  1. Cheap, high-mass bridges

    [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1510246445' post='3404993'] Their range isn't huge [/quote] this is true but they had everything i needed for a cheap P bass build! i quite like there Nitro paint as well (sea foam green)
  2. Cheap, high-mass bridges

    I've used northwest for loads of parts i need quickly very good quality and good customer service
  3. Cheap, high-mass bridges

    I've got black and silver versions of the 3rd link on a couple of bitsa builds (both precision) and they're well built, do the job and i haven't managed to chip or scratch any paint of the black one. the base plate is a little thicker than you might expect so the saddles are quiet low on mine, but that could be a neck height issue. they take a while to arrive but for under £5 from china you cant really go wrong
  4. Strings again

    There what i used my on my MM for years till i also tried Dunlop super brights, now there my go to for it.
  5. looking for a cheap and cheerful jazz pickguard with precision bass routes, preferably black but anything will do
  6. Bass collection Powerbass

    the power bass actually got me into precision basses id always had Yamaha's and a Musicman before, i then used one to try out some filter pedals on a whim in a guitar shop. It felt very well made and sounded like a P bass should. couldn't afford one at the time so ended up with a Squier of eBay but the power bass got me into them and now i only use Precision. I'd say there good basses but your probably best to go out and try and have a play on one!
  7. looking for a cheap 2x10, 4x10 or 1x10 as i want to try something with my setup, condition doesn't matter and doesn't even have to have speakers in as i have a couple of 1x10 speakers lying around (speakers included would be preferable). nothing more than £60 but cheaper the better as i may never use it after I've experimented! probably a long shot! Leciester or Nottingham area
  8. Dr J Sparrow DI - Well pleased

    Picked one up for £20 or so a couple of years ago, keep a behringer bd21 in one gig bag abd the sparrow in another. Prefer the sparrow as its smaller, seems built better and think the controls are a little better for subtle changes.
  9. Saddles, grooved

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263052367549 Found these on ebay ordered one my self, could just take the saddles of the bridge
  10. Moog regret?

    [quote name='CameronJ' timestamp='1498691049' post='3326439'] Your college?! What college is that? Sounds incredible. [/quote] NCN in nottingham. we have a whole room dedicated to synths with everything from ARP odyssey, to moog and loads of Roland gear all going into a midas mixing desk for recording. it was a pretty fun install!
  11. Moog regret?

    my college has Moog lil Phatty, Moog Voyager, Moog Theremin and the whole set of moogerfoogers and we have no regret in buying any of them they get used daily for hours sometimes and sound fantastic and just keep on going (the voyager is around 15 years old) they truly are some fantastic gear. were eyeing up a minitaur and a sub phatty for next year!
  12. Dont know if its useful to anyone but if you spend £20 on amazon you can add a veriaty 12 pack of jim dunlop picks for 59p as an 'add on item' just had teo packs arrive with my order, im always searching for a good pick and can never settle so this seemed a good bargain to me Its hidden in the offer section on the usual pick packs page https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0055VBYWC/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498311715&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=jim+dunlop+guitar+picks&dpPl=1&dpID=41InL9QInqL&ref=plSrch
  13. BV microphone recommendations

    Prodipe TT1 Lanen for me £40 and get a very good review from sound on sound comparing it to an Telefunken M80 (£250) and the Senn MD421 (£339) very well built been using mine for at least 4 years
  14. i love my Genz Benz shuttle 12.2, tube and FET channels, which are mixable, its got 2 600watt out puts so you can do 350watt at 8ohm or 600watt at 4ohm from one output or use both to get all the way to 1200watt (although these are Class D watts but they are loud enough for me) also mean you can use 1 cab or 4 depending on how big you van is or how many roadies you can hire! i went through every amp they had at bass direct at the time (mark bass, TC, Aguliar) and the genz was the one for me!
  15. Active P bass circuit

    [color=#000000][font=sans-serif][size=4]i have the artec SE-2A in my one of my Franken P's and for the £20 it cost i really like it. it has bass and treble boost/cut on a stacked pot so you can use the existing 2 holes in the pickguard. i'm only using a cheap stellah pickup but the tone out of it is really usable. probably not the hottest output but i've never had an issue with volume levels. i think they also do others with mid control and such but for the price its a great way to dip your toe into an active Precision [/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=sans-serif]EDIT the Artec SE-3 has mid control and is £15 on Thomann[/font][/color]
