Re: Big Stingray changes by Ernie Ball

I really love the look and sound of these. Seem like worthy changes. One day I think I would like to own one.

Total side-note, that first video fills me with a bit of joy that my $$ Bart active equipped Epi Ripper comes somewhat close to the MM sound.

Re: Heavier Strings for Eb Standard tuning?

50-115 is about right for standard C. Justin Chancellor uses standard gauge with a 110 for the dropped D. I recommend DR Lo-Riders standard gauge for possible Eb standard. These are Rotosound-ish in sound, less abrasive than Rotos, and higher tension than DR Hi-Beams because they are hex-core. I use...

Re: NPD - sort of

Um, I guess by the conversation it is a compressor of sorts. Can't see the photos. Do you have a link to the kit online or?

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

Sorry, blame Bartolini! Post corrected... Sheesh, I thought I was obsessed with grammatical correctness. Now I know there exist electrical engineers obsessed with capacitance measurement unit correctness... :neener: :crazy: :lol:

Re: Unicorn (4005) sighting

There are those who would trade their spouse for such a thing. There is no way I would trade my spouse even for a real unicorn, besides what use would I have for a Rhinocerous?

Tone cap/wiring options - need more dub!

Hopefully no need for a diagram here. I plan on drawing one up soon. I followed the official Bartolini diagrams. I have installed an older active Bartolini P/J set in my fretless (thanks to Irvine here for the swap). It is working perfectly and sounds amazing, functions as I expect it to so I am sur...

Re: Wanted Future impact pedal or Akai

It plays nicely with bass, active or passive. I have just got my fretless back in action so I am keen to see what the FI does with that. Expecting some greatness. Most of the time I am not running bass through it, I am using a MIDI keyboard or using it for arps and sequences. I could have achieved t...

Re: Left field question - chorus pedals and feedback a-la Magic Dirt

I think that captures some of it. Hard to tell if he has the chorus speed up there but at the end of that feedback it starts the warble. This one also gives an idea at the start and also other parts in the song.
