Re: Thoughts on a new rig

Combos are great too, including the Ampeg combos available at the Rockshop. I have a Trace Elliot quad combo from the 90s which is outstanding, and it has an extension speaker output which i had put an 18 inch sub on for extra boom / volume. However i have noticed there are not too many combos desig...

Re: Thoughts on a new rig

Hey there, welcome to the forum. It depends on how loud you need to be. There are a pair of Ampeg SVT 210AVs on Trademe at the moment which could provide you with options (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1330193340) + you would still need to find an amp. I have found that the light w...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Rob posted a pic of his new / second hand 4 string Wal fretless to the Wal FB page - it looks great. That 6 string that he traded it for also looks wonderful too - i think it was a prototype 6 String Wal and was 36 inch scale if i remember correctly? Anyways enjoy your up and coming lessons with Rob...

Re: Noise gate / supressor pedal?

Noisegates are great. I have one on my Rane DC24 Compressor and it gets rid of those annoying hissing sounds coming from my Jazz bass. I do agree you need to find the sweet spot with them because too much of it can ruin your bass tone.

Re: Car Accident - should I claim?

Depends on if there is any other damage to the amp - i would get a tech look over it to see if there is any other damage and then decide if it is worth it. If it were me and the amp only had a small and almost un-noticeable dent and no other damage / problems, i wouldn't take the matter to the insur...

Re: Playing ampless in small venues

It seems that amp-less is becoming more common, including with big bands too. I subscribe to Premier Guitar (Youtube channel) and watch their rig rundowns with international bands / musicians and you see them using Kempers, Fractal Axe effects, in-ear monitors and no amps or cabs when they tour - se...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Rob Burns in Otago has one. I had one in the early 90s, but I didn't like it. I bought it new from the RS. I couldn't get the "sound" so I went back to a Fender Jazz. Much better. Yeah i had talked to Rob about Wal basses - he offered me to come over and try out / play his set of Wal basses but was...

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

My latest purchase, the Warwick Hellborg bass preamp. I was always curious to try out one of these units, mainly because they are so expensive to buy brand new. I managed to come across one second hand and got it at a good price so i bought it - since the preamp is meant to be inspired by a channel ...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Yep, I posted on the auction to the same effect. White pup covers were available around that time, but not all had them. Fender also issued the Elite and Special lines with white pup covers. It never really took off. I can remember buying a tobacco burst precision around then with black pups but th...
