    [quote name='wotnwhy' post='448801' date='Mar 29 2009, 05:46 PM']should you type something in the signature box, it will appear at the bottom of every post you make. to have a pic on the left, check out 'avatar settings' in your control panel. and welcome to the forums! now lets see that vintage famus [/quote] so, like the 'my classical solo bass ...' and the video of you doing the tango ?
  2. I seem to have arrived at some chat line !! Joined last month, and this is really helpfull, for an old revitalised player. I started playing when my Dad bought me a Framus Star bass in 1963. Played for a few years, then haven't played again 'till last year. Now loving it - playing with a few friends, and collecting equipment - GAS is addictive. Now have Bob P's Hofner Club bass, a Fender Precision Lyte, still the Framus, and sorting amp and cabs. I've already had a lot of help from this site, and I love the photos. How do I get my 'personal photo' onto the pages - it shows on my profile, and where do the signature and other bits go ?
  3. Roland Cube 30 Bass. Four months old, used for a few hours only. Lots of effects - can detail if required.
  4. [quote name='bass_ferret' post='446871' date='Mar 27 2009, 08:27 AM']You might not like the sound of the shuttle cos we all like different things. It is quite transparent and very articulate, some people like a wooley thud and its hard to get that.[/quote] OK, thanks for your help
  5. [quote name='bass_ferret' post='445595' date='Mar 26 2009, 12:14 AM']The Genz Benz is a cracking amp but it may not be your sound. Try one and if you dont like you should be able to sell it on as they do seem to keep their value. I would be more worried that you have fallen for the old 1x15/2x10 routine but thats me [/quote] I bought a Warwick Profet 3.2, as a temparary until I find a shuttle or similar. I have read your review on this, and wish I hadn't bought it. Why might I not like the sound of the shuttle ? R
  6. [quote name='voxpop' post='446852' date='Mar 27 2009, 07:07 AM']There is two schools of thought...... 1.....All drive units should be the same to give a coherent and identical sound. 2.....Mixed drive units that cover a wider range of frequencies, giving greater flexability to mix and match cabs for different sounds and gig locations. I prefer number two but others will disagree. There is no right or wrong IMHO its just a matter of taste.[/quote] Thanks Mark, these are your ex cabs by the way. Until I find a shuttle or similar, I bought a Warwick Prefet 3.2, and it's too quiet for these cabs. I tried it on my home made with a 15" 4 ohm, and that's louder.

  8. [quote name='Raggy' post='445690' date='Mar 26 2009, 09:04 AM']Not just you bf, have just pulled the trigger on 2 Trace cabs also, but gone for 2 x 15" compacts [/quote] But what's wrong with the 2 x 10 with the 1 x 15 ? People seem to go for 10" speaker cabs these days. I thought it would cover the range of frequencies better ? I am using a Hofner Club bass, which has a mellow sound.

    [quote name='Telebass' post='446483' date='Mar 26 2009, 09:01 PM']Spookily, I too started on a Star Bass, a solid one. Also had a hollow Les Paul sized one a bit later.[/quote] Still got mine
  10. [quote name='silverfoxnik' post='446503' date='Mar 26 2009, 09:12 PM']Doesn't look too bad! You haven't put your asking price by the way..[/quote] I don't really know what it's worth - £90 ?
  11. 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 £170. Still a good price I think, from what was said previously. Can deliver locally, between Basingstoke and London.
  12. Hi, I have just bought Trace Elliot 2 x 10" and 1x 15" cabs, and need a 600 to 800 w head. I like the look of the Genz Benz Shuttle 6. But it doesn't seem to have as many adjustments / knobs as my old Peavey 300 combo, which has pre / post gain, patch in / out, 8 way equalizer, pre- amp in / out, etc.

    [quote name='Lylodile' post='440406' date='Mar 20 2009, 04:09 PM']Hi guys. I'm lylodile and i'm 14 from london. I've been playing bass guitar for a year and a bit and I love the instrument. I may learn an upright bass soon too. My favourite style is slapping. My favourite band is the Red Hot Chili Peppers. [/quote] Hi, I started playing when my Dad bought me a Framus Star bass when I was 13 ( in 1963 ), played in a band for 6 years, then stopped playing. Started again last year and it's brilliant - wish I'd never stopped. And I'm now still only 14 - hope you're no good at maths. Good Luck with your playing. Rich
  14. [quote name='voxpop' post='440866' date='Mar 21 2009, 08:50 AM']I can deliver half way one evening next week if there is any interest.[/quote] Interested in the 210, and I live near Reading, so could collect. Rich
  15. [quote name='bobpalt' post='439973' date='Mar 20 2009, 08:06 AM']Hi Richard. Mine is the real thing, made in Germany, presumably by hand using better quality materials, and its actually a limited edition model. Its in really good condition, and comes with a superb aluminium "bullet" case, specially fitted for this bass. From memory, I think its list was about £1,250, but you dont see many of them around. It has gold fittings which normal Clubs dont have as well. A bump is when you add a message to the thread, which then takes it back to the top of the pile (where more people see it) ! Bob[/quote] OK, can I come and see it at the weekend ? please email me on - [email protected] . Or 07590 063603 . Richard
  16. [quote name='bobpalt' post='439880' date='Mar 19 2009, 11:22 PM']It certainly is! I keep playing it sat down, wishing I could play it stood up! Bob[/quote] Bob, there seem to be two current ranges of Hofner basses - the club bass at around £1,100 and the contemporary series at around £400. I assume yours is the more expensive type ? They look similar, but presumably they use diferent wood, pickups, etc ? What condition is yours in? And what is a bump ? Richard
  17. [quote name='bobpalt' post='428908' date='Mar 8 2009, 10:17 PM']Thank you for those very kind words! Its still for sale if anyone is interested? Cheers, Bob[/quote] Is this still for sale ? Rich
