  1. BUMP for a final price drop to £600 - I've been offered similar money from a store to resell. It's a beautiful bass and I'm sure will get snapped up quickly if it's hanging on a shelf for someone to pick up and enjoy! Last chance for BC'ers...
  2. Alright fine. Note to self - don't guestimate weights! Weight is 8.4 lbs on bathroom scales. It is light, but I guess light is subjective (My main bass has an aluminium neck haha!)
  3. Bump for a great deal on a one-of-400, limited edition bass. Last one I can see that sold online in a natural finish went for £950...so grab a bargain!
  4. 21/04 - PRICE DROP to £850 29/04 - PRICE DROP to £800 04/05 - PRICE DROP to £750 12/05 - PRICE DROP to £700 ! 20/05 - FINAL PRICE DROP to £600 ! (If this doesn't attract attention here by the end of the month it'll be heading to a shop to resell - last chance!) For sale is a lovely example of what a Gibson bass should be. A bit of background - In my humble opinion these were the best basses Gibson has made in over a decade. These were a very limited run (400 of two colour variations) in 2007. This one is was born on June 5th of that year. I have owned 3 of these basses now - the main reason I adore these basses so much is just the comfort of playing. Weight is 8.4lbs on bathroom scales, have a super comfortable neck, a small double-cut body with excellent reach up the neck, and are solid as a rock. Reason for sale is simply that this one is not getting played due to Fenders fitting better in my current band. The bass - - It sounds like a good Gibson - has Thunderbird pickups but seems to have a little more upper-mid clarity. - Construction wise it's a set neck, Mahogany body, a layer of Walnut, and then a lovely Flamed Maple top. All chrome original hardware. Original Dollar sign truss plate (although I have a spare 'Les Paul' plate that I'll include if you don't like the bling). - I bought this from Reverb a year or so back, and it had creme pickup covers which I thought were pretty horrible looking so I've replaced them with the original colour black. The creme ones will be included in the sale. (The black ones currently on the bass are actually molded for an arch-topped body, so there is a slight curve in the pickup surrounds, not something that bugs me but worth mentioning). - Condition wise it is in very good nick sparing some buckle rash on the rear of the bass. Show in pictures. - Neck is straight and true. - Edit: I just remembered I have also replaced the strap buttons with Schaller-style lock buttons. I will provide the originals with sale. Bass will come in original Gibson Hardcase, in good condition but has the odd scratch. No trades please. I'm based in North London (N4, Haringey). I have a practice amp here which you're welcome to try it out on. I would prefer not to courier, but contact me for details. Dave
  5. For sale is a wonderful American-made Ampeg. It sounds incredible and is the most lightweight and easy to transport 410 I've owned. Only selling because band requirements mean I've bought a 810, so this needs to go. It is, I believe, a quite rare early model. It's serial number is 'Promo 7' The cab is currently stored in South London (SE14), but I can get it to North London (N4) easily, and also rehearse regularly in Brighton, so can deliver south. I'm not looking to arrange a courier - I'd prefer to have someone come to my place in N4, have me make them a cuppa, try out the cab and love it, and the take it away with them. However, if you want to arrange a courier, you are welcome. The cab has sadly lost a wheel. It would be an easy replacement at a cost of about £30 or less. Will now accept £350 as this HAS to go. Dave
  6. Hey @Grantd, where abouts are you located?
  7. Ideally not looking to sell but I'd accept offers. I have a lovely Ampeg Heritage 410 which I'm looking to trade for an Orange, for reasons of endorsements and looking-the-same-as-another-Orange-cab. I do not have photos of the Ampeg currently, but it's this one - https://www.gak.co.uk/en/ampeg-heritage-hsvt-410hlf/114170?gclid=Cj0KCQiAnuDTBRDUARIsAL41eDq6HUeIwXAk-gGyv7jtIaxVh8qKBP1hjBLK2EoYx90WYsEe_51UL3UaAiQVEALw_wcB The Ampeg, has sadly lost a wheel. It would be an easy replacement at a cost of about £30 (I have links to buy them from if you're not aware...) I would take the Orange SP410, or the OBC, but it needs to be and Orange, and orange (coloured..!) I am based in London, rehearse in Brighton, and the cab is currently in a rehearsal studio in Bristol (I know...right?). I could collect it and meet somewhere on the M4, or meet up in Bristol/London/Brighton. Come forth Orange boxes of bass.
  8. Thanks @petergales - it certainly is a work of art inside. Incredibly well made and I'm going to miss it greatly!
  9. Way Huge Swollen Pickle! Super bass friendly fuzz with all the lows and all of the dirt you need to doom for dayssss. Plus some nice synthy overtones and major tweakability. Comes with all the gubbins...original box, badges, paperwork. Has quality velcro on the underside which can be removed if requested. £7 postage to UK. Looking for £80 ONO. Dunlop say... The most sought after and corpulent Way Huge pedal is back! The Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz MkII surrenders super high-gain fuzz with copious amounts of smooth low-end to all who dare plug into it. With a twist of the Sustain control, you're taken from mild crunch to Armageddon! The Filter control retains its trademark insane range of heavily band-pass-filtered tones, distinguished by remarkable girth and sizzle, and the Loudness puts out enough volume to clobber any amp! Newly added features include a tone stack Scoop control that elicits classic Swollen Pickle mid-scoop or a flat mid-frequency sweep, and a Crunch knob to adjust the compression intensity of the fuzz. Finally, under the hood, the MkII has two internal mini controls; Voice sets the intensity of the external scoop control from light to heavy mid cut, and Clip varies between two sets of clipping diodes for smooth or opened fuzz sustain.
  10. Sadly I am looking to part with my Matamp GT200 Mk 2 - the later and current model with the powerful Mid EQ. It's an absolute beast and is in my opinion the greatest bass amp in production today (with by far the coolest Matamp logo...) but it is sadly surplus to requirements and I can justify keeping it around just for studio work, so she has to move on. No issues, faults and in very good external nick. Has Rocsolid cover. Sonic heft provided by KT88's and the Mat C-Core transformer which makes it a heavvyyy beast (28kg). I am based in London and would prefer a collection / arrange meet ups. I also regularly rehearse in Brighton and Bristol so can meet up somewhere near / on the way to these areas too. The history of this is that it was bought here from Matamp's own Dave Coates about 5 years back (I believe...) He will gladly vouch for its badass-ness. Looking for SOLD, as it's in great nick and there's no waiting time. Thanks! Dave
