    Finally found a used and decently priced rack tray for my FMR compressors.

    Also took a chance with this cheapo bass that seems to sound surprisingly big:

    Should be here tomorrow. 135 euros is insane if it's as good as it seems.
    I already own several basses but I needed a four strings with a modern type of sound.

    Man, that's great! I just need a decent bass to record some stuff but I did not wanted to spend a lot and in this price range, there are some shit. So good to know this one is good! Added to my Thomann shopping list along with new drumheads set :)

    Well it's here. The finish is a bit rough and the setup not too great as expected but other than that, it's feels pretty solid and sounds very nice despite the crappy factory strings.

    Frets are ok but would deserve a bit more polishing over the edges. The neck is straight, thin and comfortable but the finish is a bit crude as I said. Same for the fret-board.

    EDIT:
    DI (middle position high boost ) Kind of reminds me of my BTB but a bit less sterile.

    Thanks for the details. It's normal to get something a bit rough for this price tho. I ordered the 5-string model today as I need it very soon. Elixir strings will be nice on it :)

    Check out rondomusic. Their basses are quite affordable and usually play/sound nice. Plus they have a great return policy.

    Otherwise just snag a used Ibanez.

    Heard good stuff about the Sonimus products and have been wanting to add some sort of "analog" saturation to my mixes. Figured I'd give it a shot. Been trying out Reelbus and really dig it so that was a no brainer.

    Looks so cute but damn there's one hell of a tone coming out of this tiny bastard.

    Awesome little monitor controller, feels rock solid as well.

    Plus :
    - Cables
    - Paiste Cymbal Cleaner (definitely needed that)
    - Cympad Optimizer cymbal washers (because they're awesome)
