  1. Hi alyctes, It's 5cm wide at the nut, 7cm at the octave, 3cm depth at both. Just a bit wide for my small hands, it's bigger than my Yamaha, hence the sale, I would say it's about the same as a Fender 5 string, maybe the neck is a touch slimmer, but is the reason why I don't go for Fender 5's anymore. It's up on Ebay at the moment at a slightly cheaper start price or if you're after it now still available at the price quoted, Cheers Mark
  2. Go on do it Gaucho 5. tis a real beauty and the neck is really smooth, practically brand new for the price!!!!
  3. Up for sale is an almost Brand New Sire Fretless 5 String in beautiful Sherwood Green. ACTIVE & PASSIVE with a huge 18v preamp. I bought this recently from ebay but the neck is too big for my small hands so am gonna stick with my Yamaha 5 string, which the Sire was gonna replace. It's pretty much pristine, the person I bought it from got it from Andertons for about £569ish and I don't think they ever used it. I say it's pristine, however, there's a small blemish on the underside of the body, it also has drill hole(s) for the pickup cover, but bizarrely there's a drill hole on the top side of the body, this could've been sold as a second, not sure, anyway, they're all pictured and I don't believe they detract from this beauty in anyway. Comes with Flatwounds which I can assume are stock Included is the bridge cover and I have some aged white block inlay stickers on order from America which will be included if required (the stand in the pic isn't included) there's also no gig bag as it didn't come with one but have all the original box which is very secure for shipping. PRICE IS £460 INC UK ONLY SHIPPING, COULD BE OPEN TO OFFERS BUT IT'S A GREAT PRICE FOR A NEAR NEW BASS. PRICE DROP £410 INC UK SHIPPING.......FOR QUICK SALE, C'MON GRAB A BARGAIN....................... here's the link to Andertons for the original price. https://www.andertons.co.uk/brands/sire/sire-fretless-basses/sire-version-2-fretless-marcus-miller-v7-swamp-ash-5-string-sherwood-green TECHNICAL BLURB Sire Marcus Miller V7 basses sound better and play smoother than ever before in the 2nd Gen range. The flagship V7 has been kitted out with two advanced single coil pickups bearing a full set of EQ controls, allowing you to mould your perfect personalised tone. Other upgrades can be found made to the neck and fretboard for a new, premium feel. New features The focus of the upgrade has been to improve the overall sound quality and playing comfort of the V7. Marcus Miller worked alongside Sire to redesign the pickups with stronger magnets and coils to deliver a cleaner, deeper tonal palette. Sire have also overhauled the neck design. The V7 now features an extremely comfortable rolled edge fretboard, which you'd usually only find on high-end basses. Neck radius has been extended to 9.5-inches and fretted models are adorned with new medium frets, making for a quicker and more accurate playing experience. The gloss neck coating has been replaced with a much classier satin finish. Its only cosmetic change is to the pickguard, which is also installed on five-string basses as well as four-string variants. Construction Sire like to mix and match woods. The V7 is made of either a well-balanced alder or a slightly brighter swamp ash body. A hard maple neck offers excellent stability and is topped by either a maple or ebony fingerboard. History of Sire Marcus Miller Basses Sire build the now-famous Marcus Miller basses. Marcus Miller is a world-renowned jazz and funk bassist with some of the best bass chops on the planet. He's worked with Sire instruments to make affordable basses - but far exceed their price point in terms of feel, style and above all, sound. How do they do this? Unlike a lot of other guitar companies that outsource their work, Sire own the factory where their basses are built. This means more efficient production and full control over the quality of instrument from start to finish. Sire instruments are doing the world a bit of good by taking a share of corporate profits and giving back to society. They founded schools in Cambodia and Laos to teach children’s music lessons.

  4. this thread has got way too tech-nickel, not seen the Korg G5 before but looks good, but the SY-1 does all that in a COMPACT PEDAL, just missing a few tricks, but begs the question why does the SY-1 make SYNTH so easy on Bass compared to anything else, just a hint to Panda Audio as I believe if Roland/Boss can cram this into a neat(er) package so must they be able to????......
  5. in Liverpool they call it tracky bottoms, just goes to show the wonder of language, and indeed science......
  6. wow Al Krow, that's quite involved, must have a tinker when I get my fretless sire 5 string....
  7. It draws 85mA from a power brick said Boss when I asked them so looks like I'll have to use it with my T-Rex Chameleon......
  8. tis a thing of beauty, wonder how it compares to the older boss silver box synth, that didn't get great reviews if I remember rightly, hence why I never indulged
  9. Thanks for sharing Al, I'll have another mess around with the SY-1 soon, again hope to use it for the cover band to do some of them 80's tunes I keep yapping on about so all settings will be pointing that way...
  10. As mentioned Rollin Thunder it is awesome, but so is the F1, the boss is a neat, smaller unit which fits on your pedal board well. There's a couple of you tube videos that go through each individual sound so you know what it can offer, each variation can be tweaked further with the tone & depth dial, although many are very similar variations of the rest, it's the tracking that's killer on this, even my sloppy play is forgiven whereas on the F1 it wasn't......
  11. Well, I decided to take the plunge and get this....and.....it's f****n great. I love Boss pedals, always have, love their little footprint & design. I've been after a decent Synth pedal for a good while. Had a dalliance with the Future Impact & the EHX Bass Mono Synth and for me this SY-1 pisses over both of them. Don't want to diss the F1, will diss that heap of junk which is the EHX, but this thing tracks better than any I've ever used. The downside is the limitation of sounds over the F1, if the F1 tracked anywhere near as good as this then that would be the obvious choice, it of course may be down to the sounds that the F1 has over the SY-1 that may be the tracking situ, don't know, but the SY-1 has some very, very workable sounds. For me, my target sounds have always been 80's pop, think of all the great synth bass sounds their have been Whitney Houston, Gary Numan, Chaka Khan to name countless others, I haven't delved into emulating Night Shift by The Commodores yet but that's up soon. This wee boyo can handle your Muse type indulgences too, along with more modernistic & experimental tones. So I'd recommend it for those who are looking at this avenue, I'd guess that if it sells well then in a couple of years you'll see a new stomp box with a few more varied sounds and that all important 5-10 preset scenario.
  12. Hi,

    Interested in your Ibanez 5 String Fretless, what's your best price inc UK shipping,

    Cheers, Mark

     

  13. Not exactly sure, pretty standard P Body weight, but not very heavy, neck is very light, pretty heavy lacquer like a japanese model, but overall not heavy at all, extremely well balanced bass, and it's awesome also, tis ending on ebay tonight at 7pm, Cheers Mark
  14. Cameron just bought my Mono Dual Bass Case, really easy guy to deal with, pleasant & totally trustworthy, long distance shipping sale so we never met face to face but not a problem for either of us, credit to Basschat so he is....
  15. thanks for the endorsement, never got on with John East preamps to be honest, always loved the stock fender pre's, just think they match the whole fender thing so well......
  16. was also never gonna part with mine but needs must, bills must be paid, blah, blah.....
  17. Karl knows his Fenders, info is out there, just takes a lot of digging with Fender as with most manufacturers they don't archive info very well, which is a bollox as it's nice to know what's what with all models
  18. I was always under the impression the Passive's were more common place, maybe so in the states as I've seen many more video demos of the passive than the active, poss active aimed more at the european market
  19. Tis an awesome case, just for ref, the extra bag pictured in the stock pic is not included, however the big front pocket will carry fx, as so inside main compartments, the pocket at the top is excellent for batteries n bits etc....
  20. ***SOLD*** *****PRICE DROP £175***** Great quality Electro Acoustic, needs a wee clean, poss new strings, high quality hiscox hard case inc. General The DE6/N is an electro-acoustic guitar with a cutaway and a preamp with a built-in tuning device. Its top is made of solid spruce, which greatly benefits its tone and volume. The cutaway allows you to reach even the highest frets with ease. This affordable solid-top dreadnought guitar is a great choice for beginners as well as advanced players on a budget. Solid top for optimal tone The DE6/N is a natural-coloured acoustic guitar with a solid top of Sitka spruce. Solid wood enhances the body's resonance, giving this guitar more volume and a richer sound than a version with a laminated top - features that allow you to recognise a quality guitar. Chords and notes sound fuller and have longer sustain. Crafter DE6: CR-T TV preamp with 3-band EQ The electric bits of this acoustic guitar consist of a piezo pickup and a preamp. These allow you to connect this guitar with a cable to an amplifier or a mixer, for instance - so no more hassle with separate microphones on stage. The preamp features a three-band EQ (treble, mids and bass), Presence, volume control and a phase switch. As a cherry on top, it has a built-in tuner with a large backlit LCD display.

  21. Superb Quality Gig Bag, more than your average. In excellent condition, only ever used to take to rehearsal, so no heavy use. UK POSTAGE £10, Overseas will be extra. ABOUT THIS PRODUCT A second bass is a must-have on stage or in the studio. But in transit, carrying two bass guitars has always been a necessary evil. We set out to design an elegant solution to this problem. Our driving criteria was to offer each guitar the same protection as our single M80 hybrid case. After a year of prototyping, the Z-form™ design was perfected (patents pending). The end result is an incredibly light weight, extremely rugged Classic Dual Bass Guitar Case. A first of its kind. Go play. 360° PROTECTION DROP-PROOF The patented Headlock™ design provides a level of protection worthy of the finest instruments. Your guitars quickly strap in and remain stabilized during transport. The headstocks of both guitars are suspended inside the case, saving them from both side and rear impacts. STRAP PIN PROTECTION Hi-density foam bumpers divert vertical impacts out and around the case, away from the strap pin. Integral ABS panels deliver hardcase protection at a fraction of the weight. The reinforced outer shell of the case absorbs and deflects hard impact away from the vulnerable areas of the guitar. SMART STORAGE ONE OR TWO GUITARS This patented “zig zag” design creates a completely separate case for each guitar. That means both headstocks are protected with our Headlock™ suspension system and strap pin bumpers. It also means the M80 Dual can be used with 1 or 2 guitars - something you’ll appreciate on the road. Additionally, the Z-form design allows for immediate access to either instrument. TICK-READY Most MONO cases come equipped with the triple D-ring attachments required for the optional Classic Tick Accessory Case, the modular tool case designed to extend the storage capacity of your guitar case. The Classic Tick Accessory Case seamlessly and securely attaches to the case as shown. Some older cases may not be Tick-ready - please contact support if you have questions about the Tick-compatibility of your MONO case. PLUG AND PLAY Everything in its place. Specialized storage compartments put your gear right where you need it. The hidden upper pocket keeps your wallet, keys, and cell concealed. Pen slots double as tool storage. Business card storage and a durable key clip are also included. BUILT TO LAST WEAR IT OUT We build our cases to military specs, using only high-test materials with extreme resistance to abrasion and the elements. Inside, the plush lining protects delicate custom finishes. Outside, the water-resistant Sharkskin™ shell keeps you on the move, rain or shine. 100% animal free. RIVETED HANDLE & HYPALON SOLE Rock solid, industrial webbing handles come standard on MONO cases. Bar-tack stitching and steel rivets reinforce for strength, while high grade webbing provides a super comfortable grip. All M80 cases feature a hard-wearing sole and piping made of Hypalon - the same industrial rubber used to create inflatable military rafts. This sole simply does not wear out.
