  1. Well - and it's early days yet - it doesn't seem to. I've used it with a few different amps including a GK400RB, and best policy seems to be to set the amps' controls more or less flat and use the TH as the main EQ and as the DI, if you're going into a PA. Of course, like all of us, I haven't done many gigs of late and have by no means fully explored the TH's potential. To be honest I only realised how good the Aguilar was when I heard this recording from the Summer which is the TH going to the desk and the Gk and 2x12 serving as monitoring onstage. I don't know if it's the particular sound you'd want - probably not - but it sounds like a bass to me!
  2. I feel your pain. It's worth considering getting the Tone Hammer pedal and keeping the GK on, though. I got one earlier this year and use it as a pre-amp and DI. Currently getting the tone of my life, frankly. The Tone Hammer is quite subtle in its effect. I only realised how great it was when I heard a live recording from earlier in the year.
  3. If it's any help at all, I used one of these at a festival last year and it was a bit stinky poo, frankly. I'm not precious about house rigs and I hope I'm not a gear snob but this item fell short on every measure.
  4. I used an old SVT head and cab - the head was around '74 and the cab was earlier still - for many years and can tell you for sure that the cab is a HUGE part of that sound. Once, when the head was in for repair (again), I drove the cab with the amp section from an ancient 150w Peavey Renown tranny guitar combo and it still sounded like an SVT. I was almost disappointed, to be honest... Those 4-box sealed 8x10's are KILLER cabs.
  5. Got me some nice Gotoh tuner off this fella. Easy transaction, as described, decent price, good comms. Deal with confidence... Shug
  6. I love it! Bit steep at £403,mind. If he lived nearer we'd be friends...
  7. It's ok. Public domain now. Might want to PM yer bank details, though!
  8. I'll have these off ya. Send me your details and I'll pay you straight off. I can do PayPal but I'm having a sulk with them at the minute and would prefer to do a bank transfer if that's ok My address 1, Hargrove Cottages Padiham Lancs BB12 8TY Best Regards Shug
  9. C'mon, fellas! Somebody buy this. I wish you were nearer, Comrade. GLWTS
  10. In further news, I've just sourced the same stuff, locally and for immediate supply, at half the price. A cancellation call in the morning, I think...
  11. I've ordered the ply from a firm in Falmouth. Can't say I'm massively impressed: I ordered it on the 23rd April and when I chased it up yesterday they were quoting a despatch date of 25th May. Really bloody expensive,too... I got the ply cut to size. I've built a couple of cabs before and the hardest part is cutting the stuff accurately without at least a proper table saw or preferably CNC table. A circular or jigsaw just don't cut the mustard, no matter how steady a hand you have in my experience. I've always used a local firm but they were shut for the duration. Of course, they have since re-opened...*sigh* It's a 1212Sub that I'm making so no crossover involved. I figured if I need to I can add a horn and crossover post build. Looking at the response curve I don't think it'll be needed, though. So, I'm kinda twiddling my thumbs now 'til the ply arrives. I've cut all the bracing from some 12mm ply I had in stock so this company are just doing the main panels. I'll keep you informed Shug
  12. . Blimey! ''Jaco on the slide,''eh? I wouldn't mind hearing something extraordinary, then... I, too ,find such an excess of facility somewhat unsettling but I fear you may be clutching at straws there. I think the young fella could do my gig but I'm not sure the opposite would apply.
