  1. Anybody bought from Rubadub in Glasgow?

    No but I have been considering using them. They have a very active social media presence with some great tuition videos. Billy Gibbons even popped in last time he was in Glasgow.
  2. Led Zep heartbreaker sound

    I always thought the bass was recorded through a Leslie cabinet.
  3. Heads-up: lefty Dingwalls on the way, end of 2018

    Nice. Time to start saving.
  4. FS: MTD Kingston KZ6 SOLD

    Great bargain. I have the LH version of this bass and love it.
  5. Leftie questions

    Gig bags are normally a generic shape to accommodate a wide range of bass shapes and sizes. I am left handed and have owned several types of gig bags which fitted my basses fine. Cases are a completely different matter of course. You should be able to get a good idea of the tone, neck shape and general playability from trying a right handed bass. It won't be perfect but should at least help narrow your search down.
  6. I have an MTD Kingston 6 string bass which has 18mm string spacing. I plan on changing the stock bridge for a Hipshot and wonder if there would be any problems in installing an A style bridge with 17mm spacing. I am guessing that it should not make much technical difference other than to playability. Does anyone have any experience of doing something similar and reducing string spacing? Thanks John
  7. Low tension roundwounds

    I've gone through the same process and tried lots of variations of string brand and type and found the DR Hi-Beams to be the lowest tension strings I could find. They also sound superb to me.
  8. Feedback for Al Krow

    Bas purchased my Vanderkley cabinet and his great communications and enthusiasm made the entire process a pleasure. He has great knowledge about bass and I really enjoyed our email exchanges.
  9. Bass Direct

    I have bought several items from Bass Direct over the years through their website. I love the fact that there is a shop specialising in the needs of bass players run by someone who is passionate about bass. I emailed them yesterday to discuss ordering a left handed 6 stringer and had an email conversation with Mark in the evening to identify my requirements. First thing this morning he had sourced one with the bonus it is in my preferred finish. This might not be a big deal for all you right handers but we leftys rarely have this sort of luck. I phoned Mark this morning to seal the deal and we had a great conversation about bass playing and the evolution of gear over the years. John
  10. Anyone found their perfect bass?

    Twenty nine years together. We have been through a few rough patches but are just as happy as the day we first met. [url="https://flic.kr/p/TZseLN"][/url][url="https://flic.kr/p/TZseLN"]IMG_2022[/url]
  11. Have a bump on me. I have seen the photos and the bass is in great condition. I only passed on purchasing due to some unexpected bills this month.
  12. Warm Fuzziness for Max Webster

    Saw them support Rush on the Hemispheres tour and thought they were superb.
  13. Hi, Now sold. Thanks for your interest. £525 including UK delivery. I am selling my Vanderkley 210MNT 8 Ohm version with the Vanderkley padded cover. I have only gigged 3 times with this since I bought it. I hardly gig these days and am planning to purchase the new Genzler combo to give me a small and light rig for the few occasions I do play. It has been my pride and joy and is in pristine condition. I live in Glasgow and demoing and collection in person are welcomed.

  14. Sounds interesting. Can you give a summary of the general condition?
