  1. Or Metallica! Black gloss for me, but had I had an extra £100 to burn they would have been black sparkle to go with the bass!
  2. Sorry, sure you were dreading this question but if you decide to split, can you let me know please? Would be very interested in either the G3 or G4, just what I've been after. Totally understand if that's not the route you want to go though! Many thanks, Rick
  3. Just purchased the same, and echo that feedback!
  4. Great price, this will be gone before the football kicks off I reckon! Love mine, someone is in for a treat!
  5. I don't have any myself, but I'll ask my friendly neighbours and let you know! Edit - Me plus bass equals 14 stone and 0.5 pounds, me without bass equals 13 stone and 4.25 pounds. 14 pounds in a stone (right?) means it's 10.25 pounds, if my calculations are correct?
  6. Thanks - certainly not an exact science on my part so might be closer to that, but doesn't feel it, and I have a naff back!
  7. Having had a look back at the original order, I can confirm it is indeed the vintage type (not that I was aware there was an alternative!)
  8. Thanks! Afraid I have no means to accurately weigh it - not the lightest by any means but definitely manageable, I'd guess under 10 lbs comparing it to my other basses... Sorry that's not hugely helpful!
  9. Hi all, For sale is a Sire V7 bought new from Anderton's in 2018. It's a lovely bass especially for the price, you've probably seen all the reviews online if you're reading this anyway. Selling as I've recently purchased an Alpher bass. I've priced this at c£100 less than others, as the mid range controls on the active 3 band are permanently "flat", and won't boost or cut (or adjust the frequency). The bass and treble, tone and blend work perfectly well, so it is in effect a 2 band eq which is plenty for many, and was never an issue for me as I used it in passive mode anyway! The only other point to call out is that there is little buckle rash on the rear of the bass, and some other little marks here and there. These 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! Only trades I'm looking for are a wireless iem system, but a higher end one (I.e. Sennheiser / Shure) with cash adjustment if required. Thanks, Rick
  10. Star as ever Russ, and thanks for the message which I'll check out! Much appreciated.
  11. So a slightly belated NBD post - I recently picked up my Alpher bass which is one of the more recent basses that Alpher have worked with Tdog Customs on for the finish. I had been looking for a black sparkle finish for some considerable time, weighing up getting a bass resprayed along the way, but ultimately "took the plunge" to go custom with Alpher. It's not a plunge at all, and as ever with hindsight, something I should have done a long time ago; I couldn't be any happier with this bass and the whole process working with the gents at Alpher. I've followed Chris and Al's work for years and have always been blown away by pictures and videos, but when you physically play one... It's another level. Every aspect of the bass is better than I imagined; the craftsmanship is far and away the best I've seen, as is the tone. "Little" details like the inclusion of a branded hard case, and even a proper mini tool are also excellent. Chris kindly knocked up 3 scratch plates to keep it fresh periodically, and I'll add those photos on here as I change them for anyone interested. I could quite literally spend hours raving about Alpher as a company and the bass itself, but most of you probably know it all already, and are just here for the pics, so here's a few to get going!
  12. Hi Russ (and all!), still loving the UE6s, albeit mainly being used for working from home listening at the moment! Our singer has left our band and I used to use one side of her sennheiser G3 wireless iem, which was brilliant and by far the closest thing I've had to a wired sound. Trouble is, I've used a wired signal in the past to get a stereo feed, and I'm hooked... But equally hooked to being wireless (ironically). I've been watching ebay and the marketplace here for a second hand Sennheiser or Shure unit, to no avail - a G3 went on ebay for about £550 in the end yesterday which is probably more than A) I expected or B) would be looking to spend. So, my question, what are the next best options for wireless, or is it simply one that anything below the Shure and Sennheiser lines are noticeably poorer? Wired is livable until funds allow, but I infinitely prefer the freedom of wireless. Any tips appreciated! Thanks.
  13. Relisted with a price drop due to a time waster unfortunately! Hi all, For sale is 1 excellent condition Keith McMillen 12 step, with lightning adaptor to iPad included. I've been running this at home only since buying on here, using the Korg iM1 ipad app (free app), but I have left the band I was going to use it for. The number 3 pedal for some reason has never seemed to illuminate since I've had it - no functionality issue beyond that and when the board is lit, there's absolutely no mistaking where the pedals are! Couple of pictures below but message me if you'd like any more. Happy to post at cost, can't see it being more than £10 insured. Collection also welcome. Many thanks, Rick
  14. Hi there, are there any trade options at all? I have a few items listed at the moment but give me a shout if you'd like to discuss! Many thanks, Rick
  15. Skinner purchased a Warwick Power bank from me - great comms, very swift payment and confirmation of purchase receipt. Top person to deal with!
  16. Hi all, For sale is one excellent condition Sennheiser e901 microphone. What a mic this is. Owned from new when I was doing my bands sound, and used in conjunction with an Audix D6 to what sounded like thunder, however when we recruited an external sound engineer, he used the 901 on its own, to a bigger sound than I ever got in combination with the D6. We no longer do our own PA, hence the sale. Comes with all the original packaging and pouch. Postage is a fiver to UK, but collection is also welcome. Any questions or additional pics needed please let me know. Many thanks, Rick
  17. Hi all, For sale is one excellent condition Sennheiser e945 microphone. These really are great - it replaced a 935 which is fantastic in its own way too, but I felt this really was a step up. Thankfully for crowds everywhere, I no longer sing so this must go! I think it will have seen 6 gigs tops, and no rehearsals, so is practically as new. All original packaging, pouch and mic clip included. Postage for a fiver to the UK, or collection is welcome. Any questions or additional pics needed please let me know. Many thanks, Rick
  18. Hi there, the box for the sennheiser looks like Iem's, rather than guitar wireless? Not being pedantic, I'm just on the lookout for a sennheiser iem system and wondered if that was for sale! Cheers, Rick
  19. Thanks very much Hellzero, had no idea it was such a prize possession! It's now sold subject to the usual, maybe someone has grabbed a bargain?
  20. Hi all, For sale is one excellent condition dualswitch pedal, perfect for use with HX stomp for 2 extra switches. I'll include an EBS stereo TRS cable. Let me know if any more pictures required / questions. Can post for a fiver to UK address or collection welcome. Thanks, Rick
  21. Hi all, For sale is one good condition korg pitch black tuner. I've photo'd up close to show a few minor scrapes but let me know if you need other pictures. Can be run from 9v battery (not included) or power supply. Happy to post for a fiver, or collection welcome. Any questions let me know. Thanks, Rick
  22. Hi all, For sale is 1 good condition leather strap. I'd say great condition but for the velcro having picked up various bits of thread along the way! Works perfectly and is very well made, and extremely comfortable. Very difficult to find a price on these now as I picked this up in a previous package purchase, but I believe these were comfortably over £100 new. I could have that wrong so let me know if so know more! Price includes postage in the UK. Many thanks, Rick
