  2. Used Leo Quan Badass II bridge for sale. [b]NOW £50 SHIPPED - FINAL PRICE[/b] I've just returned my Precision to stock and as such this is no longer required. The saddles haven't been filed so you can adjust it to suit your style and your own bass. This listing doesn't include mounting screws, but you can use the ones from your existing BBOT. Price now includes shipping, or if you're in London I'm happy to meet up within reasonable distance (I'm based in Ealing, work in Paddington) Payment preferred via BT or PayPal.

  3. Only ever played one once, but I remember thinking it was a great bass.
  4. Would be good to know how you get on if you pick up a BA108 - I'm about to return the second BA110 I've had in as many weeks - the input went on the first and I seem to be getting a really horrible resonant distortion (even at low volumes) from the second. A proliferation of threads on TalkBass seem to suggest it's a known fault with the 110, so I'm considering a 108 as I'm emotionally attached to the Ampeg sound. EDIT: Hijacking the thread a little, but saves starting a new topic on the same subject - anyone have any experience with the Ashdown Tourbus range?
  5. [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/215995-nbd-squier-vm-precision-updated-with-audio-samples/"]http://basschat.co.uk/topic/215995-nbd-squier-vm-precision-updated-with-audio-samples/ I[/url]'ve just uploaded some audio samples of my VM P-bass
  6. I'm out and about today, but when I get back I'll record some quick samples for you all :-) EDIT: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/86001412/VM.mp3 Here you are. Clips are in this order: 1. Tone full open, finger style 2. Tone full open, pick 3. Tone full off, finger style 4. Tone full off, pick All straight into Audacity through an M-Audio USB, no additional tweaks.
  7. So, after a number of years playing my Active Precision, I've taken the plunge and picked up what I consider to be a REAL Precision for the first time in my bass playing career. The build and finish of this thing is phenomenal - it's easily as well built as the Active Precision. The tone is exactly what I've been looking for, lots of punch and a little bit of bite. While I was waiting for it to arrive I was toying with the idea of replacing the bridge, but there is no need - this thing has bags of sustain. It's early days, but I can't speak highly enough of this bass, my opinion of the Squier range (particularly VM and CV) has sky-rocketed! As an aside - Steve at PMT in Birmingham (I have no affiliation!) who ordered this in for me was an absolute gem - I originally called about a price match and whilst he wasn't able to meet the other retailer's price, he threw in a free set-up and free Saturday delivery which would've cost me more than the difference in price anyway.
  8. Big fan of the CV series, £200 is an absolute steal!!
  9. My VM precision arrives tomorrow! I spent about 40 minutes A/B'ing the VM and an Affinity last weekend and the VM just felt that bit more polished. There was a noticeable difference in the quality of the neck and the electronics (serious hum from the Affinity) and the tone from the DD pickup was a world apart from the standard Squier job.

  11. The old MIM Deluxe Precisions have a Jazz neck on them - I can attest that they are extremely slim indeed!

  13. My brother picked one up as his first bass on eBay, it was ok, quite a bit of rattle from the hardware but saw him through the first six or twelve months of playing. Ok place to start, but echoing others it won't be long before you're after something better!
  14. *wades in* I've personally never owned a Mac but I have used them in the past for some light video editing. My experience was good, but the cost will always be higher than the equivalent hardware in a Windows machine. THAT SAID, if I could afford/justify it, I would definitely buy in to the Apple ecosystem - the components might not be bleeding edge (technically) but the overall package of hardware, aesthetics and simple software will deliver an experience that's much more pleasing than the most expensive Windows machines. This post was written by a Windows system builder from an Android smartphone (before you get any ideas!!)
  15. Really was an excellent set. Hearing FOD on the BBC's coverage made my evening.
  16. I'm currently torn between the CV and VM Precisions. Played both, the CV felt incredibly solid and well put together, but the pickup in the VM had a real growl to the tone that wasn't quite there with the CV! Decisions decisions!
  17. +1 on the white/maple version. Looks great. The body is still a huge slab of ash so I doubt the weight will have changed much!
  18. So it arrived, looks great (can't post photos from mobile?!) but I think the input is dodgy - two or three times I've fired it up and not been able to get any output, despite there being an obvious hum. Tried 3 leads and two basses (and my bass through a different amp to make sure it wasn't that) and no dice. It's oddly intermittent because other times it's powered up just fine. Needless to say it's going back this week...
  19. Thanks for all your responses! I've actually managed to get hold of an ex-display (practically mint) BA110 for £130 from Gear4Music! Problem solved.
  20. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1376335536' post='2172425'] It depends entirely on what you've been eating. ...Sorry. [/quote] Regretted that the second I hit post! Easy target! David - thanks for the comprehensive reply, I would ideally like to know I had enough headroom to keep up with an acoustic guitar, but not a lot more than that.
