  1. Yep the OW is very nice to play, but its very brown to look at.
  2. No, not ibanezzzzz One is black Warwick corvette short scale, the other is a overwater progress, with a 33 scale, and 17mm spacing. I suspect I may send the overwater away to be painted a nice bright colour.
  3. Never played a 5 string, and never played a 35 inch. I've been complaining my current basses are dull, this on the other hand makes me want to play. Desparetly trying to think of reasons not to buy this. Best I've come up with is that it's not passive.
  4. I'm glad its not just me then! I play for fun, no band, no gigs, just something to keep the old grey matter ticking over at my time of life. Don't get me wrong, there's definitely a large dose of, is the grass greener, but more often than not there turns out to be no grass, rather than greener grass. But its not about the bling as such, just good looks that make me want to pick it up and play. For example, Mr Travis of this parish has a very nice orange BB (he won't sell, I've tried) which I would rather have over some high end boutique instruments. There are clearly times when function trumps form, I'm not interested a good looking nail or hammer. However, a sack would keep me warm, but I wouldn't wear it to an interview or a first date, because I want something that makes me feel good, and thats the same when picking up my bass, I want it to make me feel good.
  5. I have two bass guitars, one plays very nice and has a great sound, the other kind of does the job. (names of manufacturers withheld to avoid upset 😉 ) The trouble is they are both soooo dull to look at, that I can't be bothered to pick them up, they just don't inspire me at all. I think a bass should make you want to play it all the time, and when you do stop playing, you want to pick it up again. Anyone else suffer from 'dish washer' basses that do the job well, but are ultimately forgettable?
  6. To quote MB1 when he missed out on one of my sales......"BUGGER" Condolences to the MB1 family.
  7. Hi All, Continuing my transition to a Aguilar fanboy, this little beauty is up for sale (or trade for an Aguilar Agro pedal), its in great condition and a great pedal. This provides a good overview. Please note, I don't have the original box. Happy to post to the UK (Sorry European Chums) for £5, or you're are welcome to collect.
  8. Wow what a looker, if I had the cash I would be on my way to Yarmouth now.
  9. This used to be mine, definitely a case of sellers regret. Someone is going to pick up a cracking bass.
  10. Hi, Has anyone tried one of the new Tech 21 bass fly rig, any thoughts on it. I've used the original, but like the idea of having the choice of Sansamp or VT settings, and a dedicated effects loop. Cant help but compare fly rig to the Bass Simplifier and the Atomic bass box. Cheers
  11. I've been playing the bass for about 3 years now, and have spent enough to fund an uprising in some small south American country, and lost enough in selling them to fund a south African uprising in Malawi. If I was starting again, I would keep the bass (Ibanez SR500) and the cheap amp (Fender Rumble 15) that the wife and kids got me as my first bass. The trouble was I always thought the next bass was going to be the best, the most comfy and easiest to play. Occasionally that was true, but mostly wasn't.

  13. Hi, I advertised this earlier in the year, but clearly got the price point wrong, so time for a reduction. I had a go at the home recording thing, but didn't get on with it, so time to clear the decks (no pun intended) Once again these are in good condition and come with the original power supply (I don't have the original box). The eagle eyed will notice that they are not the same height, that's because I have shown 1 with the stand down, and the other with stand up.

  15. Hi, No problems with balance on a strap, sits really well. I would definitely give one a go, the stripes do take a bit of getting used to. Neil.
  16. Hypothetically (I couldn’t condone such caddish behaviour) you could nip down to GG try some short scales (don forget the Gretsch G2220). You can then go home and order the one you liked, try it out on your rig for 14 days in the comfort of your own home, before returning it to GG (keep boxes). I know its a rotten thing to do, but I did buy a G&L short scale from them in the end, so worked out best for everyone.

  18. Hi, I tried doing the home recording thing, but didn't get on with it, so I might as well see if any fellow BCer's want the kit. Open to trades for Aguilar pedals, and happy to sell as a pair, although I would prefer a straight sale so I can get one of the limelight basses in the for sale section!

  19. Hi I looking to see if anyone would like to trade this for a Aggy Pedal in very good condition (Not the Octamizer), alternatively I'm looking to sell for around £110 delivered. I took this is an part ex and haven't used it as much as I thought. It comes in the originally Tech 21 box (not the usual tin can), it does not come with a power supply. Happy to post in the UK (Sorry EU chums). The SansAmp Para Driver DI offers detailed tone shaping for any signal source and gives your instrument a natural warmth and presence as if you were running it through a tube pre-amp. Our exclusive, 100% analogue circuitry eliminates the unnatural harmonics of piezo pickups. It is particularly useful with acoustic, electric and bass guitars, and upright bass, as well as violin, cello, etc. The Para Driver functions as a pre-amp, a stomp box, as a standard direct box with EQ (when Blend is at minimum), and as a standard transparent DI (in bypass). When you engage the SansAmp circuitry via the on-board footswitch, it gives you the sound and responsiveness of a miked-up pro stage rig direct into a recording console or P.A. system. You can also simultaneously plug straight into a power amp or conventional amp. Happy to answer any questions. Cheers
  20. Hi, I've decided to go down the Aguilar route and am looking to trade my HX Stomp for a Aguilar Tone Hammer Preamp pedal in great condition. Alternatively I'm happy to let it go for the cost of a new TH Pre-amp (~£250). My Stomp is in very good condition, but as the name implies its designed to be trod on, so it does have the odd scratch. It has been upgraded to the latest version of firmware (3.1.). I know the Stomp does have a rather nice Aggy amp, but I just don't need all the other bells and whistles. The stomp comes with the Line 6 power supply and USB cable, I don't have the original box, but it will come very well wrapped. Happy to post within the UK (sorry EU Chums), postage will probably be a £5 I'm assuming most of the folks on BC already know what the Stomp is capable of, but just in case, here is the science. The Line 6 HX Stomp is the latest addition to the Helix family. This deceptively small unit packs a formidable array of features, many of which are identical to the original Helix amp. With over 300 effects and models, a simple interface and a rugged gig-ready enclosure, the HX Stomp is your all-in-one performing rig! Utilizes the same HX Modelling as Helix Over 300 effects and models from Helix, M-Series, and legacy Line 6 products Up to 6 simultaneous amp, cab, and effect blocks (including a looper and IR loading) 3 capacitive-sensing footswitches with color-coded LED rings facilitate fast editing TRS dual expression pedal/footswitch input extends creative control capabilities Stereo inputs & outputs Stereo effects loop (mono/stereo TRS send + stereo returns) MIDI compatible USB Connectivity Any questions just ask.
  21. Hi, Up for sale is my Miami blue G&L USA Fallout base, its in great condition, plastic cover is still on the pick guard! Great sound and easy to play. Weight is 3.85kg Happy to post to the UK (at buyers expense) or can meet up within 80 mile radius for a social exchange. PM me if you need any further info/pic's. Here is the info from G&L. The coolest short scale bass on the block is now available from G&L! This 30” short scale powerhouse features a G&L Magnetic Field Design humbucking pickup controlled by a 3-position mini–toggle switch for parallel/split/OMG modes – just like an L-1000 – bringing anything from modern to old school tones to your fingertips. What’s more, players used to a traditional 34″ scale will find this pint size puncher super easy to play. Other features include an Alder body, Maple bolt-on neck, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard, Saddle-Lock Bridge and Custom G&L Ultra Lite tuners, and La Bella Round wound short scale strings, .042-.060-.082-.104. Spec PICKUPS: G&L Magnetic Field humbucking pickup BODY WOOD: Alder NECK WOOD: Hard Rock Maple with Caribbean Rosewood fingerboard NECK PROFILE: CLF/G&L 1 5/8" slim C with 9 1/2" radius 30" Scale length FRETS: Medium Jumbo, Jescar 57110 18% nickel silver TUNING KEYS: Custom G&L "Ultra-Lite" with aluminium tapered string posts BRIDGE: Leo Fender-designed G&L Saddle Lock with chrome-plated brass saddles ELECTRONICS: 3-position mini toggle for parallel/split/OMG pickup modes, volume, tone CASE: Gig Bag Video Demo
  22. Hi All, Now all my pedals have gone I no longer need a pedal power supply, so up for sale is my Fuel Tank Chameleon. It comes with the original cables (as per below) and there are some additional ones included as well. Any questions, just ask. The good Works as it should The bad When I got it there was a layer of glue on the bottom which has been rubbed down and covered with Velcro, and doesn't look very pretty. From the T-Rex site :- The Fuel Tank Chameleon is only the latest addition to the T-Rex Fuel Tank family. Our original Fuel Tank Classic features 9V DC, 12V DC and 12V AC outlets in three isolated blocks of 500mA each and is ideal for medium-sized pedal boards. It comes with lots of single patch cables and a multiple link cable. The Fuel Tank “Juicy Lucy” powers 5 12V pedals and also offers great extras, like multiple unit linking. The baby of the family – Fuel Tank Junior – is a good choice for a small number of 9V pedals. It offers both current doubling to 240 mA and voltage doubling to 18V. Cables 1x Red AC cable with 2,1mm - 2,5mm connectors for use on the 12V AC outlet 1x Orange polarity inverter cable with 2.1 mm barrel plug - 2.1 mm female barrel plug 1x Black DC cable with 2,1mm DC - 3,5mm mini-jack connectors 2x Black 20cm DC cable with 2,1mm - 2,1mm connector 4x Black 50cm DC cable with 2,1mm - 2,1mm connector 1x Black 75cm DC cable with 2,1mm - 2,1mm connector 1x Black 100cm DC cable with 2,1mm - 2,1mm connector 1x Mains power cable
