  2. Cheers Dan that's very helpful. Are the j-Tones any good? They are very cheap and there is one that looks very like a bass max.
  3. Hi My trusty K&K Bassmax pick up has developed an annoying crackle. I've had it for years and it's on my backup bass. Wondering if anyone ever experienced a similar issue and any possible solutions or should I just bite the bullet and get a new one!
  4. That looks great! I was thinking of something similar but with thick wooden dowels.
  5. Has anyone had a go at making a double bass stand? I’m thinking of something similar to the Upton bass stand below, or the other attached. There is also one Concord Double bass stand here which looks like it would work http://www.kontrabass-atelier.de/zubehoer_e.html The problem being I am pretty hopeless at DIY but I do have access to a CNC Milling Machine at work and am about to book on to some training. I think you just create you designs in Illustrator or something and upload it via a web interface and it does all the work but I’ll find out. The Concord stand is CNC milled MDF. I think I would need to source the bars in the appropriate size and shape in wood or metal and then mill the sides which would create the shape and holes for the bars. The machine I have access to is not huge so potentially it might not be able to handle the size but people have made chopping boards etc and the bass is an odd size just bigger than 1/4 size, so I’ll see. Be great if anyone had plans so I didnt need to do any work tho!
  6. Traded a cab for Gerry’s Mustang. Absolute pleasure to deal with and made me appreciate how nice it is to meet other bass players and have a chat, great bloke.
  7. I know it been late replying, after a couple of months and all seems fine. In fact the vast sounds great. It might have been my completely stinky poo restringing!
  8. Cheers own it's the original one so super small!
  9. Hi Bridgehouse thanks for the reply I'll try the Helix FX return.
  10. Thanks for the reply. Yeah I thought the input impedance, I have an fdeck I’m going to try with it. I’m using a bassmax but just about to switch to a Realist.
  11. Has anyone used a Helix with their upright bass? Just for ease I’d rather just use one input and one channel in the desk but maybe I just need to have a separate DB setup. I bought Sigma Studio upright IRs but to me the sound is thin, wondered anyone had any advice.
  12. Thanks for the info I’m going to take some time and investigate.
  13. Just changed my strings and have a terrible open G string buzz. Seems to be coming from the body, soundpost looks in place. The strings are lighter than the previous set and when I lay it on it’s back no buzz. Any ideas!
