  1. Shortscale Bass Selection

    Good choice, hope you enjoy it. Tried it with a fender rumble amp and was very impressed.
  2. Shortscale Bass Selection

    Following this thread with interest as I am thinking of picking up a short scale. The Jaguar SS looks great value for money, has a slim neck and PJ pickups. I have tried a Gretch Junior and that was really nice. Also tried the Squire Bronco and liked that too but it felt like it only had one sound in it. My favorite that I have tried so far has been the Fender Mustang with the PJ pickups fitted. The price was a bit to steep though for something I just wanted to see if I could get along with. I have noodled on all the basses I have listed for 5-10 mins in guitar shops.
  3. This used to be mine and If you haven't tried a Farida before I can heartily recommend them and this one in particular. It has a fantastic Jazz style neck that is really easy to play on. I tried this with Seymour Duncan Quater Pounder but preferred the original pick so swapped it back again. I still have a Farida Jazz which is fantastic and would of kept this one too but I was lusting after a black and maple necked P bass
  4. Farida Jazz Bass - GONE

    Great quality bass. Punches well above its price tag.
  5. Feedback for jon_kemo

    Just bought Jon's Vintage V4 bass. Great communication throughout the process. Bass arrived on the day agreed. Really well wrapped to protect it. Jon also provided a tracking number so I could folllw its progress. Very easy to deal with and would recommend Jon without reservation to deal with

  8. Tennis elbow

    I have had tennis elbow in both arms and agree it can be really debilitating, even holding a cup of tea was painful. What worked for me was a combination of physio, massage and anti inflammatory tablets. It has now cleared on both arms. I have no pain playing bass or doing any lifting. My advice is to get your doctor to recommend you for physio on your arm, they will show you the simple exercises you can do at home as well as the muscle massage you can also do. It does take time but it will clear as long as you keep up with the exercises. In the meantime anti inflammatory tablets and good elbow support will help.
  9. NORTH WEST BASS BASH 12th Feb 2017

    Can you add me to the list please. This will be my first Bass Bash. May bring my Yamaha BB1024x. This will be my first bass bash so really looking forward to it
  10. Feedback for kevvo66

    Just done a trade with Kev for his bass cab. Really pleasant enthusiastic guy who went out of his way to bring the cab straight to me. Great communication, no faffing around. Wouldn't hesitate to deal with Kev again. Great bass chatter
  11. Ashdown RM White line cabs.

    I may pop into my my local music shops if they have these in stock and see if there is any vibration coming from the Ashdown badge. If there's no vibration present or I can stop it coming from the badge then they may be coming home with me. Thanks for the advice.
  12. Ashdown RM White line cabs.

    I never considered the badge could of been at the root of the vibration issue before. The Evo cabs have a fabric grill rather than the metal one on them but I suppose the badge could still vibrate on that as the fabric is quite taught across the front. Hope that is the issue with these cabs as the price, weight and size ticked all the boxes for me.
  13. Ashdown RM White line cabs.

    I've had a very mixed experience with these cabs. I tried the 2x10 combo and 1x15 in Dawson's and they sounded great. Would of happily bought them there and then but I needed a 2x10 cab and not a combo.unfortunatley Dawson's would not be getting one in stock for over a month. Being impatient I went home and ordered the 2 cabs from GAk. On arrival the size and weight of the cabs ticked all the boxes for me. The problem started once I plugged them in. The 2x10 gave out the most horrendous farting/buzzing noise whenever I played an A note. The 1x 15 also buzzed but not as bad as the 2x10. I tried different amp heads, but the problem remained. I tried my Mark bass 1x15 and genz Benz 2x10 and there was not a hint of buzzing when I used my old cabs. This seemed to prove the fault lay with the Ashdown cabs, which were returned the next day to GAK and got a full refund as they had no replacements in stock. A few weeks latter I saw the same cabs in Rimmers Music and tried them out with TC BH500 amp head. The 2x10 cab had a faulty speakon connector and the 1x15 was buzzing and vibrating in the shop. The sales guy confirmed he could hear it too and it was local to the cab rather than something else in the store vibrating. Bottom line was I love the weight and size of these cabs but I have lost confidence in buying them now. Did try the Fender Rumble 1x15 combo with a 4x10 cab as a comparison and it sounded fantastic.
  14. Best cars for shifting gear?

    Vauxhall Zafira. Fully flexible seat folding. Rear seats fold flat to leave a massive Van like loading area. No idea what there like to drive or reliable but they certainly fit the bill for moving lots if equipment around. They also seem to be pretty cheap to pick up second hand
