  1. Hey guys.

    I've had my QC for about 2 months now. Upgraded from a helix LT. It's an incredible piece of kit but I haven't really even scratched the surface of it's capabilities. I've been going straight from this unit to FOH and it sounds incredible. For the first time I'm getting strangers at gigs complementing me on my sound. The only slight niggle I've got is powering up the sound to live volumes. Through a pair of studio monitors or headphones it's incredible. Pumping up the sound on stage I've found the sound gets a little flat, like it needs a valve warmth or something (this is me being RIDICULOUSLY picky!)


    On some of the guitar forums our six string brothers have been running the QC through a stage power amp pedal (Seymour Duncan Powerstage seems to be the unit of choice) and then using a 'normal' guitar cab, rather than a powered speaker. Just wondered if anyone had tried this.


    I've asked this question on a few sites now and no one seems to have tried this on bass. I've just bought an acoustic image double shot from a fellow bass-chatter and I've got a Phil Jones cab so I'm going to experiment. If I reach any eureka moments, I'll come back and share!

  2. Hi everyone. Just wondered if anyone is using one of these incredible things? I'm currently running this through a QSC k10.2. just wondered if anyone had used a Seymour Duncan Powerstage to power a 'normal' unpowered PA speaker or bass cab? 

  3. Hi folks, 


    Whole heap of pre-amp pedals here. I've just bought a Helix and these are now all surplus to requirements. I've priced them individually and am open to offers. No trades though please.


    Also if someone wants them all, I can do a deal on the lot!


    £120  £150 - Radial Tone Bone V2 - Great preamp, dual channel, great condition, power supply is a bit damaged hence the low price

    SOLD  £90 - Tech 21 VT bass - Great condition, no velcro, get that motown sound. Lovely little preamp, argued with myself about keeping this one for days. Comes in the original tin.

    SOLD £100 £150 - Mark Bass Super Synth - Lovely synth pedal with presets, edit using usb and software. little scratched cosmetically, velcro on the bottom, works perfectly - Power supply included

    £80  £100 £130 - Mark Bass Super Booster - took me ages to find one of these, get that mark bass sound without an amp, sounds AMAZING with a EUB. Great condition - NO OFFICIAL POWER SUPPLY

    SOLD  £50 £30 Sonuus BSM - Bass to midi convertor, Bought on a whim, never used in anger, no need for midi pickups etc. No idea of it's capabilities

    WITHDRAWN!  £70 - Source Audio Dual Expression pedal - works as a 'normal' expression pedal but if you have source audio pedals i believe you can control 2 of them? Again, never used to the best of it's abilities, velcro on bottom.


    Prices are for pick up only, I can price up postage as and when needed, Thanks for reading!

  4. Bought a fantastic Mayones 5 string bass from Simon. Great seller. Was very accommodating as I was on holiday. Bass was exactly as described, great bass, great price, very happy.


    Buy with confidence


  5. Beautiful Everson bass for sell. Very light and lovely to play. I generally just play 5's these days so it's just sitting and not being played, which is criminal.

    Just checked these details with Mr Everson. He seems to think the fretboard was some sort of fancy rosewood but he couldn't remember the specifics. 

    Walnut top on swamp ash body
    Natural, oil finish
    3 piece walnut & maple, oil finish, bolt-on/34″ scale
    24 medium frets, ebony /maple binding, aluminum edge dots
    40mm Top Nut
    1x EMG Humbucker. EMG 2 band eq. Controls for Volume, bass, and treble. Mode switch (humbucker/single coil)
    Hipshot Type A bridge, Hipshot lightweight tuners, and strap buttons

    Based in Macclesfield if you fancy a play (socially distanced of course!)

    24 frets

  7. Price drop - £800

    Also now open to trades. Any exotic 5'er with cash your way.


    With heavy heart I offer up my beloved Phil Jones Compact suitcase Amp for sale with C4 extension cab. I have tried and tried to justify keeping this amp but I've run out of excuses. Classic Phil Jones Clean Tone (no hiding!), perfect for both guitar and upright. 

    Some small rips/dings to the red finish (tolex?) I've tried to include them in the pictures. 

    The link to the Bass Direct site is here:


    Based in Macclesfield. Prefer not to ship but can meet halfway somewhere?
