Hey guys,

So i was cleaning out the bass cupboard, found these little things I was gonna chuck out, but figured I'd see if anyone wants these....then James mentioned a thread he'd seen over on another recording gear forum....

Thus I thought there might be a cool idea for a thread here...where you post up free stuff :) Its a great way to clean out unused items, that might be helpful for others etc. A good way to be a bit more environmentally friendly than chucking out stuff (which is what I would have done with my items....)


Onto my free stuff...

Planet Waves strobe tuner (GONE)
Cheapo basic strap
4 x Warwick strap locks (strap section only...buttons not included) (BOTH GONE)
.025 High C Warwick EMP String. (GONE)
Mounting bracket kit for power supply for Pedal Train 2.

Note - the Warwick strap locks are only useful to anyone who has a Warwick bass with the original Warwick strap pins installed on it. They will be useless to everyone else!

All free ...or you can throw a can of coke my way :)

Hey man, I'm keen on the C string and a set of the strap locks, won't take both as I already have one set and someone else can grab the other set.

Do they work with Dunlop strap pin ends I wonder?

Funny timing, I literally just asked my friend if he had an old C string lying around because I want to tune my 5er E-C.

They don't im afraid mate - they will only work with Warwick strap pins - which aren't included...I was gonna chuck em, but thought there might be a few warwick owners who might like a spare set...

The High C is yours...PM me ya postal address and I'll shoot it off this week for you!

Too easy man. I do have a second set of Dunlops, but have lost the little clip that holds it all together, do you think the clip from these could fit?

PM on the way....

Yeh I'm not sure mate - I had a Warwick that had dunlops on it, and none of the parts seem compatable...

I'll see if any warwick users jump in for it, but if not, i'll post you a set to cannibalise...if it don't work, u can chuck it!

Seein' as we now have two Free stuff threads, I'll just chuck my post in here and the other one can sink......

----------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a thread over on http://www.gearslutz.com and the idea is you put something up for free and it goes to the first person to PM you (or, if you like, you can decide on a little game, some people ask for jokes and the funniest gets the item etc.). The only thing asked is that you put something up free for someone else in return, it doesn't matter how big or small the item you put up is, only that you pass on the good karma. I'd like to keep this an ongoing thing, hence why I started a new thread.

Sound like a cool idea?

Since I already got a C string and strap locks from anarchyok I'll start.

I have 2 x DADI Low B strings. From memory I think these are .120 or .125, great strings IMO, they last an awfully long time.

Up next is a set of Genz Benz Rack Ears for the NeoPak amp. I ordered a set of these from Billy Hydes and they arrived without screws, sent that set back and contacted GB directly. These are brand new un-opened in original packaging, with all mounting screws.

Sure thing, PM me a postal addy mate...

Just to clarify, (just adding this bit to the thread) the Warwick strap locks are only useful to anyone who has a Warwick bass with the original Warwick strap pins installed on it. They will be useless to everyone else!
