Re: Does anyone use a separate / external EQ pedal?

My 2 cents as your fellow Rumble 500 combo worshiper ,whether this is a viable option for you instead of an external EQ I don't know. First up the Rumbles inbuilt DI never interested me to start with, in fact all the amps I've ever owned are tarred with that same brush. As you use your own PA like u...

Re: Downsizing my rig - anyone done it?

Rumble 500 v3 Combo. We do similar stuff to you guys and the guys in my band cant believe how good it is. Rarely use my Genz rig these days. Hook up one of the matching lightweight ext cabs and get even more from it. I thought about an ext cab also but I just don't need it,the Rumble competes easily...

Re: My Latest Obsession and Reason

One ride and I was hooked and obsessed immediately ! But I had to tear it apart as the battery wasnt charging and this limits and decent distance rides unless I carried a "jump pack" . Just like the first ride,I did much procrastinating over pulling it apart ! New jack I forgot to mention "kaching k...

Re: My Latest Obsession and Reason

I don't think it will ever be "done" cjj to be honest. As a mechanic these things are pretty "agricultural" in design, even for 1986. :) First ride...took me an hour or so of procrastinating to venture out on a bike I knew nothing about with lots of issues. This missus was laughing much at my muckin...

Re: My Latest Obsession and Reason

Oh,John...yep still with Naked Gun. We played the Cabana on Fri night with Butt Scratch. Not too many people but we had a load of fun and finally got kicked out by the Guv around 2.30am ha ha. Back to the Harley. These are some of the faults and issues I had to deal with. Lucky I'm a mechanic by day...

My Latest Obsession and Reason

Sadly on the 22nd of January my older brother passed away at the age of 54 with a heart condition. He was also the only surviving member of my birth family,aside from myself, as both my parents have also passed away. I am now an orphan. He was a great guy, and a fantastic brother who has always been...

Re: Downsizing my rig - anyone done it?

I was in the Rock Shop yesterday grabbing some patch cables and saw one of those new Fender Rumble combos. $1000 retail for a 2x10 combo, 500 watts with an extension cab (so probably around 350 by itself) and under 17kgs. Didn't have time to have a play but gave it a quick lift and immediately want...
