  1. I'm interested but will have to wait for someone to buy my my Erhlund EAP first. (probably time to give it a bump)...no need it's still on first page
  2. I managed to find a free hour to go and visit Pierre. It turned out to be only a 12 minute cycle ride away from where I’m staying. It was good to actually get my hands on one of the basses I’d looked at and also try out some other great instruments. I highly recommend getting in touch with him if you find yourself in Brussels.
  3. Yes, there’s some great looking basses there. Unfortunately it’ll probably be too awkward to arrange a time as I’m unlikely to know in advance when I can excuse myself from parenting duties. I do have 3 days though so may drop them a line. This just the sort of info I was hoping to find here. Thanks everyone.
  4. Thanks. That’s a shame. I’ll have to default to my usual sifting through vinyl instead. ps I’m still enjoying the fretless Maruszczyk Frog though there’s a Wal on here that’s got my attention.
  5. I’ve just ordered a super midget but I’m still tempted by this. It depends on if I can be honest enough with myself to admit that I’m going to keep both rather than the partner ready line : “I need to try them both next to each other and keep the one I like best.” Manchester and Yeovil are too far away from each other so I’ll have to wait to make my decision once the post option appears.
  6. I’m in Brussels for a few days with family and was hoping to slope off at some point and have a look at some basses. Has anyone who knows the city got any recommendations? Time will be too short to just try the google top ten and hope to get lucky.
  7. Go to https://uk.line6.com/software/ click on Downloads at the top, then go to HX Stomp in the Hardware pulldown menu. the list of all effects is pages 19 to 27. You can bypass HX Effects (which I have) so I'm guessing you can on the Stomp.
  8. Double bass wooden endpin from Lando Music. http://www.kontrabass-atelier.de/teile_e.html#ep It's approx 16cm without rubber, approx 18cm with. For 10mm end pin socket £25 inc p&p I've recently increased the height I have my bass at by 7cm (finally sorting out my left shoulder problem in thumb position) so can no longer use this. There are a couple of small scratches on the metal ring (see photo, they're both pretty similar so didn't take 2 pictures) I did have a thin strip of paper inside the metal ring to keep it nice and tight but it seems fine at the moment. I guess this may be due to the wood reacting to temperature. If you're in Manchester you can pick it up and save yourself a fiver. I've tried to get a decent shot of the length but due to the angle when getting the whole thing in it looks out with the ruler. Did a close up on the last one.
  9. I promised my wife that I would sell it once I got my Helix HX but I'm such a hoarder I was tempted to keep it just in case I needed it in the future. There are more than a few things I have that also fit into that category (like spare emergency amps that don't really work that well anymore). Typical conversation with self...I might need it as a practice/headphone amp...but you have a Phil Jones Bass Buddy...well what if that breaks?...etc I now need to have a long hard look at my preamps. Marie Kondo has a lot to answer for.
  10. Thanks for the messages Al Know & songofthewind.
  11. For Sale Ehrlund EAP acoustic pickup. Highly regarded but just not quite right for my bass. £240 including signed for and insured UK postage. PRICE REDUCED TO £225. (That's about a £200 saving on new from Ehrlund.) Paypal Business payment for your peace of mind. https://ehrlund.se/product/eap-system/
  12. Zoom B3n in very good condition. It's been attached to my pedaltrain with hard case since I've had it. It's pretty much mint apart from a couple of small marks on one side (see photo). I've left the hook velcro I used on in the middle. When I attached it to my board I removed the rubber feet and had strips of velcro in their place. The rubber feet were kept on greaseproof, sticker backing paper, so were reattached with no loss of stickiness. The price includes UK signed and insured postage.
