Re: Jansen Liberator - New (old) Amp Day

Most amps, including Jansen rate amps into 4 ohms, so 153 watts into 8 ohms is healthy. My Crusader 220 Magnum, for example, is rated at 82 watts at 16 ohms, 145 watts into 8 ohms, and 220 watts with 4 ohms (read off the back panel).

Thank You Bill for checking in to BassPlayer.co.nz. It's been a while since we've heard from Harley.

Re: New Amp Day.

Damn. Seemed to be a winner. Would a compressor help? It might just be an Impedance mismatch for the piezo.

Re: BPNZ User Youtube Thread!

Enjoyed that, Steve. Shame about the camera angle, but good footage of your horn player. Nice space given to the drums towards the end of MS.

Re: Jansen RS1420M Preamp

Update. Got a new speaker for the HH from Jansen, a Zomax P1550. This replaces an Eminence OEM POS I bought to fill the hole. TBH it was from a PA cab. I found out last weekend that I could lift the magnet off the frame of the Eminence. Not good. So in goes the Zomax, and already lovin' it. The HH H...

Re: Tuning peg becoming too stiff to turn on a p-bass

Not claiming to know anything, but when I had a P copy (Hondo), it had an open Kluson type which iirc could be dismantled easily and greased. I would not recommend CRC for anything that has been greased previously. It eats grease. Found out the hard way.

Re: Jansen RS1420M Preamp

Just an update, I've just rejoined the Jansen club again. My first proper bass amp was a Jansen Blackface Bassamp 100 (or Bassman 100, can't remember, but it was built on tag strips - no circuit boards iirc) back in the mid '80s. Found out that the special components holding the special smoke in can...

Re: Jansen RS1420M Preamp

Thanks John. I don't think it'll be quite as heavy only having one power amp, but that's no problem. The auction finishes Tuesday night, so here's hoping.

Re: Jansen RS1420M Preamp

Thanks for your input. I've not ever knowingly heard the Jansen preamp, just thought it might have been an overlooked future classic. There is a Jansen Crusader Magnum 220 in my price range that could fit the bill even better.

Jansen RS1420M Preamp

Alas, the preamp of my vintage 1978 HH Electronics combo is crapping out, but the power amp section is still fine. Thinking that it might be time to go for separate components, has anyone out there have any opinions on this Jansen preamp. I fancy the built in compressor/limiter, but is it any good? ...

Re: Female Bass Players

I've actually got a copy of "Pulsing" on a kiwi music compilation album with me at the moment. It's called "It's Bigger Than Both of Us".There could be some of our members on it.

Re: Anybody Have A Jansen Bassman?

The 100 watt tube ones are pretty rare, most of the 100s had solid state power amps. My first proper bass amp was an all tube Jansen Bassamp 100 watter. To me it seemed so powerful with a JBL K140. Traded it in on a Holden Wasp and then went Solid State with my first HH VS Bassamp. Had two of these...
