  1. Sound Help

    Rasing the pickups at the D and G strings side might Help. Also make shure all strings are following the fretboard radius.
  2. warwick Streamer stage I - bargain alert

    Ups, allready gone, and i´m not surprised. it was a streamer stage one, from the early 90`s for 400£.
  3. Broken nut - Nottingham or Warwick

    Depending on the damage, but a few drop of epoxy might do the job.
  4. I spoted this bargain at gumtree. Any volunteer in the neighbohood to pick this up and send it to me to Portugal ? https://www.gumtree.com/p/guitar-instrument/warwick-streamer-bass-guitar/1275600085
  5. Pick up advice needs

    I think the Bartolini CF5CBC are a direct replacement. The Ibanez ADX5 and the DX5 were made (i guess) by mightymite. [url="https://www.bartolini.net/product/cf5cbc-t/"]https://www.bartolin...oduct/cf5cbc-t/[/url]

  7. Why does high action sound better than low?

    [quote name='Cosmo Valdemar' timestamp='1505820667' post='3374524'] I don't really buy into this theory... How does the string know how far away it is from the neck? I mean, a string with lower action surely 'moves' as much as one set up a bit lower? Also with adjustable pickups you should be able to keep the optimun height regardless of action. Happy to be proved wrong of course but it's never really made sense to me. [/quote] +1 IMO, The pickup magnetic field will afect string vibration and consequently the sound (wether you can hear it or not) So, i guess the distance between strings and pickups will have it´s consequences... not the action.

  10. Vegan straps?

    Take a look at the Gruvgear solostrap neo. expensive but good and animal parts free

  12. Spector Euro 4LX - Mids (help please!)

    I`ve never tried the EWS, so can´t give much help on that, but just in case you haven´t tried it before, try to lower a bit your lows and boost low mids and high mids. Some basses need more extreme eq settings than others to make them cut.
  13. Longer lasting roundwound strings

    [quote name='dmccombe7' timestamp='1497002246' post='3315185'] I didn't know that as i changed from Fender nickel to D'Addario nickel and thought they sounded pretty similar. Dave [/quote] Someone correct me if i´m wrong, but i think fenders are made by D'Addario and in that case, that makes perfect sense.
  14. New Boss MS-3 multi-effects

    I´ve been looking for a simple pedal switcher but this thing got me thinking!!! It´s great way to save some space on my pedal board. I realy liked to see the Andertons review with the bass. Tempting
