Re: ONE BIG THANK YOU

thats just aweful, and a terrible shame . Hospitals and clinics ARE a haven for those terrible bugs and I know a disturbing number of people that have had bad unneccessary complications from their visits there ..

Re: FT: MXR M87 COMP & MXR BASS OCTAVE DELUXE

fair enough ..
I coluldnt seem to get the sound I wanted without it being boosted a bit ,
but maybe I wasnt twiddling right .
I thought it was a shame , because mxr are usually pretty good.
My 76 Styingray has a lot of gain ,but it was probably operator error.

Re: FT: MXR M87 COMP & MXR BASS OCTAVE DELUXE

-RE MXR Bass octave Deluxe - Just be aware , if you're looking at one of these . . you can get great sounds, but it has NO output gain control, so if the sound you like happens to alter your level at all ( usually does) , you'll need something else to adjust that . . . unless they have changed them ...

Bazzbass, I hadn't realised untill now, that our locations are listed at the side, so I wasnt sure what the other end of the journey was. Thankfully we have people like yourself to point out our shortcomings when we make a mistake.

Re: Stingray 3 band eq mods.

This isnt exactly on topic, but I thought it worth mentioning here. The guys that do the great Stingray replica 2 band preamp, Mojotone have been making a '78 pickup replica for a while (as have Aero and Nordstrand etc) but they are the first to make the exact same pickup in a 5 string. No one else ...
