  1. Another vote for Superlux here. I can’t kill mine!
  2. Hi folks, For sale due to swapping to an iMac and 13” laptop, my 2018 MacBook Pro. i7 CPU, 16Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD! 2018 model, with the original box! NOTE: the price reflects a crack in the lower bezel (near where it says ‘MacBook Pro’) Collection much preferred from near Worcester.
  3. Yeah it was shoite. Mine went on Facebook within the week. Answered my own question!
  4. I can answer this now as mine arrived. Brief moment of panic when I saw the Euro plug but thankfully Thomann spotted me coming and added a UK adaptor in the box. First impressions? Built like the proverbial tank, I mean this thing is SOLID Everything feels great quality. Sounds? Here is where I'm a shade disappointed - I was intending to use this as a preamp and whilst it functions ok, the sounds I'm getting are still pretty flat and uninspiring when straight to the desk/PA. I need to spend more time with it but I'm also finding it struggles with the (admittedly stupidly high) output from my EMG pickup and clips when above 9 o clock on the gain! Overall I'm sure it'd do someone a turn but it's not for me, so it'll be hitting the classifieds imminently.
  5. Bumporama. Offers considered to get rid before they lock us all down again!
  6. Actually, I'm so glad you asked. I didn't really want to talk about it and I don't want to a fuss, but...
  7. I sort of agree. If the music/musician meant a lot to you, that's great (and it's certainly clear that EVH had that effect) but I don't really feel there's much to be gained by sharing your 'tribute' (particularly by murdering their songs) publicly. Maybe I'm too British (or just a cold, unfeeling git) but actually I'd extend that to all public outpourings of grief, including but not limited to: - 'U ok hun' style posts on Social Media - Tattoos of names / death dates on your skin in prominent places - Shrines of any kind (unless you're actually related to them) Re-reading the above, I am a cold, unfeeling git.
  8. They did, Amazon did refund me so I wasn’t out of pocket in the end, but annoying regardless.
  9. Hi all, I seem to be spaffing money endlessly on duff strings. Had a dodgy packet of Elixirs from Amazon, I seem to have killed a set of Ibanez coated strings in two rehearsals, tried some Lo Riders and may as well have taken sandpaper to my fingers and my backup Rotos are lasting even less than usual before going dead and throwing up intonation issues. Now some of this is not news to me, I have the same issue with guitar strings and it's only been because of Elixirs that I'm able to avoid changing them every frigging week...! But stone me, they are pricey for bass strings...so all of this leads me to looking at other coated strings. Has anyone tried the Markbass jobs that we have a basschat code for? I'd love to give a set a go but am struggling a bit with the spare cash given there are no gigs in the diary so would rather hear from someone who has tried them before parting with yet more cash for another set of bloody strings! Thanks in advance, James
  10. Hi everyone, Purchased just a couple of weeks ago when I thought I was at risk of Furlough (and thus likely to get bored!), but I have not had time to use it and it's just going to gather dust. Fantastic spec! Intel Core i5-9300H 4 Cores, 8 Threads 16GB RAM 2 x 256GB NVMe SSD 15.6" FHD 144Hz Display NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB Windows 10 home. Never left the desk, always used with a USB keyboard, so pretty much spotless. 11 months ebuyer warranty! Cheers, James
  11. https://m.thomann.de/gb/eden_module_terra_nova.htm?o=0&search=1601153933 Can't find all that much online about it, but seems to be a great deal! Rude not to?
  12. Like it? Want it? Don't have all the cash but do have a five string? Talk to me.
  13. No tender process was followed when the government awarded a contract to Computacenter for laptops for schools, cutting companies like mine straight out of being able to compete. Cheers, Boris.
  14. Now £1000 collected or add £28 for delivery via RMSD. Phenomenal laptop but I need to raise some cash for a rash bass related purchase haha! 2016 MacBook Retina 15 with Touch Bar i7 CPU 16Gb 500Gb SSD Radeon Pro 460 4Gb GPU Running Catalina, nothing makes this beastie struggle! Comes with Apple PSU
  15. Need the space...make an offer to get this gone over the weekend!
  16. We are seeing it in the PC industry...you try buying 'stock' of laptops at the moment, frigging impossible...
  17. I think the body had already been tweaked slightly - only took a small amount of swearing. Slight overhang treble side from the rear but stable as heck.
  18. Hi all, If anyone wants this, I'd like it out of the way. VERY powerful pickup and wearing new Jim Dunlop Super Brights with about 5 minutes play time on them. OLP stingray - had the truss rod seized, managed to get it working and turns freely now - neck is set just right but not MUCH more adjustment left (45-105s fitted now). Had to route more space for the truss aduster, largely hidden when mounted but wanted to be honest. It's in the way, plays well enough and sounds great. Postage possible.
  19. Squier Classic Vibe Neck (practically new, was listed but decided to build this is instead!) with a Vintage body - Wilkinson pickups (sound HUGE) and high mass bridge. Scruffy but fun! Sounds and plays great
