  1. Hi My T-Rex pedal has a faulty switch and after emailing T-Rex twice I’ve had no reply. It’s a twin channel and you select the left or right channel and they are either on or off or if one is selected the other one takes over if you select it. The question is what switch do I need to buy to replace the faulty one. Please see the attached pics. Thanks in advance. Mike 👍
  2. Hi I am making a lead for my Samson Concert 66 wireless system and need help with the connections Obviously using a mono connection from my guitar ....how do I connect that to the mini XLR (wire colours ect) Thanks Mike
  3. Having had a drop out problems and having spent a little bit of time researching possible causes, here is my good advice for Line 6 G30 use to help prevent drop outs · Turn the transmitter off: Check the individual LED’s channels on the receiver. The more red bars that show on any channel, then avoid that channel. The less red bars the better the channel reception is · Use the designated independent power for the receiver. It’s power hungry and your board pedal may be at its top end if you are running a small number of pedals · RF1 is less affected with Wi-Fi (Search changing it on YouTube, its dead easy to do) · Use a rubber band on the battery door. This ensures that the door is shut tight on the batteries · Turn off your phones Wi-Fi or run in Aircraft mode for the show
  4. All fitted and it sounds real good. I have the treble set around the indent and it sounds great in the mix. The bass is awesome with a lot of flexibility.... I'm more than happy
  5. Hi everyone I purchased one of these yesterday at a very attractive price of £90 new unused (£260 currently) .....The question is does anyone have any experience of Samson wireless systems and are they any good? I didn't have the time to ask yesterday so I guess the horse has bolted but feedback would be great. The guy had 3 bought for a band that didn't happen..... Cheers Mike
  6. Morning everyone. I'm about to fit a Retrovibe Stinger 77 to my Sterling Ray34. The 77 has red and black wiring for the pickup and on the Ray34 it's black and white You know where this is going
  7. No I used it’s last night for the first time and it sounded great but I was wondering if there was a different sound with the retro vibe. The treble took some taming last night but I guess I’ll figure the active sound out fairly quickly 👍
  8. Hi all Does anyone have any experience of these circuits. I have a Sterling Ray35ca and I’m wondering if it’s worth popping one of these in Thanks in advance Mike

  11. Early Mesa Fathom bass amplifier, same model later rebadged as the M6 Carbine. Tube preamp combined with a solid-state MOSFET power amp. Pushes 600 watts at either 4 or 2 ohms, 320 watts at 8 ohms, and is very loud, punchy and flexible. Has very flexible tone controls, and if used with a five way footswitch (not included), it is capable of switching between five different preset tone profiles and running a tuner & mute. This sale is for the Mesa head only and does NOT include anything else in the pictures. It’s in great condition and is an amazing amp. Please get in touch if you have any questions. I’m in Bolton and it’s collection only I’m afraid. Cheers Mike.... ps. I have an ABS 3U case available separately if your interested 👍
  12. £181 now which is fantastic value!
  13. Thanks for this great advice 👍
  14. Hi everyone I'm just after a little help with reducing the output volume on my Mesa M6 Fathom/Carbine head I've recently bought it and used it last night with a Mesa Powerhouse 8 ohm 2x10 and a Precision bass in a large pub. It sounds fantastic but it's stupidly loud with gain on half and the volume on circa 1!!!! Is there any advice to reduce the input maybe and would using the active circuit with my passive bass be detrimental to my sound in any way? Or do I lift the output and just lower the gain.... Thanks Mike
  15. It's taught me a lesson for sure
  16. Hi Ped It was on the 15th August was the day I agreed to buy it. It was all done via email so I don't have a telephone number...... Thanks Mike
  17. Hi everyone Just a heads up with regards to a recent scam that I have sadly experienced on Basschat. I put up a wanted request for a Mesa Boogie M6 and was offered one by a chap called Victor or (Gearlumth) This chap contacted me and supplied a picture and detailed a description, we agreed a price for and I payed via PayPal. When I received notification of payment the icon had chinese writing on it which seemed odd. 3-4 days later after chasing I was told that the amp would be shipped and that it would take 5-6 days to arrive. Later that week I re contacted him to check it was being shipped and received an e-mail stating that he was angry with me and what was the rush. He also stated that it was Salah and that I should have known that. I responded in an appropriate manner as you can imagine. Several days later he said it would be shipped and that 3 days after I would receive shipping info. When he confirmed it had been shipped I requested the info stating that this is supplied either when its posted at the Post Office or booked with a courier. I contacted PayPal and raised my concerns. They agreed it was suspect and asked that wait 10 days to see if the item arrived. I was then contacted by a chinese lady who thanks me for my patience and gave me a tracking number. This was 2.6kg and was travelling from China to Nigeria and was clearly a scam at this stage. They had sent PayPal a fictitious screen shot that said I had requested to send the amp to Nigeria! This had then been signed for and the excuses that I had received were clearly delaying tactics to have a signed delivery confirmation that would allow payment to be completed. This has taken several weeks to resolve but fortunately I have received all of my money back, but please be aware of this thief and his activity as I had another add up for a wanted Mesa cab which he then also offered me during this nonsense. This is clearly a great site with dedicated and honest people on board but sadly some people are out to rob and scam us so beware Contact info used by the scammers: Victor Gear Lumth [email protected] [email protected] All the best Mike
