Just thought I'd mention a proviso on Farnell - minimum order of 20 when paying with personal credit/debit card. Thankfully my work has an account with them for when I want a single black Neutrik locking jack socket without paying same again or more for postage :)

I have had good experiences buying tubes from Hotrox www.hotroxuk.com/
They were helpful and not hell bent on selling you the most expensive stuff. Ended up having a 15minute chat about 60's carlsbro heads, which was unexpected but good! :)

Here's a source for screws, bolts and stuff but more importantly, american size fixings. Got some 10/32 socket head screws for my Genz amp.

No minimum order - you can literally order a couple of screws- I did!

I've just got myself a headstock decal from a UK ebay source. It's of as high a quality as I've seen and superbly packaged with clear instructions. It was 6 inc postage.

The guy is wary of my posting links to his website which has pics of his wares which is fair enough - but if anyone's interested in doing up their basses with such products PM me and I'll give you the links.

BTW - my opinion of anyone using products such as these to try and scam someone else into buying a fake is lower than a Yorkshire Terrier's bollocks. I'm sure most of us around here are decent enough to use these things for cosmetic reasons re. their own gear and should they decide to sell on will be 100% accurate in their descriptions of what they're selling.

I would hate anyone looking here to abuse my faith in their honesty.

Posting in another thread has reminded me to post this here.

I bought some valves for my Marshall TSL100 from these guys. Reasonably priced and considerably cheaper than say, Watford Valves.

Again he doesn't advertise bass pickups (at present) but will custom wind what you want.
I've just got my beloved wizard neck pup rewound for very reasonable money after it got broken. I mentioned i had a gig and even though he said he was busy it was back with me in two days! A top bloke and excellent customer service.

Thanks Steve,

I've fixed the Fender link and the one at Rane.

Can't find any site for bassguitarpartsdirect so I'm guessing it's gone - if anyone knows different then let me know. :)

I have used ESR many times and they are good. There are two things to look out for;

All prices exclude VAT and carriage.

They can substitute parts between purchases. I bought some quality Cliff Jack sockets from them and the next time the same part numbers were Amphenol. Unfortunately those were not if the same quality (although still good value).
