  1. Past hour
  2. You know what, you've got me questioning myself now. 7.4v or 8.4v. I'm away from home at the moment (where battery is) - so can't check... but will charge up the thing and give it another bash and pay more attention to what it actually read so I can tell you properly! Given it's Li-Poly I would guess it should be 7.4v and I've inadvertently posted a most unhelpful piece of information.
  3. Some possibles from Facebook you could try. https://www.facebook.com/groups/depsuk/ https://www.facebook.com/LastMinuteMusiciansUK/?eid=ARALP0vZ0qyz5DwdsT9u1jD-YLG5nzSTmrrRFrEXn7FNFavoTts59XCty9pR7VQKs4lXL1ObHldGyd08 https://www.facebook.com/groups/musiciansavailableuk/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/1459261904358095/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/1464698153822774/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/292495814176877/
  4. I also have the Krivo pickup as well and I find it great if you want a more natural double bass sound, especially with the Prestos. For my own purposes, I prefer to sound pretty much like a big fretless bass guitar, with a smidge of overdrive, into my Ashdown ABM and I find the Armstrong pickups better in that scenario so have the Krivo as a backup. Sorry about the BC being out of stock now, I ordered 2 sets just in case because I do slightly prefer the steel strings to the Presto (mainly because that is what I have been used to and I get that slightly longer sustain, without the real brightness that I got from Spirocores) So, if you were interested, you would be more than welcome to have a loan of both Prestos and Krivo to see if it would suit?

    Why?

    I actually wanted to learn how to do the solos you hear in every rock song from the period but, in my ignorance (I was very young), thought the instrument playing them was called a bass. My guitar teacher proceeded to teach me bass and I soon realised I'd been VERY wrong. I loved the new REAL bass parts I was learning though and kept with it. Don't regret it in the slightest....
  6. Love the burst finish on the front and the wood on the back.
  7. I have an Eminence - that part should just be a standard 6.35mm (1/4") mono socket like this: https://cpc.farnell.com/neutrik/nj3fc6c/neutrik-1-4-jack-socket/dp/CN02846 This particular model (Neutrik) is much fatter than the original fitting so the black plastic clips that attach the barrel to the brass plate probably won't fit, but if you measure the diameter of the one you have, you should be able to find a direct replacement easily enough.
  8. A beautiful bass. Congratulations to you, fabulous work.
  9. Yes I have seen them but I had too much drop outs with Line 6 in the past so I want to stay away from them. And there is no tuner on it.
  10. I like Tai Shan and Superconductor. Superconductor has a really great middle eight with that soaring synth line. In fact, I think 'Presto' as a whole has some real bangers on it, and like RTB, is perhaps a bit overlooked as it's not as cohesive as 'Power Windows' or 'Hold Your Fire'. I do find the lyrics in Tai Shan to be a bit hokey, but their focus on mysticism and a 'romantic orient' simply reflects the western view of Asia at the time. Look at 'The Chinese Way' for another song that would probably be written differently today. My favourite Rush album is, on alternating days, either 'Power Windows' or 'Hold Your Fire'. Both are front to back quality, just utterly exceptional in every regard. Rush had really honed their craft then, bookend their best songs with the best instrument tones and perfect production.
  11. Try gelbass.com, that is the website for the company that builds them. I didn't see that part listed but it may be available if you contact them or they may suggest alternatives. Good luck, I have a Yamaha SLB 200 but I played an Emminence at the 2018 Double Bass Bash and it was great, excellent feel and sound.
  12. I didn't realise The Grateful Dead were terrorist sympathisers.
  13. oh wow, my perfect sr5 finish! I had one exactly like this years ago and should never have sold it!! interest in trades for something with just the 4 strings maybe?
  14. Been listening to Illuminations by Alice Coltrane and Carlos Santana. Fantastic stuff. Must acquire this record.
  15. Beautiful, I love Shuker basses #colourmetempted

  23. Delano (Germany) might make you a set with radius magnets.
  24. I've had half a dozen 9v rechargeables on the go for several years and haven't had a failure yet. They're all decent brands, i.e. made in Japan and not China.
  25. That’s interesting, though the post mentions two pickups, Kent Armstrong Hot Vintage and Dimarzio Area P -which one is the one you tried?
  26. Ah, I was hoping for a reply of “Get your trousers on son, you’re nicked”. in all seriousness it does look a plan though, I went there a few years back and managed to spend some good time checking all sorts of goodies out.
