  1. I’m sure it was probably rubbish but I wasn’t in a position to know any better. My second bass was a Hondo Precision , which was truly awful! Big fat neck and an awful action, but again I didn’t know any better.
  2. Same model as my first bass, I paid about £30 for it about thirty odd years ago!
  3. Something with a headphone socket, so you can practice anytime without annoying family/ neighbours.
  4. @peteb, i’m kirky’s mate. Yes I’ve got an R400 which you are welcome to have try on. I’m based in Harrogate if that’s any good for you. Cheers Andy
  5. This is indeed a great amp. I've had mine a couple of months now & never looked back.
  6. Bought a Seymour Duncan SPB3 pick up off Graham. I contacted him on Saturday & received in on Wednesday! Great service & a pleasure to deal with him.
  7. Are they active or passive pick ups? thanks Andy
  8. I've had both a Vintage Modified Precision & Jazz, which were both made in Indonesia. They were both great basses to play and both were lovely sounding. The necks were particularly nice. I still have the Jazz neck, which I put onto a Precision body! I have since got an American Standard Precision which blows both of them out of the water. The sustain goes on forever and the bass feels so much sturdier than the Squiers. That is not to say that the Squiers are bad basses, they are after all still budget range and for the price I think they are fantastic. If they fulfill your needs, then that's all you need.
  9. I thought I’d post some better pictures!
  10. It would definitely be worth it. I looked at a Walkabout that was for sale on here but by the time I'd dithered about to get it or not, it had gone. It must have been fate!
  11. Cheers, it was your posts & review that got me interested. I thought my Ashdown RM500 sounded good but the Handbox just goes to a different level!
  12. I picked up a Handbox R400 last week but I’ve only really had a chance to play it properly today. wow! What a sound, full, grindy & just wonderful! I put it through my Barefaced Two 10 & they just work perfectly together. The levels were set flat for the bass & treble, the gain was set at “crunch” & the contour was off. The drive button was engaged. The sound was a slightly overdriven grind, which was nice I found that the contour makes everything more bassy 6603BEB3-4F71-4ECC-8485-392019805F33.MOV & a touch muffled. I have a rehearsal on Thursday, so will be able to try louder volumes & I may find that the settings need adjusting. I can’t wait to find out! Excuse the playing, it’s just to give an idea of the sound which was recorded onto my iPad.
  13. Sad news tonight, Pete Shelley of The Buzzcocks has passed away!
  14. Received my Barefaced Two 10 S on Wednesday, had a quick play at home which sounded great. Played a gig last night & it was a wonderful sound! Not my ideal sound but full & solid sounding. I will need to adjust the settings to get the best sound but I’m going to enjoy finding it! I'm using my Ashdown RM500 amp which has plenty on versatility so it should be a joyful journey.
  15. What wattage amp do you use with this cab and do you use it as a single cab?
