Can someone tell me what these rigs are? Especially the one on the left and the teeny box on the right :hmm

:thumbup:
The rig on the right is an EA i-Amp doubler with a 12 inch Barefaced cab and a mojo-sonic single 10. I had a line on 2 of them on talkbass years ago and the postage was possible/feasable. At the last minute one of the guys pulled out and sold it locally. So I only got one. Its a 1x10 and is quite deep sounding. The builder was an older retired gent who played in a blues band doing pub gigs. As he was older he couldn't lug heavy gear, so he built his own cabs. It turned into a small side business from there. Unfortunately, around the time I bought the cab the guy had a heart attack and stopped building. So you wont see many around and very few in Australia. The barefaced cab weighs 9kg and the mojosonic 10kg. A nice carry in.
Thanks for the info, that mojosonic size cab would have been perfect for my home use.

At the GTG, while everyone was noodling away, I suggested to someone that at the next one, we encourage a "key of the Hour" protocol where each hour, on the hour, we select a new key and for that hour, all noodling should be in that key.....or you shout everyone lunch!
whadya reckon?

I think that was the quietest one I've been to. I had earplugs in my pocket and didn't feel the need to use them, which is a first!

It's been a while since I studied theory, but yes, I think so.

Overall I think Tim's Berg setup was my fav. That's a new cab, from the one you had 2 years ago isn't it?
Sorry Greg, I haven’t checked in for a few days. Yes, it’s an HD210 cab I bought 2nd hand through the forum. I’ve still got the CN212 but thought I’d bring the 210 along for comparison. I wanted to compare it with Maxgroover’s REF210 but alas didn’t get around to it.

Amen to that, Matt ;-)
Although I thought everyone was pretty well behaved on the day. Really enjoyed it.

The basses in the front of the gear are stacked 5 bags times 2.
I really appreciate you leaving the red Manta with me, Michael. Glad I was able to help lighten your load on the way home ;-)

Seriously though, I haven’t been able to put it down. The balance and feel is incredible, and the workmanship is of course immaculate. It’s giving me a good idea of what I’d like to specify in a commission. Kicking myself I didn’t try the Q and the smaller body shape for comparison.

Cheers, Tim

Hi Tim,

No worries. I hope it sounds OK, too ;) .

Look, this obviously wasn't the last time I come to Sydney (there seems to be better "appreciation" of what I do than locally, at least for the time being) so there'll be an opportunity to check out the others in more depth before making any sort of decision. Considering your current crop though I'd say that a "Manta" is going to be right down your alley (without pre-judging anything).

Enjoy, and catch up soon.

Regards,
Michael

Are you saying that our appreciation is sub-standard to the guys north of the border? As a man of science I hope you can back that up with solid data. ;)

Will reply to to PM later, need to sort out options.

Well, I could tell you how many of my builds are doing duty in Sydney versus Melbourne. It’s actually the same number but not much longer once Matt’s builds are done (with additional expressions of interest). I think I’m on pretty solid ground with my statement ;) .

Regards,
Michael
