    Super easy transaction, wish I had more time to stay and chat!
  3. Fast payment and nice comms, even despite postage screw-up on my part. Deal with confidence
  4. One of the most beautiful fretless basses I've seen. I was ogling it when it was on Jon's website - in fact came close to buying it in 2017 I think.... So sorry you had so much stress over it. Hope you fall back in love with it!
  5. Photos added. Rack includes bolts and washers for mounting kit. FRONT and BACK writing to help the orientationally-challenged like myself
  6. Yes I will do in next day or two - equipment currently living in the rack is just about to ‘hermit crab’ its way into a larger rack! 😆
  7. Decent quality 4u case, made by Black Rat. comes with 2u sliding rack shelf perfect application would be for 2u racked amp, with any pedals or non-rack gear mounted to the shelf photos below add £10 for postage in UK
  8. Help unleash your (/your guitarist's) inner Van Halen urges. Amazing bridge pickup by Bare Knuckle, hand wound in UK. A harmonically rich, PAF-type pickup that really rocks! 52mm spacing, reverse zebra, short leg. Only imperfection is that I gently etched VH2b onto the baseplate, as BKP does not label their pickups. Only selling as I just bought a matched pair of the same model, but now also including the neck pickup. This one is spare. £75 posted in UK, PPG
  9. Pair of wonderful Geetar pickups, coming out of a 2008 ES335. Good condition- bit of darkening on the serial no. stickers is due to the heat from the pickup covers being re-attached (they were briefly taken off, before being re-attached). Alnico 2's, designed for Gibson by Tom Holmes, and they sound superb (in both ES guitars and Les Pauls... and anything else probably!). I'm selling because I'm after a slightly more modern tone, may regret this but need some cash now! £85 posted in UK, PPG
  10. I had these for about a year (just in case!) - but finally accepted I have no use for them. I played no more than 1 hour on them, and took them off in favour of Thomastiks on my fretless. I don't have original packaging from D'addario but they have been individually stored in sealed envelopes and basically look and feel as new. Never made contact with frets!! I had them on a Jazz bass, but I don't think the silks were even cut. Photo below - sorry I couldn't get them to stay curled up outside the envelopes! £20 posted in UK, PPG
  11. Can’t recommend these highly enough! Wish I had a spare jazz bass for these!!
  12. Original PRS rotary switch - very little use since taking out of my CE24. Has been unused for a few years!. £28 PPG complete EMG bass electrics (5 string) - two DC40 humbuckers, vol-vol-switch loom, with stacked EMG BTC preamp. £SOLD
  13. Lovely reissue Swede electric guitar. Mahogany body, so closer to a Les Paul Custom than a Standard. Versatile sounds from jazz to heavy rock. It has a clean neck and fingerboard, almost no fretwear. Electrics work great. There are a few chips - shown. These are not visible when playing. From memory, the guitar is approx 10 years old but has had very little playing - my wife bought it when when she wanted to try playing guitar... finally accepted that it’s time to move it on! I only have a soft case, so meet-up or collection only please.
  14. Cheap valve pre’s Normally have tubes running at low voltages, so not really getting the best out of them. The sound may be bit harsh (and definitely more noisy than your interface preamps) but if you like the colour it gives, go for it. Don’t forget that transistor designs (eg any Neve 1073 type design - eg Golden Age Preamp Pre73 being one of the most affordable) can also give a very pleasing warmth / saturation. If you can find one at a similar price, i’d Take one over a tube preamp at the same price point. It is a rabbit hole though: the outboard preamp by itself may get you closer to the ‘polished studio sound’ - but then there’s EQ, compressor (or two), hardware reverb etc etc. Point being: decide what and how you ultimately want to record. Most interfaces these days have preamps that would be acceptable even for any level of recording project. If you want just a bit more colour, it could be nice to have something different - it won’t be the final and only piece of kit you need for the sound ‘in your head’ but if it inspires better performances it’s worth it.... if you do end up getting it, try to run it though line inputs (generally no need to run signal through two separate mic pres).
  15. Even though it’s a close-mic’ing system (looks like something you mount over the F hole?), try to find a room / space in the room that sounds best when you are playing - you are still recording an acoustic instrument, in a space. It’s nice to capture some of the fingerboard slap, so another mic may give more options if you are missing the ‘attack’ there - but then watch out for how the mics interact. even better to record in a nice sounding room with a decent omni mic at about 1m away, though that’s getting closer to studio, not home recording! otherwise general tips apply, watch out that levels don’t clip the input - you can easily leave 6db of headroom; no need to get as close as possible to 0db.
