  1. dub

    Clear B string

    Thanks for all of the tips on strings etc. I did get the Warwick strings with a tapered B and do the neck bolt re-tightening and I am happy with the resulting tone of the B string. I had to adjust the bridge for intonation so will stick with those strings for a while. No calculations were required!
  2. Last chance to buy! going on ebay soon
  3. These speakers are still available. Total bargain!

    Clear B string

    Thanks for all of that advice. There are a lot of different takes on what affects the tone of the B string. I will start off by trying the neck screw tensioning thing and try an all steel piano wound B to see what happens. I am generally pretty happy with the musicman I have owned it since the 1990s but I am interested in trying a 36 scale instrument to compare the sound. Any other suggestions on 36" scale basses?

    Clear B string

    Well that is all interesting stuff. I will try the loosening and tightening the bolts. That is a concept!
  6. Has anyone found a make of B string that will produce a very clear fundamental note? I play a Musicman Stingray 5 and have tried quite a lot of different B strings including the piano style ones but I find that there is always a muddiness to the notes played on the B string in comparison to the other strings. Not surprising given it's thickness but any suggestions welcome.
  7. With the right saw you could saw off a complete 2x10 from either the top or the bottom of the cabinet. Just avoid any screws.

  10. Is there a a general perception that class D power amps are lacking in something? If so what is missing?
  11. I should add that if anyone wants to make me an reasonable offer I may well says yes!
  12. 2 Celestion BG10- 80 10" Speakers 8ohms each 80W RMS each These are a very fine bass speakers which are in good working order. £20 posted Uk
  13. That last post was a mistake. I'm not sure what happened there! Anyway, if you want to replace the single coil. Nordstrand do a very good split coil pickup that should fit that won't hum.
  14. I have been doing a bit of experimentation with pickups would be curious to know if anyone has done much research on which design of electromagnetic pickups produce the greatest amount of low end (before eq is applied)? How low can they go?
