Think I'm gonna add in the HM-2. Not for tis distortion, but for the color mix. Gives it that extra grit I'm after.  So using the amp's gain, then dialling back the color mix a bit on the HM-2 with the distortion turned off. Sounds angry.

Yeah, that would definitely add a bit more bite to it. Kind of similar to the way I use a Tubescreamer.

Fender Jazz bass (w/ flatwounds and retro-fitted 'snap on/off' bass mute) > Boss TU2 > Boss Bass EQ > Ampeg SVT-CL > Ampeg SVT-410HLF

Korg MS10 > Boss TU2 > PA

 

No pics, soz.

 

About to re-acquaint myself with my first ever bass guitar (Fender Precision MIM), by buying off the guy I sold to eight years ago. Welcome home, friend.

Need to have a think about perhaps a 'better' bass EQ pedal (any ideas?), because as nice as my amp is it is actually pretty difficult to get a solid sound out of. Plus an EQ pedal is very useful where I have to use someone else's amp or a house amp/stage amp at festivals etc etc. - can just zero the EQ on the amp and know what EQ works for my guitar through the pedal. ALSO it moulds the DI sound before it hits the PA rather than leaving it to chance with the FOH engineer if we haven't taken our own.

I use a preamp pedal for those purposes. Hartke VXL is what I have and it's great for setups where I just need to plug and play into other amps/DI into PA etc.

I don't have pics but Boak setup is...
Epiphone SG (with Bareknuckle Warpig) into a TU-2, into a Bigshot ABY, which then splits..
A-Goes into a HM-2 distortion pedal then into an Orange OR50
B-Into a Funeral Party distortion pedal into...whatever bass amp is there since I haven't bought my own yet

Also have an RC3 for doing samples, though I haven't fit it into this loop yet.

Just recently started using my Epiphone Rock Bass after some years of problems with it. Lovely old thing to play, nice neck and a good variety of sounds from it. Amp wise, it's still the Ashdown T15  180. Even it's too heavy to lug around at my age.... great amp though.

I've recently added a 535Q, and Deja vibe 2 and a new Magnetic Effect Solar Bender - far superior to the old grey ones.

I just won one of these off of that Ebay.

I don't have a cab for it yet, but was wondering what type of cab would be best for home use.... Probably just going to opt for the matching 2x10 eventually, but any suggestions would be crackin' derts.

I use this for my wee practice head and it does a job. Not going to win any awards, but it packs a punch and is cheap comparatively. Sounds better than a heap of 2x10s I tried in the shop, too.
