I can't wait to do the same, just gotta save up to buy the matching cab!
Hey wait! Yours has black covers?
I didn’t think the Stage 800 came with silver covers? I’ve only ever seen it in black.
Hey, Dook! I know you’re just messing with Th0mmy, but you got me confused enough to look up your 210 arrival pic and then your Stage grille reclothing pic, too. I, too, never heard of a stock silver grille Stage or Studio. Sorry to bust your con, but I'm watching Monk on TV and he always rubs off in me. I hadda post this to make the voices in my head stop. Aaaauuuugh!
ps: Lovely Bass VI & Jag!!!
Haha, I was wondering if I was being messed with!
Yeah, that's Dookie. He's a real kidder! But he knows his Stage stuff. He's a real credit to The Club and we're glad to have him here.
Never heard how he got that name, though. Not sure I want to.
That's actually about as close to ideal as you could expect. Not overly slack, no tension at all, nice
@ColmBass, I copied your [edited] Rumble Club post here to hopefully get some experts' responses. I don't know that much about the Stage/Studio implementation of compression to answer your question and my googling skilz have failed me, so far. But, I will keep trying, at least until we get a reasonable answer here. Stay tuned ... ...
Attention: Rumble Club Wiki Edit Alert!
Thank you, @CallMeAl, for starting your V3 Rumble Reliability Data thread. It has now been linked in the Rumble Club Threads section of the Rumble Club Wiki! This is a very interesting, if unscientific, thread that perhaps reveals more about human nature than the actual topic espoused.
Thanks for this, Al. Today's posts brought back to my attention.
I am newbie when it comes to amp, cabs and combos so I can use some beginner help here... for me, its simple, I have the 800, and am looking for the 210 cab based on all advice here and previous posts.. My question is about the Speakon cable...12g or 14g? Does it matter? Is shorter better? (Sam Ash, v GC or Fender Branded)...Cable length needed is maybe 2' at best. Any brands to avoid? Anything else to know about "stacking" the 800 and 210? Recommended road cases to keep an eye out for? TIA
Make sure the cable is assembled using real Neutrik Speakon connectors. Avoid the ones from Monoprice. 14AWG is fine. A bit longer is better than a bit short.
A foot long over a foot short ANYDAY!!!!
How do you know if the cable is using real Neutrik Speakon Connectors? Specs say "
Rapco Horizon Commercial Series 14AWG Speaker Cable (1/4" to Speakon) Horizon's most popular speaker cable. Using bare copper stranded, twisted pair conductors each individually jacketed with an overall round jacket added for durability, this commercial grade speaker cable will stand the test of time. Commercial Grade
Wrong cable, you want Speakon at both ends.
Rapco Horizon doesn’t claim to use authentic Neutrik connectors so I guess they don’t. Cheap Speakon have a reputation for failure and getting stuck in the equipment.
I’d look to Hosa or ProCo, who make a point of using authentic Neutrik connectors.
You need a 3ft cable at minimum. My 3ft cable just barely fits with a few inches to spare.
What’s wrong with the monoprice cable? That’s what I bought, a 3ft 12ga speakon and it seems to work fine.
If you search here and on other forums, you will find a number of threads where the Monoprice Speakon connector became lodged in the equipment and wouldn't come out. Others have noted that they fail in other ways as well. They may be cheap, but I'm not willing to risk damage or disassembly of my equipment.
I wish I had seen that before I bought my cable. I’m not going to try and remove it to test whether it gets stuck. It works and is already in there so I’m just going to leave it now.
Was in the HAVE TO HAVE IT TODAY mood bc the 210 cab is just sit-in there! Returned from the dreaded "GC" with a 5' Live Wire Elite Speakon Cable. TY @abarson from saving me from a complete cluster of a day!!!
