    Hello everybody,

    i'm new here on this great bass site, im a semi professional doubler bassplayer from the Netherlands. Are there bassplayers who are using the TC450 or 750 bassamp for uprightbass? i own the TC RH750 with the 2x10" vdKley and EBS Neo 1x12" cabinet i'm verg happy with! I played for 10 year Eden speakers maybay louder and lower but the bass didn't cut throw the mix. Sorry for my English...

    best regards,

    Lookup GrowlerBox here. He runs an RH450 with his. I'd have one too with exception of this lousy economy. I have an NS-4T and have several basses I use but mostly my Pedulla PentaBuzz. The presets are ideal for doubling!

    dude dont get one. they sound horrible for upright. at very low volumes its nice, but the louder it gets the boxier and unnatural sounding it becomes. i have the rh450 and i have tweaked with the pre for 2 months and i have yet to get a sound i like....

    Thanks for the advice, i think you're right! I play uprightbass and want a NS to save some space next to drummer....
    Just bring the upright and play live don't you think?

    its all good. i think it sounds good with electric... a little boomy in my opinion, but with acoustic bass it blows... it doesnt get loud at all and retain the sound of your bass.

    I had both the RH450 and RH750. Did not like either for electric or EUB.

    Euphonic Audio, Walter Woods, or Acoustic Image. Can't go wrong with either of these.

    Hello,
    you gave me advice not to buy the NS wave EUB what do you think about the Landscape standard avc EUB?($600,-used) is it worth it to buy? or is a real uprightbass always a winner in sound and handle?

    I have a nice uprightbass (Victor Pawlovski) and a old Fender jazzbass or is it better to spent money for a good pickup? (Realist) a like a fretless also

    thanks for your advice

    Hi Fred welcome on TB,

    Never heard of the landscape, can't advise you there. Have a look at the NS NXT and NS WAV mega threads on this forum. They come up second hand quite often in the Netherlands and they're a reasonably cheap option.

    Yes a real upright will always beat a EUB in sound and playability IMHO. With a good EUB the difference can be small, and a EUB has its own uses and practicalities.

    Did you check out the Dutchies thread/club on TB? You're welcome to join!

    I'm gonna throw GK in the mix. Most of my gigs I use a GK MB150s. When I am doing festivals and I have backline to choose I go for the GK 800RB my favorite 4x10 on the list. They are not the most hifi I suppose I always get a sound I like without much fuss.

    I have an AI and EA Wizzy 12M. It mostly collects dust except during summer festival season when backline isn't available.
     
  18. Hi Fred,

    Since you're dutch maybe the Hevos amps are something to consider.
    It's a dutch brand. I've got one and love it. Both electric and double bass sound really nice. They are not cheap but I think they are worth every euro.

    I play with a real loud drummer and 9 other musicians and I always get away with it volume wise. Sound wise they just amplifie. really natural and woody although it also depends on wich pick-up you use.

    Sorry about my English to maar ik vind het niet netjes om in het Nederlands te typen. Dan snapt niemand meer wat je zegt.

    The new GK MB heads are really nice for doubling. Not expensive either. I would also agree with the above that the TC heads aren't ideal for Double Bass. Too much compression, although I really like them for electric.
