  1. Sparkle - what's not to like!! 😍
  2. The 14th South East Bass Bash will be on Sunday 23 October 2022 - 0900 - 1700 At Jubilee High School, Surrey, School Lane, Addlestone, Surrey KT15 1TE Get the date in your diaries!
  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  4. I quite like the look of the Spector NS Pulse 5 - they come in at around 8lb 8oz. EMG pickups and a tone pump preamp
  5. 'Action Fraud' are pretty useless. They're only interested if the fraud gets well into 7 figures. Anything much less than that and they pass it to the local force. It's not so much the police force as the Crown Prosecution Service. The CPS will only authorise charges that are in the public interest or which are more or less a certainty for conviction at court. Not the cops - it's the system.
  6. That's really very bad as the case for simple theft - and indeed fraud, is easily made out. I understand if it's about 1 pedal on 1 occasion as that would effectively be one word against another, but this appears to be a serial thief/fraudster. First you have to make the allegation of the crime. Use your local police force online reporting facility. In your report you need describe what happened: The date and location (the location is where the offence happened - (don't say Facebook or eBay or whatever - someone here must have the guys home address?) That he was dishonest - "Whether, according to the ordinary standards of reasonable and honest people, what was done was dishonest." That he intended to make a gain for himself - According to section 8 of the Criminal Justice Act 1967, “a court or jury, in determining whether a person has committed an offence… shall decide whether he did intend or foresee that result by reference to all the evidence, drawing such inferences from the evidence as appear proper in the circumstances”. He appropriated 'property' - 'Any assumption by a person of the rights of an owner amounts to an appropriation, and this includes, where he has come by the property (innocently or not) without stealing it, any later assumption of a right to it by keeping or dealing with it as owner.' Property - 'Property includes money and all other property, real or personal, including things in action and other intangible property.' Belonging to another - 'Where a person receives property from another, and is under an obligation to the other to deal with that property or its proceeds in a particular way, the property or proceeds shall be regarded (as against him) as belonging to the other.' With the intention of permanently depriving the other - The important test is whether the person appropriating the property 'treats it as his own to dispose of regardless of the others rights'. In simple terms: I paid for the item and he failed to send me the goods, and that you know (and point to) several other victims of the same theft/fraud; His intention to make a profit/gain for himself is clear as he has done the same thing to several other victims (as above); Despite repeated requests for your money he has kept it; It was a £xxxx including postage He received the money and was under an obligation to send you the goods. Point them to this thread. They may NFA it straight away but you can take it further: Make a complaint about the police using the IOPC website - https://iopc-complaints.egressforms.com/ The local Professional Standards Department will inform you about the rationale why it wasn't investigated in an attempt to 'service recover' the complaint. Don't accept service recovery and tell them you want the complaint recorded. Then they have to write out their rationale as a response to your complaint. You can appeal their decision to the local Police & Crime Commissioner. If you get no result - write to your MP informing them of the multiple scams and that your police force is doing nothing about it. If we can just get one police force charging him, then you can tell them about all the other 'unsolved crimes' and get permission from the court to consider them all in the same court. I don't know about Scottish law - sorry.

  8. As individuals yes, but we can't do it in the name of Basschat as that would leave us open to possible litigation. Thanks.
  9. Excellent condition and flight cased. Because of Covid I've only used it once since a re-valve. Pictures tomorrow when I get home. As this weighs quite a lot and is full of glass I'm not willing to ship. Collection in person, or I'm happy to meet you halfway on a journey from me to you (within reason!) Cash or bank transfer - none of your paypal mullarky please. Yes, I'll accept a reasonable offer - NO TRADES thanks. Here's a review by a hippy - Hippy Bass! Ampeg's description for those who are not aware of what this beast is! (Best read with an American accent)
  10. I'd like to sell this so I can spend the money!!
  11. Hi. There's an XLR line out on the back. As it's solid state it shouldn't be a problem running it without a speaker load. Cheers Colin
  12. Hartke KILO 1000W - 4ohms mono bridged / 500W x 2 Stereo into 2ohms. Valve preamp. Tough and sturdy chassis in a brand new case. Loads of tone shaping options. A real BEAST of a bass amp! NO offers at this final price, if it doesn't sell I'm keeping it!. It's a heavy item to ship so pick up is preferred. I'm happy to meet you within a reasonable distance from M.25 J.10. Cheers
  13. I'll put pictures up if needed, but it's only been used once so it's really as new. Power lead, speaker cables and carry case included. I'll pay for fully insured shipping within the UK, excluding Highlands & Islands which will be by agreement. Thanks
  14. Well. I think that there isn't a bass dealer/seller/shop on the planet which hasn't at one time had a dissatisfied customer. Instead of a continuing excoriation of any particular dealer/seller/shop why don't we take our dissatisfaction to the dealer/seller/shop? It's not as though this hasn't been discussed before? Take it to the source of discontent. Thanks Colin
