  1. I'm unlikey to need this but I wanted to say thanks for taking the time and care in putting this together.
  2. Bought from here recently because I thought my Swollen Pickle clone was faulty. Tracked the fault to somewhere else so I'm using that now. Really decent sounding Muff, specifically for bass as the name suggests. Sounded great and sat really well in the mix on the couple of gigs I got to use it on. Can add dry signal when toggle is down or bass boost when up. Preferred it right in the middle myself. Original box and manual, velcro on bottom. Condition is good, with only a few marks to the top paintwork. £44 delivered or a bit less if you are local and collect it. Obviously, precations would be needed in the current climate.
  3. Tracked the issue down to a fault patch cable which worked intermittently. So I'm keeping it; sounds wicked.
  4. The 3 Leaf Doom 2 is a strong contender, because it's a fuzz first with a 'flavour' of synth. Thanks, I'll check it out. Emma Octo Nojs is a fuzz with a Octave, which I have already. Nice that they're combined but have that already. Had a Mooer Sweeper but it's a filter first with a bit of fuzz that can be thrown in. Opposite of what I need really. Had one, it was nice but not my thing (incidentally, traded it to Al Krow).
  5. Yeah, had a clone of that for a while. Shouldn't have gotten rid of it, got next to nothing for it....
  6. Looks like it's the Red Ripper over the Mastatron. Heard a few demos of the Prunes & Custard but feel it goes too far into envelop filter territory; too much tweakability. I just want one knob/switch that effects that, so looks like it's the RR over the P&C as well.
  7. What I want is a fuzz like a big muff (which I have) but with the ability to dial in some kind of filter so it sounds almost synthy. I’ve tried separate envelope/auto wah and they sound great with the fuzz but really not fussed with them on their own. I want the filter to end with the fuzz, not turn off an extra pedal. plus it’s more board real estate. what fuzzes have this built in, is the Tech 21 red ripper my only option? i sometimes use an octave with fuzz and that works too but I also use it on its own, so don’t mind it being separate.
  8. Bought this superb bass off of @paul s a little while ago. It's genuinely fantastic bass, ridiculously fun and easy to play. However, I've financially overstretched myself and at 3.5kg it's only a tiny bit lighter than my current full scale bass, so won't replace it. Local pickup from East Herts or meet between there and West Herts. Either that or meet up somewhere in Essex at a weekend. You can arrange your own courier, I will package accordingly. Hope Paul doesn't mind me re-using his ad and photos:
  9. Recently bought off here, complete with box and manuals. £65 delivered. Here's the blurb off the EBS site: THE EBS BASSIQ IS AN ANALOG ENVELOPE FILTER PEDAL THAT IS TRIGGERED BY THE NOTES YOU PLAY. THE RESULTS ARE THE FUNKIEST AND MOST RESPONSIVE SOUNDS IN A STOMP BOX. Auto-Wah or Funkadelic Sounds.The pedal achieves sounds ranging from the classic auto-wah to your own unique space-bass or ”Funkadelic” sound. It features controls for threshold and attack, and runs in three different modes, Hi-Q, Up and Down. The BassIQ with the unique Down mode set can be used along with an EBS OctaBass to achieve a synth-bass sound. Evolution. The BassIQ was first introduced at the millenium shift. From the 2008 edition improvements added 3 dB higher headroom, higher sensitivity (makes it easier to dial-in) and new analog circuitry with higher dynamics and lower noise, as well as true bypass switching technique. More than meets the eye. There are several trim pots inside the BassIQ. Such as High-pass filter mix-in, Gain trimmer and Dynamic high-pass filter mix-in.
  10. Bit of an odd one this. Bought it off here not long ago and it worked when I tried it at home (briefly) with a power supply. Even wrote out some snazzy and very classy labels for the controls. When I got it on my board (swapping it out for another pedal, so all cables are working) the volume drops and then cuts out, whether bypassed or not. Comes back then goes again. I had a look inside but as one of the knobs was stuck on, I broke the pot getting the board out. Replaced that with another one direct from Fuzzdog. Can't see anything obviously disconnected and that's about the limit of my electrical knowledge. Those of you with more ability and knowledge might be able to do something with it. So here it is for £15 delivered (firm) to get some of my money back. Could probably salvage the enclosure and knobs at the very least. Don't have a screwdriver with me but will take a photo of the inside when I can.
  11. Sold me his very lovely squier VM mustang. Bags of fun to play. Super easy to deal with and communicative throughout.
  12. Just bought these of Nord1. Hope he doesn't mind me using pics from his advert. Needs have changed and now need the short scale version. Sell for price I bought them for or trade for short scale flats, similar guage.
  13. Bought not so long ago for the envelope filter but can't find a setting that I like. However, the synth sounds are killer and octave is pretty good too, would keep it just for the latter if I didn't already have an EBS one. Full disclosure, the the foot switch can be a bit stubborn but It's just it's way of getting you to be assertive. With that in mind, it's a firm £45 delivered second class recorded or £40 collection. Would trade for a dedicated envelope filter or some kind of muff dirt-box thing.
  14. Bought my Yamaha Motion B MB-40 medium scale bass. Paid immediately and was communicative throughout. Totally straightforward deal and absolutely no messing about, just as it should be. Highly recommended.
  15. The Tascam that the OP has can both slow things down and alter the pitch. Very handy! As is the loop function that I mentioned in my earlier post.
  16. There are no dumb questions, just dumb g**tarists. I have the Tascam GB10 as well. It's a fantastic device and the only downside is that it doesn't have an aux in, so you have to use MP3s, rather than plugging in an external source. The pay-off is that it can both loop sections and slow things down, which helps with keeping up with tabs. I use mine with headphones, as it's much clearer than putting it though an amp and easier to pick out the different parts.
  17. Entertaining and informative advert.
  18. My board came with one but I have a hard case for it, so it’s as new. CORRECTION: there's a tiny mark on the side. Would probably wipe off. £20 delivered FIRM
  19. Bought this recently from Japan, as it's very lightweight (a hair under 3Kgs) and medium scale. You don't see these very often over here. Late 90's and I think some of the first Yammies made outside of Japan. This one is made in Taiwan. Quality is good, as you'd expect from Yamaha. Lovely natural body (alder or basswood) and satin neck. Headstock has a nice dark wood veneer. A bit of buckle rash on the back, finger marks above pickups and a few marks Pickups I think are the original ceramic and absolutely thunderous. Controls are volume, blend and tone. All passive electronics. Standard BBoT bridge and 38mm nut width. Nice and comfortable to play. Neck feels like it would be heavy but once it's on the strap, it stays put and doesn't neck dive. Got stung on delivery and import duty, so realistically not going to get my money back on it. Price is £275 or near offer. I live in East Herts and work in West Herts during the week and gig in Essex at the weekend. Drop off or meet up is possible for free if it's on my way or can drive out of my way for fuel cost. Can also post it at cost and at your own risk, though will be fully insured. Don't expect that to be much less than £30. Edit: forgot to mention that I’d be up for trading for other basses, as long as they’re extremely light weight, below 3.2kg. Nut width at least 40mm. Also, fairly shallow front to back. Short and medium scales are preferred but let me see what you got.
  20. Full disclosure, this was a pure eBay impulse buy between sets at one of my gigs. I hit upon it in the last few moments of the auction and as it was going for a crazy low price I thought 'why not'? Probably because the auction was ending at 10:30 pm on a saturday night. I'm going to pass that crazy low price onto a lucky basschatter. It's a lovely vintage old thing, looks to be made in Germany with the nice pickup switches on the pickguard, vol/vol and tone/tone knobs. Why am I selling it so quickly? The honest truth is I really don't get on with the narrow string spacing at the bridge it feels completely alien to me. Strangely, it doesn't feel short scale, probably because the bride is quite far into the body. It probably takes medium scale strings. Sounds exactly like you think it does: thumpy, deep and rich. Helped buy the fact it has the oldest strings I've ever seen in my life. They're completely unmatched. Different (new) strings could well make it sound completely different and I would change them if keeping it. Original 'snake skin' vinyl wrap finish on the body with slight discoloration here and there. Black painted neck with lovely Hofner badge on the headstock and mother of pearl looking 'bar' inlays. Tuners not as spritely as they used to be (who is?) but do their job. They seem to want to remind you of their age while they're doing it. Pickups are fine as stated but the pots are old and crackly. Don't forget this bass is well over half a century old! Pickup is preferred, so you can try it out and know exactly what you're getting. Doesn't feel particularly fragile but just don't trust couriers with something of this vintage. However, I live in East Herts and work in West Herts during the week and gig in Essex at the weekend. Drop off or meet up is possible for free if it's on my way or can drive out of my way for fuel cost. Price is firm. Would look at medium/short scale basses as a trade but only if they're really light and don't neck dive.
  21. How on earth is this still here? It should sell for that price as a 'wall hanger' alone.
