Re: Health Goals for 2017

I used to swim a lot before I moved south, I’ll run it past my physio Tuesday. I really should take this seriously, if something shifted again and I ended up with nerve damage my wife would kill me for being so stupid. Getting older sucks!

Re: Health Goals for 2017

I have a new goal, to not be woken up on the change room floor by a colleague after passing out from the pain of a slipped disc for the rest of the year. Physio and strength training in my near future, could probably afford to lose some kg as well.

Re: POLL Winner - Sydney GTG Sat 4th Nov 2017.

Well, I'll go first since I'm doing the longest trip. Gear: Genzler rig (Magellan head, 2 BA12-3 cabs); my brand-new pedal board (never thought I'd go that way) with a Boss MS-3 and a couple of other things. Basses: definitely 4 of my builds: original Kermit 6 string multi scale; Kermit Gaia 6 stri...

Re: Music Man amps

Yep, country, super loud and super clean, exactly what I want from a guitar amp. Same for a bass amp actually. Well, clean not to be confused with sterile, so plenty of character is a good thing but not overdriven as such. I only had one problem with a tube amp and that’s because I stuck a dead tube...

If this is the one you brought round to my place to demo cabs with it’s a killer!

Re: Thinking about a new amp...

Right, well I guess cab efficiency isn't the problem then... :lol: you must just need a lot of volume! I have a similar problem, can't really handle anything over 20kg. Two smaller cabs is going to be easier to shift per piece than one large if you don't mind an extra trip from the car. I really sho...

Re: Music Man amps

Cool thanks for that, very useful info there. I think you’re right from what I can tell the HD130 seemed to be the next step from the fender twin, similar to the stingray being the next bass step. I’ve been looking at vintage bassman amps for a bit but they’re overpriced I think, these look like wel...

Music Man amps

Any experience on here using them for bass? From hazy memory Doug in radeliade used to have a HD130 maybe? I’m intrigued by the 70s bassman-ish style but lighter weight. Have a guitarist friend that buys every vintage one he finds but won’t share...

Re: Thinking about a new amp...

Hmmm the Tecamp Puma 500 sounds great but Im worried about the percieved output issues that BigSwifty mentioned. For one of my my bands I need a fair bit of power! Puma 900 would do it! Same size even, small enough to lose in between the car seats. I was more suggesting the scope of tone and which ...

The 'Drive' is something I didn't use at first as I think I was still transitioning from the cleaner MB tone, but I now have it around 12 O'Clock most of the time.
Now you’re talking! The vintage vibe sweet spot right there...

Re: Thinking about a new amp...

I wouldn’t call the drive knob on the TH500 drive exactly, think of it like a character knob, only all the way up with the gain goosed would it start really driving. It’s controls are certainly interactive and do take time to learn. I know my fav setting and I like it a lot, gain and drive on 12, sl...

Re: Thinking about a new amp...

TH500 are closer in tone to the MarkBass IMO, the GK is clear and crisp, sounds harsh to me and my tube amp proclivities. Grab Peter’s TH500 it’s a great price and excellent condition.

Re: NAD Ampeg goodness

Does jumping the channels goose the gain stage and bump up the volume?
