Re: NCD New Combo Day!

The skateboard is cool, but I can see someone standing on the edge during a gig and launching the pedals across the stage. :hmm

Re: My Current Gibson Basses

Dude. This is the modern day interpretation of a king with multitudes of wives and concubines. 8| My wife used to refer to my basses and guitars, as my harem. Why did she stop? Good question. We have two daughters and she may not have wanted to explain it to them. It may have just become too close ...

Re: New studio build

The better you soundproof, the more internal acoustic treatment you need too. A lightweight structure, that lets sound through, requires minimal treatment. The sound has to go somewhere, so particularly with the low frequencies, if they can't escape, they build up inside.

Re: New studio build

Greg, the room is against an outer wall... but that's 95% of rooms in any house. We're not super loud, but I've regularly cranked a 6x10" in there and my neighbours have regularly told me they didn't even know I was playing. Same for the large meeting room we have. We've had a number of pretty loud...

Re: Maybe a dumb D.I question

If you're using the DI out on your amp, then yes, the gain will affect the level. If I'm using the amp DI, I make sure to only adjust the master during the gig, as it's after the DI.

How much did it go for?

Would have been a good buy at $290.
