  1. I bought this from here a few years ago and used it in a couple of bands at uni but it's lying dormant at the moment so I thought I'd pass it on. I believe it's a prototype/one off Alan at Bassix made while working on something else - if not a one off it's certainly about as close as you can get! It is very purple, very V shaped and very eye catching. It is strung with black nylon coated electric bass strings, except for the D which is a cheap upright string as the old one broke. Sound wise it's more like a fretless than an upright, I used to run it through a fishman bass preamp to give it some more oomph. I'd like £200, it comes with a soft case and you're welcome to come and give it a play in Sheffield. You too could look as cool as this:
  2. These are currently on ebay with a day or so left. Radial - [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Radial-Bigshot-Mix-true-bypass-effects-loop-switcher-with-blend-/321048458943"]here[/url]. BBE - [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BBE-Crusher-distortion-effect-pedal-/321048477507"]here[/url].
  3. I put my old G5 on ebay when they were doing the post Christmas free listings, it's not in the best shape but priced to reflect that. If someone on here buys it drop me a PM and I'll do free postage, if it doesn't sell I'll patch it up and bring it back over here. It has about a day left, the listing is
  4. Just bought an amp attenuator from Tom, everything went super smoothly with great comms all the way, packed really well and posted nice and quickly. Recommended seller and would deal with him again without hesitation. Buy his stuff!
  5. I'm a fan of the old system, especially for the discussion of items and the lack of formality - I like getting an insight into sellers from their communication with people and (sometimes) how they write their adverts. I don't think thumbnails are needed but a form requiring information such as location and a price would be good, however as has been mentioned, if an advert doesn't provide much information then the main consequence is that it is less likely for the item to sell. A pay per ad system would be fairest to raise money - it would need to be cheaper than an ebay listing - but adverts should be viewable to all; I think I first found the site from a link to a for sale item.
  6. I got this 2nd hand a few years ago and had it defretted when I wanted to be Les Claypool. Knowing owning a real Carl Thompson rainbow bass was nothing more than a dream, I figured the closest I could achieve was a rainbow painted bass. I must confess the finish isn't of the highest quality but it looks rather striking from a distance (or from the audience as you stomp proudly around the stage). It was made in 1993 and has an active 2 band EQ, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and alder body, I seem to remember the grain being quite nice if you were to strip it and go for a natural/transparent finish and it comes with a tatty but usable gig bag. It's in need of a couple of knobs and a new set of strings. I'd like £100 collected from Sheffield or will post at cost, you're welcome to come and give it a try.
  7. I have a bass with Nordstrand jazz pickups and an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp and I've recently been having lots of problems with interference noise (thought it was stage lights at the time) and clicks when I touch the strings and pots which points to grounding issues. I've just had a more thorough poke around and all the wiring is sound but the pickups seem to be microphonic (if I crank my amp I can use them as a vocal mic). Could microphonic pickups cause the interference noise and grounding issues?
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  9. I have an ACG EQ02 [font=arial, sans-serif][size=3]4K/PT[/size][/font] preamp in my bass which I'm very happy with but is a bit too complex for my onstage readjustments as it's so versatile. It has stacked volume/pickup blend, treble stack, bass stack and passive tone, full info is here: http://www.acguitars.co.uk/shop/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=7. I'm thinking about trading for something like an Aguilar OBP-3 but will consider any (ideally 4+ pot) system or will sell for £120 posted. What have you got?
  10. It's gone I'm afraid. I'll change the thread title.
  11. I use it with a Little Mark Tube and it's great; kicks out a surprising amount of volume for it's size and is really punchy and gives you the hifi sound. You're welcome to come and give it a try.
  12. I'm selling this great EBS cab which I've used for lots of wedding/function gigs but now I've got a car I'm using my bigger Markbass cab. It's 250W, 8 ohms, neodymium 1x10, tiltable (a bit), has an insane tweeter with level control and speakon and jack connections. Full specs are on the EBS website here: [url="http://www.bass.se/2009/neo110.htm"]www.bass.se/2009/neo110.htm[/url] It's in great nick, can't see anything wrong with it. I'm after £270 collected from Sheffield, will post if required.
  13. [b]Radial Bigshot Mix - [/b]This is a great loop pedal that allows you to mix the dry signal with the effects. It's also got a phase switch which is particularly useful for synth type pedals to stop frequency cancellation. It's seen some use on my pedal board and has a couple of scratches and I recently replaced the switch (with a replacement from Shure, the Radial distributer) as the old one jammed but it's built like a brick sh!thouse and is works perfectly. [s]I'd like £50 delivered.[/s] Now on ebay: [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Radial-Bigshot-Mix-guitar-effects-true-bypass-loop-pedal-with-blend-/321130856900"]http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Radial-Bigshot-Mix-guitar-effects-true-bypass-loop-pedal-with-blend-/321130856900[/url] [s][b]3Leaf Audio Groove Regulator[/b] - highly praised envelope filter, this is the original mk1 version. It's a great pedal but I'm not using it much at the moment and I need to reclaim some space on my board. Excellent condition and comes with original box and 3Leaf canvas bag thing, it has velcro on the bottom. £95 posted.[/s] [s][b]Behringer Hellbabe[/b] wah - lots of tweakability and has a handy boost control, again I need board space back and this doesn't get used. Has velcro on the bottom and is in great condition. £25 posted.[/s] [s][b]BBE Crusher -[/b] distortion with useful 3 band EQ to boost the bass, boxed in good condition (a few light paint scratches, nowt serious) - £30 delivered[/s] [s][b]Tech 21 Red Ripper[/b] - crazy synth/fuzz/distortion box of joy, very good condition - a few dings in the paint but purely cosmetic. Comes with Tech 21 metal tin and instructions. £100 posted.[/s] [s][b]Boss SL-20 Slicer[/b] - play a note and it'll slice it into rhythmic patterns, arpeggiate it and mess it up in a number of intriguing ways. Smash it with some fuzz and you get some rediculous noises. I'd planned on doing some harmonicsy solo-ey stuff with this and a looper (it also has a looper built in) but didn't get round to it before car insurance needed renewing. Excellent condition, boxed with instructions, £110 posted.[/s]
