Total Watts

  1. I have owned both and the tone circuits are identical with the SBP-1 having additional features such as DI and Tuner out. I went with the SBP-2 as it has a smaller footprint and takes up less space on my pedalboard.
  2. I have a Vanderkley Spartan and GR Bass cabinet. I recently switched from 4x10 to 2x10. My rig is very transparent and adds nothing to the tone. When practicing at home I mostly play through an ancient set of Event TR8 studio monitors and still get the same tone. I also found dropping down a string gauge worked for me. I now play 40-100 Hi-Beams which give a bit more snap than 45-105 strings.
  3. That is exactly the tone I was looking for and I feel using the SBP-2 with the stock pickups got me most of the way to my desired result. Strings will also be important. I use DR Strings Hi-Beams but Newtone Strings were also very close. I wanted to try Dunlop which Marcus uses but had two strings break during installation in the two sets I tried so gave up. Edited to add that I found having the pickup height much lower than the Fender specification really helped get the tone I wanted.
  4. I have the same bass and had the same requirement. I tried different pickups and internal preamps but nothing worked for me. The eventual solution was using the stock pickups with an external Sadowsky SBP-2 preamp pedal. Sheer magic.
  5. I've messaged him several times through his website contact form to ask a question about left handed compatibility and heard nothing back. I've given up and gone back to sticking a bit of foam under the strings.
  6. Back up for sale as previous sale fell through. Price drop. GR Bass AT410+ 1200W 4 ohm Carbon Fiber Cab - £900 £850 Including UK Delivery. Includes Hotcovers custom cover. Bought in January and used for one gig. In pristine condition. Simply the best cab I have ever played through. Selling as I have made the difficult decision to retire from gigging so no longer need this beast and plan to downsize to something a lot smaller for home use. All the specs can be found here: https://www.grbass.com/portfolio/at-410-plus/ Demo and collection welcome in Glasgow.
  7. I bought an M4 recently and love it. I have also owned a few more costly MOTU interfaces back when I was doing this more seriously. Great bits of kit.
