  1. Bought some pickups from Frank; lovely guy to deal with and he provided extra info by way of a note with the package. Thank you!
  2. And, if not mentioned already (apologies if so), the XR18 allows individual track recording. Ideal for doing live demo clips for promo purposes.
  3. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  4. I think Lesczek recommends up to 5 mins warm up time, but I don't know if that is just playing it safe, not being a valve amp expert. I use mine with a BB2. It is excellent.
  5. Out of interest, have the C4 owners here managed to snap up the first batch? They don't seem to be in stock anywhere online.
  6. Great wee amps these, ideal for folks running with amp modelling and needing an amp with a decent EQ. Good luck!
  7. Great cabs; I only moved mine on as a 1x12 is sufficient for me for live purposes. Not too heavy either.
  8. Just received a bass from Mike: great instrument, exactly as described, well packed and he communicated at every stage to ensure it arrived safely. Another smooth BC sale, thanks Mike, Al
  9. Resistance is sometimes higher in the bridge pup to account for lower string vibration being closer to a fixed point (the bridge).
  10. Got these for 21 quid a while back - the big one can fit in the HX Stomp plus cabling etc. I use the small one for guitar tools, really useful. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Accessories-Electronics-Organiser-Chargers-Powerbank-Black/dp/B014QV4POK/ref=pd_sbs_421_1/259-6684782-8513845?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B014QV4POK&pd_rd_r=d0dff9ab-a21f-4db8-ac4e-82938b29dce3&pd_rd_w=MWb9e&pd_rd_wg=pymRq&pf_rd_p=7f9048ad-9bda-4493-8578-13e4eff8da65&pf_rd_r=4K7AK14JGY9ZG13VH2HH&psc=1&refRID=4K7AK14JGY9ZG13VH2HH
  11. I'm talking about the Straight Ahead amp, not the GSS. Makes sense to look at US power amps if the OP lives there.
  12. Straight Ahead power amp. The guy who makes them is based in New York. Small, powerful and transparent, plus very reasonably priced if you're in the US.
  13. following with interest. after seeing this I'm keen to get a custom build done with the Degenerates
  14. That Ashdown looks pretty neat I must say. I'd consider the new EBS Valvedrive also - I think someone on BC has one actually. Ref the Shift Line: I had one briefly and sent it back. Really wasn't impressed with it. Everyone has their own needs, of course, but I didn't find it versatile at all.
  15. There are a few mentions of the older version online it seems, but this is the newer model. Very happy!
  16. Greetings all! In quest to find a lightweight, public transport-friendly amp for rehearsals and small gigs, I took a chance on sourcing one of these from the US. Spec as below (with measurements obviously put into metric): 12.7 x 17.8cm 0.7kg 500 watts @ 4 ohms, 300 watts @ 8 ohms. THD less than .1%. Full array of protections built in against shorted output, over temperature, DC fault (for speaker protection), over/under supply voltage etc. Tonally transparent with no unwanted coloration. Not sure how much depth one can go into for such things, not being a power amp aficionado, but this really does do what you need it do. Very quiet (aside from some fan noise discernible up close) and bloody loud. The fact that it's tiny and light is a big bonus too. Photos above my amp give an idea of scale; If my hefty valve amp had feelings, it'd be a wee bit anxious about its place in the pecking order right now.... I bought this after enquiring on Jay's Facebook page; even after postage and customs this came in at around £265. There may be other similar products for less money but lower power (TC Electronics) or bigger, more powerful items (GSS Baby Sumo) but this really does do the job for something you can have in a studio or slipped into your gig bag. Please do send a message if you'd like to know more. https://www.facebook.com/straightaheadamp/
  17. Bought a cab from this fine gentleman; good comms and helpful throughout. Now reunited with the same model of kit I foolishly let go of last year. Thank you!
  18. Now £130 Hello all! I bought as a spare to leave with a friend in France, but I really only use P Basses now, so this is up for grabs. It includes a basic gig bag. I would consider trades plus cash for higher valued P Basses. Vintage are a British brand (manufactured in the Far East) who have a good rep in the press and on BC for instruments that punch way above their price point. Specs: Body: Alder (although some reselling sites state it is Poplar) Scratchplate: 3-ply Tortoise Shell Neck Hard Maple – Bolt On Frets 20 Top Nut: White graphite Nut Width: 42.5mm Machine Heads: Wilkinson® WJBL200 Pickups 1 Wilkinson® PB (M) WJB00 (B) WJB800 Weight: 4.3kg There are a few nicks and dinks which I have tried to capture as best as possible in the photographs. It plays very well, setup to 2mm action and is strung with some used D'Addario NYXL roundwounds; I can swap for some lightly used Rotosound Flats if preferred. No-commitment trials and a brew in Bristol are most welcome. I can post at buyer's expense and risk (£10-15 estimated).
  19. It's not the most well-laid out site.... Best to email him and can then let you know the price inc postage. It'll have to be paid in Polish zloty so I'd suggest using Transferwise if you went ahead with it.
  20. From seeing them in a Birmingham pub venue back in 2013, they've come a long way! Their performance at Brixton academy in 2015 (I think) was one of the most stunning shows I've ever seen; it still makes my hair stand on end when I hear the second album. There's a DVD of the performance - worth a watch if you're into that sort of thing.
