Re: NPD - sort of

Um, I guess by the conversation it is a compressor of sorts. Can't see the photos. Do you have a link to the kit online or?

Re: Tone cap/wiring options - need more dub!

Sorry, blame Bartolini! Post corrected... Sheesh, I thought I was obsessed with grammatical correctness. Now I know there exist electrical engineers obsessed with capacitance measurement unit correctness... :neener: :crazy: :lol:

Re: Unicorn (4005) sighting

There are those who would trade their spouse for such a thing. There is no way I would trade my spouse even for a real unicorn, besides what use would I have for a Rhinocerous?

Tone cap/wiring options - need more dub!

Hopefully no need for a diagram here. I plan on drawing one up soon. I followed the official Bartolini diagrams. I have installed an older active Bartolini P/J set in my fretless (thanks to Irvine here for the swap). It is working perfectly and sounds amazing, functions as I expect it to so I am sur...

Re: Wanted Future impact pedal or Akai

It plays nicely with bass, active or passive. I have just got my fretless back in action so I am keen to see what the FI does with that. Expecting some greatness. Most of the time I am not running bass through it, I am using a MIDI keyboard or using it for arps and sequences. I could have achieved t...

If I had 8K down the back of the couch then I would no longer have 8K down the back of the couch.

Re: Left field question - chorus pedals and feedback a-la Magic Dirt

I think that captures some of it. Hard to tell if he has the chorus speed up there but at the end of that feedback it starts the warble. This one also gives an idea at the start and also other parts in the song.

Re: WITHDRAWN: Dunlop 105Q, Crossfire Tremolo

Hiya again. I checked and no battery cover for the 105Q. As explained, it isn't really in "good" condition. Works absolutely fine, but I gave it a cleanup and I am not really happy selling it in its condition, sorry!

I am also withdrawing the Crossfire Tremolo.

Hi mate, out of Bendigo VIC. It is the full-size model. It is a bit rough but works fine.

Left field question - chorus pedals and feedback a-la Magic Dirt

I can’t find an answer anywhere to a question I have pondered for years. Why and how do chorus pedals feedback the way they do, warbly and self-oscillatory. Mostly this happens with guitar but I have achieved the same with bass > any old chorus > big muff or TurboRAT and close proximity or high volu...

Re: Blind test: MusicMan StingRay 2004 vs Cort GB75JH

That was a really interesting comparison. I guessed the Cort was first, but when I heard the Ray I was second guessing - could it really be *that* "stingy" - surely any manufacturer could easily over-compensate on the sting factor when emulating. But no, the real thing is stingy. Makes me kinda real...

Re: Pitch shifters... Recommendations???

Yeah same boat. Not a fan of fivers. You might just have to brush up on that bass swap routine.
