  1. It's a good price, I'm in the process of getting a quote for something very similar from the overwater guys, and the starting point before the twiddly bits is £2400...and when you add in the amp and strap it's even better value. Good luck with the sale.
  2. Is it too expensive, try hitting me with an offer (not to daft though).
  3. Hi All, I got this stool/chair about a year ago, and try as I might, its just not for me. These retail for around £130, so its a huge saving on a new one. Its in good condition, no tears to the material, and folds up when not in use. Its pretty heavy, but I guess I could post it, but collection would be preferred. Here is the link https://www.quiklok.it/en/quiklok/dx749 Happy to answer questions.
  4. Hi All, Up for sale is my Blackstar combo, its a great little combo, idea for practicing at home. I've just moved to separates so this little beauty has to go. Heres the spec 60 Watts Custom designed 10inch Speaker 3 Voices – Classic, Modern, Overdrive 3 band EQ with semi-parametric Mid Foot switchable Overdrive and Chorus Compressor Input Gain with clip indication Pad Switch for active / passive instruments Master Volume Link to Unity Bass Series Active Cabinet MP3 / Line in XLR + ¼inch Line Out / Headphones with independent level control Weight (kg): 12 Dimensions (mm): 410(W) x 465(H) x 295(D) Its in great condition, here's the spec from the blackstar site :- https://www.blackstaramps.com/uk/ranges/unity Its not super heavy so should be able to post if required. Happy to answer any questions. Cheers Neil.
  5. Hi All, I'm off to pmtonline this weekend to trade in this lovely 1987 BB100s (along with my BB614 which is also for sale on this very boutique). I bought this from Andy Travis last year to be used as a decoration rather than player, so its sat on the wall gathering dust. For a 30 year old bass its in good condition, it weighs just under 9lbs and has some oxidisation on the pole pieces. Given its been untouched for a year, it could probably do with a good setup. I dont have a bag for this, but if it sells and the BB614 doesn't you can have that case, as i dont think PMT will be overly fussed. Any questions, please shout. Cheers Neil.
  6. Hi, Everyone's a critic....so I got this to practice wherever I want to in the house, without annoying anyone or interrupting Emmerdale. Victor Wooten seems impressed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR2CN_LHrUo I recently upgraded to a PJB Bighead, so time to see if it would do anyone else a good turn. Its in good condition (see pics). Happy to answer any questions.
  7. Hi All, I've not been playing long, but I'm middle aged, male and always looking for the next shiny thing to play with........I think GAS is genetic. Anyway, after trying Fender Rumble Combo's, TC R450/750's and finally a Blackstar combo, I thought there must be a smart (and cheaper) way of doing this. So I bought this little gadget, in theory I can try out loads of different amps and cabinets to see which suited me the best.....I could then buy the one I wanted....simples. See the following link for all the different Amps/Cab's you can try! https://line6.com/legacy/basspodxt Its in good condition, comes in original box with PS/USB and the pilots handbook. Happy to answer any questions.
  8. Bugger...that's got me thinking now...that's a great price. The best price I could see online was £349....must resist!
  9. Hi, Christmas has left its mark, Tiny Tim needs a good meal and a new crutch (ooo err misses) and Mrs Cratchit reckons I have too many bases. She's even offered to add two more baubles to the tree if I don't sell one of my basses......how very kind. So to keep her happy...up for sale is my BB614, its a stock BB614 with an added pick-guard (Courtesy of Andy Travis). It comes with a functional Soft Ritter Gig bag if required. Weight is approx 3.9 kg (on bathroom scales) It's in great condition and plays really well. The only thing to note (see pictures) is there are two very light stains on the back of the neck. Clearly it doesn't effect the tone or the playability of the bass, but wanted to point it out to any potential buyers. Its £230 Shipped within the UK, or £215 collected/delivered (within 50 miles). In terms of trades, I'm only looking for a beat buddy or Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig. Happy to answer any questions, or to provide more pic's if required.

  10. I bought this bass earlier this year to go alongside the other BB’s on my music room wall. However, following the arrival of my new bass the credit card company still want paying (fascists) so I need to generate some cash by selling the BB’s, my BB234 & BB425 have already gone. 😢 Up next is my BB614, purchased earlier this year from Basschat's very own BB aficionado, Andy Travis. Its in great condition and plays really well. The only thing to note (see pictures) is there are some very light dark stains on the back of the neck. Clearly it doesn't effect the tone of the bass, but wanted to point it out. It also comes with a functional Soft Ritter Gig bag. Weight is approx 3.9 kg (on bathroom scales) Happy to answer any questions, or to provide more pic's if required. I can also drive up to 50 miles to deliver if preferred.

  11. Hi, I haven't got an accurate weight. The yamaha centre in london say its 4kgs. Cheers.
  12. Yamaha BB234 - £150 plus shipping, or welcome to collect (or give it a noodle) from Diss in Norfolk. I’m not looking for any trades at the moment, just a straight sale. I bought this bass earlier this year to go alongside the other BB’s on my music room wall. However, following the arrival of my new bass the credit card company want paying (fascists) so I need to generate some cash by selling the BB’s. It will come with the original strap buttons, not the ones shown in the photo. Happy to answer any questions, or provide more photo’s Overview The BB 234’s body is crafted from lightweight alder to produce a smooth, deep bass tone with a beefy midrange and a slightly sizzling high end. Its strong, full-bodied sound works well when paired with the brightness of a maple neck, adding plenty of depth and dynamics to the overall tone. The maple neck is coupled with a rosewood fingerboard, adding complexity to the high end and providing a smooth playing experience. The neck also features an incredibly thin profile, improving its playability and feel to suit modern and traditional players. Versatile Custom V3 Pickups The Yamaha BB 234 is equipped with a set of powerful custom V3 pickups, with a split single-coil at the neck and a bar single-coil at the bridge. This configuration is perfect for players who enjoy playing a wide range of musical styles, while the ceramic magnets ensure the bass delivers a clear, well-defined sound. The custom V3 pickups offer a beautiful, full-bodied tonality, with an excellent articulation that adds to playing dynamics. A single tone control and 2 volume controls provide versatile tone shaping, allowing players to dial in the perfect sound for their playing. High-Quality Hardware Yamaha’s BB Bass Guitar is finished with a range of high-quality appointments, delivering excellent sound, feel, and playability. A set of lightweight tuners provide better balance than standard tuners, complementing the overall feel of the bass while its open-gear design adds to the Yamaha’s aesthetics. A 4-bolt plate holds the neck to the body, providing extra cut to the overall tone, while the urea nut helps improve string stability. The vintage style bridge also adds to the stunning look of the BB 234, providing the bass with its classic look. Specifications Body: Alder Neck: Maple (Satin Finish) Neck Joint: Standard 4-Bolt Fingerboard: Rosewood Scale: 863,6 mm Nut: Urea Nut Width: 40mm Tuner: Light Weight Open Gear Chrome Bridge: Vintage Type Pickguard: 1-Ply Pickup: YAMAHA 1x Split SC, 1x SC Controls: 2 x Volume, 1 x Master Tone Colour: Natural Satin
  13. Yamaha BB425 - £180 plus shipping, or welcome to collect (or give it a noodle) from Diss in Norfolk. I’m not looking for any trades at the moment, just a straight sale. I bought this bass earlier this year to go alongside the other BB’s on my music room wall. However, following the arrival of my new bass the credit card company want paying (fascists) so I need to generate some cash by selling the BB’s. Overall it’s in good condition, however there are a couple of scratches close to the rear strap button (see photos) Happy to answer any questions, or provide more photo’s Yamaha say (well they would) The Yamaha BB425, 5-String bass guitar is an excellent entry-level instrument for up and coming Rock bassists, you want a little more from their bass guitar. Overview Alder Body & Rosewood Fingerboard The BB425’s body is constructed from alder, a highly popular choice of wood for bass production, producing a deep, smooth tone whilst remaining lightweight and highly durable. The rosewood fingerboard has a 10" radius and features 21 frets with classic white oval inlays, creating a beautiful aesthetic and smooth playing surface. The 5-piece maple/nato neck provides a combination of bright, sweet tonal characteristics, adding plenty of complexity to the highs and thickening up the low end. Bar/Split Single-Coil Pickups The BB425 features two powerful pickups, with a bar single-coil pickup at the bridge and a split Single-coil pickup in the middle. These premium-quality pickups deliver a full-bodied sound, offering excellent articulation while remaining dominant in its tone. This is ideal for a range of playing styles from deep, ringing bass tones to fast and aggressive slap bass riffs. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing & Neck One of the most unique design aspects of the BB425 is the diagonal body thru stringing. This work by angling the string at 45 degrees at the saddle, reducing stress and securing the tensions of the strings. The larger than normal attachment area to the saddle helps for improved transmission of vibration, resulting in a fuller and more articulate sound. The 5-piece bolt-on neck is constructed from 5-pieces of maple and nato for maximum durability and style. This design helps to prevent the neck from warping or curling over long periods of time. Specifications Construction: Bolt-On Scale Length: 34” (863.6mm) Fingerboard: Rosewood Radius 123 5/8” (600mm) Frets: 21 Body: Alder Neck: Maple/Nato (or Mahogany) 5pcs Nut: Urea Bridge: Vintage Style Pickups: Front – Split Single, Rear – Single Blade Controls: Master Volume, Master Tone
