  1. I might be interested in the BB414. I just can't get on with 5ers so I was thinking of stringing one as BEAD for those songs that call for it. It's not like I mess about with the G string too often anyway. I know my place and I definitely get string vertigo.
  2. I thought you and the guitarist must be brothers, but hadn't noticed that there were five of the other guy! Good cloning and great playing - very tight.
  3. It is because you work so hard that you deserve those nice shiny new basses! Go on, you know you want to...
  4. Are we doing a little bit of man maths here to help justify a BBPH purchase?
  5. Yeah, I ducked out a long time ago. Mainly as I've just bought a second hand Sadowsky NYC and thought I might be in real and physical danger from the wife if I'd actually won the auction!
  6. I need a BEAD strung guitar, so I might chance a cheeky bid or two!
  7. I've just bought Rich's gorgeous Sadowsky NYC Will Lee 4. An absolute gent to deal with, really good communication and let me have a little space and time to noodle on his kit before making the decision.
  8. Just sold a GSS Baby Sumo to Jake and the whole transaction was as smooth as butter. Good communication and a pleasure to deal with.
  9. Essentially brand new. Never gigged - just one rehearsal session - and only being sold as I bought it out of curiosity rather than need and frankly my footwork is sub-par. Now I'm after a rather nice guitar and this is on my list of gear for sale... This is the new Ditto looper with the mics so that it will stretch and compress your loops to keep time with your drummer. Watch the videos to get a feel for how they work. It is damn clever and very effective. Here's the official video: There is more detail on the Ditto Jam X2 Looper product page plus the in depth Andertons video. It includes the box and the extension mic so that you can get it closer to the snare and bass drum rather than your cab. 24 bit, unlimited overdubs and relatively simple operation. I didn't upgrade the firmware - and an update is available - so I'd recommend that to whoever buys it. Price includes delivery (Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For), but take a fiver off if you are picking up locally.
  10. These are the best pedals you never realised you needed. Here's the video that @BassedinBucks mentioned: Get some decent headphones on and see if you can hear the difference. You can definitely see it!
  11. ... and sold! Not surprised that this went quickly as these are quality envelope filters.
  12. EHX Bass Big Muff Pi. Good fuzz pedal. I love the dry mode - a standard level dry bass signal is passed through and then you use the volume to control how much fuzz and distortion is blended in. Gives you a bit more definition. The pedal has velcro underneath. No PSU or box. It is surplus to requirements as I bought @AxelF's Russian Big Muff Pi to take up a little less space on my Pedaltrain Nano+, all so I could squeeze just one more pedal on there! (I wish that one had the dry mode as well...) £40 delivered, or £35 for local pickup. Manual attached as PDF.
  13. EHX Micro Qtron envelope filter. Velcro on the bottom and no box. I've just tested it out and it is working, but the 9v input is a bit dodgy. I got a stable input once it was at the right angle. So, it is OK for home use, but I wouldn't trust it on a stage unless you fixed it internally or used something like Sugru mouldable glue to fix a cable to it. (I've dropped the price to reflect this.) Will be packaged in bubble wrap and a 6x4x3" box and send Royal Mail 1st Class signed for. If you are local and can pick it up then i'll take a fiver off the price. Good entry level pedal into the world of envelope filters. I have attached the manual in PDF form. micro-q-tron.pdf
  14. Robert Keeley's compressor pedals have been an established standard for analog compression. And here we have the 4 knob classic, in an unusual purple colour and all in good working order. No box or instructions as this was one of the first pedals I bought ten years ago. (After all, the first bass pedals are surely tuner, high pass filter and compressor, aren't they?) £120 delivered, or remove a fiver for pickup. Oh, ignore the red dot in the photos - it turns out that was a bit of fluff from our carpet. Manual attached, but also worth reading Robert's page on how compression works for https://robertkeeley.com/2013/07/manic-compressive/ as it helps to explain the controls and how they can help your overall levels. keeley_compressor.pdf
  15. T Rex Fuel Tank Junior effect pedal power supply. Comes with an extra long figure of eight power cable plus five cables to hook up to pedals. No box, but will be delivered in a 6x4x3" box. These power supplies have really good isolated outputs to remove buzz from your pedals, and are slimline enough to fit under a Pedaltrain Nano. That is where it has been for me, hence the scratches on the top face. No idea why I didn't mount it the other way up, but purely cosmetic and no-one sees these usually. The Fuel Tank Jr was only superseded by a more expensive 1 Spot CS6 as I bought a couple of power hungry digital pedals. Price is £50 delivered (UK mainland only. Take a fiver off if you pick it up locally. Specs: 5x 9V DC (120 mA each; 600 mA total) Electrically isolated outputs Voltage selector from 115 to 230 V Red LED lights up when in operation Incl. 5x 50 cm DC cables and 1x mains power cable Dimensions without packaging (W x H x D): 100 x 38 x 78 mm Weight: 0.47 kg
