    BassGearMag AX8 and Helix comparison

    I mentioned this in a couple other threads, having been working in the background to make this happen. BassGearMag did a comparison (NOT a shootout, "versus", or "which is better") of the AX8 and Helix, you can read it here...

    Three AX8s on stage

    Hard to see all three, but they're there. This is from a recent show for my band Convergence (www.SeattleMetal.net -- redirects to our facebook for now, until I get time to make a proper website). Guitar, Violin, Bass all running through these. We were playing with Need, Seven Kingdoms and...

    Axe-Fx + Wal = pretty dang good match

    So, this found its way into my studio: A Mk 2 5 string Wal. I don't even think I really need to say more to my bass brethern - you know these basses. Anyway, since it's here, and I'm here, and my Axe-Fx II is permanently here racked up for recording while I work on the sound treatment in my...

    Going to be putting my AX8 setup in front of a lot of bassists today

    I host the annual Emerald City Bass Convention (http://ecbasscon.org), and today is the day for it this year. I'll be taking my AX8 setup and putting it in front of anywhere from 75 - 150 bass players specifically. I have a bit of a demo planned to go through in front of everyone, and then...

    It's basically what you expect from me, by now (New Bass Day)

    It's yet another New Bass Day in the house of Selta. This one was about 13 months in the making. I placed my order on 3/2/16, and just picked it up this morning. Dingwall Guitars, Afterburner 1, 6 string (hipshot Xtender on the B string to get to Drop-A) Transgreenburst over flamed maple...

    New Bass Day: Pedulla content

    Pedulla basses should be pretty much self explanatory. Pretty much the epitome of fretless tone. Just received it a few minutes ago. Going to let it really acclimate overnight, then do a setup on it. This is my dream fretless... I'm so damn glad to finally have it.

    Cliff, Matt, et. al - A Serious Offer

    This is mostly directed to @FractalAudio and @Admin M@, but of course, open discussion is always welcome. Line6 is stepping up their game when it comes to bass players. They now have a modeled B7K available, which is *huge*. To say that this is similar to having the Tube Screamer available...

    Pedalboard stolen (AX8 + other stuff)

    Hey everyone, Early monday morning (about 2am), my pedalboard was stolen out of my garage. Thankfully, my neighbor saw it happening and honked the horn on his car, so that was all they got away with. But, it had my small gig rig in it: 1) PedalTrain Novo 32 + Hard case 2) AX8 3) Line6 G30 4)...

    I don't know where else to put this: great, large gig this week

    My main band played with Sonata Artica, Leaves Eyes and Omnium Gatherum on Tuesday night. Omnium was also running two Axe-Fx II's + MFCs, which was cool to run into. We talked gear, but had a little bit of language barrier to try and overcome. Hey, at least we don't have to worry about words...

    Upcoming: ML Sound USA Bass cab pack + presets

    Hellllllo everyone. It's been quite a while since I've really visited here. Lately, I pretty much only come around if someone links me to something and asks me to give input on that. Truth be told, some of the attitude towards bass players (most especially "The table scraps you have is good...

    Two minutes of bass

    Here's a super quick and dirty upload for you to enjoy. These are from last night's rehearsal. Just two minutes of excerpts from a couple of my main band (Convergence) songs: Dingwall Afterburner 1 -> Axe-Fx II (preset forthcoming!) -> DAW Everything else in the clip is just from two mics I...

    Some F# fun - Dingwall + Axe-Fx II + B7K

    Messing around with some F# goodness tonight. It's taking some (read: quite a bit) of adjusting to for really dirty tones. Normally I don't add this much grind/distortion, but I wanted to explore a bit. This is a riff from an old song from my theatrical operatic metal band. 1) 2) 3) 4)...

    Seattle area: Modeler Day / FAS hang out!

    Hey everyone, I don't know how many Seattle area folks we have on this forum. I know a couple of them showed up to the last even of this I hosted back in April. This is something I intend on building and hosting every 2-3 months or so, as long as there is time and interest. The first one was...

    Axe-Fx II / AX8 at a gathering of bass players

    So, yesterday I hosted my annual Pacific NW Bass Player's Get Together. It is an event that I put together to bring the local community together to meet with builders, manufacturers, and other players to try out gear, talk about setups and just generally hang out. Each year, it draws anywhere...

    New (?) source of bass cab IRs

    I just happened to stumble on these a couple of minutes ago: http://www.3sigmaaudio.com/items/category/basscabs/ So, that all sounds fine and dandy, but doesn't tell us a whole lot xD 6 bass cab IRs for $33.60 (if you buy all 6 at once - otherwise, $7 each). 1) Ampeg SVT 8×10 - 2) GK Neo...

    Seattle area: Modeler Day (public event) / FAS hang out

    Hey everyone, I'm starting a new series of events in my area in conjunction with two local studio/rehearsal spaces. These are public events to come chat about modelers and profilers. I always take my Axe-Fx II and my AX8 to these, for people to try. We also have at least one Kemper and usually a...

    Opened for Otep last night... Axe-Fx II / AX8s in use

    I'm not really sure where to post this thread... but I thought this might be a suitable place. Pretty much everyone here knows how amazing these pieces of gear really are. I don't think I need to really gush here like I do on other forums and with people in the local scene about that aspect of...

    Blew the doors off of a gig, thanks to FAS/AX8

    Hey everyone, Well, I'm still reeling from a show my "supergroup" band put on last night. This band - Convergence - has been in the work for about a year and a half. I joined up in late October last year to complete the line up. We had our debut gig at the end of January, and played our second...

    What is a Heavy Metal Opera, anyway?

    (Beware, long post ahead!) Often on here, I'll reference my "Heavy Metal Opera" project, Ara'Kus (aka Flaming Sword Productions). What I haven't done, and have been meaning to do, is go over what this really is. I think it's pretty cool, and something I'm proud of. Right now, we're in a lull...

    I think I have a problem...

    I might have a somewhat serious problem. This particular problem is Dingwall shaped... Dingwall Afterburner I, passive, FD1 pickups. Should be a great compliment to my other Afterburner I, which is active and has a P-tone pickup. I'm debating dropping in a Glockenklang or Noll preamp once...

    Yet Another Dingwall (Afterburner I)

    Well... this is likely the last Dingwall I purchase until the Combustion 6 comes out, or I break down and order one. Regardless, I'm pretty stoked for it It's an Afterburner I, that had the neck pickup changed for the P-Tone, and had a 2 band Glock preamp added in as well. I'm super stoked for...

    New Bass Day: "More of the Same"

    Well, I'm in a pretty happy place. A few months ago, I received my Dingwall Combustion V4 5 string. Pretty much a week after SeeD got his. It quite quickly became my goto bass for my recording and both bands I'm in. I never like going without a backup, and both bands also work in different...

    How interested would you be in wireless Axe-Edit?

    So, this came up in another thread... I can build a setup that will allow you to hook up a Windows-based laptop/desktop/tablet to Axe-Fx units, wirelessly. For example, I do this at many of my gigs... I have a Surface Pro 3 on a stand near where I'm playing. My Axe-Fx is usually dozens of feet...

    Selta's bass presets

    Selta's bass presets & general bass help. Hey everyone, I'm going to be making some efforts here to bring more value to the bass sub-forum. I plan to spend some time with my various basses (and, also, with basses of friends / builders etc. that I personally know and can get access to), and...

    My NBD: Dingwall Combustion 5 V4

    Similar to SeeD, I received my Dingwall today. Instead of hi-jacking his thread any further, I thought I would start my own. I really, really should've picked on up years ago, but hem and hawed too much over it (mostly the price - before Combustions were a "thing"). Now, they just need to...

    From the low end of things (a bass players take on the Axe-Fx 2 + MFC101)

    Good day everyone. Warning, lengthy thread ahead! To start this off, let me give you a little bit of background. I'm likely an atypical user of the FAS Axe-Fx 2 + MFC setup I have. My band is also an atypical project. I am primarily a bass player, and my wife is an operatically trained Soprano...

    Anyone in the Seattle, WA area mind letting have some time on your Axe-Fx 2?

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum - at least, officially. I've been coming here off and on for awhile now. I've been looking to get my hands on an Axe-Fx 2 lately, and really hope to have one in my hands for a huge production my band is putting on. I could ramble on about this, but, to put...
