Re: So who here has the Octavius Squeezer?

I got one - unlike some of the TB dolts who've unloaded there's already, I'm in it for the long run. (Firmware updates have already significantly improved performance.) Reviewing it is very difficult, given a proper review means you need to create several unique effects rather than just relying on t...

Re: Essential Albums for all serious Bass players...list em!

Scofield, Uberjam is good, but Up All Night is awesome. Blood Sugar, definitely, but for slap fans you can't go past Mother's Milk. Trivia: BSSM was dedicated to Mike Watt, bassist for the Minutemen and Firehose (see below). Kyuss - ...And The Circus Leaves Town King Crimson - Discipline Firehose - ...

Re: stingray neck and fretboard - very different?

Not sure about the factory finish, but the recommended maintenance procedure involves gun-stock oil. Plenty of good info on the ernie ball site FAQ's.

I much, much prefer this type of finish - all three of my basses have oil-rubbed finishes on the necks.

FS: EV 15" cabinet - Canberra

The EV TL15 sub is an Aussie legend, favoured by bassists and sound engineers alike. This was originally intended for PA systems, but bass players discovered the big bottom end and smooth sound of these fantastic little boxes. This one has had light use as a bass cab in a rehearsal room and was prof...

Re: Best place for electronics components?

When you just gotta have something specific you can't find anywhere else, Farnell is the place to go. Much, much better than RS Components IMO, although you pay a premium at both places for their range and service. WES is also good, but the catalogue is a bit of a pain and their range is getting lon...

Re: Post your Effects setup! (boards, racks, doowhackeys)

My new board is a work in progress, and my old board has been disassembled. :( Should I put the preamp at the start of the chain, or at the end? I'm thinking the start as I want to basically treat it as an onboard preamp, but outboard.. But then if I want to use the D.I. I won't have any of the effe...

Re: Let's see them

I'm dying to hear what your Gecko sounds like with the single Duncan soapbar (active?). Do you have any soundclips? Not as yet, pretty sad considering how long I've had it! I'll bump it up on the "to-do" list! Active ASB-6 and STC-3M3 preamp. Sounds great, but it can be a little noisy when you dial...

Re: Internet Censorship

Just another example of politicians having zero clue about technology and it's importance in today's society. Conroy is just too much of a stubborn SOB to admit he is wrong. The worst filters the gov. tested slowed speeds by up to 86%! And I think 10,000 legal sites inadvertently blocked is miles aw...
