  1. Hi Darryl, I was just wondering what strings you were using on the Yamaha during that great gig in the video.
  2. I've had this Amp now for just over a year,and it has started to make a vibrating kind of buzzing noise but only on the A string around the 2nd and 3rd frets .I will stress that it is not my set up or strings buzzing its coming from the AMP it's self,?Anyone got any ideas.
  3. ?Did you get this sorted,as i might be going down the same road as you regarding the Nordstrand pups.
  4. From my Wigan Casino days from the mid 70s,absoluteLly nothing could ever compare to those early Northern Soul Stompers,The best of which has to be this classic,never ever tire of listening to this,but i could no longer do it justice on the dance floor.age stiffness sees to that.😂.
  5. Your answer to your problem is this..https://www.travisperkins.co.uk/thermal-insulated-plasterboard/british-gypsum-gyproc-thermaline-basic-insulated-wallboard-plasterboard-tapered-edge-2400mm-x-1200mm-x-30mm/p/752767. Simply line the party wall with this insulated plaster board. Dont know what you're like at DIY,but it is relatively an easy job. Use 20 mm batons and screw them to the wall,you dont even have to strip the wall paper just baton over existing,stick the plaster board onto the batons using this stuff..https://www.screwfix.com/p/soudal-fix-all-high-tack-adhesive-sealant-white-290ml/64585?tc=YA4&ds_kid=92700. Get hold of some ready mixed polyfiller and fill the joint lightly sand and then seal the joints. Paint with emulsion,then cross line .and then wallpaper . I did this with my party wall and believe me it works,i never hear a peep out of my neighbours now,apart from when he's peering over the garden fence ogling the wife
  6. Id never part with mine,sounds great played through my zoom B14,(Glam)setting,with Dadario chrome Flats.
  7. New Boots and Panties 1977, Ian Dury and the Blockheads. I had a love affair with Nina In the back of my Cortina A seasoned up hyena could not have been more obscener. To day it would be like , uhh whats a Cortina
  8. I need to make up some specific length guitar cables ,?anyone know any sites where i can purchase Jacks and cables separately.
  9. Vat cannot be charged twice ,take the example when buying a commercial vehicle,a lot of second hand vans have VAT payable at purchase,because it has a been a hire vehicle,but if VAT has been levied on the initial purchase from new,then that VAT is not payable again.
  10. Great news for British Retailers,and by god this country's small retailers deserve some good news,
  11. Thanks for the reply .Yes i suppose i could take the scratch plate off to get to the cavity when i get time.All would probably be revealed.
  12. Thanks for the post,i have just been digging a bit and it seems you are correct about the different Amps used.I ve only had the Bass a couple of weeks .The seller told me the Guitar was about 3 years old.The Guitar is in very condition almost like new so little use,it would have been nice to have the option to switch from active to passive though ,might just have to live with it although it's no biggie.
  13. Yes it's an active bass with the battery compartment on the back,but as said it doesn't have the passive option on the volume knob,maybe yours was done as a mod at some point.Be interesting if i could mod mine with passive /active switch.
  14. Nope don't have it ,strange,unless its seized or something ,the volume knob doesn't lift up
  15. i know this is an old thread,but i think it relates to my question about the Passive /active switch.I have the Sandberg Electra VS4. which doesn't appear to have this switch,?would anyone know why and if so which pot or switch operates the Passive mode.i have the maple fret board if that's relevant.
  16. No Al never played a Yammy before i bought this in early 2017 in Leeds {Dawsons},mine has Dadarrio chromes fitted.When i joined the Ska band i'm in or was in before the dreaded,the Yammy with these flats on took me to another level,ill never part with it unless someone offers me a grand then i might.
  17. Just recently acquired this a couple of weeks ago my one and only Guitar purchase this and it's a belter, I find myself picking this one up before my Yam bb424 which I haven't done with any other Bass.
  18. Ibanez SR500 Bought in in early 2018.Only played at home Neck type: SR4 5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck Body: Mahogany body Fretboard: Jatoba fretboard w/Abalone oval inlay Fret: Medium frets Bridge: Accu-cast B300 bridge (19mm string spacing) Neck pickup: Bartolini® MK-1 neck pickup (Passive) Bridge pickup: Bartolini® MK-1 bridge pickup (Passive) Equalizer: Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/Mid frequency switch Hardware colour: Cosmo black THE BASS IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND HAS ONLY BEEN PLAYED IN MY HOME.

  19. Hi need some help ,might be a silly question. Can i connect my wireless system and still use zoom b14. Thanks in advance for any reply.
  20. I have one identical to that with D'addario Flatwound Chromes 45 to105 on it,knock spots off my Mex P no exaggeration.
  21. This never failed to get the punters up ,known to us band members ,the half eleven jiggy .
  22. The Yam BB necks are something in between a Jazz which is 38 mm at the nut to a P which is around 43mm at the nut,My BB424 is 40 mm at the nut HTH.
