  1. Past hour
  2. Bruno Mars?!... Insert “Vampire reeling at a cross noise"
  3. I'd say “Lil' Wayne" was my greatest influence... He played the guitar so badly that it inspired me to play bass...
  4. Someone did that on here a bit ago, looked weird at first but one of those things you get used to. Probably a good candidate seeing as you're more likely to get a donor one with the headstock snapped off than most other designs! EDIT: Here: Seems to sort the neck dive, where did Neepheid and Ou7hined on here, where did they go?
  5. I've never been asked either. But if a band asked you to give them a song to learn that would put your bass playing skills to the test, what would it be? Forget whether it's a function band or covers, that was really irrelevant to the question. Another that's good fun to play & sounds great too is 24K Magic (the Bruno Mars song).
  6. One thing on your typical hollow body to watch out for is balance/neck dive, due to the lack of upper horn (so the strap pin ends up in a non-optimal place), and the longer neck (because of the saddle position compared to a solid-body bass). Obviously the last point is more pronounced on a long-scale instrument.
  7. Hayle have an excellent brass band. What are you like on Eb bass?
  8. LOL Been up and down to Scotland three times, not going until 2020 now!
  9. Cool. I think an Epi T-Bird would be a good candidate for a retro-fit. It would sort out the neck dive, if nothing else.
  10. Well I think she wrote every bassline ever written but this one sounds terrifically Jamersonish to me!
  11. I had one - fabulous amp! Not too heavy to cart about but loud and with serious booty. and its capable of zing unlike a lot of other older Ashdown ABM's. I would cheerfully have another someday...
  12. It's so sad how many people took up bass because 'everyone else wanted to play guitar' or 'no-one played bass'. There's no difference in 'skill' between bass and guitar IMHO, they just suit different sorts of people and I suspect most bassists become more 'musical' than most guitarists.
  13. Nobody's mentioned the Spectorcore hollow body. What you're after with a modern look..
  14. I came across this the other day in my collection, probably some of the best and most well known dub basslines around , and a few classics from sly and Robbie 🙂
  15. Just looked up the Weber Mywatt-a 200W is up for800€😲. Thank you for the offer btw.
  16. He played and co-wrote on "1234" and was credited on the remix album "Wishful Thinking" as both he and Brian McGee were part of the live band at the time (McGee had replaced Steve Jansen by that point), however he is not credited on and didn't play on "A Secret Wish", their first and most successful album - the bass parts on which were either synthesized, sampled or played by Stephen Lipson, although he was part of the live band at the time of its release.
  17. Bit far from Mid Wales to offer a 'try it out'. You are however in the land of the sensibly priced used Weber Mywatt
  18. I tried the Guild a couple of years back and really didn't feel any major difference with the short scale. But then I might just be plain weird!
  19. I have no experience or knowledge of Xvives Al, but all I will say is that I haven't heard one single glitch from my cheapy Ammoons yet.
  20. Delivers 2 x 3100 Watts into 4 Ohms, 2 x 1600 Watts into 8 Ohms and weighs less than 12 lbs / 5.5 kg Ultimate reliability through revolutionary cool-running High-Density Class-D technology with "near-zero" thermal buildup Ultra-efficient switch-mode power supply for noise-free audio, superior transient response and low power consumption "Zero-Attack" limiters offer maximum output level with reliable overload protection Built-in stereo crossover with low-cut, high-cut and full range mode Detented and illuminated gain controls for precise level setting Precise 4-segment Signal and Limit LEDs to monitor performance XLR and 1/4'' TRS combination input connectors for compatibility with any source Professional twist-lock speaker connectors for ultimate reliability Independent DC, LF and thermal overload protection on each channel automatically protects amplifier and speakers without shutting down the show “Back-to-front” ventilation system prevents thermal buildup for reliable operation 3-Year Warranty Program* Designed and engineered in Germany According to an online review, it's more like 1200W RMS per channel at 8 Ohms and 1800W RMS per channel into 4 Ohms. This has hardly been used and is in very good condition apart from some light scratches on the top (difficult to photograph) from racking. Price is for collection from Milton Keynes. Will post at buyer's cost/risk.
  21. In my experience some basses need more adjustments than others. My Jazz bass always needed regular adjustment and I have adjusted my Thunderbird vintage pros this week (which have a slim neck that feels much like a Jazz). My chunky '81 precision and JMJ mustang have not needed any adjustment this year so far. The orange-handled allen tool described and shown in the photo of the first post is made of Chrome Vanadium steel which I believe is a step up from the manufacturer-supplied allen keys. Also the truss rod tool Fender supply with USA-made instruments has a ball end like this one and I never had any problems with that for adjusting with my Jazz.
  22. Aria spirit PE bass, bought on this very forum. No pics at the moment but google "Aria spirit PE bass" and it is the blue one. Seriously well built, nice and light, superb balance - no neck dive, active electronics. With a 32" scale length it should be a 'killer' but lacks 'bite and aggression' compared to my other basses.
