  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  2. Sorry, it’s been a while since I checked in here... Would be good to hear from someone who has one, but I guess no one on here has taken the $160, plus P&P, plunge yet. I’ll check out the talkbass link now. thanks y’all.
  3. Yeah I’m not too bothered/bogged down by the science of this design... and there’s plenty of discussion around transference of energy and how that affects sustain etc. I’m more interested in how it feels to play with the strings like that and I’d like to know if the string ball-end cup (saddle contact point) can go low enough, without the need for a neck shim, for low action. Also, do the not-a-saddle posts rotate (however slightly) when you pluck a string? I’d like to think there’s a way to lock them down.
  4. Does anyone have a Ray Ross saddle-less bridge? I’ve watched all the setup and advertising videos, but there aren’t any proper consumer reviews yet. Some real-world feedback would be great! Cheers, Joe
  5. 100% agree with you about the clear and honest reproduction. That’s pretty much word for word what I said after I first used my Spartan and VK 210 cab. My bass sounds like... umm... wait for it... MY BASS, which I don’t think I’ve ever experienced in all the amps/cabs/combos I’ve tried and owned. I was drawn to the simplicity of the Spartan. In a world of ever more complicated bass related gadgets and gizmos with trillions of customisable options. I just want to plug in and play with minimal faff and distraction. Would anyone like to pay me to write a full and proper review? 😉
  6. You’re asking the wrong guy... but I think so yes! That’s the idea in the combo cab. I’ve just had a message from someone who’s interested, so may have sold the head and 210 cab. I’ll update as soon as I know more. I’m in Norwich.
  7. Super clean, full working order set of Hipshot Ultralites. 1/2 inch post size These were bought from BassDirect a few years back. They’re £25 each to buy new. Exact measurements are shown in the images. Thanks for looking! Call or text or BC message if you’re interested. Joe 07752332910
  8. Set of used Delano Jazz pickups. These were £200 new from Bass Direct a couple of years ago. Served me well in an American Jazz. I’m selling the bass so took these pups out. http://www.delano.de/products.html?&cHash=c874c8908f&tx_smtdelano_pi1[series]=5&tx_smtdelano_pi1[strings]=5&tx_smtdelano_pi1[system]=34 They sound great, work well etc. The Delano foil logo has started to wear off, as you can see in the pics, but they still function just fine. Gimme a shout if you’re interested. Thanks for looking. Call or text if you’d prefer, Joe 07752332910
  9. Thanks Frank. That’s what I need, a definitive answer! I haven’t bought any batteries yet. Still researching, and have messaged PJB to ask for recommended UK battery suppliers. They have a list for US companies in the instruction manual, but not for UK suppliers. Joe ps. This wasn’t my topic originally. I was just hoping to find out how to connect an external battery without having to turn the thing over, unscrew the battery plate, remove the dead (50% depleted) battery, etc etc I’m getting closer to answers
  10. Yes that’s exactly what I’ve learned. An automotive battery will work, but as you say they are not designed to be discharged. Hopefully a couple of these from Screwfix will do the trick... https://www.screwfix.com/p/sealed-lead-acid-battery-12v-7ah-100-x-65-x-151mm/38315?tc=WA3&ds_kid=92700024372740006&ds_rl=1248181&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1249481&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2tegqayz2gIVir_tCh3uDwKBEAQYASABEgJPmvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CLPv48-ts9oCFZfhGwodRxsBCA one as a spare for when the other is at 50% hahahhaha
  11. The recommended battery type for the PJBriefase is a Sealed Lead Acid Gel. According to what I’ve been reading... there’s no blanket answer to the question about discharge levels for all lead-acid-gel battery cells (unless I’ve totally misunderstood). Some boast a full discharge is possible, while others say it’s best to only discharge around halfway to get the most cycles. But how would you know what halfway was when you’re midway through your busking blues jam? Without taking your voltmeter out with you, I guess you’d have to charge it to full, then run it completely flat with a stopwatch to time it. Then you’d know what halfway was in time. Even that wouldn’t work because it depends what you’re playing (lower notes take more battery power right?), how loud the amp is set and several other factors to do with things I don’t want to understand... it’s far too complicated. I just want to play my bleedun bass!!!
  12. Thank you. Good knowledge. Good logic. Thank you. Joe
