Re: Teaser - next project

What sort of varnish are you using?

Most varnish I've heard of for guitars is "Conversion Varnish" which is a 2-part polyurethane which must be mixed just before use so doesn't come in spray cans. Good, tough stuff, but you have to have the right equipment.

Re: Looking for speaker suggestions

Welcome to the forum! A rip in the cone shouldn't stop all sound, unless the cone is completely detached from the coil. It will likely sound bad, especially at higher volumes. You should be able to measure the coil with an ohm meter, though it won't necessarily measure out at the ohm rating of the s...

Re: BassPlayer.co.nz looking Funky? (in a bad way)

So many menus were open, it was hard to read your note!

Clearing cache fixed it though!

Re: Rackmounted preamps

Yeah, I'd wonder why as well.
But since you asked, I'm kinda partial to the SansAmp RPM, I've got a couple and use them with a PA amp. I've got a SansAmp RBI too, it's great as well, but I kind of like the sound of the RPM just a bit better...

Re: Cheapest place to buy bass strings?

I used to buy from these online places when I was in the States: http://www.juststrings.com/ http://www.bassstringsonline.com/ Easy to deal with and good prices. 'Course being in NZ, shipping might be an issue. I don't know if they ship directly, but if not you can always use the NZ post's "YouShop"...

Re: Compressor choice

I use the Rane DC-24 too, great unit! Unfortunately, they are no longer made so you have to find one used somewhere such as ebay. Most were made for the US and so will have a 120V transformer. They used to sell a 240V transformer, but ran out of those several years ago. But, you can get transformers...
