  1. Another option is this combo which is much smaller and 32 lbs lighter than the 410 combo but still delivers that lovely Trace Elliot sound.
  2. This was my solution to being able to keep Trace Elliot tone in a compact package. I think the AH200 is very conservatively rated. It was using the same 410 TE combo in a rehearsal room that convinced me I needed TE in my life again after 30 years apart.
  3. Of all my basses this is the one that used to get used on the majority of gigs. These are extremely flexible soundwise and ergonomically perfect for me.

  5. Me too; it's a fantastic resource and I'm missing it.

  7. I'm good thanks Pete. Another thing that could be significant to buyers is whether you are including the original machine head that you've swapped out for the D-tuner? I'd edit the pickguard comment sooner than later too if I were you. GLWYS.
  8. Hey there Pete, good luck with your sale but that is indeed the original black pearloid scratchplate.
  9. Standard DAVA on top of heavy duty DAVA pick for comparison.
  10. The first pick I had was thrown by Jimmy Bane at the end of a Wild Horses gig at Brunel University sometime in the late 70's early 80's. It was a 0.88mm Jim Dunlop; it kinda skewed my preference, he was a great pick player.
  11. My heavy duty DAVA control power grips arrived today and they're very different to Jim Dunlops. Just look at how much thicker they are compared to a JD 0.88mm. They feel really secure in use and unsurprisingly give a slightly meatier less toppy tone than the JD. I might order some of the standard versions to compare.
  12. I've just ordered some of the heavy duty ones to see how they compare with the Jim Dunlops.
  13. When I switch to pick playing I have to reduce the amp volume. Is that my inconsistent technique or do other players have to do the same? I favour Dunlop 0.88mm nylon picks as thinner ones sound too "clicky" for me. My two main bass playing regrets are that I didn't learn to sing whilst playing or practice enough with a pick.
  14. 1979 - Gillan at The Kingdom Hall, Brunel University. John McCoy convinced me (and my internal organs) there and then bass was the way to go and he never seems to age! A wall of Marshall cabs crazy loud! (Some even had speakers in them I reckon). 2013 - The Subways at The Square, Harlow. Small venue at ear splitting volume. Rock & Roll Queen is brill.
