  1. I'll have to admit that I'm not up to speed on vintage gear , but at those prices , it almost makes Andy Baxter's place look like Cash Converters
  2. This looks quality . I'm thinking of going Pre-amp pedal into power amp for my rig . So is there any reason why this couldn't mix 3 Pre-amps if needed ? ie - Sansamp BDDI , Sansamp Q strip , and say another .
  3. This is another one on here that I can't believe is still here . If I shift my stuff , then I'll seriously consider this one . In the meantime - GLWTS
  4. I can't see why this wouldn't drive a power amp though , if the amp in question was 'open enough' on the inputs . I think Dood used to plug into a rack compressor , then into a power amp , and he reckoned that that worked really well .
  5. I think that Sting had his natural Jazz bass with a P neck - or so I was told . An option might be (if you like them) , to get a Status P neck , and screw it on . Surely not much more than a wooden neck?

    Bought a pedal off Nash - with my old fashioned payment method of cheque . He was perfectly OK with that , and a smooth deal all round . Thanks .

    Show us your rig!

    Thanks mate . The bass , I've had for around 27 yrs , and is a bit of a mix and match . Guy I bought it off , had a fretted and fretless , but the fretted sold . This green one was fretless , and had to find someone to fret it . I was told , that he took all the hardware off two stingrays , and sold the bodies and necks , then got Roger Giffin to make the bodies . Then paid £500 a pop for each Modulus Quantum graphite neck from the States , and then got Giffin to assemble them . I think it may be 35" . The back however is pretty beat up - finish wise . It is unique , and even though I've gone into double figures with the collection over the years , it's the only bass (bar around 4 or 5 gigs) , that I've gigged . Done everything from function stuff to rock . When you've got a keeper , I think you know . The tape is for , as you had - stop the pops . Just did it at the gig , as I'd raised the pickup to act as a sort of ramp , so I could play a bit softer , and it'd make the 3 fingered gallop easier - worked a treat

    Picture of tonight's gig (well technically last night's gig) . Anyone mention heft? He he .
  9. I love those larger Cali's - seem more control than the smaller ones (is this right?) . Shame they don't do them anymore - or even find anyone who has one up for sale
  10. What's the difference with a 1st Generation , to the subsequent one(s) - 2? 3?
  11. Always great when you get a 'keeper' back . I should've had that Modulus Jazz off of you when You had it up - another one , when I never had the funds at the time - nor did I when it was up for sale again with someone else . Always wondered who ended up with that . Persistence always pays off . Nice one mate
  12. Yep . I worked out the other day that I've sunk over a grand on pedals in the last 5 years . Apart from the tuner , 2 are always on (SFX Thumpinator and Micro EQ) , and one only one gets used for a Muse song (Prunes and Custard) . Still got them all - either sitting on the board , or at home in my wardrobe . I agree , it's obscene he he
  13. That's very light. I bet it's like you're hardly wearing it at all
  14. Nope , another company . It just has a similar feature set as the Noble - apart from the lack of pedal power . Also a fair bit cheaper too .
  15. Not strictly the same (ie no pedal power) , but this looks nice . http://www.n-audio.net/tube-preamp-di-box
  16. This in mental . As I said earlier ; if this was 19mm not 17mm spacing , I'd be gigging it already . Checked my main 2 basses last night just to be sure , and they're both 19-20mm (depending on what eye I have closed) . Saying that , I'm almost tempted by it , just to see it go - this is just crazy guys
  17. Someone's got a steal here . As previously said - a Sadowsky in all but name . I really ummed and ahhed about this - didn't need it , but wanted it he he
  18. I agree . I'm a real Modulus fan boy , but I think that the string spacings are too narrow for me on these Quantum 5's - I like 18-19 mm Killer bass , and killer deal
  19. I'm about half an hour north - near Brandon . Eden's will be too heavy ; but I've got a couple of Epifani 210's if you want to borrow one - I never use them
  20. An old mate from school's mum , once told me that she saw Hendrix play down the road from me - in Watton Norfolk . (true story) Perhaps when she goes , we can harvest her optic nerves , and flog them on Ebay
  21. I like that . What sort of LEDs were they - the strip ones?
