Whatever... Just post it to give people some ideas.
Some no-name 150-watt powerhead, and a bass EQ pedal. Nothing special, i need a preamp, man!
Peavey T-Max head
Sabine RT-1601 tuner
I'm probably gonna ditch the Sabine soon, not happy with the slow tracking when I'm trying to tune. It takes FOREVER for the damn thing to decide what note it is and how far out of tune it is . Thinking about getting a Korg rackmount....
He said, "racks"....hehehehe
I have my hartke 7000 head and a AMP pre-amp. I'm thinking about a tuner and a power bar for rich people.
Demeter VTBP-210 and Crown CE1000
Alembic F1-X Pre
Mackie 1400i Power
Yamaha PB1 Pre (spare)
korg dtr-1 tuner
Yo, Herminator....how you like that Korg DTR-1 tuner? Does it work well with B's??
...hope that arm's getting better every second!
One of my racks holds my SWR SM400 S amp and a BBE 862 Sonic Maximizer. The other's got my Crown Power Base 3 amp,which I currently use to power the P.A.,not for bass.
love the dtr-1, it picks up the b quickly. that was one of my concerns when making my decision on which tuner to buy. i've seen others costing much more money that didn't pick up the b.
the arm feels a little better. it's over the initial intense pain of breaking, or is it the pain killers? either way it sucks. i'm still typing single handed.
I don't have a rack
Quit using one years ago.
SWR bass 750,
and a vent panel
Furman PL-Plus Power Conditioner
Korg DTR-2 Tuner
Samson UHF Synth 32 Wireless
Carvin R1000 head
Green Audio ME-1 Preamp
Behringer Autocom MDX 1000 Compressor
BBE Sonic Maximizer
Green Audio GA-1000 Poweramp
Is Green Audio good stuff? Never heard of it.
Green Audio was a small German company which stopped manufacturing a few years ago (they still operate as a music shop), I guess they tried to break into the low price market and failed.
The ME-1 Preamp was quite sophisticated for its time (introduced around 1990). The ME stands for Martin Engelien, a German session bassist (Klaus Lage, Passport (?))
- dual channel transistor preamp w/ graphic EQ (A) and parametric EQ (chaynnel B), both channels can be combined
- very good FX loop w/ numerous options, e.g. bass-cut
- bi-amping ready
The power amp is just a regular P.A. amp w/ 2 x 500 W RMS @ 4 Ohms
Although the stuff is more than 10 years old, it's still very good.
I got both preamp and poweramp second-hand for a great price (thank god for the retro boom! )
Since it was a small company, I doubt they ever had a distributor in the U.S.
Gard, you probably already know that if you turn the volume and tone on the bass all the way up, most tuners are a lot faster settling in.
A slow tuner can run one up the wall when intonating the instrument.
The best tuner that I've ever used is the now obsolete Conn Strobe. It's a dinosaur but it's one smooth tuner. Wish I still had one.
I agree with you on the Sabine. I've owned a couple of them but was never satisfied with them.
I now use an el cheapo Kwick-Tune and for the money, they can't be beat.
I have two of them and just for curiosity I checked the calibration. Both were dead on and the older one has been dropped, rained on and generally treated roughly.
Same as the Herminator:
They're both bitchen. The Korg picks up the B mo' excellently.
I have a Shure UHF wireless that I could stick in there, but their mounting brackets are really cheesy, so I set it on top of the rack, connected with a couple of cheesy Velcro strips.
By the way, Herm, whadd'ya think the chances are that Dan will break down and start making five-string hollow-bodies. Huh?
Wow Gard.. I have the same thing, except I got my Shure wireless in there too. I have the same problem with the Sabine, by the time it says your "in tune" you've already shot past it and gone sharp. I hate that!!!
