Re: Stingray 3 band clank

I've been using the zero mod thumbrests too. On the SR5 it allows me to get my fingers up in front of the fretboard side of the pickup. I've been surprised how much nicer the tone is up there from where one traditionally might play on the stingray

Re: Can a faulty lead "Scream"? EDIT- no it can't. Preamp Problem.

This sounds very much like what happened to my Musicman stingray. .very simple cause/solution in the end. http://www.ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=21955 I just read through that thread and yes, it sounds like the same problem. Changing the battery clip is pretty easy, so I'll give that a go. ...

Re: Can a faulty lead "Scream"?

Ok it's not the cable after all. It did it again during sound check for the gig. I swapped to the spare bass and no problems since. It's the bass! Ozrider, so you reckon preamp? Yup, that's what it sounds like from my experience, especially it was so sudden, not like you'd hear when you were gettin...

Re: Can a faulty lead "Scream"?

You'd think that after so many years and so many gigs that I would have seen it all right? Nope, I had a strange experience last night. We were rehearsing for a gig tonight, it was going very well. Then all of a sudden, the bass amp starts screaming mid song. It was loud enough to make the whole ba...

Re: Quincy Jones tells us what he really thinks

I've never really sat down and analysed the Beatles' music. To me its highly listenable pop music even today. Does it really have to be any more than that? In any case, it's not always about the formidable musician. Sometimes I just think the guy who can hold down a beat or a bassline and get the cr...

Re: Stingray 3 band eq mods.

Another issue is that speakers have really changed in the last 25 years. Neos especially, usually have a large resonant peak of they're own around that 1.5-2.5Khz mark as well. Bass guitar speakers didn't have this back when the MM 3-band was devised. That is interesting, so what does this resonant...

Nice work, thanks for sharing! And thanks for making it look so un-scary.
I agree, thanks for showing how totally doable this is. I need to bookmark this thread in my favourites somewhere :thumbup:

Re: FT Stingray 4H White

I might try some EB flats then, makes sense to me they would sound good with their main bass? Also to answer other questions it’s a 2014ish (can’t find the pic of the neck pocket stamp right now) made in the US of A ‘ray. I have a lot of sizzle in my SR5 with the ceramic pickup. I've also owned a t...

Re: Clean Bass Preamp recommendations

I thought I would update this. I finally got around to playing with my settings on the B3 with my gear and found it was really that I needed some straightfwd eq'ing instead of amp patches. So I'm using the eq patch on the B3 and I'm moving in the right direction. How do you find the B3? Are the loo...
