  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
  13. Greg... did you ever find an answer to this question? How’s the PJBriefcase holding up after all these years? I’m going to do some busking so I’d probably like to have a spare battery on hand.
  14. Yes I get notifications within BassChat when logged in, but emails never used to work when getting replies to an ad post or private message. I just end up checking back every so often by logging in to make sure I’ve not missed something.
  15. £200 including recorded postage within the U.K. Hello and thanks for looking! This is a great “little” amplifier that’s only seen one gig. The rest of the time it’s been part of my practice setup in my living room, so never been worked hard. The one time I did take it out was to a small pub gig and it performed just fine through a TC 112... which it turned out was an 8ohm cab, so I wasn’t getting all the potential power from the 4ohm, 200 watt head! DOH! Anyway. Needless to say it’s in excellent condition (see pics), and would be fine for someone in need of a very compact amp head. It could easily fit in your hand bag Original box and paperwork included. There’s a snug (proper) fitting IEC power supply that I cannot claim is original, but it could be, that is also included. Selling due to getting a combo amp for practice instead. Call or text if you’re interested. Or message me on BC. I’m not currently looking for trades, thank you. Thanks, Joe 07752332910
  16. STILL AVAILABLE... RS112 - £195 (£220 delivered) Hello, and thanks for looking! RS112, 8 Ohm cab. This cab works perfectly, but I’ve sold the rest of my TC rig due to moving on to another setup, so I no longer have a use for it. I’ve only owned this cab for a year or so, bought it new from Thomann, and it’s seen minimal use... only been out to a handful of pub gigs. There’s a few scratches to the anti-slip Tolex finish, but the speaker functions as it should as an extension cab. Included is a custom made Roqsolid cover and a speakon cable. I have the original box. Gimme a call if you’re interested. Or send me a message on BC. If anyone is in the area (Norwich/Norfolk) and wants to arrange a viewing then please get in touch. Not currently in need of any gear, so no trades thank you. Joe 07752332910 SOLD RH450 - £295 (£315 delivered) SOLD RS210C - £295 (£325 delivered)
  17. Nice one. I’ll keep an eye out and be in touch. thanks
  18. Hello! Are you positive about not posting this Briefcase? I’ve posted much larger and heavier gear before without incident. I’ll understand if you just don’t want to though :-) If you aren’t totally against the idea, could you pop over some photos if you have them yet? Thanks, Joe
  19. ... time is also money though. I may get a few quid extra back overall, but it would take me the best part of a day to refit it all. Swings and roundabouts I guess.
  20. You might be right! I'll leave it another few days first. Thanks for the advice! 😀
  21. Blimey! Can't believe this hasn't been nabbed yet. If you could cut it in half I'd take a 112 to add to my 210LNT and Spartan!😉
