  1. Unfortunately I'm not in a position to be shipping it anywhere, collection is very much preferred. Thanks 😊
  2. Regrettably I have to sell my beloved Barefaced cab. This is of the first generation of Barefaced cabs, and has been used for many gigs - so it is showing signs of age, although it sounds wonderful. I'm only selling as I need to fund my masters in Australia, and I can't feasibly bring it with me. It is a 15" and an 8" speaker in one box, and it is damn loud and punchy. At the time of production it was the Barefaced flagship model. I play it with a Terror Bass and it kills. It is excellent in a loud rocknroll band and a very loud ska band. Areas that are showing wear are the handles - they are beginning to wear out, but are still functional. The cloth is also sagging just a little near the top of the cab - I have included lots of pics to illustrate this. It's rough and ready for rock n roll. I'm not in the UK at the moment, so I can arrange for buyer to view / pickup at my brother's studio in Southampton. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask and I'll reply as soon as I can. Asking for £490 but open to offers. Cheers, Zak
  3. Sadly today Toots Hibbert passed away. I am heartbroken.
  4. My new COVID style video. Took months to organise!! Ska counts
  5. He did, and still does! Toots, Gil Scott Heron, the list goes on. Such a legend. 84 years old and switched right on.
  6. From Bob Marley to Duarte. I think I know which he would describe as career defining!
  7. Thought you guys would appreciate this - I put together another Ska lockdown video, but recruited the GREAT Larry McDonald for Djembe duties.
  8. It was SO much fun to produce and play on this one, with family and friends, plus some legends. Larry McDonald (percussionist for Bob Marley, Gil Scott Heron, Toots, Lee Scratch Perry and countless others) kindly agreed to be a part of this, for the sake of making music. David Hillyard of The Slackers was also humble enough to join us again. Ah man, I wish this band could play together in real life.
  9. Ahhh, beautiful. I've just been catching up with everyone's lockdown videos, and I'm glad to find these.
  10. It sounds incredible - super growly and aggressive in tone bypassed mode, super deep and phat in tone on mode. Silent in off mode!
  11. Ordered a custom Jazz bass loaded control plate from KiOgon, and his work was flawless. Super accommodating and great guy to deal with. Thank you!
  12. A 1993 MIJ I picked up in Bangkok for roughly £200. The pots had fallen apart, a few dings, but otherwise good. Good neck, with some really nice flame in the maple. I spoke to basschat's KiOgon about some new electronics, and he whipped me up a 62 3-hole control plate with a pickup selector (neck, series, parallel, bridge) and tone switch (capacitor, bypass, kill) and maaaaan she is singing. Whacked on an omega bridge and some new hybrid slinkies and I have myself a solid funk machine. Who knew that series mode on a jazz was so good? I almost didn't include it, as I was on a quest for simplicity. Also, no volume knob is fun - the bass is either on or off, fun mode or rest mode. My old school radio knobs ended up not quite fitting, so I'm now looking for knobs, but otherwise, I'm delighted. What do ya reckon??
  13. I'm loving these guys right now. Ska counts, right??
  14. Why is a Fender P more expensive than a Squier P? They look the same
