  1. Thanks, here's another one: SOLDATO - Stay
  2. Here's a video of my band SOLDATO, from last Friday at the Waterloo Music Bar in Blackpool (great venue). Taken by one of the great staff at Waterloo for a Facebook Live video. SOLDATO VIDEO Apologies for the link, dont know how to embed!
  3. I need/want to sell one of my Spector 5 Strings. No trades - £9999 collected (Lancashire) or plus shipping at cost, say UK £25, EU £35?. Spector NS5CRFM Bass (I believe). Made in Czech Republic. Colour is a dark blue that is a little hard to capture in all of the photographs. From the resources on the Spector website I believe this dates from 1999. I can send more photographs or information as required. 34" scale but still a very, very good B string indeed. The bass has Solid Maple body wings, solid brass bridge. These older CRFM's are quite unique. They are built like the current USA Spector specifications are now with the solid wings. The new EURO models have 3 piece wings with a walnut tone plate. I am unsure of the electrics in this bass, it does not appear to be an EMG unit. My best guess is that it is one of the few Aguilar pre amps used in these basses around this time. It is certainly a great pre amp, but be aware it could not be the original preamp from the bass and may be an aftermarket addition. Pickups also each have push pull operation on their respective volume switches for series and parallel out put from each humbucking pickup. Note there are many scuffs, scrapes, chips in the control cavity cover etc and lacquer cracks on the bass as shown in the photographs. This is a 21 year old bass that has been played. Please do not expect pristine condition. However, this is nothing that affects playability.
  4. Ashdown ABM-RPM-1 EVO II Preamp Note that the VU light on the input dial does not work (the needle on the dial still works as it should) - it is the solder in type of light - hence £175 shipped Mainland UK. Soundwise it all works as it should. Sounds great, I'm just finding that the Ashdown sound is not really suiting my band.
  5. Hi bigthumb, I think I sold you this bass? - I had no idea the preamp had been replaced. I will PM you to put things right.
  6. MXR M80 BASS DI + In Great overall condition. Bass D.I. Furious, growling bass tone is here! You've never seen a stomp box as useful or necessary as the new MXR Bass D.I.+. Here's what it offers all in one box! A gritty, fully controllable DISTORTION channel, to explode your tone! A smart NOISE GATE with an adjustable SmartGate sensitivity trigger, to remove unwanted hiss and hum, with no sacrifice of tone. A COLOUR switch for a quick preset EQ contour that immediately places your bass tone in the sweet spot of the mix. A BALANCED D.I. for a solid 'direct to PA' or direct injection to the board signal path! What else? Switch the BASS D.I. off and you get clean bypass, but the unit's own Clean channel features the COLOUR switch for some extra turbocharged tone and with separate onboard BASS, MID and TREBLE controls for quick tweaks! And with three power options available battery, AC power supply or Phantom Power from your mixer, the MXR BASS D.I.+ is certainly a bass stomp box to be reckoned with.
  7. Orange OB1-300 Bass Amp - SOLD I'm more or less settled on my GK amp now, so offering this back up for sale...... Great sounding amp in very good condition/ A few scuffs and scrapes as shown in the pics. The Orange blurb is: These amps have become popular over the last couple of years mainly for their split-signal capabilities which allows you to divide your bass sound into one clean bass signal and one distorted fuzz signal, controlled by the effective Gain and Blend knobs which allow you to choose how much fuzziness you want, from 0 to full-on while always keeping the (clean) fundamental low-end bass sound. OB1-300 LEAVE THE OTHER AMP AT HOME… For years bassists have been combining guitar and bass amps to remarkable effect, adding harmonics and layers of overdrive from a guitar amp to their core bass tone in pursuit of the ultimate live sound. This ‘bi-amp’ trend got us thinking… Why drag two amps to the show when you could take just one? The result is the OB1 Series of class A/B rack mountable bass heads which take care of this and much more besides. The key to the OB1’s unique sound is our footswitchable Blend circuit which adds a veneer of controllable gain and increased harmonic content to the upper registers of the input signal. The lower frequencies and clean signal are left alone, staying warm and clear just as they would be in a ‘bi-amped’ setup. Depending on where the Gain and Blend controls are set, the possibilities are limitless. Punch in the Blend control to achieve anything from a transparent clean boost, to all-out filthy grind, and everywhere in between. KEY FEATURES ‘BI-AMP’ INSPIRED DESIGN The OB1 splits the input instrument signal into two separate paths. One side amplifies the clean signal, with all the clarity you would expect from Orange. The other adds stages of gain to the upper harmonics only, controllable via the amp’s Gain knob. These two elements are combined using the amplifier’s Blend control which adjusts the mix between clean and dirty. The Blend control can then be remotely engaged or defeated using the optional footswitch. The Gain and Blend’s range allows for almost anything, from a subtle level boost to cut through the mix, added girth and presence at moderate settings to fatten up chorus passages, to fully saturated savagery at the extremes. However you dial it, the OB1 always maintains the critical low end definition, right the way up to the most offensive settings! ACTIVE EQ The OB1’s highly responsive active three band EQ has been meticulously voiced for maximum effect with minimal fuss. The EQ section is located after the Gain and Blend dials take effect, allowing full control over their massive sonic range. The Bass and Middle controls feature +/-15dB of boost or cut, whilst there is a range of +/- 20dB on the Treble control. ALL ANALOGUE SIGNAL PATH The OB1 Series puts proper class A/B power back on the map. All circuitry is completely analogue, ensuring these amps sound expressive and musical even at ridiculous gain levels. RACK MOUNTABLE The OB1 Series are our first rack mountable amps, suitable for 19″ cases (2U). Enclosed in a rugged power coated steel chassis the fascia is finished in our classic ‘pics only’ styling. BALANCED & LINE OUTPUTS Balanced DI with ground lift and line level outputs for live and studio use. Specifications Features: Rack mountable (2U) 'bi-amp' inspired bass head with footswitchable gain and blend controls, active 3 band EQ, balanced DI and line level outputs Front Panel: (right to left) Instrument input with active/passive switch, gain, blend, bass, middle, treble, volume. footswitch input, mains switch Rear Panel: (right to left) Speaker outputs (speakon), 1/4" line output, balanced output with ground lift switch Speaker Output Options: Minimum 4 ohm: 1 x 8 ohm, 2 x 8 ohm, 1 x 4 ohm Output Power: 300 watts, class A/B Finish Options: white powder coated steel chassis (2U 19" rack mountable) Unboxed Dimensions: (W x H x D) 48.2 x 26.5 x 10CM (18.97 x 10.43 x 3.93") Unboxed Weight: 9.5KG (21LB)
