    Best Wood for bass guitar

    Have a look at GUS Guitars. Simon Farmer makes a cedar laminate body and neck with a carbon fibre exo-skeleton. If it's good enough for Prince then it should do for the rest of us

    Feedback for Painy

    Richard bought a bbom 5 string bridge from me. So easy and great communication. Great guy
  4. I bought this a couple of years ago (secondhand) and have never used it. It's been sitting on my pedal board collecting dust, so it's time to free up some space. They are over £250 plus postage new. Handmade in Germany Input switcher 3 x input gain, 3 x footswitch controls 2 outputs The Palmer TRINITY provides easy switching between guitars without unplugging and the associated noise. Three instruments can be connected, which are selected by footswitch and fed to the output. Each input has an adjustable booster providing up to 12dB gain (4:1), to balance instrument levels without changing the amp settings. In addition, the Trinity features a dedicated tuner output.

    Do you want to build a sno...bass?

    In a good way or not? Thankfully I'm GAS'ed out at the moment, so no desire to do anything (yet).

    Do you want to build a sno...bass?

    I'm not going to be any help at all because anything more than a string change and I take my basses to a luthier. It costs a fortune but I just can't trust myself to get it right without totally f'ing it up. If you manage it I might one day take the plunge and give it a go myself. I watch with interest to see how you get on
  8. I avoid anything with Fender or Squier on the headstock but I do like the look of these. I hadn't realised that they did them passive (my preference). I'm GAS free at the moment, but these will be on my radar (I like the fact that they are lightweight and not a P or J bass) when GAS strikes again (which it will probably sooner rather than later

    22-fret necks?

    I had a 22 fret neck made by Keisel/Carvin in the USA. It was cheaper than I could get made for me in the UK (even after import duty etc).
  10. Bought last year, fitted and then never used (except to tune the bass). I just don't use my double bass live, so rather than have £190.00 worth of pickup sitting here I think it should go to someone who might actually use it. Here's the blurb from the website: For Acoustic Upright Bass Does not require a pre-amp or other active, battery powered gear Produces a rich and powerful response that is acoustically true for both pizzicato and arco without adjusting controls The flexible element fits under the bridge foot picking up sound from both the bridge and top plate - Does not include 1/4" both ends cable Designed by Ned Steinberger in association with David Gage The Realist Upright Bass acoustic transducer was designed by Ned Steinberger in association with David Gage. A primary design goal was to create a transducer that would work equally well for pizzicato and arco through commonly used amplifiers, without requiring a pre-amp or other active, battery powered gear. A flexible element fits under the bridge foot so that it picks up sound from both the bridge and top plate. Produces a rich and powerful response that is acoustically true for both pizzicato and arco without adjusting controls. No preamp necessary. Easy installation. Just plug it in.
