RIP to Will Mecum from Karma to Burn.
Fuzz before wah and OD after for me.
For me it's comp > octave > dirt (of all varieties) > filter.
Random question - been listening to lots of Voivod lately. Digging the bass tone. I know it's a Rat, and I know the Blower Box is designed for that tone specifically, but I didn't gel with that box. What's the standard diode in a Rat? Surely I can get that tone with my Iron Pig, right?
LM308 is the desirable Rat op-amp. 1N914 Is the diode used, I believe. I’d try setting the Iron Pig to Si and refine from there.
I'm sure the Iron Pig will get you there. If not, there's always this pedal.
I have no experience with it. I've only seen it mentioned here on Talkbass. There's a thread about the pedal.
Hey y'all. Long time no-see. This thread always gave better recommendations than the rest of TB.
So can y'all recommend some good headphones for practicing?
With babies and moving into an apartment big amps are out for a while, but I still want to actually hear my bass when I'm practicing. If possible I'm looking for closed back-over ear headphones. They can be high-impedance or low, don't give a crap. I'll sort out the amplification later, just want something that doesn't just fart on my ears.
Audio Technica M50 is a solid choice. I've also got a set of Sennheiser HD 380 pro that I like a lot. Both are closed back, over ear, with good bass and easy to drive.
I have the M20X, a cheaper model but I would recommend it if you don't want to spend that much for headphones... Great quality for the price IMO
Ooof, I didn't realize how old these headphones were before I looked. The closed back set I use is a set of ATH-M45 that they apparently stopped making about 10 years ago. I got them on sale, and for the price I paid, they're OK. I wouldn't go looking for another pair if I lost them. Edited to add: they actually sound pretty good, but aren't that comfortable after an hour, the cable is not replaceable. They have held up, though.
Really, the AKG K240 semi-open back headphones I have are lots better than the M45s, and they don't really leak significantly more noise (I can hear outside noises a lot better than with the fully closed M45s, though). I paid about the same amount for them as I did for the M45s, and I would go looking for another pair if I replaced them. They're comfy even after wearing for hours with eyeglasses, and really cheap for a decent set of phones. Warning: they could use a little more bass response, but not much.
Hey all, hope you're well! Lots going on in life, as is custom. Good to see TB is back up
Riff In Peace. Cranking this one today:
I found the sweet spot on the EQ where the Mesa cab gets angry (more lower mids!), and now it sounds awesome
In the end I like it!! Gonna spend the night at my reharsal space, I need to befriend it and do some fine tuning and writing It's been a while since I slept here the last time.
Sounds cool. So do you sleep at all on these occasions?
Of course I do! It's part of the adventure
Yes that's how it sounds: adventurous. I'd like to join you there one night, and I don't mean this in a creepy way.
Oh you would be very welcome
That would be so good to have some company now and then!! I could never bring my drummer to do something like that...
Made some music again. Kind of channeling my love for Earth and all things Dylan Carlsson.
