Re: FS: 1990 Warwick Thumb NT 4 String

Nice Bass! :thumbup: And it does absolutely nothing. Baseball bat neck, 4 strings only, heavy, despite 34" scale quite hard to play in the money region. It's funny; I've gone the other way. :hmm I've got a Corvette $$ Fretless here that I really wasn't 100% sure about when I first got it (for very s...

Re: Favorite Strings?

For rounds, it's usually either D'Addario EXL's or DR Lo Riders.
Others are Chromes & GHS Pressurewounds.

WTB: Bits & Pieces Wanted

I have a few weeks with a bit of time to myself coming up, so I'm going to attempt to knock over a few of the "Bitsa Projects" I've had lying around for many weeks/months/years (and in at least one case, decades!... :red face ). Chasing any of the following items: 1. 5 knob Preamp to suit active pic...

Re: FS One Control Hookers Green Bassmachine Bass OD

Is it anything like the blueberry? Very much like the Blueberry; I've had both of them side by side on a board & you could set them up to sound identical. If anything, the HG has a wider gain range; it'll still do the transparent 'barely on' OD same as the BB, but it has a bit more gain on tap at t...

Re: Amp for Country?

Before you shell out for a new Amp, maybe invest in a service for the Traynor. The OP valves could be a bit tired, or it could just need a good overall service; especially if it's one of the first gen 200's, as the auto bias in them was a bit prone to issues. I've played a lot of Country (both trad ...

Re: Short scale bass ideas?

Another vote for the Mustang; good way to get into Short scales while still having a reasonably familiar tone & feel. Personally I love hollowbody Shorts with flatwounds (Jerry Jones, Hofner, Dano, ect), but if you've mainly been playing conventional solid Basses it'll be a fair departure from what ...

WTB/WTT: Onboard Preamp 5 Knob

I'm after a 5 Knob onboard preamp; actually I'm after two of them!... 1. An EMG Preamp, or something else that matches the output of active EMG pickups (35-DC) 2. A Preamp to suit passive (SD Basslines) pickups. I'm in Melbourne; eastern suburbs. Can pay $$$, or can offer a trade/swap with any of th...

Re: Pedals for trade or sale.

The Hookers Green sounds good. https://youtu.be/nHTk_xikJqc It is a great pedal. :thumbup: It's pretty much a Blueberry, albeit it with a touch more gain. There's three versions of the Blueberry; the original BFJ (which is pretty much unobtainium these days), the Bearfoot, and this one. All have su...

Re: Whats the deal with Eden Bass amps?

When Eden first moved production to China, there were a few initial teething problems. Also some time prior to going to China, Eden shifted camp from Montrose to Illinois; during that period a few of the models suffered some design & manufacturing hiccups (although the WT-550 wasn't one of them). So...
