  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  2. Just joking, if you need me to explain to you, somebody of my age, from where I’m from would not normally listen to this style of music. Don’t worry, I work with autistic people, so I’m used to describing things to people with no concept of social cues or humour.
  3. I've not long had my M5 now, and it can really nail that John Taylor tone I find by using the neck in single coil mode and the bridge humbucker in series. Just out of interest what configurations you are using and your inspirations? I like Duran Duran, I'm a 37 year old man from Ireland. So what? 😁
  4. It really is, just a shame that it’s in lacking colour options. It’s growing on me though!
  5. Congrats, I got my M5 today. Looks lovely. If it plays well for you and doesn’t buzz when you pluck the strings, then I wouldn’t worry too much about the intricacies of setting it up, they seem to be quite well out of the factory. You could lower the height of the strings by half a turn each time. No point in applying any more force than you need to when fretting notes. If the string buzzes, then turn it back again.
  6. Thanks guys, much appreciated. You da best
  7. The active passive is a two way, but the other 2 toggle switches (one per humbucker) are 3 way and each position makes the humbucker sound different
  8. That’s great, but it doesn’t tell me what the 3 positions per switch do to the corresponding pickup?
  9. What voltage is the cap? I’m seeing lots of different values on eBay.
  10. My Sire M5 arrived today. It’s a great bass, lightweight and gets all of the sounds I could possibly want out of it (how lucky am I?!). There’s surprisingly little information however on the actual controls online. In the picture there’s 3 toggle switches. The bottom one is a 2 way that switches between passive and actively and the other 2 are 3 ways which alter the sounds of the pickups. The actual humbuckers can switch between series, parallel and single coil I think. Problem is that I don’t know which position of the switches correspond to the pickup options. I know about the other knobs, I have a V7 (which I might sell now) that has the same preamp setup. Any ideas? Thanks in advance 🙂
  11. This is exactly what I’m looking for. I’m based in Edinburgh, any chance you can post? If you have any other offers then I’m willing to pay more (within reason)
  12. Hi there, I'm used to purely passive instruments up until now. I purchased a V7 recently and the batteries are dead already. I've been using it in passive mode and leave it plugged in when I'm not practicing. Does using the bass in passive mode still affect battery life, or does leaving it plugged in when the amp is off cause drain? Thanks in advance. I'm completely ignorant when it comes to electronics and like I said, it's all new to me!
  13. An old line 6 lowdown 300
  14. Yes. Seems overly resonant if that makes sense compared to the others?
