  1. Many thanks, yes, I'm starting to think the same thing. Used to know a very handy chap, Clever Trevor, who was a wizz with amps etc. but I think he's now retired, or worse, as I've not come across him for a while. I'll start asking around. Cheers, Ade
  2. Hi, North East Coast - Saltburn-by-Sea - North Yorkshire. Cheers, Ade
  3. Thanks mate for this. I'm sure it's not battery issues, as I've put in a number of new PP3s and the same thing happens after about 10 mins. I've got two of these bases, almost identical, and the other one is fine. The bass, with the fault, does not die on me but once the volume level has dropped of - say about 20% after about 10 mins - it just stays at the lower volume. It's still perfectly usable but I've got to compensate for this predicted loss when playing. I could live with it but it's just got me baffled as to why this should happen. Very strange. Cheers, Ade PS I've got an old Stingray and someone, years ago, built in a period sliding on/off switch in the pickguard for exactly the same reasons as you've suggested.
  4. Many thanks. The battery doesn't drain though. The next time I use the bass it's fine, with the same battery, for about 10 mins then the volume starts to drop off again. It could be something as simple as a dry joint? I don't know any 'technical' people in my area so seeing if it's something simple first before I need to send it somewhere. Cheers again.
  5. Hi, I've got two virtually identical Precision Lyte basses, both circa 1990, bought due to back issues and needing a lighter bass. One is fine but the other starts off at high volume but drops in volume after about 10 minutes of playing without any adjustments. I've put new batteries in but the same thing happens every time. I'm not an electronics expert but wondering if there's some form of capacitor that needs replacing? Just looking to see if anyone has had the same predicament and, if so, how they resolved it. Cheers, Adrian
  6. A note to say I've just bought a lovely Lakland Bass from Ordep Resplandor, via Basschat, and would like to thank him for providing both an excellent description of the bass a going out of his way to get the instrument both properly packaged and delivered without any hitch. It must be a characteristic trait of bass players to be honest and trustworthy people and Chris exemplifies this. Thanks mate and all the best, Ade
  7. Hi chaps, thanks so much for getting back to me. I did order a generic bridge set from Ebay with steel saddles, still waiting for it to come, but the lad I bought it from suggested emailing Mark or Guy at Ashdown Engineering. I did and Mark came straight back to me say that they may have some in stock. I've asked for X2 and he said he'd get back to me on Tuesday. Thanks again, Ade
  8. Looking for replacement ceramic bridge saddle for Lodestone Pro 4 Bass as in attached photo. Any help/information on how to get one would be appreciated.
  9. Hi, just wondered if you ever found a ceramic saddle? I got the same bass and one broke in half yesterday.

  11. Bass player, living in East Cleveland, is looking for potential work either with a band or via deputising. Experience gained via formal training in music then worked with both Coverdale and Rea in their original line-ups. Recent experience with ceilidh, folk (Teesside Fettlers), popular music and big bands (Musicians Unlimited). Have undertaken live radio work, both national and local, and national TV work over the years. I have Mark Bass equipment and four and five string electric basses. I’m currently getting back into playing doubler bass and also play tuba and trumpet. I have a reliable 4X4. I read, both music and chords, and also able to play without dots and create bass-lines for original music. I write, and won through to the semi-finals of the UK National Song Writing Competition in 2008. Looking to work with professionally minded musicians, possibly of mature status – like me, and would prefer to work one or two nights per week maximum in the North East area. I’m not keen on pub work and in no rush to find a ‘best fit’ band.
