British Bass Amps

Shops will be wanting to move these amps quickly, but what if it goes wrong? Can you fix it yourself? If so, these amps could be the steal of the century right now. Touting themselves as ‘Classic British Amplification’, Laney have been a player in the UK amp scene for as long as many can remember. The Laney range spans from the ‘Hardcore’ series, featuring 15W practice amp right up to 120W combo amps with all the feature necessary to make a solid gigging amp, through to the ‘Richter’ series of heads, cabs and combos of up to 800W. This equipment is well suited to all styles, the tone being very neutral and versatile- playing a Laney is not like cranking up an SVT, where everyone with any idea about bass will know, but on the other side of the coin, this means that you are not shackled to one particular tone – the perfect workhorse amp for those on a budget. A relatively little known player in the market, German made Hughes and Kettner amps often do not command the respect that I believe they deserve. The BassForce series provides a range of smaller amps for those on a budget or who don’t feel the need to own a stack as big as they are, although a head and cab set up is available. Orange are a founding rock of the British amp scene, having been started back in the 60’s out of the back of a shop in Denmark Street, London. Their amps were immediately revered for the tone that they delivered, and of course, the ‘groovy’ orange Tolex didn’t go amiss in the swinging 60’s Their recent revival is due, in part, to their extensive use by the new wave of guitar bands- Oasis being one of the most visible proponents of their products. Until recently, the range did not contain specific bass amps, rather the design amplifiers meant that they proved to be serviceable alternatives for both guitar bass players. Marshall, although being a manufacturer of both guitar and bass amps, have never seemed to command the same position in the bass amplification market as they do in the 6 string world. The Marshall range begins with the low end BassState equipment- the bass equivalent of their Valve State guitar amps. Now, don’t get me wrong, I play a Marshall JTM60 guitar amp, which I LOVE, but the BassState bass amps just don’t cut it as far as I am concerned. The amps are good, true enough, but others are better. At the end of this very brief overview of manufacturers that we Europeans have at favourable price to the Americans, what is my verdict? Well, I’ve played amps from all of these manufacturers, but the one that got my money was the Ashdown. Choice of the amp many also depend on what bass you personally play.

Iron Age Guitar Accessories

In Greek myth, the Aegis is the shield of protection. The material holds on to dear life at your fingertips. When you grasp it in your hand, you notice an instant relaxation in your grip. You actually feel like you’re holding something of value. The sound at first strike, while not exactly the roar of a dragon, is night & day to your traditional celluloid pick. Here at Iron Age we know a thing or two about crafting a fine pick that not only looks the part, but is functional. It’s a devout process, but doing it solely by hand is the only way to get a true feel of the pick taking shape. The bevel on the Aegis features a sharp drop-off for a quick attack off the strings. If you’re a fan of the jazz3 shape, or especially our “Spearhead” models, you’ll find this a tad familiar. When compared to a traditional-shaped pick, the Aegis is only 2mm more narrow & 1mm longer. It’s a good size, not too big or small, but definitely pointy. This is the first pick in the Iron Age “Imperial Series” which feature aqua-blue glowing accents & majestic pearl arylics. Definitely a special addition to any serious pick collection. It will be weeks before a 2nd batch is ready, although you will likely see a couple additions to the Imperial Series.
