    Acoustic basses

    [quote name='bassjamm' post='48920' date='Aug 22 2007, 01:09 PM']Just what i was thinking of getting...any more thoughts on the Vic Bailey Lee? I was thinking of getting a 5 string and stringing it E - C. Can acoustics have a reasonably low action?[/quote] It's great, good funk sound. Pop over one day to try it mate.

    Acoustic basses

    I have a Fender Vic Bailey and it's excellent. The Sei acoustics were lovelly, but at £2500 6 years ago far too expensive
  5. [quote name='lukeward2004' post='48466' date='Aug 21 2007, 06:39 PM']Hi All, I have a Boss DR 550 Dr Rhythm Drum machine that I no longer use due to programming drums into Cubase and not using it, so ive decided to sell it. I have all original manuals and box, looking for £20 delivered. I will get some pics arranged and uploaded just as soon as I can find some batteries for my camera! Cheers Luke[/quote] I'll have it pm on it's way
  6. I have done a fair bit of business with both Gard and Grasshopper atr Bass central, they are both top blokes and always keen to talk bass.
  7. [quote name='simon1964' post='35363' date='Jul 21 2007, 07:51 PM']I think I've seen these at Music Inn in Nottingham in the past. The bassist in one of the local blues bands in Nottingham plays a five string. I've not played one myself, but he raves about them.[/quote] Your right mate, I think they are the distributor, they have a 5er and two guitars in at the moment. Typical Musicinn test drive, £2k bass and £300 bass amp to try it through. Nice people though/.
  8. Dave at Electro music has one in for £300 I belive, bargin if it's what you want
  9. Mad Mad MAD! Made me smile. Slap bass moster from the deep (end).
  10. I bought a Tascam bass trainer about 3 or 4 years ago, it's been great and has regularly come on tour with me.
  11. I had an incase, unfortunatly it was stolen along with my 'ray in November. I can't rate them highly enough, the only down side is the weight (especially once you fill the back pack bit with gig stuff). I'd love another one, but they won't shp outside the US + shipping was about $200 last time!
  12. [quote name='obbm' post='21037' date='Jun 20 2007, 09:10 PM']I had one and it was great but my back didn't like it. Very loud, very punchy.[/quote] I had one, it was ace, but as you say you really need two to move it easily. I ran an Ampeg SVT Cassic into mine. The guy from pearl jam uses the same set up as his bassic rig.
  13. [quote name='Higgie' post='19023' date='Jun 17 2007, 02:20 AM']If I don't get a Sadowsky soon I will ACTUALLY tear all my hair out and prance around the room like a bald fairy.[/quote] I know the feeling, I have an NYC 4 at the moment, I'm really GASin for a Sadowsky Fretless 4 to go with it. I would also like a Sadowsky with MM pick up, I emailed them as I have seen some prototype ones in the past but they won't make em any more
  14. Doesnt Lee Sklars bass have this set up? Doesnt seem to have done him any harm.
  15. Horace (and the specials) is a big influance of mine. If fact one of my mates has just landed the gig playing with Roddy Radiation.
  16. [quote name='TGEvans' post='20292' date='Jun 19 2007, 05:08 PM']It aint on their web site yet. Not being released until september/october. So if it is just essentially the second channel of the 500 wat head I could use it in conjunction with my db680?[/quote] Yep, thats the idea. I have a DB680 + DB728, I bought an Ag500 a few months ago and the dity channel is excellent. I think there is a video on youtube with Dave B. at NAMM showing it off. Lee
  17. [quote name='blamelouis' post='17255' date='Jun 13 2007, 10:40 PM']I seen that before and if i had the money id take it of your hands.[/quote] It's a wickid bass, almost as good as my Sadowsky NYC + it was actually played by DJ in the USA. In fact it was in a magazine (bassist) 10 years ago and I wanted it then so when it came up for sale I jumped at the chance of owning it. BUT and it's a big but, I want a Sadowsky Fretless and at this point have no spare money to buy one, so the A bass is up for sale.
  18. have you seen this [url="http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=1227&st=0&gopid=17244&#entry17244"]http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=...amp;#entry17244[/url] Shameless plug!
  19. I have a 8 unit rack that contains: Aguilar DB680 pre Aguilar DB728 power amp Korg tuner (no idea which one) Furman Power Conditioner This is feed in to 2 Aguilar GS410 cabs. I'm also using an Aguilar AG500 for quick load in's, it's very nice considering there are no valves in it.
  20. Just pointed out to the misses that my GAS could actually be worse!
  21. [quote name='Aussiephoenix' post='12961' date='Jun 6 2007, 12:12 PM']The Tokyos are active/passive as usual for Sadowskies right? I imagine the preamp and the pups themselves are the same build and the truer 70's jazz sound is mainly from the body diference and the pup placement...[/quote] I think the pick up placement has the most effect on the sound. I can't remember if they have the active/passive switch, but it's not a hard mod if they don't.
  22. My NYC seems to be abit lighter than the Metros I've played, theres not much in it though. I belive the now dufunct Tokyo series have a standard size jazz body (Sadowskys are normally slightly undersized) and the pickups are placed in the '70's Fender position. The tokyo's sound more like a '70's Jazz than the 'standard' Sadowskys. I'm a massive Sadowsky fan, in my eye's they are all fine basses at the top of their game.
  23. I some times wonder if any one actually falls for these scams?
