  14. I want to try a set of Pirestro Obligato's for 3/4 size bass. Have you a set to sell? If so send me details / usage / condition / price. Send pics of windings. PM me. Many thanks.
  15. Gareth Hughes: What a brilliant idea! Years ago I bought a double bass that someone---not a bass repairer--let us say more of a DIY 'bodger'-- completely ruined the bass. So being the state that the bass is in I will cut up and make a top bout for the Eminence. Thanks for the post.
  16. What is the most accurate dial thickness caliper to buy? Best make? (To thickness the top of a DB / Guitar).
  17. On a gig I used to put my DB on the ribs on the floor--if no corner available. On a few occasions someone in the band would walk into the bass if it was on the floor. A DB player I know put his bass down after the gig. The band were packing up--a band member tripped over the bass--broke the neck of the bass--bass player not a happy bunny. I use a stand--no hassle. (Of course put the stand in a good place).
  18. My budget? Not sure--nothing expensive---buying on the second hand market.
  19. Thanks guys for your info, much appreciated. As I play double bass I am looking to buy a fretless short scale BG---to get as close to the DB sound as possible---so will be looking for a short scale hollow body BG. Does anybody know who makes the deepest (width) hollow body short scale BG? The bigger the depth of the body the deeper the sound of a BG? Those of you who play a 5 string bass how often do you use the 5th string (B?) Worth having?
  20. Is there a notable difference in tone between a short scale 30" and a long scale 34" electric bass guitar--that is if both had the same strings / same amp settings / same pickups? (I expect the woods used would have a bearing on this.) Would the short scale have perhaps a more 'fatter / rounded' tone? Solid body v semi-hollow body make a difference?

  22. Thanks for your replies guys--much appreciated. I think I will keep what I have and adapt as Duckyincarnate suggested saving £££'s.
  23. I have a very good D/B padded case / cover--made by Mooradin. My only problem I have is when putting the cover over the scroll I have to make a big effort to put the bass inside--myself not tall. (If I wore big healed boots probably solve the problem but not going that way!) The Mooradian zip does not go all the way to the top of the case. Is there a make of padded case/cover that the zip goes all the way over the scroll? Do you know the make of a well padded case / cover that opens 'suitcase' style?
  24. Agree with you Clarky. Milt & Ray knew how to 'lay it down'. Both were bought up in the days when there were no amps and had to project their acoustic sound. So solid.
