  1. Thanks for all your suggestions. I did find something called OhmStudio that seemed to be worth a go but after loading it all up and hitting a couple of problems got the impression that it was a dead product. I'll have a look at Kompoz and report back
  2. It's a couple of years since I looked and then gave up but I wondered if software had moved on and people are able to successfully jam over the internet using something or other. Trying to get our band together in the same room is like trying to herd cats but as the most tech savvie and with time and various interfaces, di, mixers etc I thought I'd have another look at trying to rehearse/practice remotely. We are not bothered about seeing each other but would ideally sit at home with our instruments and a set of headphones on and be able to play and hear each other. we all have macs except one who has PC and seemingly connected to high speed internet connections. is anyone else doing this please and can give me a steer? regards, Chris
  3. Got enough problems trying to play a four string Precision !
  4. Saw Leland Sklar play with The Immediate Family last week. Very cool and great bass player. I spent half the gig trying to get my head around how he plays a bass with frets and strings that don't line up.
  5. Thanks for all the advice. I guess my dreams of making a killing have evaporated.
  6. I am going to New York in a couple of weeks, unexpectedly and have always wondered what the rules are about buying a new or second hand bass over there, taking the neck off and putting it in my suitcase. Are there any taxes to be paid, either side that would make in an unattractive proposition? Can I buy my dream Sadowsky or something a little more vintage a lot below what I would expect to pay in the UK? thanks for any guidance Bassyerbouti
  7. I am thinking of buying an Orange Crush bass amp (prob the 50) to cart around to my mates houses to practice rather than lug my full rig about. We are trying a little side project without a drummer and I am wondering how this amp sounds if we play drum tracks through it using the AUX input and I play bass at same time? NB. Does the AUX input jack match what most drum machines will have as an output? Presumably I can take a feed out of my DI box and use this amp for on stage monitoring too ? You can see I am trying to kill a couple of birds with one stone here. Thanks for any advice. Chris

  9. 3 ply white scratch plate from my 2011 American Standard P Bass. Perfect condition as it was replaced for a different colour very soon after purchase. Yours for £20. If you live in London there are opportunities to collect or drop off, otherwise I can post. Buyer pays the postage.
  10. Wow- so much helpful information guys - thank you . We followed Pete's instructions to the letter and got a good set-up first time. We are starting to know what we are doing which takes the stress out of it and let us concentrate on playing. Would be great to have a sound engineer but we are getting paid peanuts. Our plan is use proceeds from recent gigs to slowly build up our own PA - starting with a 12 channel version of the larger Yahama we've been borrowing. That way we can set it up and label it for our line-up. Thanks once again and happy Christmas to everyone. regards, Chris
  11. Guys, and especially Pete, thank you very much for this information. We've definitely been using the 'Monitor' sockets on the top of the desk to run to another power amp that powers the one wedge we use for the singer. So wonder if that was the problem, We will try your excellent and clear instructions and report back. Thanks once again, regards, Chris
  12. sorry to use this area to ask a dumb question but we have a gig tomorrow night and are using an unfamiliar mixer. plus we are fairly clueless when it comes to PA's we used it 2 weeks ago and eventually got the thing working but along the way managed to deafen the pub with huge feedback during the setup. It's a Yamaha MG series mixer. the thing that freaked us out was that we had all the mic faders all the way down but we were still getting sound out of the speakers from them. Sounds like we did made a rookie error. Can anyone explain what we might have done wrong please? regards, Chris
  13. I was at the gig last night and managed to get up close to watch the great man's technique - he is amazing and must have burnt a few thousand calories wrestling those beautiful tones out of his bass. Wishing him a speedy recovery
  14. My Orange Terror Bass 500 has been working fine for over 2 years since Orange replaced something that went pop inside under an extended warranty from Absolute Music. Today the fan made a loud vibrating propeller type sound when I switched it on and I switched it off , took the cover off and had a good look at the fan before trying again. It was then fine for the next couple of hours playing. I've got a gig this weekend and am now nervous its going to let me down. Has anyone had similar experience? does one incident always lead to a failure or can something come and go away? Has anyone replaced their fan and if so is it a DIY job - I am fairly competent. Any info on where to source a fan very appreciated. regards Bassyerbouti
