For sale is a beautiful example of Martin Petersen's work. It was made for Randy Hope-Taylor about 20 years ago, and the chap I bought it from recently had owned it for many years. It's certainly unusual, sporting a Tele headstock and stacked knobs, and as with all Martin's work, beautifully made. Having played extra long scale 5-string basses for many years, sadly it just doesn't work for me and my gorilla mitts!
Surf green body with matching tele shaped headstock
Flamed maple neck / Rosewood fingerboard
38mm nut / 19mm string spacing
Gotoh GBR640 tuners
Alder body / parchment pickguard
Passive / stack knob
Mørch single coil jazz pickups ( 60s spacing )
Vintage spiral saddle bridge
It also comes with a chrome neck pickup cover and an additional tort scratchplate. The neck & fingerboard was originally painted white, but the previous owner had this stripped some years ago by Martin Sims, and he did a great job revealing the beauty of the flame maple.
The only trade I would be interested in is for a 35" scale 5-string with 19mm spacing.
I'm selling my Zoom R16 which has only been used for one evening at my home. It's a compact digital recorder which can be used as a USB control surface for your favourite DAW or to record 8 tracks simultaneously. I bought it for that latter feature as our band had done a few storming gigs and I wanted to try and get a live recording down. Of course, the band imploded before I could do this and it has sat in its box ever since.
It comes with all manuals, leads, PSU etc that came with it along with a 2GB SD card and Cubase LE which I have not downloaded so can be yours.
These are £317 at Amazon & £329 at Thomann (with delivery on top). Save yourself a bundle at £200 including postage to you or same with socially-distant collection from Croydon.
For the bass cover of the week I chose this time to go into a pop song by the young superstar Dua Lipa to see how the Tribe behaves also in this musical context. For this cover I only used the single coil in the 60s position (the one near the neck) and the tone at 70% ... good listening!
Hi everyone. Hoping someone can give me some advice.
Looking an Interface to record bass through GarageBand on my iPhone/ IPad over guitar parts received from a friend.
I was looking at the Focusrite Itrack Solo - is this suitable, or is there a better alternative around a similar price?
Thanks in advance for you input.
