Ampeg Micro VR + Ampeg 210AV x 2

Never easy parting with good gear but this is genuinely going to waste. Been sat idle for years and only ever used for some bedroom jamming and one studio session. For you consideration is my Micro VR rig I purchased a few years ago on a whim. Pretty much still brand new but it is now lowest in the ...

Re: Noise gate / supressor pedal?

ZOMBIE THREAD REVIVAL I decided to try a noise gate pedal for use with my Ampeg Baby upright bass - it is awesome!!! I had a second pickup added behind the board to pick up the 'click' from my weedwacker strings as I play mostly rockabilly style. While the sound is terrific, the hum from both the ne...

Re: Playing ampless in small venues

I have tried it with in-ear monitors for my upright and while it was ok, it wasn't a patch on using an amp.

Best bet really is an amp - something you can hear, feel and control, even if its just for monitoring on stage

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

Thanks Marty, I'm not entirely sure of the brand. it is obviously a Baby -type bass. Cant find any names or markings anywhere, inside or out. I got it from a chap in Wellington a few years ago. It was refinished in white when he got it. I have since added a second pickup (on the back of the fretboar...

Re: Solid state heads - GK or Ampeg? (or SWR?)

My experiences with GK would put me off them, but they do sound good (had two die on me during a tour). I have owned heaps of great solid state amps over the years, most recently the Mesa M-Pulse 600. Would have another in a heartbeat. There are no bad Mesa Bass amps or cabs!!! The Fender 400 Pro wa...
