- COG "Inertia" - Knightfall Distortion and Custom Grand Tarkin Bass Fuzz in one! One of a kind custom pedal! => 185Euro/ 165£
"Inertia" is a custom, one of a kind pedal designed to provide warmth and dynamic distortion through the Knightfall, and huge fuzz tones through the Grand Tarkin while keeping a small footprint overall. Subtle changes were made to each circuit to squeeze the last few drops out of what each could do; with the Knightfall running at 18v, and corner frequency adjustments on the Tone control of the Grand Tarkin, in a very similar way to Dweezil Zappa's Custom Tarkin Fuzz.
The Knightfall was selected for this custom build as the requested specification required an effect with the versatility to provide either an always-on overdrive, a boost, or to add just a touch of grit to a bass guitar tone. To mate it with other equipment and to provide increased headroom, the Knightfall runs at 18v, boosted internally. (The Inertia runs on a regular 9v power supply!)
The addition of the Dweezil mods to the Grand Tarkin creates an extremely versatile bass fuzz, with the filtered clean blend maintaining the enormous lows and the combination of Tone, LPF and HPF allowing a broad range of fuzz tones while still retaining the character of the Tarkin. The LPF and HPF controls are both "more" controls, extending the cut-off frequency of each further into the mid-band of frequencies. With the Tone knob at noon, turning the LPF up will add low-mids initially, and turning up the HPF will add high-mids. The combination of the two allows the user to dial in cut or boost of the mids, and a choice of where those cuts and boosts will affect the mids, and also how wide those cuts and boosts will be. Is it overkill? Yeah, probably. Does it sound awesome? Unquestionably, yes!

From right to left:
- Ross compressor clone/ Tuner
-EHX Bassballs clone
- Sansamp alike pre-amp, but slightly cleaner sounding than a Sansamp
- Boss OC-2 clone (as close to the real thing as you'll ever get with a clone!)
- Simple, but very musical one knob chorus
Ad an FX-loop, balanced D.I. and a super-sturdy, yet small and lighweight enclosure to that and it's hard to believe you can get all this for such a little amount of money!
Only selling as I'm starting my own pedal building business now.
So it seems like there are not a lot of short scale fretless basses around, but if I can find a decent one within my budget limit I sort of ponder on buying one in the near future.
I'll like it to be max 30" scale length, preferably be a 4 string, and my budget limit would be about 400£, but I'd prefer cheaper, as long as it is still decent (I would suspect a pickup upgrade down the line being necessary anyway in this kind of price class).
Does such a bass exist?
All suggestions are welcome.

6.5 kg(without backrest)
Collection in person preferred, but we can drop it off if within 5 miles from central Cambridge.
A white, single-ply plastic pickguard/scratchplate for a standard P-bass. Holes cut for standard split pickup, volume and tone controls, and jack socket. 13 countersunk screwholes, and two either side of the pickup hole, should you wish to add an ashtray.
I won't lie: this is an old, cheap part, taken from a Brandoni self-assembly kit I acquired around 2000-1.The original white colour has faded, but apart from a bit of scuffing on the edges, it's in pretty good nick. Ideal for anyone looking to complete a parts bass on the cheap. Free to a loving owner; this comes from a smoke free home, we have had cats but neither of them have sat on this scratchplate to the best of my knowledge.
(I'll pop a photo in here once I've cleaned it up!)
