Re: Anyone playing an American MTD?

^I'm pretty sure that in the US they sell for about $5K (USD) new...
I wouldn't expect to pay less than ~ $5K (AUS) here 2nd-hand.

Im surprised there's no provolone in Gladstone ????
I did find a little provolone a while back in an IGA... I ate it up! It was YUM!

It's no longer there... :cry

Growing up, provolone was a staple Italian cheese for me. Send me provolone, please! :D

Re: Bypassing the preamp on a bass amp?

depending on amps I've used, I will sometimes do this. It comes down to 2 things: 1) Does the amp's preamp colour the sound in a way I don't like or 2) does the amp's preamp offer handy features that I can take advantage of (such as a graphic EQ). My current amp (old Carvin Redline series amp), I re...

Re: Gibson facing bankruptcy

They were being sued over the robotuners for $50m only a week ago - maybe that hastened the timing https://www.musicradar.com/news/tronical-to-sue-gibson-for-dollar50-million This lawsuit is going to fall flat on its face... tronical is upset because Gibson dropped them after going all out in 2015....

Re: the MOVIE REVIEW thread

Went with the family to see "A Wrinkle In Time"...
Kids liked it... some interesting ideas... but overall, not very well done, IMO....

Script was weak, acting was weaker...

Re: Guess this bass....

It's a jazz bass with flats favouring the neck pickup and the tone rolled all the way off through a Fender 300W tube amp.
Double tracked with a DI re-amped through an Ampeg B15 flip top set flat and mixed in with a boost of 6dB and 250Hz.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Welcome Dave, and yes, we are MUCH friendlier than TB. Lots of wise heads on here too, in terms of technique, recording, theory, playing live, luthery, effects building. Don't be afraid to ask for advice :) Good references on random things like politics, cricket, electrical engineering, and ice cre...

Re: Fender Starcaster bass

I love the sound of 2-pickup shorties through a tube amp. I've never heard a Starcaster played before, but if it is anything like the other 30" basses I've heard and played (an Ibanez EB3 copy), it'll sound good

Re: Introduce Yourself

Welcome midlifecrisis Dave! As you have found out, you're never too old to have GAS... And for a "newbie" that setup is a bit beyond "modest", except for the obvious fact that you have had some serious GAS attacks already. Of your gear listed, I'm personally GAS'd by your CIJ PJ "Lyte"... yes! ... W...

Re: Neil Finn to join Fleetwood Mac

I heard this today... They fired Lindsey Buckingham...

Mike Campbell, former Heartbreaker guitarist is also joining up. He's a fantastic talent and will fit in quite well.

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

As an electrical engineer not obsessed with capacitance measurements (so much), I AM obsessed with circuit diagram.
