Re: Compressor Pedals?

I don't use a lot of compression... usually only around 2:1 to 5:1 (if we were to quantify it).... It's good to "tighten up" one's tone, but not squash it. I really get what I need from my zoom B3 My carvin amp also has a compressor, but I find it over-the-top and hard to use except for hard limitin...

Re: Rewinding a Stingray Pickup.

I loved this... Great instructional video, and the end result is great. The pickup sounds very much like a classic stingray... (too close to discern a difference)... It reminds me of that Louis Johnson tone... I like how you spent a bit of time explaining the shielding and earthing. That in itself i...

Re: Adding an active sub or a 115 Cab?

Here's what I have to say about bass guitar and frequencies.... One can certainly put a sub in to get a "little" more "depth" and "feel" into the low end, but it will do VERY little for the overall tone and punch of the bass guitar (which is an amazingly broad-spectrum instrument). Unless you're wri...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Germans got too cocky after winning the Confederations cup with their under 23 team and mainly picked them for this World Cup. utter arrogance. Well done South Korea,they really deserved that win. and while we're at it, someone tell their coach Lowe that Beatles haircuts went out of style in 1966 l...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

I'm glad the ref's have turned the World Cup into prison ball. Not much Hollywood now is there? A lot of the falling over like a snowflake from the first round has disappeared once players realised it wasn't going to be paid. Not worth risking a yellow contining doing it. Well done Fifa, well done....

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

if any OzBass members' kids are good at scoring goals, start gearing them up to be ready in four years time, WE NEED STRIKERS. What we need is good attacking midfielders that can run on and cleanup the mess ... Aaron Mooy can do that if Yedinak played a bit more forward and allowed them that space ...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

The diving is appalling. Why can't these multi million dollar players just play the game and not worry about the theatrics. Ruins what could be a decent sport if done right. Maybe making the goals bigger would help, or cut it back to 9 players per side? Most purists of the game are also appalled by...

Sepp Blatter is no longer FIFA President ... the Italian , Antonio Infantino, is.

Yes... indeed a bit of corruption there

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Just because a team is not tested yet does not mean that they are non-achievers Yes, waiting until the elimination stage is a valid approach ... I’m just saying who I think has a good shot... IF they make it through group ... I mean, right now, the best team to this point is actually RUSSIA! 6 pts ....

FIFA World Cup 2018

I couldn't find a discussion thread for this... if there is already, please discard... But at any rate... what are your thoughts so far? (Round 1 Group stage complete and into Round 2) Russia??? really 6 points and a 5 goal GD ??? That's impressive... Last night, Colombia player gets a red 3 minutes...
