  1. [quote name='Leonard Smalls' timestamp='1503560477' post='3359081'] The boy's not wrong! [/quote] Indeed he isn't. It's a revelation to me after 38 years of playing & also being one of the "I don't use pedals" crew. I always struggled to get the bass tone I was looking for only to find it's in a pedal. You live & learn,never say never 😁
  2. I'm using a Gallien Krueger MB800 Fusion into a single Barefaced Big Baby 2 & couldn't be happier. The only thing I'd like to add is another BB2 some time. This combination is the best rig I have ever played through & I certainly don't want for power in my black sabbath tribute band.
  3. Just got in from rehearsal & I have to say "Wow" The EBS multicomp has totally amazed me,I just love the fat punchy tone I had through the studios well hammered Ashdown MAG300 combo. Usually it sounds sh*te but tonight it sounded great,love this compressor to bits. I was playing classic black sabbath tunes & nailed it,every note far punchier than i have ever had. Highly recommended,I really wish I'd bought one years ago. If anyone cares my settings were 😁 Comp/limit just past 2 o'clock Gain at 10 o'clock Tube sim Rich warm bass bliss
  4. I tried a couple of compressors out at gear4music on Saturday & ended up buying an EBS multicomp. I really like the tube sim setting but won't find out how it works in a band situation until tomorrow evening. I'm hoping it all make my live sound more clear & punchy,it certainly sounded good in the store
  5. Nowt wrong with my BB2,I'm still loving it to bits. In fact it still amazes me every time I use it.
  6. Just got back in from rehersal & my word this thing kicks ass,where some jazz basses can sound a little thin this baby has a really meaty punch,you'd almost think it was active. For me it just blows my old stingray classic away & I can now hear every note I play,including the G string. Happy me. I'll try & post some pics tomorrow evening
  7. I'm glad I got this on Saturday then,otherwise you may have nabbed it first 😀
  8. [quote name='gthyni' timestamp='1502576979' post='3352333'] lovely. Love my old L1000 and are craving for a better Jazz Bass. How is the neck profile on those compared to a Fender American Professional (which I feel very confy with)? [/quote] Hi I've never played a fender american professional so I can't compare,sorry. It is a very nice neck though,G&L #8,it reminds me of an overwater jazz bass I had a while back.( except the G&L has a perfect body to neck joint,unlike the shoddy amateurish one on the overwater "hand made" bass)
  9. [quote name='scalpy' timestamp='1502576213' post='3352323'] Congratulations, can't wait to see the pics. Drew sold me my lb100 a few months back and I can't put it down still! [/quote] The red one I remember drooling over that bass,I was frantically trying to sell my double bass at the time so I could buy it. Congrats to you on your lovely bass
  10. Ok I know,I'll post some pics when I can 😁 Just been to see Drew at GBBL to trade my stingray classic for his beautiful USA G&L JB. Finished in 3tsb/rosewood + tort' By 'eck it's lovely,So easy to play compared to the stingray & sounds really good. They really nailed that vintage J bass tone & the build quality is exemplary,I mean it's perfect. Can't wait to get home a play with it (I may even play my bass too 😁) So chuffed
  11. I had a Kilo & while it sounded immense, sadly it didn't do so for long. Had it repaired' then a couple of gigs later it died again. The most unreliable amp I have ever owned,zero backup from hartke ( it was brand new) so not for me.
  12. [quote name='radiophonic' timestamp='1502289222' post='3350487'] Well its a question of where you would move it to. BD has a small car-park shared with some other units. My experience of the place is that it's basically gridlock during the week (vehicles on grass verges, delivery trucks blocking the narrow roads etc). Moving beyond the shop's slots means leaving. Asking a customer to move out of the customer parking doesn't seem like much of a business strategy. [/quote] +1 Especially when that customer is likely to drop a large wedge on a new bass. Totally unacceptable,if I did that to a customer here I'd get a proper bollocking. It's just bad manners
  13. Trades? I have a nice musicman stingray classic 4
  14. Musicman stingray classic of any interest to you ? Mint condition Black with birds eye maple neck & fretboard I'm in Harrogate too so pretty near to you. Cheers
  15. Dave's the man 😁 Never heard of him until I read this thread but I've had a good old laugh watching the videos,so thanks for that. Plus even though they may be crap,I still fancy a nice blue one.
  16. No probs Thanks anyway. I do like my stingray too,although I may have to sell it to fix my damn car
  17. Could you be tempted by a black & birds eye maple musicman stingray classic?
  18. Trades ? I have a lovely musicman stingray classic I may be tempted to do a deal with.

    Which Fuzz help?

    I use an Ashdown James Lomenzo Hyperdrive & really like it. Light overdrive to pretty heavy fuzz.
  20. [quote name='lurksalot' timestamp='1499801268' post='3333749'] A company re-visiting a policy is one thing , but when a customer is obviously genuine and spends £5K when dropping the basses off in the first place , it should surely show £30 worth of goodwill ! [/quote] Exactly,it's a pretty crappy thing to do after that kind of sale. I'd be shopping elsewhere in future.
  21. Love mine too,it's the best amp I've had to date,sounds great & massively powerful.
