    So I am cleaning up my basement trying to get rid of some stuff ( makes room for new stuff!).

    First I have a matched set of 12 Sovtek 5881WXT tubes, these are the same tubes Mesa Boogie sells/ recommends for the 400 and 400+ amps (but they put their name on them). I recently bought a 400+ which the previous owner had just retubed (he worked in a store that sold tubes and got these matched for cheap). The tubes only have a couple of hours on them- I already planned to put different tubes in it when I got it anyways (Shuguangs), so they came out only a couple days after I recieved the amp. I live about 5 minutes from NBS electronics, which is Lord Valve's store- I had him retube the amp and check these tubes, which he said tested great....They will come carefully shipped in the boxes for the new tubes I bought- $85 shipped, trade (check below), or best offer!


    I have an older set of EMG active PJ pickups. I posted these previously in another thread, but that thread got a little cluttered, so...They still work perfectly, but the J pickup has 1 little circular groove that was caused by a badly designed screwdriver (coupled with my own stupidity :rolleyes: )- there are also 3 smaller dings from the same incident, but they are much less noticeable (see picture). I have 3 25K pots, which are the value that EMG recommends for use with their pickups, as well as a battery clip.....$55 shipped for just the pickups, $65 for the pickups + pots/battery clip or a trade (see below), or best offer!

    I have a set of pickups and active preamp from a 1990 Carvin LB70- they were from a stereo bass, so the controls are: master volume, pickup blend, + tone knobs for each pickup ( the tone knobs work similar to a TBX control- in the center is flat, one way is a normal tone contol, the other way acts as a bass cut), also there is a bright switch for the bridge pickup, a deep switch for the neck pickup and a phase switch.... I will take pictures if someone is interested....$30 shipped, trade ,or best offer!

    Lastly, I have a Carvin 10" bass speaker, from their Redline Series- it is 8 ohms and handles 200 watts...I don't have a picture at the moment, but will take one if someones interested...$35 shipped, trade, or best offer!

    Trade Interests
    I am looking for a nice hot P or MM pickup (4 or 5 strings), especially a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder or Rio Grande Muy Grande. Also looking for a Radial Switchbone amp switcher, an EBS Multidrive, and a noise suppresor pedal of some sort. Lastly I would trade towards a G&L SB-1 or SB-2 or L-2500 with a maple fretboard (or just the neck!). Really you could offer me most anything! I like to try new stuff!

    Thanks,

    Karl Zickrick

  3. Bump & testimonial for the Bass Driver- I just got one from TBer didier(great seller)& I'm very impressed. A/Bing against a Blue Tube pedal, the Flip is MUCH more versatile- there's a TON more gain if you want, & the semi-parametric mid control does more for me than the Blue's 3-band(mind you, I like the BT, I just LOVE the BD:) ). $60 is a great price, too.

    Thanks bassteban- I was really impressed with the Guyatone as well when I first got it- having heard nothing about it...I figured why not give it a try! I still have it after blowing through about a half dozen other bass overdrive pedals- its close, but still not quite what I'm looking for. I wish that mid control was on every drive pedal though, it is a very well thought out addition- it helps you manipulate/ eliminate that certain midrangey sonic signature that every overdrive has- I always boosted some really low midrange, and it was crunchtastic!

    Yes, they are actually the same tubes Mesa Boogie sells for use in their 400 and 400+ amps- except that these are straight from Sovtek, whereas Mesa prints their own name on the same tubes and charges you more for them! They are the most common "stock" 6L6 type tube, as they are insanely reliable and last a long time. They also go by - Sovtek 6L6GC.

    Sounds good- I don't know if the 150s have some crazy high plate voltage like my HD130 had, but these tubes should handle it pretty well is so- they are mostly known for their durability/ reliability (I believe Mesa also has relatively high plate voltages). Also- if you just want 4 or six, i'll probably keep 6 for my Mesa D-180.( as no one seems interested in a trade....) If you want all, thats cool too!
