  1. D'oh, these always go WAY too quick. Definitely interested if things fall through (doubt it though).
  2. PM'ed (twice, once yesterday morning, once today).

  4. Nice to know I'm not going mad. My experience with the promethean. -Went into a shop to try a shuttle 3.0 and saw the promethean. A/Bed them, loved the Promethean. -Went home to see what other people thought (no luck, at the time it seemed nobody had them). -Resolved to buy it, went back... it had been sold! -When they got another one in... What? How come I didn't notice that hiss before? In the end I got something else. Been following your other thread, and I'm glad to hear you got a good one in the end Lovely tone (the shuttle sounded so thin in comparison). If Ibanez can just get the quality control sorted out I think they've got a good thing going here.
  5. Zombie by the Cranberries. Played it to (un)death with the band, guess that's why it keeps coming back
  6. [quote name='Alien' post='849998' date='May 28 2010, 01:51 AM']So, do we have enough takers to get the little fella on the road too? A[/quote] Playing at my own wedding in two weeks (battle of the bands against my Fiancée's band) would be awesome to have it for that Otherwise I might have to look at taking Alex up on his one month free trial thing (After all, I don't want to be rude and skip the queue) Only risk being that I'd end up accidentally keeping it.
  7. I'm definitely interested. (Band has a drummer again, wooo!) Would like to see how this pairs with an RH450. Based in Cambridge As for DOOM, I seem to remember these have a tweeter control if that's not your sort of thing?
  8. Hello everyone Been lurking around here for a while, and I've even bought several items from various other basschatters now, so it's probably about time I introduced myself. Switched to bass about a year ago after previously playing guitar, violin and viola. Started with a cheap p-bass copy, but hey, it did the job I'm now playing in a rock/metal covers band, we've got our gigging toes wet, and we've recently started looking at writing original material. Now playing an Ibanez SR700 (attracted to the slim neck, I find can move around a lot quicker), and after borrowing various combos for the last year I've finally got my own amp, an RH450 plugged into a 15" Ashdown cab. Pedals include a Lomenzo hyperdrive and a bass big muff. Forum avatar is copyright me, yesterday evening (2010) And as I write this, I've just received an email saying that our drummer is leaving :-S Hmmm, hopefully the band will survive (otherwise I will have no excuse to trade gear any more). Bother. Well, all the best everyone, great community you've got here H-fish
  9. The Genz Benz STL-8t cab (you can get it without the amp) fits that description... [url="http://www.genzbenz.com/?fa=detail&mid=2350&sid=617&cid=96"]http://www.genzbenz.com/?fa=detail&mid...=617&cid=96[/url] Although it's not that much more compact than some of the other 10s and 12s out there. The Gallien Kreuger MBX 112 is very compact for a 12, not much bigger than the shuttle 8t... [url="http://www.gallien-krueger.com/products_mb_series.html"]http://www.gallien-krueger.com/products_mb_series.html[/url] (I've spent some time looking into this before when trying to devise a setup I could cycle to rehearsals with, fell apart when we started doing gigs)
  10. [quote name='deej' post='801988' date='Apr 10 2010, 06:26 PM']Have the prices of these gone up recently? There doesnt seem to be anyone doing the whole package for £799 anymore, and the amp is generally going for £899 on its own.[/quote] Oooh-kay? The Bonners website still has the amp listed as "in stock" for £745 (who knows how long for mind). That's a pretty hefty hike though. Glad I got my bundle last week. The cabs suddenly look a lot less tempting though.
  11. Ok, for various reasons, narrowing it down to just two. Ashdown ABM mini 15: Probably about the smallest 115 cab around. Apparently less bass response than you'd normally get from a 15 because of the tiny cabinet. Barefaced Midget: Probably about the smallest 112 cab around. Apparently very deep and loud for a single 12. How would these compare to one another. Would either get me close to gigging volume. Anyone tried both? Cheers all
  12. *After some more time spent with a tape measure* Admittedly I don't have the best tessellation skills in the world, but ideally something that has two dimensions less than 40cm (but the other one can be a lot bigger), would work best. Which from my original suggestions looks like the... NY121 (x2 if I could afford it, which I can't) Barefaced midget RS210 And strangely the Markbass traveller 122, which would fit better than the 102, but is outside my budget But precludes the compact, 210T, and AE112 :-S Cheers anyway
  13. In a strange turnaround, I now find that I am the designated/only driver in my band. Getting all of the equipment and people for a rock/metal five piece into my car (bar the drums for rehearsals thank goodness) is pushing things! So, I'm looking for a small cab that will give me maximum movement of air for cab size. Getting good low end as well would be great, but sadly gives way to practicality *cries*. Amp pushes 450w into 4 ohm, so I'm guessing I'm looking for something with a rating of about 300W at 8 ohm. Anyone got any views on the following? Current shortlist... Compact 210s: TC electronic RS210 (84.15 litres) Markbass traveller 102p (84.88 litres) Generally had my favorite sound from 10s, although they've always had much larger boxes (e.g. Genz Benz 210T, Eden EN210XST). Not tried either of the two above, so don't know how they would compare with their larger brethren. Compact 112s: Markbass NY121 (59.23 litres) Barefaced Midget (55.49 litres) Reducing the volume and the cone area by about a third, yet both of these cabs have very good power ratings. How much low end and volume would I be sacrificing with one of these? Compact 115! Ashdown ABM mini 15 (75.27 litres) Technically smaller than a 210 but with a larger cone area (smallest 115 I've ever seen). The last time I tried one, the lack of a tweeter was bothersome, but with some eq-ing it was workable. The amplifier I was using at the time only put 260w into 8 ohm however, so not as much volume as I might have liked. Hopefully with a more powerful amp this would keep up with the other 4 band members? Never played it in a band situation. (For reference, Peavey TNT 115 keeps up at rehearsals, small gigs, and is too big)

  15. [quote name='clauster' post='775085' date='Mar 15 2010, 11:47 AM']Looks like there's both a speakon and a jack. I can't see an FX loop though. Am I right in thinking there isn't one?[/quote] Correct, speakon and jack, no fx loop. There is a tuner out though. Very nearly bought one of these, and then my band kinda collapsed the day I was going to go into the shop and buy it, so I have less of an excuse now :-S
