  1. That was also the reason I bought the OC2 I had seen it in Bass Player back in early 90s. Marcus Miller and Sting were also mentioned as users so I thought I would give it a spin. I barely touched it. I had thought about chorus, dirt pedals and envelope filters but I was just worried it would just be like that Boss pedal turned on once and then just back in the box. I have never felt the need when I have been gigging to add sounds. But I was just really curious if you guys used it a lot or just the odd song. I might look into drive pedals that seems to be the most likely pedal I would use.
  2. So I have been playing for almost 30 years and apart from owning Boss OC2 which I never used I have not really used effects. I was always curious about envelope filters but never really tried them. Do you guys use use effects a lot or do you just use something for the odd song or section in a song? If so what effects do you use most?
  3. I am looking for an advice or an opinion and hear about experience of 1x12 cabs. I have been gigging Bergantino AE212 for few years in a covers/function band. I am hoping to find few different musical projects in the new year but feel it’s a bit of an overkill to drag that cab around for either jams or small gigs. So I was hoping to find a light weight 1x12 to have around for these. I usually just stick to what I know so I would be looking at Bergantino again AE, CN or HDN. I have Mesa D800 and really like it so I was even thinking about the light weight cabs from them. So my question is, is there much difference between these three Berg cabs and if so should I be looking for any in particular? How do the Mesa cabs compare? And finally should I possibly get rid of the 212 and have two separate cabs so I can scale up or down as is needed? I see that Mesa has the 112 and 115 often paired up. Should that be a consideration instead?
  4. I played a borrowed Hartke HA3500 for a year few years back and it sounded good and was reliable. I think like everyone has said either amp would do a good job with what you need it for.
  5. I need to check this out. I became aware of her in the early 90s because she was regularly featured in Bass Player but never really followed it up. I was totally blown away by her voice on Rush Over a track on Tales by Marcus Miller. I need to give that a spin again when I get home from work. Thanks for posting
  6. Love that Miami Vice mention. If Don J would have been a bass player he would have played this https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5CR4lSORZ_Q
  7. Hey thanks for the tip. I did just that, gave them the measurements and it arrived today and it fits perfectly.
  8. It was around 1990 and it was a Japanese Squire P from the ‘80s. It was dire but started me on my journey. I played with a pick with no amp for a year. I got it in my head I didn’t want to spend too much money on this new hobby in case I would not stick with it. I did and after a year I bought an old Yamaha amp, B100-115 which was really heavy beast but got me going in bands at 17 - 18. Dont miss either of those to items but you have got to start somewhere I suppose
  9. I have a flight case that came with my ‘89 Warwick Thumb 5. The foam in the case has started to disintegrate. Any ideas where to get a replacement?
  10. If you like Thumbs they are one of a kind and you can’t go wrong with them. Been gigging a Thumb since ‘97
  11. No older ones have 2 band. I have two ‘89 Thumbs both 2 band.
  12. Trying not to derail this thread. I was just watching Dave Grohl’s Sound City. There are pictures of Nirvana recording Nevermind and Kris is pictured with a Dolphin in few shots. Not a fan of the band or album but I was surprised when I saw it. I have no idea if it was used on the album or what tracks but that would be quite funny if Smells like teen spirit would have been recorded with one.
  13. I have not looked at the current thing. I am really sad but I only like Warwicks from around 90 +- 1-2 years. And back then 6 was not an option. I read a review in Bass Player in 90 or 91 and that’s when I first saw one. Jazz bass on steroids was the description of the sound. It looked so different and interesting but sadly I never got one.
  14. My bad. I have never played one but for some reason I thought it might be similar
