  1. Just purchased a couple of 'Bass' tankards off Mick for our little bar. Total gent and a complete pleasure to deal with.
  2. Thanks for the offer but got filters and wah well covered, might be interested in a mxr bass chorus deluxe or similar. Now Sold.
  3. Price reduction to £160.00 MSD Earthquake Bass Wah - top notch great sounding bass wah, very robust construction. Enjoyed a good few bass Wah's over the years including Morley, Dunlop and EBS- this one is hands down the best. I like auto Wah's/envelope filters also and the latest one I've acquired has an expression input, hence the sale of this MSD. Collection welcome or insured UK postage cost of £12.00 Our Quake Machine is now 20 years old. From the first version to today, the details have been continuously revised. Our philosophy was and is to build the best possible wah wah on this planet. There is nothing comparable in terms of smooth mechanics or be it the variety of sounds. To date, the Silvermachine is the only wah wah where touch-sensitive footrests work smoothly and without delay. The trade press has awarded us “from the most luxurious wah to the“ king wah ”. QuakeMachine Manual Our Automagic version for electric bass and synthies: The first wah wah effect device for bass, in which the sound is processed in all its depth. Frequency modulation from 41 Hertz offers optimally coordinated sound variants. The result is gigantic, bad bass. The features Earth, Quake and fine adjustment are of course also available here. Modern fashion is pure gold here. A powerful bass foundation is preserved through the simultaneous use of the original and effect signal. The Classic Mode opens up completely new sound dimensions to the bass. Suddenly, sound effects can be elicited from him that were previously only known from synthesizer filters. Earth and Quake switches allow a total of twelve different sound settings. Earth offers three different frequency bands and Quake four different filter grades (Q factor = bandwidth of the filter). Two sound variants can be called up via Mini Switch. Classic stands for the classic WahWah sound, while modern fashion creates completely new subtle sound variations by mixing the wah and original signal. The foot switch generally turns the filter on, the wah can now be used as a fixed filter ... Mid Booster. There are fold-out angles on the back so the Silvermachine can be attached directly to an effect board. A service opening "Clean Fader" for cleaning the fader and an external battery compartment complete the overall equipment . Features include: Stainless steel housing Electronic True Bypass Switch 9 V DC socket 2 output sockets in parallel external battery compartment. Technical parameters: Power supply: 6-18V DC nominal 9V DC. Power consumption: 2.7 mA. Weight 1.8 KG Dimensions: W 13.0 x D 24.5 x H 5.7cm
  4. Yes indeed, you are not alone.
  5. I was trying out before I purchased one of the cabs it wasn't a gig- at a gig I don't mic a cab- I would di if I needed to bolster the bass rig through pa.
  6. Yes, the convenience is great, the quality of sound is very good - however I recently had the chance to play my bass through my own power amp and a genuine acoustic 360 pre into one and then 2 folded horn cabs = bass nirvana, the sound was exactly what I e been searching for, I know where I'm headed now. I also don't mind lugging big heavy gear around - which is lucky cos that's what I will be doing for gigs. Ultimately if I can replicate that tone with more modern gear then that's fine- nothing I have tried so far has come close.
  7. I had a couple of Warwick's with the bell metal bronze alloy frets and very nice they were too. I think they have a lovely sound different to other fretted basses and if I were to get another then bell metal would be my preference.
  8. I don't have issues with getting it in and out of the car, I've had other heavier cabs without side handles, never thought they were necessary, tilt and lift from the bottom.
  9. No, as with most of these type/shape of cab, you just stand behind it, tilt it towards yourself (this pulls it onto the castor wheels) and steer it with the handle.
  10. Very happy with my basses, just going a bit 'old school' with amps and cabs and don't mind lugging something heavier. Yes will miss it I'm sure- hard decision to come to.
  11. Withdrawn, too good to part with presently. Price reduction to £1475. Ok here we go, I have really struggled with putting up this advert but finally made the decision to sell this impressive rig. Made by KV2 audio (George Krampera) who is obsessed with sound reproduction of the highest order. This comprises of a kvb800 bass head with 4 button footswitch (contour, FX loop, compression and mute) also has 9v power outputs for pedals and two stackable bass cabs. One is a 15" speaker and the other is a 12" with a high quality horn. The whole system is pure class and tuned to work together. For this reason it would be preferable to sell as one lot. I will consider splitting but only if I have enough interested parties. This has been the best sounding rig I have owned to date. Specifications and photos to follow. Incredibly well built solid but not particularly heavy, also included is a full set of roqsolid covers. Also supplied with the original amplifier box, booklet, and rack ears for mounting the amplifier in a rack case. Grab a bargain, these retailed at about £3800.00 when new. Very few minor scratches on the cabs, the amplifier is unmarked. Nice practical touches include : a smooth contour facility, coloured corresponding lights with amp head and footswitch, di output and seperate level controls for all features. Open to some kind of deal if it included genuine or the more recently re-issued Acoustic 360 preamp and or 361 powered cab or a folded horn cab. KVB 800 The KVB system centers around the KVB 800. It is a powerful and feature-rich amplifier with a revolutionary new tube preamplifier designed specifically for the amplification of bass instruments. The KVB 800 delivers incredible dynamic response by combining some of the worlds best super analogue audio circuitry with a high efficiency and high power amplifier giving unprecedented definition and resolution. Thanks to this revolutionary design the KVB 800 delivers superior acoustic results and high performance within a sleek, compact and lightweight design Applications Features High quality bass guitar system for use at home, the studio or in a live environment Scaleable system depending on the function. Two versions available – The KVB 800 (pictured) and the KVB 800 Rack for easy and convenient rack mounting within two standard rack units. Ultra-High Definition tube preamplifier. Four-band EQ +/-15dB @ 40Hz, 300Hz, 1kHz and 6kHz Contour, Compression and Effects Loop channels each with adjustable level. Mute function. Supplied with the KVB 800 Footswitch Controller for convenient on-stage control of the Contour, Compression, Effects Loop and Mute feature. Also features a 9V output to power additional front of stage pedals. Tuner output that provides continuous signal regardless of the Output Level and Mute functions. Headphone and Line Output with built in VHD Line Driver (DI). Front panel LEDâs with adjustable brightness to indicate what features are utilised. Sleek stainless steel construction.

Like the B1 and B1T it is compact, lightweight and made of the same Baltic Birch wood with protective Polymer coating but replaces the 12â driver with a very high quality low inductance lightweight 15â speaker that delivers improved bass frequency response and adds real weight and improved definition. The B1B can be used as a stand-alone cabinet with the KVB 800 amplifier or as part of a larger system with either the B1 or B1T cabinet. Applications High quality bass guitar system for use at home, the studio or in a live environment Scaleable system depending on the function. Features Professional, Baltic Birch construction with wear resistant polymer coating. 300 watt power handling capabilities. 15” low inductance lightweight woofer. Compact and portable for easy handling. Built in protection circuitry. Indentical footprint for easy stacking of multiple cabinets.

Transcoil offers increased efficiency for greater clarity and output, very low distortion, high dynamics and a faster attack presenting the optimum load to any amplifier by virtue of its zero inductance. The 12â Transcoil technology found in Krampera products gives unprecedented definition that surpasses traditional multiple 10â designs. Constructed from Baltic Birch with a protective polymer coating the B1 is designed to withstand the rigours of live environments. When used with the KVB 800 amplifier it becomes a powerful and portable bass guitar system enhanced further by the optional addition of the B1B 15â extension cabinet.
