    Going to play my H1 tomorrow morning with our worship band. This bass really fills up the sound - three piece band, piano, bass, and drums, and it sounds absolutely huge. I love this bass!

    Me too. I had a four hour rehearsal today with my jazzy fusion band. Tomorrow, I’m playing for two churchs’ “teen” masses. The FOH engineer loves the H-III. (And I do too!)

    It's here. I like it a lot now that I put different strings on it. Not a flats guy...

    Here's a question for the Supro TB.
    How do you find the Supro Hard case? Great? Poopie? Carrots? Other solutions?
    I am seriously gassing for an H2 mahogany.

    Thanks

    Expensive. :p

    I was considering ordering an Island Series hard case, but after shipping and USD:CAD exchange I was looking at over $200 for just the case. The bass fits into a few of my other hard cases well enough to feel confident taking it to gigs, so I decided not to order one.

    I think I mentioned it previously in this thread, but I was/am pretty disappointed that a $1000 USD instrument didn't even come with a cheap gig bag.
     
  8. Just a short footage by an iPhone, with my new Huntington.

  15. Would one of you clubbers ( or lurkers ) please tell me the proper size hex wrench for the truss rod nut on a Huntington?

    TIA...
     
  16. Nobody?
     
  17. Mine came with two keys, both for the truss and the bridge. But I’m far away now, I will be back at home on august 18th...

  18. Thanks much...

    I have the keys that came with mine as well, I'm just trying to identify the correct size for the truss rod nut...

    3 or 3.5MM, I'm guessing.
     
  19. Be very careful. I found the truss rod nut is exceptionally soft. Like REALLY soft, which resulted in it being stripped. In fact, a well respected luthier here in the U.K. also agreed. Try and see if you can find a softer Allen key, so that will strip before your rod nut does.

    Sorry for being a bit slow to respond to this. I have confirmed with our techs that all Supro guitars and basses use a 4mm hex.

    Best,
    Peter
