Got the tubescreamer in this afternoon. Wow. It’s perfect, these should be issued with any P bass purchase. They bring that growl out like nothing else I’ve tinkered with. I switched back to my BDDI from the Battalion. The EHX w/ the drive on was great for playing stuff like Idles, but I switched to playing Blur and the BDDI has such a nice tone with the tube dialed back. Guess this means one of my next buys is going to be the SGT-DI. Buying a real board and reverb pedal first.

Decided to free myself of cables, certainly in the rehearsal environment, as I was getting brassed off with stepping on them!

Seem to work pretty well!

Good call on the 5.8 GHz. I cheaped out and went with the 2.4 GHz version, which is the same freq as the wireless units I have for IEM. I find that I can only reliably use one or the other of them at a time. That’s fine for playing through the amp, but defeats the purpose a bit if I want to practice with headphones.

Yes, I went for these as I thought there would be less interference, specifically with our guitarist…

For, what is a pretty cheep solution, I’m impressed! That said, I’ve only used them in my home office to date. We have band practice next Monday evening, so that will be the first real test…

After a long deliberation to make this the least GAS possible I’m really happy to share that I got the Boss Katana 110 Bass and I’m really happy with it. It has a ton of options I could rant on forever but the first thing I can say is that it sounds so much better than the old amp and my two basses sound better! It even made me think that some of the inexpensive basses I have had and sold would have… but that’s the past. The effects sound good to me and for my purpose and budget more than enough. I got a good deal on it, too. That’s all my gear. I just wanted to share!
Cheers!

Hi! I just wanted to share that I got the Katana 110B! I’m really happy with it! So far I’ve been becoming familiar with the ton of options (and it’s not hard) before creating my own “sets”. The control over the computer is cool but turning knobs and pushing buttons is fun. Thank you again!

Don’t forget to sign up on Roland’s site. They have a web page called Bose Tone Exchange where you can download different tones others have created. It is a good place to start to create your own tones. Congrats on your new purchase.

I need some help. I can’t decide between buying a Holeyboard (pedalboard), and buying an SGT-DI. Sweetwater’s got the SGT on sale atm, but I’ve already got a Battalion and BDDI. I don’t have a pedalboard. That’s on sale too. The SGT is going to be a big upgrade, and actually affect my sound.
