  1. Hi, glad you moved this on without asking for some outrageous price. Hope the next owner is as reasonable. Smiley face, Nigel

    Zoom L-12

    Just a plus one for the L12. Brilliant for live recording and mixing...I’ve recorded a five piece band, the whole gig using the L12 for FOH mix as well. No problems working with recording the whole gig. Easy transfer to a computer, although you have to go via a memory card. Also a great interface for home recording, you can eq and hear reverb on your signal going in, say a vocal, but it goes dry to the computer.
  3. Just sold my BB1100s to Dan. Great transaction, would recommend dealing with him.
  4. Another vote for Roxy and Elsewhere. Tom Fowler’s excellent bass playing still gets me after 40:years of listening. Curtis Live would be another, with Lucky Scott on bass.
  5. I’ve had some mics which picked up a regular pulsing noise from a hard drive? I remember cheap Behringer, and a couple of AKG mikes as culprits.
  6. Just bought a lined Fretless bass from Chris. Great transaction, and an absolute bargain! A pleasure to deal with Chris.
  7. Thanks sir. Very close, as these things go. Great colour also!
  8. Thanks. The pickups are hot as hell. . I have a jazz bitsa with them, and I have to be very careful playing through my Zoom B1 Four. Everything overloads! Live is, or was, fine, but switching basses would be a pain. Good luck with the playing. I have a double bass which I’d love to be playing with a band, but up here in northern Scotland there are few bands, especially just now. And zero places to play.....
  9. Any developments on this? I keep swithering about a fretless, and missed buying Stewblack's Revelation during lockdown. I hope the pickup problem will be sorted by a new loom? And the rest is just set up things. Please keep us informed!
  10. That’s an Underwood on the bridge btw. I messed around last night playing the magnetic pickup through a Zoom A3, using their double bass ‘modelling’. Sounded very usable.
  11. From the front, unchanged. On the second photo you can just make out the shiny discs on the back of the poles.
  12. I tried all the in and out variations, and found that beyond a certain point the poles rattled. With the extra magnets I don’t have to go to either extreme.
  13. Just picked up an old magnetic pickup from eBay, and attached it to my Zeller bass, out of interest, and some nostalgia for the Framus Triumph I had years ago. Anyway, the G string output was much louder than the others. Output overall quite low. Removing the G pole balanced things up. So I ordered a bunch of 7mm diameter neodymium magnets, 2mm thickness, and tried carefully adding them to the poles. Result, louder overall output, balance achieved with the G pole back in place. Happy. Guess what, it sounds like a fretless bass! I’ll superglue the magnets on eventually, once I’ve played it through an amp, although I’ve done this mainly to record with. Total cost £30.
