  1. Hi, i have Alto Tourmax SXM112A Active Stage Monitors which are birch plywood and textured. Over time the paint has been scuffed off the cabinets so they are looking a bit scruffy. I would like to tart them up. Could anyone advise what paint to use.

    Thanks in advance

    Unless it's a 5K plus PA with active cross over  I wouldn't bother especially if the sound guy isn't sure .

    We are trying to cut down on the backline volume because some venues are quite big and we end up loud to reach the far end so want to avoid ear damage. I do wear ear protection plugs though. Our soundman hasn't put bass through the pa before which is why im questioning whats best for the sub. As EBS said maybe he has the gain up too much from the desk. I will check today. Many thanks for your help

  3. Thanks for the replies. The soundman is learning so I want to help. The crossover is built in. Tops range 120hz - 100hz and subs 80hz - 120hz. On some songs I droptune the E string to D and use a low end sound from the gt10. So based on that which is the best setting for tops and subs? Last time we set up the low end of my bass kept cutting out of the foh.

    Many thanks

  4. Hi, I have a markbass LM800 and a soundman wants to put the whole band through the pa. We have yamaha dxr12 active tops and 2 x15 subs. Using a behringer xr16 mixer with ipad. Do I set my amp head to post or pre eq on DI if I want to use the settings of my gt10? Secondly, should tops be 120hz and subs 80hz? Lastly, should the soundman only put bass and kick drum through the subs and how does he do that  (in case he doesn't know).


  5. Absolutely brilliant guy to deal with! Communication was second to none. Item was well packaged and delivered swiftly and securely.
    Buy with confidence from this man!
    Thanks again Martin.

  6. Just bought a Ray34 Ive been after that was an import from Asia. Plug in and just get a load of fuzz and a high pitch squeal. Great - wanted to play it tonight so absolutely snorting steam from ears and nose.
    Took battery out which was a bit corroded but not actually leaked inside the battery compartment or onto the connectors. Played the bass as passive and everything sounded fine. Thought it must need a battery replacement so put a new one in and same thing happened.
    Didnt want to send it back when it just cost me an arm and a leg in shipping and paypal cost as well as import duty, VAT etc so got an electrician friend to look at it. He took the battery wiring connectors off (so I cant send it back now anyway) and put the wires directly on the battery and it played fine. The wiring is so short in that compartment that I'm assuming it got pulled loose. I'm hoping when he fits new connectors it will be ok but how would I check if its the preamp and what could possibly be wrong with it as the bass is brand new?

  7. I happen to disagree with most who tell you not to mention zany etc. If thats what he is then there's no surprises for auditionees. Best to be totally upfront or you will be auditioning and people will see a zany guy and think wtf and be off.
    To be honest JMB is renowned for being full of wannabes and wasters because its free.
    My advice is to pay for a featured advert and ask those interested to provide a tel number.

  8. No offence taken Synthaside
    I am after specific basses and colours etc but am offering cash....no amount stated. Before coming on here I'd been searching for a few weeks on evilbay and facebay gumtree and schpock. I guess I need to be lucky.

    Hi I've not had a bad experience using the wanted section , usually people have not been able to find me exactly what i was after but i'd always been offered things in the right ballpark by PM.

    I would ask you really look at your last post and consider the following ?
    I'm not trying to be rude with these questions but like with everything the wanted section its a game of luck / chance which one can make it really hard for ones self.

    1. Are you looking for something REALLY bespoke or specific If so your wanted add is probably going to struggle ?

    2. Are you Perhaps under offering money wise for the item you want ... i think of wanted adds as a "last resort to tempt a person to
    sell something that they wouldn't list normally so you might need to make the deal a bit sweeter.

    3. Is it an item that isn't too expensive , hence worth the sellers time to deal with or would be quite a challenge to ship for a seller
    this is again going to make it a challenge to get people to want to deal.

    Good luck out there , i assume you have tried all the other aveunes ... ebay , the Facebook guitar exchange websites which i've done some great deals myself on along with any specialist sites ... IE status for status basses .

  9. Thanks Dazed. I appreciate the help but have now had my GT6b repaired and if it goes I might just get a GT100 until a bass version comes along. I dont tend to use the amp simulators; moreso multiple effects and as a stompbox.

  10. I wont mention on here as I dont want post deleted but Ive advertised for several items in the Wanted section and am thinking its unlikely I will get anywhere. Maybe I have to look overseas. Can anyone recommend sellers ?

  11. Hi, let me know if you decide to sell the GT10b.

    I have had a ME50B, and still have a GT10B and Line6 M9 and Zoom multi effects - but never use them live and always use pedals. Its individual preference of course, but multi-effects seem to me to be "jack of all trades, master of none" For me it was a case of using the multi-effect at home to understand the sound I wanted, and then buying a dedicated stomp box pedal to make it sound good in a live environment. Best thing to do is give it a go....we are all different (thankfully!)


  12. Hi, I noticed when playing that instead of the bank/patch name displaying in the LED window there was scrolling of parameters. The sound didnt change but ad this with the guitar version and it was a fault that would require either the replacement of a controller or a whole new motherboard.
    Been looking for a GT10b to buy but not had any luck so wondered if there was anyone who can resolve the issues with my GT6B.
