  1. Took the words right out of my mouth!
  2. Misdemeanours (UK) Misdemeanors (US)
  3. The lowest notes on a piano are full of overtones and harmonics. Take the lid off when you next have the chance and compare the lowest note with the octave up. The overtones are distinctly different. You'll notice almost no 'heft'. Someone will have a graph of individual note frequency responses!
  4. Is there an advantage (for bass guitar) in a larger voice coil in the HF driver, all other things being equal? I ask because RCF make great play of the advantages for vocal reproduction. A technical point I know...
  5. I was wondering about this as well. The more expensive offerings have larger voice coils on both woofer & compression driver. This seems to allow not only more power handling but also allows the compression driver to do more of the work : The crossover frequency is lower with the premium cabs so the HF driver covers more of the frequency spectrum Is this a big deal for bass guitar? @EBSfreak what say you Sir?

    East Pre-Amps

    Me too. The J East website says they are out of stock.
  7. I've now had my two prints framed and they look great. I'll post a pic of them in situ once I get them on the wall. A very nice job Grassie, thanks again.
  8. I've ordered both this and the gu**ar version. Should be a fine pair!
  9. HPF is 45hz: http://www.tech21nyc.com/support/manuals/effects/Qstrip_OM.pdf
  10. I'm considering either the QSC K12.2 or the RCF HD32-A. The QSC has presets enabling eq to be varied and a Hi-Z/line level input so a bass can be plugged in without a preamp. It also has a 3.5mm TRS for phone/mp3 etc. The RCF has a mic/line switch. I'm using a Le Bass preamp/di at the moment but wondering if my basses with built in preamps (MM & J East) would work straight into either of these units. Are they able to drive both the RCF and QSC without an external pre? If that would work maybe I could ditch the pre and use a high quality DI such as a passive JDI after my other pedals with the parallel out to the frfr...or nothing at all if the fancy takes me. I assume a passive bass would not work direct into the RCF? I realise I may have confused some basic impedance or level issues here!
  11. NX have coaxial speakers: The horn is mounted in the middle of the 12" driver so I guess that would add to the cost. http://www.rcf.it/en_US/products/pro-speaker-systems/nx-series/nx-12-sma
  12. I struggled with compressors until I tried and bought a Diamond. It is easy to dial in too much with some compressors. The Diamond works exactly as other posters in this thread have described, is pretty foolproof (difficult to get it wrong), has a nice 'sheen' & makes you and the band sound tight! Very subtle but it's a great help to the overall mix. http://www.ovnilab.com/
  13. @EBS_freak you truly are the voice of reason! Thanks for your posts.
  14. I use mine into a power amp so I do have a need for a clean channel A.
  15. @Al Krow it's easy to get a clean flat response from channel A: Bass in, bass/treble to zero, adjust gain until it distorts, back off a bit, then switch between unit off/channel A to adjust output vol to unity. Then fiddle with bass/treble until you have an (almost) identical sound when on unit off/channel A.
  16. Nope, Channel A does it for me. No mid scoup - just dial bass & treble all the way down and take it from there. A plus B in cold fusion is also really useable.
