  1. So good, so funny and oh so true, absolutely loving it... great stocking filler. RECOVERS: Life as a bassist in covers bands, how to survive it, stay sane and maybe even learn some stuff eBook: NOAKES, ALFIE: Amazon.co.uk
  2. Here we have a stunning Black Stingray 5, which I acquired off this very forum a couple of years ago. It is very special in that the tone is the best Ray tone I have ever heard. I have two Rays and a SUB USA and I really would like to keep this but I have just bought a new bass which I have been after for a while which means one has to go. The history of this bass is that it was a special order for a young lady and it was a fretless, when it arrived she found it a little heavy and ordered a fretted 5 Ray and swapped the necks. So what you have here is a fully genuine Ray made up of the original body and the neck from a genuine second Stingray. It is slightly heavier than my other Ray but I believe that is where the tone comes from. It is so sweet. I have priced it to sell to recoup funds from my latest purchase. It comes complete with it's original Musicman hard case.
  3. Favouring the Yamaha Reface YC, does a superb Hammond.
  4. Hi All, Just started doing some recording with the guys in the band, we need to add some keys, hammond organ etc... but I don't now which keyboard to go with, or to go with a midi controller keyboard through pro tools. What suggestions?
  5. £27.50 including p&p to mainland UK In great condition, barely used. No shoulder straps, but who uses them? Velcro fitted.

  7. If it goes quickly, then I will do it for that. Bargain when you think what a fly rig, fuel tank and nano cost! Cheers Stuart
  8. My back up gig board, these are superb units, I added a nano board and T-Rex power supply. Might split, but it would be a pity. Great very versatile little unit that sounds immense. Full Description Sansamp The Tech 21 Bass Fly-Rig features a unique Character control that sweeps through the most storied vintage and modern tones. Three-band active EQ provides professional grade tweakability for any situation or gig. Add dirt and grind with the flick of a switch, and also add distortion by engaging the Pre-Boost. Octafilter The Octafilter feature offers an entire re-invented pallette of expression with a crazy amount of possibilities and features, from Minimoog®-style synth to funky town. The controls interact so that you can get dynamically-filtered clean, fuzz, and octave, as well as octave and fuzz together. When Q is at minimum, the range becomes a high-cut tone filter for different versions of clean, fuzz, octave, and octave and fuzz together. In addition you can then blend any of these combinations with your direct signal via the Mix control. Chorus The Chorus feature adds choral voicings of two instruments which was originally taken from Sansamp Bass Boost Chorus pedal. This feature also adds thickness and space, for a truly great sound. Switchable Pre/Post Boost This Pre-Boost mode enables you to interact with the SansAmp section to build up drive and distortion. In addition, the Post-Boost mode increases the overall volume to punch up fills and solos. Chromatic Tuner A simple and easy-to-use Chromatic Tuner. Simply hold down the CHR footswitch to engage the Tuner, which simultaneously mutes the signal path and allows you to tune your instrument without being heard. With all these great features the Tech 21 Bass Fly-Rig is a compact unit, which can easily fit into an instrument case.

  9. Now £500 Price includes Mainland UK shipping! Stunning 800w head bought new from Bass Direct including top quality Genzler gig bag, only gigged twice. I have too much bass equipment and have to rationalise a little. These are phenomenal amps, and so versatile, I was a died in the wool Markbass man until I tried this, if I was still gigging I would keep it, but my band has just split too so I am going to go into the woodshed for a bit and recoup some cash from my gigging kit. They say: Built for the demands of professional touring, the MAGELLAN™ 800 circuitry is housed in a classy, yet rugged aircraft-grade, brushed aluminium chassis with a sleek custom extruded front panel. •The dual channel design features: •Clean Channel – Pristine and Articulate (switchable with standard 1/4” latching footswitch) •Drive Channel – Voiced for a More Driven Tonal Signature and Harmonic Texture •Dual-Curve Variable Contour Circuitry •Curve A -- Classic to Modern -- Mid Scoop Curve •Curve B -- Thicker to Vintage -- Low-Mid Bump w/Tapered Top End •Flat Position -- Full Bypass •Active 3 Band EQ w/Parametric Mid Control •Signal Mute Switch •Input Pad Switch •Thermal Sensing Variable Speed Fan Cooling •Brushed All Aluminium, Anodised Chassis •2.67 Ohm Min.

  10. This might well have been my old one! I bought the red/black one off Bagsie because it was my main bass for years before I sold it to him, so it had a lot of history for me. These are massively underrated basses and I love them, but value is a tricky thing on them, the Warwick community sees them as a mistake and make them out to be less than a rockbass, but I have gigged mine for many years and it is such a nice instrument to play, I bought full blown Dolphins on the back of how good these were and was underwhelmed. This is also dangerously close to me......
