What I wanted to say was,that he was super helpful,took time to explain and clearly knew his stuff.
First thing he did when I went to collect,was plug it in. Nice touch.

My bass rig set-up:

orange OR120 head and a Warwick 411 Pro cab
Just waiting on a pre-amp from moose and that's it.
What kind of clean headroom do you get out of the OR120? Plenty I'd imagine, right?

The Martin is a DX1AE, Mexican made but plays really well. It's a spruce top on a mahogany body so it sounds "rich" or "dark" I suppose, especially compared to the much brighter spruce on spruce model I was also considering. In the end I went for that one because my mid-80's Ibanez acoustic is bright too and sounds very similar. It's pretty heavy though I can tell you that.

The amp is a '73 I think. It might be giggable but in a band you'd probably have to dime it, and it'd sound very dirty, not a bad thing as such, and put an awful lot through the PA

Nice one, never got to try it but Owen was saying it's a beauty.
It really is, there's a 56 tweed job that was sitting beside it that I initially asked about when I told him what I was looking for and all he said was "you don't want that one," when he said how much he was after for it I understood why. He's got some great stuff in there, took me through a few options that might have suited me.

This is my latest addition due to his generosity. A tad bigger than the champ but I am a bass player.
