  1. i wish I was in charge of the mix 😁....thanks!
  2. My first post in a very looong time! I just wanted to share with you this project I'm involved with....after a long break from playing bass. As a consequence of the Covid-19 situation, this project has been born and we have called it " Confinement Jam Experience". We are all in different cities, and some in different countries, but we came together online and decided to record a cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "By The Way". It has been a great experience and it has helped making our time indoors more enjoyable. By the way, I'm on bass 😁 Give it a watch and....I hope you like it!

Sorry, not interested on any trades this time. ...and now the photos:

  9. I'm selling my Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, aka "black beauty" It's one of the earlier Made in Japan models. Serial Number T057*** The pickups have been upgraded to the beefy Dimarzio Model J and the tunning machines swapped for Hipshot Ultralites. As you'll see on the photos all the hardware has been swapped to black as well as a black pickguard...It really is a stunning bass! The bass plays beautifully and the neck is superb! A few marks here and there but nothing really that noticeable. Comes on a Fender Urban Bass gig bag and also has the, never used, original white pickguard. Collection from Peacehaven or can deliver within the area. Happy to post at buyers expense too.

  11. [quote name='Abjatar' timestamp='1498743532' post='3326764'] have a bump for a great bass any trades? [/quote] Thanks...no trades as only selling to raise funds. [quote name='petergales' timestamp='1498745231' post='3326784'] I have a Mike Lull V4 and it is a superb instrument. The craftsmanship that goes into his basses is top drawer and it's a real joy to play. Good luck with the sale! [/quote] Thanks! They are superb instruments.
  12. Thanks guys...it really is a stunning bass, very sad to let it go 😢
  13. [quote name='molan' timestamp='1494406785' post='3295632'] Having unpacked quite a few cabs in my time I've been able to see how lots of different manufacturers ship things. The better ones tend to use some sort of synthetic (polystyrene type material) inner 'frame' which sits on the bottom and top of the cardboard box. This holds the cab securely in place and provides a lot more protection than something like bubble wrap to the more vulnerable areas like corners. It also holds the cab a few centimetres away from the outside of the box. This can mean that if a forklift pierces the cardboard it sometimes doesn't get as far as the cab. Might sound like this is an exaggeration but I've seen a lot of boxes arrive with a pierced side but the cab hasn't been touched. Porting is another area of weakness on some cabs and there are a few builders who insert foam pads in this area for extra protection. The depth of the ply in the picture doesn't look very thick so, as mentioned by someone else, this might be a weak spot with this cab. The other thing that does appear to help is to get that white tape with red 'fragile' all over it. Won't stop a really heavy handed courier but does provide some warning and the courier company have less of a chance to dispute that a decent warning wasn't clearly shown in the box hat the contents could be easily damaged. Making sure there are clear directions in which way to stack the box can help too. I sometimes just draw big arrows on the side My guess is that the courier may say the bubble wrap wasn't of sufficient strength to protect a 'heavy' object and that the box needed to be stronger. I'm not saying they are correct, just that it's the kind of thing I've heard before. To be fair I've not had problems with UPS before, they are usually one of the better couriers and the one we'd use to ship expensive stuff overseas. [/quote] In my case the packaging held it together well, whatever hit the box did not pierce the cardboard and it did it not get as far as the cab. The amount of packaging used, tons of bubble wrap, over 13 layers, even more on the corners, thick padded cover and the strong double-lined corrugated box did their job...well, up to a point. The parcel also had big stickers stating "Fragile". ParclHero are being a right pain, with stupid email replies, pretty much repeating the same over and over again. So far, they have failed to prove how my cab was packed and what aspect of the packaging was insufficient. I have so far receive a so called "report", just a few lines long, provided to them by UPS, in which they merely state my claim is rejected due to insufficient packaging, in there they quote a UPS policy and the International Safe Transit association test procedure for small parcel shipments. They do not provide any facts and information on how the parcel was packed. Just today I received a set of images, on which they are basing their claim rejection on, and there's not even a photograph of the bubble wrap, according to their images my cab was only packed with the padded cover and then the cardboard box! My contract is with ParcelHero and I did pack the item according to their criteria, at no point I was provided with any other packaging policy or packaging standards.There seem to be discrepancies between ParcelHero's packaging criteria and that of UPS. This was not for me to know as I wasn't informed of their existence. Yesterday I had a very productive meeting with an advisor from the Citizens Advice Bureau and the wheels are in motion, I will be following all the recommended steps they advice and go all the way to court if we need to.
  14. [quote name='moooper' timestamp='1494331552' post='3295009'] Following on from my court date they didn't turn up so the Judge awarded me everything. [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/282557-broken-cab-just-arrived/page__fromsearch__1"]http://basschat.co.u...__fromsearch__1[/url] Stick with it its taken me a year so far. [/quote] Excellent news, well done! It's taken quite a while, I think that's their game, hoping people will give up before getting to this point. At least that is my experience so far: slow communication, ignoring questions and points raised on emails, standard copy and paste replies...very frustrating, all I think, in the hope to make you give up your case and move on.
  15. [quote name='moooper' timestamp='1494331454' post='3295008'] Right today was the preliminary court date for my claim. The courier company Parcel Monkey didn't turn up so the Judge awarded me everything. The company did contact me on Friday just gone and said the wanted to offer me a settlement, which seemed a bit late in the day. The offer was pretty poor and not close to what I lost so I refused it. Its taken me a over a year so far but maybe its nearly done depends if they pay I suppose. Ill keep you posted on what happens next. [/quote] Great news, really happy for you!. Hope you get your money back soon.
  16. [quote name='ProfJames' timestamp='1494054570' post='3292843'] I have issued an online CCJ on three occasions and won each time, This is an online action via a government website and costs around £30. It issues a summons and places a CCJ on both the company address and the name of the person. They get a month to respond and then have to attend court. Frightens the sh*t out of the accused and CCJ actions bugger up their credit ratings.........................

  17. [quote name='timmo' timestamp='1493360923' post='3287685'] [attachment=244221:20170428_023125.jpg] I found a box to put the fork into. Obviously I can`t recreate it properly, as the box is just rolls of shrinkwrap with nothing in the corner. It wasn`t heavy either, so not lot of resistance that the speaker would have had. I think the damage looks similar [/quote] Sorry about the late reply, been away for a few days. This is really helpful! I think it is quite clear what happened to mine after seeing those photos. Is there any chance you can email me these photos, please? Update: - Courier company is ignoring many of my emails and fail to provide advice or clear instructions on what to do next to dispute the claim resolution. - UPS won't deal with me directly as the shipper is ParcelHero but they were quick to contact me when I posted on their Facebook page. On the other hand ParcelHero accept no visitors posts on their Facebook but I did post a comment on one of their posts and they haven even bother deleting it or acknowledging. - The cab maker has not replied to my email with advice on force needed or a few other questions. - Visit to Citizens Advice Bureau was useless as I got seen by an old lady that did not have much idea and failed to give any advice, other that ask me to look at their website. I'm going back tomorrow, to a different town, with the hope to find someone a bit more helpful. This is it for now....Thanks everyone for your help!
