    Good luck acquiring a Hamer FB IV ( that's what they're really called. They're rare, and getting very expensive.

    Very rare for sure. Super lucky to have two FBIV's.

    Remember those Kustom cabs with three 15s?

  8. I like it. It breaks the Gen Pop rules about speaker sizes. It sounds good to my ear, but to each their own. Response seems to be very flat and it carries a low B string easily.

    Like all Traynor gear, it is built to survive touring, so it isn't light. It is 85lbs, so similar in weight to a well built 410. It has about the same cone surface area (106%) of a 410. I think the target market is someone who was going to buy a 210 and a 115 - put into 1 convenient (?) package at about 75% of the weight of the two cabinet solution. They seem to sell at about the same rate as 410s at L&M.
  9. Those are beautiful basses. I’ve been looking into Hamer and I like their basses, now if I could get my hands on one of their birds I would be happy!
  10. Wasn't McCartney using those at some point?

    I never played through one, but I liked the thought of the neighbour's reactions...
  11. Ahem.
  12. What are the green strings?
  13. Yes, but it was for the amusement of a van passing motorcycles on the Nurbergring rather than providing any useful information. I'm sure that few people would actually try to drive any van like that.

    Plus Sabine Schmitz is easy on the eyes.

  14. If you look at the 7ender website, there is very little information on the Rumble cabinets. Given the paucity of information, I think MSRP of a new unit is the place to start a comparison. And making assumptions about the consequent comparable value of the BOM is a reasonable approach because there is no other data to compare. Price is not the same as quality, but there is usually a good correlation.
  15. The EMG’s bring the THUNDER! The stock pups were not too bad but these with 70-140 Heavy Bass Boomers are what I wanted for the music I was doing.

  16. Light jazz? Acoustic trio? Folk?

    I almost got one of these but I’m sticking with my Hartke 410 for now and I’ll probably add a 115 to it later. Sorry but if I got off subject here.
  18. Thrash Metal Lol! I’m not in that band anymore though so I’m thinking of trying out some La Bella Deep Talkin’ Bass tapewounds just for the hell of it.

  19. I thought thrash metal ended when Metallica cut their hair....

  20. I’ve seen one of those they look like they would melt faces for sure.
