    New cab day/night

    Received my Barefaced Two 10 S on Wednesday, had a quick play at home which sounded great. Played a gig last night & it was a wonderful sound! Not my ideal sound but full & solid sounding. I will need to adjust the settings to get the best sound but I’m going to enjoy finding it! I'm using my Ashdown RM500 amp which has plenty on versatility so it should be a joyful journey.

    What wattage amp do you use with this cab and do you use it as a single cab?

    Ideas for 1979 YOB bass

    Blimey, 39 years ago, that’s when I picked up my first bass, a Jedson shortscale Tele style, closely followed by a Honda Precision with a neck like telegraph pole and an action you could limbo under! I then upscaled to an Aria SB600, what a difference!

    NAD - ashdown content!

    I bought an RM500 a couple of weeks ago and used it live last week for the first time. It sounded great, although I need to sort out a couple of tweaks of the settings to get the sound I really want. There's plenty of scope for variation. My only niggle's are that it has no headphone output, apparently they are adding that to the next model that comes out and the front panel is a bit too shiny and you can't make out the control labels. But I suppose that's just something to get used to. I play it through two Fender Rumble 1 x12's which have the magnets to hold the Rumble amp in position, these also grip the Rootmasters metal casing and there's no chance of the amp vibrating or getting pulled off! Overall I'm really pleased with it!

    GK MB500 Fusion Problem

    I suspect it is something to do with the valves. I’ve just playing through it & it sounds normal again! i did take the cover off the other day, and I decided I wasn’t going to risk taking the valves out, as you say, they are in a very restricted space. My local music shop does repairs, so I think I’ll just take in and let them sort it out. Thanks for your replies.

    GK MB500 Fusion Problem

    My GK MB500 Fusion has developed a problem. When it is switched on, the volume is low and the sound is scrunchy/crackly, this is the same on both the A and B channels and makes no difference if it is used with speakers or headphone only. I have tried using a 1/4" jack into the send & return sockets on the effects loop, with no change in sound. I was wondering if it is maybe the valves. Does anyone have any ideas? Also does anyone know a good amp repairer in the Harrogate/ Leeds/ York area? Thanks in advance.

    Seminal 'bass' albums

    You got me with the french quote Marc, I wouldn't even attempt to write that down but still an album I regularly listen to.

    Don't forget young Jan Palak, he burnt a torch against the Warsaw Pact!

    + three for Rattus. Also consider Euroman Cometh by JJ Burnel, fantastic grindy bass lines, guaranteed to rattle your speakers!
  12. Hi Scooby, i would be interested in this. Can I just ask if it is compatible with a 5th gen ipad? Cheers Andy Simm

    Jazz question

    I play a Jazz with a pick all the time and I also play close to the bridge and have never had a problem catching the bridge pick up.
