  1. Pretty sure it's the same bass, if not they have very similar s/n with the middle numbers "54" being visible on both, and the exact same wear above the pups. It's a really beautiful instrument either way, so sad that they're not being made anymore.
  2. There are some beautiful basses in this thread, thanks everyone for sharing. I've lightly modded my Harley Benton PB-Shorty. Electronics not finished but it'll have a built in Big Muff because why not.
  3. Interesting, looks like a more affordable variant of the BOSS/ JHS angry Charlie. Very cool
  4. I was looking at this, for me it came down to series/parallel switch of the switchblade pro Vs the third loop of the TPM, which I think edges it out. That's probably all the endorsement I need, I can live with a desk full of cables for a bit while I find out what I like, and the TPM looks to be plenty flexible. Thanks to all, maybe I'll update with a few fun examples of the pedal in use when I sink my teeth into it
  5. I'm looking to get a pedal to allow me to experiment with parallel mixing, and I was wondering if anyone has any words of advice. Considering cost, functionality and availability the EHX looks a no brainer, especially considering this is for an experiment and unlikely to be squished into a pedalboard any time soon. Before I pull the trigger I'm curious to hear anyone's experience with the ehx, boss ls-2, VFE Klein bottle or any of the wounded paw offerings. Hopefully this isn't a completely redundant question, I searched the site but couldn't find much written about the tri-parallel mixer... Thanks in advance
  6. Now sold, thanks Seems like the first question for any octave pedal is "does it do the OC2 thing?". I can, with full confidence, state that this 100% nails the OC2 sound Bought on only a couple of weeks ago because I seem to be trapped in a cycle of romanticising analogue octavers, buying one, then realising I play far too many droning chords for it to actually be any use to me. Pedal is in really very decent condition, one ugly scratch by the output jack which I've shown in the photos. Previous velcro was removed by me, and somehow I kept the label and serial number in tact. I realise now that I stupidly didn't take a photo of the underside of the pedal and I'm now commuting to work, so that pic will be added tonight if it's a deal-breaker for you. The little O-ring around the battery compartment screw is as knackered as you'd expect from a 25+ year old boss pedal. Asking £80 shipped as that's what I paid for it and I think it's a bit of a bargain. No box but will be well packed. Any questions just ask.
  7. Would be really appreciated if you can check your PMs, been trying to get your payment details for a few days now.
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  9. Are these the ones that require a deeper routing than standard? Always been curious about them
  10. Really hope this kind of thread isn't the future of this forum. Would be good to keep the YouTube marketing crew from trying to monetise the concept of sharing info and open discussion, this is real garbage.
  11. Brand new never fitted. Never taken out of the packaging. 45 quid posted for both seems a bargain.
  12. Asking price is 325 posted, plus any PayPal fees. I know for a fact that I will regret selling this, but I want to invest in something synthy and I'm really trying to commit to a policy of one-in, one-out with music stuff. No introduction needed really, this is the best sounding gear I ever had. However, I'm making more electronic music than stringed instrument playing. Condition is pretty much mint. I'm the original owner and it's probably not seen more than 25 hours use. The stomp switches have never been stomped as it's been sat on my desk the whole time. It did briefly have 3M dual lock on the bottom, but that came off no probs. It does mean it doesn't have little rubber feet at the moment though, so I'll include some foam rubber 3M pads which are suitable. I have taken a close up of the closest thing I could find to cosmetic damage which is a ~1mm nick to the paint on the bottom edge which I'm 99% sure was there when I got it. The screen protector is still in place (though I cut off the edge with the tab on it because it annoyed me) so the screen will be mint for the next owner. Will be updated to latest 3.01 firmware and all presets reset before shipping to new owner. Comes with original box and power supply. Annoyingly I cannot find the manual or the cardboard sleeve for the box. I know they're somewhere but I haven't seen them since moving house. If it turns out to be a deal-breaker I'll renew the search later this week. Due to the cost of this I am not looking to sell to any brand new members with no feedback. No disrespect intended to anyone, but I am cautious about such things. Obviously in this post brexit world shipping internationally is pretty pointless. If I've missed anything or if you have any questions please ask. Kind regards Frank
  13. I have two brand new, untouched Retrovibe 32" bass necks with blackwood fretboards, bought for an unrealised project. "What is blackwood?" I hear you ask. No idea. It's sort of a... blackish... wood. Looks pretty cool though. Check the Retrovibe site if you're curious - https://retrovibe.co.uk/product/retrovibe-bass-neck-32-medium-scale-20-fret-maple-blackwood/ These are out of stock on the Retrovibe website and usually £65 + £10 delivery. I'm asking £50 each with free delivery which is a bargain, but I want to buy a synth. Will be sent in original packaging. Photos added as requested. Lighting doesn't do the fretboard justice, they look quite chocolatey irl. But I'm a horrible photographer with a very average camera. Final pic shows a slight streak in the grain which I was thought someone might mistake for a crack in the wider shot. Just wanted to make clear that both necks are solid as can be.
  14. Buy anything overdrivey/ distortiony you see in the for sale section for £40-£60, try it for a few weeks, flip it, keep going. You'll need to try a few things to get an idea of what you want. You'll only lose a few quid postage each time you roll the dice. Demo vids and other people's advice are nothing compared to giving stuff a bash with your equipment/ style/ technique/ ears. Personally I love any generic tubescreamer style effect on bass, but it's not a very popular choice in general for bassists.
