Re: Show us your pedals

Yeah the Tech 21 Chorus is pretty sweet.

I notice the Wounded Paw AttacK Goat on your board as well. I was so close to getting one but went with their Battering Ram (Attack Goat + fuzz) instead because of the included fuzz section. Great OD's though!!!

Re: Show us your pedals

Yeah just upgraded to the Pedaltrain Pro a couple of weeks ago as I ran out of room. Haha Yes, I have two wireless units for two basses with the pink A/B switch (made by Peper's Pedals in Dunedin) to toggle between them. At the other end is the VT Bass Deluxe which I use as a two channel Preamp, wit...

Re: Show us your pedals

You've come a long way baby...

Been a few years since I posted my last version of the main rig. Has changed a bit over the years.

Re: Noise gate / supressor pedal?

ZOMBIE THREAD REVIVAL I decided to try a noise gate pedal for use with my Ampeg Baby upright bass - it is awesome!!! I had a second pickup added behind the board to pick up the 'click' from my weedwacker strings as I play mostly rockabilly style. While the sound is terrific, the hum from both the ne...

Re: Playing ampless in small venues

I have tried it with in-ear monitors for my upright and while it was ok, it wasn't a patch on using an amp.

Best bet really is an amp - something you can hear, feel and control, even if its just for monitoring on stage

Re: BASS / AMP PICTURE THREAD :: Get your cameras ready!

Thanks Marty, I'm not entirely sure of the brand. it is obviously a Baby -type bass. Cant find any names or markings anywhere, inside or out. I got it from a chap in Wellington a few years ago. It was refinished in white when he got it. I have since added a second pickup (on the back of the fretboar...

Re: Solid state heads - GK or Ampeg? (or SWR?)

My experiences with GK would put me off them, but they do sound good (had two die on me during a tour). I have owned heaps of great solid state amps over the years, most recently the Mesa M-Pulse 600. Would have another in a heartbeat. There are no bad Mesa Bass amps or cabs!!! The Fender 400 Pro wa...

Re: Downsizing my rig - anyone done it?

I really like those new Rumble 500's!!! Tried one a few months ago and gave it serious thought. But in the end decided to that two Ampeg B100R's were enough combo-wise. I have gone from small combos to big rigs, to monster big rigs, to halfstacks and back. Lightweight seems to be the main selling po...
