Up for sale is my Bridge Cetus, a stunning instrument that I bought new from Promenade Music in 2018. It has never been gigged or even left my flat, subsequently it is in pretty much new condition. I am selling this with regret as a result of wrist issues that due to an pre-existing condition, are making it very difficult for me to progress on the instrument.
Here are the specs taken from the Bridge Violins website:
Body: hollow moulded bodyshell, from carbon fibre and kevlar composites
Headstock and neck: The neck and headstock are carved from a single maple block. The
headstock design is a modified copy of the 1710 Stradivari Viola da Gamba head. The neck is hand coloured and finished with oils, for a fast, smooth, traditional finish.
Fingerboard: Ebony fingerboard
The Bridge pick up system is encapsulated within the bridge, designed
Tailpiece: ebony tailpiece.
Endpin: Basses use an ebony plug, notched steel rod with brass screw and ferrule, and
removable rubber protector.
Bridge Pick-Up System:
The pickup system is designed by Bridge and unique to these instruments. It uses a piezo crystal configuration giving an accurate acoustic sound with an even tone. The pickup uses all mechanical movements of the instrument to generate its acoustic sound.
Bridge Active Circuitry: has a sophisticated active circuitry dedicated to the frequency range of the instrument, uses a 9V battery giving approx 3000 hours playing time.
This bass has a surprisingly natural and woody tone for an instrument with a carbon fibre body, it's the best sounding EUB around in my opinion. You'll notice that the back plate that houses the 9V battery cavity is lined with Blu Tack; this is not to mask a defect, it was done because the back panel is made of light material and vibrated slightly when I played certain notes on the instrument unplugged. This slight buzz was not audible when it was played amplified.
Not looking for trades, just a sale please. As you can see, the soft case the bass came with offers little in the way of protection so it's collection only from the Preston Park area of Brighton. The bass comes with the aforementioned soft case, a horsehair German Double Bass bow and some rosin. These basses don't come up for sale very often - this one is in practically new condition, they go for £3,250 new. Come and try it out yourself. Message me with any questions or for additional pictures.
Here's my feedback:
Great bass! Not super heavy (cca 5kg). Alder body, spalted maple top, maple neck rosewood board. Tuma Pickups, Bass mods electronics. Jazz Bass on stereoids, great low B !!! 35" scale, no case, price include shipping within EU. Mint!
Had a pair of these to install into a jazz but ended up buying a new bass with Delano FEs in it so I'm sorted for modern tones now.
Neck and bridge sizings so bridge slightly wider.
About 15cm of wire on them
Price includes UK postage.
I am selling a pair of Barefaced Super Compact 3rd generation cabs using the 12XN550 drive units.
These cabs are superb, really clear, accurate and loud. 1 cab is plenty loud enough for most gigs, add the second cab and the sound is huge. Please check the Barefaced website for full details.
These cabs are each rated at 600W into 8 Ohms and weigh 11Kg each and come with padded covers custom made by 'hotcovers'.
Kept indoors and in great condition, only had light use hence why i am selling
Ideally I'd like to sell both cabs together but will consider selling them individually for £450 each.
Collect from Bristol or can send by insured courier if buyer pays postage.
