  1. Well the top part of the listing says: Item location: Welwyn Hatfield District (B), United Kingdom At the bottom of the listing it says: Shenzhenshi SaidelunTrade Co Ltd Zhiwei Sun 305c1 North block CLP lighting R D center 010 Keji South 12th Road 518000 Shenzhen China As the esitimated delivery is "on or before Thu. 27 May" to Aberdeen I would assume they have stock in the UK.🤔
  2. Nick just bought a load of CD's from me. Quick payment, good comms etc. One of the good guys 🙂 👍
  3. Greg's just bought a load of CD's from me. Quick payment, good comms etc. One of the good guys 🙂 👍
  4. List Updated 18 Oct 🙂 I'm having a cull of some the CDs that I've gathered over the years. All in good condition with cases / inserts etc. To make it easier I'm asking £2 per CD / £10 for 6. Postage would be at cost depending on quantity and where you are in the cosmos. A rough guide for posting 6 CDs from Aberdeen to London is at the bottom of this post and varies with carrier. As its quite a long list I've also attached an Excel copy for anyone to cut / paste / message me with ones you'd like. I'll edit the list below and Excel once a CD is sold so it's easier to check on.

  5. Just bought some D'Addario strings off Colin. Quick delivery and well packaged. Easy deal, good comms would highly recommend. Thanks Colin.
  6. Enthusiasm, a big dollop of woohoo and probably a few "jazz" notes as i'm a bit rusty! 🤣🤣 Not sure what bass though....lol
  7. Hey Steve, I've heard lots of good comments on the BMF cabs but have never used one myself so I have nothing to add really apart from do you know Bill is an active member on here? He has posted a lot of wide ranging "sound" related info that I've learned a lot from. Good luck in your quest for the utimate sound 👍
  8. I think it IS the resting state of all groups of people who get together for hobbies / work / anything really 🙂 After running my band for 15 years I closed it down 2 years a go to give myself a break. I would have classed the band as stable over those 15 years even though people joined and left for various reasons - changes in work, family health, other interests etc. The process of finding the right replacement person(s) to fit in both musically, personality wise and level of committment / ambition (we were amateur) is quite a tough thing to do and can be a bit demoralising having to go through the rebuilding / relearning process, get the band working really well and then have to start the process again after a while. Same thing happens at work, you build a team up and then someone gets promoted, retires, changes job etc. and you start again. It can be frustrating and demoralising but in my case a number of the best players that came into the band were replecements (no disrespect meant to anyone who's been in the band. I was very lucky 🙂 ) I just take the inevitable changes as "part of the job".
  9. Just bought Daves Gramma (not Grandma!!) pad off him. Excellent condition and well packaged. Easy deal, good comms would highly recommend. Thanks Dave.
  10. I make sure all my bass and PA cables are Neutrik /Speakon connectors with Van Damme / Cordial or similar. Chosen not for their sonic capabilities (the differences in good quality cable are lost on my ears) but more for being well made and solid reliability. I'm also one of theose guys who always wraps cables correctly so I have some going back 25 years 😮
  11. Unique number....I think it would be in the spirit of Basschat brethren to gift it to someone with, say, maybe a similar sort of name? Just can't think whom it might suit.......🤔🤣🤣
  12. They're Ken Smith TCRM strings which I've used on a lot of my basses over the years. Even though I do move my right hand around over both pickups I've not had the problem of paying over the taper. To get so close to the bridge would feel a bit strange to me. 🙂
  13. NOT happy! 🤬😉 Saw your bass advertised and immediately began looking down the back of the couch to try and find the farthings to offer in exchange. Turns out 1) there was sod all there! and 2) you'd already bought it! Darn it I was too slow.....but happy its gone to a good member here. 👍 I used to have a very similar one and a friend persuaded me to sell it to them during one of my "not that bright" moments Here's a pic of my old one and hope you have lots of fun with yours 😁 They are excellent basses.
  14. I would agree with you on this but only as far as playing country (not western) is concerned. If you get into the more technical aspects of the speed polka genres then the baseline minimum would be raised by 50% with some scholars even quoted at up to 57%. To be a true officianado and expert in the execution of speed polka it is also expected that no external aids or stimuli such as chicken grease, sweat or WD40 be used in assisting the exponent.
  15. Some of the "problem" could be down to the way you are holding In your bass. In the second photo it looks like your wrist is quite bent and your elbow tucked into your side. The lower you wear your bass increases the bend in your wrist (for 1 finger per fret) and tends to close your hand up naturally. This can be compounded by having your elbow too close to your body. Years a go I struggled with similar problems including bent right wrist resting over the top of the bass. My bass teacher told me to "spread your wings" 😂 and lift each elbow out and away from my body. Doesnt need to be far and it feels a bit strange to start with but I found it worked for me.
  16. This is probably the most "modern" looking Fender I've seen and quite like it. Yes its a bit bling but not too OTT. Now lets talk about this one......😳 Design premis "make me a bass out of some old floorboards adorned with a 60's formica chopping board shaped into scratch plate whilst bolting on one of those used necks we found behind the skip"...... If this bass had come up on Ebay by a certain bass-bodger ...er builder then there would be a Basschat thread about how could he wreck something so badly! 😂
  17. I give a strong second to the Sadowsky Metro. Great sounding basses. PS: @thodrik How big are your hands???? 😮😂
  18. Although it would be wise not to use this phrase when actually using it on a flight! 😮 Needless to say these are very good cases. 😁
  19. Just received a couple of cables from John......for absolutely nothing! Cant think of a better deal than that. Thanks 👍
  20. EVG are also on Reverb and have been in Guitar Magazine so things seem to line up reasonably well (as long as it is his Ebay account 😮)
  21. Ian bought an Ibanez bridge off me. Good comms and quick payment, just what you want in a deal. Thanks again Ian.
  22. Davie bought my knobs (stop sniggering at the back!). Quick payment, good comms. Great guy to deal with. Thanks again.
  23. That's a good point I hadn't added that to the advert! They're both the same size at: Width = 39mm Length = 108mm Height = 23mm Foam thickness = 5mm
  24. My second deal with Andy, this time I sold him 2 Hercules wall hangers. As usual quick payment and good comms. Many thanks.
