Ain't they the ones with a SS pre amp mated to an all tube power section? @Slapfest "reliable. ..that's not something I'd often say about a tube amp. .. " I always find these comments strange. . I and many others I know of. .. have used all tube amps all our lives and In my case I've had I think on...

Re: I desperately need help with technique and don't know where to begin

Seconding maxgroovers excellent advice, I would also recommend you record yourself. The key to efficient practice is to go straight in to the places you're making mistakes, and work to correct those mistakes specifically. Couldn't agree more with that. I also agree that 1 hour is plenty per day , a...

Re: Ampless?

I have used my qsc k12 to do this. Any powered monitor with 2 inputs is great for it. Send from your Pedal board into one input, the foldback send to the other input. You can then control your volume thru the wedge independently of the desk. I quite like this concept. Especially for those who also ...

Re: Music Man amps

yes, I have played through an HD130 many times. . A mate has one in his collection . . Its a good, clean valve amp , not over-powered, from memory, (could be enough, just depends how loud your band is, I guess) , but reliable, as well (not often something I'd say about a valve amp.) . . I dont recal...

Re: Vintage JBL 15" $100

Hey Slapfest, apologies, up until now I didn't know the speaker model. I just found the receipt from the Speaker Hospital - it is a k140. Hope that helps, cheers! Hey, not a worry. A K140 - If I had the cash, i'd be all over that. They were a great bass speaker. I carted a pair of them around in a ...

Re: is there even a PJ set that works?

You can make any P/J set work with active mixing. But if you want to stay passive, or at least mix passively before a preamp, I'd strongly recommend trying what I've done with my 80's JB4. The J is the original Dimarzio - hot, mid-rangey, adjustable pole pieces. The P is underwound alnico 5. A typi...

Its good to see people are still thinking on trying to improve or accomodate different styles and sounds outside of the us...

I wonder if you could simply use a leather hole-punch, and small discs of fridge magnet material to raise a pole piece... hmmm.... I must try that out...
Hey, great idea . . . Have you tried it out yet?

Re: Passive PJ pickups wanted

probably should also mention - I have a set of as new EMG PJs . . . which, I think, (I could be wrong) are an active system (with preamp), but still passive pickups? So I think they qualify as well, but kinda depends on what you think of the EMG sound . Anyway , thought I should mention that as well.

"Maybe offer one at 40Hz and another at 80Hz? Then do something similar for mid and treble frequencies."

I have a spare bass that has a neck made by Warmouth. The bass had a "slight" issue when I bought it , in that the fingerboard was no longer attached for about 1/3 of its length. I removed and reglued it, but I dd notice the support rods that warmouth put in their "Super Bass" construction. These ar...
