    The last sentence sums it up perfectly, we put a LOT of R&D into the Payson sets. Designed specifically for fanned Basses. Makes all the difference in the world.

    Happy to have you on board.

    I'm not on FB either, but you can still watch the video there as Dingwall's page is public.

    Man - I keep drooling on this one in the classifieds. The only thing I might have done is make it all transparent orange, though I do like the color scheme. Everything else is spec'd just how I'd like it.

    Then again, I was drooling on this one too (though this one is about mandolin frets and candy tangerine):

    I'm sure I could find a few others while I'm at it...

    Wasn't that the AB that was hanging around at bassdirect for ages and looking off next to all the more recent prices? I got to play it at the london bass guitar show last year and it felt great.

    Yes, I do recall seeing this on the bassdirect website. Dunno about the prices.

    I've linked to the bassdirect sold page and the specs and grain match. Looks like the seller has it listed for his purchase price.

    Or just under if he paid shipping. Probably pretty close. So what was "off" price wise compared the others? Lower than expected?

    This was a passive AB that had been around in the bassdirect stock for a while so it looks surprisingly cheap next to the other recent ABs that were also in stock. There was some discussion about it in this thread. Can confirm from first hand experience that the actualy bass is fine.

    You can set up a "virtual adress" in the US then ship stuff to yourself. I use Stackry which has been reliable. They ship tons of packages so they get discounted rates and use that to make a profit.
    Just be sure to factor in import taxes (at the very least ypur country's VAT)

    This arrived this week in trade for a non-Dingwall. My Super PJ5 is being shipped as we speak. It's going to be a good month (in shades of blue)

    Here are some pics (sorry the best I could do last night). It was an angled and straight plug both that I tried. I agree and I was really scratching my head that the sound would cut out in passive mode. If I would flip the switch back and forth a few times eventually I would get sound in passive mode.
    And after playing more I've noticed I that the buzz is in all modes except series bridge neck (that is silent). Either way I'll see what my local guy can figure out also - thanks.

    Sure sounds like the switch to me.....

    I would agree but the strange this is after getting in the cavity and moving things around the switch is fine now but the buzz persists.

    Passive was likely the difference in price (or maybe cause it wasn't moving, who knows). I always like to get active (probably cause it helps for resale), but I usually play passive. I just wish that passive was down on the push/pull.
