  1. Had this bass for a number of years without realising its potential. In its stock form, it is unremarkable. However, it is cheap, and customisable. Tried many pickup changes, but it was still a little dull even with a) Wizard Thumper P - no longer available b) DiMarzio Ultra Jazz J c) TI flats What made the difference was a bridge change to something more substantial. I my case, I had an old style Warwick Rockbass bridge lying about. The change was huge and - THIS IS SIGNIFICANT - there is no infamous dead spot on the G string at all. Conclusion: it is a fundamentally good bass once the bridge has been replaced.

  3. I guess Barefaced would make one up. It's a £40 option when ordering.
  4. Bought this last summer, but have no current use for it as I am not gigging at present, and will use my old Eden cab when I do. I am sure everyone is familiar with these lightweight cabs, but here is a link http://barefacedbass.com/product-range/Super-Compact.htm Steel grill. Padded cover from Hot Covers included in the price. Excellent condition Photos if requested.
  5. Sadly not this month. I am attending a personal development course. Yes, it is well overdue, I know
  6. Having moved back to Essex, I rather miss the Fat Lils jam

  10. [quote name='harril' timestamp='1464619826' post='3060838'] Hi Guys, another Oxford Bassist here! Just thought you may be interested to know about the Electric Jam every other Thursday at The Catherine Wheel, Sandford-On-Thames, Oxford. It's mostly Blues & Rock based, but any style is welcome! Come and have some fun! [/quote] I was there this week.
  11. I have a follow-up to my original post [color=#141823][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]A few years back I bought an Overwater Tanglewood Classic Jazz. The first thing I noticed were that the electrics were weak...very low output pickups. Having decided to change these out, I swapped in a simple jazz loom, and installed some Entwistle neo pickups. The volume improvements were immediate. The tone improvements were not. Changes of strings didn't help. It seemed as if there was too much power...clanging overt[/font][/color][color=#141823][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]ones...fret clank...horrible. I recently set-up a friends 1980's Jap Jazz, on the face of it, a similar bass, but the contrast was stark. I decided that I would sell the Overwater, but at least do some basic work on it first: Install & cut a new nut, as the previous strings had been very heavy gauge etc.[/font][/color] [color=#141823][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]I changed the strings out for some old roundwounds, but the problem persisted. As a final measure, I wondered if the problem lay with the neo bridge pickup, a very high output design, with very high magnetic pull. This turned out to be the issue. It was not the output, it was the pull. Once I switched it for a more conventional design (in this case a hum-cancelling pickup from an old Peavey Zodiac) the bass was transformed. No clanking, just much better. Probably a keeper now. Lovely with Chromes. Now setup with a Wilkinson split and a Peavey bridge pickup. [/font][/color] [color=#141823][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]The lesson for me was the neo pickups are not suitable for all instruments, and careful matching is needed.[/font][/color]
  12. [quote name='osborne900' timestamp='1461684959' post='3036748'] Did this sell? [/quote] So sorry. I neglected to edit my original post
  13. [quote name='fleabag' timestamp='1461531387' post='3035522'] Great fun ...good to meet everyone and to get a chance To thwack the drums Love that miller jazz , mark [/quote] Excellent thwacking too.
  14. [quote name='FinnDave' timestamp='1461531040' post='3035515'] I certainly had fun, and after sitting with an ice pack on my wrist for half an hour when I got home, surprisingly pain free, too! [/quote] Serves you right. You worked harder than me.
