  1. I'm using THomastik Jazz flats on my Finn 5. With the filter pre, you can get some really interesting tones. I've been using the same set consistently for the better part of twelve months and have no plans in changing them any time soon. Highly recommended. J.
  2. Gmr make some incredible instruments and this is a steal for a bass of such quality. What pick-ups does this have out of curiosity? Jay
  3. One of my all time favourite players and a very sad loss indeed. One of the most touching and poignant moments in the Standing in the Shadows doc is his conversation with Me'Shell NDegeocello about the love and acceptance he found amongst the other musicians at Motown. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a clip so I'll just include another great scene and performance from the doc: [media]http://youtu.be/OVfF5wKF3Kg[/media] And one of Babitt's playing highlights with bass solo; Scorpio [media]http://youtu.be/KBn_oUH8Uo0[/media] J.
  4. Stephen 'Thundercat' Bruner likes to bust out a p on occasion. Saw him recently in London and it was very, very good. [media]http://youtu.be/jxhMI8Y3Pyg[/media]
  5. Miles Mosley is one name that springs to mind. Extensive use of effects on an upright. Decent singer too. [media]http://youtu.be/Va3TRZ08L6o[/media] [media]http://youtu.be/R0mk1W9HWew[/media]
  6. Pete just bought my Rick Turner fretless. A breeze to work out the logistics, super quick payment and great communication throughout. Great buyer and I wouldn't hesitate myself to buy from him too. Top bloke! Jason.
  7. [quote name='JanSpeeltBas' timestamp='1335455150' post='1631508'] Beautiful bass....what year was it made? Does it have the Highlander electronics or the current D-Tar pickup? [/quote] Just had a quick peak inside. It's definitely the D-Tar Timberline pre/pup. Any other q's feel free to ask. Jason.
  8. [quote name='BigJim' timestamp='1335435387' post='1630935'] would you be interested in any trades at all? [/quote] I'm really aiming for a sale but I may be open to a trade. Shoot me a pm if you have something in mind Jim. [quote name='JanSpeeltBas' timestamp='1335455150' post='1631508'] Beautiful bass....what year was it made? Does it have the Highlander electronics or the current D-Tar pickup? [/quote] The person I bought this from ordered it direct in 2003. I'd imagine it has the later D-Tar pick-up but I don't know enough about when Rick stopped using the Highlanders. I'll open up the guts tonight and take a look to confirm. Jason.
  9. A review by Ed Friedland of a fretted six string version to give a sense of the range of tones available. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSUW4bcUbOg[/media]
  10. Hello gents, I'm selling my Rick Turner as it simply doesn't get played enough to justify owning such a great instrument. It really does capture that warm, organic woody sound that a good upright provides. Although theres no substitute for the real thing. Anyone familiar with the Rob Allen basses should definitely check out this as having played a Mouse and Deep bass, the Turner comes very close. The condition is excellent and I'm the second owner. The original owner ordered it direct from Rick Turner in the States. The only cosmentic flaw is a small indent on the upper bout. I've included a picture below. There are some small blemishes on the underside near the jack but these really are negligible and impossible to photograph. Everything else is flawless including the fretboard. It seems that the Thomastik Acousticore strings designed for this bass aren't very abrasive. I've recently restrung this bass with a fresh set of Thomastik Jazz Flats and it's completely changed the tone of the bass; far more like an upright. The Acousticore strings are excellent too of course. This bass really responds to different strings types and benefits from experimentation. I've included the blurb and link to the spec from the Rick Turner website below. The only difference in the spec outlined on the website to this bass is the walnut body: [i]"These basses provide a rich palette of tones from realistic upright to cutting rock. They deliver a much broader frequency range than traditional basses. Models include 4-string 34" scale and 5-string 35" scale with fretted or fretless fingerboards. Thomastik-Infeld Acousticore strings deliver melodic, punchy tones right down to a thunderous low B. All weighing in at less than 5.5 lbs![/i]" [url="http://www.renaissanceguitars.com/bass.php"]http://www.renaissan...rs.com/bass.php[/url] [u][b][i]sold[/i][/b][/u]! I'm based in London and anyone is welcome to drop round to try out the bass and have a cuppa. The bass comes with manual, hard case in excellent condition, and a new set of Thomastik Acousticore strings which retail at around £50. Any questions, feel free to ask. Jason.
  11. [quote name='pbat' timestamp='1334963000' post='1624267'] Thank you for the compliments.... Are you flirting me Jason? I'm having desires waiting for your PM Zekragash, I'm very tempted with the roscoe and appreciate very much your proposition but please give me a little time. [/quote] I'm a bass tease alright. I'll have a think about parting with the turner and pm you if I think a trade is a possibility. Good luck with the sale in the mean time. Jason
  12. That is a stunning fret less. And I've a Rick turner fret less which I don't use nearly enough. Hmmmm, interesting. Jason.
