    I also bought Room Sound Jay Maas Jarra Shell Snare and Lavender Acrylic Kick, I should be pretty much covered in the drum sample territory now...:lol:

    Zombass 1, I don't really have much use for midi bass but for 5$ it's not bad and cover my midi bass needs well enough.

    I ordered this LDC mic from ebay today, I don't know if it's any good, but hell I paid 18 euros for it (plus free shipping) so it really doesn't matter, though I'm pretty sure it's more than worth the price.

    I didn't buy, but played a show Saturday night with a band....one dude played a Les Paul -> Framus Cobra -> Orange 2x12 and it sounded fucking awesome. Now I really want a setup like this.

    Been thinking about getting a pair as they seem like a deal and they'll bring my Events that are on my desktop right where I need them to be at ear level. You like em? Do they work well?

    Waiting for the delivery. I'll keep you updated but I can already say that if your monitors are sitting on your desk, you will definitely benefit from them.
    I have monitor stands and foam pads but I'm confident they will still improve the low end on my system.



    Update: Got them...

    Let me tell you the difference is brutal. Now I need to settle with it. Fuck.



    Update 2:

    Yep... Holy fuck.

    put an emg 57 and 66 in but I'm probably going to be putting back the original pickups back in.

    After doing a lot of reading and listening to samples on Youtube etc, I've been wanting to get a set of EMG 57/66 for my Les Paul. I watched Jaymz and Lasse's clips and liked what I heard and the description of active with a bit of a passive vibe sold me. I've been keeping an eye on eBay for a set and one just popped up for £75 less than retail, so made the purchase. Should be here next week. If I don't like them, I should make my money back on them too, so it was a win/win for me :)

    They also look sexy as hell in the brushed finish!

    ^ I really like mine. Been considering swapping them for the Fishmans just for the multiple options but I'm lazy and the cleans sound really, really good on the neck pickup.

    It was a great price. You and Lasse's comments/videos really sold them to me. If they aren't for me, I'll definitely give you a shout. Think these are going to go in my Gibson and the Seymour Duncan's will go in my Orville.

    I hate waiting for stuff to arrive!

    Cab i built about 6 months ago, has mesa boogie V30's in it. Walnut top/bottom with baltic birch sides, back, and baffle. It's the same dimensions as a mesa over-sized straight.

    Thanks!
    these are sorta ballpark estimates.

    $100 Plywood
    $75 walnut
    $100 hardware/pipping/grill cloth material
    $400 for an old mesa cab to gut, (stole the casters and speakers)
    $25 finishing materials

    Iv'e made two of these now, one has V30's from a Line 6 cab and the two sound massively different, Hoping that in a couple months after I move I can get some comparison clips up between the two cabs.
