Here are a couple more shots of my revitalized system. One with the lights on and another in the dark but with the components turned on. Pretty cool effect, huh?

Also, Superfly...I have your merchandise. See the third picture. You never specified how many 3M Blackwatch C-100 metal tapes you wanted, so I set aside 2 boxes (20 tapes total) for you. I have more if you want. Contact me offline if you still want them.

Let's see....I told you that I'd sell the reels for $20 each (try finding those ANYWHERE for that price).....X2=$40

2 boxes of 3M Blackwatch Type IV C-100...$34.90 X2=69.80

shipping...I figure should be about $10.

$119.80

Email me offline so we can make the arrangements.

Speaking of reel tape, have you tried Quantegy #407 or #457?

Those are also superb tapes. The 407 sounds pretty much neck and neck to the Maxell XLI, but the 457 is a higher bias tape. As such, you can push the needles further into the red. The only down side is because of the higher bias, the higher end won't be as sharp or crisp unless you can re-bias your deck (which is one of the reasons why I like the Teac X-2000R....it has an adjustable bias).

If you want.....I can spool a "pancake" of #407 or #457 onto an empty (I have empty Maxell reels) and attach leaders if you want (The pancakes do not have leaders on them. I have red, blue, yellow, green, white, translucent red, and translucent blue) and ship that in place of an XLI for no extra.

Thanks Matt.
I just send you an email.


The Teac 3340 S doesn't have a bias adjustment.
It only has a switch for high bias and regular.
Perhaps you can explain more about how that works.

Shit, that has to be the biggest LED VU (or peak, whatever it is) meter I've ever seen. Who needs PAR cans with meters like that! What's with the bits of digital crap in there though? I'm disappointed!

Superfly, now there's a nice pair! (Pair of meters that is!) Here are the meters I'm more used to looking at. They may not be in sexy blue but at least there's a lot of 'em!

Quoting NoUFO (Reply 10):

Ah the good old SSL. I've never even seen one! The studio boys get to play with those toys, while us live guys get stuck with Midas Heritage's, Audient Aztecs and Series Five's. Could be worse though...I could be a player as well...Ah shit!

Anyway, nice as these big flash expensive gadgets are, in terms of sexiness nothing (apart from the obvious) beats this:

Fender basses (can't identify the one in the middle)? I beg to differ, though I don't play bass. I have always thought Warwick Thumb and Warwick Streamer basses sound extremely well, especially the Thumb. So if you need another bass, maybe a fretless ... Big grin

And if you want value for money (heck, who doesn't) check out Sandberg basses.
Oh, and the Musicman Bongo sounds better than it looks.

Quoting NoUFO (Reply 12):

NoUFO, when I said nothing beats this in terms of sexiness I meant guitars in general, not just Fenders! By the way, the Jazz 5 string on the left is fretless  Smile

I agree, Warwick basses do sound fantastic, but as a player I've never really liked the feel of them. I tend not to get on with 35 inch scale basses (although my backup fretted 5 string is a 35" Spectre which has a very Warwick-type feel), and I definately agree with you that the Bongo bass sounds better than it looks!

The middle bass is a G&L L2500. Leo Fender formed G&L with George Fullerton (hence the name 'G&L') after leaving Musicman (in 1979 I think, but I could be wrong on that). It's basically the ultimate Fender bass, like a second generation Stingray almost (in fact I had a five string Stingray but couldn't get the range of tones I needed, so I went down the G&L road). It's my No.1 bass and has an incredible range of tones. I can go from playing down by the bridge with Jaco-type mid to a heavy reggae sound literaly in the flick of a switch and a change of right hand position, which I need with the band I currently play for.

Anyway, I'm a sound engineer today and tomorrow, and a bass player again on Sunday, so I'd better stop wasting time on here and get to my gig. Next week I'm back to my usual job of resident company alcoholic Smile.

Would you ever consider an Alembic or Rickenbacker?

Quoting Superfly (Reply 14):

Superfly, I've tried Rickenbackers and never got on with them, mainly because of that 'Ricky' sound. It doesn't really fit in with the kind of music I play, although I've played a few 4001's and 4003's and in terms of playability they've been awesome. It's just that tonally they're not for me. I've heard plenty of people get amazing sounds out of them.

As for Alembic, I've heard a few but never played one, so I can't really make a fair comment on them, although they're not the type of bass I generally go for. As you've no doubt already gathered, I'm well into my Fenders!
