  1. I'd play that. Matches my purple sparkle IEMs!
  2. I'm gunna say it and it'll probably make me unpopular... But be aware that this is just my opinion. I really can't see the hype about Sire. Yet to play one I like, they feel cheap, look cheap, and I don't particularly like the sound either. For the money, I'd rather get a Squier Vintage Modified, drop a John East in - it'll be a much finer bass.
  3. Sliding harmonics

    Sliding up is dead easy, you slide the harmonic from just behind the nut (Fred Baker taught me that one), I never asked how to slide them down though...
  4. Actually I've just thought of my worst purchase. I had a Barefaced Big One, probably the shortest amount of time I've kept a cab. Not particularly practical, didn't sound great and when it came to gigging it and competing with drummers, I really had to push the amp to get any meaningful level. Was glad to see the back of that one.
  5. Oh, I'll add my MarkBass CMD121p to the best purchases list too, bloody great for pubs and functions, and when I don't wanna take the big car, I can get my gig rig in the boot of my mum's Yaris Hybrid which probably has the tiniest boot known to man!
  6. Nightmare post for me haha. I've bought erm, a lot! Top three purchases: My new Aguilar SL410x / AG700 rig (endorsement deal sweetened that, too!), my Ultimate Ears UE11 Pro come a very close second, followed by my Fender Jazz Elite V Most pointless purchase: Probably having my Pedaltrain recoated in piano black with purple glitter (my IEMs match it). A totally pointless exercise, but it looks cool XD Most underrated purchase: Cioks DC10, it's fantastic and I need a power supply that won't let me down on the road, but it's one that you forget how important it is. Especially as it's mounted under the board and all I occasionally see of it is the pulsing LED light it has. Worst purchase: A £100 Warwick Rockcase for my Alien acoustic. Best option I could find as the likes of Hiscox don't do cases for acoustic basses, and let's say it's really struggling with life on the road! It's already missing a foot and the covering has various marks / tears, and I'm pretty careful with gear... It's sh*te!
  7. Feedback for ALFIE NOAKES

    Sold some Mesa cabs to Phil, top guy to deal with. Came down to one of my shows and did the deal afterwards. Thoroughly nice guy with great comms and a pleasure to deal with!
  8. New rig week

    Haha it's cool, I understand the perils of forums on phones. Spent many an hour looking for people's feedback threads in their sigs on my phone and wondering why I couldn't see it half the time!
  9. New rig week

    Well, I play for various people but my main gig at the moment is in my sig
  10. As it says in the title really. Used it to house my old bass amp, less than a year old. Had it custom made as Swan like to put the handles on the lids, so I requested two on the sides instead. Rack strip only at the front of the case, very well built and good condition. Naturally has some scratches from use but all intact with no chips or dents. 30cm deep, picture of it next to a normal depth rack case to give an idea of size. £80 in North Manchester, can post at buyers' expense.

  11. Not had this too long as bought it for a backup to my Jazz, but I've decided to keep the Infinity and I'd make too much of a loss on the Jazz, so this one's godda go sadly. Made in 2006, so has a fantastic slim and fast neck. When I picked it up, I was informed that it was owned by a collector who bought it over from America and as a result it has very little (if any) fret wear on it, and I've not really used it much since either! Overall, it's in great condition though there are a couple of little chips on the body, the mark to make a note of is on the front and was bought like this, which is a crack in the lacquer, resulting in the lacquer to lift and there's a chip one side of it. I've checked over it properly and there's absolutely no damage to the wood underneath, so it's purely cosmetic! It comes with it's original hard case, there are some MusicMan tags in there but I've not paid much attention, as the case has lived under my bed whilst I'm on the road as I only trust Hiscox cases - so it's been looked after. It's got Dunlop straplock buttons fitted, a pretty new set of Fodera strings too. Being an HH, you've got two pickups and a 5 position selector switch, so there's a HUGE variety in tone available. It's also pretty light to be honest as well. Not got an exact weight but can get one if you'd like. Based in North Manchester, cash on collection is preferred, but I'll happily ship it anywhere in the world on the proviso that it will be packaged properly, and it has to be sent tracked and insured. I've never had issue shipping like this, ever - see my feedback in the sig £1300 takes it, though I'm open to offers. NO TRADES please.

  12. New rig week

    Oh yeah you still have to pay with an endorsement deal, but there's a very nice / helpful discount
  13. New rig week

    Can't beat new gear week can ya? Actually took delivery of this last week, but the day after delivery I was straight on the road for a 4 night run again. I'm very fortunately to have been offered an endorsement deal, which I would have been silly to have not taken, so here's my new Aguilar AG700 / SL410x rig! I'm absolutely astonished (as is the sound engineer, the main singer who's show it is and the band leader) and just how good this rig sounds! I was running a big Mesa rig before which sounded incredible, but how on earth Aguilar have managed to make something so light sound so heavy, I've no idea! The 4x10 cab and head together weighs less than just one of my old Mesa 2x10s, and it's a much sound too. Very happy with this!
