  2. Hi chaps never traded anything and am notionally thinking of putting the feelers out to trade a fretted bass and see if someone has the same bass but fretless they are looking to trade. I’m not remotely interested in selling. Do I put it i the bass for sale section? thanks in advance!
  3. Anyone know where to get battery plate screws for an old EB Stingray?

  5. I’m trying to get a more jazz type fretless sound, might be a hopeless task! I looked at the bart preamps the main thing is size really.
  6. Hi I have a passive fretless, it’s a copy of a well known bass! Plays really well but I just feel the tone is lacking. Currently has Bartolini 6R Pickups. It’s got a good thumpy old school tone but, for me, lacks a wee bit of zing. Any recommendations for a small preamp that might work? Each pickup has a volume and tone control but I’m not wedded to any configuration . A local luthier suggested an EMG VMC. Any suggestions? all the best S
  7. Chris Squire for me. Spent most of my bass life playing fingerstyle with the treble turned down! Listening to Chris Squire made me really appreciate the pick and the top end! Rotosound strings were integral to his sound!

  9. Cheers Dan that's very helpful. Are the j-Tones any good? They are very cheap and there is one that looks very like a bass max.
  10. Hi My trusty K&K Bassmax pick up has developed an annoying crackle. I've had it for years and it's on my backup bass. Wondering if anyone ever experienced a similar issue and any possible solutions or should I just bite the bullet and get a new one!
  11. That looks great! I was thinking of something similar but with thick wooden dowels.
  12. Has anyone had a go at making a double bass stand? I’m thinking of something similar to the Upton bass stand below, or the other attached. There is also one Concord Double bass stand here which looks like it would work http://www.kontrabass-atelier.de/zubehoer_e.html The problem being I am pretty hopeless at DIY but I do have access to a CNC Milling Machine at work and am about to book on to some training. I think you just create you designs in Illustrator or something and upload it via a web interface and it does all the work but I’ll find out. The Concord stand is CNC milled MDF. I think I would need to source the bars in the appropriate size and shape in wood or metal and then mill the sides which would create the shape and holes for the bars. The machine I have access to is not huge so potentially it might not be able to handle the size but people have made chopping boards etc and the bass is an odd size just bigger than 1/4 size, so I’ll see. Be great if anyone had plans so I didnt need to do any work tho!
  13. Traded a cab for Gerry’s Mustang. Absolute pleasure to deal with and made me appreciate how nice it is to meet other bass players and have a chat, great bloke.
