  1. Lesson I've learnt this week is never window shop if you can't buy. My head has been turned....

  2. Anyone else receive a message from monicabrownb asking them to email her? I can't tell if it's a genuine new user who might be interested in something I'm selling, or it's a phishing/spam account.

      'monica' is toast.

  3. 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!

      Cool.

      You could do him a solid and post your comment on his feedback topic.  Feedback for Big Bass Man.

      @SpondonBassed oh yeah totally forgot about those, thanks!

      Thanks man - that's really nice!

  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!

      If you haven’t already got it, I would highly recommend this book, it covers the major and minor scales, and there’s some great workouts, I’ve had it years and I still use it 🙂

      @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

  5. My MuTron Micro-Tron IV arrived today! Taken me a minute to get my head around how to get the tones I want, but first impressions are great!

  6. The day before payday the bass I was looking at on a shop's site gets sold. Typical :(

      I'm having a proper per-Xmas clear out and preparing to sell several 5's, so keep and eye out in the 'basses for sale' section in the next few days...

      3 now listed, a fourth coming later today. Sorry for the shameless plug, but you did say you were looking... 🙂

  7. 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.

      I've used F&F a few times - usually when it's someone I've had some contact / discussion with, and had time to decide whether I have any cause for concern...
      I wouldn't use it for some stranger on a Facebook group though

      Buyers choice, use your common sense......

      If the buyer can’t or won’t collect, them I insist on friends and family, or bank transfer. I know several people who were scammed by people buying stuff, then claiming is not received, damaged, faulty etc. My sister-in-law even had an empty box returned to her by a buyer. 

  8. Typical, multiples of the pedal you want when you don't have the money, and when you do.. None in sight :( Sell me a Cali76 Compact Bass compressor!

  9. Sod's law that someone offers to sell you their pedal as soon as you've given in to waiting and bought a brand new one 😭

      A variant of this is suddenly seeing a pedal on For Sale that you've been waiting for yonks to see, but missing the sale by about 3 minutes...
