  1. Oh no.....I had my Lakland DJ5 set up properly, and now I don't want to sell it!! 😅

      Then don't. I just sold mine, and now I'm wondering if I should have! 😳

      Sellers remorse - a cruel mistress.

      "Regrets...I've had a few..."

  2. Really missing my old Lakland 55-01 today. I'm very lucky to have some incredibly basses, including another great 55-01......but I would have the original back in a flash!

      @Sibob - the best you can hope for is a first refusal should he ever have a change of heart.

      I love it!  Played a gig last week with it for the first time.  I reduce the Gain to 2.0 or so for minimum breakup, I correct the lower volume then with a simple gain block after it.  Such sweet saturation!

      I keep toying with the idea of getting rid of mine, then play it and immediately decide against it!

  6. Eeeep, my 'lockdown parts bass' is coming back from setup on Sunday :D
    Much excite

  7. Hipshot Ultralites arrived! Now just waiting on La Bella Black Tapewounds and the project bass will be ready for final assembly 🤗

  8. Camel Journey Precision & Lakland DJ5 in the house, busy week lol. Promise I’m done for at least 6 months now 😆

      Presumably there's a second camel carrying the battery-powered combo for the Precision?

       

  9. Excited, new neck arriving today for project bass. Need to decide on replacement pickup (Precision) and tuners (I think Hipshot Ultralites....Lollipops of course)

      Ooooh tell us more @Sibob tell us more, tell us more ;) 

  10. Missed out on an Ibanez Blazer bass on Facebook last night....and now searching around for another (I want another P style bass for tape-wounds)....someone convince me I shouldn't? lol

    1. SpondonBassed

      SpondonBassed

      Do they do a double-breasted version of the Ibanez Blazer?

    2. hiram.k.hackenbacker

      You want a bunch of GAS loaded Basschatters to advise you not to buy something you want? Good luck 😂

      @Quatschmacher Ah awesome, I saw that posted on Instagram by one of the staff there, thought it was a great spec! Great job!

      Cool, I’m not on Instagram so didn’t see it. I was hoping heys post on Facebook.

      Can you send the link to the post - I can’t find it.

      Sorry to hear that @Sibob , hopefully they have come across this before with the courier and can sort it out. Best of luck!

    3. Sibob

      Sibob

      Yeah, I imagine Moollon will be right on it!

    4. Sibob

      Sibob

      Looks like it’s all sorted and sending back out to me on Monday. Moollon contact is great, replying to put my mind at rest on a Saturday!

  14. Lockdown has me enquiring about a Limelight. DOH

    1. discreet

      discreet

      Any excuse is a good excuse for a Limelight. :biggrin:

    2. Sibob

      Sibob

      It’s either that or an original 70’s variant of this colour scheme...which isn’t going to happen lol

  15. What do Limelight Precision’s tend to come in at new nowadays?

    1. SpondonBassed

      SpondonBassed

      Roughly waist level?

    2. ead

      ead

      My only frame of reference is a J bass from 2018 that was just over £1,100.  Had a maple blocked and bound neck that would have added a few £s to the price I guess.

      You can get a Squier upgraded with a fake Fender logo on it for a couple of hundred quid.

  16. Does anyone here own an Elrick NJS 5 in Walnut Brown?

  17. Cioks DC5 on the way to power my new 'mini' board. 12v Trickfish Minnow and 4 other 1590a 9v effects, all on a PT Nano, very cool :) 

    1. TJ Spicer

      TJ Spicer

      Sounds awesome! I also use a PT Nano and Cioks for my fly board - best PSU I've used to date - supreme stuff! Enjoy!

      I've got a DC-8 under my Pedaltrain.

      Slightly annoying the connectors they use, but I think the choice may be because it allows them to make the case smaller.

  18. NAMM has been good to me, Trickfish Minnow and 2 new LK straps.......looking at an amp today :D

      I'll see your two P's and raise you one Tony Franklin Fretless and one SR5.

      My wife is going to murder me...

      I do have an even number OCD thing. I can't relax with music volume or car heating set to an odd number etc.

      Basses? I'm about to hit 5. Thanks for reminding me.....

  21. Lakland 44-64 sold, sad to see it go. But Moollon P incoming in April and my eye on a Precision 5...which should hopefully be with me by mid-December :D

    1. Marc S

      Marc S

      ooo, looking forward to seeing your Moolon P
      But if you're getting a new Moolon P... why do you want another P?
      .......said the man with 4 x P basses! lol

    2. Sibob

      Sibob

      Because more Precisions is good Precisions 😂

  22. Bass deposit paid......horrah :D

      @Quatschmacher Direct with them, i’m pretty sure they can do that :).

      I think I actually saw a US Lakland with that setup on Reverb. Will drop you a message if I can find it 

    3. Quatschmacher

      Quatschmacher

      Thanks. I'm checking out the Lakland PJ from here tomorrow. Where did you order your Moollon?

    4. Sibob

      Sibob

      @Quatschmacher Ordered the Moollon directly with them :)

  23. Uh-oh, sent an email about a bass! 🙈

      Then it must be a Lakland, surely? 🧐

    4. Sibob

      Sibob

      @CameronJ Similar......although currently a minor procedural stumble at the deposit stage

  24. 1590a Bass Overdrive with relay bypass in the house....they said it couldn't be done, Schu-Tone Pedals have done it!

    1. Daz39

      Daz39

      Dim question - what's the difference with a relay bypass over the standard type?

    2. Sibob

      Sibob

      @Daz39 The type of switch really. Most standard ‘true bypass’ pedals use a 3PDT mechanical footswitch, hence them being quite clunky and relatively heavy to operate. When utilising a relay bypass, the actual on/off happens within the relay, so you can use a soft-footswitch to simply send a signal telling the relay to switch the effect on/off, it’s not reliant on a mechanical action from the footswitch.

      Ultimately their are pros/cons to both, and different people have different preferences, but for the particular situation I’m in, softswitch is the way to go :)

  25. Popped a TC Spark Mini on my board so I can switch between a couple of basses with very different outputs without changing pedal settings. Perfect, super quiet, super transparent, sorted! :)

      Spotted one of these on a Cash Converters recently, didn't realise what it did at the time. Sounds really useful in your situation!

      I bought a Bigshot 1/0 for similar purpose. Has tuner out too which is nice. Input 2 has a volume control I plan to use fretless on some tunes but not all so makes changing quick and slick

    3. Jean-Luc Pickguard

      Jean-Luc Pickguard

      I have a TC spark mini for bits where the bass needs to be the loudest thing in the room. Great little pedal!
