Notice the dumb way I have to use a 'Y' cable to run 2 channels in the front of this amp into one because there is only 1 jack on the back of each cabinet...I can't loop cab-cab-amp!! I tried using the 'Y' splitter cable in the rear cabinet but it doesn't work that way??


I have an Earth P.A. It dates to somewhere around 1970. It's SS.

there are some Rich's that aren't pointy :lol:
if that Moser was done in nice woods, all the angles would be amazing. perhaps less evil, though. supposed to have great electronics.

The Arachnid Ultra is maple neck through mahogany body wings. She has an ebony fretboard with custom MOP bullet hole inlays, and 12th fret signature (mine). The "M" logo in the headstock is abalone. There is also an ebony headstock cap that wound up being painted due to the paint scheme I chose. She is built to my exact specs (right down to the neck dimensions), and is the most amazing instrument I have ever held in my hands. A true handmade piece of functional art! :D 8)

I knew what you meant, just figured I'd give you the specs of mine.

I agree that the figured wood guitars/basses that MCS has built are mind-meltingly beautiful, as you know! :D 8)

It would be interesting to see an Arachnid Ultra in a natural finish using highly figured woods. I have seen an early-80s handmade BC Rich Warlock bass that was finished naturally with birdseye maple body wings, and honestly, the pointy shape didn't really lend itself all that well to having no paint. It's just too aggressive a shape for that, to me anyway.

Cheers!

there are some Alembic customs with severe cutting to accentuate/show the wood off. while I'm not much for pointy, the effect is amazing.

Nice!! I'm guessing a SD Rick replacement pup in the neck, but don't recognise the one in the bridge position? Or the bridge itself for that matter?

The bridge pickup is a DiMarzio X2N-B. The bridge is the stock Ric unit. The pickup is mounted in a custom-fabbed plastic ring that is the same size as the original chrome pickup ring, with the same holes.

This is wny I can sell the VBA.

1968ish Traynor YBA3A Super Custom Special
Garnet Herzog
2 x mid-60s Traynor YT-15 cabs
Fury LS4 bass

One of the cabs is on loan, hopefully permanently. If so, four new Eminence Kappa 15's are going in em (right now they still have the original Marslands). The Marshall money will finance that (hopefully).

Stone me, Cory - that Fury is the strangest looking bass I've seen in a while. Care to post some more detailed pics?

methodofcontrol wrote:anderbass,
how's the V4/hiwatt cab rig sound?
is that a folded horn?
can you give me the dimensions of that hiwatt 1x15?

thanks! i'm looking for inspiration to build a 1x15 for my V4, right now i'm just comparing notes.


Hey, I just noticed your question.
I'm pretty sure my HIWATT originally came with a Fane but it came to me with a 4ohm EV past its prime and in need of a recone. At lower volumes It had a nice full woody tone and was fairly punchy with my V4 and SVT but the wore out speaker got flabby sounding pretty quick at any louder volumes.
I've now pulled the EV and instaled a homemade adaptor doughnut and a 12" Vintage-30 for one of my guitarists to use along with my V4. (this has ended up being an awesome sounding over sized 1x12 for guitar use!)

This cab is 28" wide X 25 tall X 15 deep and is one of the few 1x15's I've ran across that's as wide as my early-70's V4. (I'm not a fan of heads overhanging they're cab)

Image

I hope this isn't confusing and I'm not sure of the corect terminology to use here...
You cant really tell from this pic but the cabs front (speaker panel) is angled upward quite a bit. At the bottom it starts out set back 2-5/8" and angles back to 4-3/4" (both measurements taken from the cabs overall front).

From there the angled Port-shelf, (measured from the inside-top down) has an opening size that starts out at 6-1/4" and angles upward to a final 2-1/4" clearance between both the cabs (inside) top and back panels.


Image

Image

Evidently this cab was made for guitar or bass use.
Image

I've been trying to research the Yellow stripes stenciled on the back and what band might have originally owned my cab. I ran across an amp tech out of Atlanta that told me the Georgia Satellites bassist once played through a pair of 1x15 HIWATT's and a DR103 with these same yellow stripe logo's painted on. He also said the stack he saw had originally came from a fairly successful late-70's/early-80's band in the Boston area but couldn't remember the bands name.

If ya need any more (better) info or pics let me know.
