  1. Yeah my mistake- that I couldn’t seem to correct
  2. Dingwall Super P5 . Brand new - literally as it left the factory . Got this from Bass Direct a few months ago - after a wait of over a year . Been out of it's case around a dozen times at the most . Probably one the best basses that I've ever played - just makes sense when you play it , and feels so 'right' . Come to the conclusion (yet again) that I'm not a passive P player , though I bought it to try and convert myself . But even though it's the best P I've ever played , I have to accept that it may not see much use . Weight on scales is 8.5 lbs - and strapped on feels super light . Cost me close to 3K . Prices have recently gone up , and can't find the latest new price for one of these , but Bass Direct have the 4 string version now up for 3.5K . The maple FB which mine has , is an extra cost now . So get a brand new bass for a grand less , and no 12-18 month wait time . I don't do any online banking unfortunately , so cash only - sorry . Though this is the way I've done all my big private buys and sells over the last few years . Happy to meet up half way - up to 3 to 4 hours . Not much interested in trades , as I've seen a Modulus wide string 5 , that's more my liking . Apologies for the pictures on my old phone . Thanks for looking . Paul Put the wrong price on the top , and won't allow me to edit it - doesn't come up as one of the options . Price is £2400
  3. Issues can also occur with ‘pro’ players. Used to play every year at a rally, and my mate did the PA for first few years. He and I had bought matching Eden rigs from the old Wapping Bass Centre years earlier, and he had his set up as a loaner for the weekend. They’d booked a famous Bass Player one year, who had a ‘pub band’ set up, when he wasn’t being famous. He proceeded to rock up, turn everything up full, and crack on. Nearly blew it up!! Also, hasn’t there been a few posts on here over the years, about Norman Watt Roy trashing other people’s Bass gear, and then just walking off? Cause he’s a “good ‘ol boy” ain’t he !
  4. The case/speaker maker Dixon (there's a thread on here somewhere I think) , does something similar . Though it looks more like a regular flight case - ie all silver etc . They are more expensive though . I've been looking at the possibility of the Enki when the gigs come back in , and I've also not been able to find anything that compares , but is cheaper either .
  5. I sold a spotless Status Jazz bass a couple of years ago for around £900. The best jazz bass I’d ever played, and the front pick up was a beast. Was my last stab at a jazz- hoping it’d change my mind on jazz basses. Just don’t do it for me unfortunately. They are stunning basses
  6. Another lovely bass Dave . I take it the B string is good on this
  7. Anyone noticed that they can't access Talkbass at the moment? Is it down?
  8. Front to back . 1st - master volume 2nd - piezo PU/magnet PU blend Then - Treble , Mid , Bass , as per normal . So the extra knob (which could be the bloke playing it) , is a pan , rather than a second volume .
  9. This would be perfect in a 4U rack with my big ‘ol Crest CA9, banging it out at a gig. But come up when I’m pretty much spent out this last year. Unaware if anyone uses these as a live pre- maybe a few over the pond? Haven’t got the funds at the moment, so a pointless reply from me really- he he. But a GLWTS, for one of the all time killer pre amps.
  10. Bought a last month , and just a few rubbish pictures - that are already up on the Musicman Porn page . Got a mate to do a set up , new strings , and it plays really really nicely .
  11. Crest CA9 does grunt in spades . I bought one a few years ago . Used to be in charge of band's PA over the years , so had lots of brands - from big 'ol iron heavyweight jobbies , to various switch mode ones . I bought it on a whim , really expecting all the hype was rubbish , scratch the itch , and move it on . It's a beast . Never a better time to buy a heavy power amp that really does the business , if you don't mind the weight - good bargains to be had .
  12. I might be wrong , but I think Marillion ask people to send them say £15 or the like , this pays to record the album , then they post it out to the person . I think that model , makes them a half decent living . Also , I know nothing about streaming , as not interested at all in it ; but has anyone actually refused to have their songs on Spotify or the like? Thus maybe forcing people to actually buy something?
  13. These are far better than the Ampeg ones , that they copied . Main thing being that you still get the lovely sound on the 'thru' , rather then just the clean . If I remembered this correctly . If I wasn't skint , I'd be all over this , as they hardly ever come up for sale .

    Vigier Porn!

    I much prefer the looks of the Passions like that , to the Arpeges overall. I'm spent out for a while , but whenever one came up for sale , always every time coincided with me just buying something else .
  15. I see summer festivals are being organised and booked - in case anyone's interested .
  16. Your Dad fretted my Musicman that had a Modulus Quantum fretless neck on it - my main bass since around '91/92 . The fret work was impeccable, and It's been gigged hard all that time , and only required a single little dress up in 30 years . He was the only one I contacted who was up for doing it - this was pre internet , and even Rob Green wasn't interested . My memory is sketchy after 30 years (I was around 22 at the time) , but I do remember a massive shed , with stacks of Goodfellow bodies and necks hanging up . He offered to make me one , but I was skint after borrowing the money for the MM/Modulus hybrid . He had some great stories about Goodfellow , Peter Green , Graham Gouldman , Heartwood guitars and I think even Nigel Ross Scott - who I think he gave a Heartwood to as a freebie , in lieu of TV exposure playing it . I only met him twice , and he was a proper gent .
  17. I'm not sure if this has been said before - it probably has , on here at some time or other . But is the Courier industry , the only industry , where you pay for a service , and then have to take out extra insurance at cost , in case they don't do the job that you've already paid them to do in the first place ?
  18. Just a note to add on to the pictures . I'd sold some gear , and was then saving up a bit more (as and when) , for either a 2nd hand Stingray Special , or an Old Smoothie , that I'd seen up - and was in contact with the seller . A Sterling wasn't particularly on my radar , but it was less than the Stingrays I was looking at , and it's got the piezo bridge ; which adds quite a bit sound wise . Added to the fact that Piezo Stingrays are quite rare , and a Sterling one , even more so . It'll be a nice contrast to my graphite necked Stingray . So in true BC style - I couldn't help myself . Proper skint now though .
  19. Picked this up a few weeks ago . Yet to clean and set up etc , as been busy . Excuse the rubbish photos
  20. They did a good version on Duran's Rio in North Korea though ....
  21. I used to years ago dep with a blues band as and when , and this leg motion was used all the time . Also arching of the head , for another turnaround to bring it to a finish . Deps , even function band ones are all about looking for cues - and picking up on them fast . Chuck Berry used to do the leg thing too I think .
