  1. For sale is my Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff pedal. Personally I think this works better on Guitar than Bass, and I don't have any real use for it anymore. Full working order, a few scuffs from live use. Heavy duty velcro on the back and the rubber feet have been removed (see photos). Looking for £40 plus postage within the UK.
  2. What Trolley do you use

    I got one of these for £20 from Bunnings Warehouse a few months ago. Could have probably made my own for cheaper, but can I be arsed? No. No I cannot. My cab sits on it in a cupboard and get's wheeled out when the family is out.
  3. Feedback for dmc79

    Bought a TC Mojomojo overdrive from Dave. Helpful and responsive to messages, very well packaged item. Top seller.

  5. NAD

    I have the MiniMax version, and at practice last night it sounded superb. Just the right amount of grind and didn't need to take the volume past 9 o'clock. Happy NAD.
  6. Do up current bass or buy a new one?

    Thanks all, appreciate the advice. Saving for a new bass it is.
  7. Do up current bass or buy a new one?

    I agree, I've had this since the world was new, seems like. Also tempted by the Sterling Music Man Sub Ray series. Or I could just get another Jazz... Other suggestions are welcome of course...
  8. Do up current bass or buy a new one?

    Should clarify, reason for GAS-ing over the Ibanez SR series is that my guitarist let me use one at a rehearsal and I was impressed by the weight and playability, but didn't have time to get to grips with the EQ.
  9. Hi all, Attached is a picture of my current bass; it's an Aria 'Legend' series jazz copy that I've had since school (so quite a while now... ) and it's OK. I upgraded the pickups to Seymour Duncans, and I'm quite happy with the amplified sound, but it's been dinged to hell (not visible, chunks taken out of the underside, my plan is to smooth them over with some black Sugru). I am in a band where I'm tuned CFA#D# using the bottom strings of a 5-string set, and I have widened the nut slots accordingly. I've made my best attempt at getting the intonation and action right but there's still some buzz around the higher frets and I'm sure the low string could be a bit snappier. So now I'm getting back into playing in a band after a long time away, and I'd like people's opinions on whether I should: A: Tart my current bass up a bit (thinking black scratchplate and new black bridge hardware) and get a professional set-up done on it... OR B: Get myself a new or second-hand Ibanez SR series 5-string (got some money coming in from selling a guitar, and have a valve guitar head to sell). Essentially, will I get better value for money from sticking with what I've got, or from buying a new (to me) bass? Thanks for your help.
  10. Advice appreciated - choosing an amp

    The mini max is a 500 watt head. https://www.andertons.co.uk/peavey-mini-max-500w-bass-head-pvmmax. Thanks for the feedback on the TC.
  11. I have the shell and speaker from an old Fender Deluxe 90 DSP combo that I used to run pedals through (no amp guts, just the cabinet with the speaker mounted). I connected a jack socket onto the speaker wire to use as a rough and ready open backed cab but it's just taking up space. Missing a screw from the top handle, which is attached (contrary to pictures). I'd rather it get used for someone's project or something rather than the tip, but it can't hang around for ever. Speaker was working last time I tried it.

    Yes, tried it out at the seller's place using an Orange OB-500. I don't tend to scoop my mids . Never have, when playing guitar or bass. Thanks for mentioning. Had a quick look at your for-sale post and I'm afraid it's a bit too rich for my blood. Since everyone keeps mentioning the HA 3500, I am definitely considering it. I'd certainly feel more comfortable running the cab within it's rated capacity (I know, I know, it won't hurt it if I don't crank it and I only spent £50 on the cab, but I'm just a big baby when it comes to risking gear), which puts me off the LH-500. I'm still determined to try the TC BG250-208 when it's back in stock at Andertons, and I'll probably compare it to a Peavey MiniMax, to see how much I feel the extra 200 watts (at trying-out-in-a-shop volume, possibly not). I just have a good feeling about having a small combo that I can poke into a cab and get decent low end out of, but isn't as much of a pain to cart as the old Ashdown combo I used to have. Budget at the moment is around £300. Really appreciate everyone's feedback.
