  1. Hello there, I have a One Spot CS7 which is 50mm deep. Would this fit underneath? Thanks.
  2. Interesting! The Le Bass outputs a max of 11dBu. The 1202's sensitivity spec says 1.0v(+2.2dBu) at 8 ohms so I'm guessing the Le Bass is more than capable of driving it. It certainly has h*ft.
  3. [quote name='markstuk' timestamp='1489589673' post='3258209'] Also different power amps have different input sensitivities.. QSC's are known to need a high signal level to drive them - from what I remember 1.5v at unity and there is a mod to make this .775 v [/quote] I have a QSC PLX1202 bought from Owen. It has a sensitivity of 1.0v and 0.9v at 8 & 4 ohms respectively. I'm currently experimenting using it with my Two Notes Le Bass. So far it seems to work well.

    obbm's feedback

    Just received an excellent neutrik speaker cable for a bridged amp and a couple of classy patch cables. Nice job! Thanks Dave.

  6. Please post here with feedback. Thanks, Mark.
  7. Thanks for the forum info. And here goes a short potted history: After many years playing in originals bands and cover bands with varying degrees of success (mostly none) I ended up doing a run in a West End theatre in a production of Peter Pan – the Musical. This then went on a tour round the UK – great fun. I did a couple of tours in Europe with US blues singer/guitarists (Jay Owens and Sherman Robertson). They like their blues ‘American’ in Europe! I also worked in Brian Conley’s backing band on the North Pier in Blackpool. Then I auditioned for and joined a band called Subcircus. We spent six months rehearsing and writing in a small rehearsal room in Kings Cross then got signed after being schmoozed and doing showcases in the UK and US. We recorded in Real World, Metropolis, Air and a few other studios in London (most now gone) and made two albums We had a single of the week in Melody Maker as voted for by Noddy Holder, toured the UK and US and did all the festivals. (Six weeks touring the States in one of those sleeper buses is not something you forget). But it failed to ‘break’ and we split after five years. I then did some session work for The Alice Band, Kelly Osbourne and a few others who I forget. Bit more touring (a week in Cuba was a stand-out) and some TV but not enough to keep me going. So, I entered the world of paid employment and left music behind for many years. But, my interest in music and bass playing has been rekindled. This site has certainly helped with that, although it has also encouraged some spending! PS I’m really happy with the advent of lightweight gear – anyone want a Peavey 410tx, going cheap?! Mark (aka George).
  8. Hello all, Well what a revelation! I’ve learned more in a few months on this site (and Talkbass) than I did as a professional bass player for 10 years in the 90s. It seems bass equipment has improved and we are spoilt for choice. (I've [i]already[/i] bought a few new bits of gear from Basschat members). There’s a great deal of knowledge on this site – thanks to all of you who take the time to impart it, even if the discussions sometimes get a little heated. One question: How do I add a ‘feedback’ link to my profile? Many thanks, Mark.
  9. Good to know you've had no issues with the DI out. How are you routing it for your stage sound? I like the sim. It is dark but sounds good through flat response headphones/Barefaced BB2 cab - and I'm using flats right now.
  10. [quote name='JimBobTTD' timestamp='1483008224' post='3204030'] All likely possible, but not with the desk/tech at the time. The tech there had a Boss DI that he preferred. Bass > LeBass > that DI > Desk [/quote] Did you use the line out to the DI and split from the tech's DI to your amp? I really want to use this as a floor pre/DI then into powered cab or a provided rig's power amp in.
  11. Oops! User error there... Could you not pad the signal at the desk? How do you get around the issue? Ta.
  12. [quote name='JimBobTTD' timestamp='1483005189' post='3203993'] I found the DI extremely hot...too hot to use at the gigs for which I purchased the LeBass! [/quote]
  13. This is a nice sounding unit with an excellent clean sound plus some really useable grit, but does anyone else wish there was a master volume? As it is you have to adjust the gain on the two channels when increasing stage volume. This also affects the DI level too: Has anyone had feedback from a sound engineer on the DI quality and level of output?
  14. Is the jazz modified? Bridge looks different. Also, does it have the lacquer finish? Do you know the weight? Thanks!
