  1. Kindness has it. I believe I wired the 2 pickups together, then one to the jack with one of my jazzes. I wired it back "proper" when I sold the bass. I also did this to a P-bass, but in between the pickup and the output I soldered in a mini-toggle switch for an on/off. Very cool IMO.
  2. I've decided to sell again and have revised my pricing.
  3. 12AX7 tube pre-amp. 600W at 8 ohms, 800W at 4 ohms, 600W at 2 ohms. Fantastic amp that has been in a rack case since the day I bought it. I do not need near this much amp with my band so I'm downsizing. $590(CAD) plus shipping. About $550 or so in U.S. funds.
  4. :cop: :cop: :cop: :cop: :cop: Dammit only ten images allowed ::mad smiley face here:: Dan Guess that makes you the wiener! That sure was pointless silliness in the middle of a night shift.
  5.

I would sacrifie good tone for the lighter stuff to achieve good sound with the heavy songs. My guitar is a Fender Strat..(mex) and I haven't changed the pickups...Just standard.... ...and your bass player is a {censored}in' God I bet!

  7. Originally posted by Kermit_the_Frog I had the same problem when i bought my PODXT Live. I NEVER created my own tones. I always used the presets. Once I got it all set up *3 months* I will never go back! 3 months of utter hell for the rest of the band while you fiddle trying to get your sound and volumes set. It's enough to make a bass player sell all his gear and take some time off.
  8. I paid between $800-$850 for it. I can't remember and lost the receipt. Traded in my Hartke 410XL on it plus some cash. I've been playing for over 20 years. I've used 15" cabs, 410's and a combination of the two. I was going to add a 2x10 to my 4x10 Hartke to get slightly warmer, less hi-fi sound. I changed my mind after playing the 8x8. It is a big cab though. Over 100 lbs. On flat ground, it's a breeze to manouever with the tilt-back design. I have figured out how to load in and out of the back seat of my car without too much trouble, but you really could use some help with stairs. If it were stolen or lost, I would definitely buy another one. For that matter, if my amp was stable at 2 ohms, I'd buy another one and run 2 of them! I also really like the fact that I was supporting a Canadian company. I would not hesitate (and I have) to recommend this cabinet to other bass players. If you can handle the weight of a big cab (still smaller and lighter than a 8x10)and are looking for a cab with lots of low-end and tight mids and highs in the same cab, then look at these. The price is easy to take as well.
  9. That rig works well for you Hal? That's pretty close to what he's looking at. POD XT Live into a power amp into one of his Marshall 410's, and selling the other 410 for an Avatar 212HSpecial. Maybe sell both his Marshall cabs and go into 1 Avatar 412.
  10. I love them. I have ever since Moving Pictures came out and I heard "Spirit of Radio" on the radio. I have every album - my faves would be Signals, Permanent Waves and Grace Under Pressure.
  11. Post this over in the bass forum as well. I'm sure there are some users of this over there.
  12. Originally posted by KirkHammett1 I've seen people just hook directly to the PA with one of those live. Definately not as rockin as having a half stack behind you though. A fair number of guys in the bass forum do that - hell, even Geddy got rid of his amps and just goes straight to the board. Then again, we (bass players) tend to find our tone and stay with it and don't really require effects throughout tunes. In the bars we play, we generally use stage sound and a small PA for vocals and kick drum, so he will have a stack behind him still. I just don't see the need for him to invest in a new amp that will effectively be only supplying power for his POD.
  13. Originally posted by mister kyo i'd tell him to try the poweramp setup extensively before selling his marshall He's going to borrow a QSC RMX850 tomorrow off a friend to try it out. I have no experience with those kind of effects, but it looks to me like it will take awhile to figure out the POD completely to be able to use it as his preamp and effects unit. It should theretically be able to function as that though correct?
  14. My guitarist just bought a Pod XT Live. He doesn't like his amp and wants to get a new amp and cab. Since the XT Live will model pretty much anything, I told him to sell his Marshall and just buy a power amp since the Pod is essentially a preamp. Does anyone in the guitar world on here do this?
  15. Originally posted by The Boogie Man Maybe all he needs is a Les Paul or something with hot Humbuckers. I would love if he had a Les Paul. I don't play guitar for {censored}, but if I did, I would so have a LesPaul!
  16. Thanks. So far as I know he's never played another guitar with that rig. I know he's doen some looking around at shops, but I doubt he has brought his guitar along with him.
  17. Sorry. He plays a Strat. We play classic rock like Zep, Hendrix, Rush, RHCP, RATM etc...
  18. My guitarist is looking for a new amp. He's got an early 80's SS Marshal into 2 410 cabinets. His sound is quite tinny no matter how he adjusts or effects it. He wants to keep the cabs and find a new head. Fairly inexpensive. Does not want tubes (which I suggested), and can't afford better Marshall or Mesa product. He's even leary about tube pre, SS power. Is recent Peavey product any good? Over on the bass forum Peavey seems to be getting a pretty good rep these days. Anything else he should be looking at? Thanks
  19. I had a couple of those in the yard last year. Looks like it was a drainage issue, some of the soil getting washed away under the grass. One of the holes right beside my neighbor's foundation was really deep. Put some downspouts on the eaves, and filled in the holes. Haven't seen these crop up this year.
  20. Overall, I like what this pedal does for my sound. Heard great things about the Sansamp BDDI, which this is basically a copy of for about an 8th of the price. As a DI, it sucks. As an effect emulating a bit of the Ampeg growl, it works great.
