  2. Mike Lull M5V - SOLD TO OVI!

    Bumping. And to let others know that trading is an option. Especially for something with a strong growl and darker sounding characteristic (think Fretless and Pino rather than Jaco) Enjoy your weekend guys. Thomas
  3. Glockenklang BAC - NEW PRICE

    Could very well be the case, also as it seems I have misjudged the resell value as another BC member is willing to let his go for quite a bit less than what I thouht they traded for. We'll see. So what to do with the Aguilar DB659 I've used for the last 5 years? Decisions, decisions, decisions...... ;0) Thomas
  4. Mike Lull M5V - SOLD TO OVI!

    And now with fresh polished frets.
  5. Glockenklang BAC - NEW PRICE

    Just played through it for a couple of hours this afternoon. Clean is really not the best word to describe it, transparant is. Never heard so many variations comming through just by the playing technique of your right hand as well as the slightest twist of a tonecontrol on my bass. truely a reference class pre-amp.
  6. Off to Germany in the near future. Thanks to all for the interest! The most beautiful Mike Lull M5V ever? Well, you'll be the judge of that. A pain to do decent photo's off given the clear coat always causing refelections, but I've tried my best. My pride and joy for the last 10 years, M5V sn 964. 35" scale, 5A quited maple in honeyburst on light swamp ash body with a maple neck with Bird Eye maple fretboard. Seymour Duncan PU's and Bartolini 3 band pre-amp with 3 way shift for middle frequency. Passive/active switch as well. No tonecontrol in passive mode. The details from Mike: M4V / M5V Features & Specs » Alder, Swamp Ash or Mahogany Body » Graphite Reinforced Maple Neck » Maple or Rosewood Fingerboard » Contoured Neck Heel » 34" Scale Length (34" or 35" for M5V) » 21 Frets » 12" Radius Fingerboard » M5V: 1 7/8" Nut Width and 2 7/8 Neck Width at Body » Bone Nut » Chrome Hardware » Hipshot Ultralite Tuners » Vintage Style Pick-Guard & Control Plate » Aguilar or Bartolini Active Tone Circuits » M5V: Custom Wound Seymour Duncan Basslines Single Coil Pickups (Also available in Hum Canceling) » Aluminum Bridge » Full Electrostatic Shielding Overall good/excellent condition with a few marks at the lower edge of the body, and on top of the head (like 90% of all basses) Weight not above 4 kg and balances perfectly. Sound? Clean as a whistle as you'd expect from an instrument with these wood options and hardware. I've added a couple of photo's showing how it looks with a mat black pickguard that I had specially made for it, Which is useful for for those who prefer a more narrow distance between body and bottom of the D/G string when popping. The pickguard, given its perfect fit, doesn't require to be fixed butkeeps itself in place among other as it sits underneath the slight overhang of the fretboard. Comes with an original Lull Bag. Shipped from Denmark at buyers expensive. Don't hesitate to contact me for additional info. Brgds Thomas
  7. 550£ Located in Denmark Glockenklang Bass Art Classic pre-amp. Won't be needing this myself and rather than just laying around I'm open to offers. Just received as part of payment for a bass I just sold. Glockenklang is well known to us all as reference equipment, and from having tested it today I understand why. Not sure I've ever heard so much of my instruments as through this pre-amp. Clean yet not sterile, just an open window to your instrument with an immediate effect by the slightest turn of a tone knob. General good condition, the usual few marks from having been installed in a rack. Potemeters cleaned by me, hence no noise when rotated. Only thing I can think of is that the volume knob sits a bit further out on the pot shaft than the others, but it is perfectly fixed and rotates as it should without noise. Regards Thomas
  8. Hi guysMalcolm Foster played with Simple Minds among other on their"Good news from the next world" album and subsequent tour.The song "The band played on" track 6 on the album, has a verycharacteristic powerful growling bass sound that always inspired me.Digging through Youtube I've found and old live recording in which heplays a headless bass with this same characteristic sound.It does look very much like a Lefay Pangton with its quite unique shape.So, is it a wenge body, padouk neck bass that I'm hearing, as that's what theold Pangtons were made of? And, if someone has a 5 string bass for sale that has this characteristic growl, I'd be interested. Regards Thomas
  9. SOLD Mike Lull M5V burst/tort/RW REDUCED TO £1400

    Come on bass chatters, how can you lowball this bass? I owned this bass for a while before selling it to Chris B about a year ago. It got it from a professional danish bassplayer, Christian Bak, who's photo's are the ones still in use. It it hadn't been for the fact that I already own two other Lull M5V's it would be back with me now. 1200 £ is 400 to 600 £ under the trading value for an instrument in the Sadowsky, Tino Tedesco, Alleva Coppolo club of world class modern Jazz Basses. Bargain of the Century!
  10. SOLD - Ken Smith BSR5EG Fretless

    Thanks guys And yes, it's priced to sell/trade quickly (my loss your gain) Thomas
  11. Located in Denmark but can be shipped world wide New photo's without flash in order to avoid uneven spots from the refelection. My dream fretless bought by myself from a German Smith collector about a year ago. Ken Smith BSR5EG with what I believe to be a 5-piece mahogany core/flamed maple body, and 5 piece neck. Weight less than 4 kg. 34” scale, String spacing bridge around 18.5 mm. Full Smith package regarding Pick-Ups with coil switches (Serial/parallel) and three band Eq. The serial number and original signature inside the electronics cavity indicates it to be from 1998, which by no means is to be seen from its overall almost mint condition. This does in no way look like an almost 20-year-old instrument, which has been played a lot. And reason I know it has been played a lot is that the fretboard has been replaced due to wear. How does a professional Luthier like in this case, replace the fretboard of a neck through Smith on which the bottom of the fretboard is flush with the body, without damaging the latter? You leave a small layer of it to remain in position and glue the new onto it. Does this influence sound or playability? In no way, but the overall thickness of the neck is a couple of millimetres more than a standard Smith, hence the reason why my price is a 1000 £ less than what they normally sell for. Sound clips from Youtube (not me playing) Fretless https://www.youtube....h?v=XSHEvwohSdU And how versatile they are given the Pick Ups and pre-amp. https://www.youtube....h?v=axggN1U5fwQ Original Smith case and strap included. Only selling/trading as there really is no use for a fretless in the bands I’m in. Willing to trade for the right bass, which could be the likes of a 5 string Roscoe, Fbass or other ”high-end” bass. Alternatively a cheaper 5 string with money my way. More pic’s on request. All the best Thomas

    Hi Guys Thank you very much for the interest. String spacing bridge is se at 3/4" or 19mm, but is adjustable i.e. each string can be moved sideways allowing to narrow the overall width. No tone contol in passive mode unfortuately, not a feature in this specific Aguilar pre-amp. But, if yu're looking for a 5 string modern version of Guy Pratt's famous Burgundy Mist Jazz Bass, this one comes pretty close (All respect to an early 60'ties Jazz in the hands of one of the best players around) Kind Regards Thomas
