'Full on Fuzz, Nasty Edition. Unruly one knob fuzz and no namby pamby 'cleans up with the guitar volume' nonsense... What it does have is a lovely gold block tobacco tin fitted with a simple, single transistor Fuzz and a switch to let you select between 2 different sets of clipping diodes to give you a brighter, fizzier sound or slightly lower output, darker sound with more splatter.'

Of course there are no prizes for guessing the heritage of The Jive Bass - the offset body & twin single coil pickup arrangement are clearly part of bass history - but this is no run-of-the-mill, carbon copy clone.
Inspired by the wealth of experience that the Bass Centre has accumulated over its 30 years in business, as well as by our communication with professional players and customers all over the World, The Jive sports a number of unique features as well as The Bass Centre's own take on tradition. With a body profile that has had 4mm shaved from the familiar outline and The Bass Centre's satin finished "Super Slim Sixties" neck profile (significantly slimmer than the classic "C" shape), The Jive provides a lightweight, comfortable and super-fast playing experience.
Soundwise, The Jive truly delivers all you would want... and then some. The vintage style single coil pickups produce an authentic tone - glittering harmonics, clear, zingy highs & earthy, growling lows are all present & correct, with an even response and stacks of sustain and resonance thanks to the revolutionary Babicz Full Contact Bridge, which comes either as standard issue on selected models, or as an optional upgrade.
Of course, The Jive looks fantastic too, with a choice of flawlessly applied, period accurate finishes and authentic pickguards, with a cool, chrome pickup cover crowning an instrument that boasts superb build quality, awesome playability and a superb, versatile tonal range - all at a astonishingly good price.'

Here is what Bass Collection say...
'The Bass Centre's Single Pickup Powerhouse
Following the success of The Jive Bass, it was only natural that The Bass Centre would turn its attention to re-imagining another iconic design... the result is the Bass Collection Power Bass, an instrument that oozes retro-cool with a wealth of period-accurate appointments including vintage-style pickups, original roller bridge with chrome "ashtray" cover, beautiful classic finishes, matching headstocks and vintage pickguards.
With an instantly recognizable single pickup appearance, The Power's familiar offset body has been reduced by 4mm overall, resulting in an amazingly comfortable, lightweight instrument whose reduced mass has been achieved without sacrificing tone, balance or performance.
Sharing the same satin finished "Super Slim Sixties" neck profile as the Bass Collection Jive, the Power Bass offers a fast moving playing experience with the classic, vintage-style electronics delivering everything you'd expect, from a gritty, snarling, low end punch with sparkling clean definition, to a smooth, rich bass growl.
Authentic tone, stylish good looks, superb build quality, extreme playability... the Bass Collection Power has it all at an astonishingly good price.'
'The SAS32FM is a solid body electric guitar made by Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez brand. It was introduced in 2004 as part of the SA series.
The SAS32FM features a mahogany body with flamed maple top with a set-in neck, and dual humbucking pickups. In 2006 the tremolo and pickups were both updated. The SAS32FM was replaced in 2008 by the SAS32EXFM.'
'Let me introduce you to the Paparazzi Fuzz.. Picture the scene and stay focused.. There I was, in the chocolate aisle, when I caught sight of this tin.. an idea developed.. the fudge that it once contained was gone in a... flash.. and I thought I'd give my idea a shot.
From fudge to fuzz.. The circuit now inside this tin is based on the D.A.M Meathead Fuzz and uses 2n3904 & BC182L transistors.'

Excellent versatile boost / overdrive from the stable of Mike Rivers.
Here's what Mike says...
'It's a boost / overdrive with volume and gain controls to give you amp-like control of your sound and a switch to kick in either silicon or germanium diode clipping give you plenty of bite and grit. Why is it called '11' you ask.. or not.. Well, when cranked to 10 ain't doing it for ya.. you need 1 louder...'
Tag-board hand wired circuit
Controls - 'V' Volume & 'G' Gain
Clipping Switch - 'S' Silicon diodes, 'G' Germanium diodes & centre a no clipping clean boost
'Sean.. Sean Klonnery.. It is a tribute to one of the most hyped and expensive overdrive pedals around. I've added a soft clipping diode switch mod and used the last of the special tone glitter (I've run out of ground unicorn horn and angels tears) on the case.'
Based on the classic Klon Centaur Overdrive circuit with added functionality
