    Dingwall

    Not lefties but love both of mine. Both are light weight especially the ABZ,that is very light. Build quality on both is excellent. Fan frets are not a problem,I adapted to them in just a few minutes. I sold all of my vintage style basses after I got my first Dingwall as they are just so much better & more comfortable to play. BTW I owned one of the older combustions with the 2 band preamp & think they sound very bland,the later ones are a massive improvement.
  4. I've recently done pretty much the same thing as the OP. Got bored with my old school Fenders & Rickenbacker. Ended up with two Dingwall basses which I'm really loving,they have rekindled my love of playing bass & are definitely nothing like a Fender.
  5. My Darkglass MT900 has never struggled at all,in fact I think my ear drums would implode well before it ran out of oomph. It is insanely powerful
  6. It works surprisingly well in this piece of doom metal. Excellent tune too
  7. OK so at rehearsal I discovered my Harmonic Booster appears to be faulty making a deep pulsing hiss which proper flaps my speakers. It does this whether it is engaged or not. Didn't notice it at home on mega low volume with my ringing old lug 'oles. We checked absolutely every thing else but my HB is definitely not happy. Bugger 🙁
  8. I switched off during my secondary school music classes after the teacher,a Mr Weston,asked the class "Do any of you play a musical instrument" I stuck my hand up & when asked replied "I play bass guitar sir" At which point he scowled at me & said "Does any play a proper musical instrument" That did it for me,even at the tender age of 12 I knew he was a knob end.
  9. I've just bought a Darkglass Harmonic Booster & so far at home I'm really liking it. It's a very versatile & musical sounding clean pre amp Big test at rehearsal tonight but I'm confident it will be amazing.
  10. You're such a Stinging fan boy 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Are you Big Poppa
  11. bought new by me in march this year. This is a mk1 version & is in immaculate "as new" condition. Original box including manual & stickers etc Price is delivered to mainland UK
  12. Me neither in 41 years,never had a bass with a dead spot & I have owned a ridiculous number of basses.
  13. Well for what it's worth I have owned 3 stingrays over the past few decades,all 4 string single H. 3 band - quiet G string 2 band - quiet G string - a Nordstrand pickup helped but still not perfect 2 band classic - quiet G string Used in totally different genres over the years & every one of them had a weak G which just disappeared in a live mix,hence each was moved on fairly quickly. I do like the look & feel of them,especially the classic,but they just don't work for me. I do wonder if the new ones are any better.
  14. Best cab I have ever owned is my current Markbass NY122 as recommended to me by Drew who used to own GBBL. Really nice tone with my Darkglass MT900 & nicely controlled low end,I really don't like super deep boom. It's small,light & massively better built than my Barefaced BB2 was.
