  1. BUMP! Really need this gone soon, listening to offers
  2. (SOLD) Bought from Bass Direct in early 2020. Currently in the same condition I received it in. Best 5 string I've played at this price point, big punchy sound with a very versatile EQ. Small mark on headstock and small ding in the back shown in pictures. Active three band EQ, Humbucker pickup and two single coil modes selectable with the 3-way switch. Jack socket professionally replaced. Pickup from Clapham Junction preferred but can meet within a reasonable distance. Does not come with a case.
  3. Thanks for the tips. It's working for now, with a new fuse in. But I will aim to replace it when I'm able to. Not good at all...
  4. @Stub Mandrel Problem solved, just needed a new fuse as expected. I put a 3A fuse in the UK plug adapter and all is working as expected. But to answer your questions, The EU AC adapter was plugged into the UK plug adapter, I then plugged that into an extension cable which caused the sparks and all my electrics to go off. My brick was not connected to the AC adapter when this happened (which was just an oversight, I would normally connect that first). And yes I agree the Thomann adapters are great, I ordered an Eden combo from them a while ago which came with the type of adapter that you're describing.
  5. I've just checked my emails and it turns out I ordered this from Gear4Music, so I have no idea why it doesn't have a UK plug...
  6. Thanks for the reply. So do you think the entire power adapter is finished? It wasn't plugged into the brick at the time, so that would not have been affected. It sparked when I plugged it into a cheap extension cable. I've since binned that extension cable. I've since tried my adapter from a different extension cable but it is not powering the brick.
  7. I'm using a Palmer PWT 12 to power my board (https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Palmer-PWT-12-Pedalboard-Power-Supply/2H1U?origin=product-ads&gclid=Cj0KCQiAtJeNBhCVARIsANJUJ2EaUvoVsWY9YcCD5E6RH0i0j_skk8t8b8088_sy1x75KBzUGreIyxsaAk9yEALw_wcB) Never had any issues with it until today. I just plugged it into the usual extension cable I use to practise and it sparked, knocking off all the electrics in the flat, bar cooker power and lights (none of my pedals were connected to the power brick at the time). I've got all the plugs etc back on, but my power supply adapter isn't working. Mine has a European plug and has a UK plug adapter (provided by supplier at time of purchase) EDIT: I have just checked my emails, and I ordered from Gear4Music at the end of 2019, so I have no idea why it has a European plug. The UK plug adapter has a fuse inside, so I planned to replace that and try hooking it up again. However when comparing the info on the fuse to the info on the UK plug adapter, there are differences The fuse itself says: 13A, 250V, BS1362 The UK plug adapter says: FIT 3A (5A) FUSE BS 5733 250V 2.5A (5A) I know very little about this kind of thing so I am hoping someone might be able to help me with the following: A) Was the wrong fuse in there? B) What kind of fuse I need to go and get now? Thanks! EDIT: Replacing the old fuse with a new 3A fuse has solved the problem, thanks!
  8. Trying to sell gear on FB marketplace is torturous. I swear people get a kick out of wasting your time.

      “What’s your best price?”


      Well my best price would be enough to pay off my mortgage but I doubt you’d find that reasonable 🤣

      My response would be "What's your best offer?".

  10. Great bass preamp/DI pedal with tons of power and flexibility. Bought new last year and only been used at home, in great condition. Comes with original box. Collection from Clapham Junction or can post for an extra £5
  11. I've bought a pedal on another site that is collection only, I'll be able to collect it in a few weeks when I'm in that part of the country, but I'm considering requesting that I just arrange a courier on my end. Does anyone have suggestions for best places to go for this?
  12. It's a great compressor. Been on my board for almost 3 years now and can't see it leaving any time soon! Oh perhaps I misread your post, I thought you said octave was the one (out of octave, reverb, chorus) you weren't enjoying as much. The OC5 looks great from demoes, yet to try one myself though. Would also recommend checking the MXR Bass Octave Deluxe, they're often available for sale <£90 here/Facebook marketplace etc. They're a really great all-round octaver, compared to the Boss ones which have their own distinct character (which I love personally).
  13. Thoroughly misleading at first glance haha...
  14. Got a Cali 76 Compact Bass at the start of my board. I love that it has 2 volume controls, 1 for your clean signal and 1 for the compressed signal, so you can blend in the two. Also has a high pass filter, so you can apply less compression to your lower frequencies, if needed. I'm a fan of trying sounds/gear out with cheaper pedals before you commit to something more pricey, that's what I've always done. Worth a shot with one of the ones you've mentioned to see if compression is something that you need/want to use. Handy tool to have either way. You mentioned playing a lot of laid back stuff, I've often heard bassists turning their compressors off for those kinds of songs, as they don't need the sustain etc and want the notes to decay naturally. Depends what works for you What octave are you using may I ask? I've tried a few over the years, Octron, MXR bass octave.. All ended up being sold except the trusty OC2.
  15. Haha not your doing, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing your rig, very nice ! I've only just seen as I haven't been on lately.
  16. Hi all, Interested to see what people are using in their racks, whether in a recording/studio setup or a live rig! I've always had a rack amp unit but no other units and there's a few I may go for in the future, for recording purposes rather than live.
  17. Update for anyone interested, I've been using the head DI'ed into my interface with no issues. Nice clean signal 👍
  18. Thanks 👍That's what I meant to say in my first option, I said tube but meant valve.
  19. Thanks, good shout. Thanks for the reply, mine was built 2006 (checked serial with Ashdown previously).
  20. I've been reading conflicting answers to this question.. I was considering using my Ashdown ABM EVO II 500 as an on-desk DI option without a cab, however I'm not sure if it's safe to do so. Some sources say you can run DI out of solid state amps/hybrid amps without a cab/load box, where as you should not do this for valve amps* Other sources say that you should not run a head without a cab at all, whether they are solid state, hybrid or tube. If anyone has the answer I'd be grateful, thanks
