    I must confess that distortion-grunt is something that immediately identifies a PB to my ear. The effect seems more noticeable on a drag to a lower pitch over several frets. It's a sound that none of...

    Try buying some batteries from a different supplier and see if that makes a difference.

    I hate to reopen an old thread, but Mr. Page played the same Classic SR5 on October 2, 2015 with Ringo.

    I did exactly the same thing for my SR4. Customer Service is the way to go. (I was lucky they let me pick up the part at the factory since I live locally.)

    Have you considered TI Flats? They're very flexible and run in standard gauges. I've got the Jazz Flats on my SR4 and Big Al 4. I've never used their rounds.

    They provide a download link for the...

    A nice SBMM SB14 in the collection

    I just traded a non-MM bass for a Sterling By MusicMan SB14 Sterling single-H. I have to say that this bass is superb; it's very similar to my SR4 (except for the slightly narrower neck and the...

    My 2002 SR4 is basically that color. It's a fairly bright blue (could be pearl blue), maple board, and white guard.

    It originally came with a black pickup cover, which I swapped for a white one.

    I've not seen 9v alkaline batteries leak, but the AA and AAA ones occasionally do so. Once that corrosive liquid reaches a circuit board, it generally damages the device. I've had to replace one or...

    I use the Aguilar TH500 head with one or two DIY 1x12 cabinets. (Previously I had the TC RH450 with a pair of TC112 cabs.)

    The cab was designed in this TalkBass thread:

    Try a different cable.

    There are two types of TS (nominal 1/4") plugs. Switchcraft makes true 0.25 (6.35mm) plugs, whereas Neutrik (e.g their NP2C) are 6.29mm (0.24 inches). That hundredth of an...

    Good question. If a battery goes down to 40% I generally change it. But I'll usually mark it and keep it in my gig bag. Usually I'd only use it in a tuner unless it's an emergency.

    I use a load tester to check batteries. Since a voltmeter will not put any load on a battery, you may see a higher voltage reading than what you'd get under normal operation.

    To the OP: The single-H Stingray is quite responsive to your right-hand position. Vary your plucking position closer to the neck, then try it near the bridge. It's pretty easy to get a different tone...

    Where are your tone controls set? The 2eq folks will be able to suggest a starting point for EQ on the bass. (Mine is 3eq and the two models are different.)

    Can you give a better description of the envelope filter effect you're talking about?

    Is it a level change or a tonal change?

    Have you tried a different string set?

    Ah, I missed that. Yes, on my SR4H the pole pieces extend about 1/32" above the plastic. I recently adjusted both my SR4H and Big Al SSS to factory specs. The SR4 was very close, but I hadn't...

    Actually, señor Trussbroken's measurements are almost the same as the EBMM recommendation. When you depress the string, you remove the string height from the measurement.

    The distance between frets on a 34" scale bass is the same no matter what the brand. (It has to be, otherwise the instrument would not play in tune!) A bass using jumbo fret wire could have a fret...
