:lol: I forgot to mention that. Some rooms are a PITA to play in, constantly fighting against feedback or to just get a decent tone.

Keep a pedal tuner or similar mute pedal near you. Easy way to stop it dead, if your hands are busy with something else, or you want to walk over towards the amp for something.

Has the bass got its own mute switch in the preamp?

Hi !

I've found two solution in order to use my Alien Basse during a show (with a little sound :p )

* Set the Bass Gain Knob at a really low level, and set the amp really loud.

* Use a self-made Feedback stop with the right shape (I use a laser cutter on chipboard wood)

The second solution is just better... Bass knob can be set at top level !

Get hold of a block of memory foam, squash it down and shove it in the hole. It will expand inside the bass and block the hole. Then when you want to remove it, just squash it up and pull it out. It works pretty well, but most of the feedback comes from the strings self exciting, so possibly playing around with an equaliser to cut the right frequency might also do it.
