NAD! Another Happy BGD Customer!

Post by CrayZee_Bass » 06 Oct 2018, 22:02

Hi all,

took delivery of a new setup this week from George at Bass Gear Direct.
I have been thinking of a modular setup such as this for quite some time. Also curious about the Genzler heads as I am a big fan of the old Genz Benz STL900 and keen to see how they compare.
Hopefully I'll get to take both my hew and old setups into the practice room soon for a showdown.

Always happy dealing with George, a very knowledgeable and down to earth fella who deals in some great bass gear that you won't find anywhere else in Australia.
I'm happy as a pig in poop!
Thanks George.

I just gave this bad boy a spin at the jam room and boy, it's loud for its size!
The 12s sound great, quite different from 10s ( i run a 210 4ohm Epi UL2 or a Berg AE410) but loving the difference.
The magellan is very musical and thumps out a wide range of tones. Plays with dirt quite nicely too.
Cant wait for rehearsals with 2 diff bands this week!

So I finally got to take the new rig to a rehearsal with The Disgruntled Taxpayers.

Really enjoyed the new sound!
I put it through its paces with clean, mild OD, OD/Fuzz, OD/Dist, Xerograph filter and oct up and down.
Performed like a champion.
Sweet low mids and mids with plenty of warmth, growl and heft, while still keeping definition and sweet harmonic articulation.
We are an original band and have written through a huge variety of styles, from ska to punk to metal/rock/psych-core to country. the perfect way to break in a new rig :)
I had an absolute ball playing this rig through our ever-eclectic repertoire.

Thanks once again to George for making this happen!

I'll have to come have a listen if you're playing a gig somewhere. Or, maybe we should catch up and compare rigs?
