  1. Fret buzz on the first few frets usually indicates the nut is cut too low IME. Have you checked it?
  2. Ian has just bought my Status S2 from me. He came round to try the bass and we spent over 2 hours playing and talking all things bass. 👍 He's a true gent and I'm very happy to recommend doing business with him. 😁 Have fun with the bass Ian.
  3. For sale is a bass some of you may have seen before...."Pitza Kustom". As the link describes it started off life as an Ibanez SRX 305 which I quite extensively modified both pysically and electronically with a Mike Pope preamp and Seymour Duncan NYC pickups. The preamp / pickup combination is a slight variation on the ones that get put in Foderas. The preamp currenty costs about £240, the pickups £270 for the pair and the Babicz bridge go for about £175 so just in those parts I have £680+ invested! I suppose if there were enought people interested in the individual parts I could split it out but I think that would be a shame though as it works very well as a complete unit. I might be interested in a trade for such as a Vanderkley 210MNT or the likes 🙂
  4. I thought you would have added this one as its rather good 😁👍
  5. Here's 2 videos I sent to an interested Basschatter. The first is a demo of all sound combinations for the M5-24 (even the extreme boosted eq) along with slap and finger styles and its pretty accurate to my ears of what the bass can do. This Bass Club Chicago demo is also very good, with a bit more "coherant" playing 😉
  6. For sale (or trade) is my Sadowsky M5-24 Modern 5 string and lightweight “hard” case. This is one of the Japanese Metroline made basses and not Warwick or NYC. Lovely bass and I have enjoyed our time together but I’m looking for a change in the basses I have…… I would give it a 9.5 / 10 for condition with only a couple of small marks that I can see and have added pics. Current Warwick Metroline M5-24 are costing around £2,400. Make & Model: Sadowsky M5-24 Modern (Japanese Metroline) Made: Approx. 2009 Serial Number: M3170 Body & Top: Swamp ash body with a 59’ sunburst gloss polyurethane lacquer on body Neck: Bolt on, maple, gloss polyester lacquer on neck, graphite rods Scale Length: 34 inch Fingerboard: Maple. 24 frets – 2 octave. Side and front dot markers String Spacing: 19mm Hardware: Machine heads and bridge in chrome. Strap locks fitted Truss Rod: Dual action – fully functional Pick Ups: 2 Sadowsky soap-bar pickups Controls: Sadowsky with VTC – 9 volt active pre-amp. Volume, blend, treble, bass, VTC (variable tone control) with push / pull for active / passive Strings: Fitted with D'Addario, Pro Steels XL, EPS300-5 Case: Lightweight foam “hard” case Weight: 8.8lbs / 4kg Website Links: https://www.sadowsky.com/sadowsky-instruments/metroline-basses/24-fret-basses/ Shipping Weight: Approx. 10kg / 22lb. Shipping will be at cost. Msg me with your postcode and I will get a price. Trade wise I'm pretty much sorted for basses at the moment and would prefer a straight sale but I could be interested in a Fodera Emperor, JCR, Sei etc., 5 string with active electronics, 24 frets, 18 / 19 mm spacing. Try me, you never know! I’ve got good feedback on here, see the link in my signature. Any questions, ask away. 🙂
  7. For sale (or trade) is my Status S2 Classic 5 string and original Status hard case. Lovely bass and I have enjoyed our time together but I’m looking for a change out of the basses I have…… I would give it a 9.5+ / 10 for condition. No dints or marks that I can see only some slight surface swirls which I couldn’t get to photograph! Current price list shows the S2 bolt on costing £2,625. Status have closed their order book for the moment as they have a lot of orders to complete so there could be a long wait for a new one. Make & Model: Status S2 Classic, 5 string, headless Made: Approx. 2014 Serial Number: 02143670 Body & Top: Mahogany body with walnut centre tone-block, coloured pin-stripe and book-matched figured maple facings. Natural satin polyurethane lacquer on body Neck: Headless, bolt on, graphite woven, gloss polyester lacquer on neck Scale Length: 34 inch Fingerboard: Phenolic. 24 frets – 2 octave.

  8. Generally in a band, yes. Just a bit trickier in an orchestra 🤣
  9. Way too early to go! Sad to hear the new as he did build both "out there" and useable instruments. I remember seeing some of his melt top creations and immediately added it to my "wanted" list. It took me a number of years to find one (in the States) and bring it back home. Played it regularly for about 5 years. 😥
  10. I couldn't find a feedback thread for Jason (@jassthebass) so I'm pleased to start one off for him. He bought my PJB D400 amp from me. Excellent comms, quick payment, no messing about from this gentleman so I would gladly recommend dealing with him. Thanks again, Mike
  11. I never thought of using underwear to maintain my bass. Might just try it next time 🤣🤣
  12. The "sponge on a string" they use to make the mold goes in further than the actual plugs themselves. As @chris_bsays they're probably the main reason many of us can still gig and hear OK. Best value money I've ever spent on musical equipment!
  13. That looks suspiciously like the Rusty Nail? If so, we were there the previous Saturday. Whats the name of the band and I'll keep a look out for you. 👍
  14. Are you sure you're not using a guitar amp? This feature seems to be in built with most models. 🤣🤣 I'm not an electronics guy but have heard in the past of intermittent problems with power supplies (transformer etc) not providing enough juice then giving it full beans (both technical terms 🙂 ). Also if the volume pot loses connection to ground the volume will increase....but why it would do this only during mid gig I don't know. Happy hunting!
  15. Try out Graeme Mennie in Aberdeen Facebook link. I've trusted him with my Wal when I had it and he builds guitars and pickups for the Stranglers 👍
  16. Just bought a Smooth Hound and DSL strap from Dave. Excellent condition equipment, quick delivery and easy deal. Many thanks 👍
  17. But coming up with the suitable excuse for my better half isn't 😳 (I must stress that she is usually VERY supportive and I haven't quite found her limit......yet! 🙂 )
  18. ❤️ Phew! Gorgeous bass. Thank goodness this is a fretless or I would be in trouble 🤣 GLWTS
  19. Here's my Phil Jones D400 for sale. I've got 2 other amps which I'm using at the moment so this is going to waste only being used for practices 😮 If you Google reviews on this amp you usually get "great amp, noisless, light, clarity of sound etc." comments.....to which I totally agree. Rather than me regurgitate all the specs heres a link to the PJB site - PJB D400 & Manual I've always had the amp racked to help keep it safe. It's in excellent condition both in looks and functionally and comes with the soft case, rack ears and original packaging / box. You've probably noticed its also one of the rarer red versions as these are usually black. Postage is available, just send me your postcode and I can get you a quote. Preferred payment is bank transfer or Paypal gift.
  20. Great pads these 👍 Check this wanted ad : Gramma Wanted @peteb
  21. Guess it wasn't too far on my bicycle after all....now heading home with me to Aberdeen. Thanks Shep 🙂
  22. Just bought Sheps Roscoe from him. Great guy, easy to deal with, bass is in great condition 👍 Thanks mate, much appreciated (only another 425 miles before I get home and can try it with my rig 🙂 )
  23. Oh how I agree with all of this. I ran a covers band for 15 years and tried and tried to get other members of the band to realise that the audience comes to be ENTERTAINED. The music side is important but there are so many other elements to people going away feeling happy. Our guitarist had a perpetual scowl on his face even though that wasn't his personality and the lead singer(s) would not plan things to say in between songs ie: "Hello we are...... etc" As we used to play 3 or four songs in tight succession they only had to find a dozen or so things to say during the night.
