  1. Useful and informative. Thanks!
  2. The Diamond Bass compressor. So simple and natural sounding it sprinkles fairy dust on your sound and has a surprisingly useful eq tilt nob with switchable frequency centre.
  3. Time to reactivate this thread... Great live version too.
  4. That's a great sound and inventive, proficient playing. Thanks!
  5. I just love watching that guy on the vids. Tim? What's his story?
  6. An 'always on' compressor for me. It adds a professional sheen to my sound. Good luck with your sale.
  7. I saw them at the Brixton whatever-it's-called-now a couple of years ago and the sound wasn't that good. Ronnie's will be an altogether different proposition. I so much prefer smaller gigs, for the sound and the atmosphere. And you can see the sweat! Large stadium gigs leave me cold. So do pyrotechnics and such shenanigans.
  8. Monday early show for me! Anyone else? Great venue to see such a world class band. Can't wait...
  9. No 5 for me. More harmonics & 'life'.
  10. You want 'heft'? Look no further! Massive effortless power. Bought a few years ago from this very parish and barely used. Giggled and rehearsed with a Barefaced BB2 and the amp was on tick-over. Bridged, it delivers a real 700w into an 8 ohm cab. Comes with an embarrassingly pristine flight case made to fit the QSC by Swan. Does what it should. I'm not gigging now and have bought a small powered speaker for home. An bomb-proof OBBM speaker cable (for bridged used) is included. Pick up preferred. It's not really that heavy! I've cheekily lifted the description below from Amaz*n. Description Takes over the room but not your rack. At only 2 rack spaces, 13" deep, and 21 lbs., the QSC PLX1202 audio amp cranks out up to 1,200 watts (bridge mono mode @ 4 ohms) of crystal-clean power without generating a lot of heat in your rack. The PLX1202 features PowerWave technology for bigger bass, cleaner highs, and greater reliability; and Advanced Thermal Management for lower temps with variable-speed fan and precision-fitted heat shroud. Stereo: 200W @ 8 ohms, 325W @ 4 ohms, 600W @ 2 ohms. Mono bridged: 400W @ 16 ohms, 700W @ 8 ohms, 1,200W @ 4 ohms. Less than .01% distortion. Features & details Stereo: 200W @ 8 ohms 325W @ 4 ohms 600W @ 2 ohms Mono bridged: 400W @ 16 ohms 700W @ 8 ohms 1,200W @ 4 ohms At only 2 rack spaces, 13" deep, and 21 lbs , the QSC PLX1202 audio amp cranks out up to 1,200 watts (bridge mono mode @ 4 ohms) of crystal-clean power without generating a lot of heat in your rack The PLX1202 features PowerWave technology for bigger bass, cleaner highs, and greater reliability; and Advanced Thermal Management for lower temps with variable-speed fan and precision-fitted heat shroud Stereo: 200W @ 8 ohms, 325W @ 4 ohms, 600W @ 2 ohms Product information Product Dimensions 24 x 18.3 x 6 inches Item Weight 26.3 pounds
  11. Haha! I'll have look sometime. There are only two 'Jaffas' on the Shuker website gallery so I guess I have your old bass.
  12. My BB2 gen 3: Tremendous cab, powerful & light. I'm not gigging at the moment and using a powered cab at home. Bought a couple of years ago from this esteemed parish and used occasionally. There's loads of information on the web about this cab & Barefaced has plenty here too: https://barefacedbass.com/product-range/Big-Baby-2.htm No dings, handle is secure, feet are solid. Padded cover by Hotcovers included. Collection from South London SE24. Sale only, no trades! LP
  13. For sale is my Olympic White P bass. It's seen action on several continents and has a few battle scars to prove it. It has started to fade to a nice vintage cream. Truss rod is smooth, everything works as it should. I bought it new with a white scratch plate and also an additional tort plate at the same time. Currently wearing the white. Frets are good, Schaller strap lock buttons installed. Shod with La Bella flats & will include unused DR Hi Beams too. Soundwise it does the P bass thing. Has a fairly chunky neck. A good working bass! No hard case but can include a soft case. Sale only, no trades, pick up only. May be able to meet up in central London for exchange of bass/cash/bank transfer! Weight is 4.2kg or 9lb 5oz in old money. £850.
  14. Prefer the second bass. However it's so close as to be immaterial certainly for live and probably also recording. Go through some plug-ins, nice valve compressors and eq and either bass will sound fab and different again. And that's before mixing eq, mastering eq/compression.
  15. I have a twin to this. Same colour, neck and body but standard headstock, Delanos and a J East pre. I call mine the Jaffa!
  16. Am I right in that you bought the Shuker p bass body that was on sale here a while ago and added a new neck to make a complete bass? The body looks the same as the one that was for sale - plastic film on the scratch plate?
  17. Really enjoyed that, thanks. They all have unique characters. The Thunderbird was a pleasant surprise.
