    Just jumped into this thread on Part 5, haven't been through the previous threads so if this is a repeat I apologize.

    But here is a link to some lightweight fEARful cabs. The cabs are in the 30-40 lbs range for a very high performance cab.

    Some obvious mistakes that we will fix and then layer on a couple of guitar tracks but I think the base is there.

    Saw Borracho and Nitroseed last night. Both were awesome. You'd think downtown Baltimore on a Friday would have a better turn out but nope. So many good bands here but the scene is so awful =P
     
  10. Hey, I play in the Danish Stoner- southern rock band Barbwire Messiah.
    The voice Coil in my old amp has just crashed, and i'm now looking to buy a new amp, more precisely i'm looking at a Marshall JCM 800 Bass series - 1992 100 watt amp, with a 410 Cabinet. It's for sale to, what i consider, a damn good price for an all tube amp.
    But i'm in doubt if it can provide enough volume for my use.
    Any of you stoners who uses Marshall amps? or can give me some amp-guidance here?

    Black Cobra / The Sword / Kyuss Lives show last night.

    It was one of those shows that is going to fuel my practice/jam fire for a very long time.

    I was particularly surprised by JD's vocal in The Sword. I thought they often sounded a little weak in live recordings I'd heard, but he brought it hard last night. He sounded awesome. It was awesome to see how much fun they had playing together.

    Also, my new fantasy jam partner is Brant Bjork. Holy crap that guy can drum. You could practically see plumes of Death Valley dust roll off his kit every time he hit a tom.
     
  12. If you're not looking for clean and don't mind running the amp hard then you should be fine, especially if you cut some low end frequencies.

    I'm confused. Was your amp a combo?

    Is Reeder the touring bassist now that Nick is in prison? If so they would totally be worth seeing just to watch Reeder.

    I wish I couldve gone to that. Its kinda sad how many KILLER bands play to very small crowds.. even in the city.. I was one of maybe 18 people when I saw Weedeater last time... I really think that people are getting too lazy to go see good live bands anymore, and just watch it on Youtube.
     

  18. This is awesome! vocals aren't my cup of tea but I can listen past them...
     
  19. You should check out Hex Cabs. The dudes from Eagle Twin build them.

    Also, I've played my Jack Casady in a fairly low volume environment with fuzz on and the feedback is pretty crazy. I imagine gig level would just be a full on WOOOOOOOO between notes...but maybe you want that = P

    Kyuss was pretty great. If you like their records, you'll enjoy the show.

    Nick was playng bass. Scott Reeder was doing international dates, as Nick is out on bail and can't leave the country. He's a monster player, but I'm a bit torn on admiring his playing, given his history of domestic abuse.

    All in all, I thought it was a great nit of music. The audience was really into both The Sword and Kyuss.
