  1. Hi guys, Recently I sold an electric upright (SLB100) and the fella who bought it played it through a little mark bass combo that he decided to bring with him. I was astounded by how good the sound was and ended up spending about 25 minutes fiddling with his amp! I use a Phil Jones rig and love it but the VLE and VPF controls on the markbass were something special. I saw that they used to do a pedal version with these controls but they seem rarer than hen's teeth. I struggle with volume for my rig. I use a realist and a bassbone to boost the sound but just wondered if there's any alternative to the markbass you might recommend? Cheers for reading! Andy

  3. Bloody hell! 600 quid! I've already got one but I'll have this is nobody else does!
  4. Hope this is ok to post here as well. Awesome fretless 4 string bass. With fret markings. This is the model before the TB10 that retails on the net just over 2000. Fantastic bass in fantastic condition. Only selling to fund a custom build so I'm trying not be open to trades (you might change my mind with a top end 5 string but I'm trying to stay strong). (Or a Warwick Star Bass 2 ). This bass can be played as an upright with an included tail pin. Neck is arc shaped to allow for bowing. I also have a solid flight case and a soft case. Based in Macclesfield.

  6. Hi everyone. This was bought for a project and then never used in anger. It sat on my pedalboard unused and lonely. If you are a source audio pedal user, it allows you to control 2 parameters at once. Price includes delivery. This is from an advert.

The Pedal’s axis is designed to have a gradual increase that doesn’t slip or lose its even motion over time. The dual TRS expression outputs allow you to connect and control two effects at the simultaneously. The adjustable range knob lets you adjust the base point of the pedal to your personal preference. The Dual Expression Pedal is ideal for guitarists looking to add classic modulation effects to their guitar tone. Andy

  10. Ah guys, I'm going to have to bail out as well. Gutted. Never been to one of these before. How often do you hold them?
  11. Thanks Pete. Appreciate the help.
  12. Hey guys, can I come to this? Just saw the sticky note! I'm in Macclesfield. I've got a 5 string Shuker, a Paul Everson 4 string, some Phil Jones bass stuff and a yammy SLB100 I can bring to the party?
  13. Hi guys, Was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on this bass? Im thinking of moving it on and I've got no idea what it's currently worth. I bought it about 10 years ago from Colin Cross in Buxton. I think I paid about 1800 quid for it at the time. It has had a fairly huge repair in the front. I bought a new expensive bag with wheels and it fell over :S. I probably wouldn't have paid for the repair as it was a big one. My uncle builds violins and did it for me. It split from the f hole upwards, horrible. You can see the pics here of the repair. Any advice would be gratefully received! Andy
  14. Hi everyone, I'm posting this story because it reinforces what a close-nit community that we musicians, and in particular, bass players are. Some of you might have noticed recently I advertised on basschat a lovely Paul Everson Caiman bass for sale. I acquired the bass through a trade about a year ago with a guy who advertised it on Facebook. We met in a service station. I swapped a very nice 4 string Shuker bass for the Everson, had a nice chat with the fella who bought it and returned home. Whilst we were talking the lad confessed to me that he had found the Everson Bass in one of those second hand chain stores that have 'cash' in the title. He knew next to nothing about basses but had liked the look of it and bought it. He then tracked down Paul Everson on Facebook to get some info about the bass. I loved the bass. It appeared to have been treated quite badly. The electrics were shot and it was covered in a weird thick dust. I had it cleaned, sorted and set up and quickly picked up another Everson that appeared on Facebook. That was around a year ago. I recently decided to sell the caiman. Id always had a little niggle in the back of my head about 'Cash _________' and wondered if I'd been a little naieve in my trust. So to put my mind at ease I contacted Paul (Everson) who told me he had sold the bass through the great British bass lounge. I then contacted Drew who was running the lounge and asked them both if any Everson basses had been reported stolen. They both did some digging and came back with a resounding no. Drew had a record of a sale to a lad called 'Justin' who lived near Bradford (I'm in Macclesfield). So back to present day. After advertising said bass on Facebook and BC I received a message from a lad called Justin who explained to me that this was his bass and that he'd had it stolen in early 2016. I immediately phoned him and we discussed at length what to do. Now the dilemma. Justin hadn't been insured and had lost the bass along with a whole heap of equipment. He had been scouring the Facebook sites to try and recover the bass for the last 2 years. I had essentially swapped a 900 quid Shuker with it. The lad who had bought the bass oringally had moved the Shuker on. We were all victims of crime and it was a difficult puzzle to unravel. Justin had contacted Yorkshire police for advice and they had said it was a civil matter. Anyway the final result is that we met the following week and Justin got his bass back. It was a great end to a saga and needless to say Justin was chuffed! Just a big shout out to Paul Everson and Drew for caring enough about this story to help me with my clumsy detective work and a big shout out to Matthew who contacted me on behalf of (current) BBL. The photo below is of Justin (on the left) recieving his beloved bass back! Moral of the story. Cash ___________ are a store I like even less now and Bass players are awesome folk. Andy
