    2nd hand market slowing??

    eBay always gives the best realised prices, but.......take out the listing fees, the selling charges and then the Paypal charges and you might be surprised at how little you actually get when the deal is finally finished. I think the simple fact is that most people are being cautious with money. If something seems cheap, it will sell almost immediately. Otherwise, you need to bide your time and be prepared to take less than you might expect.. .

    2nd hand market slowing??

    What I see, as a pretty sad reflection of the times, is people working flat out for not enough money, with outgoings going through the roof. Its not surprising market for non essentials is slow IMHO.

    Midlands bass (and guitar) bash 4/5/19

    I missed this years so will make a concerted effort to come next. The only thing that I have that anyone might be interested in having a play with is my 80s Mesa bits - D-180 and 1516. If anyone is interested i could bring, otherwise it would just be me and daughter(s).

    Who can I trust to fix my G&L?

    I'd happily recommend John Le Voi at Alford, which isn't too far from you. He did mine while I waited, but you do need to make an appointment.

    12" Cab Diary Continued

    I'd be interested in having a go at this project as well if you go ahead with the flat pack guys.
  8. My PF20t exchange unit arrived today. It is different in two respects. Hum has almost completely gone - its perfectly acceptable now, in fact barely audible. The amp overall is also noticeably louder. There was clearly a fault on the first one, though the character of the sound hasn't really changed. Big thumpy tones on tap. I still can't get much in the way of change in tone with the gain turned up though - no noticeable change in tone regardless of the level of gain, just makes it louder. Cab still MB 1516B - deafeningly loud now if you want it to be.

    Aria Pro II SB-600

    OK, Dad, but then it would make sense to pm me to let me know. I respectfully disagree by the way. Its also a bit odd as there were already several posts up already saying it wasn't an SB700.

    Aria Pro II SB-600

    I did post, and I got a notification saying that my post was being hidden pending approval by a moderator. Just seemed a bit odd. My comment on the bass by the way was that it definitely wasn't a SB700, as the SB700 is not only through neck, but also has a cutaway at the back of the neck that goes all the way round at the back to improve access to the upper frets.

    Aria Pro II SB-600

    Curious as to why my polite input to the discussion on this was moderated out. Mods?
  12. Mines back to Kenny's because of the hum. New unit on its way that is guaranteed not to hum, so fingers crossed. But it's plenty loud enough for anything i can ever imagine doing, thats for sure.

    Rok Sak 4U rack padded sleeve thing

    This came with an amp I bought, but doesn't really fit the amp as its a full length sleeve. With some mounting bolts and nuts. I really don't have time to parcel this up I'm afraid, so collection only, from near Horncastle in Lincolnshire. Its old, but looks decent quality, and is in pretty good nick.
  14. Not mine, but serious cabs for someone with space and a crane...... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mesa-boogie-Bass-cabinets-Diesel-4x10-and-1-x-18-USED/192614390266?_trkparms=aid%3D777003%26algo%3DDISCL.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20160608105753%26meid%3D28a69ae18a6a4c56ab6aba2e370e936f%26pid%3D100012%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D132796673309%26itm%3D192614390266&_trksid=p2047675.c100012.m1985

    New Old Bassist would Appreciate Advice...

    Welcome on board. Im old as well, and really only started when I was 60. For me, I found the structure of doing graded exams very helpful, so thats what I'm doing. For me, I need to find something that gives you external goals - like a band, or a performance or an exam.
