    New Squier Classic Vibes for pre-order at Thomann

    in the six string world (forgive me!) the word on the street is that the chinese made CV models are being continued with no changes. All the models which were previously branded "vintage modified" and made in indonesia, are getting tweaked and re-branded. Not saying this is true as anything could happen- but the availability of the current chinese made CV models may not be effected. Yet........ if anyone knows different I'm all ears. I too love the look of those black 70's cv precisions ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    looks like my P was 399 dollars in 1992 if i've read it correctly- glad i got it for less than new! (at todays exchange rate that is)

    Gretsch G2220 Junior Jet II

    I fell in love with the looks of one of these in my local PMT a couple of weekends ago- it was a beautiful olive green colour ๐Ÿ˜Ž nice to hear they play and sound as good as they look

    Cheap cabs alert

    Well folks, I scratched the itch and I'm now the proud owner of a "proper" bass amp. As per advice on here I ordered the 300 head with the 210 cab, and then a few days after putting that in I was in PMT and decided that the 1x15 sounded so much different that I had that too. Bear in mind I've never even had anything bigger than a 1x8 15w combo before- so I thought s0d it, whilst everything is on sale I'll get the lot and I can experiment and try different things! I can personify some of the conversations i've read on here The 300 is fine through the 210 at bedroom volumes- no matter what type of pickup is used, but through the 1x15 vibrates the room on anything more powerful than a j-bass pickup! I'm not so concerned about resale values- I bought this because I thought it was time I bought a jam-able amp, hopefully the head will see me right for many years and I'll be able to source a more portable cab should I ever need it, and the cabs can stay where they are. More importantly, I now understand the sound differences between a 210 and 115 cab for starters. Happy days, and thanks again to those who advised me early in the thread and all others who have contributed. Keep the thoughts coming, I'm interested to hear what more experienced players think of them. Cheers!

    ash's Feedback

    Recently bought a Bass Guitar off ash, superb smooth transaction- just like when I bought a bass off him 10 years ago- many many thanks! Great guy to deal with
  6. thanks all. very kind words- and very encouraging for me, appreciate it. Great for me to hear what you guys are learning- awesome thread! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7. There's threats there may be a jam on the horizon- so I've been given "everlong" to learn. Even though I've been an owner / noodler of bass for 15 years, I never really progressed- so this is a challenge! fingers aren't quite up to full speed so half noting the first bit at the mo. I doubt my learning at this level will inspire anyone on here!

    Bass 101 Question

    Mind blown. That's cool Good luck to the OP- i've owned and noodled on bass for many years and I'm sill a bit slack in my technique- so reading these threads with tips on helps me too enjoy the learning curve
  9. Nice looking bass ash. If you are willing to post it (Iโ€™m only an hour and a half away but short on time!) PM me a price, if thatโ€™s a pain in the neck and you wanna hold out for a collection sale itโ€™s all good ๐Ÿ‘

    Cheap cabs alert

    Ok thatโ€™s cool cheers for the response ๐Ÿ‘ I know what you mean about the volume knob but my guitar amps donโ€™t make any noise at all, then cut in at a certain decibel level, which on larger amps can be a bit much ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheap cabs alert

    that's practically what I thought when I saw these- i've not much experience with different amps, and I only have 2 because I play / live in two locations. They are both 15w combos with a 1x8 speaker. out of interest- would a 300w head and a 1x15 or 2x10 actually be able to be used at very low bedroom volumes? I have a 12w (valve) 2x10 guitar amp, and even that struggles to be quiet enough- but i suppose that could be different with solid state / bass applications?

    [quote name='Bassassin' timestamp='1485444114' post='3224018'] Don't know if anyone on here has. Someone on the FB group was talking about the pickups (didn't like the J unit) but hasn't - as far as I know - talked about its build & playability etc. [/quote] Thanks man, i'll take a look on the facebook group Prowla- that's awesome. very well done
