    Bass tutor suggestions (North Wales/North West England)

    I had a few lessons from Steve Amadeo, who is based on the Wirral. I found him to be an excellent teacher, and I'd look him up in a second if I found myself with the time again to get serious back into bass.

    Feedback for Audiokostas

    I sold my Nordstrand pickups to Kostas. As said by chrisd24, he is a lovely, passionate and appreciative Basschatter to deal with, and I had no hesitation shipping things across to him in Greece. I'd happily deal with him again, and hope to share a beer with him should I ever find myself in Athens

    Ashdown Strings

    Result What are the strings like? I didn't know Ashdown made strings and I'm after some new strings for my trusty Precision.

    [url="http://ashdownmusic.com/shop/product.php?id=2530"]These strings[/url]? I know they're a few quid more expensive, but it seems you can still purchase them.
  6. PM replied. It's a 9/18volt preamp, so while the unit would fit into a Jazz with no additional routing, you'd need to have a battery compartment added. This a what I had to do with my Precision Special.
  7. I bought this set here on Basschat just over 2 years ago for a PJ bitsa project that I never really got on with. The set consists of: [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Helvetica-Bold, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Nordstrand NP4[/font][/color][color=#000000] - Single coil 4 string precision-type bass pickups[/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#2B2B2B]This is a faithful reproduction of one of the most famous pickups in the world. It will give a very big and full tone with the slightly hollow grind that the originals are known for.[/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#000000][font=Helvetica-Bold, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Nordstrand NJ4SV[/font][/color][color=#000000] - Humbucking split coil 4 string jazz-type bass pickups[/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#2B2B2B]These are a split coil hum cancelling design. This pickup is designed to have a tone as close as possible to the NJ4 single coils. They have a similar clarity and bottom, and have a good clean growl with the same interactive quality that all our alnico pickups are known to have. They are also totally humcancelling, and great for commonly noisy live situations.[/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#2B2B2B][/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#2B2B2B][/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#2B2B2B]I'm looking for £100 for the pair plus £5 postage.[/color][/font][/color] [color=#584D4D][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][color=#2B2B2B]Cheers[/color][/font][/color]
  8. For sale is my Aguilar ODB-3 onboard pre-amp, configured as follows: - 1 stacked pot for volume / balance; - 1 stacked pot for bass / treble; - 1 mid pot with push-pull frequency switcher Bass: [color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]+/-18dB of cut and boost at 40Hz[/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Treble: [/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]+/- 16dB of treble cut and boost at 6.5 kHz[/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Mid: [/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]+/- 16dB of cut and boost at either 400Hz or 800Hz[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] [/font][/color] [font="Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"][color="#000000"]​I had this professionally installed by the lovely guys at KGB for a PJ bitsa project that I never really got happy with. The tonal power of this thing is incredible, all in a neat and tidy 3-pot package.[/color][/font] [color=#000000][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Price is £100 + £5 postage to UK only.[/font][/color]
  9. Back to the top. Had some enquirers about trade options, unfortunately the list is very limited: - Dingwall 5 string - MusicMan 5 string Thanks
  10. For sale is the body to a bitsa bass that I built but never really got on with. A fair amount of investment has been made in this body, so I'm asking for [s]£400[/s] [b]£350[/b] plus shipping. The body is from an old Squier Precision Special that has had the original paint stripped off to leave quite a nice natural wood finish. The pickups are a Nordstrand PJ set, I think it is the set with the split hum bucking J pickup but couldn't say for sure. The pre-amp is an Aguilar OBP3 with the following controls:[list] [*]Stack Vol/Vol [*]Stack Treble/Bass boost/cut [*]Mid boost/cut with push/pull frequency (400/800Hz) [/list] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][size=4][b]Bass control:[/b] plus/minus 18 dB @ 40 Hz.[/size][/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][size=4][b]Mid control:[/b] plus/minus 16 dB @ 400Hz or 800 Hz. User selectable frequency center.[/size][/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][size=4][b]Treble control:[/b] plus/minus 16 dB @ 6.5 KHz.[/size][/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][size=4]The pre-amps, pickups and a 9v battery box were all installed by the great people at KGB Music in Birkenhead. [/size][/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][size=4]Given my limited ability with electrics, I'm not prepared to split this up and sell the pre-amp/body/PuPs separately. [/size][/size][/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2][/size][/font][/color]
  11. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1445245819' post='2889812'] Come on, that's why you watch it in the first place. [/quote] Not only that, but I watch it over, and over, and over again on iPlayer too!
