Re: FS: Ashly SC40 preamp $150 (PRICE DROP)

I'll have to have this withdrawn.

Re: Synths?

What's the guitar synth Don Boyette uses on Michael Jackson's Dangerous tour video? It's the live in Bucharest concert. Have a listen to Man in the Mirror in particular. I don't know for sure what Don did, but I remember reading somewhere that another of MJ's bass players actually had to use 4 or 5...

Re: FS: Nordstrand EB Bass preamp

Re: Any Flat Wound Lovers?

I found Chromes too brash or clangy. Had them on Js Ps but was never quite happy. These GHS strings recommended by BSO and their tension is definitely mid way between TI and Chromes. I find TIs over the top in the mid range.

Re: Any Flat Wound Lovers?
