    SOLD - Boss LS2 Line Selector

    On hold pending payment.
  2. This is in good condition, just a few tiny marks on the top edges. It's been a useful tool but I haven't done a doubling gig for some years now so time to pass this on. It covers a wide range of tasks and is much more than a A/B box - see the various Mode settings in the picture. It comes boxed and I'd like £55 posted within the EU. My feedback thread on here is: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/77960-feedback-for-ptb/?tab=comments#comment-750276
  3. This pedal is in very good condition and comes boxed with all the documentation. It lived on my pedal board for around 3 months but I found I preferred another one so time to let this find a new home. Looking for £75 including postage in the EU. You can find my feedback thread here: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/77960-feedback-for-ptb/?tab=comments#comment-750276
  4. Adding my thanks to the organisers too, a very enjoyable day out & good to catchup with bass friends, old and new. I enjoyed Richard Searle’s playing ‘cos his style is so completely different to mine and quite an eye opener. I also fell for both Rob Allen basses, the Mouse and the 5 string. Such a sweet tone and so responsive to your touch. I was very impressed with Obbm’s Handbox amp too. Roll on next year’s bash!

    Auditions in Hell

    I've enjoyed reading through these. I'll share one of mine with you. There was a singer, about 15 years older than the rest of us, who came to audition for our pub r'n'b band around 2001. He clearly couldn't pitch a note - he was as flat as a pancake - and by the end of verse 1, we were all rolling our eyes and trying hold back the sniggering. We moved into the chorus and at the end of it, he went for the final high note throwing his head forwards. With that, his teeth flew out across the room, hit the floor and slid under the drum kit. He looked aghast and shouted "Guitar solo!" and dived down between the kick drum and floor tom. Eventually, he shuffled backwards, stood up and held his false choppers up to the light. He blew the filth and fag ash off them and popped them back in. He was just about to sing the next verse when he realised we were all rolling around in hysterics........... A week later, he e-mailed us and asked for feedback on his efforts.

    Nick's Feedback

    Just bought some Lakland flats off nick. Good comms and a fine Basschatter.
  11. [quote name='chris_b' timestamp='1493245125' post='3286928'] Define "heavy" and actually no. . . . not all bases are heavy. Mine aren't and you don't need a heavy bass to get a good sound. You've highlighted the problem. Get a lighter bass. [/quote] I've just acquired a Marusczyk PJ5 with a chambered body and it feels so much lighter than my Sadowsky, I can play it for much longer before the aches & pains arrive. I agree with Chris B - try a lighter bass.

    The Original Bass Institute (1980's)

    Quote "I wonder did anyone else do Lawrence Canty's short course 'Reading For Bass Clef' at Goldsmith's College back in the early 90's?" I did it in '90 or '91. How I wish now I'd paid more attention & practiced! Still, another guy on the course made me a Les Paul shaped electric mandolin which my wife still has. That's unfortunately the most tangible benefit I got from it 🙁

    Feedback for Paul Clifton

    Paul bought a Jazz Bass off me in a very easy textbook deal. Deal with him in confidence!
  14. Thanks Mickey! Pre-weekend bump.
  15. I’m having a bit of a bass reshuffle right now so this one is up for sale as I have 2 other great Jazz Basses and this is just not getting used. It’s a Japanese Fender Jazz Bass, a CIJ “62 reissue in Daphne Blue. I bought it from Clarky on this very site in 2013. He told me that he’d checked the s/n and it dates from 1997-8. The bass is in very good condition for its age. There’s one blemish, a dent in the side of the bass that faces upwards when you’re playing the bass but my right arm always hid it from my view. There's a photo of this below. The bass weighs 9lbs 4oz using the “with and without” method on my bathroom scales. The bass is strung with D”Addario Chromes that have plenty of life in them. I’m looking for £600 plus shipping, if needed. Collection from Croydon or a near-by meet-up are welcome too
