  1. Hi, it looks likes like this can be used as a headphone practice amp with headphone out and aux in for connecting external device ... is that correct? If so what is tge quality of the headphone amp like please? Thanks. Alan
  2. Hi, I think that you are also able to use this as a headphone amp ... is that correct and if so what is the quality like? Cheers
  3. Hi, they work very well with IEM. Good for home practice as well. Have a look at this review.... https://bassmagazine.com/artists/review-backbeat-rumble-pack Hope that helps!
  4. Hi, selling my Bass Backbeat that was very recently bought this year from BassDirect. Here is the information about the unit as well as a few photos. Happy to post but UK only. Thanks. Music, especially bass, is felt as much as heard. Without a cab on stage, bass players can’t feel what they are playing. Great for singers and sound guys, but bass players are stranded on a deserted island of silence when it comes to feeling low notes. BackBeat makes you feel like you’re standing in front of a cab. It matches: the intensity of your playing; the pitch of the note you’re playing WEARABLE : Clip it on ; Plug it in; Move anywhere on stage; Feel every note PORTABLE: lightweight; fits in your gig bag; recharges fast; play and practice anywhere SELF-CONTAINED: no external amp needed; no external power needed; true bypass; battery lasts 3-5 hrs; IEMs/Headphones and auxiliary input, you can practice anywhere Includes: 1 x BackBeat 1 x Backbeat case (£30 option if ordered separately) 1 x wall charger 1 x short 1/4" TS cable * Please note, the clips are tight so may be hard to fit on to very think straps, we recommend the Comfort Strap as the perfect partner.
  5. Hi, can you tell me what the mark is on the back if the neck of the bass please? It looks a little like a burn mark but I'm it's not! Thanks. Alan
  6. Price Drop: Now £1800. £1700 final price drop. In a moment of sheer Lockdown Madness I bought this new only a few weeks ago from a music shop in Germany. I was convinced that it was exactly what I wanted! Unfortuately to get the natural finish that I wanted I had to buy from overseas and that has meant additional costs ... but having received it I quickly realised that I am definitely a jazz type bass kind of player. I just much prefer the ability to be able to pan the pickups. Anyway I am based in Cambridge and can ship anywhere in the UK. No trades thanks. The bass itself is a fantastic instrument with a lovely smooth roasted maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. I have set it up with a low action and it is honestly one of the easiest and most comfortable basses I have ever played. I live in Cambridge and would be happy to talk about meeting up. Have kept the box it was delivered in so can use that for a courier as well. Here is the spec and a few photos. Model StingRay 4 Special Size 13-1/2" wide, 1-5/8" thick, 44-7/8" long (34,3 cm wide, 4,1 cm thick, 114,0 cm long) Weight 8 lbs, 8 oz (3,86 kg) - varies slightly Body wood Ash Body finish High gloss polyester Body color Classic Natural Bridge Vintage Music Man top loaded chrome plated, steel bridge plate with vintage nickel plated steel saddles Pickguard Black Scale length 34" (86,4 cm) Neck radius 11" (27,9 cm) Headstock size 8-3/4" (22,2 cm) long Frets 22 - High profile, wide, stainless steel Neck width 1-5/8" (41,3 mm) at nut, 2-1/2" (63,5 mm) at last fret Neck wood Select roasted maple Fingerboard Rosewood Neck finish Gunstock oil and hand-rubbed special wax blend Tuning machines Custom Music Man, lightweight with tapered string posts and ergonomic clover design Truss rod Adjustable - no component or string removal
  7. What a superb bass. The tone sounds fabulous and overall it looks like one helluva 5 string. It is a great shame that for UK buyers we have to add 20% plus to the cost and from bitter experience buying anything from the EU at the moment is a nightmare to courier. But good luck with the sale!
  8. Yep it is a great bass to play and ... starting to have second thoughts about selling!
  9. Hi, it is 2014 and yes it has the hard fabric case. Hope that this helps.
  10. Thanks szunaP ... i took the description from elsewhere but think you are right and have updated ... and ... you are quite right that it is an excellent bass for slap!
  11. Dunlop super bright stainless steel 45 to 105... they seem to work really well with this bass
  12. Sadowsky UV70 Price drop to £1700 £ £1500 for limited time only as I have decided to pull the trigger on another bass! Olympic White that has aged Sadowsky case included. Ash ( I am told) with maple fingerboard, 20 frets, 10” radius, 1 ½” nut, white blocks and binding and thin matte nitro finish Full size body Tortoise Pickguard Sadowsky Hum-Cancelling J-Style Pickups Well balanced with superb definition at all the right frequencies, these pickups do it all with ease. They work in tandem with the active electronics to produce a wide range of tones to suit any application. The VTC (Vintage Tone Control) works by rolling off the high end to produce a slighter warmer sound. This is a great adjustment to have when you want to sit a bit more delicately in a mix. It is one of the many finer details that really help to bring out the best in your playing. There is a small chip in the neck joint that I have tried to show in one of the photos. It was there when I bought it from BassDirect. Fabulous bass that sounds terrific fingerstyle as well as slapped. Moving on as I have GAS! Happy to deliver within 20 m of Cambridge. Any questions don't hesitate to get in touch.
  13. Hi, is it possible to see a photo of the neck to get some idea of the action that is possible on this please? Thanks.
  14. Is there an adjustable truss rod? What are thecelectronics ( pre amp) please? Thanks
  15. What are the elctronics please? And is there a truss rod adjustment at the body end of the graphite neck? Thanks.
  16. Hi, has this bass been de-fretted or was it made as a fretless with block inlays? Cheers.
  17. Hi, Bought the PJB HA2 headphone amp in April at the start of lockdown. Incredible quality but have just bought an expensive AER amp that has headphone out and aux in so need to claw back some funds! Looking for £200 but will include postage. It really is as new and comes with the original packaging including leads and everything else. It is the second model in the Bighead series of headphone amps and it is a step up from the first model. It has a high resolution USB audio interface and long lasting lithium ion battery that is rechargeable. It is a headphone booster amp as well as a two band eq for bass. More information at: https://pjbworld.com/cms/index.php/product-ha-2/ Here is a review on YouTube:
  18. Many thanks for the information. It is a pity that I can't hear the amp and is a little out of my price range. The amp looks as if it has been well cared for and like Petey ... I am tempted! GLWTS
  19. MXR M81 Bass Pre Amp Selling my MXR bass preamp pedal. These are selling new for £160 and this one is in excellent condition and hardly used. Comes with original packaging and booklet. Looking for £90 including postage. Here’s some information about this pedal… The MXR Bass Preamp combines a pristine bass preamp with a studio-quality Direct Out in a Phase 90-sized box, providing clear tone without hogging precious pedalboard space. Use it to add a new voice to an old passive bass, sweeten up any amp, or put some special sauce on a particular song. Dial it in just the way you want it and send it straight to the house—pre or post-EQ—with the built-in Direct Out. The Bass Preamp features separate Input and Output level controls and a 3-band EQ section with sweepable midrange—from 250hz to 1khz—for extensive tonal flexibility. It’s all delivered super clean with high headroom thanks to our own Constant Headroom Technology™, and you can use the PRE/POST EQ switch to set whether or not your Direct Out signal is affected by the Bass Preamp’s EQ section. And of course, the Bass Preamp features a GROUND LIFT switch in case you encounter ground loop hum. The Bass Preamp is factory preset to operate in ¼” out buffered bypass and Direct Out active. For players who only want to use the ¼” out, there are two internal switches that disable the Direct Out and ¼” out buffered bypass for true ¼” out bypass mode. There are several demos on YouTube and here is a link to one of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEeaOE36E1o
  20. Open to offers but only for a limited time before the bass goes to London for sale!
  21. Hi, Have added a couple of photos. As you can see it has the micro tilt system and three bolt neck. Hope that this helps. Alan
