  1. Yep - Fender really upped their game in 2008 and the 2008-2012 instruments were almost there. The addition of the CS pups in the 2012-2016 range was the final piece of the jigsaw.
  2. I'm a big fan of the 2012-2016 range of American Standard Precisions and Jazzes. For me Fender just got it right with these basses. I'd go as far as to say that in my opinion these will become sought after and held in similar esteem to the JV's. Olympic white and maple is my preferred colour scheme.
  3. Mark likes his Berg cabs. 24 hours after buying an HD210 from Etienne he bought my HD210 so he could stack them. Having previously owned 2 myself, I know how good this will sound. As has been stated above, Mark is very open and honest. Great comms throughout and we managed to have a good chat about all thing bass & band related. Thanks Mark, it eas nice meeting you today.

    Boss SY-1

    I'm looking for the collective knowledge for SY-1 users - would I be able to replicate the hammond type sound going on on the Wolfmother Joker & the Thief track with my bass and this pedal? Thanks in advance.
  5. What’s the right rig? Is this based on a good quality rig irrespective of type or is it based on type i.e. valve, class D, solid state, quality cab etc? My Ric sounds awesome through all my rigs but I can really struggle to get a great sound out of it through some of the practice room fodder that I’ve had the displeasure of using. So, what’s the ideal rig for a Ric?
  6. Or 3) you have a great bass tone....
  7. I use an HD210. Bought it when it first came out (in fact I bought 2 to use together but quickly learnt I only needed the one). My Amp is a Shuttle 9.0 and it pairs very well with this cab. I have no reason to think that the 6.2 with the HD210 would be anything other than awesome. This is a bit of a bargain if you live in Europe. The cab alone is worth the asking price - you’re getting the amp thrown in for free. Whoever buys this will have a professional rig that will cover most eventualities. I’ve also used mine with a double bass and that sounds awesome too.
  8. Bought my first bass from Mameloks. It was a Satellite Jazz bass copy and it cost around £80 (cheapest bass they had in the shop). I got it home on the bus in a black plastic bin bag. This would have been in 1980 and I was 15. I saved like mad with money from my paper round and I loved that bass and the feeling that I had when I played it. Couldn’t afford an amp so played it without for a time so I could learn how to play. A bit later, my mother ordered me a 25 watt guitar (not bass) combo from the Marshall Ward catalogue which I paid off weekly. Horrible plastic thing that rattled like mad. The Satellite was actually quite a decent bass. I am now lucky enough to own some of the best gear money can buy but nothing beats the feeling of buying that first bass.
  9. Stunning looking bass that - great photos too.
  10. I bought an MXR power brick from Tiernan. Great communication throughout. It was posted on next day delivery, the packaging was bombproof and the unit was as described. I wouldn’t hesitate to deal with Tiernan again. Thanks mate.
  11. I used my OC-5 for the first time in a band rehearsal last week. It sounds epic! The tracking is flawless in the mix (and pretty damn good when used in isolation). It really filled the sound out. For those that have one of these on-order - you won't be disappointed!
  12. Just bought a Harvest leather bass strap from Chris and as you would perhaps expect, no issues whatsoever. Good comms throughout and received in super quick time. Deal with in confidence. Thanks again Chris.
  13. I thought I’d treat myself to a nice new strap with some birthday money I received late last year but this is a want not a need. That would have gonged me out so I didn’t subscribe to this. I’ve had a chat with myself and feel confident that I can go all year with no bass purchases (except some strings) so I’m going to declare my intentions now. Publicly stating this may mean I may be able to stick with it.
  14. Don’t stand too corrected, Alan Lancaster also played a Kramer.
  15. It really doesn’t matter what you play - I choose bass just because it’s what I felt/feel (I played tenor trombone as a kid) my Dad played trumpet, wife plays alto & tenor sax, daughter plays flute & Keyboard. We all get a huge amount of enjoyment of just playing music which is what it’s all about. We’re all doing different things in different ways and we’re all at different levels but we’re all getting the same amount of enjoyment from this thing called music.
  16. I’m proud to be part of this community - well done to all those involved in exposing this ‘person’ and his activities. I hope Walshy and anyone else owed a refund gets reimbursed soon. Top work guys!
  17. It's now added to the board.
  18. I had an oc-2 back in the day (thanks Pino) but moved it on years later as part of a clear out. Just bought the oc-5. On the vintage setting it sounds exactly as I remember the oc-2 but tighter with the improved tracking. Very impressed indeed.
  19. Gibson need to rename this colour as Sultan Blue 😁 Looks amazing and sounds awesome.
  20. Yes.....it does. It is also 9v which helps. The Radial Tonebone pz-pre is 15v. The EBS will power up on the board easier. The pz-pre is absolutely awesome, great sound quality and great build. For me it’s the best acoustic pre amp out there - until now!
  21. Please let us know when you’ve done the review Dood - colour me very interested.
