      "unexpected"? Did you fall into the shop, and your credit card accidentally slip into the card reader? ;)
      Happy NAD - don't forget to let us know your thoughts on how it performs :)

  2. The original Orange Terror Bass 500 in excellent cosmetic and functional condition. Puts out 500w into both 4ohms or 8ohms unlike the recent reissue Comes loaded with 2 x JJ ECC83's and 1 x spare ECC81 for people who want the lower gain 'mod'. Also comes with an attenuator for the DI (ive never used the DI but it came with the amp) and finally the Orange carry bag that these things come with. Pics to follow asap. Collection from Bolton ideally or if no local interest could discuss postage within UK. Also selling the matching Orange 1x15 cab on here. Could do a deal for the pair.
  3. £280 for a quick sale? Would consider part-ex/trade for an Ampeg 410HE
  4. Bought literally weeks ago but my new band are of the right level that I can use my Ampeg B15 I have added a set of Palmer castors to aid in moving around and also bought an official Orange padded cover. In great condition, bright Orange and marries with my OBT 500 MkI head perfectly (that will also be going up for sale soon - can do a deal for both) Looking for £300 for the cab which will need to be collected from Bolton or can deliver within reasonable distance. Pics to follow asap
  5. A pair of the Spiral filament, long plate Sovtek 12AX7 LPS. Bought from Hotrox during my recent valve rolling phase on my Ashdown. Will be well packed and the £25 price includes postage within UK. Pics to follow if needed
  6. Picato Half Rounds - 45-100. £20 Fitted to my P bass but only the E string was cut (plenty of winds however) and played for 5mins max. A little too much on the roundwound side of things for me, im used to the full on thump of dead flats Elites Flatwounds - 45-105. £15 Fitted to my P bass with plenty of winds. These are my favourite flats in the world but latest project requires something more zingy. Nice bite to them but still massively thumpy at the same time. These have had several hours use and are lovely and warm. Definitely on the old school side of the spectrum these so don’t expect Fender/Chromes twangy sustain - proper flats! Elites Flatwounds - 45-105. £15 As above but not as old and also fitted to a Jack Casady bass so 2+2 headstock rather than 4-in-row. Bit zinger than my P bass ones Status Hotwire Flats - 45-105. £10 These are medium scale but fit my standard p bass no problems with around half an inch clearance of the nut before the silk starts. Quite lively for such smooth flats and plenty ringy. These have had around 2hrs use and are still new sounding with plenty of scope to mellow out. These have been fitted but never cut All prices include postage and packaging within the UK. Collection from Bolton also welcome
  7. all on hold bar the 2+2 Elites
  8. Ashdown 550 Touring Spyder 2x10 combo. A proper old school sounding combo with plenty of volume and beef! From what ashdown say the preamp is taken from their Big Block valve amp (a 2 x 12AX7 jobby) with the power stage being the tour proven ABM solid state unit. I married the combo up with the Catalinbread pedal im also selling and with my flats loaded P it honestly was the closest sound ive had to my old all valve rigs. Couple of tolex nicks but nothing major. I replaced the stock chinese 12AX7's with JJ's and added some nice heavy duty castors to the amp. This is one of the original UK made units before production was shifted to China. Collection only on this one im afraid but could deliver within reasonable distance. The combo is currently at our rehearsal space in Chorley but I can bring it back to Bolton with me this week. £225 ONO. Only trade I would consider would be an Orange OCB115 in orange tolex Thanks for looking.
  9. Strange request here but do any OBC115 owners know if the detachable grill is perfectly square? The reason I ask is id like to use one port side down but with the logo the right way (I know, I know). Was hoping that is the grill is perfectly square I could just pop it of and spin it 45 degrees and reattach it when if flipped the cab.
  10. Excellent pedal to cop that SVT type sound. I used it as an always on type effect to make my Ashdown combo sound like an SVT on the edge. Really responds to dynamics of your playing and gives the feel of a valve amp. Have removed feet and applied Velcro but other than that it is in great condition £100 collected from Bolton or can post for £5

      not a BF fan im afraid, tho have never tried their 2x10

      Totally, TOTALLY different from the 12" cabs. Sounds like a miniature Ampeg fridge. Haven't played a Terror with mine, but knowing the Terror as I do (I've had 3 of them!), and knowing how the Two10 sounds with the other amps I've had (Ashdown ABM, CTM15 & 30, Mesa Walkabout, Ampeg PF-50t) I'd say it'd be a match made in heaven! Certainly worth trying if you get the chance.

      I have an orange 115 doing nothing, its in black and has never been gigged mint condition, am only in blackburn if you want to try it out

    Another here who has tried pretty much every flatwound out there on my tonal quest, much lighter bank balance later I settled on Elites Detroit Flats. Perfect tension, great mix of old school thump with a little bit more going on in the mids without being Chromes/Fender roundwound like tone. Perfect for me
  14. I have a set of Optima Chrome flats in 100-45 gauge. I have cut and strung the E string only onto a P bass and played it for 30 seconds before realising these werent for me - a bit TOO low tension and old school sounding. The G, D and A are all completely unused and in packs. Theses are basically Pyramid Gold Flats to me!, Very oldschool and lower tension. £25 to your UK door

    What Strings Are Doing it For You?

    After spending fortunes trying pretty much every flatwound out there I FINALLY settled on the bass centre elites. Current set are 6mths in and sound better everyday
