  1. [s]For sale, the set of ti jazz flats that were on my fretless ray 4 when I bought it, I've not given them any use besides working out they're too light for me and they were new on when I got the bass... Cut for a 3+1 stingray tuner layout and looking/feeling essentially new. Price includes UK postage [attachment=215336:20160323_142654.jpg] [attachment=215337:20160323_142704.jpg] [attachment=215338:20160323_142709.jpg][/s]
  2. [s]For sale a pair of superb (sadly discontinued) Sennheiser e855 mics, they've been frequently used and show some cosmetic evidence of that. Both work perfectly and sound superb just not fitting current needs...I could do with another beta 58a or two...

  3. [quote name='Beer of the Bass' timestamp='1457620336' post='3000223'] If that were my bass I would get rid of that solid wire tailpiece hanger sharpish though - they're prone to breaking (which is terrifying!) and people often say that the bass opens up with a flexible braided cord. [/quote] The tailgut is on my list of things to do (along with a new bridge, tailpiece and a few other bits when I get some more cash together) it shows no visible signs of metal fatigue or any sign of having been touched in decades but yes I've heard horror stories and it's definitely on my 'to-do' list
  4. [quote name='Jimryan' timestamp='1457613257' post='3000094'] Nice, can't wait to get and try mine. Do you like it? [/quote] It's very nicely built and very sturdy indeed, there's a massive convenience to having the fixed length endpin to just slot in when you setup, I've only had a very brief go with it and soundwise I need a more sustained time to play in a quiet house and do a comparison to be able to hear the full difference
  5. Our first ever outing to Wakefield, if you're local pop in and say hi ...music from half 8 ish, £5 otd
  6. Our first ever outing to York, if you're local pop in and say hi ...music from 8 ish, free entry

  9. [quote name='Jimryan' timestamp='1457420994' post='2998228'] After taking my time settling on a height i ordered myself a walnut one last night. [/quote] mine arrived yesterday, lovely looking piece of Walnut too, gonna try it this evening

  14. [quote name='andydye' timestamp='1455735664' post='2981980'] Having tried Tom's Duke with his Walnut endpin I'll be getting one for my own db once I've fettled one or two bits on it, probably oak as she's even sounding but of mellow tone...first job is to repair her current endpin and then try her with some spiro strings to get a better idea of what she sounds like to know which wood to go for [/quote] Walnut endpin ordered from Ben via ebay, should be here next week
  15. [quote name='sprocketflup' timestamp='1456660083' post='2991080'] Hi, you have any other desires trade wise? [/quote] Nothing achievable I don't think matey (I'd love a fretless Wal MK1 but I've no cash to put towards it - hence unachievable ) I've replied to your pm though
  16. [quote name='liffordmark' timestamp='1456022024' post='2984630'] Consider a trade?? [/quote] Depends what for mate, drop me a pm
  17. [s]For sale is my NXT4 in black, in excellent condition with a total of 3 tiny marks I could find... 1 on front but you can barely see it 1 on back where the body attaches to the stand, and 1 at the top of the headstock. Pics [url="https://flic.kr/p/Eb3kbZ"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/DKMMT8"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/E8QcUG"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/Ejhm8M"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/DmxVMA"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/DmTxCz"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/E8QeZd"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/DmxWtL"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/DmxZ5Y"][/url] [url="https://www.flickr.com/gp/andy_dye/v54W4V"]https://www.flickr.c...andy_dye/v54W4V[/url] Comes complete with stand and bag both in great condition and fully working. I have been its second keeper and it has had infrequent use by me, selling now as I have an acoustic db and it needs a bit of work so I need a bit of cash Part trades with David gage realist pup happily considered Local collection / delivery from around Sheffield / South Yorkshire preferred but shipping could potentially be arranged if it was a deal breaker.[/s]

  19. ...body and neck have now had tinted lacquer applied so I popped in for a look and the neck looks absolutely stunning! The body looks beautiful but is darker than I was wanting so it's getting redone much lighter... [url=https://flic.kr/p/DgoXuk][/url] More neck pics... the fingerboard can be fretted now [url=https://flic.kr/p/Dg4qjy][/url] and here's the back, the basic carve is done, next step after fretting is the more delicate carving for which he'll be borrowing my 'donor' bass so try and get the carve feeling as similar as possible [url=https://flic.kr/p/DEikfK][/url]
  20. Having tried Tom's Duke with his Walnut endpin I'll be getting one for my own db once I've fettled one or two bits on it, probably oak as she's even sounding but of mellow tone...first job is to repair her current endpin and then try her with some spiro strings to get a better idea of what she sounds like to know which wood to go for
  21. [quote name='ljbass' timestamp='1455634321' post='2980907'] small picture of DB head from my avatar [/quote] yeah that looks strikingly similar matey!
  22. [quote name='SubsonicSimpleton' timestamp='1455539692' post='2979951'] You could offer up the plain shank end of some different diameter drillbits to find the correct diameter for a replacement endpin, as far as the retaining bolt goes, you'll have to do that by trial and error, the bolt on my strunal is M8, the most likely sizes to try would be M8,M6,1/4",5/16" I would think, just dont force anything. [/quote] Just taken the brass part of the endpin into an ironmongers to see if they had a bolt that would fit and it's an imperial size which does suggest an older bass to me. An M5 bolt is just ever so slightly too large so I'll get a wingbolt M5 and see if I can recut the thread in the brass part which will then give me a working endpin for about 25p and if it doesn't work it's not the end as I suspected a new endpin would be needed anyway... [quote name='SubsonicSimpleton' timestamp='1455631435' post='2980858'] With the exception of the tuners, your bass looks very similar to my Strunal 50/4, take a look at the pics here http://www.thomann.de/gb/thomann_double_bass_europe_1e_bd_34.htm and see if you can see the resemblance. It would be interesting to make a direct comparison with the two basses next to each other in the same room. [/quote] there are some similarities indeed matey, there is an air of age about her though, the tarnish on the tuners in particular...happy to get them together once I've managed to sort the endpin problem
