  1. I had a Retrovibe bass for a short while. The lightweight tuners on them were very smooth; they may be able to assist if you drop them a line.
  2. I've umm'd and ahh'd about this but I have a wee power amp to use for home practice when my valve head is too much. Bought in 2020 and includes footswitch plus original packaging. Polar seem to be the only UK stockists and this is £832 including delivery, so this is a chance to get one at a decent discount. It's in excellent condition, with only light home use and one band rehearsal. 4 band EQ with voicing and contour controls make this a really versatile piece of kit. The tube overdrive is pretty special too. Not really after trades, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Trials in Bristol most welcome and can discuss shipping. Review is here: https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/30090-Gallien-Krueger-Fusion-800S-bass-amp-head-review Demo's:
  3. Thread resurrection in light of some new demos (second one is for the new cabs using the amp). Not a lot of video material for this so these new vids may be useful, although I find that Patrick guy a bit irritating: https://fb.watch/35J7Vp14Pu/
  4. Regarding the original post, I've read the guidelines online which clearly state no visas are needed for less than 90 days touring in the EU (and likewise for those visiting the UK). Quotes from various agents support this. Not sure this is really a story or just a paper trying to stir up trouble. Anyway, back to looking at pedals and stuff...
  5. No problem. I would be interested to hear the difference!
  6. As mentioned (going on advice from another BC member who did his well) it's worth sanding the fretboard first.
  7. Had one very briefly but sent it back as it was advertised as new but with shop damage. Fit and finish was very good, comfortable neck (although I 'd be tempted to sand it a bit) and sounded...like a jazz bass should. I preferred it to the Fender Pro I tried out but that was from a couple of years ago so not a scientific comparison. I see they are available online for £999; I'd say give one a go!
  8. Ooh now that looks good. Not v wide but long enough to make up for it.
  9. That is the one I spotted! I'd prefer something a wee bit higher and wider though 🤔
  10. Hi all, I'm after a decent sized padded bag / case with separators for storage of cables, leads, strings , IEM box etc. The only one I've seen vaguely suitable online with 6 compartments is just not high or wide enough (only 8"). Had a look at fishing tackle bags and DJ carry cases but nothing has caught my eye. Any ideas welcome. It would need to be at least 60cm long, maybe 25x25cm wide and deep with equal sized compartments.
  11. SOLD HiHi all, my consolidation continues.... I do rather like this but I can easily manage with my long-scale instruments. This is about 7 months old and in excellent condition, fitted with La Bella flats (RRP £40) and comes with a Fender deluxe gigbag. The original roundwounds are included. Cheapest I've seen online new is £750. I've lightly sanded and polished the gloss neck to make it easier to traverse. Also, I've darkened the pau ferro fretboard to a rather more aesthetically pleasing rosewood colour. It's a proper Motown machine and very easy to play! I'm happy to send more photos or do a video walkthrough should you wish. Drop-off at a sensible distance from Bristol is fine or I can post at buyer's cost and risk. I have a couple of other items for sale I can bundle in if desired. I suppose I can sell the strings separately if anyone is interested; they're the ones made especially for the Mustang.
  12. Hi folks, EMG GZR Precision pickup for sale. Lots of talk about these; they make a superb upgrade - only selling as I am trimming down my collection. These seem to be £85 delivered new but with all the connectors and pots. This is just the pickup, wire and screws so the price reflects this. Thanks
  13. SOLD Surplus to requirements, a superb signature pedal from JHS (check our their page and youtube channel). It's a drive and fuzz combined with versatile EQ and options to stack the effects in the order you choose. These are £300 new so this is a good saving. It's in great condition and comes with the original box. I can post at owner's cost and risk. The EQ makes this suitable for bass as well as guitar; check out the videos! Thanks for looking https://www.soundaffects.com/effects-c1/distortion-overdrive-c2/calhoun-v2-mike-campbell-signature-overdrive-fuzz-p7814/s8390 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ3tJxi2bMw
  14. Hi all, I got this to have as part of a home music room as a standalone from my bass rig, but I think a second Stomp will more than happily fulfil my hobbyist noodling needs. It's in excellent condition and has a load of IR's, updated to Firmware 3.0. I can post at owner's risk; I have a suitable box. Alternatively I can meet at a reasonable distance from Bristol. If you have a Stomp you're looking to trade up then let me know.
  15. https://www.eventideaudio.com/products/accessories/power-supply/powermax Great bit of kit, usable for HX stomp etc.
  16. Had no idea this song of his was covered. Mr Hardin was such a talent. I think he died the same week as John Lennon, that news overshadowing his own demise.
  17. No tweaking required from the previous string set - I've had two different brands on before these and the tension seems comparable to both. Not exactly scientific but I don't think you'll need any adjustments.
  18. Just my luck that I buy a cloth-covered one (that doesn't quite match my amp) and then these come up within driving distance! 🥴🥴🥴 Best of luck 👍
  19. Take a look at Gemini pickups. Some excellent choices with proper sound demonstrations. British-made too.
  20. Doh! I even did a search, my bad 🥴
  21. Surprised noone has mentioned Paul Smith from Maximo Park. A deft lyricist whose North-eastern accent really suits the music.
  22. I've put a set on my P bass and they've bedded in pretty quickly. They feel fine, sound bright without being too 'metallic'; if they last as long as is purported, I reckon they would be a decent lower-cost alternative to Elixirs.
