  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1977-78-Fender-Jazz-Bass-Guitar/264754366975 I'll take it!
  3. Agree completely here. I’ve played 33” scale only for the last five years or so and I’ve had good ones and not so good ones. The bit about being designed and built cleverly is important for any bass of course but absolutely essential on a bass with a low B.
  4. Whenever I see something I want there, it’s always overpriced - a Japanese Ken Smith Burner 6 (they’re rare but the one there at the moment is higher money than I’ve seen American Smiths here on BC) and an old Musicman Sabre (they are all hugely over priced - same ones for sale for literally years). I would buy something there though if the seller had great feedback.
  5. Lovely. I wish I was exaggerating when I say I've been on the lookout for a six-string version of this bass for 5 years now.
  6. They're very good players aren't they? But there really is absolutely no heart in it whatsoever... probably because, as you say Rich, any mistake may likely have serious consequences!
  7. We had this at my dads funeral as we entered the crematorium. As for me, how about 'Firestarter' by The Prodigy or maybe 'Blaze Of Glory' by Bon Jovi?
  8. I’d go with a second hand American Standard - that way you’ll more than likely get a great instrument and also be able to sell it for more or less what you paid when the GAS attacks again.
  9. Andy purchased my Eich BC112Pro combos. Deal was done and dusted within 24 hours. I really hope to deal with him again one day soon.
  10. Awesome. And Vanderkley is great equipment too.
  11. I pulled the trigger on two GRBass miniONE 350w heads to drive two AeroTech 112H (4ohm) cabinets. I’m very excited to A/B/C it with my Trickfish and Eich equipment.
  12. Sold an MXR overdrive to Nigel. Instantaneous payment. Perfect transaction.
  13. Looks like a very nice bit of kit. Very interesting concept.
  14. Yes, I think I'm going to go front ported now after a few conversations. I use a lot of delay/reverb/overdrive/looping pedals live so the ever so slightly larger footprint and .5kg weight increase are not significant enough to warrant the potential problems that can crop up with rear porting.
  15. Hi there @Bill Fitzmaurice - would you be kind enough to tell me which of these two options you would plump for if you had to choose between the two based purely on your knowledge and the information available here? GRBass AT 112 H POWER 450W RMS (AES Standard) DIMENSIONS 39 H, 51 W, 35 D cm WEIGHT 8 Kg COLOURS Carbon Fiber + Tolex black. Custom color on demand. IMPEDANCE 8 or 4 ohm BASS REFLEX on front TWEETER 1” with Lpad regulator FREQUENCY RESPONSE 38Hz to 22 kHz SENSITIVITY 99 dB SPL GRBass AT CUBE 112 POWER 450W RMS (AES Standard) DIMENSIONS 43 H, 40 W, 35 D cm WEIGHT 7,5 Kg COLOURS Carbon Fiber + Tolex black.

  16. I found this for anyone else who might be interested in the miniONE. http://www.karlclews.com/blog/gear-part-10-gr-bass-mini-one In summary "...the Mini One performed admirably on the gigs. As a class D head, it’s fine to run it without a cab, so as planned, I simply plugged it directly into the PA. Since then, I’ve used it on a number of local gigs, driving my Epifani UL 410, and the 350 watts it puts out are plenty for most gigs - anything where you need more than 350 watts, you would tend to be putting the bass through the PA in any case. The sound of the Mini One is beautifully transparent - it doesn’t appear to colour the inherent tone of my basses at all, which is exactly how I like my amps to work! In comparison with the Genz Benz Shuttles, the bottom end of the Mini One feels more focused, and the mids are very punchy, so slap and more percussive fingerstyle cut through the mix very well. And the top end is nice and airy, and you really have to dial it way up before it starts to get harsh and brittle. All in all, it’s a fantastic little amp, and the tight, focused bottom end and distinctively punchy mids make it sound much, much bigger than its tiny size and 350 watts..."
  17. There are more options on the GR Bass miniONE compared with the Trace Elliott Elf. I would probably say the miniONE is closer in comparison with an Aguilar TH350 from a specification perspective? https://www.aguilaramp.com/bass-amps/tone-hammer-350/ POWER 350W RMS 4 ohm, 175W RMS 8 ohm DIMENSIONS 20.9 x 19.1 x 7cm WEIGHT 1.4kg FRONT PANEL Input -10dB input pad Gain Drive Mid level Mid freq.

  18. Does anyone here have first hand experience of a GR Bass miniONE? I've done a Google search and there isn't a huge amount of information around. I'd really love to hear some thoughts on it - it reads pretty great. https://www.grbass.com/amps/mini-one/ POWER 350W RMS 4 ohm, 170W RMS 8 ohm DIMENSIONS 19 x 16 x 4.3cm WEIGHT 1.3kg FRONT PANEL Input Aux In Low Mid High Gain Headphone Master Pre/Post Deep mid Freq 400/800hz Bright Mute REAR PANEL Input 230-115v (auto selectable) DI Output Speakon
  19. My second absolutely brand new and unused EICH BC112Pro bass combo made 17 December 2019. I play in stereo for any folks wondering why I had two of these. This 500w EICH BC112Pro, 1x12", lightweight combo costs £1099 at Bass Direct and it is available for less than the price of a new 300w EICH BC112 combo. I am based in Bournemouth and any trial is welcome. If you have any questions, etc. please contact me. EICH BC112Pro Features: Extremely lightweight Classic grill cloth High quality ceramic speaker TE12D Switching power supply Poplar plywood housing "Taste" Filter 4-band EQ pre/post "DI out" 4" CT1 cone-driver External Speakon speaker jack Combo Speaker “Off” switch AUX-In Headphone Out EICH BC112Pro Specifications: Model: BC112pro Configuration: 1 x 12" TE12D-8 Preamp: solid state preamp with gain, taste, lo, lo-mid, hi-mid, hi, master volume controls, "mute" switch, DI pre/post, XLR balanced DI out, 1 x effects loop, tuner out, line out, line in Power Amp: Class D amplifier, 500 w / 4 ohms Power supply: switching power supply Tweeter: 4" CT1 cone-driver Freq. Response: 40-19.000 Hz Dimensions: (W x H x D): 44 cm x 45 cm x 35 cm / 17" x 18" x 14" Weight: 14.1 kg / 31.06 lbs Option: Cover The BC112Pro combo is driven by power, punch and drive. With it's 500 Watts you will experience every detail of your playing in a totally new and distinct way – completely unaltered but with lots of punch, just the way you like it. The well-balanced four-band tone control suits all musical styles with a perfect sound. The “TASTE” control allows you to emphasise the tonal characteristics of your instrument – everything between a wiry mid-boost, a bold slap and an ultra-fat Reggae or Motown sound. Jacks for FX loop, Tuner Out, Line Out, Line In and a transformer balanced pre/post switchable DI Out with ground lift lets you connect the BC112Pro to the outside world. The BC112Pro is ideal for travelling around the world due to their voltage switch which allows them to be operated at 230 or 115 volts 50 – 60 Hz. The BC112Pro combo is fitted with our newly designed EICH TE12D-8 12” bass speaker chassis that works in meticulously calibrated enclosures to deliver an impressive bass. For optimum damping of unwanted resonances our housings are made with support bracings and dampened with acoustic foam. The combo features the new 4” CT1 tweeter with a ceramic-magnet system. In a coupled volume the tweeter convinced on one hand with his deep starting frequency, on the other hand, with its very flat frequency response and offers far beyond 10 kHz at astounding sound pressure for silky highs. All combos have an additional Speakon® combo connector for operating an additional cabinet. The internal speaker can be selectively switched off. At the "Rehearsal Section" a headset can be connected at “Phone out” and trough the “AUX-In” a music signal can be fed. The BC112Pro can be tilted in to a monitor position by inserting a stainless steel rod, which is located at the bottom of the combo.
  20. Chris purchased one of my Eich BC112Pro combos. Instant payment and brilliant communication throughout. I hope to deal with him again soon.
  21. Very nice and makes complete sense yes. With everything considered, I think I’m going to go with the smaller footprint and slightly lighter weight of two CUBES.
  22. Are you going to buy the AT CUBE 112 or the AT 112 cabinet?
