  2. Just finished restoring this 301. Was looking a bit sorry for itself. Original CV 18” was still working well! It sounds great with the 370. Here is a before and after!!;
  3. Hi all A friends bass amp Ashdown ABM RCIII 500 Was stolen from a Gig in Wrexham (north wales) Sat night 9th Feb. Was taken off the stage in the public by an opportunist. CCTV caught the chap and he even looked at the cameras bust as far as I know Police haven’t been able to identify him. The amp was taken in its SKB Rack 2u but without it’s Lids. Here is a FB link to the owner and his original post. Keep an eye out please! Thankyou James https://www.facebook.com/507027859/posts/10156770604177860/
  4. For sale is my Olympia OB-3 CE acoustic bass. Originally it was a fretted Instrument by was converted before my ownership. Nice conversion with a varnished board. Not sure exactly how old it is. I think about 2005? I have had it a few years and have only upgraded the pickup. I installed an under saddle KK pickup wired to the old Fishman Preamp. The original Under saddle Piezo pickup is still in place just disconnected. Bass is in very good condition with small dent here and there. Its a nice sounding bass! It is louder than your normal Style acoustic bases, thats why i got it. Comes with a large epiphone Acoustic bass case. Will need some new strings but I assume the buyer has a preference on there own string type... Here is a link i found with some more info; Can only upload 2 photos for some reason, anyhow PM me i have more i can send!! Selling as I have finally found a trachoma Thunder chief 5 string!

  6. Here is my 1977 bass I just finished restoring. Taken me a few months. Very happy with it. Sounds funky as hell!!!
  7. Forgot to post a reply, yes done a few gigs with it with the K140's now about the same amount as the Eminence Deltas that were in there first. I would say the JBL''s have a little more warmth and more upper mid range attack. The Eminence driver had lots more Bothom End grunt but no upper mid's. Surprised as there sensitivity and slightly higher frequency response say otherwise but hey it is a 15" speaker and I'm more use to 10's and 12's for bass guitar. Overall I'm will be leaving the JBL's in there. They do have a lovely sound too them. I see why they are so regarded by people in the know!
  8. I'm up for this! Can take some of my collection too? Is there cake?? Haha
  9. Here an odd combo I tried one night, sounded stonking though! V6 and Acoustic 402 and Wal Mk1 [URL=http://s693.photobucket.com/user/jb777fog/media/Bass%20picks%20Genral/BCFEDA7A-6505-4BB9-8257-52F1351AFECD.jpg.html][IMG]http://i693.photobucket.com/albums/vv294/jb777fog/Bass%20picks%20Genral/BCFEDA7A-6505-4BB9-8257-52F1351AFECD.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  10. Here s my restoration in progress of my old 77 Ray. Will do a complete Feed when it's done! It started life as a walnut brown bass and then was painted light blue and then the red when I got it. All the hardware is Gold witch is very unusual for an old Ray. Chaps on the MM forum can't decide if it's factory or done afterwards. Either way it's an old plating finish.. I traded a 1989 Ray for it. Soon found out why they traded it as the neck had a bad bow And the truss rod bullet had split the nut and the wood at the first feet. It's all fixed but was caused by over tightening the truss rod I think.. Was going to put it back to walnut but went walnut stain and a gloss finish. Will look good with the gold hardware! Getting there!!..! Thanks for looking.

  11. Found some K140's after a long search on EBay. Gig this weekend so will see how they go! So far they are a little brighter than the Eminence 15's and far more efficient. Look retro too haha [URL=http://s693.photobucket.com/user/jb777fog/media/Bass%20picks%20Genral/BE94E119-EC3F-4BBB-A2C2-9F3E5D5050FD.jpg.html][IMG]http://i693.photobucket.com/albums/vv294/jb777fog/Bass%20picks%20Genral/BE94E119-EC3F-4BBB-A2C2-9F3E5D5050FD.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  12. At last I found a 402 cab. It's not the right can to match the 370 but it all works well. Got the cab of eBay with no drivers so after a lot of researching decided on Eminence Delta 15's. I wanted JBL K140's but couldn't find any. Well I did but couldn't get to the seller who had them because of work. The cab is in very good condition. Managed to get Penn castors for it witch just slotted straight in! It's a good can with a nice smooth sound! Very versatile for 2 15's not too heavy. Not sure of the if its true but the chap I got it off said it once belonged to Jeff Lynn of ELO! No proof but cool to think so if true.

  13. My first Bass amp was a home made setup, couldn't afford a proper amp so i made one. The amp head was a 150W Commercial PA Amplifier 100v line thing with an 8 ohm output. It was given to me by a chap who got it from a frozen food factory. It was the announcement amp haha. It Was made by "Optimus" was extremely heavy. And a 1x15" home made cab. The Cab was ace The annoying thing about this amp was it had a "Clip Limiter" that didn't reduce the sound or anything like that it annoyingly cut the sound all together foe 2 seconds. So while playing i had to keep the volume just under the clip. Very annoying. Moved over to a Trace Elliot GP12 head soon after and that blew my mind! I was only 16 at the time haha
  14. Has anyone on here got any leads on where or if the old Green Grill Matreial Trace used on the matching V series cabs can be obtained. Trace can't help. I have managed to get a very sorry looking 8x10 cab that went with the V6 V4 heads only problem is it didn't have thew grill. Would like it to match the material on the front of the V6 i have Green carpeted version. The steel grill would do i suppose but again i have a feeling these are rare. Pm me if ayone knows anything of use!
