  1. My thoughts exactly !!! Where is £8k when you need it !!!
  2. Love these - used to have the Nirvana Black Oil $$ 5. Great bass - the finish marks really easily though!
  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  4. These are great basses, and imo this one is outstanding value for money - if only it had one more string !! GLWTS
  5. Fantastic basses and this is one of the nicer burl tops I’ve seen. Absolute bargain imo !!
  6. These are amazing things - love mine! The noise cancelling (which you can switch on and off) is highly effective and great if you’re travelling/commuting.
  7. Wow - great value for money. I love my TC Electronic! I got replacement knobs direct from TCE for the same reason mentioned, and they’ve been fine since, so don’t let that put you off. GLWTS
  8. Yes, genuinely fanless, but having only been used at home I don’t know whether it would get very hot - I remember checking with Laney before buying it and they said the cooling is via the internal heat sinks. I’ve never used the DI so can’t say whether it is noiseless - but there was very little noise via the speakon cable to the Vanderkley cab. Cab now sold so not sure how to test the DI - any ideas on that? I might be able to get some info on signal/noise ratio off Laney?
  9. Excellent condition Vanderkley cab which I’m selling as we’ve moved fully to IEM. The full specs can be found here: https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Vanderkley_EXT112.html if you’re looking at this you probably know what high quality speakers these are. Steel grill, tough carpet cover and robust corner protection although this one has remained mainly at home. can meet up around eastern half of M25 or here near Chelmsford. these are £600 new plus £50 for a cover (ridiculous! - my cover is unbranded) so get yourself a great deal here - why not add my Laney Head Amp also on here to go with it !!
  10. ****reduced to £200 ONO***** All boxed up ready to go! This is a great (powerful) little amp for home or stage use. if you’re a bit like me and hate noise - good news!! This unit has no cooling fan!! excellent condition with all original packaging. Price includes UK postage or you can collect for a £25 discount.. my main amp is a TCE staccato51 and I’m moving to a combo due to space at home now. All the details can be found here: https://www.andertons.co.uk/bass-dept/bass-amps/bass-amp-heads/solid-state-bass-amp-heads/richter-bass-head-500w-rms-compressor-10-band-graphic-eq-di Hard to beat with 500w at the price and has served me well.
  11. Update - sent to Bass Direct for commission sale.
  12. Hi sorry for the delay. I’m not sure but it is identical (apart from not being wide spacing) in terms of spec (I think) to this: https://reverb.com/item/3117434-spector-ns5h2-wide-string-spacing-2015-spalted-maple maybe some Spector experts on here will know?
  13. Also a great bit of kit for home recording your bass - I used one through lockdown to record bass parts 👍🏻👍🏻 This is great value for money.
  14. This is an absolute bargain for a Shuker. Love my series 2. GLWTS.
  15. Lovely - I had the same bass some years back and like and idiot sold it! As said already, it sounds nothing like a thumb but has a unique but still Warwick like tone. I see like mine this one has had the nut upgraded to the brass version which gives more zing! The other nice thing about these is that they are usually quite light. if you decide to sell in future, give me a shout 😂😂
  16. That is the most beautiful single cut I have ever seen - gorgeous!! GLWTS
  17. Agree with @hooky_lowdown - Yamaha make really decent basses and incredible price points. The think I've found (having owned a few over the years) is that they seem to have nailed down the quality control really well, so the general build fit & finish is usually good. I have found them sometimes to be a bit on the heavy side. One of my very early basses was a Yamaha TRB5 (first series) and I thought the bridge on that was brass (I may be wrong) and the sustain was excellent. The only thing often found on them was not so great jack inputs, easily fixed by switching to a better quality component. So have you swapped rhythm guitar for good and come over to the dark side? If you have, just be aware that you will never appear in any music videos !!!! 😂😂 We are invisible !!
  18. Oh, and I forgot to mention that for a Fender 5 string, it weighs a very sensible 9.0 lbs !!!
  19. Just got this - used to have one in natural a few years but sold it for some reason !! Have always liked the black ones as it makes the large pickguard less obvious. i Just love the tinted neck and gold coloured block inlays. Looks mint in the pictures, but in fact its nicely "road-worn" for its 10 years, with little dings, chips, scratches here and there which will make me less worried about putting the first mark on it! Set up was poor when I got it, so have adjusted the truss, all the saddles, intonation etc and it plays really nicely. Swapped out the completely dead strings for a partially used set I had to give a bit more brightness - plan to put Elixirs on when I can get some at a sensible price! I know there are mixed thoughts on the pre-am/pickups (I'm assuming these are stock for now) but it sounds good, and there is no discernible single coil hum and no apparent earth/grounding issues - might be a different matter when recording or on a fully lit stage etc. Tone controls as most of you will know are treble/bass and boost/boost only. The bass boost is ridiculous, but set at about a 1/3rd it gives a nice tone. Pondering whether to replace the chrome knobs with fender-style black ones (the original would have been the unusual half and half which I'm not keen on).
  20. Ooh very nice indeed 👍🏻👍🏻 I love that owners can properly look after the oiled/waxed finishes unlike the gloss stuff!
  21. Nice bass & Nice chops!!! GLWTS 👍🏻
