Re: My Latest Obsession and Reason

So sorry to hear about the loss of your brother... :( Yes, it's a bass forum, and a Harley produces a very nice bass note as far as I'm concerned. So yeah, go ahead and post some pics! Myself, I've finally managed to snag something I've always lusted after, a nice, classic BMW K75S, also from '86...

Re: Shipping Bass From Overseas (USA)

Great info, Bronze! I've read some things on other fora about shipping via USPS and having issues with the size, especially for basses. Did you have to send it by any special method or did you just give the dimensions and have it "work?" Most of the things I've read about are regarding shipping to O...

Re: Shipping Bass From Overseas (USA)

Be aware that once it is in this country you will need a NZ customs client code number - Good info, thanks! As for the client code number, on the NZ Customs site: http://www.customs.govt.nz/incommercial/importprocedures/importprocess/Pages/default.aspx?s=4 It says: A client code is a unique number ...

Shipping Bass From Overseas (USA)

Has anyone here ever shipped a bass from the USA to NZ?

If so, what shipper did you use, DHL, Postal Service, etc.?

Any info/advice on how to handle the GST and other such charges?

Re: My 10 string piccolo slide bass.....

Those RICs are beautiful. Actually, they're stunning! I've got my lap tuned CEGACE with the multibender lifting the top E to F and the top C to C#. The pedal steel is standard E9 with three pedals and three knee levers. I just discovered that with the right combination of pedals and levers I can pl...

Re: Why did the Ampeg cross over the road?

OK, one important point, crossovers such as the Rane gear are "line level" crossovers are are not meant for the levels that come from a power amp. So, running your Speakon outputs to such a crossover would kill it almost instantly. In my case, I do all of the high/low splitting before the power amp....

Re: Why did the Ampeg cross over the road?

I pretty much do exactly that. I use 10's for high/mid and an Ampeg 115 for the lows. I use a Rane AC22B active crossover to do the split. Rane stuff is pretty much pro audio and is gonna cost you a bit more than $200 though. The new model is the AC22S, which looks like it goes for around $520NZ: ht...
