  2. Very specific question! I've just bought two M5s off pilotbicycles, and I'll be putting one in front of my amp and one in my FX loop. I used to use an M9 many moons ago, so I know most of the ins and outs of the unit. However, I'm wondering if it's possible to use one expression pedal to control parameters on both units? When I was using the M9, I could control up to 3 effects with one expression pedal which was pretty gnarly, but with it split across two units, I don't want a second expression pedal on my board if I can avoid it. There's no requirement for TRS cables with the Line 6 stuff, it just needs a mono signal. So if there was a passive splitter between the pedal and the two units, I assume this might just work? Not using expression pedals wouldn't be a dealbreaker, but does anyone have two M units and an expression pedal and could test it out? Or just a sensible reason for why it would or wouldn't work?
  3. Does anyone know if there's a UK based modder that will do something similar to this? https://www.jhspedals.com/products/mod-shop/ernie-ball-volume/ I already have the pedal, and I don't feel like shipping it off to America 😛 Never paid too much attention before, but I've started using the volume pedal again after a few years out and there is definitely a noticeable change in the sound as noted in the article.
  4. Lovely board What's in the corner next to the Ditto?
  5. It's the M500, not sure if it makes too much of a difference. To be fair, I've only used the footswitch at home, it's not been to the practice room yet. I've barely notched the master volume up past zero before it gets loud enough to bother neighbours. I have a feeling if I play with it a bit more at real volumes I'll work the levels out. I didn't buy the amp for its clean sound anyway, so it might just become a glorified Mute switch
  6. I have not posted in this thread since 2011! Are any of the old big pedalboard crew still around? I'm thinking TaySte, Cheddatom, Shep etc I’ve also barely played bass since 2011! Decided to move to a teeny tiny board (PT Nano+), but I think it was too small Definitely feel like I’m missing things, but I've simply run out of room. A lot of this board is taken up with 'boring' stuff, so I might try and move the wireless and the Thumpinator underneath. There isn’t a lot of room under here though! Currently using a Diago power supply 'off board', but looking to stick a Cioks DC5 under there when I get paid. The Catalinbread Hyperpak is a placeholder for... I’m not sure what yet. Might just leave it there. Also may take the DG footswitch off - I find the volume jump when you want to turn the dirt channel on is pretty jarring (plus I like dirt before reverb), so that might just become another grit/gain stage pedal. Not sure yet.

    Bought a compressor pedal from Alex - perfect description of item condition and communication throughout. Recommended
  8. I mean I’m not the biggest fan of side switches either, but as the project is for strictly rehousing and not modding, I understand the choice when it comes to the aim of getting the smallest possible form factor.
  9. I’m not keen on the front switches - I think it eliminates almost all of the space saving from just keeping the slightly larger enclosure. Side seems more reasonable from that point of view

  11. Gone I'm afraid. Literally couldn't afford the space, had to be tipped. Poor thing
  12. Yes, still available! And I agree ped - this was my first foray away from the 15W practice amp way back in the day because it blew me away in the shop! Be a shame for it to be skipped if it's at all salvageable.
  13. I have had a Roland DB-500 gathering dust (literally) for years now. It hasn't worked for a long time, but it was only cheap when I bought it so was never too worried. Not sure what's not working in it, but it's 100% free for collection from Sheffield S2. Might suit someone who is getting into amp repairs and troubleshooting, or just someone who wants spare parts for other projects. Specs are here if relevant: https://www.roland.com/us/products/db-500/features/ Looks like this:
