  1. Trev aka LeftyBiskit is a genuine guy to deal with. He bought my boss bass limiter pedal from me. He kept me informed of the transaction as it was happening form his end, paid quickly and the whole transaction went without any trouble. I'd happily trade with him again. Sid.
  2. Mark is a great guy to deal with, very friendly. He bought my Alesis rack mount 3060 compressor. Great communication and paid very quickly - so quickly in fact that he forgot to pass on his address

  11. Popped over to meet Steve at his house this morning to part ex my 2 old Trace cabs plus a wad of cash for his TecAmp M212. Steve is honest, friendly and really down to earth. He made me feel very welcome as we executed our dodgy deal and chewed the fat on pretty much everything. What a top bloke in every respect! Sid.
  12. I arranged a straight swap with Ray - His TC Electronics Classic 450 amp for my Mark Bass Little Mark mkII. The trade went without a hitch. What I was especially impressed with was that he had no problem dealing with someone who is virtually unknown on Basschat and happily packaged off his £500 amp head as soon as he could. Ray was always quick to respond my questions and thorough in his replies. I only managed to speak to him once over the phone but he seems like a genuine guy to deal with - highly recommended to all other Basschat wheeler dealers! Sid.

  14. OK, one final bump. I'm off on holiday for a couple of weeks and will be back at the beginning of November. If anyone is interested in the Zodiac (I am open to offers) please PM me and I'll get back to you on my return. If there's no takers in that time it'll end up on ebay Sid.
  15. Another bump, any offers? Don't make me eBay this thing.....
  16. Cheers for the big up Stan !! Adee, PM sent.
  17. Here's some photos now I've figured out how to do it!! I can post some other specific views if anyone requests them. [attachment=13797:Body.JPG] [attachment=13798:Head.JPG]
  18. Hi all, I’m toying with the idea of parting with my white Peavey Zodiac DE Scorpio. This is the discontinued version of the Zodiac series that features mirror metal pick guard of the DE signature model but has stock Peavey pickups instead of the SD Basslines as on the signature model. It also features the DE and scorpion logos on the headstock. The beast is white, less than 6 months old and in as new condition with just 2 tiny dings; The first is in the paint work on the side under the top horn (this is just a dent, it has not cracked or chipped the paint itself) that measures about 4 or 5 mm. The second is a tiny 2 or 3 mm ‘nick’ on the end of the headstock There is no buckle rash or fret ware; I cannot stress enough that this bass really is in perfect condition. Tonally it has the classic passive Fender-esque tones courtesy of the P and neck J pups, very big, very bassy but never woolly. Comparing it against the top end DE model it stands up very well – it has the depth and punch of the Basslines and, if anything, it has slightly more top end. It’s certainly not lacking low end as the review in Bass guitar mag suggested a while ago. The only significant tonal difference between this and the DE signature model that I could tell was that the signature model had a higher output signal courtesy of the Basslines. Photos can be emailed on request as I haven’t figured out how to insert them on here yet Reason for possibly selling is that it was an impulse buy and I’ve only played it for a few hours in that time favouring my trusty old Ibanez basses instead. I paid £280 for it new about 3 or 4 months ago. Anyone interested for £200? I’d prefer collection from Northants if possible but am willing to post if the buyer is willing to cover the costs, approx £15-20.
  19. I've tried the bass through several different amps, my gigging rig, my bedroom amp and even the guitarists amp in a rehersal - it is definetly the bass that's the problem. Noisy jazz pups are not really a major issue, I don't do much recording and when I do I usually use my Ibanez SR1000 Presige which also has Bartolini pups in, though these are the 'custom' models and tonally are more to my tastses being inherantley darker and warmer in tone. I use the SR500 for mostly live work as it's easy and comfortable to play and it didn't cost a stupid amount of money which is great as our rhythm guitarist is Mr Bump - so no tears as and when he decides to barge into me or it on a regulat basis!!! Still not decided what to do with it as yet, I'll probably keep 'running' it for a while and monitor the issue. At the minute it's not too bad and is aceptable to live and gig with (unlike my misses!) But if the problem comes back again it might be surgery time...... My current band looks like it's about to enter a state of atrophy so getting the SR500 sorted may slip down the prioity list until I get a new project sorted. Hey ho.
  20. Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll whip the bridge off and check the ground cable. By the ground do you mean the earthing cable??? If so, my understanding was that all this did was to help eliminate a general electrical hum, but as I said I'm no expert and will believe almost anything I'm told!!! The circuit is not epoxy coated but it is covered with a sticky backed peice of high density foam (ala blue Peter). I'm reluctant to try and peel this off in case it does more damage than good..... What componants I can make out though are very tiny indeed so as you say trouble shooting could be a real ball ache. To be sure it is the preamp that's at fault, is it possible to rewire the bass to bypass the cicuit and run it as a passive instrument? Could it equally be a duff pickup that's behind the problem? I have been half heartedly toying with the idea of whipping the guts out of the bass and converting it to a passive model anyway (maybe lob in a pair of SD quater pounder jazz pups) but I'd like to know what the faulty componant is to be able to sell the 'working' parts with a clear conscience!! Don't get me wrong, the Bartolini pups and eq are amazing, very clean, clear and defined - it's just that I prefer the warmth and tone of passive pups so this fault could perhaps force the issue. My thoughts aside, anyone else have any wisdom to shed on this problem please?
