    Looking for an inexpensive 4v Comp Eb Bass.

    Do you or your band have a beat-up old Eb from before that Lottery grant??
    Any shape or size or bore or finish.
    Can be littered with dents (patches = less good) but as long as the valves can be made to move and it blows, I'd like to hear what you have!
    PM me :D

    NW area.

    Check your band storeroom now!

    I've got a B&H Imperial 4V EE Bass that I used to practice on at home.
    It's been converted from the old "High Pitch"and I've had it since 1979.
    It's in pretty good nick considering its age, obviously it has suffered dints etc over the years, but nothing major, it's about 50 years old I would guess)and plays very well though the valves are a bit noisy they work as well as any.
    I bought it refurbished from Kitchens of Leeds (Now spun off as Band Supplies) and it originated from Hickleton Main Colliery Band.
    I use my band instrument for home practice now so I would be prepared to let it go for about £250.
    If you're interested send me an email to and I'll send you a digi picture.
