  1. So, my love affair with DI boxes and preamps is getting slightly out of hand. * Not pictured: a BDDI (at guitarist's house) and the other SB-2 in my Helix's rack. So, while I can't bring myself to part with too many of them, it's time for some to go! SOLD PENDING £50 - Zoom B3 A perennial BC favorite, the B3 just does a lot of things really, really well. It has amps, preamps, eqs, effects pedals and all sorts of other stuff that can all be switched with their own footswitch. There's also LOADS of I/O, it's a great solution for gigging or home practice. Boxed, with power supply and manual. SOLD PENDING £95 - TC Spectradrive Well, it's the EQ from the TC amp with a Spectracomp added on. I mean, what more could you want? Oh, you want an aux in and a headphone out along with a great DI? Cool, you can have those. Boxed with psu and manual. £75 - Rolls MP-13 Fantastic mic preamp with up to 50dB of clean gain. XLR and 3.5mm input, XLR and TRS output. I've been using it on a board to take mic level DIs from preamp stompboxes and lift that up to line level. It runs from a standard Boss-style 9V psu. £20 - Behringer MIC100 Awesome preamp and DI. TS and XLR in, TRS and XLR output. Great tube DI and can output at either line or mic levels. Come boxed with a power supply. £20 for a DI! £50 - AMT CN-1 Cab sim pedal that I bought but whilst the controls are responsive and variable on guitar they're more subtle on bass and it's not really a pedal for me. As new (aside from velcro) and boxed with manual etc. I'm in Woodside, about 10 minutes North-West of Newcastle. Prices include postage. You're welcome to try before you buy and pick it up or I can deliver reasonably locally. I travel a bit with work so I may be able to deliver a bit further too. Cash on collection, bank transfer or paypal are all fine. In terms of trades or part exchanges (cash each way as necessary), I could be tempted by a: really cheap fretless bass (such as a Vintage or Squier), Epiphone Thunderbird, Tech 21 Paradriver V2, Peavey Tour 700 or hey, try me.
  2. Hey all, I recently bought this from Delberthot because I broke my G50 receiver and I was in a pickle but that storm (gigging? without a wireless? impossible!) has now passed so my need for this has also passed. It works with pretty much any Line 6 transmitter and it's powered by a standard 9V boss power supply. I'm in Woodside, about 10 minutes North-West of Newcastle.

  3. Derek was kind enough to rush the wireless receiver that I bought from him to me in plenty of time for a gig. 11/10, I'd happily buy again.
  4. Ginger Wildheart. Yes, now that I'm 30 and a musician myself I know there's 'better' players or whatever but that's not important. A punk rock band from my hometown that formed in he year that I was born made guitar music cool to 14 year-old me and they're pretty much the reason I picked up an instrument to begin with. I've been lucky enough to meet Ginger once or twice as well.
  5. Hey all. I have, like, and use a Phonic iSK 8A powered wedge. It's nothing special. It's not my Barefaced FR800, or either of my bands RCF or even Alto gear. But hey, it was £30 on ebay and it consistently allows me to hear vocals over stage din. A lot of my gigs are ampless these days, and sometimes it's even my only source of stage bass (helped by the main FOH subs of course). Recently: fart, boom, splosh. Broken speaker. I don't know what did it. Maybe I overcooked it on a gig. Are there any decent replacement speaker options or is it time to file the whole wedge under 'B'? What do I even need to start making educated guesses? Internal box size is about 19.1 liters, minus driver, port and bracing (so what, 17-18l?) And there are 2 ports with a 50mm diameter and about 8cm deep. The internal amp provides 300W and I totally forgot to look at what the original speaker was. I know I'm going to get lots of 'not worth it' responses and fair enough. Are any of the cheaper speakers on Blue Aran even worth it? Can you get a decent speaker for less than say £40? Probably not. Is there anything I can to save this wedge!?
  6. Will this work with the TBP12? My google-fu is failing me at the moment.
  7. I'm fairly sure it was my thread. Hook on the board! That way you can have loop on the pedals and THAT WAY you can safely put pedals on carpet.
  8. I have no experience with the Bass VI clone, but the Harley Benton that I own is brilliant and I've never seen a bad word written about any of their basses. If I had to take a punt and buy unplayed it'd be on that.
  9. My indie-rock type band uses the 712s, and whilst they're decent PA speakers they don't hold a candle to my Barefaced FR800 in terms of either output or bass response. I did a quick shootout once in a rehearsal room and I feel that they'd be great for guitar or something but they couldn't carry bass in a room IME. I haven't used the 732 but by all accounts they're much more capable, with RCF at least I'd say you need the not-budget ones. On the basis that the 735s are largely overkill and the 712s aren't really enough the 732 seem to be the sweet spot. Of course, you may have a different definition of 'loud enough' to me.
  10. I assume that, seeing as you mention bills, you're not interested in a trade?
  11. If it helps any, I got a Stingray in a trade that came with the MMSR already installed. I knew that the original preamp was better, so I took it out and sold it. I then immediately regretted it and bought another. It's almost worth it just to have bloomin' center detentes on the bass and treble, but the semi-parametric mid means it's capable of a lot more tonal variation than many basses.
  12. Gotcha, I do now notice that you said 'combo cabs' and that does make sense. Maybe I should stop skiving at work and then I would have the time to read posts properly. 🙂 To answer the actual question: I don't know of any female/female 1/4" couplers or male/female extension cables that can handle speaker-level signals. To be fair, at the voltages that bass amps use I don't like ANY 1/4" connections, but as you've noticed, they're your only choice here. You may have to make one.
