  1. Hello all, Up for grabs my ZZB Deluxe in blueburst. I'm no expect on the pedigree of these basses but its a Japanese Matsumoko build of some description. It has playwear and a few dinks but generally well cared for over the years and in good condition, finish is still very good imo. Everything works just fine and it has a pretty decent set up although depending on what you need some new strings might be desirable. Actually a very good quality bass, neck pickup in particular has got a pretty decent P vibe. And, of course, it is extremely pointy. Shipping this will be very difficult due to the unusual shape so collection from Norwich would be best. I don't mind a reasonable journey to handover if you cover my costs.
  2. I agreed but the B did impede, in the end I had to let it off the lead
  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  4. Are those flats or half rounds - difficult to tell from the angles
  5. Really nice, unusual bass. Glwts
  6. Unfortunately our deal did not work out as a cab was damaged in transit. Emili was great about it though, patient and constructive whilst we got the claim sorted with the shipping firm. Always good coms to help glue things together. A great BCer and I would not hesitate to deal with him again.
  7. As I was scrolling down I was thinking 'hmmm, is Peter onto this yet'!!!!
  8. I'm a way away from Cheltenham these days but I lived there when the festival first started and was run by Jim Smith. The acts were a lot more jazz centric then and in the first few years it was brilliant, loads of A list global acts and many more top UK players to. Also a really good fringe scene, plenty of scope to gig and hang generally. Shame if it's a bit more commercial these days but I guess like all things these festivals change and evolve over time. Great news that it's still going frankly even if the odd 'mainstreamer' slips under the radar! There are some really nice venues so long may it continue
  9. 10s and 12s imo are very different beasts. I've enjoyed using both but they are different and it might take you a while to get used to the 12. I've sometimes felt the 12 is not tight enough and has flap on the lows but then the tradeoff is that you do get bigger rounder lows. I used a 210 the other night and it was great but lacked depth in some regards... Sometimes it takes a bit of experimentation to find a line of best fit. I'm still trying after 30 years.....!
  10. Is this the same bass that was in the gallery recently? It's looks similar and I remember the 36 scale. Nice bass in any regard!
  11. OK so at fullest length and measured end to end: The shortest is 38 inches, this is also slightly wider and a little thicker than the others. Really nice in fact (but too short for me) The Fender logo'd one goes to 48 inches, this is probably OK actually but I'll put it in the mix for now anyway The other two are almost identical and go to 44 inches Get in touch through the usual channels!
  12. I've ended up with three of these, will take some exact measurements tonight but they are the small variety. Very good condition, I've recently had to change my bass height and they are now no longer quite long enough. Would very happily trade for similar straps but longer.
  13. Bury is probably a good shout geographically. I've played at the Hunter Club, don't really have a sense if the rooms there would be big enough for what we need (how many typically attend?), the main room is a good size and acoustic though. I know a chap that uses it very regularly for jazz gigs, it works well and I'm happy to get in touch with him for a line on pricing, contacts etc if we think that might be a goer. Looking forward to it!
  14. I cannot believe there is a better way to spend £185 quid (other than on Ghost Ship). Seriously an amazing amp, looks to be in great condition and enough beans to start and finish a small war. UV tube to nullify any mosquitos too. What's not to like?
  15. Great amp and a great price - there is another on ebay right now for GBP 669 If you haven't tried a glock they are well worth a go - very, very good indeed!
  16. Glockenklang Heart-Rock II amp, hugely powerful with massive headroom, 1000W at 2.7 ohms, 750W at 4 ohms, 400W at 8 ohms. Minimum 2.7 ohm load allows mixing cab impedances (i.e. you can use a 4 ohm and 8 ohm cab together). Very high quality head from a respected German maker and it is very, very nicely put together. The only amp I have ever owned which simply gets louder as you turn it up with no change to the sound. Beautiful and clear with a very pure signal path, but it has a warmth to it, not at all sterile. I have listed this amp before and thankfully thought better of it however arrival of another heavy big amp means I might be better off with something small for backup purposes. It's not a 100% decision yet but on the basis this is unlikely to fly out of the door I'm putting it out there now and we will see what happens. I'm at the stage in my playing career now where GAS, when it strikes, leaves me with a vague sense of self-loathing so I will not be unhappy if I end up keeping this. Anyway, check it out, here is the Glock site for more info: https://www.glockenklang.de/en/products/products_bass.htm Pictures will follow shortly but the amp is in excellent overall condition, some very slight marking from use but nothing of concern. It can be shipped but these are heavy - about 40lbs I think. The amp comes with a flightcase or if you prefer I could do a Gator 4 U amp gigbag. This is where it has lived most of it's life with me as frankly it's a lighter and easy carry to the gig than the FC. If we were posting I would recommend the flightcase though for better protection.... If you are near Norwich you are welcome to check it out. I ate all the biscuits but tea or coffee is still available.
