  1. Just in case anyone wondered... I’ve just stumbled upon the answer! They’re from a Marlin Slammer bass
  2. Awesome, well it looks great - I’ve owned 2 headless basses and never seem to get on with them for some reason, but that one was tempting for sure! Enjoy!
  3. I just picked up one of these (2nd had and cheap) and it’s really good so far, I’m still happy with the powerplant jr I use, but this one has a couple of outputs that I can switch for 12v and 18v pedals I have if I make a second board... and it’s really low profile so would fit under any board easily

  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293893448795 I actually quite like this... anyone ever played one?
  6. Yeah his stuff is crazy cool, I stumbled on the site looking up info on old peavey amps. People were talking about how they love the sound of certain amps, but not the weight - so someone pointed out John K had made the sound of said amps, in pedal form.
  7. No that’s fine, I was only asking about that one in particular as it’s a personal fave... I have been looking at other ebs pedals recently (and owned a multicomp before, which I see has also been updated) ive not checked the ones you mentioned but would be interested to hear from anyone who has, to know what exactly has been updated.
  8. Cheers, yeah I think you’re probably right - it’s just one of those things where there’s a new version of something I really like, so I feel like I should probably try it. I’ve seen a couple crop up for sale and it’s tempting - I excitedly went to watch a video of it and was left a bit underwhelmed, seeing as I already have the studio edition
  9. I love ebs stuff and have the ‘studio version’ of the octabass. I didn’t even realise there was a newer one (they look similar - aside from an extra knob/different colour knobs) anyone grabbed one of these and able to offer some input? The one I have is one of my favourite octave pedals for sure, so I’m intrigued by the new version. I also own 3 boss oc2’s, valeton oc-10, sub n up mini, joyo xvi and a bass synth wah that does a good octave - a real mixed bag but gives an idea of what I like (and the fact I’m a little octave obsessed!) The updates/changes are a little strange to me though. The tone knob seems fair enough, but from watching a video, it’s not doing much more than the switch on mine does? They’ve changed the function of the switch to make it more accurate tracking in either high or low registers... but I’ve never really had an issue with tracking... so that doesn’t sway me. anyone buy one after owning a previous version and been blown away? Or shall I just stick with what I have?

  11. Thanks, yeah agreed, I always use a pair of 4x10 gk cabs with a gk head... but recently I’ve been wanting to try some more vintage sounds with old peavey amps and cabs. I love the look of a 2x15 as well, looks like it really means business! no I decided against lining it for now after reading so many conflicting opinions etc I probably need to research more before attempting it
  12. That’s better! I finally got around to finishing this off. I used Marshall grill cloth as it seems to be the closest thing here in the UK. Put a metal logo on (I already had a stash of these). Cleaned it thoroughly - turns out soap and water does a very good job (thanks guys!) providing you use a scrubbing brush and then rinse off the soapy water with clean water afterwards. Replaced the rickety castors for some smooth black ones. replaced the dodgy jack socket with a switchcraft one. Replaced corners with NOS peavey corners from eBay... I could only find the front type, so don’t look around the back yet, it ain’t so pretty. All in all I’m happy, it works well, it looks cool and still roadworn enough without being gross but best of all it no longer smells of a billion cigarettes!!
  13. I bought a pedal from Neil in what was probably my best experience using basschat! I posted a wanted ad, Neil responded, great price, sale agreed, shipped to me and I was playing it... all in 24hours! I do love this forum and Neil is a credit to it! I certainly hope to deal with you again at some point

  15. Much like the last time I posted one of these “what’s this then?” posts, I’m pretty sure it’ll be obvious to the more trained eyes out there but... these bass tuners, there’s something about them that makes them stand out. They’re old, heavier than the usual/typical fender copy types I’ve seen and the keys have a weird shaping to the edges I’ve never seen!? anyone know who they’re made by or what they’re off?
