A note about PMs - please read the note in the link above about PMs from the old site.

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy.

  1. Dream bass!

    Interesting you talk about your new one having a low action. The one I played at the SWB had (IMHO) the highest action of any bass I'd ever played and I could not work out why he had set it so high, it actually put me off. But equally I could appreciate it was/is a very nice Bass
  2. Lovely Paisley Bass

    Who do those control knobs remind me of...?

  4. New to forum Framus info please :)

    You could contact Warwick who own the Framus brand now and see if they can i.d. it? http://www.warwickbass.com/en/Home.html

  9. Ageing metal parts with Hydrochloric Acid

    It's Chrome which seemed to work on the Youtube tutorials using Muriatic acid (which is US speak for Hydrochloric). Do you have a different method for Chrome please?
  10. Plays like butter...

    Minty Fresh...?
  11. I bought Hydrochloric Acid (0.1M, 0.1N) to age some metalwork on a Bass by the 'Tupperware Fume' method. As nothing is happening are there any chemists out there who can advise please? I suspect as some offered on sale was 35% I have got a very low dilution at 0.1N/M? If that's the case, would I be able to immerse the items or am I wasting my time and need to get the stronger gear? I tried using Vinegar which works on screws, but nowt else.... I'm trying to replicate that dull metal finish for a new bridge guard on an old Bass....
  12. PM's and Yellow Stickies

    thanks for the info.
  13. PM's and Yellow Stickies

    As some may know, I was having issues with a fellow BC member who despite having something for sale has steadfastly ignored my PM's and messages I left on his For Sale item thread. In fact I started stalking him by posting messages to him on threads he was viewing, to no avail! This was all on the old version of Basschat last week. I can only assume he was on a Mobile version of BC and did not have PM alerts enabled? Can anyone explain on the new version of site, if I send him a sticky will he definitely get it, even if on a Mobile device, and ditto re a PM? Forgot to add, on the old system you could see if someone had read your PM, is there this facility with the new PM's/sticky? Cheers Keith
