  3. I'll answer this 😊 You can use both an expression pedal and a tap tempo when you plug into an a/b selector with all trs jacks. Brightonion just made me one and it works perfectly!
  4. I'm having a bit of a clear out. 2 Fender american standard/elite and high mass bridges for sale, all vgc. These are weighty, solid brass bridges that add sustain and better contact to the body wood. I will incl post cost. Fender USA 5 string high mass bridges. American standard £55 - 5 string 4 screw mount for Fender USA jazz/precision, standard, pro, deluxe, elite. This bridge features grooved and plated brass barrel-style saddles, hi-mass sustain block, and top-load or strings-thru-body bridge plate design. Will not retrofit directly to a traditional 5-screw mount bridge. American high mass string - £30 This bridge was never fitted to any bass, I just opened the pack and it's been in a draw ever since. 4 screw mount. Add sustain, resonance and improved attack without significantly altering your tone when you add this precision manufactured HiMass bridge to your 5-string bass. The brass base and saddles impart warm, authentic vintage-style tone with .72" string spacing for a familiar playing feel. Precision manufactured as a direct drop-in replacement for Fender models; this bridge mounts via four screws. 7
  5. DV247 seems to be owned by a German co called musicstore. The problem is that their main warehouse is in Cologne, so UPS insisted in charging import tax and admin fees as the neck was a EU import. But because I ordered the neck from the UK site, DV247 had to refund the import charges. I think this problem is the same for Thomann and Bax?
  6. Hi, can anyone help with this. The Boss SY1 has a trs jack in for an expression pedal or tap/hold. I am using dunlop dvp4 and a mosky dual tap. I have a split y trs cable - single trs to dual trs. If both the exp pedal and the dual hold are plugged in, the exp works but the dual hold has a lag and you have to hit it twice to work. The mosky hold switch works fine on its own. Any ideas why plugging the exp in would affect the tap/hold?
  7. Just a follow-up to this. DV247 finally reimbursed me the £51. It was a quick and painless procedure involving about 20 emails, creating an account with UPS and finally having going to the UPS office to get an invoice. Only took 4 months. Easy peasy...grrrrrr.
  8. This is from a BBC site. It appears that the import charges are even more when sending from UK to France! This is going to hurt a lot of small businesses, the govt should sort this mess out. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-suffolk-55593308
  9. Sorry, forgot to say thanks for the informative replies.
  10. I have asked DV247 if this correct for the UPS charge? Still waiting for an answer. I'll let you all know the outcome. I wonder how this import charging is going to affect all of the retailers with a UK base, but their stock in Euro warehouses? Also what about the Euro bass makers? It might end up with USA Fenders being cheaper than Sandbergs etc?
  11. Hi, I bought a Fender fretless neck from DV247, £193, shipped from Germany, delivered by UPS. I was charged an extra £51 by UPS before they would deliver. So it seems that the UK import charges are now the same for USA or Europe or the world. Not sure what happened to all those brexit trade deals??
  12. Hi I have a crowther hotcake that I would like modded. Anyone know of someone who is good at this? Thanks.
  13. They are about £350, but so are a lot of non valve preamps. Look like they are built to last, but heavy 3+ lbs. Pity there's no di.
  14. Has anyone ever tried one of these with a bass? Apparently two channels, one is clean with loads of headroom, the other channel is an overdrive. This is all valve, but it is voiced for guitar. https://www.victoryamps.com/v4-the-countess-pedal-preamp

  17. Has anyone rehoused a TS9 tube screamer? I have one that was modded a while back, but it is a heavy pedal and i'd like it in a lighter casing. Anyone done this or know of someone who's good with a soldering iron? Cheers.
  18. Hi could anyone recommend someone who can mod pedals? I'd like to bypass the boost on my dbl hotcake, so that the two sides can 'stack' into one another with all controls working. At the moment when you click on the second side it only boosts, adding gain but bypassing the 2nd side's controls. It thins out the sound. But two hotcakes side by side sound awesome!! Any help much appreciated.
