selling as it's just being used as a pre-amp for home recordings, and over-kill practice amp. As such, it's been kept in my bedroom for the last 15 years, and as such has been generally looked after and kept nice and warm and dry. I bought the rig from new around '93 - 94, and it was gigged extensively when I was in my 20's, and has never let me down. Not once. For portability, I'm currently using a Streamliner and a big baby 2, but I've just plugged this in and to be honest, this just sounds absolutely fantastic. There really is a big difference between something like this and and a digital head. It has to be heard to be believed to be honest. It's super responsive, has lots of attack and a really full frequency range capable of shaking the venue you're playing in (or your house if you're like me), which make it an absolute joy to play. The rig is built like a tank, and apparently the guy from Muse uses these amps. [size=5][b]The amp is rated 400 watts. [/b][/size] head with a pre-amp where you can blend from valve (has a 12ax7 in it) to solid state, and anywhere inbetween for wide tonal variations. - Hi and low inputs - A really good compressor - 2 band EQ - Hi and Low boost buttons (which make a real difference) - Switchable 9 band graphic EQ (Either using the button the front, or footswitch jack on the back). - Di (with level button) - Line out with independent volume knob - 2 speak-on connectors for the speaker (why you would ever need 2 speakers with this is beyond me, but each to her/his own...) [size=5][b]The cab is rated at 800 watts at 4 ohms[/b][/size]. The cab is all you need and deliver earth shaking bass, and surprisingly cutting treble if the amp is eq'd that way. Sounds absolutely amazing without the need for a sub or extension speaker. [size=5]I used to gig this rig in a loud rock band with a loud drummer and two loud guitarists, and I never had to turn up more than 9 - 10 o'clock. It's seriously loud and punchy![/size] Full details can be found in the original handbook which I've still got somewhere, but it's a case of finding it. A digital version can be found here though: [url="http://www.marshallamps.de/fileadmin/_marshall/downloads/all-manuals/DBS7400-Handbuch.pdf"]http://www.marshalla...00-Handbuch.pdf[/url] To transport this to and from gigs, I used to get in a fiat uno (with the seats folded down), with the amp in the footwell, and my bass would just slide down the side of the cab. So although it's big, it isn't too difficult to transport. The cab has pretty heavy duty rubber castors so it's easy to push around. I just wouldn't advise trying to get the cab up a flight of stairs on your own though, but with 2 people it's fine. As you'll see, some of the vinyl has come off the back of the cab due to repeated sliding in and out of the back of my car, and unfortunately the white plastic Marshall signature broke off years ago. With the head, I seem to have lost the button for the compressor which you can hopefully see from the photos, but it's still easy to use by pressing the blue square in, and it all works brilliantly.

Due to the size and weight (these things were really made to last), it's going to have to collection only I suspect. Looking for cash ideally, and Prepared to split if I have to. Not really looking for trades, but I suppose there's no harm in asking. Thanks for looking!
  2. Cheers for the reply. It's possible. There's seems to be surprisingly official information about them on the internet. I've posted the question on the Marshall forums, but no response yet. Thanks for your reply anyway!
  3. Hi, I wonder if anyone can help please? I have a Marhall DBS 7412 cab, and am trying to confirmation of the weight of it. I've got a figure of 74kg in my head, but I can't remember where I got this from or whether it's accurate. Can anyone help please? Thanks in advance.

  5. Not strictly bass related, but I really want one of these! https://www.arturia.com/products/hardware-synths/matrixbrute/overview
  6. [quote name='project_c' timestamp='1472065786' post='3118208'] Perhaps it's because they're a new company, they may not have too much in stock yet. Let us know how you get on with your order, hopefully it'll be ok. It's a little bit dishonest to not mark items as 'out of stock' on their site, and take orders on stuff that they don't have but let's see how it goes, maybe it's just early days. [/quote] Mine have just been delivered. All looks ok, but haven't had time to put the on my bass yet. So they took just over two weeks, which is fine if you're not in a hurry for them.
  7. [quote name='project_c' timestamp='1472055652' post='3118079'] Well, turns out they only had 1 pack of my strings in stock, so they've offered to refund the whole thing, or send one pack now and the rest in a month's time (I ordered 4). I'm giving them the benefit of doubt and going with the second option, fingers crossed I'm not going to get shafted. (I paid with Paypal so I should be ok in case any shafting occurs). [/quote] Hmmm. Same thing happened to me; I ordered a 2 sets at the weekend, then had an email saying they were out of stock and offering either a refund or to post them on Friday. Not the best start...
  8. Have you checked the truss rod is at the right tension?
  9. Any sound clips of the filters in action?
  10. Gorgeous! Definitely has personality. Perhaps if I win the lottery...
  11. This one for me for some reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fwOTDaO4bg A bit cheesy, and is always better if you don't look at him singing it.
  12. [quote name='EBS_freak' timestamp='1457027865' post='2994650'] I would wager that a lot of pub bands haven't got a PA capable of putting a band through effectively. [/quote] Yep, that's a good point. Or if they have, they don't always know how to use it.
  13. Firstly I admit I've never tried IEM's, but a bug bear of mine from an audience stand point, is poor sound when a whole band goes through a PA for pubs. Personally I think it sounds much better just putting the vocals through the PA, and everything else goes through the back line with the volume dictated by how loud the drummer is. Obviously for larger venues a PA is needed. It appears that I'm in a minority though! To be honest I'm rarely impressed by the sound of professional bands in a large venue where the sound is: Bass - an indeterminable rumble, the guitars - a trebly mess, and the only thing that sounds good is the drums and occasionally the vocals. I think some engineers try and recreate the sound of a CD where nothing has any room to breathe, which in my humble, or possibly misguided opinion, is the wrong way to go for live music. I'll get my coat....
  14. Great stuff. Ideal groove for those slightly hungover Sunday mornings. Like the way happy Jacks avatar seems to be in sync too! (Or perhaps I drunk more than I thought I had last night).
  15. Squire for me definitely, if only for the bass line on roundabout ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkGzjIq4aZI ). Never really got on with The Who (not that I like everything Yes did by any means either), so am sure there's some great bass lines I've missed by Entwistle.
  16. I'm probably a bit of a hoarder by nature, with two marshall stacks taking a wall in my bedroom. They look great! ;-) My advice is to keep it if possible and get it repaired when it's convenient. I always dislike getting rid of kit though...
  17. Yep, it's a right can of worms! Welcome to the wonderful world of bass set up. Don't think there are any short cuts really, probably best to start with your manufacturers recommended specs and and tinker with string height, pup height, neck relief, and different strings until you're happy. Takes a lot of trail and error, and compromise between different variables. I spent years playing before I even touched the truss rod, and learning how different set ups affect the sound and playability was the most rewarding thing I could have done. Enjoy it.

    Mr. Foxen

    Bought some tubes for my streamliner, plus one a vintage Mullard to start experimenting with tube rolling. Very helpful, and tubes arrives safe and sound and has opened a whole world of fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend dealing with him.
  19. Good to see Shropshire folk on the forum, you'll have to give us a shout if you're playing anytime!
  20. So many to choose from! I keep coming back to John Paul Jones / John Bonham when I need some inspiration. Driving, melodic, and most importantly, they know how to groove.
  21. Excellent, cheers guys, you've been a big help.
  22. Many thanks for your comments, much appreciated.
  23. I've been wanting to delve into the world of flatwound strings, but apart from a brief experiment with a set of chromes, am not really sure what set to get. A brand that seems to get consistent recommendation is La Bella, so I decided to take the plunge and buy a set for my jazz bass. The only problem, is that there seems to be an extensive array of La Bella flats to choose from, and I don't know which ones to go for! Can anyone help please? I'm interested in playing funk, soul, and possibly rock, but flats seem more versatile than they're sometimes given credit for with some metal players even using them. Anyway, could other La Bella users let me know what sort they are using so I can get a consensus please? And do I go for the top loading or through body option? Many thanks!
