  1. Lee bought an Opti-Fet comp from me. Top bloke, lots of communication and a pleasure to sell to. The pedal has gone to a good home.
  2. Sold Joe a pedal and can't recommend him enough as a buyer. Top bloke, easy communication - recommended!
  3. Chris just bought a pedal from me; top customer, quick and easy transaction and he even throws in a few jokes in his messages...
  4. I’m having a big clear of some seriously good bass pedals. All these pedals have never been gigged and come from a smoke-free environment. They will be posted via Royal Mail, insured and properly packaged in bubblewrap to keep them safe. All prices include postage. FEA Opti-Fet price drop - £200 Sold First off is an FEA Opti-Fet compressor which I bought direct from Frank in Feb 2017. It’s been a favourite since then but I’m struggling to justify keeping it (also have an Cali76 CB and an Empress Bass Compressor - despite the Opti-Fet’s gorgeous warm sounds, I really prefer comps with a blend knob). It’s never been gigged and comes from a smoke-free environment. Apart from the chips in the paint work you can see in the photos, it’s in excellent condition. Check out the great review in Ovnilab as well as the builder’s webpage here. For those of you with a ShiftLine Olympic, this compressor is sublime in its loop Solidgoldfx Funklite price drop £120 (SOLD) Nifty little filter pedal in excellent condition. Lightly used and still looks new. From the website: Only three controls: Depth, Freq(uency) and Attack. A toggle switch changes the direction of the sweep. Depth adjusts the intensity of the filter sweep, from shallow cuts to deep scallops, while the Freq control adjusts the center frequency of the sweep. The Attack control adjusts two parameters at once—the sensitivity of the filter opening and the decay of the overall tone. As you might expect, these three controls are incredibly interactive, with a multitude of funktions on tap. Broughton Audio Resonant Filter Equalizer £200 (Sold) Next up, another rarity from across the pond. Broughton Audio’s Resonant Filter Equalizer is an amazing HPF, LPF and mid EQ combo with resonance control on the filters. This is an amazing shaper of your bass sound helping to tighten up the low end and smooth out HF pedals like fuzz or synth. I also have a Broughton Studio One (which will never leave me) and the small Always On HPF and even though the RFE is the more versatile HPF/LPF, the other two are mainstays on my two boards and the RFE hasn’t been used in several months. It’s in excellent condition apart from a few scuff marks on the right side near the top (see photos). Damnation Audio MBD2 overdrive/distortion £180 (Sold) A very versatile distortion pedal which excels at light overdrive as well as in-your-face distortion. Has a parallel clean channel too to keep the bass intact. I used it 99% for overdrive and it’s up there with the best I’ve used over the years. It’s in excellent condition. Aguilar Grape Phaser £130 (Sold) Lovely phaser with a very simply interface - just find your sound and forget it. Definitely not one for the knob twiddlers but if you just want one great phaser sound, this is your pedal. I tend to go through phases with my modulation choice (excuse pun) so this is on it’s way out to be replaced by a flanger (again…).
  5. And sold! Thanks for looking and for all the comments!
  6. No, I ordered it direct but that one Mark sold was an inspiration for sure (if you look carefully, you can see that one is MW-070 and mine is MW-075; mine doesn't have the dummy coil either). FWIW, I've just paid my deposit for the next one (Midwestern 2, 32" neck, black body, jatoba fingerboard, black pickguard and bi-sonic pup) - should be ready by December 😀
  7. Price drop: £1800 A Serek Midwestern short scale (30.5 inch) with Dunlop flats and Jake's B90 pickup (passive). The bass weighs 3.2kg (7.05 lbs), balances well and is a ton of fun to play. The body is made of African mahogany (Khaya spp.) I'm selling it to fund my next Serek build. Current new price as specced is £2490. More details here: https://www.serekbasses.com/basses/midwestern/ In Jake's words: "The Midwestern is a short-scale powerhouse that is compact in size, but does not lack in tone. Think P-bass meets EB-0. The Midwestern is made up of a lightweight Mahogany body and a 30.5″ scale Mahogany set neck making it effortless to play, and easy to travel with. Inspired by vintage Midwest-bred designs, this is our simplest and most utilitarian offering. However, updated with modern hardware and electronics as well as effortless playability, you won’t believe this is just a humble short scale bass!" Nut Width: 1 5/8″ Nut Type: Bone Scale Length: 30.5″ Frets: 20 Med/Wide Nickel Fingerboard Radius: 12-14″ Compound Body Thickness: 1 3/8″ Overall Length: 40 5/8″ Weight: 7 lbs Tuners: Hipshot Ultralite Bridge: Hipshot 2 Point Supertone Finish: Nitro Lacquer ORIENTATION: Righty FRETS: Fretted FINGERBOARD WOOD: Jatoba PICKUP: Serek B90 BODY FINISH (SEE SPECS SECTION FOR COLOR CHART): Solid Color Satin TV Yellow PICKGUARD (HEAD BADGE WILL MATCH UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED): Brown Tortoise TUNING KEYS: Lollipop STRINGS: Dunlop Flatwound GIG BAG: Standard Gig Bag
  8. Update 10th Feb: SOLD elsewhere David Barber's classic little EQ pedal. It's in excellent condition with velcro on the bass. Postage included to the UK. Price new in the UK (with postage, VAT &Royal Mail fee) is approx £154. from the website: The compact Linden E.Q. brings those golden tones of yesteryear to your modern bass rig, the Linden E.Q. captures the sweetest and most recorded bass E.Q. circuit in a simple foot operated box. The Barber Linden is a ultra high headroom device that employs a sophisticated power scheme to draw 25 working DC volts from a standard 9 volt supply, resulting in far superior headroom over a standard 9 volt powered pedal. The E.Q. circuit is derived from the great flip top amps that were manufactured in Linden New Jersey, our new pedal pays homage to these great portable bass amps and their excellent eq. The Linden's eq is a perfect balance tight and powerful low band with a seductively sweet high band that is somehow "charmingly aggressive" without any abrasive shards that could offend. The new compact version has two toggle switches to allow you to choose from EQ curves for aggressive upper mids, open highs, or softer mids for aggressive playing styles, and the second toggle allows you to choose between normal, bright and tight input path. Improve your bass rig today with a Barber Linden E.Q. 4.4"x2.4"x1.1" enclosure Powered by standard 9 volt - tip supplies.

  9. Sure, it shouldn’t take much to get a quote from UPS.
  10. I sold a G&L LB100 to Alain. He's a great communicator, the payment was quick and easy and a he's a joy to sell to. Thoroughly recommended and a credit to this site.
  11. Weight: 8lbs No trades thanks. Mensinger Cazpar 5 string 32” scale bass. This is a recent custom order with Adrian and is ‘as new’ condition. It was ordered in strung E to C (and I haven’t changed them). I’m selling it as I just not into five strings (tried twice, lesson learned this time hopefully…). This bass was delivered in early September and is in mint condition (I’ve maybe spent 3 or 4 hours playing it). Tempted to order this again in a 4-string version; it’s a great player, excellent build quality and I’d definitely go for the Haeussel PJ set up with the Aguilar preamp again. 32” is a lot of fun too. I still have the double-wall cardboard postal box; price includes insured postage to mainland UK, pm me for a quote to Europe. I also have a G&L LB100 for sale too. Specs: Solid-body alder body with an eye poplar top wood. Body Finish: Matte Neck Construction: Bolt on Neck Wood: Hard Rock Maple (1-piece) Neck Finish: Matte Nut Width: 45mm Fingerboard Wood: Katalox Fingerboard Inlays: White Acrylic Dots Fingerboard Radius: Without Radius Headstock Type: Matching Headstock (Natural) Headstock Logo Mensinger 'White' Pickup Combination Split Coil/Single Coil Set; neck pup Haeussel PB 5 SPC, bridge pup Bridge Pickup Haeussel JB 5 HB Onboard preamp: Aguilar OBP-2 TK, active 2-band Hardware Color Chrome Bridge Spacing: 19mm Bridge Type: Standard Big Knobs Type: Dome-Style Tuner Type: Standard Y-Style String Type: Nickel (EADGC) Nylon Gigbag Medium Size tee-shirt (unworn!) Weight: 8lbs. Mensinger Cazpar
  12. SOLD I ordered this from the US in 2015 and I’ve been the sole owner since. It’s a custom build G&L LB-100 in jet black with an empress body and a quarter-sawn maple neck. This is an extremely lightweight bass at 7.5 lbs. It’s in excellent condition - with only a few minor scuffs on the back (see photos). Specs: Body: Jet Back empress body Neck: Bolt-on quarter-sawn maple with matching finger board (G&L #12 Modern Medium C, 1 5/8 inch nut width and 7.5 inch radius). Satin Vintage Tint finish. Scale: 34” Pickup: G&L LB100 Alnico Frets: Medium Jumbo Tuning keys: Custom G&L Ultra-Lite Bridge: Leo Fender-designed G&L Saddle-Lock with chrome-plated brass saddles Electronics: Volume & Tone, passive. Case: Deluxe Tolex hardshell It’s strung with an unused set of round wounds. It comes with all the original case candy. Postage included: will be insured & delivered via UPS to mainland UK (please contact me if you live in remote rural areas like the Lake District, Highlands etc as they up-charge for those deliveries). It will be fully protected in double-wall cardboard packaging and bubble wrap. Check out my Mensinger Cazpar 32" fiver too If you live close to Edinburgh you’re welcome to come round and try it.
  13. Oh yea.... although back then the exchange rate was more favourable!
