Depends how seriously you take your tone? 😉

Avoid HPF’s like the plaque unless you wanna sound like Bill Wyman 😂😂😭

I have desired a TE V8 for a VERY long time, I even went to the extent of getting the circuit diagrams and seeing if an electronics engineer mate could build one with me. Sadly there are some bits that are almost impossible to get hold of and a guy in America with a few wasn’t keen on letting his tiny stock go for a ‘replica’. This will make its new owner incredibly happy, of that I am sure.

Indeed these are so rare..

Logbook loan or perhaps take the Mrs’ jewellery to CashConverters?

Just to pass the time while you come up with a scheme..

‘VIRTUE’ with bass delay, & Ashdown drive plus pedal🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 .

Forget about high pass filters and ’darkg****s one trick pony pedals, Bass Magazine and funk and all that boring ‘mid’ sounding muso stuff?!!

John Entwistle, Chris Squires, Geezer Butler, Bruce Foxton, even Duff McCagen (US just don’t have the pedigree - could be the over production and quantized, sanitised performances!) are all ledgends as are Steve Harris & Geddy Lee - NON FUNK, NON ACADAMY OF BASS. Just pure talent, creativity and a total disregard for rules and fashion, oh, and tabs.

Would love to hear slap on a 3/4 track at a trade show! 🤥😂😭😭😭

So, back on with the sale.. 👍🏻
