  1. That resonates with me, you're gonna take a hit on the cash and even if you trade it we be for an amp that WILL NOT SOUND AS GOOD (but be a bit easier to carry)
  2. Hey mate, can I take those? PM me details? Cheers. Chris
  3. The reality of selling on here is that you do, gear that's fully described and detailed tends to sell far more quickly than gear that's not 👍
  4. That's the quite sobering reality of buying new gear. Trading is often a better bet than selling in this situation.
  5. Can't remember the last time I used amps and cabs by the same manufacturer for any period of time (until recently, see below). Only two combinations that lasted were with Mesa M-Pulse head and powerhouse cabs, and Ampeg SVT-II and an SVT-15 cab. Otherwise I tended to find that most heads I liked sounded better through cabs made by other manufacturers. But having stopped gigging and doing the occasional pickup on electric and DB, I picked up a Euphonic Audio Doubler and Whizzy 12 and bloody hell, they are a million times better together than I thought would be the case. What I assumed would be a huge compromise for size and I/P options (two channels with mic and PUP inputs for DB plus phantom power) has turned out to be a very good buy for tone. Assumed it would be good for DB, had no idea it would be so damn good for electric. Punches like a heavyweight, moves around like a flyweight 👍
  6. You're not really giving it a great sell mate. This is one great amp. Tone wise it's to all intents a powerful B-15, whilst doing a lot of what an SVT can do without the back-breaking weight. To put it in context, with the right cab and EQ this will give a Mesa BB750 a run for its money, with IMO the edge on tone. There's a thread on here about what amp to replace an SVT. THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. At £300 they're a bit of a hit, but I appear to have major GAS, and my current Lenzner guts are starting to feel their age?
  8. Damn, a truly wonderful guy, one of the few humans with whom I was able to communicate telepathically Beedster: Hey Martin....... MB1: You want me to reopen one of your For Sale threads don't you? Beedster: Thanks Martin He bought a rig from me a while back and there were complications involving, you guessed it, a courier, and we had a chat on the phone. What a bloody lovely guy, bloody lovely. Great sense of humour and a great attitude. Every time we PM'd since I could hear his voice and his accent as I read his words. Up there in the great gig (and even better gear forum) in the sky now mate. I'll raise a glass or two to you this evening, as will a lot of musicians in the UK and beyond who you touched with passion and humour. Sincere condolences to those you've left behind Chris
  9. Good for you mate, no view on the basses, but shout if ww can help. DB is of course the monarch of instruments
  10. Thanks for the comment re my two FLs folks. To add to the above I much prefer a good wooden FL neck to graphite, but if you need to play FL with low and reliable action, the latter is a winner every time, especially if you're moving around a lot and temperature/humidity are issues. TF is a great instrument but the retail price is ludicrous, you can build a bass of equal quality using off the shelf or custom components from the likes of Warmoth for far less money, the only downside being the resale value is rarely as high.
  11. Lovely, thanks, dare I ask how much you paid? Perhaps PM me if you'd prefer?
