  1. Ha, that'd be a bonus, for sure! To be honest, I'm thinking that, what with last year's shoulder shenanigans, this is a bit of a wake-up call. While no spring chicken (67), there's plenty older than me still prancing about. But I am a bit riddled with arthritis, so this isn't going to go away. In many respects, I've been incredibly lucky - the arthritis has stayed away from hips and knees so far. But I'm already unable to walk far without a marked stoop, and need to use sticks if I'm to walk far without crippling pain. So maybe, just maybe, it's time... I'm certainly not giving up altogether. Will still be trying to get the jazz trio off the ground - C-19 paused that - so there are things to do!
  2. Aaaaaaaand...not yay. Music was fine, no issues, but physical things came back to haunt me. I lasted about 10 minutes standing, and still can't walk properly. So, that's it. I hereby resign from band gigs forever. Sit down stuff only now, if at all... On a more positive note, two guitars, bass and drums. And the Elf and One10 owned it.
  3. Welcome, from Tavistock!
  4. Having been 'resting', as the luvvies say, since NYE 2018, tomorrow sees first rehearsal witha new band. I've depped for them before, so less pressure than there might be, but still a little nerve-wracking after all this time. Long day of practice tomorrow! Would have been today too, but other work got in the way. Excited!
  5. Liked the Cobalts when I had them on my P-bass. The brightness is less of an issue currently as I've no idea if I'll be going back into a rock band or not. If so, I'll be getting another set! Otherwise, D'Addario Chromes are pretty bright too, but also able to do mellow. They're a little stiffer than the Cobalts, though, IME.
  6. Personally, I'd always go Wilkinson, and never ever had a fitting problem, on any Fender/Fender-alike bass. Other than that, I go upwards to Hipshot. But if these work, then they work. I have used similar when cash was tight, and they certainly didn't give any problems.
  7. Me too, but Markbass on its own also very good. Went thusly: MB CMD121H +Ashdown MAG115Deep, CMD + homemade 1x12, LMIII + BF Super 15, CMD +Traveler115, CMD + Traveler 121H, now Elf + BF One10. Lots of love for Markbass, lots of love for BF also!
  8. Entirely agree! I just continue in a vein that makes it even more difficult, and so easier for me to say, "Nah, don't play that..."
  9. Exactly. Uppercase bass. There are a few numbers I like that contain slap, but as far as funk goes give me Rocco's finger funk any day... And no, I can't do it. Nor is my bass equipped for it, as it sounds bad slapping with flats...IMHO.
  10. Various Selmer Treble'n'Bass Combos, then a Roost 1x15 folded horn fed by a Vox AC50 head. Lovely!
