  1. Blonde on Sky Arts now- 2010 Glastonbury gig. To my ears it’s sounds like they’re pretty under rehearsed. Clem Burke is still really good
  2. Trim pots fully open. Played notes whilst I turned trim pots up and down- nothing. Like the core sound of it, but I’m not sinking £719 for controls that don’t work. Thomann said they’re getting back to me
  3. Sending it back - just E Mailed Thomann , on how to do this . I've done months of research on the Sonic Farm , and was aware that the High and Low EQ switches are subtle , but they appear to do absolutely nothing at all . Thought it may be too subtle through speakers , but I've just been testing on headphones , and both switches seem to do naff all - and I mean zilch . Disappointed really .
  4. Trying this new mic pre out with my power amp, as a possible new rig, as a change to my trusty Eden head. Really nice it sounds. Tried with all basses, and the Dingwall, which is my main bass, and favourite, sounds great. Bogart, which is my least favourite to play, sounds great through it too. Modulus, which is all singing and dancing with every possible combination of actives and coil taps, sounds far too polished for my taste. Though I’ve hardly played it since I bought it.
  5. Trying it out now, really nice. Bass and treble switches don’t do much, but the core tone is lovely
  6. The tone controls are quite limited; but it’s really a high end DI, and basic pre. I’ll see how it goes. Can always add a simple EQ pedal on the board
  7. This came today. Won’t be able to try it out properly until tomorrow, when I’ll have an empty house for 3 hours - which never happens. Idea is for it to run straight into a Crest CA9, then into two Berg HD212’s. I’ll see how that pans out
  8. After selling my Aguilar DB751, I’ve gone back to my Eden head. Wanting a bit more ‘heft’, I use it into a Crest CA9. Sometimes I use the headphone out into the amp, or if I fancy bypassing the tone controls, I use the effects loop into the amp- so the Eden is then just a basic pre amp, with no tone controls. This works really well, and got me thinking. So my final big buy after the cull of most of my gear is the Sonic Farm 2DI4 DI/pre. Just waiting now for delivery. So I’m now firmly going down this road. There’s a few on here doing this I think, and quite a few threads over on Talkbass about DI’s and Mic pres straight into amps.
  9. I’m similar- Modulus 5 and Dingwall Super P5. I don’t need this, and by rights should spend on something else, but lately really drawn to P5’s
  10. I do too. I’ve got one big buy left after shedding all my stuff to have a nice active 5 and a nice passive 5 (P type). So don’t need another P5, but this looks lovely.
  11. Long sold . I genuinely thought I'd marked this as sold - got lost with a cull of gear being sold all at once .
  12. I thought you were maybe thinking of selling your one, as you’ve now got the Noble. I think you’d alluded to something like that a while ago. I suspect it’s too hard to let go- not that I blame you
  13. Probably a bit unfair, as I didn’t hate it as such, but the Handbox WB100 - their all value 120 watt jobbie. Did loads of research, and was in contact with the owner a fair bit too. Now playing Northern Soul, so I thought that it would be ideal, but it wasn’t. My little Eden WT400 blew it away. People talk about ‘valve watts’, but I couldn’t get enough volume out of it at all. My Eden head, was also considerably warmer sounding too- which was a major surprise. I realise that I had far more tone shaping on the Eden, but I wasn’t bothered about that, and I found it easy to get a nice tone, but it had no oompf at all. Guy I sold it to really likes it, so it may just be me maybe expecting it to be something it was never going to be.
  14. If I didn’t already have an Eden 410, and two Berg 212’s, I’d have this, as I’m in Norfolk. This should fly out I reckon
