      HA! Yes. Parcelforce are cheap. But they've lost more of my basses than any other courier.

      Interparcel don't insure musical instruments unless they are in a hard case - it's in their fine print. And also insurance is extra. They basically work the same was as parcel2go. I used to use them interchangeably. 

      Also. DPD about half the price of UPS - and much quicker.

      Again, my qualification is that I've shipped something like around 200 basses to europe. :)

      Had a look at Eurosender. Ridiculously too expensive. I'll say it again.

      DPD. Via Parceltogo. £15. Delivery within 2 days. 

      Insurance costs 5% of the value of the goods. £5 to insurance each £100 of value.

      DPD. About £15. Book through https://www.parcel2go.com/

      Extra if you want to insure it.

  8. HELPER NEEDED for London Bass Guitar Show. 

    I need an extra pair of hands on my stand in case I need to go pee or eat or suchlike. I can get you in the show (and you're free to wander around and go watch the artists) as long as you check in with me periodically. Ideally if you can hang around till the end of Sunday and watch my stuff while I go get the van that'd be good too. 

    I'll buy you lunch and get you entry for both days. DM/PM me if you feel like doing it. :)

  12. Frustrating that the most talked about topic at the moment is the dissatisfaction with the un-usability of the forum due to  pop up ads.

    Does anybody have any idea when it's going to be resolved??

      I agree... what everybody SHOULD be talking about is my new basses. 😂

      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. :)

      No. 

      Flu jab and constant sips of water and vocalzone tablets kept me safe. :D

      It was loud though! So constant shouting.

      Here's the ONE interview I managed to do first thing in the morning while it was quiet :
