thanks in advance for the support as I know nothing about electrical stuff. Long story short: my amp's power cable has gone missing after a show with my band and I need a replacement. I'm guessing not all cables are interchangeable and I probably need a specific one, but I have no idea where to start! I own a Tc Electronix BG250-208, on the amp's socket i can see "100-240VAC 50-60 Hz, 70W @ 1/8 Max Power".
Any tip or link to suitable cables is much appreciated!
Thank you so much,
I've recently purchased a Sterling SUB Ray 4 bass guitar and have decided I want to install a Seymour Duncan MM pickup that I have from a previous swap out for another instrument. I usually do pickup swaps and wiring myself as I havent gone into complicated wirings and have found information and diagrams easy enough on the net.
However, I'm a little confused this time round as when I've looked there seems to be multiple diagrams for all different EQ's and preamps, but not for the one i'm looking for. This may be because I am a novice and just missing something obvious but any advice or direction to the correct diagram/wiring would be greatly appreciated.
The Pup : SD Basslines MM pickup (previously from a Modulus Funk Unlimited) - only 3 wires (Black, White and Clear)
The bass: Sterling SUB Ray 4 bass guitar - 2 band EQ - Volume, Treble and Bass
Hi guys/girls I'm new to playing bass, I introduced myself a couple of weeks ago. I'm trying to teach myself bass by playing songs following tabs. But noticed I'm getting a horrible noise when moving from say the 6th fret down to 4th quickly. Not got much gain, a fair bit of treble and mids low and high trying to emulate the style of music I listen to without a p-bass. I'm using an epiphone toby deluxe iv and fender rumble 40 v3. I know its my fretting hand but what am I doing wrong. Please advise if you can and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Carl
Been searching on and off for the last few years about a name of a bass I fell in love with back in the early 2000s. Its driving me made and I’m wasting days trying to find pictures of it again. Need a helpful hand trying to find it again.
Things I remember about the bass was that is a custom...really expensive bass, green with gold hardware, had the most immense pointed long horn that was a masterpiece itself! Possibly UK built. It did the rounds around the Guitar Live shows in the the early 2000s and also swear it had some right ups in some bassist mags at the time....where I first saw it. I remember everything about it was handmade and was sooooo expensive at the time.
I even had pics of it up in the studio around the time but can’t find it online anywhere! So annoying?
So I'm an intermediate bass player and I would like to buy amp.
So far, I've played on gigs with borrowed AMP's (Hartke, Ibanez, etc) and didn't really need to buy myself my own amp and played connected to mix on rehearsals.
But now I'm beginning to have my own gigs with band with nobody to borrow the amp from, so I made a decision to buy myself my own amp.
I have a Marcus Miller JB-active and I play almost everything; some rock, punk, funk, blues, sometimes soul, sometimes pop.
The two AMP's that I think would be worth are Markbass CMD 102p and Fender Rumble 500 v3.
I think that Fender could be better for me, because it's cheaper and you can use bright, vintage and overdrive straight on it, but I'm not sure, if it's usable for styles like soul, funk etc.
However, my bassfriend has a Markbass and he says it's really good for these styles. But I don't know if it can play the heavier styles. Also the price is higher.
To sum up: Which one is louder? Which one has better quality sound? Which one is more versatile? Please also think about the price difference.
Thanks for every single answer :-)
