  1. It used to be in my missus' salon and I'm now going to use it to intimidate vocalists when they're listening to their mixes. I can't take someone seriously who's sitting in a red chair like that.
  2. Managed to find a decent desk on eBay and picked it up quite cheaply. Also started on the acoustic treatment today too. I still need to install the computer and hook it up to everything. I also ordered a 16 rack unit which turned up damaged (thanks UPS) so I have an abundance of rack gear waiting for a home. I also got one of them portable vocal booths and managed to get some Producer's Choice sound blankets to cover it. The results are quite good actually and as it can be taken down it also saves on space.
  3. Just seen that it's £475 on their website. They have two which are £475 but the other one and a much cheaper model cheaper electronics. Not sure how they worked out that price but it's bizarre to say the least .
  4. I can't believe they're selling a 4 string version for this much! I have a 5-string model which was bought new over 10 years ago now and never thought it was worth more than £300 https://reverb.com/uk/item/40291496-traben-chaos?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=1726164661&utm_content=campaignid=1726164661_adgroupid=70264195649_productpartitionid=1259319190223=merchantid=218269047_productid=40291496_keyword=_device=c_adposition=_matchtype=_creative=391637461803&gclid=CjwKCAjw-sqKBhBjEiwAVaQ9a6LVPx4GzeD-8PByap5yEVDHOidW9Vj3XkBmFxV0eI2APNgvUUO1ZhoClWcQAvD_BwE
  5. We used to have a keep called Allen McKnight. His nickname was "McKnightmare" for obvious reason. He was dire.
  6. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  7. That's kind of my point. I do wonder if anybody would notice the difference between the two in a blindfold test. The same goes for different woods used on a bass
  8. From my experience high mass bridge allow for better (or more scope) for intonation due to the lengths of the saddle screws as opposed to the stock Fender bridge. As for the sustain argument, I don't think there's a measurable audible difference. I'd also question why a bass player had an absolute need for more sustain - a guitarist yes, but a bass player?
  9. I managed to get a set of Wilkinsons on mine. It ain't pretty looking at the back but it works.
  10. You'd be surprised what some strategically placed duvets can do for sound absorbtion. Obviously won't kill the sound dead, but it'll be a lot quieter to the point where the neighbours won't be banging on the walls.
  11. Definitely. I wouldn't have accepted them as a lighting option because of their reputation for hum and unwanted noise when recording.
  12. They're LEDs so they're supposed to be pretty quiet. I can always record during the day if they do LOL!
  13. OK, they're quite high frequency / pitch instruments so I'd recommend firstly sitting / standing facing the back garden with some sort of sound absorption or diffuser on the back wall. If he's in anyway handy then some kind of isolation booth with heavy blankets or duvets draped over the top. You'd be surprised how effective they are. We've recorded loud guitars (and I mean loud - think a 120 watt 5150 amp cranked reasonably high). The bottom line is bare brick wall is not going to be good at absorbing sound, especially the frequencies that recorders and violins pump out.
