Put a few things up today: Stu Hamm Urge Signature, Fiftieth anniversary jazz, Custom shop 55P, Fender Super Bassman and 810 neo cab, Markbass combo, pair of Ampeg 210 AV cabs.....all in great working condition, no issues. Bought Marty's two Barefaced One 10s from him, which along with my Barefaced ...

Stonefield basses, anyone???

Over the past several months I have been intrigued by the emergence of Stonefield basses in the bass media. They have been advertising regularly in Bass Player magazine and I notice they were featured recently at Bass Player live. Owner Tomm Stanley has some interesting ideas, including the tuning s...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Rob Burns - there is a man with some real bass cred behind him. Sold him a jazz bass a few years ago and when I realised who it was I almost felt I should have paid him for the honour.............. :oops: :oops: FWIW he was delighted with the bass, Fender custom shop 64 jazz. Never should have let i...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Yep, there is one in Napier. Dude has owned it for many, many years. Shared a few festival stages with him back in the day. One of the first slappers I came across, I think, so that dates it a bit. Can't see him letting it go, he is one of those lucky people who seems to have found "his" bass right ...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Yep, I posted on the auction to the same effect. White pup covers were available around that time, but not all had them. Fender also issued the Elite and Special lines with white pup covers. It never really took off. I can remember buying a tobacco burst precision around then with black pups but the...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Seems to have gone quickly but a great buy for someone, Foal. If it is the one that was listed earlier I know the seller, a good bloke who bought a Bergantino cab from me a while ago. I didn't rate the Ashdown heads until I discovered that the tube heads are in a different league to their other stuf...

Re: New Amp Day.

I have a Barefaced Four 10. Fabulous cab, designed with the idea of approximating the sound of a sealed cab with all-tube heads, but many people report success with solid state too. Sounds wonderful with every tube head I own (Ampeg V4b, Orange AD200, Fender Super Bassman 300 and Trace Elliott V4). ...

Re: BASS / AMP PICTURE THREAD :: Get your cameras ready!

Your Rick is the splitting sister of my 2011 mapleglo, Bronze. I bought mine mint from from someone who was using it in a jazz band - can still remember him saying to me "You will never get lost in the mix playing this." How right he was. Just returned from collecting that Fender Stu Hamm Urge Signa...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Just picked up the Custom Shop 64 Fender jazz relic that I won on TradeMe at the weekend. Wonderful bass with great feel and vibe. Looking forward to getting it home and cranking it. Still can't believe I got it for 2K and no-one else bid with over 40 watchers. Mind you, someone actually asked wheth...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Hey Foal, you still loving that Ashdown 300? I had a less than impressed view of them based on hearing one of the smaller models with an Ashdown cab. Had a check on the net and some of their cabs apparently weren't that wonderful so that probably coloured my view since the heads seem to be getting p...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

You know how good my Four 10 will be- owning two One 10s as you do, Marty :mrgreen: . I have only been using it with all tube heads, but I can imagine it would be great with solid state/class D as well. It has a clear character to it which is very euphonious, not immediately obvious as such but I su...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Hi Foal, yes it went for $1430. Great bass and a real gift for the lucky buyer. Five strings are not for me, dropped D is fine when I need it. Considering a Dingwall 4 string Super P, but would have to sell one of the custom shop precisions to justify it... :roll: Plus I am a little busy directing a...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Just a headsup it is my Dingwall fiver on TradeMe. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1112473811 Great bass, as new, plays like a dream and sounds the same. Just find that I always gig with a four string so not a lot of point in having it lying around. I have enough trouble with four st...

Re: Barefaced.

The Barefaced Four 10 is amazing. Easy to lift and move, small form, but huge tone and character. Sits in the mix beautifully with very little knob tweaking. Band mates noticed it straight away. Just loves my all-tube amps and goes incredibly loud without unpleasant farting if that is your thing, I ...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

Good purchase, Foal. At that price you can't go wrong. The Markbass 300 tube head is a bit of a gift too. But then I am just a tube addict...... :oops:
