  1. Pete, thanks for the reply. A while back a tribute band called the Explosive Light Orchestra played quite near me, unfortunately I couldn't make it but heard they were top notch....not your band by any chance? Long shot I know, but I'd be willing to make a charitable donation (charity of your choice) of say £20 for the first cello part to Evil Woman and Ma Ma Belle? Cheers, Gary
  2. Site is saying cassapete cannot receive messages? Any clues?
  3. So my band, me and my electric Cello want to do some ELO. I've already got a Piano reduction but want to avoid playing the bass piano part if I can as it differs from the string parts hugely. Does anyone know if the Cello parts were ever published? Ta, Gary
  4. Afternoon fellow musos. I've just bought an electric Cello and my band will be doing some ELO going forward. Does anyone know if the Cello (or string) parts are available? Thanks :)
  5. I've had a VM Jazz and a VM Precision. Jazz was good, Precision poor and sold it on quite quickly. I've also had a poor MIM and a good MIM (Roger Waters) so it very much depends on the individual instrument down the lower end of the range as the QC is probably not of the same calibre as at the other end. My favourite budget Bass was my Chinese made CVP, spot on quality and playability, but I've just bought a Revalation Jazz for under £200 and it's really really good.

  7. My birth year bass....I could always flog a kidney
  8. [quote name='gary mac' timestamp='1501181451' post='3343195'] Two new basses, what a great day for you [/quote] Cheers Gary, yeah had lots of fun today!
  9. [attachment=250104:20170727_200632.jpg] So the Blockhead is a Bass Collection copy of Norm's '62 Jazz (the reliced one), and very nice it is too! The relic job look authentic and the shoreline gold looks good. It has a relatively low action and is very resonant - 'zingy' like a Jazz should be. I think the PUP's are Seymours and the relicing even includes the slight rounding off of the corners of both pups I'm guessing to replicate Norms finger wear? Whatever, it makes them very comfy to rest on! All in all as good a Jazz as I've played and better than most. Right now onto the Revalation....For under £200 quid delivered (Rich Tone Music) its amazing. I went for the aged white version, Maple board with blocks, lovely looking headstock and the build quality is I'm pleased to say very good. Out of the box, the action is medium to low and it slaps like a good 'un! The entwistle pups appear to be high output, I had to turn the amp down after switching from the Blockhead. The only slight issue is that with the bridge pup rolled right off, so neck pup only, the output on E and A strings is very weak almost inaudible (D&G fine) but with both pup's all fine across the range? I'm looking forward to giving them both an outing on Sunday to see how they compare to my P basses in a gig situation. Honestly for the money the Revalation is just that!
  10. As a fan of Orange Amplification and having just become aware of the Orange O Bass I was naturally wondering if any of the good peeps of Bass Chat had any experience of them - good, bad or indifferent? Ta LC
  11. +1 for Mark at Classic and Cool Guitars. My '63 P heavy relic is a peach!
  12. I think this would go in an instant if you were willing to post fella, lovely looking thing!
  13. Looks like a cracker! I'm still loving my '63 P in Burgundy Mist I had from Mark 18 months or so ago. GLWTS
  14. If you make a mistake - glare at the drummer, works every time! I don't generally drink alcohol at a gig coz it makes me need a slash at the most inopportune moments! Remember Pino Palladino is unlikely to be in the audience, stick your shoulders back - SMILE and enjoy!
