  1. Another ex-drummer here. Started at 11, but switched to bass for logistical puposes later on. I'm currently not playing either! What I've never lost, is my drumming ear - it's the rhythm I always focus on. Even playing bass, I would have always decribed my style as percussive - almost like I'm drumming. Always with a pick, lots of ghost notes, all over the place, really! What is the rarest thing ever to find....a great drummer. I've played alongside loads of people masquerading as drummers, whereas I can only think of a couple that really were. Knocking out a 4/4 with occasional cymbal crashes is not a drummer (if that's all they do)......most I played with ignored the song, and just steamed through, just cluless. The bass playing job is just a million times easier alongside a proper drummer. Rant over! 😁
  2. Last time I was playing regularly I used them. Found them also to be long lasting, with a nice feel and tone. Definitely a step up from the regular D'addario Nickels I'd used previously for years (not the same set, though!)
  3. My best BD experience was when I had a bass with them on a comission sale. Long time went by, it clearly wasn't going to sell any time soon, and I needed the cash and it gone. I rang them to withdraw it, and pay whatever to have it sent back. Whilst I was talking to the assistant about it (he was great), Mark clearly overheard our conversation. He took the phone from the assistant, and proceeded to give me a right old telling off/tongue lashing for withdrawing the bass! I kept polite, as I obviously just wanted it back. He eventually put his assistant back on, and it was sorted. He couldn't apologise enough, clearly quite shocked as well at the behavior of his boss. Must have been having a bad day......!

    Sold Andy a gorgeous yellow cable! Amazing to deal with, great comms and instant payment. Thanks again Andy! 👍
  5. VAN DAMME 2x4mm HIGH POWER SPEAKON TO SPEAKON CABLE 75cm- NEW! I bought this, and an instrument cable (also listed) brand new from Designacable on 21/8/21. Due to circumstances, I plugged it in once to try it in the combo and cab, and that's it. I put it in the drawer, and it's lain there since. As I move away from the bass world, everything must go. I have a couple of other items for sale on here at the mo. The lead is amazingly well made - I'm sure many on here have used the firm before. Great company who make super quality bespoke stuff. Hard to get decent photos, as I am useless near a camera. But I'm sure you get the idea.....it's a new, high quality, speakon. Only asking £10, plus £2.50 postage, UK only. Payment via PayPal 'gift' of Bank Transfer. Please PM with any interest - and thanks for looking! SB 😁
  6. VAN DAMME XKE GOLD INSTRUMENT CABLE 10m- NEW! Neutrik straight to angled. I bought this, and a Speakon (also listed) brand new from Designacable on 21/8/21. Due to circumstances, I plugged it in once to try it, and that's it. I put it in the drawer, and it's lain there since. As I move away from the bass world, everything must go. I have a couple of other items for sale on here at the mo. The lead is amazingly well made - I'm sure many on here have used the firm before. Great company who make super quality stuff. Colour is the lead is yellow - yes, Spongebob yellow. What else would you expect? It looks fabulous! Hard to get decent photos, as I am useless wrapping cables. But I'm sure you get the idea..... Cost me £25 - only asking £10, plus £2.50 postage, UK only. Payment via PayPal 'gift' of Bank Transfer. Please PM with any interest - and thanks for looking! SB 😁
  7. LEVY'S M4 STRAP - BLACK Nice quality leather strap, bought by myself in the Summer. Light home use only. A nicely slightly used strap, essentially! Was very stiff when it came to me (from Guitar Guitar), loosening up nicely now. Think I've scored a BC own-goal with that description.....🤔 As I move out of the bass world, everything must go....have a few other items on here as well. It's the same as this one here - https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/product/11090713013431--levys-m4-blk Only asking £10, plus £2 postage, UK only. Payment via PayPal 'gift' or Bank Transfer, both fine. Sold loads on here before, please check my FB thread for references. Please PM with any interest - thanks for looking! SB 😁
  8. Both now sold elsewhere. 😁
  9. No problems at all, Peter! Fab bass that I'm sure another BC''er will cherish. Although I take zero responsibility for the carpet in my pics. That was here when we moved in, LOL! 😁
  10. ASHDOWN STUDIO JUNIOR 15w BASS COMBO Perfect for practice! Bought by myself back in June, this practice combo has only seen slight bedroom use, and is therefore in mint condition. Cost £80 new, only asking £40, and that will include free UK courier to your door. Please check my BC feedback for references. PM with any interest, and thanks for looking! SB 😀
  11. Thanks - appreciated. 👍 It is a beast, that's for sure...but still very light....and cheap! 😁
