  1. Thanks, @John Fox Bass- just sent a message via your site.
  2. Does anybody know whether or not Cog Effects will start making pedals again? I really hope so - I've been really keen to try one of their T-16 octave pedals!

      This has been discussed a few times over the past 18 months or so and it would appear that Tom is not making pedals at this time. I’ve tried contacting him directly regarding issues with a custom pedal I have, but have had no response.

      Ah, okay - thanks for the heads up. I've tried getting in contact via their website and FB page but to no avail. Appreciate your response.

      If I hear anything I’ll let you know.

  3. @binky_bassAll good! Appreciate the interest! And get some pick n mix (if that still exists...) with that pound 😅
  4. @N64Lover Ha! Thank you for your interest all the same 🙂
  5. Thank you, both 🙂 It's a lovely instrument for sure.
  6. * THIS BASS HAS NOW SOLD* Hello everybody, For sale is my beautiful Fodera Imperial Elite 5-string. I ordered this bass in early 2013 and took delivery of it in early/ mid 2014. This is an incredibly versatile instrument, one that I've had the great pleasure of playing at home and abroad over the last seven years. Whilst it's always challenging to accurately describe the sound of an instrument, this bass strikes a really nice balance between sounding deep and fat, yet still articulate. One thing that I've always been really impressed by is the mid-range of this bass; even in large and noisy bands, the sound of the bass really manages to cut through, which is always nice! Relatedly, the onboard preamp is really powerful: in no particular order, there is a stacked volume/ tone knob, a pickup pan, knobs for adjusting bass, mid and treble, an active/ passive switch, a coil tap switch and a mid-range switch. As you can see, there are lots of parameters that can be tweaked... Visually, the maple burl top is really stunning in person; I've tried my best to capture it in the pictures - hopefully it comes across on screen! The bass also comes with the Fodera Teardrop case (as shown in the accompanying pictures). Whilst I have taken very good care of this instrument, there are a few light dings/ scratches, which I've done my best to capture in the pictures (specifically, in pictures 6-10). Other than that, the bass is in good condition. On the subject of pictures, if you would like any additional shots taking, please just let me know. I will work with the buyer to find a suitable method of getting the bass to them, although any shipping costs will be at the buyer's expense. Given the price and weight of the instrument (which, incidentally, is 10.8lbs/ 4.9kg), I would be more than happy to discuss hand-delivering the instrument (depending on the buyer's location) or finding a mutually convenient place in which to hand over the instrument, if appropriate. Any questions about delivery, or anything else related to this bass, please feel free to drop me a message. Please note, I am not interested in trades at this point in time. Specs (as taken from the instrument's Newborn page on the Fodera site): Body Woods Imperial (MG Shape) Walnut Body Alder Tone Block Maple Burl Top (Solid) Neck Woods Madagascar Kingwood Fingerboard 3-pc. Hard Rock Maple Mother-of-Pearl Dot Inlays Construction Specs Birth Date – April 2014 Neck-Through Construction 34″ Scale Length 5 String Configuration (17.5mm Spacing) 26 Frets (Large) Electronics Options Fodera / Pope Custom 3-Band Preamp Fodera / Duncan Dual Coils Matt Garrison Control Layout Thanks for reading!
  7. Good luck with the sale, man. It's a beautiful bass!
  8. Hello. Here is the second bass that I am selling: my beloved 1975 Fender Precision. I bought this bass for £2,000 back in February 2013 from Nick's Guitars ([url="http://www.nicksguitars.com/"]http://www.nicksguitars.com/[/url]) and it has been my go-to bass ever since. I bought it, as you see here in the pictures, with no pick-up or bridge covers and no original case (I actually bought it without any case at all). I am selling it [b]WITH[/b] the Mono Vertigo case you see in the pictures below. Everything on this bass is original: the pots, tuning pegs, bridge, pick ups and scratchplate, in addition to the body and neck. Since being in possession of it I have restrung it with flats and that is all. This bass has a bottom end so pronounced it would make Beyoncé blush. I've used this bass on jazz standards and blues gigs and it works perfectly: playing around with the tone knob and plucking the strings close to the neck give it a pretty convincing upright sound. But this bass really comes into its own when playing Motown and soul music, as one would expect. It has that classic round and percussive sound at its core with sufficient midrange to ensure that it doesn't get too muddy. I've purposefully kept the action fairly high because I personally quite like the sound that's produced from really digging into the strings. The condition of the bass is fairly good. There are a couple of little dings here and there (I've tried to show this in some of the pictures) and on the reverse of the body there are 3 mystery circles... Other than that, the frets are in good shape, the input socket is quiet and the intonation is good. If you would like more pictures then just ask and I can send some more your way. At this time I am looking for money only (just to reiterate: I am [b]NOT[/b] looking for trades). Bank transfer would be ideal although I am willing to talk with potential buyers about a payment method that works for them. I am based in Leeds and would welcome local pickup, or I am willing to travel to potential buyers (within reason). If the bass needs to be shipped then I am willing to split the cost of the shipping with the buyer. Any questions then please just let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for your time.
  9. [quote name='molan' timestamp='1397384702' post='2423352'] These high end Zons are quite simply some of the best instruments I've ever played and the cost of them has risen considerably over the last 2-3 years. I'd estimate the wait time would be 18 months plus for a new one too! This also has to be one of the prettiest ones I've ever seen [/quote] Thanks for the kind words, Barrie. Yes, I've managed to play a few over the last two or three years and they are just wonderful instruments. They are also really pretty instruments and this one is certainly no exception.
