    Barefaced post-sales support

    Problem solved (I think). Only had to go as far as the speakon connectors: one of the yellow clips was lose: two minutes of gentle crimping with some pliers and it all seems to be functioning correctly again.

    Barefaced post-sales support

    Alex has just replied to my e-mail in person. I shall try what he suggests and see!
  3. I've got me a compact from 2013 that's been a pretty stable companion. It's developed a fault where by the sound drops in & out and varies from clean to distorted. I don't think I've done anything particularly nasty to it in the past couple of weeks. Two questions: has anyone had a problem similar to this? and, has anyone got experience in post-sales support from barefaced ? Next gig is the 17th November so I need to get something sorted pretty quickly...

    Yet another good review. Bought a bass off PJ. Good comms, arranged everything nicely. Seemed like a really nice bloke too. Cheers mate!

    IEM as ear protection.

    WRT the umbilical cord: I recently constructed a 2 cable snake using two 8m cables bought from ebay (1 instrument cable, one a headphone extension), 8m of 10mm expandable braided tubing and two bits of heat shrink to stop the braid uncoiling. I got the idea from a youtube video of a pit bassist who had made one for himself. If you're interested I'll dig out the links. I've only tried it once (in rehearsal) into Ultimate Ears moulded plugs: it resulted in DI-ing the bass and micing the guitar so I could get a balanced level as they were a bit occlusive. I'll let you know how it pans out live.
  6. Have an "oooooohhhhh, sexxxxyyyy" bump on me.

    Bought my Ashbory. Good communications. Paid. You know, he did the good stuff well. "Deal with confidence" indeed.
  10. Guidum, I've just had an offer, I'll pm you if it falls through.

  12. *** SOLD *** Up for grabs is my Ashbory Mini Bass. Comes in a fetching Red with gig-bag, packet of slyde-rite (talcum powder), spare new-in-the-packed official E-A-D strings and two off-brand G-strings (well, one bit of silicon long enough to make 2 - the G string is notorious for snapping in the gig bag so I bought enough to make several but haven't had an issue since putting this string one). Bought in the USA from LargeSound.com and imported sometime around 2008, it has been in my collection ever since. Gigged twice, rehearsed with a couple of times. Played sporadically. Reason for selling is that it has lived on the wall for the last year and it should be moved on. It's fun to play, I just don't have a band that utilises it any more. It's located in Chertsey and I can deliver to Woking or Central London. Postage is possible - ping me a message and we can negotiate. Sale preferred. £140 £120 £100 is the price. The history of the Ashbory bass is here if you're interested. https://photos.app.goo.gl/QxFvuJ2TpJFuymVp2
