Re: Single coil hum in sandberg tm?

Sounds like something wrong, I would expect the other way around with hum on the neck pickup? Weird.

Re: Nbd: another german

You don't need to wax the neck or fingerboard if they are wenge or ovangkol as they are hard woods that are naturally oily. Natural maple necks yes, natural maple/afzelia/bubinga bodies yes. Unless they have a coloured oil or sealed body obviously.

Re: WTB G&L tribute L-2000

If you hunt around you could probably find a US made for very little more, they somehow don’t seem to hold their value very well. Surprising for such a well made and versatile quality instrument by there you go.

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

Fantastic solid state amp with plenty of power and a really flexible EQ section. If you can handle the fairly light for old style amp (relative of course) go for it! I’ve had a WT550 and WT800 absolutely no complaints with either. Very nice sound which has a definite colouration but one I like. How...

I'm glad there is a queue for this or I'd be tempted to get my Pino on, just waaay waaaay worse sounding.

Re: What bass guitar sounds DON'T you like?

The sound that frustrates the schnitzel out of me is that really clacky, sticky sound that always seems to happen on gear review videos. Even with headphones or a good sound system it's like they've removed the bass 50% and boosted the higher freqs. All you hear is a metric-fk-tonne of string buzz ...

Re: Maybe a dumb D.I question

If the gain you are adjusting is before the DI then yes, you are messing with levels. Likely the bass is going though a compressor at the desk though so it will get evened out. You might want to ask the sound guy next time to know for sure?

Re: Record with flats, gig with rounds?

lots of wise advice here. I am really stuck at the moment, totally confused as to which I prefer, flats or rounds. So I guess the answer is that I swing both ways hehe Well it's quite a generalisation but IMO it's a lot easier to eq rounds to sound like flats than the other way around. Fairly dead ...

Re: Custom Neck

Doing that much rework to a neck is not much less work than a build and potentially more if there are surprises, so unless it's cheap probably not worth it. Unless it comes with tuners, and you want the Warwick logo, stuff like that. Removing the board is certainly a task, then relevelling the neck ...
