  1. PRICE DROP to £85 each posted, over £160 the pair
  2. Nearly new Markbass bag for the STU, Evo 1, SA450, SD800, TA501 etc. Does NOT fit Little Mark series. £30 posted.
  3. I bought this a couple of months ago and have been very pleased with it. As I was new to soldering I didn't want to drop a lot of money on one that I will only use occasionally, but I've been impressed with it so far.
  4. I love the Litte Marcus range of heads from Markbass. The EQ points are bang on. Only selling as I really don't need three amps! Pretty much mint/very good condition. Comes with custom Bright Onions footswitch to switch between EQ channels (£50). Price is posted in the UK, in the original box. EQ1 ULTRALOW: Level ±16 dB (Freq. 65Hz) LOW: Level ±16 dB (Freq. 180Hz) MID: Level ±16 dB (Freq. 500 Hz) HIGH MID: Level ±16 dB (Freq. 1.4 KHz) HIGH: Level ±16 dB (Freq. 3.8 KHz) EQ2 OLD SCHOOL: Variable LOW PASS From 20KHz to 200Hz MILLERIZER: 5-12 KHz BAND PASS Filter (Level 0 /+10 dB) OUTPUT POWER: 250W RMS @ 4 ohms / 150W RMS @ 8 ohms £240 posted.
  5. PRICE UPDATE: £180 collected / £190 posted Only recently picked this up, but I don't need as many cabs as I have right now. Height: 360mm (14.1") Width: 390mm (15.3") Depth: 360mm (14.1") Weight: 10.7KG (23.5lbs) Power: 150w Impedance: 8 Ohms Cab is in very good condition. Comes with brand new Hot Covers padded sleeve. These are £249 new at Andertons, so I think £180 collected £190 posted is a pretty good deal given.
  6. This is very good. Even if you don't like Level (which I do), you can appreciate the level (ahem) of musicianship on display. Not sure about the drummer's strides though
  7. I absolutely love this amp, but GAS is a terrible thing..... This has to be one of the most versatile heads out there. Two channels, which you can use independently (i.e. a bass in each channel) or combined (i.e. clean and dirty). Twelve different amp models to choose from - six on each channel 500 watts at 4 ohms, 300 watts at 8 ohms Choice of fx from Compressor, Chrous, Octaver, Reverb, Envelope Filter or Delay - one on each channel. Amp choices and effects can be changed via MIDI The footswitch allows you to engage CH1 or CH2 or MIX both, turn FX1, FX2 and BOOST on and off, accessthe TUNER with MUTE function pressing and holding the boost switch. Built in tuner Dedicated headphone out and aux in for silent rehearsal Separate FX for each channel I've added yellow dots to make it easier to see how each channel is set, but these will rub off easily enough if you don't like them. Sale includes the footswitch and carry bag. I am firm of £500 posted in the UK.
  8. My band is learning "It's my life" by Talk Talk, so I've re-learnt it some 36 years after I originally learned to play it :)

      Superb line.  Love that Ray tone!

      Am learning this one at the moment, have played it before but am learning it "properly" now and its amazing how much ive been playing wrong, when learning a song the mind has a tendency to fill in the blanks with the most conventionally pleasing notes but when you go to actually learn something properly you find that the original bassist does things like dropping a note a semitone where you wouldn't expect it to create a bit of discord.

      Top tune and great bass playing

  9. Rugged EQ/Boost and Overdrive pedals from Markbass. The Booster is new, the Distorsore is used but in excellent condition. I will throw in a Warwick PU and daisy chain. £180 posted for the two, or £95 each. Thanks for looking.
  10. These are most excellent little units. I popped one into my fretless after telling John what sort of tone I was after, and he recommended different capacitors from the standard set. He absolutely nailed it. I love the "straight through" tone, but the capacitors take off just the right amount of top to just give me lovely fretless warmth, but still with clarity and never getting into mud. Great stuff, and higly recommended.
  11. Just bought one of John's new tone switch kits. I told him what sort of sound I was after for my fretless and sent him a photo of the wiring: he suggested slightly different caps from usual and sorted me out a custom wiring diagram too. He's a Basschat legend.
  12. I love my new Ashdown Tonepocket, but I've noticed tonight that there's an earthing issue if I use it when it's plugged in and charging. If I touch the metal knobs or the bridge on my bass I can hear the classic buzz, but if I use it unplugged for the PSU so it's just running on the battery it's whisper quiet. Anyone got any ideas what's up? Dodgy PSU?
  13. Really? You must play in some loud bands!
  14. Just fitted a brand new white nylon B string that came in another set this morning. Straight swap over and it is perfect.
  15. Fretless Precision. You can see it at 29:34 here
  16. Thanks for these comments guys. I have used these strings on the bass for four years, so my action and playing style is perfectly adjusted to them. The bass is a through body, so I never twist the string around the tuning post when tuning up; just bend it into the tuner and then wind without any wrapping around the tuner by hand. You can hear it through the amp. It doesn't sound quite the same as it does acoustically, but it certainly doesn't sound right.
