Its only me

November 11, 2009

I am a bass player and welder amongst other things.  Heres some of my bass kit. The welding kit is to follow. 🙂

A pic of  my favourite bass guitar.  (its the white one) A Squier Classic Vibe jazz bass bought from Dawsons in Chester in the Spring for £280.  Six months later its priced at £360, so i think i got in at the right time eh?

The red Peavey Milestone MKIII i got for £30 off ebay a while back and its a real great sound. At least it was till i put some new cheapo roundwounds on it, Argghh! sounds twangy and far too bright now. I may put on it a set of Rotosound mono flats i have. I put a set on my Squier and it sounds excellent.

The two combo amps/speakers behind the basses are an old Peavey MK III 260C with a 15inch B&W speaker. The one below is a 450 Watt Behringer BX 4210A. I bought that for £70 again off ebay. It sells new for between £370 – 420 even now. It even still had its labels on it and looked hardly used. I think hhis wife made him sell it, as she was sick of the noise:) As i also bought sixteen speakers and small combo amps from him for £16 quid in an ebay auction a week later. Yes thats sixteen quid for 16 amps. I still cant belive it even now. They went crackers when i turned up at home with them. I never told them i had another six in the boot, I only showed them ten that they saw all over the seats (lucky i have a Volvo)
