    If nobody else pipes up - I can sort you out. No need to pay for fuel.

    Also good for spotting West Country bassists who could (and want to) potentially do videos for me 😉So my visit down there is not entirely selfless.

    I'll bring some Chowny bits for the raffle (not basses I'm afraid). Quite looking forward to this.

    Who's just been on the telly then?

    I didn't see this at the post at the time. We import from India tariff free under an EU trade agreement. So yeah - Brexit sucks for me.

    London Bass Guitar Show 2019

    We'll have a pair of Mark Bass Cabs this year, with in ear monitor amplifiers running to Headphones. So best of both worlds. Hopefully it'll be quieter than where we were at NAMM this year, where the ambient noise in the room was 100-105db.

    Nope. All just finish differences.

    Chowny Retrovibe Evo

    None of the shops carry the regular EVO. I think Gear4Music has a few of the Davie504 ones. We have our HQ in Bristol if you're passing (or close by)

    *SUMMONED* Hi! So. Biased opinion alert! Our goal with these was to create a 24 fret lightweight bass that sounded exactly like a vintage stingray. The stinger pre-amp is based on the original 1977 pre-earnie balls stingray preamp (it's kind of all boost and no cut) and the choice of pickups means this bass sounds pretty damn close! There was a video of the "Old Smoothie" Stingray on Andertons website and it was notable how close it sounded. We're pretty pleased. We have stock of Surf Green, Cream and Black (my favourite) if you were considering one. They still have a jazz width neck. They do however feature the Stinger pre-amp as standard.

      They look really nice with the pickups like that btw (and the colours)

      Ah, is that what it is. OK thanks.

      Yeah. We've been making them a while. I wouldn't say they're a faker though, more that they are designed in that style. :)

      Just had a play with the NT4... very very impressed!

    Bass Strap Width (What do you prefer?)

    Sure. I get that my straps aren't gonna be for everyone. Certainly not at my target price.

    Bass Strap Width (What do you prefer?)

    No probs. Now get yourself down to Greggs! **** <- topical reference alert

    Bass Strap Width (What do you prefer?)

    I can get wider ribbon and webbing. But they're not as easy to come by. You can't really trim the ribbons as if you take the edge off it would unravel.

    Bass Strap Width (What do you prefer?)

    We took that in account with the nuts on our basses (we moved from bone to synthetic bone) but have not managed to find something that works as well for this yet. Basses = Vegan. Straps = Not Vegan. We're working on it though.
