  1. I used to avoid small body basses just because I'm a big boy and always felt a bit daft holding them. I now don't care therefore my favourite bass now is a nanyo bass collection which is wee!
  2. Few questions. How does it play? Frets 8n good condition? Any pics of what's underneath the tape?
  3. I used to like this programme when it was more about the repair rather than the emotions surrounding the piece! Always feels contrived to me! This bass one dies sound interesting though!
  4. I've asked about a different tokai and the answer was no, but are you able to narrow down the year at all? My next purchase I want a YOB bass an I love the Tokai stuff from this vintage.
  5. Yep, very similiar to that. similiar level of support but mines would be a lot more flush to the connecting surface, so that when it isn't needed it can be twisted inwards to be unobtrusive. It would need to be retro fitted and i would imagine a very thin metal base plate would need to be attached to the cab, so not sure how many id sell... and to be honest, it would probably give little support. Not sure Id even buy one.
  6. Yep.. For someone who's able to transport a 6x10 or 8x10 to gigs probably is able to also transport a stand without a problem! Although, I've always had the idea of having a rotatable bit added to small combos or cabs which would allow the neck to be rested up against it without risk of it sliding away. As in, the bass sits on the floor leaning against the amp, but this just provides a groove for the neck to sit in. When not in use it can be spun round so it sits flush against the top of the cab or bass. I'm sure that's a real thing, but if not, someone should make it!
  7. This isn't bass related but wanted to share anyway. I was looking for a nice looking semi acoustic of some sort. One that can be left in the living room without being an eyesore. I took a punt on this deco item. Think I paid 70 quid for it - no idea what a normal one retails at- and for 70 quid I'm blown away! The only issue I see is that the white plastic bridge section was loose and pointing towards the neck meaning the action was extremely low and of course making it not work. However a bit of superglue and its working a treat all the electrics work fine and I can't see any other blemishes at all! Love it!
  8. Self indulgent is not a term I'd use for this. Not exactly sure why someone would. In my eyes, self indulgent is when someone says they're reviewing sonething like a pedal but really it's a video to show off their slap bass chops.
  9. Does this have a babicz bridge?
  10. Could an ms60b not do this with the splitter effect? Can also double up as your tuner and compressor!
  11. I have a yamaha bb1000 which is an old p bass type thing. Can't say I've noticed this up until the past few weeks, and I can't remember ever experiencing it on any other basses I've ever owned so I thought I'd put it out there to see if this is just how p basses are, or if theres something up with my bass. As the title suggest, when i bend the strings, or even a slight vibrato, I notice the signal seems to be louder. Acoustically there seems to be no difference so i can only suspect its the pickups adding this. Now, with the string being in between two poles, and the bending motion bringing it closer to a pole, I would suppose it's pretty normal. But, this is noticeable so much so I'm avoiding bending strings... which is not ideal. It's been passable live but I've got a session tomorrow and I really fancied using this bass! Question is... is this a symptom of an electrical issue or is it something else than I'm over looking? definitely feeling like a 'noob' right now cos I'm stuck!
  12. I've no plans to purchase it, but I fully understand the value it would have to alot of players out there. It will be of extremely high quality, based on Scott's other stuff and I've watched the clip of Gary and drummer playing to some laptop synthy stuff. Worth it for the drummer alone!
  13. If I can add my tuppence worth, then I might do! Personally, and this just be wrong, I like to read other people's thoughts on something I'm purchasing!
  14. Are you ever north of the border? Or ever close-ish to the border? I love the look of this.
