  1. I completely understand where you're coming from and, apart from not selling all my equipment (I've kept my one bass and my pedals but all my amplification is gone), it could have been me writing this - I think I've played maybe 6 times since March 2020.
  2. I know you talked about the Darkglass Vintage Microtubes... but I use an Alpha Omega and its the only distortion pedal I've ever kept - bought and sold probably 20 over the years.
  3. The same reasons as @BigRedX unfortunately - not being able to perform live has resulted in no incentive for me - I've probably picked up my bass less than 5 times since March 2020.
  4. US Standard, white, tort and rosewood. Perfect.
  5. Would it be possible for you to go to the bass gallery and A/B test them at volume? I’ve had and gigged two Trickfish TF112 cabinets and I liked the sound a lot but I sold them because they were too heavy for me at 36lbs.
  6. Really happy to read a nice story about a courier. I think couriers are largely as good as one another overall. For every negative about DPD, FedEx, Royal Mail, Hermes, there will be loads of positives that nobody talks about. Despite all the horror stories, I used Hermes for well over 70 packages in November/December and had 1 problem out of all of them. I sent maybe 10 through Real Mail and had 2 problems. I don't blame anyone - its just the way it goes
  7. The buyer market determines the actual value of course. The beautiful top wood on this bass is something else.
  8. I'm not affiliated with the sellers here but this combination would be pretty cool and gets you the amplifier and two cabinets all in for £500. https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/442293-ashdown-abm300-evo-ll-amplifier-mag-cabinets-410t-deep-115-deep-reduced-to-£425/ Or this cabinet priced at £350 - I don't think you'd need a second cabinet with this beauty. https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/441270-£350-barefaced-big-one-w-silver-cloth-cover-final-price-£350/ Or maybe either of these? No frills, tiny and cheap. https://www.andertons.co.uk/trace-elliot-elf-bass-head-teelf?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=surfaces&gclid=Cj0KCQiAtqL-BRC0ARIsAF4K3WFNSAwa53ORKz5kSyBGHa4cKrLLWEpaPnO9CySTyi9xhrryPLCsFlEaAi7WEALw_wcB https://www.thomann.de/gb/tc_electronic_bam200.htm?glp=1&gclid=Cj0KCQiAtqL-BRC0ARIsAF4K3WElWlq16qvEr8V3td58dSN1ez43tP9VVhJiQjE79PpvWMbCz_2JJgYaAhNeEALw_wcB
  9. Anyway, back on topic. I think it's poor that the BBC dropped these musicians after they asked to be paid.
  10. I don't watch Dave, I don't watch Yesterday, I don't watch UKTV Play, I don't visit bbc.co.uk either. I watch Sky Arts, both Eurosport channels and that's more or less it. All I'm saying is that I'd prefer not to have to pay for it and would like to see a tiered subscription service introduced perhaps.
  11. A subscription service perhaps then? I don't watch anything the BBC put out so I'd prefer not to be forced to pay for it.
  12. I couldn't agree more. I'm all for defunding the BBC from public money and letting them either die or do what their competitors have to do and start generating money from advertisting.
  13. Sorry to read this. I had to submit two claims with Interparcel over the past two years. They were very easy to work with, very responsive and reimbursed me the full value of the insurance I paid for on both occasions so I hope you have the same experience.
  14. SOLD: Vein-Tap Gallows Multiple x4 True Bypass Looper Sold previously but it took a knock sometime during the very lengthy delivery so I’ve got it back, opened it up, reconnected a wire that had come loose, checked everything else internally, tested all functionality/lights, etc. and the pedal is working perfectly again. Before and after photographs below. For the total tone purist, true bypass loop strips are the only way to go. Now you can go there in style with the Vein-Tap Gallows Multiple True Bypass Looper. - Loops: x 4 - Activation: Quiet soft touch (no click) This configuration will cost £99.95 new from the lovely Vein-Tap folks.
  15. I’m very surprised this is still available actually - it’s a great price honestly - they’re ultra rare - when they came out I bought the Jazz Bass equivalent - a fabulous instrument.
  16. How about a Barefaced Super Midget? I see a fair few upright bassists pair one of these with an Acoustic Image Clarus amplifier. https://barefacedaudio.com/products/super-midget
  17. This is very useful - thanks very much for providing. A fan does bother me enough though so I'll go for an Acoustic Image Clarus SL.
  18. Once, and assuming, we eventually get back to being able to perform live properly again, I'm leaning towards pairing an Acoustic Image Clarus SL-2 with a Barefaced FRFR Super Midget.
  19. With the Acoustic Image Clarus SL and the GSS Baby Sumo, I don't really understand why any amplifier needs a fan nowadays frankly.
  20. A Barefaced amplifier would be very, veerrryyyy interesting... as long as there’s no fan!
  21. I sold a stand to Tony who paid right away and was great to work with throughout. An absolutely excellent basschatter and I hope to deal with him again one day soon.
