[quote name='bennifer' post='464753' date='Apr 17 2009, 10:14 AM']Hey, not trying to nit pick, butunless they've radically changed them since I had my set a few years ago, theres no iPod dock, just a minijack plug... so they're regular 2.1 speakers! Also, is the power supply American, seeing you got them there? Still, they were really nice computer speakers and look great on a desk.[/quote]

    Sorry, you're right. They've been in the box for a while and I forgot what they're like. There is just a minijack connection. The power supply is american, with a 13 Amp adaptor.

    Peavey 300 15 BW combo ??? Much better than the Epis ( lots of knobs, all in one rather than having to carry two things, and you can get some weight training when you carry it ) A bargain. Just what you need.

    No, I'm keeping the 310 - I love the sound. But I was wondering about adding to it, but only with an Epi. Ben White's selling a 310. Not sure if I want to add another 310, or if I should go for a 212 ?

  4. [quote name='Delberthot' post='459790' date='Apr 11 2009, 07:52 AM']I was playing at PJ Malloys in Dunfermline last night.

    When I got there, I was under the impression that the bass amp they had there was an SVT III but after setting up I had a look at it and discovered that it was an SVT II Pro.

    I've always wanted to try a valve amp so moved the amp over to where my own gear was and connected it to my cabinet. I waited in anticipation before I flicked the standby switch and was immediately disappointed.

    I couldn't explain what was wrong initially but my guitarist said that, although it sounded a bit warmer, it lacked what my own amp and sound have.

    I'm glad I got the chance to try it as I had been eyeing up a Marshall VBA400 for ages. They probably don't sound the same but I think that it gave me a good indication of what to expect.

    The thing is that I tend to go for an edgy, grindy, aggressive sound and thought that tubes would sound better than my current Genz Shuttle in that respect but its definitely solid state 1, valves 0.

    I'm glad I got the chance to try the amp out as valve amps are few and far between but I think that as far as my own sound requirements go, solid state is definitely the best option. Not to mention that the Ampeg weighed as much as my bass, cabinet and amp put together.[/quote]

    If your shuttle's a 6, and you find something you prefer and want to sell it, please let me know.

  5. The Epi cab is a UL 310, with 3 speakers, hence the odd 5.3 ohms. I was considering getting another identical cabinet - does this halve the impedance, or is it more complicated than this ? If half, this would present 2.65 ohms, which is too low for the amp.

  6. I have an old Crate amp, producing around 350 w into my Epi 5.3 ohm cab. The cab can take 700 w.

    I am happy with the sound I get from these.

    Can I use a power amp with the Crate to provide more power, maybe by bi-amping ?

  7. [quote name='fryer' post='455992' date='Apr 6 2009, 11:57 PM']bought secondhand in 2002. 200 w output with its 15" B W speaker, or 300 w if used with 4 ohm extension cab. Sounds good, and has lots of controls, ie, 8 band equaliser, pre / post gain, patch, etc, and can be bi-amped. Looks tatty. Fitted with side handles 'cos it's heavy.

    Need to sell to pay for the recently purchased Crate head and Epifani cabinet. Realised the previous price was a bit low, so hoping for £160. Still a good price I think, from what was said previously. Can deliver locally, between Basingstoke and London.[/quote]

    Price reduced

  8. [quote name='51m0n' post='457204' date='Apr 8 2009, 11:29 AM']For what purpose are you making these recordings?

    Is it a sketch pad, or are you looking to take some of those sketches into the realm of real multitracking - cos the later isnt cheap if you want really good results IME.[/quote]

    Only so that we can listen and improve. Not making demo's or anything.

  9. [quote name='Eight' post='456101' date='Apr 7 2009, 08:47 AM']Very good laptop + high spec audio interface + good sequencer software.

    Are you *sure* you need 4 simultaenous inputs? Having multiple tracks is great if you're editing, but unless you do that then for a practice session it seems like you're just adding complexity.

    You could record it all as one track if you plugged everything in to a little mixer and balanced the levels there. Just means you couldn't make changes later. Even take the mixer's output to something basic like a minidisc recorder etc.[/quote]

    No, I'm not sure I need 4 inputs, and I do want to keep it simple. There are lots of suggestions for recording everything together, like the Zoom H4 which sounds good, and easy.

    But I would like to, say, play the original song we're doing and record my bass line, then play this bass line and record a vocal track, on my own. Then when the boys come round, play this and and the guitars, etc, and record on separate tracks so we can re-do some.

    Different to my original query, now I almost have an idea of what I want to do.

    Therefore, is an 8 track, ie, Boss BR 600 suitable ?
