    Traben bass guitars... Thoughts?

    Just looking for meat world opinions on these. I'm looking at this un... Array Limited - Traben Basses only in a 5 string. Seems like one of their claims to fame is the size of the bridge and how it affects tone and sustain. Anyone play one of these? What were/are your thoughts? much...

    So I'm looking at modules and triggers...

    Particularly the Alesis DM10 with some triggers. Not that I know anything about this module... just reviews and that Alesis seems to have a pretty good name. I'm looking at live application as well as tracking. I figured I'd leave my kit miked up so I'd still get my hi-hats and cymbals thru...

    Ice chest cooler

    A free ice chest, a free fan, scrap wood I had layin around and $9 for the dryer vent so I could aim the air more towards me. :D The fan pushes fairly decent air at around 45 degrees. With 3 frozen gallon jugs of water, it's supposed to last about 5 hours. Jam practice is gonna be cool. :)

    New kick skins...

    So my family chipped in and got me new skins and I'm having issues with the kick. The batter is the Superkick III and the reso is the Resonator. What I'm wondering is...since both skins have built in muffling type rings, do you think that's messing with my tone? I've tried batter just past...

    So there I was...

    So there I was, quiet as a stringless tele. My stealth on par with the very best of the ninjas. Long blades of grass whisper sweet nothings as I pass slowly by. I steal a glance at the ground and it shows me what I had already suspected. Poop. Fresh poop. I'm on the hunt. I've been here...

    A question about pickups..

    So a friend of mine asked me what it meant, and what the difference was, with split coil pickups and series/parallel pickups. I told him I didn't really know but assume the split coil was basically just splitting a humbucker down to single coil probably by a push/pull knob and the...

    Awesome! Lol!

    so we've got this oscillating fan that blows across the front parts counter and into the lobby. and I have gas. :laughings: I figured out that if you stand behind the fan and let it pull the offending odor...:D , it's much more offensive. The 2 guys that work up front just left. I...

    Another 57 VS 58 question...

    Salutations my fine non-feathered friends. :drunk: Our band uses a couple of 57's, a 58 and a Beta 58 for vocals. I'm finding that the 2 57's are always lower in volume than the regular 58. I can see the Beta being louder but the regular 58 is set to the same trim and fader positions, same EQ...

    guitar cables = hiss ??

    So I've been running my Vox ToneLab SE between my bass and my head (GK if it matters). Lotsa hiss when I crank it. Took the Vox outta the chain...ran straight bass to head....better but still a lot of hiss. Unplugged the bass and just cranked the input gain and the master volume all the way...

    Worth a chuckle...

    So a man and woman were coming up on their 25th wedding anniversary. Husband magnanimously says to the wife, "To celebrate our anniversary, I figured a trip to China would be pretty close to perfect." The wife, flabergasted and excited at the same time says, "Oh that's so wonderful! Imagine...
