  1. Ahh, that's great! I loved that Bass, but too heavy for my old back. Remember when you wanted to buy it and I asked how old you were?! 🤣🤣
  2. Bought a couple of nice Levy straps from Dave. Top chap to deal with. Cheers, Mart.
  3. Just sold a neck to Chris that I originally bought from him! The curse of Basschat marketplace. Top lad, as ever. Cheers, Mart.
  4. Bought from a fellow basschatter a couple of years ago. A very late '77/early '78 factory fretless Fender Precision. (Serial no says 1977, neck and pickup dates say 1978).... In great condition for a 42 year old Bass, the finish has sunk into the grain in parts on the body, a few little marks here and there, and some lacquer chips on the headstock, but no major dings anywhere. Judging by the crazing in the headstock lacquer, I'd say it's been finished in nitro cellulose. The scratchplate has a slight warp in it, which isn't unusal for this era. The nut has been changed to brass, a long time ago from the looks of it, and likewise, the bridge barrels have also been replaced with brass items. Other than those, and some of the scratchplate and pickup screws, this is a very original instrument. The fingerboard has just been reshot and dressed to the correct radius by Mike Smith Guitars, Southport, and is a lovely piece of highly grained Rosewood, in perfect condition, that plays like new. Weight is typical Fender fretless fare, I'd say between 9 and 10 pounds. Not as heavy as the maple necked one I sold on here a few years ago, but meaty enough. A semi rigid case is included with the Bass, but for an extra £60, I'll throw in a Hiscox instead. Happy to courier, (I estimate £30-35 with insurance extra), or any buyer may collect. Any questions, please ask. Cheers. Mart
  5. Kev bought my NS Double Strings. Immediate payment, top Basschatter. Cheers, Mart.
  6. Bought a brand new Omega bridge from Mike. Super fast delivery, top geezer. Cheers, Mart.
  7. I tried to be a full time muso between 1994 and 2000, with limited success. I eventually packed in my full time job in Oct 2002, and joined a gigging band that was out 5 nights a week minimum. Ended up doing 9 tours of the states, played europe numerous times, played in Russia ( I can laugh about that experience now, but at the time....). Quit that band in 2013, struggled for a year while I reestablished myself as a jobbing player, am now caught up in a load of tribute band stuff, not really my thing, but the bills get paid... Even though it's been a financial struggle at times, I wouldnt change anything, except that I would have done it in 1984 and not waited until 2002....
  8. Brand new set of Double Bass strings, 3/4 length. SOLD. From their website..... "Designed in partnership with Ned Steinberger and NS Design, each string is designed to enhance the expressive range of tone sought after by the most discerning players. Full set, (E A D G). NS traditional Double Bass Strings are constructed and tensioned for a warm tone with great bow response. Designed primarily for electric upright bass, these medium tension strings feature a stranded steel core which provides optimum playability and produces a clear, warm tone. All D’Addario strings are designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA to the most stringent quality controls in the industry". Any questions, please ask. Cheers, Mart.
  9. One set of used Pirastro Chromcor strings, I'm 99% certain they are Chromcors, due to the green silks at both ends. I've compared the strings to my Spirocore mediums, and I'd say these are also medium. Can't age them, as they arrived on a Bassix EUB, I picked up this week. I know the previous owner hadn't used the Bass for at least three years... They were pretty dead at first, but have come back to life somewhat after a few hours playing, the windings at bridge and tuning machines all look solid, except for the A, where you can see a slight unwinding over the bridge and at the tuning machine..... Priced at £30.00, which includes UK postage. Cheers, Mart.
  10. I used an original Gage Realist for years, with good results. But after seeing Stanley Clarke, I switched to an Underwood, and am much happier with the overall tone and especially, the clarity......
  11. ON HOLD WHILST THE BASS IS AWAY FOR FINGERBOARD MAINTENANCE. Breaks my heart letting this one go, but it doesn't get used and I have a new kitchen to fit. Bought from a fellow basschatter a couple of years ago. A very late '77/early 1978 (Serial no says 1977, neck and pickup dates say 1978) factory fretless Fender Precision. In great condition for a 42 year old Bass, the finish has sunk into the grain in parts on the body, a few little marks here and there,and some lacquer chips on the headstock, but no major dings anywhere.

  12. NOW SOLD............................................... UE 900s Quad driver isolating earphones. Although not designed as in ear monitors, that's exactly what I (and many others) use these earphones for. The quad driver system (high, low, and two for Bass), coupled with the 3 way active crossover system, gives the user a great in ear experience at a fraction of the cost of a full on pro sytem. In very good condition, boxed, with all accessories (different size ear buds, cleaning kit, etc). Priced at £125 which includes uk postage. Specs: "Ultimate Ears 900 Noise-Isolating Earphones deliver sound that rivals our professional Custom Stage Monitors, thanks to four-armature speakers and a three-way crossover in a universal fit. You'll hear a wide sound stage with soul-satisfying bass, heavenly highs and a crisp, piano-like timbre. The unique UE Sound Signature faithfully recreates the original recording-and adds a low-end kick. Five silicon and three Comply foam ear cushions, each designed with a large-bore opening, ensure audio is delivered cleanly. Two detachable, braided cables-one with a mic and controls and one without-let you swap out the standard cable for the cable-plus-mic and controls option. And ear loops offer a secure, comfortable fit you can wear for a long time-even while exercising." Logitech UE 900s IEM Specifications: Input sensitivity: 101.2 dB @ 1 kHz, 50mW Frequency response: 20 Hz – 20 kHz Noise Isolation: -26 decibels of ambient stage noise.
