  3. Sold sold sold! 1998 Warwick Thumb bolt on 6 string bass Basslines pickups fitted in factory Built in Germany Active/passive push pull volume knob Pickup blend knob Stacked bass/treble knob Warwick strap locks recently replaced - they’re very secure Weight: approx 6 kg Comes with Warwick hard case Neck: wenge Fretboard: wenge Body: ovangkol Frets: 24 brass Nut: Just-A-Nut II Condition: great. There are a few dings but nothing major. I tried to show them in pictures as much as possible. Location: Brighton I would prefer collection only, but we can arrange something if you’re far away. UK only. £1150! I’ve decided to go through the painful decision of parting ways with my lovely ‘98 6 string Warwick Thumb BO. The only reason why I’m letting this go is to help fund a new Vigier, and I simply can’t justify hanging onto too many basses nowadays. I’ve owned it since 2007 and it’s served me very well in that time. It’s only been gigged a few times, so most playing has been at home - in a smoke free house. It's just had a set up, clean and new set of strings, the frets are now super shiny. I used a few different Music Nomad products on it, it's come up really nicely. Tone on this beastie is great, it’s got that classic Warwick sound that I love, with a nice broad range of dynamics. For tappers and such, the action is nice and low making it a nice and easy to play. It’s not too low to cause any buzz, and it still allows you to really dig in when playing finger style - I’m quite an aggressive player so really appreciate being able to really get some good attack on the strings without any farting or buzzing. There are a couple of dings but nothing major, I’ve tried to highlight them as much as possible in the pictures. I can give you my strap if you want it, it’s an old leather one. If not, that’s all good!

  10. My band has been struggling to break into local venues and we played two gigs last year. By chance we got ourselves an agent (our guitard met her when seeing a band she represented at a local pub). We played a gig last week (arranged by her) where she saw us for the first time, and we now have eight gigs lined up so far this year. Although she is taking a small cut, she is arranging a fee that incudes her payment so there is no downside for us at all. Result!

  11. You have to teach yourself. The 'learning how' is quite simple: notes, note values, accidentals, key signatures and rhythm. Could teach it in a couple of sessions. Learning to actually DO it is just sitting at home in a room banging away for years!.

  12. I'm no fan of theirs, only ever bought their records as nostalgic presents for my brother who now lives abroad, but the documentary is a good watch. If you hate their personalities, and I can't blame you for that, you still can't help but admire the hard work, determination, song writing and seizing of the moment. It really shows the band as a group of mates who tried to start a band and just stuck their neck out for one gig where a chance encounter got them a record deal. It's in BBC iPlayer at the moment, worth an hour and a half. Some great 90's pop songs from the days before the internet ruined everything

  20. I am not going to denigrate either of the experts on this but those old Boogie cabs, whether this one or the 2x15 diesel are positively awesome for bass. They may not be modern and light but they are briiliant.

  21. It’s pretty cool. I’ve just ordered the Sonuus G2M V3 so will try it with my bass hopefully tomorrow. I had loads of fun last night figuring stuff out. Took a while to get my head around one of the more in-depth modulation sources. It’s a really good way to get acquainted with synthesis. What I’m finding especially instructive is being able to shape the envelopes precisely; that’s always a bit fiddly when using envelope-controlled filters on bass guitar. The only downside for me is that some features are currently only accessible via the editor software, though I have an idea of how to squeeze a few more into the shift mode and so will suggest them to Moog. It’s made me realise that I need to learn more about MIDI. If anyone has any pointers on how I can send specific MIDI CCs from my keyboard (with specified values between 0 and 127) then I’m all ears. I should probably get some kind of MIDI foot controller so I can jump to presets I’ve created. @Bo0tsy, look into getting the CP251 too so you can manipulate the envelope out signal on the MF-101 and then feed it back into the cutoff jack.

  24. Like the deposit on my daughter's house which she will then let me live in? That was kind of the plan. Actually my excuse is the Brexit economic meltdown will see us wheeling barrows of money to buy a set of strings before long, so I'd better shift it all now.

  26. I think it's a great investment in time if you mean to perform, and I find it fun , completely absorbing, a bit like sitting down to enjoy reading a book. Also, you never know when you might need it. A few months back I arranged to try out/audition with a jazz orchestra, and I told them beforehand that I could read basic bass clef (i.e. not up the dusty end), if very slowly, but I mainly played from memory having first learnt the parts. No problem they said, just come along and do what you can. When I did turn up, someone plonked a music score on my lap and we were off. As the bass lines were relatively simple, I just about managed to keep up note wise, and also remember the notation symbols, having read a book years ago about how to read scores. It could have been a car-crash two hours, but I managed to leave at the end with at least some dignity...

  29. I’ve never used them myself - I’ve always thought of them as a DJ / dance music producer type place. However, they are long established - their shop has been there for as long as I can remember, perhaps 20 years. George

  30. No. I bought these 16” as a change then decided to go 18”. The originals on the 320 were the 17” which I had restored and put back on. Phew! I’m tyred:-)

  31. Doesn't sound pretentious at all, it's a great invention. I wish I had more time to dedicate to reading, whenever I practice sight reading I see massive improvements in my playing and I also think it's good for cognitive function in general. I'm off to steam some kale and put on some spandex to get ready for yoga.

  32. I only use limiters, and find the zoom one fine. It doesn't add any noise and feels very natural. I haven't played with the compressors yet but initial impressions are that they seem quite adjustable. It's good that you can adjust the signal chain and reorder the order of the pedals too.

  35. It was a pretty daft idea in the first pace, keeping the 'C' scale as a reference, and ignoring the black notes. Once they became 'allowed' (by the church establishment, I believe..?), the notes should all have been given individual , non-ambiguous, names, so would span 11 notes (A-L...) instead of 7 (A-G...) presently. There are so many instruments that don't have a distinction (guitars, basses, slide trombones, chromatic accordions and harmonicas, plus all the violin family and more besides...). One would need to keep keys as such, for harmonic reasons, but not use sharps, flats or naturals any more, just the unambiguous note name. Too late now, I realise, but it was a daft idea, and a missed trick, I say.

  38. More generally, would anyone claim learning to read language "stifled their creativity"? It's the same with music. A lot of defensiveness around the topic in my experience.

  41. There's a story about Jimi Hendrix appearing on Top of the Pops in 1967 to perform/mime Purple Haze, only for the technician to put on Simon Smith and his Amazing Dancing Bear... I would have liked to have seen that, if it's true.

  45. Setting up a PA desk is different. The last thing you want is to have clipping at the input stage, so that procedure would be more or less correct, at least as far as the individual channels is concerned. However, a good desk would not have the 0dB setting the max, either on the individual channels or any of the outputs. 0dB would typically be at least 10dB below maximum. Also, you wouldn't start with both the desk outputs and the power amp attenuators at 0dB. Doing so might result in the input gains being too low for acceptable signal to noise ratio. A knowledgeable engineer uses the input LED readout to be sure that the applied gain puts the signal strength in the Goldilocks zone.
