  1. Is anywhere doing pedal repairs at the moment? The person I've used previously isn't responding to emails.

      @The Greek I haven't, I'll give him an email. Thanks!

  2. Paypal Friends and Family is not safe but paying via Paypal Goods and Services is the safest option as the buyer has total protection against any potential scams. That is why most gear pages on Facebook and forums like this usually only recommend buyers use Paypal Goods and Services. This is from UK GUITAR / AMP / GEAR EXCHANGE:
  3. I've got a 2u rack mounted amp in a bit of a clunky flight case that's also far too deep. Any recommendations for tidy shallow 2u cases? I always see nice sleek flight cases, but then online I can only really find bulky Gator-style ones
  4. Yet it's been up for sale for months! Had a few people show interest/arrange collection but then would stop replying... 🙄
  5. Thanks everyone for your suggestions! Really appreciate it! looks like I'll be getting in touch with Dave Wilson and Walshy
  6. I recently stripped down my beat up MM stingray and plan to get it refinished in sunburst, as it originally was. Does anyone have any suggestions for good places to have it refinished? There is a small area on the smaller horn that needs filling in/levelling out, but that should be simple Any places near London/Herts/Beds preferred
  7. I used to have a Foxrox and it was great, but it's worth noting the octave up is distorted, unlike a POG etc
  8. £244 actually! Well if I don't get on with it and you're still after one at some point you can have first dibs 👍
  9. Thanks for the heads up! I took it will let you know how I get on with it
  10. Looking at these myself, not sure whether to go for the regular bass fuzz or the JR
  11. Conveniently sized tuner, nice clear display. +£5 for postage.
  12. Great preamp/DI pedal. Very versatile and is brilliant for both live and recording purposes. Only selling as I have more than one of these. There are few small marks as shown in the pics. Comes with original box. Price includes UK postage.
  13. I bought one of these from the US about a year ago, shipping fees only got calculated upon arrival... eye-watering.... but no regrets, great pedal
  14. Great bass amp, I've owned it since 2011, used for a couple of gigs over the years and packs plenty of power. The flight flight case alone cost £70 new. (Flight case does have lids, not shown in pics) Responsive EQ with bass, middle, treble controls as well as 2 low mid and 2 high mid sliders. Sub-frequency and Valve Drive switches/controls add for even more flexibility. Fully functioning in great condition, never had any issues. One knob missing (see sub-harmonic dial) Comes with power lead. Output power 500 watts RMS Made in China in 2006. Collection or meet up preferred. Any questions drop me a message.
  15. Saw them at the Forum in 2015, was a good show!
  16. Thanks for the tag Peter (and the message before hand) just unfortunate timing that I had to prioritise money elsewhere
  17. Joe Dart doesn't use any pedals and he's great Michael League uses a couple of pedals and he's great Thundercat uses quite a few pedals and he's great Justin Chancellor uses loads of pedals and he's also great Whatever suits your style!

    Amusingly coincidental ad.. Might give them a ring... I'm constantly smelling GAS at the moment...

  19. @worship_mud Ahh I see, in regards to pedal ordering. I have those super flat black EBS patch cables too (the ones with the lightning bolt on) They're so tidy aren't they!! I often lay my pedals out in a non-chain order and use the longer cables to reach behind other pedals (I'm a bit of a sucker for colour co-ordination..) I also keep my amp EQ at around noon as you do and use a Tone Hammer at the end of my board as a universal EQ to keep clean tone and effects even. I get why you have the compressor at the end as a limiter, I have mine before an OC2 and a Future Impact to make sure they get a solid signal and trigger consistently. My compressor (cali76 compact bass) doesn't really colour my tone too much, so having it earlier makes sense on my board.
  20. If you're after something heavier, check out Darkglass' other preamps/drives. their Vintage range is their warmer more classic drive range for sure, compared to the B7k or Microtubes X. I have the Vintage Deluxe (used to own the Microtubes you have) and the additional 4 band EQ is really essential in my eyes. There's nothing wrong with stacking drives as well. If you got yourself something a bit dirtier or heavier, you could always run that before the Darkglass and then use the Darkglass to either boost/add additional drive where needed. I used to do this by running a Rat into a Way Huge Pork Loin. Also in terms of pedal order, I'd personally swap the compressor and envelope filter. I use compression at the start of the chain to ensure my pedals/amp are receiving a consistent even signal (lots of people put it at the end though, but this doesn't really suit my configuration) Applying envelope (and other filters) on top of a pitch shifted tone, rather than pitch shifting a filtered/moving note, makes more sense than the other way round. But there are no rules, whatever works for you. My signal chain is Tuner > Comp > Octave > Synth > Drive > Envelope > Preamp/EQ
  21. Cali76 compact bass compressor at the start of the chain, Aguilar Tone Hammer at the end. 👌
  22. I'm looking for a decent amp head with a smaller footprint, any recommendations? Not looking to spend a ton and doesn't need to be top of the range, will mostly be used for home practice/casual use. I've been considering the Ampeg Portaflex range (as my cab is Ampeg and it's always nice when they match, not essential though)
  23. Knowing how upset I am about my dent (my MM is in the Musicman Porn Thread, and I bet you couldn't even tell me where the dent is from the pic...) I can understand that it probably doesn't feel any better, but from those pics I think it looks a LOT better!
  24. Great seller, Dean got a Tone Hammer pedal to me as described/shown in pics and the delivery process was very quick. Would definitely recommend 👍
  25. One small thing that bugs me is when flatwound silks don't all line up (I'm not talking about when they're just millimetres off, I'm talking a centimetre or more) But my main gripe is usually the colour of the instrument though, imo the only acceptable finishes are white, black, a natural finish or sunburst (and its variants, mocha burst, tobacco burst etc). Primary-colour finishes on instruments are absolutely criminal. It's even worse when all the parts (IE: finish, headstock, fretboard, scratchplate) are all different/clashing shades, as seen on the abomination below.
