  1. I’m looking to finally buy a MachineDrum after wanting one when they first came out. I’m more interested in a Mk2, and would ideally pick up a UW, but I’d be willing to look at any versions, especially for the right price. I’ve been trying to trade for one but nothing has yet stuck, and I’m in no rush, as I’m selling some other gear to fund this purchase. I am willing to trade a Nord Modular G1 Keyboard or an Akai MPC2000XL, both with cash to make it happen if that's of interest. If you’ve got one you’re looking to sell and/or trade away, please let me know what version you hav
  2. No hookers or amphetamines? Why even bother? I say have an endless stream of looped porn going on in one section of the house for the entire time. It will then be christened the porn room. Volume should be near maximum, as to welcome the neighbors, even when you aren't home. Food should be something special, an 8-hour slow cooked hunk of meat, or something obviously that you LOVE and you're wife can't stand... tripe or some gross {censored} like that... And splurge, buy farm fresh produce, or go to the best local butcher and buy the most expensive cut you can find. It's all for you so buy a
  3. Where are you located? What finish does it have? I have a Jackson Performer Kelly I'd be willing to trade. I also have a lot of keyboard gear, a Kurzwiel K2000r V3 in particular.
  4. I have a Jackson Performer Series Kelly. No cracks, though a few paint chips, nicks and that sort of thing. The neck is also fine, though the Floyd Rose that's installed really needs help. The guitar is stock, and with some set up works perfectly. I bought it new about 9 years ago. I still have the hard case for it. Never beat up for gigs (played 1 coffee house with it once), I just used it to learn on and still mess around with it here and there. I wasn't looking to really sell it, but it is just sort of laying around in it's case. I'd like to move it for a little more than $150... Maybe

  6. I've got a Kurzweil K2000 V3 rack with 32 mb of ram installed. I'm in the NYC area, if you are interested, drop me a PM and we can negotiate a price.
  7. Hey JAMES, or anyone else who might know, what kind of wiring is involved once you make the cab it's self and pick up the speakers? I want an 8 x 10" but that is not feasible economically, space and portability wise. Figure I could put together a nice 4 x 10" for now, and just expand on it when the time comes. My dad is also a carpenter, and I have some Baltic Birch laying around, I'm just worried about the soldering and wiring, if any...
  8. I'm not too into buying "for now" gear. I really do like the idea of the SVT or similar amp head (though I need to do more homework on them...) so would, say picking up a 2 x15" or a 4 x 10" cab work, perhaps something I could daisy chain with another cab later on? I'm not sure if bass cabs work like that, but that would be ideal, that way I could still have a powerful enough rig that's not so crazy to lug around, but could still expand on it if ever I really needed the power... Also, my band mates have a Behringer 4 x 10" cab... now, I HATE Behringer, but because I don't like the "buy fo
  9. Sounds good. I'll do some homework and research those. There are tons of used shops, new shops, and craig'slist to pick up stuff in NYC so I should be able to find something on the economic side.. Thanks for everyones help and timely responses, you guys probably saved me about a grand and an ass load of headaches...
  10. EZWEAVE, that sounds killer, and I have to admit, I am wetting myself at the thought of an 8 x 10".... I have to bring a rack for my synth stuff, so I will probably also add a rack tuner, and a rack mixer just for the keys and either A/B them or y-cable them, unless for some reason that's just a terrible idea... Any word on specific model numbers for the head and cab? What are you using if you don't mind me asking, cause if your rig can handle a Prodigy then it can take whatever I'd throw at it...
  11. Buy the amp first for the bass, and use an A-B footswitch to change inputs on the fly. The SVT Classic is used by gobs of synth players (the Rentals, super-poppy guys like Motion City Soundtrack... I could rattle off a really long list of smaller CO and west coast indie bands that do the same thing). The other approach would be to do something like get one of those old Peavey PA heads (like this one) that is the same form factor as a bass head and use an 8x10 (whatever you can get for say... $700-800, a used Ampeg would be choice). Anything you can play bass on, you can use as a synth a
  12. It's a funny situation because the band WAS a 2 piece (guitarist/vocalist and a drummer/vocalist) and so to compensate for the lack of instruments he incorporated a 450watt bass amp with a 4 x 10" Cab (one of those behringer heads/cabs, it sounds OK but I know it's going to crap out one day...). But the amp I'm using (or borrowing really) is only a 100watt combo with 1 15", so I have a hard time even cutting through during practice. That can all be worked out with just some level adjusting, we are still working out the kinks. The thing I am really concerned with is the gig situation,
  13. Portability is sort of a criteria here, as I don't have a huge van to lug all of this around. At best a hatchback, or the subway w/ a dolly... So having two large speakers would be killer... The other thing is, so far, we are playing a lot of "newer" venues, the kind that don't splurge on silly things like house PA's, at least nothing that could handle anything more than some vocals, so we have to make the sound ourselves pretty much.
  14. So I've lurked the bass forums a little bit, and I just don't think I'm going to get an answer without asking directly. I'm in a funny situation, because I'm starting to play bass more, and will be getting some gigs with a new band. Thing is, right now I'm playing through a wimpy Fender Rumble, it has neither the power nor the tone I'm looking for. To make matters worse, our guitarist also uses a bass amp with his rig, so we have to manage THAT somehow... And the icing on the cake is I also play keys, though not usually at the same time, at least not yet. Mostly I play a lot of fuzz
