Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

I played on a Coronado I (single pickup model) when I was a kid - it was my neighbour's. I loved it. He hated it and offered to sell it to me one summer but I decided on a spending my whole summer's wages on a Jazz bass. Never played an original Coronado II, but have played a couple of the new Moder...

Insurance

Hi all,

Just wondering what the best way of insuring my gear is.
Does it come under general contents insurance? Should I specify each item?
Who do you guys use?

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

It's a 50's Framus made in Germany. Framus became Warwick. They were pretty bad, clunky things with lots of thud. Max Merritt and the Meteors in Christchurch used one in the late 50s or very early 60s. They are currently being re-issued, I believe. I wouldn't want to pay more than the start for it....

Re: Show us your pedals

Here's my lovely bunch of squawk boxes.

Just need to add a Line 6 G30 or G50 and maybe a fuzz box.

Tough call.
Of my 9 here in NZ, my decision would come down to my 77 Precision or my 2011 Jazz

Re: Anyone G.A.S free?

I was totally GAS free after modding my Dean Stylist Cabbie with Gretsch Blacktop Filtertrons but of course I am back to my old ways- coveting a few choice items. Still really want an old-school fender Bassman 135 with pyramid quad or a TV Combo (210 or 115). I would also settle for a new Ampeg Port...

Re: Can't decide on a new amp

I would wait and order the new 2014 Fender Rumble 200 or 500 Easily the best value for money amp of the year. It's all of the Genz Benz remains that Fender have repackaged since gutting the company! Way, way lighter, louder and with far more features including the only real flaw that held back origi...

Re: Buying Basses in NZ

Hello there! I've been in NZ for 4 years now and having come from Ireland I can sympathise with you in terms of price! It's crazy expensive by comparison. Even secondhand, there is a considerable difference. I put it down to how far away NZ is from everything and how little there is in terms of supp...

Re: NBD - Warwick Triumph

That looks stunning!

Always wanted to try a Triumph. My mate had one of the first ones in Blue oil-stain but he never used it and sold it on before I got a chance to have a go!

How does it sound?
