    Zoom B1 Four

    I've had one for a couple of weeks now - I think it's great. You can't go wrong for the money
  2. my CTM 30 is a bit baffling in that regard. I spoke to Dave Green (the amp's designer) when I first got it and he advised that 12 noon on all the dials was pretty much flat so that's how I ran it for a while but always felt it was very bright. Eventually I did a bit of knob twiddling and found much more pleasing tones with some very wierd settings. The eq knobs all seem to affect each other to quite a large degree so I can only suggest playing about with it and not being afraid to try settings that might seem 'wrong'
  3. Love this colour - I built my own cheapo version of this bass last year and had a go at a light relic finish (mainly because my spray job wasn't perfect)
  4. yes, there is copper strip bridge earth. I haven't taken the pickup out yet to check thats it's connected properly but the eveidence suggests that it is
  5. Yes, I expected to see a ground wire connecting all the pots to the jack which is why I was a bit confused. It only occurred to me that the control plate might be in the circuit while I was typing up the the original post
  6. by metal plate you mean the chrome control plate presumably, not the copper plate?
  7. This is a photo of the control plate from 91 MIJ squier jazz that I bought this week. I'm puzzled about why there is no ground wire connecting to the jack. The copper plate that I pulled out sits in the bass of the control cavity and has three black wires soldered to it, 1 from the front pickup cavity and 2 from the back pickup cavity (I assume these are from ground shields in the pickup cavities/bridge but haven't looked yet). Two further black wires, one from each pickup cavity are connected to the back of the first pot and a wire then connects the pot to the copper shield. None of this, however, is connected to the jack ground unless it's somehow going through the control plate itself. Weird, anyone know what's going on? The bass isn't particularly noisy so it appears to be working somehow. There's very little hum and what there is reduces when the strings are being touched. Touching the poles of the bridge pickup introduces a bit of noise but not much wheres the front poles are really bad so they are obviously not grounded.
  8. It cuts out a specific frequency. The screenshot below shows a notch filter being used to cut most of the bass guitar from an mp3 file but in the case of a DI for live use it would, I assme, be used to tame a troublesome resonant frequency in the room

    obbm's feedback

    Easy transaction with Dave for some pickups, no problems at all and would happily buy from him again.
  10. FGN Power Bass has two P pickups https://fgnguitars.com/collection/eb/JMP-AL-R.php
