  1. I bought Wayne’s Aguilar TM500 amp and he was a pleasure to deal with from the start to the finish. He had offered tea and coffee if it was possible to go to his house and try the amp out but that wasn’t possible for me. He instead placed a tea bag and a chocolate roll inside the carefully and wonderfully prepared bullet proof package that contained the amp. What a great guy. Many thanks Wayne. I am delighted with amp which is a good as new and not a mark on it. What a pleasure to buy from such a top guy. Colin

  3. Very interesting!! I just googled musician and it said that a musician is someone who playes a musical instrument!
  4. [quote name='EBS_freak' timestamp='1359721075' post='1959283'] Put it at the front of the chain or at the end depending upon application. Front of chain is no good if you are using effects that rely on triggering dynamics e.g. envelope filters - but a compressor after the envelope filter reigns in the peaks so it's more friendly on your ear and speakers. (Anybody who has owned a funk a duck knows what I mean). Front of chain is good for reigning in the dyanmic range so you can boost your signal without peaking out... What are you trying to achieve with the compressor? [/quote] Im not planning on using an envelop filter at the moment. I swap a lot between normal playing and slappy stuff so im really just looking to level out the peaks that I get when I slap. Also when I go to lower notes on the 5th string it can get a lot louder and would just like to tame that a bit. Any effects I use are pretty subtle so I dont see them giving me any problems if I put it at the front. Am I right in thinking that for me it doesn't really matter as it will compress the signal either way?
  5. Thanks for all your input. I'll try it before and after a few times. Doddy's reply confirmed what I was sort of thinking and it will even out things after any effects. I had a little go of it earlier and I think I will probably end up with it at the start of the chain. Its a nice compressor
  6. I am waiting on getting a markbass compressore pedal which I am going to use at the same time as a multieffect pedal. My question is this.... would it be better to put it in before the other effect pedal or after it? I suspect it is basically personal preference but what do most people do? Im sure I remember reading a similar question that somebody asked and I cant find thread and I cant remember what the answer was so sorry if this has already been discussed. Cheers Colin
  7. pm sent to you Waveydavy. Think I will buy this if you can post it to Dundee?

  9. Hi there are you still selling your strap locks?
  10. Think I just sent a pm using my phone but not sure if it worked? It went a bit funny on me! If not I would like to buy the line6 please!! Ill try sending another pm when I get to my computer later on. cheers colin
  11. [quote name='xgsjx' timestamp='1348055391' post='1808537'] I used to use a Vox Venue 30 Bass combo. A nice smallish 1x12. Ironically, it weighs more than my Markbass 2x10 combo, despite being about 1/3 of the size! Why not just get a small 1x10 (1x12) cab to plug the GB into & leave that at home? [/quote] I had thought about getting a small cab for the GB but even though it would take a couple of minutes to plug in etc its just another hassle and I would like to just have an amp thats ready to go!
  12. Geeeeepers!!! Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. So in summary amongst other amps a few people are suggesting a line 6 studio 110 and a few suggesting a rolland bass cube 30 which I had considered. There is a guy on the for sale forum selling one so maybe I'll drop him a pm. Cheers all and thanks for your suggestions. Colin
  13. I am thinking of getting a decent practice amp as I am fed up lifting my 2x12 up 28 stairs in the middle of the night after gigs etc etc. Can anybody suggest a nice amp for the house? Im wanting to get a used amp for maybe £150 max but hopefully a lot less. Any suggestions? Colin
  14. Are the strings still up for grabs?
