Thank you! Yes...I traded a Marshall GV-2 pedal for it on TB and the flanger is worth $40 more than the GV-2. So it's a high end Boss unit. It's really nifty. I wasn't looking for a Flanger at all (I really want a UniVibe clone), but it works really great and sounds very nice.

What's in the box?



Kahler 2400!





Check out the differences in the arms:

(top arm is from the 2400, the bottom arm is from the 2410 on my Kelly)



I'm trading the 7410 on my Hamer for this unit. I need to recess the trem on there anyway, so now I can take care of that and get a new trem. If I wanted, I could put gold hardware on it, starting with the bridge! Laughing

But I don't know if I'll do that...

Man, does that old box bring back memories! That is the exact same package that was from my very first Kahler back in 1984! Wink

In fact, I still have all of the original paperwork that came with it. The manuals, the installation paper, and the warranty card, all still in the original plastic bag!

I also used to own one of those Boss Flangers, and it is a superior unit!

I figured it might! I was surprised at how incredibly elaborate the packaging was, especially compared to how my 7410 came in a ziplock bag.

Yeah I have all of those, too...

Mhmm! It's very nice. I wasn't looking for a flanger, but I figured that I could see how it was and it is not bad. I've gotten some cool sounds out of it. A cool feature is a mode where you can press down to engage the effect, then as soon as you take your foot off, the effect is bypassed. It makes it feel like a Morley wah. So if you want to have a brief filtered phrase, you can just step on and off in one fell swoop, you don't have to jab at it again to turn it off.

I can't wait to get it installed. I'm trading the 7410 on my Blitz for it, so what's more important is getting a new bridge on there. I can't decide what color to get it in, though. If I get a different color trem, I could eventually change the rest of the hardware to match/tailor my plans for it around that color scheme. Or I could just get a chrome one again. But their new smoked chrome sounds interesting...


Oh! But how could I forget? The Fulltone Bass Drive. I got a good deal on it in spite of its physical blemishes. It's the Mosfet version (latest model), but it was such in such an early production run that there weren't any "Bass Drive Mosfet" decals printed yet, just "Bass Drive", so the "Mosfet" part was another sticker that was starting to peel up. Same with the "Mosfet/Standard" switch, there's a peely deal on there, too.

But that just makes it look cool. Cool The sound? Unbelievable! Comp Cut mode is a clean boost, Flat Mids and Vintage are two overdrive circuits. The tone knob is a presence control and the boost knob gives you a huge kick of extra gain. This box has such a great sound, but it's even better at working with your pickups and amp to make perfect OD sounds.

I've been keeping it on Comp Cut mode and never switching it off. With the presence knob dimed, it makes such tasty crunch. And in CC mode, the boost switch can give you a snarly Fuzzface sound.

well let's see, an expensive new old toy that your paying off?

did you buy a crash dummy with the sensors intact that you had converted into a ...doll?

maybe something that has to do with music?
maybe something that has to do with your family?

I could guess all night, but over here it is already 1145pm, so I'll see the answer tomorrow....

no need to start another thread since we all read these anyway, but here's my "hopefully" new toy if I get my way..

so I got my first Kramer/Spector not too long ago, and maybe this one will be next for another "pointy" first and since it is gonna be CHEAP, I'll flip the strings on it and not worry about ruining the value....

What does it look like?

http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=577914



That's the actual bass I'm getting, next to all those Sunns. (drooling smiley)

And it's the deluxe version of what Steve uses in the Run To The Hills music video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqIFxArPdFY). I've quietly wanted one for years, but I haven't found the right deal until now.

It's a '79 Ibanez Roadster. This guy's taken excellent care of it, but the preamp doesn't work. Apparently it's normal for the preamps to quit working. Nothing to do with how well it has been taken care of. But the passive mode still works, as you can read in the TB thread.

I nabbed it just in time, too. There was one other offer before me, but I got it. Waiting for the PayPal payment for my Spector (finally got rid of it!) to go through so I can give this dude what I owe him.

I can't wait to get it. All maple neck, P/J pickups, Ibanez on the headstock (and what a cool looking headstock). It's the predecessor of the Roadstar. What's cool about these basses is how unique they are, especially after all these years. Apart from being waaaay ahead of their time, Ibanez basses are just good. And cheap. And with these basses, it's just a game of "take the coolest feature off of all of these basses and scramble them into one". Gibson neck, G&L-like tone circuit, DiMarzio pickups, Alembic-style body etc etc all mashed into one bass.

Oh yeah I can see that! Hmm...try this--since it looks like the saddles are set as low as they can go, take the neck off, put a business card (or two) in the neck pocket, then put the neck back on. Punch the neck bolts through the business card, so that it all sits flat and so that the business card and the neck screws stay in there while you're putting the neck back on. It'll shim the neck up, bringing the neck closer to the strings, giving you lower action and it's totally reversible. The other option is filing down the saddles on that bridge or buying a new bridge on that has lower clearance. Looks like you might want to raise the pickups a bit, too, if you do that. Then it'd play great!

I like the look of it! I'm a sucker for maple necks, though. I'm trying to see if I can afford to get one of those white blonde Fender '57 RI P basses in the next couple of years (as well as get a good amp...ugh. Shouldn't have blown all my money on all that crappy gear. If you're gonna waste your money, waste it on nice stuff! Laughing). I really yearn to get a one-piece maple necked P. That'd be a dream come true. One of these days. Wink

I love cheap basses....lol

that Series10 I never won it, some bastid outbid me in the last couple minutes.
I actually would like to mod my parts bass body into a double-j, so that project could be on the 2010 wishlist....

many places on the board here I have pics of the stuff I currently have...very boring collection since 11 of them are all one company, but to me, they are all glorious examples of rock basses from the 80's and 90's. We played a benefit show on Saturday night for some dead guy from a band we played with a few times this year and this is the FIRST time in a while I only brought one bass...well I was jinxed as right at the end of the show I lost volume on my preamp ( dead battery ) -- I got pissed and took the battery out of my wireless and just used a cord for the last few songs..

I won't make that mistake again and NOT bring a backup or another battery ...

and PLEASE, no "you should be a passive guy and you won't ever run into that issue"...I already got harassed from the bandmates SmileSmile

( wait till you guys see the pics of me playing while standing on top of my cabinet --hilarious!! )

It's already got a shim. All my basses do cept my EBMM Sterling, I'm too scared to take the neck off LOL

I'm trying to find a new bridge but... I've blown all my money on very cheap gear, and what's evem worse is before I got really big into playing (list X-mas when I got my fretless) I used to spend money a lot on candy, drinks, and a bunch of other stupid ****. I swear I'd be able to buy a Tony Franklin Fretless (closest thing to my dream bass, shown in avatar) with all that money I waisted on that crap and cheap basses I've bought sence then. I bought a Dirnt with Qp's for $250 (I love the bass so much tho) and this project bass. The project bass has been a huge waste of money so far, unless it is the best bass I've ever played, I spent $70 on it (it already coming with rusty Qp's) and it's been a month or so and I only have most of the paint stripped. I'm scared Crying or Very sad


And it's pretty nice bass, high action is good for tapping! Very Happy

Is it possible to shim it more? How thick is the shim that's in there?

Yeah, I feel ya, dude. Live and learn. Better you learn that lesson now than in 5, 10, or more years. Some people never truly learn the value of a dollar.

Take your time. Projects take time and money and both with come soon enough. My Hamer's been sitting bridgeless for nigh on half a year, but that's given me time to think about the wiring, drill some holes, put the new nut on, etc.

Yeah. I feel bad about this project, yet excited. I wanna have it be beast bass but I fear... "What if it sucks?" I will have spent a lot of money on it and have crap. I also want a fretless neck or something, I'm really afraid cause I pulled out the last 4 frets and I pulled out some rosewood while I was doing it and I then hammered the frets back in. I don't want to get it refretted cause that could be pricey but at the same time the body pocket is flat so most necks won't fit into it. It is really bugging me.


If anybody knows what to do... plz pm me or something!

Fretless and a trem? Cool! Is there some kind of hurry? Apart from being anxious to have it done, that is. If there isn't any rush to get it done, bide your time and see what your options are. If there isn't some kind of deadline to keep, take your time so that it turns out exactly how you want it to.

Have you looked for places online where you could get a neck to fit the neck pocket of your bass? There might be a company that could manufacture a neck with a square heel that'll fit your bass. Or, with a little careful work, is it possible that you could reshape the neck pocket to fit a more standard neck heel size?

hey T-Gunn, I have been bantering the idea of a trem on my tbird for a l.o.n.g. time now, and I STILL don't have one on it yet.
I know it will work, I know it will fit, I know where to buy them, BUT I am always saying no since I have no idea if it will ruin the value of it or make it worth more.

( the tbird I'm talking about is a Jackson and pretty rare )

Yeah. I feel bad about this project, yet excited. I wanna have it be beast bass but I fear... "What if it sucks?" I will have spent a lot of money on it and have crap. I also want a fretless neck or something, I'm really afraid cause I pulled out the last 4 frets and I pulled out some rosewood while I was doing it and I then hammered the frets back in. I don't want to get it refretted cause that could be pricey but at the same time the body pocket is flat so most necks won't fit into it. It is really bugging me.


If anybody knows what to do... plz pm me or something!

It's a Squier right? Doesn't it just have a normal Fender neck pocket?

Anyway, it won't sound like crap. Trust me. I think everyone has this reaction to any major purchases or modifications. I feel the same way whenever I get a new pedal, or when I got my Kahler.

If you put in good pickups, it should be fine. Wood doesn't matter nearly as much as people act like it does. Plus, if its a Squier, the body is probably agathis, a cheap (but not horrible) substitute for maple. If it were plywood or something, I might worry a little, but really it will be fine. Maybe it won't sound like a $3000 instrument, but it will sound good. Trust me. I took a Squier P from my school that was so beat up they let me have it for free (they could have bought 3 new ones for the price it would have taken to repair it) and turned it into a pretty good instrument. And the only real improvements were replacing the pickup and the bridge, and the new bridge isn't even that much better.

Well this one is replacing my dirnt which is going to a friend to borrow, so that's why Imma in kinda a rush. I know it will be fine but yet I still worry. Imma afraid of messing up the bridge and bridge pup route. I will get my jazz pup from my local GC's discount bucket, they had a cobalt jazz pup for $40 but it was for a 5er. Finish options have been put in my thread to vote on.


I figured it out. The olympic's neck has the round butt and it should be fender sized pocket so I'll just borrow the neck see how I need to do the neck pocket on the squier and buy a new neck. Which I really don't wanna do cause that cuts into my trem money... ECT ECT
