  1. I've got a 5 string V7 for sale in the bass section if it's of interest! Great bass, I just can't handle a 5 string so back on a 4!
  2. I have a 5 string V7 for sale in the bass ads here for £300, if you wanted to try out for not much brass! It's not Burgundy though I'm afraid! Brilliant bass, I just can't handle the 5th string so I'm back on a 4!
  3. I had to come up with a very short notice solution when the venue we turned up to play didn't have enough aux channels. I used an Alto zmx52 mixer that we keep for emergencies, took a signal from my bass into one channel, and ran a spare overhead mic into another channel. The overhead was placed on the other side of the stage between drummer and guitarist and pointing to the singers, and worked surprisingly well. I ran my Iem's on a 2 quid headphone extension cable from the Alto mixer as I'd already lent the drummer my behringer P2 for the night. I also dabbled with a stereo mix that night as a result, and now I'm itching to delve further into that, but with "proper" aux channels! The mixer was about 50 quid, and the condenser is a Thomann own brand I believe, in the region of 25 quid. That plus an xlr and you've a very compact and I think affordable option where the ideal aux setup isn't available, as I'd happily use it again. The one caveat I'd add is that I don't sing in this band, so the vocals were lower in the mix naturally as they weren't directly input to my mixer, but I would have them that way anyway. Hope this helps. Rick
  4. Hi - I've had a few PM's asking about the weight, and my response has been that I don't have any scales, unfortunately! A trawl through various sites suggests they are around 9.5lbs on average, so not the lightest but it certainly wasn't an issue for me; I used it with a neotech strap (the bungee type!) and it always felt fine, personally. Thanks, Rick
  5. Loved my clear 535s, reckon yours look better in black! Fantastic universal fit Iem's. "itsmedunc" is a top chap to deal with too, have a free bump. Rick
  6. Very interested, if my bass for sale here sells then I'll be in touch!!
  7. I believe the charming Mr Fuzztube is relatively new here, so starting a feedback thread for him, pleasingly on an entirely positive note. James bought a Sansamp Flyrig from me last week - excellent comms throughout and a pleasure to deal with, deal in confidence. Welcome to Basschat James!
  8. Hi - it's 8 ohm, 250watts. Thanks, Rick
  9. Tha ks Jakester, top piece of gear indeed! We use a soundcraft ui16 mixer, which is in a mixer rack, the top section of which has some rack panels which this was velcroed onto, so was always hooked up to the PA to save about 4 seconds of setup time per gig ha!
  10. Thanks for the tip, it was more the massive HX power supply I was trying to get away from though!
  11. Ah fantastic, and does that seem to work well enough, ie no grounding issues etc? Absolute money saver if so, just the power to sort for the rest... Thanks everyone!
  12. Hi all, sorry if this is answered elsewhere... I currently have the HX stomp, and a smooth audio wireless. I'm looking to add the morningstar midi pedal and a small Di box, and am interested in people's views on both a suitable Di box, ideally under £100, and views on best options to power the whole board? Many thanks, Rick
  13. Excellent piece of kit, bought from new when they were first released and it's been an absolute work horse since. Condition is as expected, good to excellent with just the odd nick as its been rackmounted most of its life. Comes with original tin, however I'm not sure if the power supply is the original... It works perfectly and might well be the original, I just can't recall! Any questions let me know, but happy to post at cost or arrange to meet / collect. Thanks, Rick
  14. **Price drop as I've seen something I would like!!** And so yet again, my 4 yearly process of thinking I can play a 5 string, buying a 5 string and realising I can't has concluded it's current cycle. The victim this time was this lovely Sire V7 bought new from Anderton's in 2018. It's seen 3 gigs, and about as many rehearsals, alongside some home playing. It's a lovely bass especially for the price, you've probably seen all the reviews online if you're reading this anyway. Selling simply as I cannot get my head around 5 strings, as much as I want to! All the flexibility you could want sound wise, with the 18v active circuitry and very usable eq. The only point to call out is that there is little buckle rash on the rear of the bass, and a little mark by the input jack. Both of which are nearly invisible when playing as the pictures should show - the close ups look far worse than the reality. Rest of the bass is in great condition. Happy to arrange collection / meet up / courier (if absolutely essential, though I'd sooner avoid), and any questions / additional photos please let me know. Comes with original box, for what it's worth! Not really looking for trades, and all set for basses (unless you have a musicman special charcoal sparkle!!), but happy to listen to other offers you may have. Thanks, Rick
  15. Good condition bass cab with more kapow than the price suggests. A couple of light nicks in the covering but only very small, and purely cosmetic. The horn is a tad noisy at when it's on full, but certainly not noticeable when playing with a band. Could be that a lot of horns are like that - I always switched it off so I'm not sure! Happy to courier at cost, UK mainland looks to be about £20 with lashings of bubble wrap etc. Collection / local drop off is fine too. Any questions give me a shout. Thanks, Rick
