  1. Most musicians probably... But hearing the difference between two notes one after the other is not the same as detecting a difference in an interval or detecting one instrument out of tune with another. It's rather like comparing colour swatches, you can discriminate small differences between two adjacent colours, but not if they are separated by any distance.
  2. I wouldn't get too flustered, for perfect fourths the error between just and equal temperaments is only two cents for each instance, so if your A is tuned to a tuning fork, both E strings and the D are two cents out, the G and B are four cents out, which is probably better than most guitarists can achieve by ear or fretting notes on adjacent strings.
  3. I prefer to scrape the bottom of the slots with a scalpel, although I use files when making a bone nut from scratch recently (to replace a cracked one).

  5. No the font can't change one character to another, it's just a repository of what each character looks like AND information on what characters are available. It will have a 'multiply' symbol available and programs able to detect when one has been used will therefore use the substitution if allowed. Word uses \times rather than detecting numbers either side of an 'x', here's where you tune them:
  6. The basic Class D power stage works down to DC - the input comparator will just generate a PWM signal to output a DC level proportionate to the input signal. This means the frequency response needs to be designed in. It can be a simple RC filter or a complex one https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/projects/how-to-build-a-class-d-power-amplifier/
  7. I am still using the one I made. I'm not convinced there's any great value shifting the frequency up above 30Hz, unless you are using a speaker that can't handle frequencies above that. The potentially damaging transients are sub-sonic. Seems to work best after compressor but before octaver. Gives me the confidence to use a fair amount of sub-octave without worrying an open-E will destroy something! Also didn't seem to harm a 5-string with low B at concert volumes.
  8. No problem. Electrically, you can use any pair of 8 ohm cabs with the Elf.
  9. I am not a very good singer, but when I had lessons I was praised for my ability not to drift in pitch. I haven't got perfect pitch though. Would a solution be giving them a quiet but audible pedal note?
  10. I've just ordered a 'new' Embassy. It has a 'claw' tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge which seems pretty bulletproof to me. Did the old version have the three-point bridge?
  11. I imagine that PJB C2 I've ordered goes down the same route. What is good is these small cabs do have decent power handling, so you can use a modest class D amp and have a teensy rig that covers home practice and small (say without drums) gigs.
  12. The T-Shirt details should go on all the other Bass Bash threads as well.
  13. May I be so bold as to paste the link? https://bigfatswbassbash.weebly.com/photos-2021.html
  14. Fan should be on all the time and audible, at least on the current batch.
  15. Mogadon cut with largactil.
  16. In that case, assuming it really is a 105, then 110 strings will cure the problem and let you use standard tuning. 110 strings have just under 10% more mass per unit length, which is about a whole tone so change to them will mean you can keep the same tension.
  17. A few cents is not much. "According to Ellis, when two notes are played together, a difference of 2 cents is noticeable, and a difference of 5 cents is heard as out of tune." It could well be cheap strings, but it might not be. Have you checked the intonation? I check after every change of strings. The 12th fret harmonic and fretted note at 12th fret should all be in tune. If it's still noticeably out of tune near the nut, then the nut probably is a bit high and needs careful re-cutting. Virtually no instrument will be spot on for every fret, everywhere.
  18. Lol. Look like a pair of dodgy geezers down the pub then...
  19. I was impressed by our singer/guitarist. He's early 20s but very confident and did a great job with the crowd, even got them clapping and singing along. He understands that the best way to convince a crowd the band is really good is to tell them they are!
