  1. The Harley Benton kits on Thomann are good, and cheap... Harley Benton Solder-Free DC Patch Cable Kit – Thomann UK Have to add 20% VAT now?
  2. I put a strap on an instrument and leave it on there. Only comes off for major maintenance etc. So, every guitar gets a strap. This is the way.
  3. Presonus Eris 4.5 Presonus Eris E4.5 Near Field Active Studio Monitor (Pair) (dawsons.co.uk) £165.00 - they were a bit cheaper recently - hard to beat at the price
  4. My newest Pinegrove Leather strap arrived yesterday This will go on my Yamaha Revstar RS502 6 string due to arrive beginning of Feb.
  5. It's usually because the red stain has faded; it's the same with burst colours - red is the first to go.
  6. The D'Addario mini one https://www.daddario.com/products/accessories/tuners/micro-headstock-tuner/ sits nicely on the back of the headstock below the E tuner... easy to see for the player. It's a bit fussy about reading low E - needs a harmonic ping.
  7. Yes, run as dual mono or in bridge mode mono, if the amp does this.
  8. LOL. I also dispute the "Perfectly Balanced" bit...
  9. OK, so today I got down to some serious solstice string changing... Put new Rotosound RS66LD RWs on the Precision. Oooh that sounds nice again. Put LaBella 760FS flats on the PJ. Tuning up, first stretch and KaTwap! - ball end of the E ricochets around the room... So I now have a three string PJ. Can't seem to get a single LaBella anywhere... ? Well I'm certainly not stumping up for another set of these - they're not cheap. 😞 So just ordered D'Addario ECB81 XL Chromes on Amazon - say they'll deliver tomorrow, fingers crossed.
  10. If you're recording solo guitar and not guitar to for use in a mix, then try a live room/space with a high ceiling and a nice open ambience. Mix close mic and room mic to taste.
  11. JMJ or s/h MIJ all day long...
  12. Absolutely flippin' lovely! I have a 1988 and had a 1979 (bought new). Really great basses.
  13. Capo on first fret, press down 17th fret, measure neck relief on E and G sides at 7th fret with feeler guage . Set truss rods for 10 thou on G and 12 thou on E... ?? loosen both truss rods and check relief increases - therefore truss rods are working re-tighten truss rods to get the 10/12 thou relief - if there are still free turns on the truss rods (ideally enough to get some back-bow) then all is AOK.
