Probably going to be moving to a much smaller house, thanks to the credit sodding crunch, haemoraging money on petrol and not in a band at the minute so I'm stripping down to 'one electric, one acoustic, one bass', and a reet basic drum kit. And hence for sale is all this stuff:
From left to right - Peavey Delta Blues guitar amp, Breedlove Atlas electroacoustic guitar (with custom-fitted Hiscox hardcase), Stagg DH 12" hi-hats and 21" EXO dry ride cymbal, a Laney B1, Marshall MBC410 bass cab and Bass Colection SB441, an Admira Classico classical guitar (and a pair of 50cm Gale speaker stands and a NAD analogue hi-fi tuner, should anyone have a need for those).
Peavey Delta Blues SOLD
More to follow...

Next, Breedlove Atlas AC250 electro-acoustic. Certainly the best mid-range acoustic I've ever played, made by the US company under license in Korea and set up in their Oregon facility. One TINY mark in the front (a perfectly circular 'dink' about 1mm across, no idea where it came from!) and a few pick marks over the soundhole but otherwise in great condition with a Hiscox hardcase which I had custom-fitted at the Hiscox factory. The case currently has 'Savage' sprayed onto it, but I'm 99% certain that'll come off with a bit of isopropyl alcohol.
The solid top's made of cedar, with what I believe are rosewood back and sides; the preamp's a Fishman Classic 4 with control over bass, middle, treble and brilliance. Sounds brilliant both plugged and unplugged, for a 'do-it-all' acoustic at a great price this is the one! Looking for around £350.
And it continues...

One for the drummers - a pair of Stagg 12" Brilliant finish DH Medium hi-hats and a 21" Extra Dry Exo ride cymbal. Both made from B20 bronze, superb-sounding cymbals for the money and make a very nice combination (even more so if using the hats as auxillaries alongside a pair of 14"ers, but they work very well together as mains), both in excellent condition with no cracks, dents or keyholing. Looking for forty quid for the hats, seventy for the ride or £100 for both.

The Laney B1 head - 700W into two ohms (Laney state it's 1500W, but that's bollocks - still stupid-loud though! The problem with these heads is the over-sensitive protection circuitry, which tends to trip the amp out at gig levels - HOWEVER I've found that running a compressor into the front end of it removes this problem totally, so I'm including the Yamaha compressor pedal I've been using with it.
Features-wise, this has got loads - you can run bridge-mono into four ohms, use the inbuilt active crossover to feed high and low cabs with variable crossover point, or just run the two power amps into four ohms each. As you can see from pics, it's got a foot-switchable graphic, plus high and low rotary equalisers, Speakon outputs, pre/post-switchable XLR DI out, plus a tube/solid-state hybrid preamp with independent gain controls.
I'm including the customised Crate footswitch which I've been using with it, which will switch the graphic, the pre-shape contour and switch the FX loop in and out (actually, I've just had a 'dead' jack in the FX send which effectively makes the FX a mute switch for tuning via the tuner send). A couple of the EQ slider LED 'holders' have one side broken off, but all works as it should ; the case it's pictured with I've sold separately, so after about £250 for the head, footswitch and compressor.

600W into 4 ohms, VERY loud; jack and Speakon inputs, tweeter in/out switch. It's in very good nick, the only reason I know it's ex-Emergenza festival is that it's a got plate stapled to it saying as such!
I'm in Walsall, West Midlands, but often in Warwickshire if that makes collection easier; after about £150 for this.
And finally, the Bass Collection SB441. It's a late-90s Japanese-made job (bought new in 1998, IIRC), they weren't in the Bass Collection catalogues over here and according to the shop I bought it in (Bass Centre in Birmingham) it was imported by accident - I've certainly never seen another one like it!
The body's got a few little dinks (mostly around the upper edge where your forearm goes) and the scratchplate's got a few, well, scratches, but overall it's in good condition and sounds superb. The dual P-type pickups and two-band active electronics can give you pretty much any sound you need and for bassists who want to stand out the red sparkle finish and mirror 'plate look brilliant under stage lights. Looking for somewhere between £250-275 or possible trades, WHY?
