    I have to say I use reverb exactly like that, when I experiment with sound and atmospheric textures. I have never thought of using it (in lower doses) as an always on effect, I will try that.
  2. I think it’s when you’re trying to sell your bass. Lots of mojo 🤓

    Geddy's Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass

    Placed an order today, at £15 it sounds silly not to. Don’t really mind when it arrives, as long as it does (before I lose my eyesight 😂 😎)

    Does anyone have a Steinberger Spirit XT?

    I was following this thread but only recently got a bat headless bass. Less popular end of the market, it’s a Hondo Alien bass. In any case, I am interested in getting an extension for it. Is there a guide to make your own? Or where can I get a ready made one from? I may get a leg rest instead/as well. Can these be bought on their own?
  5. Nope, the postage is £99.99.
  6. 😳😵 Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be careful with mine (essentially never change the strings again 😂)
  7. Yes, if there is a bolt on Hohner, then I would think that should be the OP’s starting point!
  8. I was looking for a travel bass too and wanted a Hohner (I would have kept it in one piece though, it’s to keep in the camper van). I ended up getting a Hondo Alien bass, it’s dead ugly, but similar footprint, and it is a bolt on. An additional bonus for me is that is has an aluminium neck, which I think is great for a travel bass (albeit heavier). Maybe an option for you instead of hacking a nice bass?

    Stringing an acoustic bass

    Well, it would appear I am the victim of some clever marketing ploy. I learnt something today!

    Stringing an acoustic bass

    Stop right there. yes, you need special strings for acoustic basses.

    Bass for REAL bass players! 😁

    I have a creaky door that sounds a bit like that.

    Damn, that’s some overhang!

    @pete.young I think that is the tipping point where you need to decide if the cab should in fact go on top of the head 😳
