  1. OK. Most of my guitars are red, apart from the purple one. So indeed it is a matter of taste. Though I still think relic-ing a guitar is like buying a new car then scaping it along a garage wall and then driving it into a bollard so it looks like it has been around the block a few times!
  2. I see an interesting looking bass on the For Sale Forum, so click to look at it. But someone has thrown it downstairs, or skimmed it across a gravel drive. What it's meant to look that way? You mean someone took a nice new bass and beat it up, taking chunks out of the lacquer. Why would someone do this, indeed why would anyone pay to have this done to a bass guitar? Beyond my understanding. Then it gets advertised as 'in good condition'. No - its been mutilated!
  3. Is this still up for sale? No postings for some months now.
  4. Lots of really useful posts about good sound, PA mix and the physics of sound and hearing. Thanks guys, lots of things to discuss with our band. I recently went to see a favourite band of mind that had recently reformed. Really looked forward to it. I got rather nervous when my trouser legs started flapping to the bass and kick drum. Left before my ears bled. Would have left faster if my shoes had not been sticking to the floor where the beers spills had been left (an aside). I got me wondering how much it is due to the young sound engineers listening to lots of drum and bass and thinking that is what the sound should be like.
  5. Does the sound hole mean that you can get a reasonable volume as an acoustic base? For practice it would be good to avoid having to use an amp.
  6. [b]TC Electronic [/b][b]BG250[/b][b]-[/b][b]208 bass combo with user manual and power cord.[/b] New cost is now £360 (without upgraded speakers) [b] Features / Specifications[/b][list] [*][b]Watts: [/b]250 Watt [*][b]Bass Tuner: [/b]Built-in 6 String Tuner [*][b]Driver: [/b]2x8" custom driver (upgraded - see below) [*][b]Bass: [/b]Cut at 80Hz / Boost at 100Hz [*][b]Mid: [/b]Cut at 500Hz / Boost at 800Hz [*][b]Treble: [/b]Cut at 1,800Hz / Boost at 2,500Hz [*][b]Weight: [/b]11.75 kg (before speaker upgrade - see below) [*][b]Dimensions: [/b]11.5" x 12.6" x 18.3" [/list] In very good condition except for two small marks on the side (very thin) tolex and a minor nick on the metal grid. Both original speakers have been replaced with new Fane Sovereign 8-225 speakers. So now, this is a 14 kilo combo that can truly handle 250 Watts under 4 Ohms thanks to the Fane's, that are rated at 8 Ohms each (so 4 Ohms both). These turn this already good combo into a real powerful machine with a lot more headroom. (Beware that you can't use any extension speaker without being sure to blow the power amp !!!)

  7. Last bump, before being withdrawn from sale. Great combo at a bargain price.
  8. Easter bump - and price reduced from £150 to a mere £125
  9. That's one of the prettiest basses I ever did see. If I was after a 5 string I would grab it.
  10. Bump - courier now an option. Delivery may be possible
  11. A moment of pedantry - how can a 'road worn' bass be in 'like new' condition? :-)
  12. PRICE NOW [s]£150[/s] £125 Popular combo with warm tone and lots of power. Now out of production. Lives in Haslemere, Surrey. Collection preferred due to weight. Courier possible at cost. Also travel along M1 and M40 regularly so may be able to deliver. Excellent condition, its had an easy life. Though never sure about the accuracy of the VU meter, as on all my past Ashdown gear it seems more for decoration. Even the manual says 'gives an indication'. Comes with manual. Can't upload picture, but easy to find on Google with full specs.

  13. Purchased a TC 208 combo from Tony. Delivered quickly, well packaged and in excellent condition. Very helpful, lots of communication . Would recommend as a seller.
  14. Forgot to say - it lives near Guildford, Surrey
  15. For sale, my Ashdown 1 x 12" combo. Excellent condition, though the Vu meter does nothing more than give a pretty light. Loads of eq and effects options. Its heavy at 25Kg, so pick up preferred. Though I do regularly travel M1 and M40 so could arrange meeting place.
