    Music Man SUB

    Thanks everyone, I'm learning a lot about SUBs and Stingrays here! I've always loved the look of a Stingray but could never afford one. When I brought the SUB into the house my wife said it was horrible and it looked "contrived" I tried to convince her it's a design classic but she's not having it.

    P bass, and why I love it!!

    I spent years playing Jazz basses or Japanese things of one kind of another, and I've always shunned P basses. Then after I saved a lot of money from packing in smoking I went to buy a brand new Mexican Jazz...and left the shop with an American Precision...and have never looked back. I love my P Bass and would sleep with it if my wife would let me.

    Music Man SUB

    Cheers @jezzaboy I did a google search but there seems to be so many variations of the same thing...hence the confusion. Then again; I'm easily confused. I'll check out the for sale section as you suggest.

    Music Man SUB

    Hello folks, I'm after some advice as ever. This isn't a "For Sale" post, I just need something clarifying. My mate has asked me to sell his bass for him as he doesn't have an account on any of the selling sites. He told me he wanted £175 for his SUB bass, which I assumed was a Sterling. When I came to take the photos however it appears to be a Music Man, made in the USA. Is £175 way too low? See images of the bass below:

    SX or XS?

    Thoroughly enjoyed myself taking it all to bits and putting it back together...I enjoy that bit more than the money I get for them!!

    SX or XS?

    That's what I thought - the head shape is exactly the same, but why the different logo? I even contacted SX about it......but they ignored me 🙂 Thanks for the link @adamg67I'll keep an eye on that. I sold mine for only £64 on an eBay auction but still quite happy as I only paid £15 for it.

    We Don't Play There Anymore

    I once tried to go into the bar with my girlfriend, during the interval, to avoid the bingo. She was physically carried out by two blokes and I was told there was "no women allowed in the bar; only in the lounge and concert room." That was about 20 years ago but I wouldn't be surprised if some of them still have that rule.

    Only Buzz - No Sound

    I'm not sure what you mean by an ampjack either. Is it another amplifier or did you replace the jack socket on the Rumble?

    Lights......but no sound

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I really appreciate it and I'm working through them all slowly (it's too hot for messing around with amps indoors today) The latest finding is that if I plug an mp3 into the AUX input....it works! That means it isn't the speaker. Next thing to check is the suggestion from @Acebassmusic about the output settings. I wish I knew what I was doing.

    Lights......but no sound

    There isn't one. It's a modelling amp so all the effects are built in.

    Lights......but no sound

    There is a hum when everything is turned up full @Bigwan Not very loud but definitely there.

    Lights......but no sound

    Cheers, Grangur, I've got plenty of that so will give it a shot later on.
  13. Hello folks, hope everybody's recovered from the world cup disappointment. At least England's defeat has stopped the nocturnal painting of St George's Crosses on roundabouts, bus stops, animals and public conveniences up here. Anyway, to business! I've just been given a Vox VT20+ "Valvetronix" combo which isn't working properly. It turns on but if you plug a guitar in and turn the volume up there is no sound at all. A few things to note If you turn on the built-in tuner and play a string then the tuner works, so a signal is getting into it from the jack socket Connections to the speaker seem to be sound There's no sound via the headphone socket either It's a valve/solid state/digital hybrid type of thing. Anybody have any ideas about what the problem is? I remember in the olden days I used to have to replace output fuses on amps quite frequently. If one of these had blown then the amp turned on but no sound came out. Do amps still have these?
  14. Great idea @kodiakblair. How do you manage to get in on so smoothly? I thought air bubbles would be a problem?
  15. That looks great @bartelbyIs it satin finish?
