  1. Hipshot A style comes in 5 string spacings. The 18mm version should be a pretty easy install, although would not be a direct fit.
  2. Just waiting on my transport back to NL. Bas and I did business for the millionth time today which resulted in me having a big case with a rather yummy Yammy with me. And Bas took me to lunch even 😎 Absolute pleasure to deal with, and really nice to meet you in person Bas. Cracking collection of basses you have (even without a jazz ...). Thank you.
  3. Thanks, unfortunately upgrades rarely add a lot to selling value, but I think I am pricing fairly. And LTD price/quality ratio is awesome.
  4. Cheers Bas, had seen it but appears not to be progressing.
  5. Since I now have an okay effects based solution for the 1 song I need it for, I am considering parting with my 8 string. It is in really good condition I am struggling to see any real sign of use. It really sounds the part too and plays effortlessly. See thru black, black hardware. -Basswood Body with a Flamed Maple Top - 5Pc Maple&Rosewood Neck with a Rosewood Fingerboard - TOM Bridge & Tailpiece and LTD Tuners - Bolt-On Neck Construction with a 34" Scale with 24 Extra Jumbo Frets and a Thin-U Neck Contour The pickups and preamp have been upgraded to Seymour Duncan SSBs and Aguilar OBP-3 I would potentially be open to trades, but ideally looking to sell. Price excludes shipping in Europe (35 quid with neck detached) but also have the ability to take it with me when I visit the greater Manchester area twice a month.
  6. I have had a Mono M80 double for years, it has endured countless gigs and still has very limited signs of use and protected my basses against quite a few bumps and (small) drops.. cannot say lower priced once wouldn't do the job but I will probably be buried with my M80s (I have single and doubles).
  7. EV ELX200 15SP I believe it is called, a mid priced sub. But we actually used to have the Alto TS series, incl sub and I can’t say they were significantly worse than pur current EV setup.
  8. Btw Alto surprised me, good value for money and whilst not in RCF territory very useable.
  9. Often we do, small gigs we will generally only route vocals and keys through the PA, if we add guitars/kick etc we take a small sub. Makes a big difference.
  10. I have to disagree with you. Lull, Yamaha all use normal P pickups in their PJ 5s and my Lull PJ5 had one of the best B's I ever owned. It is as much about the construction of the bass as it is about the pickup.
  11. Will stick with my EBS Sheehan for hi gain gallops...
  12. Not sure if they can be considered "reasonaby priced". They often use pretty much the same preamp as the Sandbergs (Glockenklang). Another to keep in mind. https://www.thomann.de/gb/esp_ltd_ap_5_black.htm Price to quality ratio on LTD is pretty amazing too.
  13. Caustic sweat.... it depends on your sweat type and how it corrodes the metal. Pretty sure of that, hence some basses do and others do not discolour.
  14. Not surprised it sold this quickly, price is just ridiculous. Congrats to who got it.
  15. I might be biased, but Bogarts are a hidden gem that hold their own against Modulii, Statii and look better.... if I didn’t already own several this would already be in my possession. Great instruments.
  16. Rare, yes kinda. And yes, great great great basses. GLWTS
  17. I played 5 stringers exclusively for many years (been playing 30 years in total) and 6 for several years too. At the time I could not imagine ever going back to 4. However, in the last few years I have increasingly gone back to 4, to a point where I now only own 1 5 string that I use when I need it (depping mainly), but day-tp-day I mainly use 4 string basses with a Drop D tuner. And I also have a BEAD tuned 4 string that sounds killer. Ultimately it doesn't really matter what you play, it is what you do with it.
  18. And if you power it with a separate power supply? Still the same? The Pitchblack has a small draw of 35 mA and shouldn’t have any issue being powered from the Fame. AllI can think of is that you are either plugging your dc in into the dc out (which is unlikely), the dc in got damaged (in which case a separate power supply test will confirm/deny) or that you need to plug in a jack (jack switches unit on) for it to work and it just looks as if it isn’t working due to you not trying with a jack inserted.
