  1. You're right Marc, the bass keeper is going to be missed sorely by me... I was trying to find a way of incorporating it into the new set up but alas the only viable option would have been attaching Velcro to my shiny new cab... hell no! I travel all over for various gigs, I will be in the Surrey area next week but unfortunately I'm going down on public transport... this cab is light but not sure if I want to lug it, I'll let you know if anything changes.
  2. PRICE DROP £320 I have just bought a BareFaced cab from a member on here so need to let this great cab go unfortunately to save some space. This is my MarkBass 2x10" cab, it's in overall good condition, the covering is a little fluffy in some areas, the cabinet has mostly been kept in storage for 3-4 years, other than that it has been gigged on around 10-12times with a matching Little Mark head. The cab comes complete with a great quality official MarkBass Padded cover and a MarkBass Bass Keeper which can Velcro to the cab and hold your bass in place, which I found much easier than taking a bulky guitar stand to gigs. These extras alone cost around £75. The cab has a tweeter control on the left side as well as two Speakon/Jack combo inputs on the back, it is the 8ohm version so can be used on its own or with other 8ohm cabs. This thing is light, it's a great cab for a gigging bass player and is an easy one hand carry from the car. I am based in Roath, CF24, Cardiff for collection, any other questions please feel free to get in touch. Here's what MarkBass say about the 102P IMPEDENCE 8 or 4 ohms SPEAKER SIZE 2x10 in. BASS PORT rear TWEETER piezo POWER HANDLING 400W RMS (AES Standard) CROSSOVER FREQUENCY 3.5 kHz FREQUENCY RESPONSE 45 Hz to 18 kHz SENSITIVITY 101 dB SPL WEIGHT 27.78 lbs / 12.6 Kg WIDTH 23.23 in. / 59 cm HEIGHT 12.60 in. / 32 cm DEPTH 17.13 in. / 43.5 cm Pictures: [URL=http://s199.photobucket.com/user/sonoffrog/media/IMG_9025.jpg.html][IMG]http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa17/sonoffrog/IMG_9025.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://s199.photobucket.com/user/sonoffrog/media/IMG_9030.jpg.html][IMG]http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa17/sonoffrog/IMG_9030.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://s199.photobucket.com/user/sonoffrog/media/IMG_9026.jpg.html][IMG]http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa17/sonoffrog/IMG_9026.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://s199.photobucket.com/user/sonoffrog/media/IMG_9029.jpg.html][IMG]http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa17/sonoffrog/IMG_9029.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://s199.photobucket.com/user/sonoffrog/media/IMG_9027.jpg.html][IMG]http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa17/sonoffrog/IMG_9027.jpg[/IMG][/URL] PRICE DROP £320

  7. [quote name='icastle' timestamp='1320152457' post='1422951'] No need to be sorry - asking questions when you don't know the answer is smart . All the earths need to join up. All the pot casings need to be joined together, the wire from the bridge needs to join a pot case as does the earth wire from the jack socket. [/quote] Great, thanks for the help, and those pics are great ikay, Isn't it the job of the aluminium pick-guard shield to join the pot casings together? Excuse my ignorance but what / where are the earths on a Bass? Also where do i wire the pickup ground plate to... this is all i need to know now. And in response to Geek99, yes i did consider getting someone to do it for me, but the only good bass tech i know is in london, and since i'm replacing the pickups and electronics anyway, and the originals were lost, i'm not too worried about keeping it 100% original & authentic. -Tom
  8. Hmm okay, so wire everything to the tone pot, what about the bridge, does that need to be grounded like on most bases... sorry im a total electrics and wiring amateur...
  9. Hiya I've recently been given a 1962 precision bass by a close family friend, he had it in his garage for years gathering dust because sadly, its in pretty awful condition, the wiring was taken out to be rewired long ago and never put back in, it was since lost, Luckily i've managed to get some period appropriate parts, some of which are from the 60s also. I just need to know what i'm wiring and to where... does anyone have any useful wiring diagrams and / or pictures, Some of the things like the Pickup grounding plate, and the aluminium pick guard shield, both of which i have had to replace, i don't know what i should be wiring to... if anything at all, In some photos i've seen that the pickups have been wired of the grounding plate, but i don't know where from, I have got in my possession, a second hand wiring harness and pickups, off another 60's p bass, which is already in working condition, with pots and resistors etc, i just need to know where i'm grounding the harness to, and what else i need, if anything other than what i've already mentioned...? I have: -Wiring (all up together, including pots and Pickups) -Pickguard Aluminium shield -Pickup grounding plate Can anybody help me? Many Thanks -Tom
  10. Hiya everyone! Basically, i'm looking to re-cover (in Tolex) my beaten up old Ampeg 8x10... I would rather not do it myself though, does anyone know anyone / anywhere around Surrey (Guildford) i could get this done, i remember seeing a website that sells the appropriate Tolex, so getting hold of that isn't a problem, But i am no carpenter...! I may also be looking to replace the grill on the front... and of course the white piping... The wooden grill frame has become warped in its old age and no longer fits onto the front of the cabinet straight, so i may be thinking about a full restoration. Does anyone know anyone who does this, preferably local to me. Thanks! -Tom
