  1. Quick 'trusted seller' post for Big Bass Man, sent me an MXR bass octave deluxe boxed in great condition, came within 1 day of posting. Cheers! 

  2. What's the deal with 18V preamps, that just seems a total annoyance :/

      OH! I've not personally come across an 18v built-in preamp, my Stingray is 9v.

      What's the annoyance? A lot of preamps (and compressors like the cali76) have to be/can be powered up to 18v to allow for more headroom. A lot of power bricks can give a range of voltages from 9-18 so it's no big hassle really.

  4. I've been playing for 11 years now, mostly self taught and I know a fair bit of theory but I've never actually sat down and learnt scales/modes etc and it's about time I think. Got a friend who's a pro bass player helping me out but any advice/suggestions/resources would be appreciated!

      @Reggaebass oh that reminds me I have lots of similar books here that were given to me back when I started (I was a stubborn teenager and didn't want to learn scales/modes sigh) but better late than never! 
      Thanks for the suggestion

      Oh no of course, I just haven't bought a bass for almost 9 years now and I've been playing a Musicman for that time and have always wanted a Fender since I started playing :) But I'll definitely not write off the Sire!

      @RichOoh I've heard good things, and was actually looking at the natural finish version of this. Good price and looks gorgeous. Might hold out for a Fender of a similar price (the one that sold was a 2nd hand 5 string Jazz). May have found one...

      On that note, I'm buying a 5-string! Show me what you've got! (preferences: Fender Jazz, white or natural finish, but open to all offers)

  9. Hello. Is there any studio/sideman bass player here? ;) I want to ask what producers and engineers want from bass players today. I mean which basses, amps, effects and all king of gear is a must for session/studio player to provide the best demanding sounds and effortless quality in the stage/studio? Really need to change my gear to be most versatile for any scenario as possible. Many thanks!

      Have a look at Dishan Abrahams, and the video he did with That Pedal Show. Super interesting video, gives a general insight into some of this stuff and the gear he uses and how he gets around certain situations (such as synth/keyboard sounds, he sometimes uses a Moog Lil Phatty but often pedals)

  10. Is it not against the rules to post an item for sale on here asking for the buyer to send money through Paypal Friends & Family? If not, it should be!! I see at least 1 scammer get called out on Facebook per week and it's ALWAYS because the buyer sent payment through F&F. 

    1. AinsleyWalker

      Fair enough.. I'm just sceptical as, while I've sold plenty on here, I've only really bought off of FB groups where F&F is banned and for good reason (the constant scamming I mentioned).
