I have a copy of Random Precision- Recording the Music of Syd Barrett book which I have for sale on Amazon priced at £115. It's the second cheapest on there. But should any forum members want the book, I'll sell it for £85. Please pm me if interested.
Really don't want to part with the book but seriously need the cash.


Good luck with the sale, it's tough when you really need the money and have to part with stuff. Ebay prices are higher so fingers crossed for you.

Nope.  £29 (with free postage!), £62 and £50 for completed sales...that's the only price that matters on eBay.

Still have it though I'm not sure if I actually want to part with it now.

Decided to keep the book after all. Removed it from Amazon too.

Having a big clear out and have just stuck a load of FC stuff on Ebay including The Other Boot/Third Leg 3 cd set and the 1989 very rare sweatshirt I am wearing in my avatar. Also the 1971 Ainsdale Beach DVD of Steeleye & FC.

I've reluctantly taken the decision to sell my 1988 Rob Armstrong mandocello. Having taken delivery of a new one from Rob last year, I find myself no longer in need of its services. It has (as you can see) a few honourable scars which is largely down it’s having done hundreds of gigs and having been played pretty much every day. It’s been my main instrument for the last 10 years and I’d really like it to go to someone who’ll play it and love it as much as I have.

It comes with a hard case and K&K Pure Mini pick-up installed. It was set up and some of the more egregious scars on the soundboard were restored towards the end of last year (see photos). A new one will set you back around £2000 and at least a year's waiting time.
The scale length is 640mm and the nut width is 40mm. I currently have it tuned to FCGC but am happy to restring it to GDAD/GDAE (bouzouki tuning) or CGDA (standard mandocello tuning) for a prospective buyer to try.

I'm based in Coventry and you're welcome to come and try before you buy. I'm only really prepared to post via DPD's door-to-door service - but to be honest I'd much prefer to hand it over to the buyer myself rather than entrust it to a courier. I get around the country a fair bit - all my live dates are on the website www.greenmatthews.co.uk as well the odd video/audio of the mandocello in action.

Any questions welcome.

Swarb's nephew, Simon, has two Neumann microphones for sale that belonged to Swarb. Check out the links below.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dave-Swarbrick-s-Atrax-Studio-Neumann-TLM-103-Microphone-/173637330331

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dave-Swarbrick-s-Atrax-Studio-Neumann-TLM-103-Microphone-/173637355151

These TLM 103 microphones were bought brand new and used by Swarb in his Coventry studio ATRAX from the early 2000s up until his death in 2016. They recorded lauded Albums such as raison d’être, Red Clydeside (Swarb and Alistair Hulett),Live and Kicking (Swarb’s Lazarus), Both Ears and the Tail, Straws in the Wind, (Swarb and Martin Carthy) and many many tunes and songs for other musicians worldwide. Musicians, as well as Swarb, included various members of Fairport Convention, Beryl Marriott, Peggy Seeger, Julie Felix, Bert Jansch, John Kirkpatrick, Kevin Dempsey, etc, etc.This is a whole chunk of Traditional folk music history here! Sold now by the Estate of Dave Swarbrick, October 2018.
There are some dents in one of the mics but it has been tested and works perfectly.
