  2. [quote name='Bassmurf' timestamp='1359884002' post='1961434'] Have a look at this video (apologies if it's been posted before!) [url="http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=blkrjAa4kvI"]http://m.youtube.com...h?v=blkrjAa4kvI[/url] [/quote] Yes that is the sound I'm after, she is a good player too that pretty lady... Thanks.
  3. Hi folks Just picked this up in a trade with "Harry / Hazbeen" and I am happy to report I am a Spector and 35" scale convert. I am only putting it up to fund another Spector 5 which I have my eye on which has my ideal pick-up configuration. If that bass gets sold I will be withdrawing this as it is just a great bass. Harry valued this at £1225 so that's what I'm asking for it. Here is a link to his for sale thread: [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/195005-fsft-usa-spector-nsjh-5-traded-pls-remove/page__pid__1937121#entry1937121"]http://basschat.co.u...21#entry1937121[/url] Pics: Thanks for looking TK
  4. [quote name='HazBeen' timestamp='1359756486' post='1960073'] Nice bass Tom [/quote] [quote name='Bassmurf' timestamp='1359823450' post='1960809'] Yep, I agree! [/quote] Thanks chaps I really can't get over how good a 5 string this is.. It really does bury everything else i've tried before.... the feel is just perfectly comfortable for me... trouble is I now really have GAS for this: [url="http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Spector_Rebop_M5_files/M5Front590.jpg"]http://www.bassdirec.../M5Front590.jpg[/url] I think this maybe my perfect bass...[u] IF[/u] it feels and plays the same and with that Stingray sound... what do you guys think? Can't have both, do I sell the current one and go for it or are these US ones quite a bit superior in your experiences??... Damn the GAS....
  5. I'm a newbie to the world of Spectors and I have to say I'm very impressed!! Here's mine a US 5er: [IMG]http://i959.photobucket.com/albums/ae79/vortexholsteins/Newbabyetc142_zps5b8404f6.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i959.photobucket.com/albums/ae79/vortexholsteins/Newbabyetc143_zpsd8076330.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i959.photobucket.com/albums/ae79/vortexholsteins/Newbabyetc145_zps2e9f2753.jpg[/IMG]

  7. John Frusciante, the perfect guitarist for bass players I think.
  8. DHL are really good for transatlantic stuff in my experience. £100 is a good price though I reckon.
  9. Hi there folks. I picked up one of these before Christmas and although a great pedal I think it is just too complicated for me to get the best out of really. Fiddled around and found I was happiest when I had made it sound pretty much identical to my Proton... Absolutely mint condition, boxed and bagged. Only played for a couple of hours if that. You can find all the info and current pricing etc... here: [url="http://www.sonuus.com/products_wahoo.html"]http://www.sonuus.co...ucts_wahoo.html[/url] I would be happy to trade it with some cash my way for a Diamond Bass Compressor BCP-1 or for[s] £190 [/s] £180 delivered to you door. ...+ would also trade for a half decent drum machine with a little cash either way as required. Will endeavor to get some pictures up this evening. Thanks for looking
  10. [quote name='Porkpie' timestamp='1359402576' post='1954289'] I'll give you first dibs if I ever decide to move it on Tom, would you be so good as to do the same with that big block 750!? Loved the sound from it. Cheers mate, Neil [/quote] Thanks Neil + Course mate will do (Is a very, very unlikely occurance though I have to say.... )
  11. Oh man... I can't tell you how much I want this back...... Just sold my Fenderbird today too..... Sadly I would be hung drawn and quartered by MrsK if I did buy it back.. Seriously good bass at a seriously good price people... help yourselves..
  12. More good feedback for "Porkpie" AKA Neil. Neil purchased my (well now his!) Cataldo Fenderbird. He was even patient enough to wait while I soldered some bad wiring on it... Paid in cold hard cash too, no messing, top man. Trade with confidence.
  13. [quote name='Mr. Foxen' timestamp='1359130885' post='1950420'] I thought that when I got mine. But then I got two. [/quote] Balls!!...... I hadn't considered this....
  14. Just completed a trade/swap deal with Harry (fender jazz 62 for his Spector 5) and I cannot recommend the guy highly enough. He is a true Basschat sort. Friendly, patient, honest, great communications and the best packager of a bass I have ever known!! + A great advert for cross border trading too!! Will keep in touch too as during the discussions for the trade both of our other halves gave birth to baby boys, just 4 minutes apart.... spooky or what!? Deal with 100% confidence.
  15. I have a BF Super 15 and I no longer have Cab GAS. 100% cured (no really, it is!) Sounds perfect, very loud, looks good and I can carry it, what can be improved??
  16. [quote name='Jack' timestamp='1358424474' post='1938803'] Or an Ibanez ATK, or one of those Sandbergs, or a SUB. [/quote] +1 on the ATK or SUBs The Sandbergs (PMs and JMs at least) just don't get near enough to that Stingray sound IMHO. Don't know for why...Pre-amp or PU placement maybe... but if you play both one after the other you will notice a big difference. In short to the OP... Get a Stingray They are easy to tone down with playing dynamics/position/EQ ect..
  17. [quote name='MB1' timestamp='1355846919' post='1903595'] ='spinynorman' What is that meter thing he's holding? Wind speed? MB1. Bullshit Detector. [/quote] Brilliant!!
