  1. It’s been a while, but lockdown has really got me playing properly again. I had one of these about five years ago but (regrettably) let it go as part of a part ex on another P. I’ve been keeping half an eye on eBay for the last few months to see if one would come up again, and on Sunday night my wish was granted!

    A White, active USA SUB, delivered to my door in short order, and it’s full of unmistakable Stingray zing, and I love it! It’s basically immaculate apart from a bit of wear on the paint which is understandable for something of this age. Very happy.

  2. I'm an active podcast listener (my feed has about 15 weeklies in it) and I would definitely add this one. Echoing others I would also be willing to contribute if there aren’t enough offers already  

    Audio only is the only viable option IMO given the relative time suck video would represent. 

    I would also urge you to keep the episodes to 40-45mins and build out if the initial audience response suggests you should. Anything over an hour means two sittings for most folks, so you have a greater chance of drop-out/content being missed.

  3. All true. I had a complex about liking Precisions when I first started playing (they looked 'boring') so I was all about Jazz basses. Then I went to more gigs, where more people were playing P's and I was blown away - I've had some variation on a P as my main bass for the 14 years since.

    This is a great deal IMO. I have the exact same iPad - in fact I’m typing this reply on it. A genuine laptop killer!

    Cheers Cameron, I've tried to price it fairly! It's a fantastic device, I've used it for browsing, photo editing, recording demos and gaming and it stands up to all of it!

  5. Hello!

    Selling my iPad Pro 9.7" to fund an upgrade to my desktop.

    It's two years old, but in perfect condition as I've looked after it like a child! The screen has no marks whatsoever, and the body/case is pretty much like new barring a couple of small marks. It comes in the original box, with the original charger, but a brand new lightning cable. 

    I'm based in London and able to do a meet-up if you're local, otherwise I will ship within the UK at cost. Payment via PayPal only. 

    Full disclosure, this is also on eBay, first come first served (so if it goes on there before I have chance to message you back then I'm sorry!)






  6. Chris just bought my Bass VI, and what a pleasure it was to deal with him. Comms throughout have been excellent despite his demanding work schedule, and payment was a breeze. I would have no qualms whatsoever dealing with Chris again, and would heartily recommend him as a buyer to anyone on this forum.

    Enjoy the bass brother!

    I very much doubt I will be gigging, I imagine I would be playing quite a varied range however mainly rock etc and using some effects however mainly Chorus. I was considering a Peavey 115 however I decided against it as you could not make an effects loop. The Orange amp sounds nice to my ears however it is very large and seems very expensive for only 100 watts. I think I would probably be more suited to the Ashdown. But I know that sound is all down to the way you play, quality of the leads etc.....

    To be fair, if you don't plan on gigging any time soon then a practice amp around 20-40 watts will do the trick. I use a Fender Rumble 40 which is great, lightweight but loud enough for bedroom practice and playing with quieter drummers.

    Peavey gear is rock solid and will last for years. If you can deal with the weight, then it's a worthwhile investment.

    I've used Ashdown gear before and it was perfectly fine, and I don't have any personal experience with Orange bass gear.

  8. Hey there, welcome to the forum.

    You'll find a whole bunch of people will be more than willing to share their views with you, but we probably need to know a little more about you, and how you'll be using your amp to make our suggestions useful!

    I'll get you started. What kind of music are you going to be playing? Are you gigging, or just jamming at home/with friends?

    Assuming you are willing/able to send, any idea of a rough price of postage?


    Hey there,

    Roughly £15-£20 in the UK - I need to stress that I don't have a hard case, so it would be shipped in padded gig bag, plenty of bubble wrap, encased in a shed load of cardboard 😊
