    A ‘I recommend my bass’ post, but I played a £3500 CS fender in Mansons, Exeter the other day and my LB100 knocked it into a cocked hat. The fender felt cumbersome and overweight whilst the G&L has that sound but is much more comfortable. 


    I don't have an LB100 actually but I'd happily sell a kidney to buy one 😁

    Overwater are a quality act and the headstocks look fine to me. They are recognisable at a distance, which is what they were designed to do.

    The worst neck joint I have ever seen was on an overwater jazz bass I used to own,it had 4.5mm of very rough plastic shimmingin the neck cavity which left virtually no wood to wood connection,Just a large air gap.

    When I complained to overwater they weren't interested & said that it was perfectly acceptable on a bolt on bass !

    Sorry for going o/t

    Rant over 😀

  3. I recently acquired an Ashdown CTM100 too & really hated my Barefaced Big Baby 2 cab with it.

    After trying various cabs I finally settled on a Fender bassman neo 410 & find it brilliant with my CTM100.

    I also tried the bassman neo 115 too & that is also an excellent cab,so if a 410 is too large for you the 115 is certainly worth a look (It's fairly compact too)

  4. For old school I can highly recommend the CTM100.

     I found my Barefaced BB2 really didn't work well for the sound I wanted so moved it on,I think you will need a 4x10 to get the sound you're wanting.

    I tried several cabs at gear4music & settled on a Fender bassman neo 410,it suits me perfectly + comes with wheels too which my old arthritic knees like.

    True, I could jump into every Hartke thread and shout loudly about how the Kilo ( their flagship amp) I recieved the day after they launched here, crapped out after less than 8hrs use, and the following 3 months of smoke and mirrors and utter horses**t from Korg UK  (their distributor at the time) but I let it go, it was resolved in the end, I wouldn't pass water on Hartke if they were on fire again but I know plenty here swear by them and good luck to them all.

    +1 me too,Hartke didn't give a damn when my new Kilo died,they didn't ever return any of my emails.

    I got my CTM100 second hand from here & when i phoned Ashdown (twice) for a little advice they couldn't have been more pleasant/helpful to me so they get a big thumbs up from me.

    I think you’ll find yourself in heaven :)

    1st gig with this rig tonight & heaven was indeed achieved,what a cracking combination,I love it.

    I had a singer from another band in the audience complimenting my playing & my tone too, top night.

    Best bass cab I've had I reckon,it blows my now departed BB2 away imo.

  7. Typical of my luck 😁

    We had a rehersal on Tuesday night so I was really looking forward to trying out my new cab.

    The wife was out in her car so I had to use my old Mercedes 2 door coupe,but the cab won't fit in the boot & there's no chance I'm putting it on my lovely leather seats so I had to use the cab at the studio 😣

    So the very first time I hear my rig will be at Saturdays gig in Bradford - bring it on
