Evil idea afoot (most likely a dud one)

  1. I don't like to be normal ... hence i am building my own, "Zen Bass" combo amp.

    Details are only approx but, 80watts RMS into 8ohms, 200watts into 4ohms, it will have a 3 band EQ with Gain control, a -1 octave switch, and a uber distortion circut(this is too technical for me, so i am buying it pre-made then kinda supercharging it). It will be able to run on a car battery (for busking) or mains power, total cost you ask, AU$120, tone??!! no idea.

    hence the urge to try it out, all the advice i have asked on these products has been that they are perfectly transparent, add in a good tone shaping pre-amp eg Hartke Attack Pedal or Sansamp DI and i 'should' :ninja: be set!
