  1. Shifting pedals that have made way for the Helix on my pedalboard, I've got a Line6 M9 Stompbox Modeller for sale. Fabulous pedal, which I brought when I downsized from the larger M13. Full of top quality Line6 goodness for bass. It's been indestructible and dependable and has formed the centre point of my pedal board for a few years. The only issue is that I've lost one of the parameter knobs. Comes with box and PSU. SOLD
  2. Another one of the "now got a Helix" sales, my Source Audio Envelope Filter Pro + Hot Hand. It's in great condition and I've loved using this envelope. Sounds fab and the ability to program it is so useful. Comes boxed with a Hot Hand which apparently (according to the vendor) has a fault whereby it doesn't turn off so once on, it'll keep powered on until the charge runs out. As I didn't buy the pedal for the Hot Hand functionality, and have consequently never used it anyway, I've no idea whether or not it's faulty or not. £110 + postage from Solihull.
  3. Having recently gone down the Helix route, my TC Spectracomp is now surplus to requirements so is for sale. Great condition. £60 + postage from Solihull.
  4. Having recently gone down the Helix route, my MXR Bass Octave is now surplus to requirements so is for sale. Great condition. SOLD!!!!
  5. Having gone down the Helix route, I'm no longer using my EBS Microbass II so it's up for sale. In good condition, sounds fab and comes with the original box. Velco on the bottom but can remove before shipping. £150 + postage from Solihull.
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Blimey, why on earth didn't I look at the Bass Direct website?! Doh! BD is just a half hour down the M40 from me and I know Mark really well. Wish I'd realised they had them or I'd have popped down earlier. That'll be my treat for tomorrow morning.
  7. If you don't mind me asking, where did you order your 735A from @Al Krow? Online or shop brought? Really interested in one now but feel like I'd want to give it the once over in the flesh first. Being Midland's based, don't mind getting in the car for an hour or two if I can find somewhere with one in stock.
  8. @EBS_freak turned me onto this last night. For the money, it looks an amazing pedal. The only major downside for me is the lack of MIDI switching. I use my FI a huge amount for the weddings/functions band material as I switch it from the loop switcher via MIDI. Shame about the MIDI as the UI looks so much simpler on the Mono Synth and would have quite happily swapped out the FI for one of these other wise.
  9. Yeah, I've had my 64 Ears V8s for about 4 years now. Still absolutely fantastic, always bring a smile to my face when using them, especially when I finished paying off the crippling debt that @EBS_freak put me in when he convinced me to take the plunge!
  10. This. @EBS_freak is the absolute truth of all things IEM. Having used custom moulded 64 Ears V8s, I've also has a pair of zs10s for a while. Whilst they're fantastic value for money and sound great listening to music whilst at work, getting anywhere near the fit (and isolation) of custom moulds is a fair way away. As mentioned WAY too many times in this thread, it's a mind shift. I've not used an amp for dozens of dozens of gigs. We don't think twice of investing in hugely expensive back line. Maybe we need the same approach to IEMs. Spend big but spend once. Trust me, the absolute joy of a great in ear mix through some amazingly good custom moulds is a wonderful thing.
  11. So sorry buddy. Is it DEFINITELY lost? At this time of year, it wouldn't be a surprise to have the thing turn up late with all the deliveries that are going through the system. Has the courier confirmed they can't find it and it's disappeared?
  12. It's a plan B, just in case I do go wired with the bass. Are going through a bit of a declutter in general though. Have unloaded the Sony wireless and the EBS MicroBass from the pedalboard which I'll run on the next gig. No other pedals. Can power the MicroBass from the board using phantom power and the receiver will be in the funk trunk so there's no clutter out front. With this setup, I'll use the wireless for IEMs. However, if I choose not to use the Sony, I can then wire into the MicroBass (or the Orchid) and will then use the P2 for the IEMs. Nice to have some options.
  13. Ordered one and it arrived yesterday. Neat bit of kit, simple enough to use and switch to mono. Will drag the funk trunk out later and test it with the mixer against the IEMs.
  14. Is the P2 the mono version? Since I've sacked the pedalboard over the past couple of gigs and gone back to wired straight into the Orchid DI, maybe using one of these would be easier than the LD Systems IEM to cut down on the wireless kit we're running. Our keyboard player and drummer could benefit from them instead of their wireless and mixer respectively. Are they battery powered or can you phantom power them?
  15. Thank you, yours looks amazing too. Love the fact you've got all that funk in the trunk with the options for synths and envelopes! 😁 Great idea using the 1010. Had played with the idea of using a MIDI controller to patch change the Source Audio envelope, the M9 and the Future Impact but then came across the PXL Live switcher which did all I needed in terms of patch changing. Made such a difference, I've got a couple of banks full of Future Impact patches which has made life really easy. There looks to be a lot on the board but I don't think so really. For me, tend to stick to several "stock" patches for the funk/soul/r&b functions band which mainly involves synth'y/envelope'y stuff with some EQ's courtesy of the M9. There's loads of modulations I've programmed into the PXL live but I don't use them on this gig. Just take the view that they're there if I need them. lol Re the M9, it's a great sounding unit but TBH, I'd be all over the HX Effects if it was physically a little smaller. Space is so tight and I'm too lazy to recable it all to fit one on the board for nominal gain. The M9 is still a great unit and does all I need it to. Maybe at some point it'll give way to a HX Stomp when I can get my hands on one and see what it's like but I'd feel I was wasting a lot of the modelling functionality purely to use the effects. Dunno. Heard a lot of love for the SYB-5 with an expression pedal, by all accounts, they tend to come alive once they've got one of those attached.
