  1. The neck was fitted for me by Rob Green in 2005 and this bass was my go to for over 10 years. It had an almost piano-like quality sound and rarely went out of tune. Sadly it moved on a few years ago when I realised that no longer needed a 5-string.
  2. I have a Spector Shorty USA which has Aguilar pick-ups and an OBP-2.
  3. Welcome back Shep. I'm still here but mostly lurk these days.
  4. Whilst sorting out I came across a few new and unused speaker leads. 2 x 1m Speakon to Speakon using Klotz 4-sq.mm. cable @ £15.00 each 2 x 1m Jack to Jack using Klotz 4-sq.mm. cable @ £13.00 each 1 x 1.5m Jack to Jack using Klotz 2.5-sq.mm. cable @ £10.00 each 2 x 1m Jack to right-angle Jack using Klotz 2.5-sq.mm cable @ £10.00 each Also 1 x 750mm right-angle Neutrik to Switchcraft Tini-4 for analogue Shure Wireless systems @ £20.00 Postage for 1 or 2 cables is £4.00
  5. Virtually all mics have XLR males and mixer inputs have XLR females. Most mic cables are female to male so the sound man will expect to see an XLR male on your mic. It's not written in tablets of stone but it just makes life easier for everyone. Good luck with the project.
  6. This takes me back to my very first home-made bass which used the moving-coil earphones from a German flying helmet. Firstly I would use a male XLR not a socket. As far as the connections go, connect the transformer to terminals 2 and 3 of the XLR. If you are mounting the the whole lot in a metal box then connect that to pin 1otherwise I would leave it unconnected
  7. Any decent screened pair (mic cable) or Starquad cable with good quality connectors should be fine. It's the amp to speaker cables that need to be a decent size but as your sub is powered that should not be a problem.
  8. Looks to me that your amp is UK 240-volt only so could only be used in Canada with a step-up transformer however these can be quite heavy. Probably best to sell and either buy a new one over there or one in the UK with a universal power supply.
  9. I've had a pair of Japanese Metros for a few years and am very happy with them. I can't see them being up for sale any time soon.
  10. Having sold my MM Sterling I now have heavy gas for a short-scale Stingray. The new USA ones look very nice, especially the Sunburst, but they are going to be very expensive so how is everyone getting on with their SBMM SS Rays? What weight are they coming in at? Anyone tried any other strings apart from the stock EBs?
  11. Oh! Should I put it up then? 😉
  12. Just checked it on the bathroom scales and it's 4.1Kg.
  13. 2003 USA made Musicman Sterling Natural finish Maple Neck with Rosewood Fingerboard Black Scratch Plate No case or gig bag Collection or meet-up £900 ono. or trade for short-scale Sterling by MM Stingray + cash There are a couple of dings on the front:

    Small pedal board

    Have a look at the Mooer Firefly M4 and M6 cases. You can cut the internal foam to fit various pedals. If the TU3 doesn't fit then get a small format tuner.
