For sale Phil Jones Bass Double Four - £285

 

I’m Selling my Phil Jones bass Double Four – These are great amps with a sound and clarity I'd associate with bigger amps, and capable of surprising volumes for its size. It has 70 watt output (RMS), and sounds hi fi, especially compared to other practice amps.

 These sound great with electric, and double basses, and can handle low B strings with ease, producing a powerful, clear bass fundamental without distortion.

 The amp section includes:

Low and high input selector and mute switch

Mute led indicator which also doubles as a clipping indicator

Eq and gain structure controls

Aux input with dedicated volume control

Headphone socket

Line out

 It’s solidly built with metal knobs, control panel, and protection bars, and has a robust rubber carrying handle.  Very light at only 8.8 lbs / 4kg.

Sale is because I've got my eye on something expensive and need to generate some funds. I’m based in Shtrewsbury by the way. Collection welcome, but can also ship at buyers expense. Any questions please let me know.

Please look out for other for sale posts as I'm also selling a Genz Benz Streamliner 900, Squier VM ’77 Jazz Bass, Barefaced gen 3 Big Baby 2, and a Stagg EUB with lots of accessories.

Thanks for looking!

Depends where you're based really. Where are you?

Not sure if this is any help but I was asked to ship mine within the UK and with UPS on a next day, fully insured for £300, it was £20.  You can get cheaper but UPS are definitely the best.

Hi Rob,

Yes, it's still available, and am more than happy to ship. I'm in Shrewsbury, so quite a way from where you are. 

Switch to PM, and we can sort something out.

Many thanks

Worth saying I use a double four regularly as a small session amp, and unlike most PJB stuff Ive tried , it gives a nice old school sound.

Its light, portable, and because it's 20v , you can run it off a laptop battery.

Hope this is useful.

Yes, thanks for your comments. I must admit I haven't tried it with a battery, but yes, that's possible too. 

Great little amp, still available!

      So after much deliberation, and with little hope of my back pain residing, after already letting go of my Kay double bass and KK baby bass, here on Basschat, it’s time to bid farewell to my final EUB. 
      Heres the blurb from the Clevinger main site:
      Clevinger Bassic
      MINIMAL HEAD.
      Shoulderless trapezoid body.
      Bassic black lacquer.
      Volume control.
      Clevinger ABST (Acoustic Bass Simulation Technology) pickup.
      Four String only - $2899.00
      http://www.clevinger.com/clevbass/Clevinger Bassic/bassic.htm
      Very close to an upright sound, thanks to the Clevinger ABST pickup.
      Waiting list is between 8-12 months! 
      Lovely bass to play, no annoying on stage feedback, comes with tripod stand, original faux fur lined Clevinger Soft case and no name bow (c/w cover) should you wish to dip your toes into Arco. Nice and compact when folded down, not much longer than an EB case.
      As always collection preferred, based in Ireland. Overseas buyers welcome, but you will need to organise your own shipping/ courier.
      Sale price £690, trade price £1,200
      Thanks for looking.

      BAREFACED Super 12t in superb condition and Roqsolid cover with board protector.
      Time to move this fantastic cab on as I’m not using it anymore and it’s too good to just leave sitting around.
      Great sounding all - in - 1 cab solution.
      Light in weight, but not in tone and volume!
      No concerns or problems whatsoever.
      4ohm.
      30” H x 19.5” W x 13.5” D
      19Kg.
      Roqsolid cover with board protector fitted. Small tear on one of the side handle openings as can be seen.
      Prefer pick up, but could meet within reasonable distance for petrol. Might courier, but not got any packaging at the moment and I’m away middle to end of next month, so it would probably not be sorted until back at beginning of June. Pm me if that’s what you need and we can discuss.
      Thanks.
      Apologies for the photos!

      Hello all!
      This is a feeler for the sale my awesome condition 1973 / 74 Fender Jazz bass in Sunburst.
      Its RW board, block inlays and bound.
      Photos are here in my photobucket album - 
      http://s1341.photobucket.com/user/bassintheface/library/Fender Jazz Bass 1973 - 1974
      It's in really excellent condition with only a couple of minor chips which I've tried to clearly show on the pics.
      The serial number on the neck plate is 509063 which is 1973 / 1974 which puts it as one of the last 4 bolt neck versions out of Fullerton before they went to the bullet truss rod and 3 bolt neck in 1974 / 75.
      The CTS pot codes date the bass to 5th Week 1974 - Jan / Feb (1377405) so the feedback on the age was that it was likely put together very late 1973 or very early 1974 - as you know with Fender around this time, its a combination of date stamps that help you get an age of an instrument.
      It comes with a generic hardcase and re issue versions of the pickup cover and ashtray from a USA 70's reissue.
      I will get neck end photos and pickup photos - from memory, you can only see a stamp on the bridge pickup now since the rewind of the neck pick up - its 5 years or so since Matt had it open, so will check  his photos and hopefully  add to the photobucket album above - if not, I'll have to get it opened up.
      I bought it from a friend around 5 or 6 years ago and the story was (note that this is completely unsubstantiated) that it belonged to Andy Scott of the Sweet and was used for recording /demos and never gigged, hence the condition. I really don't know if this is true and no one will ever know, but Andy Scott is from my hometown of Wrexham so it is plausible.
      The bass had been unplayed for a number of years prior to my purchase and upon getting it, the neck pickup didn't work and the elecs were intermittent and crackly.
      I swiftly sent it over to the very excellent Matthew John Bascetta in Chester - http://www.mjbluthier.co.uk/
      for a full clean, pro set up and a rewind of the neck pick up - Matt is also the guy behind the excellent 'House of Tone' pickups - https://www.houseoftonepickups.com/
      and he did a full rewind using period correct wire and hand winding, inc wax potting - you can see him at work below.
      It now plays beautifully and sounds, IMO awesome!  
      Feel free to ask any questions - I'd just appreciate PM's with an expression of interest initially as I really don't want to sell it being honest, but it lives at home (non smoking household) and  don't gig it our of fear of damaging it.
      You won't find many in this condition.
      No trades, viewing welcome.
      Cash on collection or bacs.
      I don't want to post this out of fear of it being damaged!
