  1. @Happy Jack Do it - I would but I'm at completely the wrong end of the country. If you get it down to nearer the centre of the country and change your mind then I'll register my interest.
  2. Me too. I have a 1/2 size Zeller which sounds fantastic! Someone should get a lovely bass here.
  3. @knicknack Thanks - I may get in touch with them as well. Had a quote from Devon Strings Workshop in Exeter but I wasn't sure how much bass work they do.
  4. I think you're right - I spend far too much energy and cash chasing the 'right bass'. If I made a quick decision and put that energy into practicing I'm sure I'll get further on the journey!
  5. Resurrecting this thread from the dead with a little update ... Had this up for sale but by the time I got a nibble I decided I may well keep it. The bass I bought to 'replace' it turned out to be a 1/2 size Zeller (not 3/4 as advertised and in fairness to the seller he did send me dimensions). That said, it sounds and plays fantastic so it's stayed but I couldn't quite let this go and only keeping a Zeller so it's still with me. I'm now thinking about having a new bridge fitted which I've been quoted £250 + vat. I'm down in South Devon so options are a little limited. I don't really know what I'm asking here - I guess it's 'is it worth getting the work done'! At the moment there's a wide gap between the sound of both basses (the Zeller sounds considerably more pleasing to my ear) but I suspect a lot of that could be caused by the poor contact of the bridge on the body on the Stentor. I don't want to get into a debate of should you play a 1/2 or 3/4 size bass. If it sounds good and I can sit in the pocket on it I don't really care!
  6. Phil Jones Bass C4 in good condition. These are fantastic little cabs. I'd be hanging onto it but I've been tempted by some other cabs which I don't really need and in all honesty this hasn't been out since I got my Tricky Audio F112. That said the above is no reflection on the quality of this cab - it really is amazing for its size. If you're looking I'm sure you know. Happy to discuss courier at your cost and risk.
  7. Damn - very generous offer! Would have been perfect for mini mixer into my sampler. Snoozer and lose(d).
  8. Some love for this head but no bites on the line. Is it the terrible gigging situation at the moment or have I priced this wrong?
  9. I'll be sad to see this one go but it's not getting used at the moment and I've decided to hang on to my Tecamp Black Jag & now have an AI Coda for upright gigs. This is basically 2 amps in one box. You can run them independently or bridge them. 900W and plenty of control over your sound. I bought it when I was doubling on EUB and bass so could run two separate channels but there are lots of possibilities of how you might run this. Footswitch, carry bag and manual included but not sure if I have the cable but they are easy enough to source (I never used the footswitch). More info at bassdirect here - https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/TEC_AMP_Bona_Fide.html Usual caveats that I may have bought this here and if anyone thinks pricing is wrong then please DM me. I can't recall what I paid for it but thought it was around this price. It's certainly worth it for effectively 2 amps!
  10. Let me know if I've got the price on this wrong. I could do with moving it on although appreciate being in the South West we're a little out the way!
  11. Now listed in the for sale threads - Thanks to the mods for allowing me to post the request for help with a valuation and thank you all who contributed to this post.
  12. I picked this up with the intention of getting the work done on it to bring it back to life. It's solid and playable but the bridge probably needs some work and the neck has gouged 'position' markers in the side (which I think are actually wrong as the bridge was well out of position when I got it). That all said, it's playable and has plenty of volume. The body is in pretty good condition for its age and it's solid. When I bought it, it had a kids toy lodged inside and the bridge was well out of position. The tailwire snapped when I tried to bring it up to tension but all those issues have been sorted. I can't recall what strings are on it but they're good and fairly low tension. I drilled the bridge for a Wilson K4 (overkill?) So it does have 4 small drilled holes in it. The pickup has now been removed and is not included in the sale (nor is the wolftone eliminator pictured). I've now picked up another bass so can't see myself spending the money on this and can't really justify having 2 Double Basses. All in its a good solid beater bass and with some work could be a good gigging bass. I'll add some more photos later when I get a chance but any questions please let me know. Needless to say collection only preferred unless you can arrange your own private courier to collect and deliver the bass but any risk would be yours.
  13. Ouch! Thanks for the opinions. I'll sleep on it but you may well see it listed here shortly - I'll need to sort out my subs first.
  14. Thanks chaps. There's nothing major that needs doing to the body that I'm aware of and agree that I'm sure with some work it would make a solid gigging bass. I'm now having 2nd thoughts about moving it on but having just picked up an Andreas Zeller Stentor from here I don't think I have space (or need if I was totally honest) for both. Overall this feels bigger than the A.Z and a little heavier.
  15. Not sure if this post is allowed so apologies if not but need some help valuing this bass before I decide to release it back into the wild. I'll caveat that if I do end up with a direct sale through here I'll ensure I've a valid marketplace subscription. I picked this up with the intention of getting the work done on it to bring it back to life. It's solid and playable but the bridge needs some work and the neck has gouged 'position' markers in the side (which I think are actually wrong as the bridge was well out of position when I got it). That all said, it's playable and has plenty of volume. I've now picked up another bass so can't see myself spending the money on this (unless you lot convince me otherwise!). Any idea of what it's worth now and also once up to spec would be helpful. The Wilson K4 pickup will obviously come off (which sounds great but I'd expect it too!).
