  1. I'm going back to Elixirs. These sounded great and certainly lasted longer than un-coated, but not as long as Elixirs. Also slightly less tension than Elixirs.
  2. Just done another show with this and once again it performed brilliantly. However nothing more in the diary that I'd use this on until April so can't have it sitting around. Will take £450. Just to stress its absolutely immaculate.
  3. Had one for a few years. Sounded great with a brilliant eq. I had some reliability issues though. Have to say Overwater were brilliant each time but in the end I wanted something more reliable. Might have just been a one off though as I've not heard of many other issues with them.

  6. Can't recall the exact process but at some point it tells you how much it will be in total, in Sterling - before you commit.
  7. I got a Carvin BX500 direct a couple of months ago. Came in at £340 all in. Took less than a week to be delivered. 1st one was faulty but they sent a new one and its fine. Great eq and very punchy. Small and light. Bit of a bargain really.
  8. Bump. Open to offers. Still got GAS for something with valves (not helped by playing through a SVT house rig on Sunday night).

  10. Should have added there's some live sound clips at dwband.co.uk. Mind you its DI'd off the desk and I've more top and mid boosted than I'd normally like - to try and cut through all the the keys, brass and guitar. Nonetheless might give you an idea. Most is fingerstyle favouring the bridge pup. Slap is 50/50 and the couple where I'm using a pick (Malice and Riot) are 2/3 neck pup.
  11. I've a PM 5. The P bass sound is quite close - maybe a bit tighter but not quite as fat. MM sound slightly less so - its less agressive and more burpy for figerstyle - but hints at a MM tone. Proably a combination of the bridge pup being being further back than on a MM and the Glock pre amp instead of the MM one. Nonetheless good sounds and versatile.
  12. That looks like the one leprechaun had as its an unusual pup config for Overwater. If it is then its a helluva bass. I borrowed it for some gigs a couple of years ago and it sounded / played great.
  13. I had this one for a while and its a lovely bass. Great neck. It was a toss up whether I kept this or a Sandberg PM5. In the end my Sanberg got the vote as its a bit more versatile - but it was close. As I recall the bass is in splendid condition - with just the afore-mentioned (very small) patch of buckle rash on the back.
  14. Cheers folks. As usual for BC different ends of the spectrum represented! Must admit in the past I've been a bit old school and sceptical of modelling - and despite the demo on the Line 6 site (which is very impressive) I remain somewhat sceptical. Basspod XT is a curveball - food for thought...
  15. Has anyone had any experience of the Line 6 Lowdown heads yet? I'm toying with getting a valve amp for rock gigs - something I can drive hard and clip (nicely). However I've had an SVT in the past and I think I'm looking through rose coloured glasses regarding the weight. Looking at alternatives I arrived at the Line 6 website. Do these things sound like that in real life? And if they do, how easy are they to use? I remain to be convinced I could call up that synth sound from the website audio tour at a gig.
  16. Seems a bit steep for a starting point compared to other luthiers. These are bolt on construction as well aren't they? Still I'm really pleased to see them back in production.
  17. Bump for pics. Price wise looking at £500 collected. NB - Not looking for a 1x12 now, but interested in amps of a valve persuasion e.g. a Marshall VBA or with a valve gain stage e.g. a Warwick Tubepath if any one interested in a trade / p/ex of some description. Just to confirm the amp is in brand new condition, boxed with the manual / allen keys etc. Cheers John
  18. Hey Ba55me15ter Just noticed you are based in Newcastle. If you fancy a drive down to the coast I'll stick the kettle on. Also, can you say hello to Smidge? I played at his wedding. Regards John
  19. Woah call off the hounds. Happy to talk numbers if you want to PM. Blimey.
