  1. Fantastic acoustic bass amp. Full details on the Double bass/EUB for sale page.
  2. Anyone like to buy a Phil Jones Bighead? The unit is in new-ish condition, but the cables have somehow migrated to parts unknown. I suspect I've used them for other things. Anyway, they're all pretty standard. Postage extra, but it's pretty tiny so shouldn't be much.

  4. Now surplus to requirements is this very fine amp from German acoustic amplification boffins AER (original MRRP £1289). I bought it to amplify an upright bass and it does an fantastic job ... extremely transparent direct out of a Realist without a pre-amp. I added a stand that allows you to get it off the floor and angle it up towards you. It also has the original AER padded cover. Condition is extremely good... a few marks and dings on the bottom of the combo and on one corner (please refer to pictures). I've taken the plunge (and taken out a mortgage) and bought a new AI Clarus amp and cab. I would obviously much prefer collection from TA11 in Somerset. I'd be happy to meet someone within an hour's drive or at a push I could bring it to London. Here's a description of the not-so-basic performer I found online: ' The Basic Performer Acoustic Amp with its specially designed construction and its 4 x 60 watt power is an ideal tool for acoustic and electric bass-amplification. More than that, it suits very well for all instruments with strength in the low register, e.g.: cello, harp etc. Apart from its two channels with three-band tone- control and mute-switch it offers a compressor and a notch filter. Long scale lengths, huge body sizes, and resonance problems are only some trouble zones of the acoustic instrument. The small twin-cone system is perfect - it is fast, provides a superior coverage for the critical mid-range and has got enough substance in the bass range. The AER Basic Performer has four 8"-twin-cone speakers which are individually powered by four 60W power amps provide for the required surface area and the necessary sound pressure level. The special AER band-pass / bass-reflex cabinet design supports the reproduction of even the lowest frequencies with definition. Hi-end preamps, proper filters and additional professional sound design make the Basic Performer amplifier a multitalented all-round solution. The sound characteristics of this AER amp are full range, open and light - breathing as well as grumbling and surprisingly appropriate for far more instruments than the bass-related instruments such as harp, cello, accordion … or even try a jazz guitar.

  5. I’ve bought it, so fingers crossed… will report back
  6. Thanks Owen… did you use it for upright?
  7. Should mention I’m looking to amp an upright and I’m looking for that transparent’ AI sound
  8. Anyone own or know anything about these? One for sale and seems to be the original model… my understanding is that it’s a more powerful version of the older AI bass amps, but can’t find a great deal of info online.
  9. God, I want this….https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125408783088?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=DOFpg2tIRcW&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=3y9rdxSdSHG&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  10. I can vouch for the fantastic work the Bristol Violin Shop do. With an adjustable bass and a set up this is a steal.
