    Anyone tested Darkglass vs GK?

    Wot he said 😁 It's extremely bloody loud in fact & has all the heft I'll ever need.

    We play classic Sabbath covers & I did get an awesome vintage growl just using a little of the B3K blended in,my jazz sounded awesome,I couldn't stop grinning. Love the amp to bits & I am enjoying playing with the controls too,I just wish it had a headphone socket.

    Lol 😁 So I used this at Monday's rehearsal through a very well hammered old Ampeg SVT410HLF & it still sounded awesome. It's punchy as hell too although as I discovered if I blend too far towards full on distortion I loose all of the bottom end. I just need to use it more & get used to how everything works together to get the best from it,but so far I am very impressed with it,can't wait to hear it through some decent speakers.

    Oh 'eck 😁 I just need to move my Fender Bassman Neo 410 now. It is a fantastic cab but just a bit of a struggle for my knees,especially on stairs,whereas the VK's should be a doddle. I used to have a Big Baby 2 ,it was a brilliant cab but I fancy something different & those VK's look so damn sexy.

    Thank you for all of your help & advice on this guys,you are very helpful,I really appreciate it. But in the end I bought a darkglass microtubules 900 instead,mainly for ease of transport & I have to say it does exactly what I need it too. Thanks again

    They look absolutely gorgeous too 😁 I'm mighty impressed with the amplifier though & can't wait for tomorrow night's rehearsal,even in the house at very low volume it sounds fantastic,I'm so happy I bought it. I did try an EBS Reidmar 750 too but after playing the DG is sounded incredibly bland. I'm sure they are fantastic amplifiers too but just not after hearing the DG. Even the clean channel sounds so musical,who needs a valve amp 😁

    Thanks guys. On the subject of cabs I really fancy a pair or Vanderkley 112MNT's.

    I agree Lozz,it has a very nice clean tone,so punchy & you can add as much of two overdrives as you want. Great for funk 👍
  9. Went to gear4music this morning to try this head out & I just can't get over how awesome it really is. It must be impossible to make it sound bad,it is the best head I have ever used & the two distortions are fantastic too. I had to sell my ctm100 due to having arthritis in my knees & was worried I would miss the "heft" but I am happy to report that this is one "heafty" mofo 😁 Just need to move my 4x10 & get a pair of 1x12's now.

    I'll definitely be buying a crown XLS amplifier then, Do I really need the power of the XLS1502 ? Or will an XLS1002 suffice? It will always be in bridge mode Initially I'll be running through my Fender 4x10 cab but will soon switch to a BB2 or similar,eventually I aim to have 2 BB2's. Cheers

    Anyone a member of Scotts Bass Academy?

    I'm seriously thinking of joining mainly to learn some theory. I'm totally self taught & have been playing 39 years now,can play pretty much anything I put my mind to but when it comes to writing bass lines or fills or even a solo I struggle to play anything new/interesting. Frankly I'm pretty bored with my own playing,the same old licks time after time,it feels like I hit a wall years ago. I do get regular compliments on my bass playing at gigs etc' but I feel frustrated with myself so maybe it's time for some decent tuition.

    I have considered exactly this 👍 But I decided that if I'm going to do it I may as well get a killer rig that is suitable for any venue. Eventually I will probably run this through 2 Big Baby 2 cabs,which I'm sure will sound absolutely epic. Thank you for the suggestion though,it is still a possibility.
  13. Hi,technically it is sold & my buyer said he is collecting it on Tuesday. However if he doesn't I'll let you know. Cheers
