Re: Amp for Country?

Before you shell out for a new Amp, maybe invest in a service for the Traynor. The OP valves could be a bit tired, or it could just need a good overall service; especially if it's one of the first gen 200's, as the auto bias in them was a bit prone to issues. I've played a lot of Country (both trad ...

Re: Short scale bass ideas?

Another vote for the Mustang; good way to get into Short scales while still having a reasonably familiar tone & feel. Personally I love hollowbody Shorts with flatwounds (Jerry Jones, Hofner, Dano, ect), but if you've mainly been playing conventional solid Basses it'll be a fair departure from what ...

WTB/WTT: Onboard Preamp 5 Knob

I'm after a 5 Knob onboard preamp; actually I'm after two of them!... 1. An EMG Preamp, or something else that matches the output of active EMG pickups (35-DC) 2. A Preamp to suit passive (SD Basslines) pickups. I'm in Melbourne; eastern suburbs. Can pay $$$, or can offer a trade/swap with any of th...

Re: Pedals for trade or sale.

The Hookers Green sounds good. https://youtu.be/nHTk_xikJqc It is a great pedal. :thumbup: It's pretty much a Blueberry, albeit it with a touch more gain. There's three versions of the Blueberry; the original BFJ (which is pretty much unobtainium these days), the Bearfoot, and this one. All have su...

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

When Eden first moved production to China, there were a few initial teething problems. Also some time prior to going to China, Eden shifted camp from Montrose to Illinois; during that period a few of the models suffered some design & manufacturing hiccups (although the WT-550 wasn't one of them). So...

Re: Record with flats, gig with rounds?

After trying flats for the first time, I put Chromes on my MIA P and my Jazz bass. Sound great at home thru my pedals and into my Yammy monitors. Live they sounded OK but not crisp enough to really carry the room. I took my El Cheapo SX Jazz with Roto rounds to our last gig at the Exeter Sat night ...
