  1. OK some picks of head neck which are in good nick . .I got David Merrin (he makes guitars in Bedfordshire ) to give it a good sort out a few years back including french polishing the top. Hardly played it since then though.
  2. Hi sorry just seen this. Bit tied up today will post something tomorrow.
  3. thx - yes I thought that too . But it has a cedar top and the maker said he intended to be a classical - but the cypress makes it brighter. I think somewhere there is a matching requinto. Either way my flamenco is rubbish so I've used it for usual classical stuff
  4. James Baker Classical Guitar – Made in England (well Hackney to be precise) £600 Handmade classical guitar which I’ve had from new (about 25+ years ago) made by a chap called James Baker – he didn’t make a lot of guitars but there are a few around and he a had a good reputation amongst English makers. I think he has subsequently moved to Ireland. I seem to remember him saying this was one of his graduation pieces – its got some nice little decorative touches. It has an unusual combination of woods – cedar top and cypress back and sides – more like a flamenco. Its very light and produces clear bright tone and is pretty loud.. The nut width is a smidge narrower than many so would suite somebody with smaller hands – though I’ve played it ok with my fat fingers for many years. There a some scratches and marks on the top but these are purely cosmetic. Structure is fine and its never given me a problem. I don’t want to courier but your welcome to try in North Essex or I can bring into central London or meet up somewhere convenient.
  5. Fender CB100CE Acoustic Bass and case £180 Price drop £140 Good quality acoustic bass….I’ve strung it with TI Flats – which sound great – but not at all twangy. I used in a local musical and it sounded great. Its got a nice fishman preamp and tuner and includes a TGI gig bag. I don’t want to post/courier so pick up from North Essex or meet up in Central London or drive a bit. Happy to explore ways to meet up elsewhere Body Material - Laminated Spruce Top with Laminated Mahogany Back and Sides Scale Length - 34" (864 mm) Fingerboard Radius - 12" (305 mm) Number of Frets - 22 String Nut - Graph Tech NuBone Nut Width - 1.69" (43 mm) Special Electronics - Fishman Isys III System with Active Onboard Preamp and Tuner Bridge - Rosewood with Compensated Graph Tech Nubone Saddle
  6. Zoot Custom 5 string bass £750 now....£650 Selling my excellent Zoot bass - made just down teh road from me in Essex. This has been through Basschat before and seem it was built around 2010. It was straight black and maple when I got it but I wanted something a bit more disco so I got the wonderful Mike Walsh (Mr Iceni Zoot himself) to fit a mirror scratchplate and sliver knobs. I’m not playing much disco now and need to fund a new double bass. Its a great bass easy to play and fitted with two EMG soapbars (I think these are EMG 40P5 an EMG 40DC) and an EMG BQT 3 band eq.- its really powerful and versatile sounding bass. Other facts 34” scale 45mm nut 17.5mm spacing Weight approx 4.5 kg (10 lbs) Comes with a Warwick gig bag (that has nasty tear but is still usable). Condition is ok – but it has got one chip in paint near jack socket (see pic) Pick up from North Essex or central London. Happy to arrange options for a meetup.
  7. That stand looks interesting - I also suffer from a wobbly Wav. Is it just a pearl cymbal stand? - did you have to adapt to to fit the NS adaptor thingy? GLWTS
  8. Hi.... bit of a long shot but is this still for sale bw Martin (haruki)
  9. Eden WT405 Time Traveller Includes Eden bag + rack ears. (£250) This is great amp. It can go down to two ohms, with a simpler eq section than the other Eden WT series and a nice onboard compressor. Its in good condition I'd prefer not to send but rather meet up or pick up - I'm based N Essex and can be flexible about meeting up. The amp is in great condition but one tiny issue is that the little light on the bass/treble boost button doesn't work - though the boost function works fine Power 8 ohm/4 ohm/2 ohm: 250/405/620W RMS Distortion: <.05% Frequency response: 10Hz - 15KHz +/-2dB Headroom: 3db Dimensions: 13 in. W x 3.5 in. H x 12 in. D Weight: 15 lbs Eden Ex112 cab 300w plus Roqsolid cover (£125) Great little compact cab – very sturdy build. I've got two of them but only need one nowadays 8 Ohm Equipped with: 1x 12 "speaker with dome tweeter Power handling: 300 watts @ 8 ohms Solid wood cabinet with bass reflex front Jack connection Solid metal angle grip Dimensions (W x H x D): 38.75 x 40.65 x 37.45 cm Weight: 13.7 kg

  12. Bass player wanted for established covers/soul/disco party band – Cambridge area. These are a great band doing music to get people dancing. Set list is fairly typical mix of ... Motown/Amy Winehouse/Stevie Wonder/Disco/ska etc... Great music to play bass to and its goes down well. It’s a 5-6 piece band with female vocal, sax (or sometimes two and some keys), new guitarist who is nice n funky and a great drummer. They are also a friendly lot – which is why I’ve been the bass player for over 7 years. But I'm moving on - sadly. They do about 20-30 gigs a year – mainly pubs, private parties and beer festivals – with a few better earning weddings/function things thrown in. Centred on cambridge and surrounding areas (usually within about 20 miles but you'll need your own transport.) Drop me a pm if your interested and want to know more.

  13. Headway Band pickup system . £80 incl postage in UK Produces a great sound. Seems much more natural a sound than other piezo pickups iv'e tried. I've added some new velcro as it was getting a bit worn. Works fine though. Blurb from headway..https://www.headwaymusicaudio.com/product/the-band-double-bass/ "The Band is an instant-fit pick-up which Velcro’s to itself around the the body of the instrument. It requires no alteration of the instrument itself and generates a strong passive (no batteries required) signal which can usually be plugged straight into a mixing desk or combo amp. The multiple pick-up elements of the Double Bass version of The Band are tuned specifically for Double Bass and deliver a lively, tailored passive signal. The Band is used equally in folk/rock and classical situations and is a favourite with sound engineers and players alike, as it offers far greater volume levels before feedback, compared to mics. You can avoid being tied down to mic stands and The Band cuts feedback, bowing noise, body noise and excessive treble by acoustic filter"
