Beedster's gear sell-off Part 1: Basses
£4000

Recommended Posts

I’ve recently completed what has been a long-standing ambition and had a rather large wooden studio built in a nice little sheltered spot at the end of the garden. Given this, my musical ambition for the coming years now all relate to getting the studio fully kitted out, to recording my own stuff and that of my friends, and to getting the kids into both playing and recording at an early age. It’s never going to be a professional studio but I’ll be able to do some pretty decent recording there, and whilst I won't be recording anything loud in the room, with a few well positioned acoustic devices, it’s sufficient to record acoustic instruments live.

So, I’m going to let go of most of my live gear (e.g. the Aggie Rig), gear that is now redundant as the result of the studio gear and space I can now use (e.g., the PJB Briefcase and Big Head), a few instruments I won't use now I’m not gigging (e.g., the Breedlove, Yamaha and Clarkson), and a few things I need to sell to pay for the build (e.g., the Wal MK1). I’ve put a list and prices below and will add details and photos as the time develops

1. Breedlove fretless acoustic in hard case [url="http://breedlovemusic.com/guitars/solo-bj350-cme4-bass-fretless"]http://breedlovemusi...4-bass-fretless[/url] list price over £1,000, was available in region of £700 but now discontinued [url="http://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/bass_guitars_detail.asp?stock=15022511184026&gclid=CjwKEAiAk7O0BRD9_Ka2w_PhwSkSJAAmKswxnR0PRnJ7rPIisQoZPXGsjWUziJj3xqQQHZg8gkAyERoCdX3w_wcB"]http://www.guitargui...kAyERoCdX3w_wcB[/url][u]. [/u] It’s the only acoustic bass that’s ever worked for me, and the list I’ve owned includes top-end basses by Ovation and Takamine, so the Breedlove has held it’s own against some pretty stiff, and far more expensive, opposition. Bass includes rather nice hard case which I understand was an optional extra over and above list price. £475

2. Yamaha Pulser Bass 400 [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/271771-yamaha-pulser-bass-400/"]http://basschat.co.u...ulser-bass-400/[/url] Better than most Fenders, typically Yamaha, well designed, well made, no nonsense, and high quality £350.

3. Wal MK1 fretless, ebony unlined fingerboard, Mahogany body with Hydua facings [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/268579-1986-wal-fretless-mk1-on-ebay/page__hl__wal"]http://basschat.co.u...y/page__hl__wal[/url]. I had planned to keep this fretless and fret the other fretless Wal I own, but I probably don’t play fretted enough to warrant having £3k tied up in one bass so this one’s going as well! £3000 ono. BTW, it's the one on the left below, I'm keeping the one on the right :)

Note the chips to the end of the headstock in the pics below, this is the only damage to the bass.

[i]I’m also selling in other forums:[/i]

[i]Amps/cabs[/i]
[i]PJB Briefcase [url="http://www.thomann.de/gb/phil_jones_briefcase_combo.htm"]http://www.thomann.d...fcase_combo.htm[/url][u]. [/u] In my opinion the best of the small portable small gig combos. £300[/i]
[i]Aguilar DB750 in rack case. Need I say more, the king of hybrid amps, tone to die for? £900[/i]
[i]Aguilar DB112 (x2) [url="http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Aguilar-DB-Series-12-Speaker-Cabinet-8ohm-Classic-Black/12II?origin=product-ads&utm_campaign=*PLA+Shop+-+All+Products&utm_medium=vertical_search&network=google&adgroup=**All+Products&merchant_id=1279443&product_id=49914d1&product_country=GB&product_partition_id=62260072604&gclid=CjwKEAiAk7O0BRD9_Ka2w_PhwSkSJAAmKswxKUgfgWpC2RB3e7ZV0OlfKUQ4-QwLyL9bnHPWBBgL_hoCY53w_wcB"]http://www.gear4musi...BgL_hoCY53w_wcB[/url]. Lovely retro looks and, like the 750, tone to die for. £800[/i]

[i]Double Basses[/i]
[i]1950's 7/8 English blond double bass (recently overhauled by Philippe Briand including new ebony board). Originally from Jason (Legion), post number 4 here [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/242347-double-bass-porn-thread/"]http://basschat.co.u...ss-porn-thread/[/url]. £1000[/i]
[i]Clarkson. Inelegant lump of wood that makes a rather fine EUB, no more problems with p****d-up punters at DB gigs, this thing doubles as security. Also recently overhauled by Philippe. [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/236573-everyone-meet-clarkson-clarkson-meet-everyone/page__p__2891878__hl__clarkson__fromsearch__1#entry2891878"]http://basschat.co.u..._1#entry2891878[/url]. £250[/i]


[i]As I say, I’ll add photos and further details of all of the above over the coming days. I’m in no rush to sell any of it and am looking for a sale only on all gear. I have all the studio gear I need unless you have a Heil PR-40![/i]

+1 to all of the above!

Chris; Happy New Year by the way - hope all's well with you and your family?

I love the look of the Yamaha so checked out the Eagles track you mentioned... Long time since I've heard it, but what a tune and a great bass intro.

If your bass sounds like that, then that's something else! :)

Well Nik, I'm still travelling down your way quite a lot, and it did sound rather nice through the V4b....

Thanks very much for the comments mate, hope all's well with you. Following our last conversation I was thinking you might want a new blonde in your life to be honest :)

It is isn't it - although not sure what carp have to do with anything :) Looks-wise I have to admit I much prefer it to it's darker sibling in the pic above, but the latter cost me a lot less and is probably not really as good a sales prospect in its current condition anyway.

As a couple of folks have asked, here's a pic of the cabin, as yet unfinished. It looks pretty small but it's deceptive, at about 20"x14" there's plenty of room for a decent sized band to record in there. Wish it would stop raining for a few days so I can get the finish on!

20'' x 14'' :lol: That'll be a small amp flight case then?

Looks great, as does the Wal :gas:

Ah yes, the perils of posting from a phone! To clarify it's about 20 x 14 [u][b]FEET[/b][/u] :)

Really good thanks, Chris..

A new blonde would be very nice but I'm banned from buying any more basses.

Too many have sneaked their way into Silverfoxnik Towers recently (apparently).. :)

Two gorgeous Wals there btw Chris; you have seriously good taste in bass guitars!
