Re: Help from Zero!

Hey there. Short answer: take it to a luthier Long answer: I have no idea, take it to a luthier :wink: Sorry! I got all my work done by Ashcustomworks in Auckland, and haven't got the foggiest about the wiring. I definitely suggest a luthier because I am pretty sure that the preamp can be damaged do...

Re: String recommendation

Whoops, didn't read that part. I use DR DDT strings for my low-tuning band.

Re: String recommendation

DR Sunbeams are nice. I have recently imported most of my strings (better selection) - I use La Bella Quarter Rounds on my P bass, and they might be what you're after tonally.

Re: Bass Dilemma - What Would You Do ?

I reckon you should decide on your priority - if it's a covers band, I would be more inclined to go with a democratic view on what 'sounds' better. If it's an originals band, tell them to piss off and then start complaining about their gear :wink: One thing to think about, though, is whether the aud...

Re: Use guitar pedals for bass?

Some work, some do not. You will have to test them to know for sure, and it's not always easy to test at a realistic volume.

The general rule is...no.

I have one bass I don't need that could be traded for it...it would also save anybody from bedroom renovations.

Re: DI vs. Microphone: wisest practical investment?

My biggest problem with earplugs is that I have small ear canals and the E.A.R ones I have now are uncomfortable, and can make my ears hurt a fair bit after a long pracitce. As for gigs, we've released our EP (Icaro) for free/name your price. Got lots of downloads, overseas fans etc., but it's just ...

Re: DI vs. Microphone: wisest practical investment?

Thanks for the thoughts guys. Got a few things to weigh up (particularly some expensive earplugs) so I might have to put up with crappy Behringer for now...but I am scouring TM for a JDI, as I do think it's the way to go. We're having enough trouble getting any gigs, so we probably can't be too choo...
