  1. Hey, sorry for the late reply - I had covid and things have been a bit sketchy. Although my problems stopped short of the amp actually cutting out, I did find a solution, albeit an expensive one. I bought a new second hand amp, the same MB combo (am I crazy?). I had it shipped to my bandmate's house in Birmingham (we do most of our gigs in the Midlands), used it at a gig last month and it was great. Amp no.1 is playing nicely at the moment for practice - if it starts getting crotchety again I turn all the knobs back and forth several times, and that gets rid of any unwanted crackling. I also have it sitting on a chair for added clarity when practicing. I don't know if that's that helpful to you really... Maybe I should have been twice shy after being bitten, but I love the MB sound - to me it is a wonderful blank canvas. Did you get yours back from Essex Amps, and if so what was their verdict?

  3. Selling this excellent headphone amp from sfx. The sound is so articulate and clear. These don't come up for sale second hand very often, and I may regret moving this one on. I have recently bought a Torpedo Cab M on here, hence this sale, but I can imagine missing the beautiful simplicity of the Micro H. I noticed that one of the knobs is slightly wobbly (see video) but it works fine. 20220618_121627.mp4

  5. Gruvgear Gigblade EDGE E-Guitar gig bag in decent condition. As shown in pictures, I've been using it for my Squier CV 60s Mustang Bass. There are some velcroed bits of padding inside that can be moved around to accommodate guitars/basses of different sizes or shapes. It's very lightweight and handy to carry over the shoulder - no more snagging your instrument on the top of doorways, low ceilings etc. As pictured there are some slight abrasions to the base and a few small marks on the orange padding inside. Would prefer collection/meet up, but postage considered at extra cost.
  6. So good they named it twice. In as new condition apart from some heavy duty Velcro attached to the base. Comes with original box, manual, and sticker. Now £30+free postage if needed.
  7. For some reason I didn't clock that I could run my Keeley Bassist with a battery. Will have to give that a go and see how long it can last. Another compressor that I used to own and has a battery compartment is the DOD Milk Box. Wish I hadn't sold mine now, as they're a bit more expensive to buy secondhand nowadays!
  8. What did you go for in the end, @MikanHannille? I also have a desire for simplicity in my set up, so would be interested to know...
  9. These guys know how to make an amazing pedal 👏🏻 GLWTS!
  10. An update on the saga. Towards the end of last year, the problems with my MB combo disappeared. A bit of crackle on the volume knob, but otherwise fine. I was so pleased with the amp's Lazarus act that I recently did what I felt I should have done years ago and bought another of the combos via basschat, to live at my bandmate's house in the Midlands, where we do most of our gigs. (I live in South London with no car.) No more going direct or plugging into unfamiliar rigs. Practicing with the same rig I gig with. Great. Then, over the past week, the problems with amp number 1 came back with a vengeance. Crackling and distorted notes up and down the fretboard. So now I'm contemplating whether to: (a) send it off to be repaired; (b) buy a used LM head and attempt to install it (assuming the problem is with the head part); (c) see if I can sell the combo as 'not working' and buy another combo amp/head and cab, perhaps as @TheGreek counselled wisely earlier on this thread, from a manufacturer with better customer service such as Ashdown.
  11. That's a good looking bass! Nice dark rosewood fretboard. The gold control plate sets off the brass saddles nicely too.
  12. Here's what Keeley say about the pedal: https://robertkeeley.com/product/bassist-compressor/
  13. I'm intrigued by the Beta - never tried one, but they always sound good in YouTube demos. I read somewhere there are MOSFET, and germanium versions... which one is this? Cheers
  14. Great compressor in very good condition. Bought recently on here and I like it a lot... I just have my eye on an upgrade. If that object of desire goes before I find a buyer for this, I'll be keeping the Keeley and withdrawing this ad. Obligatory ovnilab review: http://www.ovnilab.com/reviews/keeleygc2.shtml
  15. One Control Sonic Silver Sonic Peg, bought on Basschat following an Items Wanted post. It's a killer pedal, up there with the best I've used, but I'm going in a different direction for my tone shaping needs. One Control product page: https://one-control.com/products/sonic-silver-peg Basschat thread praising the pedal: Pictures to follow!

  17. Bought a One Control Sonic Silver Peg from Paul after I posted in Items Wanted that I was on the lookout for one. He sent me some useful pictures of it showing the condition, and posted the pedal to me very quickly. Highly recommended! 👌
  18. I did this course during the first lockdown. I was a stubbornly pick-only player beforehand; after finishing the course, fingerstyle plucking felt completely natural and it's now my preferred technique. Of course the Technique Accelerator covers a lot of other stuff, but this particular area of improvement gave rise to a sea change for me.

  20. Tony bought a cable from me. Easy transaction, quick payment, a pleasure to deal with. 👍🏻👍🏻
