  1. Recently bought a Zon fretless here on bass.chat...fantastic bass (still with flatwounds, normally I use roundwounds but I'm leaving them on because it just sounds good) I have a fretless Wal too...hard to compare both of them
  2. It drew my attention because of those colours but apart from that it's still a versatile bass....My girlfriend will hate me for selling this one since she's very fond of the looks but I have too many basses and I find myself going back to the Ken Smith which brings out the "best" in me.
  3. Lots of Wood and Tronics action around here :-) I'll support that.. Had a couple of exchange offers but haven't decided yet..
  4. Selling this bass bought here on BC, comes with a padded gigbag and can be picked up or send (shipment included) A very funky and punchy bass with a variety of sounds (great Miller-ish slap for instance) and rather special to the eye. There used to be other pick up covers on the bass but now there are the more white ones (also made by the builder) I made a quick very crappy video but I guess you can filter your ears enough to get a grasp..(great view on two bikes !) Feel free to check my feedback here on BC and thx for looking.. Model: Chronos 4 Construction: Bolt On, 22 frets Body: European Ash Top: Quilted Maple Neck: 3pz Hard Maple Fingerboard: Bird's eye Maple Preamp: John East J retro (active/passive,Vol, Bal, 3 way vol + high treble + mid sweep, active/passive tone) PU: Kent Armstrong single coils
  5. Bought a Zon fretless from Sean and he shipped it to Belgium..Smooth transaction, very trustworthy. Sales like they should always be, thx !
  6. Sold a Yamaha to Jan..very smooth transaction ..Very trustworthy and highly recommended..Thx Jan !
  7. Bit more by George... Strikes me how distorted the basses often are but in the mix it works just fine...Great listen ! 0:00 Come Together (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001) 4:25 Something (Paul, Hofner 500/1) 7:27 Maxwell's Silver Hammer (George, Fender Bass VI) 10:55 Oh! Darling (Paul, Hofner 500/1) 14:28 Octopus' Garden (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001) 17:19 I Want You (She's So Heavy) (Paul, Hofner 500/1) 25:32 Here Comes The Sun (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001) 28:42 Because 31:55 You Never Give Me Your Money (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001) 35:12 Sun King (Paul, Hofner 500/1) 37:40 Mean Mr Mustard (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001) 38:47 Polythene Pam (Paul, Hofner 500/1) 39:58 She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (Paul, Hofner 500/1) 42:00 Golden Slumbers (George, Fender Bass VI) 43:27 Carry That Weight (George, Fender Bass VI) 45:03 The End (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001) 47:12 Her Majesty (Paul, Rickenbacker 4001, since it's actually a clip from the end of Mean Mr Mustard)
  8. Bought this a couple of months ago since I loved playing five string again and thought that an extra fretless 5 would be nice... It was especially exciting because it belonged to thé top session bass player around here in Belgium whom I saw several times live with this bass and I had no idea it was his bass which was actually for sale in that small garage of a PA firm. Plays really well and especially the Jaco-ish bridge sound is a treat and the sustain turned out to be great too.. The string spacing is a bit narrow for me (no idea what it is) but that wasn't the "problem". I just don't pick it up as much as I had expected and I prefer playing a four string fretless far more. Turned out there was no extra benefit in having a five string and I don't find myself composing songs on this bass either while other basses inspire me more. Comes with the Original case and shipment to the UK is included (local pickup is also possible but I live near Brussels). edit : Forgot to mention it but no PayPal please, not that I have something to hide but I had problems with their fees and exchange rates in the past during transactions here on BC and I would prefer not to use them again, sorry) Feel free to check my feedback here on bass.chat..I'm not really looking for trades but perhaps a funky five string could do the trick, you never know. Made a video to give an impression of the sound (the bass is passive and it says "Made in Taiwan"). Thx for looking.
  9. A fellow bass-player made this mash-up and he did an excellent job imo..The rest of his videos are a treat too . Thought it was too well played and original to go unnoticed.. (plays a mean guitar too)
  10. Something about them....like them a lot. Crazy since I'm a fusion fan but they have got this brutal and sincere energy which it's very catchy.
  11. I know it sounds cheesy but I'm so happy with your compliment.. I"ve written it before but I'm still recovering from that bicycle accident a year ago (more than 110 sessions for that splattered wrist in the meantime and still counting) and glad that the playing is still appreciated and "possible" (I still feel that I'm not the player I used to be and apparantly I will never heal completely but glad that I can do what I can do). Especially five string is very hard for me to do but I don't want to make it easy for myself.. Thanks again for the compliment, really pleased with it (whether the bass gets sold or not :-))
