    Hey guys, I have a new baby, and I need to make some space, so I'm getting rid of some stuff. If you don't like my prices, feel free to shoot me a reasonable offer.

    Please note: prices include shipping in the 48 contiguous states. Shipping to other areas may cost more, and will be tacked on accordingly. Thanks!

    NEW ADDITION:
    MEC Gold MusicMan pickup - $60 shipped
    This came out of a Warwick Corvette FNA. The bass came to me with a Basslines pickup in it, but as far as I know the pickup is in perfect working order. Money back + return shipping if it isn't! These pickups sound killer. I have one in another bass of mine and I like the sound of it better than the sound of the Basslines. The MEC is a little deeper, while the Basslines seems to be brighter.

    Rocktron Pro-Rax CRS Chorus - SOLD
    I bought this 1/2 rack unit for my rack setup, but I've gone away from a rack setup now so I don't need this around. Comes with power adapter.

    Ibanez Soundtank Bass Chorus - $45 shipped
    I bought this several years ago, but I never used it as a stomp box. I always used it for recording only. Sounds great and works well. Excellent cosmetic condition as well. Operates on 9V battery. You can also use a power adapter with it, but I don't have one to include in the deal.

    MEC Gold J pickups (passive) - $40 shipped
    These were in my Streamer LX5. There's nothing wrong with them or anything, I just upgraded my entire electronics package to a 3-band system from a Streamer Stage II, and I don't need the extra pickups. They sound great. Both are bridge length by the way. I don't have any pics of the pickups, but they look like standard black jazz pickups.

    Genz-Benz 4-Space Rack Case - SOLD
    This is the deep rack (it's as deep as it is wide, so any amp will fit in it with both covers closed. It's in outstanding condition, with no tears in the carpet covering. I'm not sure how many rack screws I have lying around for it, but I'll include whatever I have. You can get some good machine screws from Lowes for cheap, and they're of a much higher quality than the average cheap rack screw. At one time or another, it has housed a Peavey SessionBass, SWR Bass 350, Genz-Benz GBE600, Eden WT-400, SWR Mo'Bass, Ampeg SVT3-Pro, and a Line 6 Bass POD Pro. ***Forgot to mention this only has rails in the front.***

    Boss ROD-10 Rackmount Distortion box - $65 shipped
    This is a pretty sweet distortion box. 1/2 rack space. Footswitchable (but I don't have a footswitch, I just used it for recording), or it can be engaged/disengaged with the button on the front. Though it wasn't designed for bass, it has a 3-band EQ (with a frequency control for the midrange) which makes it very nice with a bass! Has fuzz, distortion, and 3 overdrive settings, along with controls for drive and overall output level.




    I can't think of anything else at the moment.
    Thank you, and I sincerely appreciate the help!

    I never tried to take the covers off, so I don't know for sure. Anyone else know?

    There were some things on this thread that had to be moved to a new thread in the non-bass forum, in case anyone wondered.

    Thanks,

    PM Replied.

    Sorry all, I forgot to mention that the Genz Benz rack case only has rails in the front, not in the back.

    Thanks,

    I'm kinda holding the rack and Rocktron chorus right now, but they're not done deals yet or anything, so they're still fair game for now.

    Nah, when I replaced the electronics, I had to kinda use some parts from the old electronics because the "like new" ones I bought weren't 100% functional. Raw deal. I have a couple pots lying around somewhere, but I'm just going to hold on to 'em.

    Sorry buddy.

    I have these in both of my LXs and I keep the EQ flat 99% of the time. I don't think you really need the active EQ for them unless you like to play with EQ a lot while playing. They sound great and that's a sweet price! (bump)
     
  19. would it be possible to hear some clips of the rack distortion?
    i might be interested :)

    Actually Webtroll, the Js have sold, I just can't edit my original post for some reason.

    Super - I'll try to get some kind of clips recorded ASAP. It sounds great for guitar and bass both. I just don't need it.
