  8. March Composition Challenge - GET WRITING

    I am in. A bit scrappy in the performance area but there you are. A bit of fun. The opening guitar line is a variation on Teddy Bear's Picnic, which is the extent of the 'inspiration'. https://soundcloud.com/robert-palmer-1/has-anyone-seen-a-glacier-mint-anywhere-near-here
  9. Aw man wish I had the money for this it's an absolute beauty bass and a bargain! Don't suppose you'd consider trades or part trade and money?
  10. If you could only choose one filter pedal

    Sounds pretty cool. How is it at tracking faster lines? I've found passive basses work much better on effects than active ones.
  11. Line 6 Helix.

    glad i'm not the only one who thinks that
  12. . Time to clear some stuff again as I really don't use my fivers !!! So for sale or trade for a 6 stings bass ONLY : STRADI Symphony Bass Fretless 5 ! Fantastic fretless bass from a great Polish luthier named Marek Dąbek who is making some really great sounding basses. This one is #6, a special order from a bass player who wanted to be able to either mix the magnetic Delano pickup with the Stradi piezo coupled to a Fishman preamp on a mono output or split the signal via the same output but with a stereo cable (delivered). Using two inputs on your amp (preamp or console) can turn this bass into the ultimate versatile fretless bass...

Parcel shipped in ultra well protected box will be fully insured with tracking number. Asking price : £1750 GBP or €2000 Euros !!!

Now the real pictures : look at the woods !
  13. Fearless Flyers/ Ace of Aces

    I really enjoyed this. Seriously admire a drummer that be so effective with a kit this simple.
  14. What is the internal measurement from the rack rails to the back lid please?
  15. You'd think that there'd be a market for this...
  16. Jazz

    I love the combination of the conventional body and colour with the modern touches of blade pickups, graphite neck and Hipshot(?) bridge. Very cool bass. Must sound amazing.
  17. Reduced to £400 - includes reeds and strap
  18. another pricedrop £140 Bargain since this is an UNUSED NEW preamp
  19. Great gig, poor turnout

    In October of 1978 I saw Slade play the first night of six in a nightclub chain. Very little advertising and the bouncers were turning away fans who weren't dressed "smart but casual". Slade played to 19 punters in a 1000 capacity venue; the smallest crowd in their professional career. they still talk about it yet. When they came on Noddy Holder said "Jeeesus, did you all come on the same bus?"
  20. SGC Nanyo Bass Collection 5

    This is an absolute steal at £300 - plays and sounds like a much more expensive bass. There is a reason why these have a huge following - they are FANTASTIC VFM!!!. The only reason I nolonger own this is that I don't get on with 5ers. You also need to remember is that Pete is one of the nicest fellas on this forum - a thorough gentleman of the Old School - you can trade with absolute trust and confidence. Pete, GLWTS.
  21. Curbow Int. Xotic petite xt33 7-string fretless

    I had a 4-string fretted Petite, it was a very special bass.
  22. TC Electronics Spectradrive.

    Both statements are correct. Given how boring comps are (...now exactly what ratio should I use live?) it's definitely in the queue behind getting to grips with the following: SA Manta, SA Aftershock, Zoom MS 60B, Alesis SR 18, Markbass Super Synth, a fretless and a 5 string (oh yes a EUB) and about 20 new covers songs to get to function band standard by the start of June....I'll report back in Dec
  23. Happy World Down Syndrome Day 2018! Especially those of us rocking lots of socks!

      Yep, odd socks strategically worn for the day

  24. TC Electronics Spectradrive.

    Here you go boys - these are the threads you should be posting on
  25. Thinking of trying guitar again

    Yeah she's here, also picked up a Blackstar Beam from someone on here - getting some lovely sounds and having fun learning some of my favourite songs. Going to look into online tuition courses or a rough order of what to learn and google how to do those things. So far having a great time with it.
