  1. There’s nothing wrong with phantom. It isn’t gonna kill you.
  2. I mean, pulling a jack out of a socket is pretty radical, right?
  3. I can't help but think this thread is going end up making an appearance...
  4. I've thought of quite a cool solution - sometimes the most obvious ones are the ones that are overlooked. How about changing a pot to a push pull pot to break the circuit to the battery. Done.
  5. Guess it depends upon the bass in question - but if you have a rear cavity cover, a little flush slider switch would suit the bill quite nicely. (Assuming that you don't forget to slide it to turn it off!)
  6. And then there's Amazon Prime. (granted it's one way... but it's only a matter of time)
  7. If you've got a problem, and if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... the Outlaws MC. I hear a kneecapping can be had for a very reasonable price.
  8. I would wager it's very low. Most people do one off shipments of items of great value. Bass Direct will have a corporate account - that probably allows for a greater level of care.
  9. In my case, the goods were lost at the airport. The claim was with Parcel Force. They tried to weasel out of it saying that it was FedEx and I should take it up with them. I simply said, I don't have a contract with FedEx, no tracking details or anything for them... no contact details or anything. They even said that it was probable that one of their staff walked out of the airport with it - and they don't cover that. Some of the things that they were saying to me was just plain ridiculous. Fortunately for me, I had a bad feeling about it all from the start, so documented the whole wrapping process. In the end of it all, I was out of pocket to the tune of an excess and Peli case. Just took me 5 months to see it through to resolution. God only knows how many days (yes days worth of hours) it took me going backwards and forwards.
  10. I had a hell of a game on a £1100 claim. Put it like this, absolutely everything is stacked against you. Bouncing emails, out of office messages with no forwarding addresses, their own valuation figures based on items that have no resemblance to those lost etc etc... Absolute hell.
  11. I was referring to the Donner power supply - if the input is 18v DC being powered off the battery which the OP is talking about, there's only one transformer or regulator in play to bring it down the 9v. I would be very surprised if you have any noise problems with that as there is no AC transformer in play. I get what you're saying saying though - but unbalanced runs from a pedalboard are unlikely to be a problem (and the most likely candidate would be a long cable run from your cable to the board, or board to your amp) and if you have noise leakage on a battery supplied source from a digital delay, there's a fundamental problem with the screening in the design of the pedal. Ive yet to find a noisy pedal battery powered board - whether it's all powered from one unit... or all units individually powered. It's ok to say "it's possible" - but in reality, it's not going to be a problem.
  12. What a world we live in, still insuring against a courier... when the liability should really land with the courier and their own insurance.
  13. Oh come on, it was close enough for Gavin to bag Kurt's beau... before he moved back to Gwen.
  14. When you are working entirely with DC, noisy grounds are not going to be a problem. In the DC world, I'd would argue isolation doesnt really bring anything to the party.
  15. It's one of those things where you definitely get what you pay for. Stereo is superb - I can understand why you want it... but as you say, to get anywhere near wired, you are looking at spending quite a bit of cash to get in the ballpark. If you can find a EW300 G2 it would do - it's essentially the same although the G3 uses the headphone cable as an additional antenna. I've got G2s and G3, I would have no problem deploying either. In reality, as long as you have decent line of sight between receiver and transmitter, you'd be hard pushed (e.g. you won't) find any tangible different. PSM300 (with premium pack) is a good call - but again, the restriction of tuning makes it less appealing if you are planning on using multiple wireless units... especially from different brands. PSM200 is trash - don't bother entertaining it. That's about as far as I would go as recommendations - and digital options are mono (not including the Lectrosonics Duet - but that's some serious money) and you are adding latency into the mix. I've found something EW wise though... I'll send you a link.
  16. Ooh! How does it compare to the M82 do you know? The M82 is one of my fave pedals but am always interested in hearing about alternatives!
  17. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  18. There’s P basses... and boutique P basses. Functionally, they do the same thing... except some just feel nicer and have a better finish.
  19. It's the definition of a P bass. Sounds sh*t until you put it into a band.
  20. No hurting here. I haven’t bought a bass for over ten years, I just play what I have and continue to play and develop to the best of my ability. There’s a lot to say for knowing your own bass inside our. But for others, there’s plenty of people of people that the gear is a big aspect of their hobby - secondary to the playing. And that’s cool. As for the bike thing - I also know plenty of people that own all the bikes and the Lycra... let clock up less than 50 miles a year. Again, bragging rights can be more of the appeal than the actual using of the stuff they have.
  21. You don't have to be a great driver to want to own a nice car. You don't have to be a olympian to own a carbon fibre cycle. Why should you buy designer clothes when the high street will do? You don't have to leave a snarky comment when you could just scroll past. (yes, I see the irony)
