  1. @fretmeister Thanks. Apparently the Bighead was delivered this morning; I can't wait to try it out tonight after your comment on the headroom. Hadn't heard of Amplitube (but then I have no music stored on my phone so probably just as well!). Sounds interesting, though. Cheers
  2. Thanks for responses guys, much appreciated! @dannybuoy two reasons really: (1) I'm looking for a really nice, crystal-clear tone from an amp that takes up little to no space (boxes ticked by the Big Head, I gather) and (2) I would like something with more volume than the Vox. @pineweasel I have tried many different headphones, from iphone ones to Bose (bluetooth) and Phil Jones (wired). I'm starting to think the Vox maybe has some technical issues wrong with it! The audio (to play along with) I often can't put more than halfway up before it's getting too loud, but the bass volume I have set to full, and can barely hear it. I checked the battery in the bass and the cable, etc. Only solution I have found is to crank the gain up as well, but that kisses goodbye to clean tone... Guys, I ordered a PJBH from GAK at the weekend
  3. Thank you very much, already a lot clearer! Two more questions if I may - Can I plug it into the mains or does it run on battery only? And is it worth getting the Big Head 2 or is the original fine? Thanks again. Very helpful as I would most likely need to buy without seeing one in the flesh first.
  4. I'm looking at getting a Big Head. I've read the rave reviews (including some on this forum) and watched Phil Jones walk me through it on Youtube. However - and I realise this is a bit embarrassing - I'm still not 100% on what it actually is, and what it actually does. Could someone kindly explain in straightforward terms how I would go about using this thing? In case it helps, I have a Vox Adio Air BS and use headphones almost all the time. The Vox is handy for playing along with tracks via Bluetooth, but the sound quality is not great and the volume seems really low - I can barely hear it! That's why I'm looking into the Big Head, but I read reviews like this from Bass Player ... PJB has introduced a high performance multi-function headphone amplifier/digital audio interface: the BIGHEAD PRO (Model HA-2). The HA-2 is the second model in the Bighead series and is a step up model of the popular HA-1 Bighead with added technology and features. The HA-2 is a high resolution USB audio interface that supports PCM playback with up to 384 KHz sample rate/24 bit resolution. On DSD playback, sample rates of 2.822MHz and 5.644 MHz are supported, making it the ideal choice for musicians and engineers that desire high performance and the purest sound quality. ... and I'm lost. Do I use it with the Vox? Would it replace the Vox? Does it need to be plugged into a laptop? Anything else I need to think about? Please help and sorry for being such a Luddite. Thanks in advance.
  5. I'm after one of these (single humbucker version) in 9/10+ condition. Please give me a shout via the message function if you have one. I'm based in Paris, France but travel back to the UK fairly regularly. Thanks in advance.
  6. Rats, sorry to have missed this. Please let me know if it comes up for sale again!
