  1. I went to one of JackPlug's gigs and hear this played live. It sounded incredible, it is indeed a powerful and sweet sounding bass and blended tonally superbly with the character of the tracks the band played. When the filter was opened up later in the gig that crispness in the mids and upper frequencies was classic alembic. On a personal level it was great to be able to hear someone playing an alembic bass on a gig so at least I have some idea of what the sound of my own bass is like to the audience. Also Jack Plug is a great player.
  2. I got one from a member here and wondered where is the best place in my signal chain. I use a separate preamp and power amp rig and no effects. I have a walkabout head as a spare so that needs considering too. In my separates rig, should I have it before the input so that i filter out the bad stuff before any thing gets to the input of my preamp, should I have it in the send/return loop or on the output of the preamp before connecting to the power amp.? For the walkabout should it be before the input or in the send/return loop?
  3. Is it played with a b*t plug or a p***s?
  4. I got my Gig Skinz bag for my walkabout head from Bass Direct.
  5. I got my DB last year and had about 4 lessons earlier this year and that has helped me get started with the right stance and fingering. The Simamdl book was recommended to me by another db pro player and im working through that though it is quite boring. I also use the Ireal book app, take the bass line put if the tracks and play along so i get to play along with the score. Im not a strong reader but it helps to play along.
  6. A guitarist friend of mine contacted me yesterday for advice. Her studio landlord has a Black Fender Precision Lyte bass and a Fender Rumble combo that he wants to sell to raise money for charity and wants an idea of how much it's worth. From what i can see on the photo is that is is made in Japan and the serial number starts with T and comes with a Fender case. This isn't a for sale posting as it will be sold at a charity event not on here. Any advice on pricing will be most welcome. Thanks
  7. All my basses get used regularly for practice, rehearsals and gig action.
  8. Trade not memtioned so just wondered if you would you be interested in a trade for a PJB M-300?
  9. The hardest tracks I have tried to learn to play are, Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy, Beyond the seventh galaxy by return to forever and Slam the Clown by Alain Caron. I'm sure there are a array of bass lines beyond my scope but these are the hardest ones I've actually tried to learn.
  10. Hard to pick an ultimate moment but one right up there of my proudest bass moments was when I recorded my band's version of "I shot the Sheriff" for our album. It was a one take live recording at a concert we did and only my take on the bass ended up on the finished album, everyone else re-dubbed their parts in the studio. Then the icing came on the cake when the producer showed me a letter from Marley's publishers stating how they loved the bass on the track! As this was my first ever reggae track playing bass on a commercial album and Aston Barrett was my inspiration for taking up music it meant a heck of a lot to me.
  11. 😁😁 thanks but as it happens I already have one as a backup. However if you are offering to get it me for Christmas, I would not be so rude as to refuse such a kind gesture Clarky. 🙂
  12. I did my first gig with my DB (EUB) a few months back and decided to stand as it was only two tracks I was doing. I didn't find any problems with doing that however I did find that two tracks was probably my limit since I haven't got enough stamina in my hands yet to do a whole gig on DB but I'm working towards that. Maybe once I get a better grip of my intonation from standing I will try sitting.
  13. mine too for 5 stringer as you can probably tell
  14. i do depending on the venue. it also helps to keep the songs we play being played by the venue's DJ
