  1. A single piece of a single piece solid Ash wood large enough for a bass build. Bought from Germany sometime ago. Postage to be added. I was about to Ebay this but hopefully someone may hopefully stop me doing that! I do not have exact postage costs (if its needed and any collection meet up can be arranged) but a 'guide' from the "Parcel2Go" website using a packed size of 60x40x6cm and weighted @ 6kg .... UPS gave £8.64 insured and £6.84 uninsured. (Ebay UK prices show an average of £13/-15 for similar goods so please do check and decide yourself).I can drop this off near me to a few different 'drop off' shops but I will leave it up to the buyer to decide on their choice of courier and even better if you sort that yourself and I can deliver to a shop nearby for collection.

    Soldering Iron Recommendations

    I was given for xmas a soldering station .... mine was about £45/50. It will keep the iron at the chosen temprature...be careful what setting you use. there are a number of manufacturers around starting here... https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=solder+staion&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR10.TRC2.A0.H0.Xsolder+station.TRS0&_nkw=solder+station&_sacat=0

    https://www.theguitarden.co.uk/basses This guy is in Petersfield Hampshire. He has a 33" scale @ £650.
  5. HMarkbass Octave pedal in nice condition and all working, used but not abused. Marks along the side are from being on the pedal board. This is one of two octave pedals I have so I'm making room on the board by moving this Markbass one on. Power by 9v battery or 9v-12v pedal power supply. I'll leave the Velcro on the underside. I don't know if I still have the box. No power supply plug with this. Off Markbass website... Input: mono ¼” jack Input impedance: 500 Kohm / 2 Vpp Output: mono ¼” jack Output impedance: 100 ohm/6Vpp Controls: Dry/Oct1/Oct2 -∞ ÷ 0dB Dimensions: 81.8 x 54.8 x 124.5 mm / 6.7” x 5.7” x 2.4” Weight: 350 g / 0.77 lbs Power requirements: DC input: +9/+12VDC or standard 9-volt battery
  6. Here is the Parcel2Go page I mentioned (and just added above!) with an address at the bottom of the page. https://www.parcel2go.com/content/about.aspx I'm afraid I cannot find the phone number.
  7. I don’t think I have any numbers still but will look around. Parcel2Go page attached with their address at the bottom. They say they in their explanation here that they are a ‘comparison website’ and we would guess that is why they cannot pursue lost package claims but have to relay back to the courier. It is probably best to use their site for comparison of prices Andy then see if the actual courier site has a similar price. https://www.parcel2go.com/content/about.aspx
  8. Good luck. Same problem here with Parcel2Go (thought previous use had been good). I did eventually get a phone number and it may have been through the FB messages. My seller had picture proof of correct packaging and more importantly, a picture of the drivers collection sticker on the package. I also mentioned in a message about asking 'an' ombudsmen what my rights were!

    Reducing neck thickness

    Are you an experienced woodworker, because If you already have this router setup and are used to it, then you might be okay but I would think that if you are a novice a hand held router could be dicey, they can ‘kick’ like crazy dangerous. Heavy duty sanding down may be a safer approach and easier to gauge how much wood / neck thickness you are taking off.

    Just bought fake D'addario strings or not ?

    Obviously somewhere in the world is a factory churning false strings out for whichever brand they can copy..... and as an aside, Shure mics are the most ‘faked’ mics out there. I was told by Shure UK a few years ago that Shure continually find and get the Chinese authorities to close down these fake factory sites.

    Just bought fake D'addario strings or not ?

    The fake ones I bought had the correct colour ball ends but put next to a legit D'Addario set the shade of each ball end colour of the fake set was easily seen to be different from the D’Addario set.

    2 Blown Amps - Advice Required Please!!!

    Yes as Norris says, check all cables first, check internal wires of the cab are intact too as they can on some internal connectors work loose and maybe touch other terminals or actually come away.

    Just bought fake D'addario strings or not ?

    Open the cardboard pack. Inside the sealed strings have a serial number on the packet that cross references online with D’Addario,s website. Go to the website and search for ‘Play Real’ where you are asked for your email address and the next page will ask for the serial number which is checked and immediately tells you if they are fake or ‘Real’. I ve been sold fake strings before, their volume was way down on a ‘real’ set. The package colouring was slightly off and the ball end colours were slightly off too.
