Total Watts

  1. Mine is one of the most early ones and afaik made in indonesia, not in japan. Not that it really matters. Love the finish on yours!
  2. Amazing basses. Pre-amp hisses a bit when you emphasize the treble frequencies. The dual truss rods are really easy to adjust. Mine came with very thin strings on but now has a pack of Fodera custom steels. I did have to adjust the rods accoringly. This thing plays as good as any boutique brand instrument. Total winner of a bass!
  3. Why sell this one of all my basses? The other 6 string (Yamaha JP sig) I own has wider string spacing which I prefer.
  4. Here's the deal you've been waiting for. I am selling the beast. Why? Because I want a new 3D graphics card for my gaming PC and own too many basses. Everything on this bass works as intended. Two things I should however mention: 1. When you take off the strings the neck bends backwards. This is normal. With strings on the neck is fine and plays really light. Currently there's a pack of fresh Fodera Custom Steels on it. 2. The frets from 1990 do have some wear on them. When you look closely there's dents. It still plays really well though. For this simple reason I chose not to replace them yet. Asking price: 1800 euro. WHAT? Yes. 1800 euro. Because of the neck bending backwards may scare you and the frets being older. If everything was in mint condition the price would be around 2200-2500. It comes with the original Warwick gigbag and if it needs to be shipped I will throw in a (Fender) hardcase. Not shipping outside of Europe and I am hesitant about shipping to the U.K. since Brexit. You will likely have to add around 20% or more to the price for VAT. Ask for shipping costs. I will use UPS since they come pick it up from my home and are the only company willing to ship bass guitars from the Netherlands. Cheers! Marco
  5. Both B7K and VMT did not tick any boxes with me, B7K being fizzy and VMT drowning in the mix it is an inaudible effect between guitars. The Alpha-Omega beat both in my case but even that got replaced by the much better for more classic punkrock sounding Tech21 YYZ pedal. I concluded Darkglass is for metalheads only after years of owning several of their pedals.
  6. So much besides the point stuff going on debating wether or not it is to be considered a Sadowsky. Only valid question is is it a good bass for its price compared to others in the same range. ... and that has been answered quite extensively a while back in this thread. This makes me wonder what point some people are trying to make other then being negative about stuff without actually playing one of these basses.
  7. Just wanted to hear the jazz version. Seems to be nice. If I had to choose a series within the Fender range though I'd feel lost they keep tossing around new nicknames for the same old series with VERY minor changes. But then again how does one keep marketing a product that's always been there?
  8. Guess again. 16k-26k euro is what I have seen. Besides that the Fodera no doubt has a more responsive and warmer sounding character than any Warwick will ever have. I do play Warwicks and they have their place but are no competition for Fodera.
  9. Love that notion. Expensive gear is largely played by shoe gazing lawyers and dentists who do not belong on stage. Hahaha. Oh and by me. The bored IT dude who believes more is more and less is less. Either way, It is perfectly possible to set up an fxboard with analog stompboxes and still have your tones available quickly. The guitarist can use a looper like Boss MS-3 for instance. But also keep entertaining people in between songs. This what a frontman does. Any band without a real frontman is boring af.
  10. Hoi Maarten from Hoorn. Just around the corner from where you are.
  11. Which has me thinking should I switch to a Quad Cortex. The board I posted costs roughly the same as a QC unit.
  12. Band said "Let's add Plugin Baby to the setlist". ... Goodbye minimalistic approach. Four pedals are used in that one so I might as well go for full functionality within the tiny footprint.
  13. Stop posting Wal basses for sale please. Thank you. 😁

     

    I could afford one but don't want to spend that much on a bass. The wife would skin me alive. Stop tempting me.

      Hahah. I am thankfully in the only dreaming zone for these glorious hunks of wood. I get what you mean though: 'Another bass? Don't you already have one, and a guitar?'
