      They're great aren't they? It looks and feels a quality unit and I love the sound. Recording works really well too.

      What's with the two powers sockets on the rear: 12V centre +ve, 10V centre -ve? Does that represent a choice of power supplies, or do you power it off 12V with the option to run power to pedals at 9V?

    4. Muppet


      One is to charge it with the supplied 10v power supply, the other is for an optional power supply such as an in-car charger. It also charges via USB

  2. Just treated myself to a little lockdown gift - the Dunlop Complete Bass Setup kit.  Be nice to have everything in one place.

      Nice, looks like a very useful set! Looks like quality gear too at first glance.

      I'm now eyeing this or the D'Addario one

  3. Another shout out to MoJoKe for service above and beyond.  He is an absolute legend :drinks:

  4. Sliced the median nerve in my middle finger over Christmas.  Totally numb down one side.  Feels weird :(

      Phew.  I hope you don't feel a fool too.

      You never said how it happened...?

      Picking up a broken jar.

      Sounds much like tidying up and/or cleaning to me....

      .....I let someone else do all that. I highly suggest you do the same! :)

  5. Going into the studio tomorrow to do some backing tracks with my son on drums and daughter behind the desk.  Proud Dad moment! :)

      great stuff mate, I'm doing something similar with my son, hope it goes well, Jez

  6. A cancelled meeting afforded me the chance to try out the new Ibanez semi-hollow basses.  Very nice, and great setup on the fretless.

      I've just bought my first Ibanez having tried out a tribute kit build loosely based on the SR605 but with a simple passive 2HB configuration.  I liked the form and the neck.  It didn't take me long to realise that I wanted the real thing because the kit showed me some of the things I wanted in a bass that I hadn't been able to decide upon before.

      Given the spare cash, would you have one now that you've tried the semi-acoustic?

    3. franzbassist


      Quite possibly, yes.  Probably the 4 string fretted, or the Artcore short scale, which was also fab.

    4. SpondonBassed


      It is encouraging to hear that from the owner of a Wal.

  7. Picked up a lovely little Trace Acoustic TA30 yesterday.  Absolutely mint condition and perfect for domestic noodling :)
