    I've got the M900 v2 and Mr Fretmeister is correct, the cab sims only output to headphone and DI. I did try with cabs too, just to make sure!

    Well I feel the muppet now, you and mr fretmeister were of course quite right and I had been thinking "mmm that's subtle, but I'm sure there's a difference". I did take the DI out to another amp and onto my BF cabs, it did sound really good on one or two IR's, I guess because the cabs are so flat frequency response. Oh well One less button to worry about!  Thx guys

    The cab sims on the Darkglass head only work on the DI and Headphone outs.

    Not on the speaker outputs.

    That's thrown me, I could have sworn i could hear the difference. The power of auto suggestion, I shall report back after further investigation! 

  3. for gigs I use a bf super compact with a bf midget. Really easy to carry individually and they stack well. I can fill a small hall with a gk mb200, at a push. Gk mb500 fusion is more than enough for any gig I've done. The midget on its own keeps up with a loud drum kit so fine for rehearsals and really easy to carry. 

    The only drawback gigging I've found is I can mess with the eq for quite some time until I get a nice fenderesque thump. I've just got a darkglass head with cab sim built in, you can turn it off if you want clean,  it seems to go well with the bf cabs but no gigs yet, so only tried it in my living room so far. 

    Having read the thread I really don't rate trying cabs/amps out in shops. They never sound the same when there's no band. I buy second hand, and if I don't get on with it sell it on. I might loose a bit of cash, but nothing like as much as buying new, and it's a lot less nerve racking. 

    Oh, the other thing about bf cabs is they do need breaking in, they sound much better after a few hours of hard playing. I don't know if that's true for all cabs. Good luck!

  4. I've just bought a lovely Darkglass Amp from Jonny in really good condition, the amp that is, dont know about Jon. He was very flexible and accommodating over my delivery preferences .  A really nice guy and easy purchase. Many thanks

    So far, i'm the only one using Xvives. No trouble with actives, though i now use passives, and no latency.

    I use xvives too. Great sound and convenience but not good on any active basses I've got and it knocks out the house wifi, not so serious but it also knocks out the bands behringer digital mixer, do I don't use it live. 

  7. Just bought a Mike Lull from Jeff. He traveled two and a half hours to meet me, met me from the station, bought me a gluten free lunch, let me noodle till I was happy to part with the dosh. What a lovely knowledge man. Thank you Jeff! 

  8. I play a passive PJ, admittedly 90% P but when the band plays an instrumental I'll often switch to the J to cut through more, then back to the thumpy P to keep out of the way of the vocals. Could do the same with the tone control, or amp EQ but I can leave everything set up as it was this way.

  9. Thanks Nick for a very straightforward Tonestyler purchase and great packing, which looking back through your feedback you are famous for! 

    Many thanks and best wishes
