Which Ext Cab for Public Transport Travel?

Recommended Posts

So folks,

I really need to pick up a cab that i can travel around London with on public transport.

So i have and Ashdown Superfly and a TC Electronic BG208. I use the Ashdown as my main amp and the built in TC E as my back up. I now need a teeny weeny ext cab that i can put on the trolley with them and still travel about.

You don't seem to be able to pick up the Eden 1x10s anymore which would have been quite suitable. Another alternative is a Phil Jones 4x5 cab i suppose.

Anyway BCers.....the floor is open???

:)

It has to be the traditional Barefaced One10 recommendation. I`m selling an Ashdown RM112 which would pair nicely with the Superfly but it might be just that little bit too big (it`s not massive, just a regular 1x12), whereas the BF will fit the requirements nicely.

There’s also the Markbass Traveller series cabs too (something in the name).

Another, very happy, owner of a Barefaced One10 here.

When I collected mine, Alex said he was really confident the One10 would easily handle high output and be good for some surprisingly large gigs.

I use a barefaced midget when I travel with public transport

Yep, I suspect a Super Midget will give some of the best size-to-power ratio money can buy

If you get one it will fit in a cajon bag along with your amp and cables. I carry mine in a cajon bag by hand but it also came with shoulder straps

Years ago I got a Genz Benz STL-10T.  *Slightly* smaller than the One10 and about the same weight.  Prodigious output, but not enough for a loud band in a big venue (surprise).

If I were buying now, I'd probably go for the One10.  The Midget might be more capable, but it's bigger, heavier, and double the price.  The extra weight alone could well preclude it from your target use.

I use a laptop bag for the head (TC RH450) & gubbins.  That makes everything a manageable carry - bass on the back, laptop bag over the shoulder, and cab in hand.  For the first time in my life, the bass was the heaviest item and the cab was the lightest....

I use my one10 on public transport for small to medium gigs.  If I need more volume I take the Super Midget.

Both are great, but the Super Midget can handle a lot more volume, if that's what you need.

For most of my gigs, the one10 is enough, especially if PA support is there.

I guess we need to consider the Trace 1x10 that’s just come out, I’m planning to get one this year, haven’t tried yet though

      Is a cheap, lightweight, minimum 200W, powered, full range, flat response cab, with a flat response at max. 50Hz, and ideally with some kind of control over the high frequency tweeter as well, too much to ask for?
      I would think yes, by far most likely, but I am open for suggestions of something that at least somewhat approximates that.

      For sale/For Trade a beautiful MTD 535-21 from 1995, very good shape, lightweight (3.7kg) and very rare with this woods configuration.
      It's a bass from second year of the MTD's production (finished in December 1995), delivered with original brown hardcase and Mike's letter.
      Its weight is really surprising for a 5 string and it is very balanced. The sound is filled with growl and presence, lots of low-mids and a really strong character.
      This is according to Tobias, the sound he had in mind when he thought about the evolution he wanted to make by launching this new brand in the early 90s.
       
      Here are specifications :
      Body : Korina, lightweight whith a wonderlful golden color
      Neck : Wenge, quartersawn, one piece, 4 screws bolt-on with asymetric profile
      Fingerboard : One piece of Wenge
      Scale : 35"
      Frets : 21 + 1 frets silver/nickel in perfect shape
      Headstock : 2 + 3 with Wenge veneer
      Nut : Bone
      Pickups : Originals MTD/Bartolini, inverted P pickups
      Preamp : Original MTD/Bartolini, works with two battery, +/-9v configuration
      Controls : Volume/Blend/Bass/Mids/Treble + Mediums frequencies switch 250/400/800 Hz
      Tunes : Originals Gotoh GB707
      Bridge : Original Wilkinson in perfect condition
      Strings Spacing at Bridge : 19mm
      Strings Spacing at Nut : 9mm
      Knobs : MTD
      Hardware color : Black
      Trussrod : One working and perfect set up rod
      Land of Craftsmanship : Handmade in USA
      Weight : 3.7kg
       
      This bass is very easy to play and the weight is super nice when you are standing. The bass has a few strokes and a few marks, but nothing bad for a bass of this age.
      It’s an instrument that has been played and that resonates wonderfully. The sound is typical MTD, with snap and an unbeatable slap sound. The woods used really offer a very ample and imposing sound, with a very good definition and a really important presence in a mix.

      And listen a lots of soundclips here : https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1lENbaYYXVDuhg6jlYJiZX5azU6uf8fj3?usp=sharing
      Don’t hesitate if you want additional photos or soundclips.
       
      For exchanges I am quite open, I am interested in fretted or fretless basses, from 4 to 6 strings.
      Rather looking for a Fbass, Leduc, Ken Smith, or whatever...
      Submit !
       
      For information :
      Price new in 1995: $ 3500 + $ 300 (Wenge neck and fingerboard) + $ 300 (Korina body) + $ 140 (Hardcase) = $ 4240 or current $ 7240 with dollar inflation
      Current new price: $ 5,200 + $ 500 (Wenge neck and fingerboard) + $ 300 (Korina body) + $ 450 (Hardcase) = $ 6,450
       
      3200£ is for average trade value.
      For straight sale, price is negociable.

      Gibson SB-450 
      Cool and rare Gibson from the '70s. Apparently less then 1.000 were made, so there aren't too many of them around. As comparing from the internet (serial numbers and type of tuners), it's likely to be from 1972 or early 1973. I bought it as being a 1972 myself. 
      Pictures:















      As you can see from the pictures, the bass has been used. It has a lot of user marks and finish checking all over. The bridge has been replaced (original one in poor condition is still there), as well as the truss rod cover. It should be mentioned that the plastic cover of the bridge pickup has broken at the point where the adjustment screw enters. Someone tried to melt it together again, but its still loose. I've set the hight, and left it this way. 
      Further this bass is in good functional condition. The neck is straight and all hardware and electronics function like they should. 
      This bass plays and sounds great. It has an open, clear and full punchy sound. Not what is usually expected from a Gibson. It's also a very light instrument; my kitchen scale says it's only 3,35 kilos! 
      The original hardcase is included. 
      Asking €1.100 (approx £975)
      Now €750 with hardcase included or €650 without hardcase. 
      The bass is located in the Netherlands. Shipping is possible at buyers risk and expense. 
      Trades are welcome: old fender Mustang guitar, am std strat... 2eq stingray with lacquered neck, bunch of effects pedals, Mustang bass case, cool old Japanese basses.....
