SOLD Blackstar BEAM Practice Amp
£100

Recommended Posts

Clear-out continues, I am looking to sell this amp as I am using an Ashdown Tourbus 10 right now and the functionality I have on the BEAM is duplicated in the GT1B multi-effects pedal.

Its in great condition, complete with cables, but there is no box or manual.  Manual is available from the Blackstar website if you require and as always this will be very well packed.  As bombproof as you can get with cardboard and bubblewrap.

Get a decent practice bass tone out of it at a volume that wont upset the neighbours

Bass Guitar Amp
The ID:Core BEAM is the first product that caters for bass guitarists. Blackstar have worked extensively on the bass voicings on this amp to make sure they will please even the most discerning player.

Bass 1 Voice setting is a vintage voicing. This voicing is EQ'd fairly flat and will give you warm, smooth, classic bass tones.

Electric Guitar Amp
The electric Voice control has six different settings – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. Using these in conjunction with Blackstar's ISF, you will be able to achieve any tones you are thinking of.

Acoustic 1 Voice setting is designed to be flat response allowing your acoustic to take the driving seat. The tone from the amp will replicate that of your guitar and the guitar's pickup and pre-amp section.

Acoustic 2 Voice setting is a natural sounding, dynamically voiced pre amp that will turn any acoustic guitar into a ready-to-record tone machine.

I've got one of these - great little amps, especially if you dabble in guitar too as it does both very nicely.

      Selling my Sterling Sb14 bass. when it was discontinued in 2015, it retailed for £650 in the UK. I read that Musicman/Sterling Ball deliberately stopped production because it was cannabulizing sales from the more expensive USA Sterling line.
      Plays well through an amp, good intonation up and down the neck, the only issue I can spot is a loose tone control knob(pictured) but the control itself work just fine. No modifications that I am aware of, other than the addition of a Hipshot drop D tuner.
      Specs can be found here: https://www.chorder.com/electric-bass-guitars/sterling-by-music-man/sb14-5200
      Cash on collection only from North London, but I can travel anywhere in London(within reason), for a serious buyer, ideally with some familiarity with this model. Covid rules applying of course.

      Not exactly NBD since I had it for a couple of weeks now or so.
      This is the black satin 'stealth' finish. They seemed to be on the light weight side, and mine didn't disappoint at 8.6 lbs. 
      The set up was poor to start, far too much relief and very high saddles, but a few minutes spent reducing the neck curvature and adjusting the saddles brought it to a very comfortable action. The nut slots are well contoured but a bit too high, which makes me think that somebody tried to adjust the action by playing with the truss rod and saddles, failing, and then going the other way... I haven't adjusted the nut yet because it plays well enough already, but I'll have to do that to make the top positions a bit more comfy to play.
      I really like it. The neck is wider than a SR5 (so the G string doesn't fall off!  ) but not excessively chunky. I find it quite comfortable. Not as nice as the Lakland 5502, but still very comfortable. The narrower string spacing (compared to my 4 strings) and the additional string means I was a little clumsy to start, but I've been playing this bass exclussively since I got it and I'm getting there now.
      In fact, I'm starting to really like this 5 string thing.
      I owned 5 string basses before but I never really got along with any. The closest ones were the Lakland 5502 and the old made in USA EBMM SUB 5. The Lakland had the wider string spacing that I prefer, but I didn't get the Stingray-like sound I prefer. The SUB5 had the sound, but I felt the neck was a bit too narrow and it was a very heavy bass. A Squier Jazz V came and went too, and over the years so did a Peavey Millenium, a Washburn Bantam (that one was pretty good too), a Crafter something or another, a G&L L2500, and maybe something else too. Nothing really stuck. And here comes the Harley Benton. I didn't need a new bass, certainly not a 5-string (by now I had accepted 5 strings are not for me and I no longer wanted to own one)... but these satin black ones looked so good, were so cheap, and the reviews were so positive... that it tempted me. Before I pressed the button, my girlfriend went and ordered one for me, just before they sold out in November.
      If I had to give it a one word review it would be 'wow'.
      This is a very decent bass, regardless of price, but when you consider the price... yeah, wow.
      It has that Stingray vibe and the passive electronics are just fine. Sure, not as versatile as having an onboard preamp, but I actually love passive tone controls, so I'm happy with it as it is.
      For some reason this bass feels and sounds nicer than any of my previous 5 string basses, and because of that playing it exclusively for the past 2 weeks was not a chore. Yeah, it was frustrating at first, but as I adjust to the different layout it becomes more fun... and I feel like something clicked. I'm enjoying immensely how I can move across strings and reduce the movement up/down the neck that way. I don't use the additional lower notes that much, but I use a lot of the notes I would often play on the E string on the B string now, just moving across with fewer jumps to different hand positions on the neck which also means I look at the neck a lot less. And having the option to play those notes between the low E and A on the E string for more definition or on the B string for additional girth is really useful too.
      This may be the bass that makes me finally 'get' 5 string basses. How much does it cost? Crazy. I would have paid quite a bit more for a bass that I can enjoy as much as this one.


       The pickguard will be replaced 'though. Not a fan of tortoiseshell, I think it's screaming for a black one.
