    Dave bought a bass off me. A true gent. Impeccable transaction just like you always wish for. A genuine asset to the BC community. Thanks Dave and hope you enjoy playing the bass.
  3. Full flightcase for keyboards Currently foamed for Hammond XK-1 but can easily be modified. External dimensions - 122 x 37 x 16.5 cm Internal dimensions- 116 x 33.5 x 10cm All catches and handles working. Located south Warwickshire. Reduced to £50.
  4. It is just the gig bag which is Chauvet, the lights are of a generic make. Yes, there is a sound activation mode on them, it works but it is something I would never use!
  5. Generic LED Battens x 2 with Gig Bag - Sold A pair of generic LED battens for sale. In good condition. They are 1m in length. These can be used as stand alone or controlled via a DMX controller however there is peculiarity with the DMX addressing on these which doesn’t follow convention. For example if you select address 003 on the battens then the controller needs to be set at 009! This gives us quite a headache for our rig as most of the 512 channels are assigned and it’s not so easy to swap things around. Stand alone they are fine and there are absolutely no issues. No manual I’m afraid but working around the menu on the unit is fairly straight forward. Can post within the UK at cost.
  6. Squier Precision 5 string VM - Sold Time to thin the collection and a few basses have to go. Squier Precision 5 string VM in a stunning candy apple red finish. Presently strung with Chromes. Comes with a basic gig bag. Made in 2014, weighs in at 8lb 8oz on the bathroom scales. These basses need no introduction as a lot has been said as to how good they are in terms of value for money. Neck is in perfect condition and there are just a couple of minor blemishes on the body which I have attempted to photograph. There are two very insignificant fill holes on the headstock where someone previously fitted a different string retainer. Sorry but no trades. Located in south Warwickshire where you are welcome to come and try the bass out for yourself. Alternatively I’m prepared to drive up to 40 miles for a meet-up somewhere.
  7. Fender Coronado II – CAR – With hard case - Sold Time to thin the collection and a few basses have to go. Fender Coronado II in a stunning candy apple red finish. Presently strung with Tomastic jazz flats so has quite a thumpy sound. Comes with an Epiphone shaped case which fits it perfectly. Made in 2013, weighs in at 9lb 9oz on the bathroom scales. 30” scale so very comfortable to play. Photos show the bass without the pick-guard as I feel it is much better looking like this but can be easily re-fitted as all the screws and bracket are present. The small holes in the body are for the pick-guard so will be covered if re-fitted. Neck is in perfect condition though there are a couple of minor chips on the very top of the headstock which I have attempted to photograph. The mod to the selector switch wiring has also been carried out which gives much better tonal control over the two Fidelitron pick-ups. The photos don’t really convey it but the CAR finish on the bass is truly stunning which is what sold it to me in the first place. Sorry but no trades. Located in south Warwickshire where you are more than welcome to come and try the bass out for yourself. Alternatively I’m prepared to drive up to 40 miles for a meet-up somewhere.
  8. A new set of GHS double ball end strings, roundwound, extra light gauge - 30 / 50 / 70 / 90. Can post within UK at cost.
  9. I have just sold some strings to Brian and could not have wished for an easier transaction. Great communication and a pleasure to deal with. A friendly and trustworthy BassChatter. 👍🙂
  10. Five string set of used D'addario Chromes XL. These have been fitted on my Ales Vychodil AVP5 P bass which is 35" scale and 5 in line tuners. They have been on the bass a couple of years but if they've been played for more that 5 - 6 hours then that's being very optimistic. I felt that they never really suited the bass and that's why I would always gravitate towards playing my Stingray or Lakland. £25 posted within UK.
  11. Good advice in earlier posts. Mic it through the PA every time. It will save you having to lug around another amp as well. I use the Sennheiser e608 for the soul band and have several of them. They are know to fail, the wiring tends to fracture just where it enters the strain relief bush as the bush doesn't flex enough and puts the strain on the cable. It is generally repairable but a real PITA to do. (I've had to do this on a couple of mine). An SM57/58 also works well but on stage it constrains you to a fixed position which some sax players don't like. A fixed mic on a stand is always best for recording though. Clip on mics will pick up the movement of the valves opening and closing on the sax. This is rarely a problem in a live environment though with everything else that is going on. Thomman sell a budget clip on if you just want to experiment with the principle but as with most things you get what you pay for and the feedback rejection on these will probably not be as good as the Sennheiser.
  12. I travel to Tamworth regularly on Fridays and Sundays. I could bring it back to Alcester and even deliver it to Evesham if that helps. That will get you 35- 40 miles closer to home.
  13. Another faultless transaction from Lee. The pedal is just what I was after. Sent well packaged and arrived on schedule. Thanks again Lee. A real asset to the BC community.
