  1. Out of interest, have the C4 owners here managed to snap up the first batch? They don't seem to be in stock anywhere online.
  2. Great wee amps these, ideal for folks running with amp modelling and needing an amp with a decent EQ. Good luck!
  3. Great cabs; I only moved mine on as a 1x12 is sufficient for me for live purposes. Not too heavy either.
  4. Just received a bass from Mike: great instrument, exactly as described, well packed and he communicated at every stage to ensure it arrived safely. Another smooth BC sale, thanks Mike, Al
  5. Resistance is sometimes higher in the bridge pup to account for lower string vibration being closer to a fixed point (the bridge).
  6. Got these for 21 quid a while back - the big one can fit in the HX Stomp plus cabling etc. I use the small one for guitar tools, really useful. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Accessories-Electronics-Organiser-Chargers-Powerbank-Black/dp/B014QV4POK/ref=pd_sbs_421_1/259-6684782-8513845?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B014QV4POK&pd_rd_r=d0dff9ab-a21f-4db8-ac4e-82938b29dce3&pd_rd_w=MWb9e&pd_rd_wg=pymRq&pf_rd_p=7f9048ad-9bda-4493-8578-13e4eff8da65&pf_rd_r=4K7AK14JGY9ZG13VH2HH&psc=1&refRID=4K7AK14JGY9ZG13VH2HH
  7. I'm talking about the Straight Ahead amp, not the GSS. Makes sense to look at US power amps if the OP lives there.
  8. Straight Ahead power amp. The guy who makes them is based in New York. Small, powerful and transparent, plus very reasonably priced if you're in the US.
  9. following with interest. after seeing this I'm keen to get a custom build done with the Degenerates
  10. That Ashdown looks pretty neat I must say. I'd consider the new EBS Valvedrive also - I think someone on BC has one actually. Ref the Shift Line: I had one briefly and sent it back. Really wasn't impressed with it. Everyone has their own needs, of course, but I didn't find it versatile at all.
  11. There are a few mentions of the older version online it seems, but this is the newer model. Very happy!
  12. Greetings all! In quest to find a lightweight, public transport-friendly amp for rehearsals and small gigs, I took a chance on sourcing one of these from the US. Spec as below (with measurements obviously put into metric): 12.7 x 17.8cm 0.7kg 500 watts @ 4 ohms, 300 watts @ 8 ohms. THD less than .1%. Full array of protections built in against shorted output, over temperature, DC fault (for speaker protection), over/under supply voltage etc. Tonally transparent with no unwanted coloration. Not sure how much depth one can go into for such things, not being a power amp aficionado, but this really does do what you need it do. Very quiet (aside from some fan noise discernible up close) and bloody loud. The fact that it's tiny and light is a big bonus too. Photos above my amp give an idea of scale; If my hefty valve amp had feelings, it'd be a wee bit anxious about its place in the pecking order right now.... I bought this after enquiring on Jay's Facebook page; even after postage and customs this came in at around £265. There may be other similar products for less money but lower power (TC Electronics) or bigger, more powerful items (GSS Baby Sumo) but this really does do the job for something you can have in a studio or slipped into your gig bag. Please do send a message if you'd like to know more. https://www.facebook.com/straightaheadamp/
