  1. Purchased a comfort strap from Colin which arrived as described,excellent communication and swift service. Cheers.
  2. A word of warning to all you owners of the Mesa Boogie Subway amplifiers. I have gigged my MB Subway D800 for a couple of years ,enjoying the portability over my MB MPulse 600 for the smaller gigs. Although these amplifiers come with a very good PC style carry case the ease of carrying them in the case leads one to think that the case will protect the amp to transport it when gigging. The controls of my amp were damaged when it was knocked on the main facia plate whilst in the PC style case although there was no noticeable visual damage. The excellent team at Mesa Boogie Westside Distribution in Glasgow did a fine job of repairing the damaged controls. I would suggest that you purchase a small flight case when you are transporting the amplifier just to be on the safe side,lesson learnt the hard way :0(

  4. Basschatters Thx for the feedback regarding the strings for the Gibson EBO. The bass has a very inherent tone which has been described as "muddy" and really suits the blues/jazz genre. Will be trying some flats and some roundwounds to see what works best.
  5. Can any of you BC people advise on what strings you would recommend for a 1968 Gibson EBO bass.

    Bought a P bass from Lawrence,bass was exactly what I was looking for. Met up for a quick bass collection at Guildford Station,great to do business with.

  8. I also own an Mpulse 600 with a Berg CN212 but have just bought a Mesa Subway 800 which has been very impressive. For a number of gigs just lately the Mpulse 600 in the flight case has stayed at home just due to the weight factor and basically not wanting to the M pulse out in the rain and snow :0) Interested to hear how your new power amp works out.
  9. Just played this bass this afternoon and it captures the late 70s Jazz Bass sound (my first Fender Jazz was a 1977) and has great sustain when played acoustically.
  10. One of the best sounding Jazz basses I have played and the pots and electrics were serviced by me for the last owner.
  11. I purchased a Vanderklay MNT 1x12 cab from Steve and the transaction went very well.
  12. Marvellous day with some interesting bass stuff to view and some great presentations from Dave and Steve. Enjoyed Dave's rendition of a Trevor Bolder bass part as when I went to see Heep at Portsmouth Guildhall in the 70s you could not really discern the complexity of the part due to the terrible sound. A big thankyou to all who were involved in the setting up of this event. PS: Bernie Goodfellow's Merlin single cut brought along by JHK was amazing.
