    Items wanted bump?

    I was thinking the same thing

    Basses with 2x P-Bass pickups as stock..?

    FGN Power Bass has two P pickups https://fgnguitars.com/collection/eb/JMP-AL-R.php
  3. Yep, quite frightening really when you hear how loud it is already with the master barely above 1. It is quite a heavy cab though which doesn't bother me as it's going to stay parked where it is but I wouldn't relish moving it about.
  4. I managed to get a new Peavey 210TVX for a good price (must be last one in the country surely?) to replace the vanderkley. Only had it since yesterday but It sounds nice and clear - and very loud - so it looks like the vanderkley might be for sale. Not a bad rig for just over £400 all in.
  5. I've grounded the poles on my basses. As long as the bottom of the poles are exposed you just need to run a bit of copper foil across them and then solder a wire to the foil that then connects to one of pots. Works a treat.

    Google ads on iPhone?!

    Just started seeing these ads appearing in safari on a mac. They're sat over posts completely obscuring the text

    Kytary? Anyone used them?

    I came across them this week while I was searching an ampeg cab - their price was about £200 lower than anyone else which made me suspicious but they seem legit from what I can tell. Not ordered from them yet though.

    Examples of great P tone.

    lovely tone on this, I assume this is a precision through an SVT and 8x10 but don't know for sure
  9. no, needs to be 4 ohms, but thanks
  10. Yes, the 'slightly knackered but perfectly serviceable' ashdown option is looking favourable at the moment. There's a few available within driving distance for not much money
  11. That is an option but my current cab is a Vanderkley and I'd want them to match so that's an outlay of around £550. I'm also a bit worried about how loud 2 x12 cabs would be in the house - it's on the verge on being too loud with one. I may just get a cheaper 1x12 and try to ignore the mis-match but I know my OCD would win eventually.
  12. Mine was a 'B Stock' item so it's probably been returned under warranty for some reason and they've fixed the issue (hopefully) and re-sold it a knock-down price.
  13. The concensus amongst chaps over on the US forum is that the SVT can be run at 8 ohms but really shouldn't. This amp is basically a copy of the SVT so I'm applying that advice. I'll look around for a cheap 4 ohm cab to pair with it but it's far too tempting to play through it at the moment - it sounds ace!
  14. I couldn't resist buying a Bugera BVV3000 last week when one popped on reverb for £240 delivered. It's totally impractical for what I need (home use mainly) but I love the Ampeg sound so I thought it was worth a go at that price. For not much more than the price of a good pedal to emulate the tone I've got (almost) the real thing. It arrived today and I've just given it a quick blast - first impressions are that it sounds great and is very loud but can be tamed just enough for home practice without killing the tone. It also weighs a tonne so I can't move it more than a couple of feet without needing a rest. Only problem is that it works with a 4 ohm max load and I've only got an 8 ohm cab so I might have to use it very sparingly before I can source a more suitable cab. I'm slighter worried about how much louder a 2x10 or a 4x10 might be than be than my current 1x12 as they seem to be my only real options in 4 ohm. Anyway, minor details - I'm quite pleased with it.
