  2. Selling my Boss 'Acoustic Simulator AC-2' foot pedal. Used condition. £40 posted. PM me.
  3. Great topic and answers guys. I am thinking of going down the mic route--for my ears the best sound to get from the DB is the mic. I agree with 'Fretless'------'Double bass, the way to madness and poverty'. To add to this I also play banjo & guitar---triple madness and poverty----------------------------------------------
  4. I want to blend 2 separate pickups on a double bass. I have an amp which has 2 separate channels--each channel having their own controls. Question is: a) Is it a good idea to plug the 2 separate pickups into the 2 separate amp channels-- or b) Purchase a blender and plug the pickups into that? Would both a) & b) do the same job? Ps--Electrics not my thing!

  8. Looking for plain GD and wound AE gut stings to buy. In good condition. What have you? PM me with details. Thanks.
  9. Hi Marvin Did you sell those 2 sets of Thomastic 'Belcantos' DB strings advertised in May? gypsyjazzer
  10. Thanks for the replies so far. Hi 'K'---How old were the secondhand gut strings when you bought them? Good tone on your bass? Hi Dan--- Like you I have tried two different sets of Innovation strings. I should imagine that they are probably near the gut sound--(Never heard a live DB with guts on though. ) I found Innovation strings quite a good sound--easy to play--but peg winding issues--the windings tend to fray if you put them on another bass--and they do not hold their tuning to well. Do gut strings hold their tuning like metal strings? Do all makes of synthetic strings have tuning issues? Call me 'Old Fashioned' but for me gut is the way to go!.
  11. Two questions regarding gut strings: a) Would you buy a secondhand set of gut strings? Lack of tone? To worn? b) Interesting question: Anybody tried gut strings on an EUB?
  12. Ehrlund pickup wanted. PM me-with price.

  14. Some good info here on 'The Steel Guitar'---both lap & pedal. Over the years I have 'dabbled' on lap steel---(I don't have a lifetime to try the pedal steel!) Tried various tunings on the lap steel--both 6 string and 8 string). All tunings have their pros & cons. My recommendation--(for what it's worth). If you go for the lap steel--is to start on the 6 string--get the knowledge of the 6 string then move up to the 8 string to 'expand' what you have learnt on the 6 string. The first thing I would do is to listen to the style of music you want to play--find the guys that play that style of music---and find out what tuning they are using. Search the web. Something I have often wondered--the guys that play the 3 & 4 string necks---are they musically proficient on all the necks? or just know certain tunes / certain licks on each tuning??
