  1. A decent all in one with DI, preamp, drive, EQ (bonus points for switchable) etc makes sense if you want a bass amp flavour and if in future you go bigger with speakers just get an active speaker or a neutral voiced speaker (eg Barefaced Compact) and a little class D power amp. Loads to choose from: I’d look for a second hand GK Plex personally coz I love GK sounds! I would guess there’d be some way to jack into the power stage of the GK at church and the keyboard amp and thus bypass the inbuilt pres…. then you’d have your pre sound for both situations, plus a DI with your sound (or clean assuming the preamp pedal supports that sort of routing). That said: most bass cabs are part of the flavour to some extent. I use Barefaced so they’re pretty tone neutral.
  2. I’d say that’s right, sadly!
  3. Ticks a LOT of boxes for sure. Not cheap would be my guess!!
  4. Nice! No need for such a thing but that’s an excellent example of it’s type for sure… be interesting to see what can be accessed via MIDI!
  5. I’m sorry to derail this FS thread with bass lust but dayyyyuuuumm. I’ve never been able to shake the feeling that a souped up slab body tele style 5 string in a funky colour was in my future and this has just confirmed it! The green (is it green?!) fella on the left is lovely!!
  6. Ah man. Bad timing, but always the way with these things. I ripped my pedalboard apart during a break when it happened to me. Still happened!
  7. Ah ok. I’ll vote battery as well then - as anyone who’s owned a ‘Ray will attest not all batteries are *exactly* the same size, I had bad contacts on mine (it’s a Ray thing sometimes it seems!) - maybe similar here? Intermittent faults suck.
  8. Possibly a daft suggestion but: if the pole pieces are exposed it’s not the string contacting the magnet is it? After years of Bart humbuckers my first exposed pole pieces bucker caused that. Well, my [email protected] technique caused it, really…
  9. Is this still here? As the original owner I can attest to this being ace!! Have a bump!
  10. Have a read of https://forum.morningstar.io/t/uses-ideas-value-scroll-counters/1596/2 there’s a post from me in there with exactly how to do that!
  11. The interference is usual when USB’d to a pc with peripherals hanging off it. If you’re on a laptop, unplugging any monitor connections normally makes it go away. I connect my MC and C4 concurrently with their own usb cables direct to the laptop - usb hubs can cause issues with comms. Suggest heading to the Morningstar forums if you haven’t already!
  12. An afternoon bash with the new covers band cancelled - singer in hospital! A speedy recovery is hoped for, we were just starting to get into gear!! 😒
  13. No-one better to deal with folks…. I’m sure this will be minty and lovely! GLTWS!
  14. Oh my life what a bargain. That’s a total no brainer folks.
  15. I love the SA stuff, have three pedals including the C4. Hub defo worthwhile long term but I begrudged the extra spend when I only had the C4! The nice thing about C4 and hub is you can choose to use hub for scene storage and send PC to recall presets or you can send CC to recall directly from the C4 (which is what I do)
  16. https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Source-Audio-Neuro-Hub-Effects-Controller/1KKV?origin=product-ads&gclid=CjwKCAjw3cSSBhBGEiwAVII0ZyhM6HIrXg9jk0pdLh3S0J5JetFRTWLQT6pR_Qh2qPHJ8eIY2RFPahoC_w4QAvD_BwE or if you’re ONLY going to connect a C4 from the source audio range, a DMC MIDI ghost box would do… there was one for sale on here a while back. caveat with the dmc - if you add other SA pedals later you WILL need a Hub
  17. Very, very nice indeed. That’s some A game boarding. GREAT choices of pedals and MIDI fun here.
  18. Coz it’s some good looking bits is why! Can’t help the feeling that a butterscotch Tele needs to feature in my future. When my wrists won’t handle a 5er any more….
  19. I’m an always on, fairly heavyish comp user. HPF into a Keeley Bassist for me: only 4:1 but triggering on most notes most of the time, really helps the bass sit just right in the mix.
  20. I’ve just started gigging again with a new covers band… me and the drummer are fine, singer and guitarist (his band) need some work. Like, not having to look at the fretboard all the time sort of work. First gig was last Saturday, and yeah it was the same old covers to a local pub audience but I loved it. Main band has petered out due to health, grandkids and being too comfortable on the sofa. But I’m loving the new band despite any issues. It’s made me play again, and learn the PROPER bass line for stuff. I’m loaded in and set up in 30 mins coz I’m just playing, not PAing or singing and the gear’s so light and small these days I don’t even need the seats down in the Golf! I get why the appeal fades, but it’s very much back for me… another 7 gigs booked this year so far, all new pubs to me. I’m the bass player in a pub rock covers band - perfect!!
  21. Ah that’s really tasty. Need the other 2/3 now please
  22. This is my favourite thing on the internet at the moment. I’m so happy seeing lots of virtual bass friends back out playing music!
  23. I can finally join in!! Yay! First gig with a new covers band in a local pub. Went well: learnt 49 songs (I mean, they’re all songs all of us know, nothing taxing!) and it went great! Some stuff with proper “you gotta play the original line coz that’s the meat of the song” like Crazy Little Thing and Pump It Up, and a good sprinkling of stuff where I could just play around. Because I’m not singing and PA’ing I just rocked up, set up in 10 mins and was ready… lovely! It’s the guitarist’s band and he (by his own admission) needs to tighten some stuff up. Singer’s good, drummer is ****ing excellent - next rehearsal I’ll add some harmonies and bring a proper mixer and some decent mics and… I’ll be doing all the work again. Can’t help myself! Pub was rammed, dancing and singing and repeat booking…. 20 min drive and £60 in my pocket. Loved it!!!
  24. Bargain. Wish this was up a few weeks back when I bought a new one! Great pieces of kit. Ability to flick between normal and dropped tunings is a must for me.
  25. Oh wait!! No this wasn’t mine. Mine was the other one @28misterteeis selling, the 1205. My bad. Whatever, they’re brilliant basses!
