Re: Slap bass and volume

I get the opposite, I slap/pop just behind the neck pup on my Jazz, and it gets much louder. I have a soft fingerstyle technique :?

Still sounds terrible either way due to my abysmal slap practicing :lol:

Re: Genz Benz Shuttles

Ah, so it's one of the "transition" amps, so to speak. Thanks for clearing that up :D @Fenderfan: I visited the K'Rd RS before Christmas, and the North Shore RS after X-mas, if that's of any significance. Then again it was two weeks ago, so there shouldn't be any stock gaps. Kinda irritating when th...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Music-instruments/Instruments/Guitar-bass/Bass-amps/auction-348527189.htm Might be interesting. It's pretty much a 400w add-on to your rig, so you wouldn't need to trade up on your head either - good partner for combo amps? Funnily enough I can't find this on the Ashdown site.

Re: Love the Bass!

:D Just came in from our latest jam / practice, the first as a band for the year. Been playing at home over the break, but its bloody great to be back and playing in the band situation again! To be playing hard out full noise(not quite) for a good solid number of hours, its great fun. Just a random...

Re: Genz Benz Shuttles

...it was cause it got pushed off an 8 by 10, off the stage and onto the floor. the transformer did not survive... How do you pull that off? Apart from being totally smashed at three in the morning. By the way, Chris, I'm pretty sure that the Sunn 1200s and the Fender TB-1200 are completely differe...

Re: Genz Benz Shuttles

A lot of the guys on the board have Ashdown gear (considering getting an Ashdown rehearsal amp myself, tbh), and I haven't heard any reliability complaints from them at all.

Their gear is amazing for the price, and some of it looks pretty darn awesome :D

Re: Suitable cab for Jansen Bass 75?

'Tis the devil, indeed. Why can't I get stuff magically pop up when I want it... Jealousy... *muttermuttermutter* :evil:

*Ahem* sorry. Back on topic: BUY EET.

$1799 new at the RS, FYI, but if you want a new one for some unexplainable reason then PM NZRS_Dave.

Re: Genz Benz Shuttles

I was talking about GB's mini-heads in particular, because I quite liked the GBE750.

I noticed that he was talking about Marshall vs Ashdown, so I'm not sure if a GB Shuttle is in the same tone ballpark.

Psst... Music Planet's doing ABM500s for $400 off...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

I'd have to vote zero's Squier Jazz Bass V for that award - the one with pink strings.

I'm 99.9% sure that it's now owned by DubnBass. Either that or there's more than one black Squier Jazz V with pink DR strings and DiMarzio pickups.

+1. Mini-heads are a love-hate thing, just like modelling amps :?
