  1. Vigier Passion 1984 Rom 1000€

    I do like this, whats this present business all about, does that bit on the back need to be connected to something??
  2. Are Flatwounds Addictive

    I think the sound has mellowed a touch, there are quite a lot of mids to start off with, but rather quickly develop that lovely mellow flat sound we all love so much.

    🥖 🍞 I stand corrected Mr Breadbin 🥖 🍞 and you are correct, they are great 😁
  4. Are Flatwounds Addictive

    One of the reasons I like the rotosound Jazz 77 flats so much is that you don’t get this friction, they are ever so slightly textured, even less than compression wound strings, but just enough to prevent that annoying friction stickiness...
  5. Are Flatwounds Addictive

    Surprised that no one has mentioned rotosound Jazz 77 flats......awesome strings, and having spent a small fortune on flats over the last 18 months, I’ve tried them all......
  6. Here is the answer to my enquiry Hi, Thanks for your interest in this item. As you saw, I am looking for a fast deal only and not a bidding auction, so the BUY IT NOW price that I am asking for this item is US $1500 including shipping charges. This item will come with a 30 Days Return Policy (if you are not satisfied %100 with the purchased item, you will be able to return it back on my cost and get a full refund). For a fair deal I want this transaction to be handled by eBay because they will offer protection to both of us and at the end of this transaction we will be able to exchange feedback. If you want to move forward in purchasing this item, please provide me with your FULL Name and FULL Shipping Address so I can submit our Transaction through eBay and request them to register our deal through eBay Buyer Protection Program. For more information don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you
  7. Here’s a link, looking dodgy to me.... if not someone’s in for a bargain!!!! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132509475581
  8. There are a few “bargains” on eBay at the moment which appear to be rather dodgy, a 59 Precision for just over 1k, I emailed and they said that they wanted my details so they can register the deal under the eBay buyer transaction scheme (for my piece of mind!!!!), sounds like a load of nonsense to me as the eBay buyer protection scheme would be a normal purchase through eBay! im tempted to string him along for a while to see what happens next. he also has a number of other vintage jazz and Precisions at rediculus prices so watch out!
  9. Awesome power to size, mass, ratio with these beauties....
  10. Tapes on a Jazz?

    If I can bring myself to take a set of roto 77 Jazz’s off one of my basses I may give these a go. or I could just buy another bass and fit a set 🤔
  11. Compressors - Do I need One?

    I have played with a compressor for years and tried a couple of practises and a gig without. i then went straight back to using it!
  12. Tapes on a Jazz?

    I’ve often thought about giving tapes a go but think they may just be a little too floppy for me, I must admit to liking a bit of tension.
  13. Rotosound Jazz 77 Flats?

    I have these on all my basses having been through TI flats, chromes, fender flats, pyramid flats, Labella FS and FL, GHS compression wounds.... and then back through them all again before I finally tried these. lower tension than chromes but no where near as low as TI flats, they are ever so slightly textured so not glassy smooth like some flats but this is not a bad thing as they don’t get sticky like most flats can as the slight texture reduces the friction. they start off with a strong mid similar to TI flats but quickly mellow out to a more usual flatwound powerful thump sound. I love these strings
  14. Are Markbass cabs now considered a bit rubbish?

    Nothing wrong with Mark Bass stuff, light and loud, tone wise they are transparent and you change tone with your preamp. Good stuff in my opinion.
  15. Precisions

    Chuck some flats on it, strings make a huge difference, a set of rotosound Jazz 77s will be awesome ...
