  1. I'd not heard of the Couch ones, shame - as you say - you've got the shipping to factor in. This is the style of Right On one I got - The design worked into the top is really groovy and it's very comfortable.
  2. Very much so. I've got a Right On strap as well, very impressive.
  3. Say what you want about the war, but people knew how to enjoy themselves back then.
  4. I've shared kit at a lot of the gigs I've done, in fact I'd say the majority of gigs have involved in some sharing. I'm not aware of any problems my bandmates have had, and none of my equipment has ever been damaged, and I was bought many a pint as thanks.
  5. I've never needed a spare bass at any kind of gig, pub or otherwise.
  6. Flange used to need analogue tape, and then boffins squished that into a pedal Now we're got, say, multiband distortion in a box, when it would have taken maybe different amps and mics and pedals to create that. So whilst I don't think there are any really new effects, the technology is allowing a people to squeeze a whole studio into something the size of a few fag packets and that's where new sounds are coming from.
  7. When I was looking around at the specs, most retailers who give the nut width (why doesn't everyone ?) agree with you at 1⅝".
  8. I still haven't felt the need to pick up any bass except my SB-2 since I got it, just under 3 months ago. I'm still amazed by it.
  9. Fuzzdog make a kit called the Dirt Dessert which is a version of the Prunes and Custard.
  10. I fancied a finger rest on my Sterling so I stuck a small oblong of scrap black plastic to the similarly-coloured scratchplate with double-sided tape. Worked a treat.
  11. I try to be forgiving of bad performances, but he is really straining. Aside from anything else it sounds like he'd have been a lot happier singing in a different key.
  12. "Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before" "Paint A Vulgar Picture" "That Joke Isn't Funny Any More" "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me." "What Difference Does It Make ?"
  13. I've lost count of the number of people involved with making music who have told me the correct way to coil cables. I'm pretty sure that 99% of them had never asked if I do it that way or, indeed, seen me coil cables. I must look like the kind of person who can't coil cables, I guess.
  14. That's great news, I'm really glad you were as impressed as I was.
  15. By deafening myself playing loud music I now don't have to worry about the finer points of deafening myself playing loud music. Result ! I think...
  16. But tone comes from your fingers, and he's playing with his fingers,...who knows, maybe his fingertone is interfering with the necktone. Too many variables, unless.....

    B. It says on it
  18. "You had one eye on the mirror as you watched yourself make custard And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner, they'd be your partner" It works, but it certainly paints a different picture.
  19. This is true, not all of them are guys !
  20. I don't worry about my onstage sound. I make sure that I can give the person dealing with the sound a DI that sounds the way I want it to. Anything on-stage is just for monitoring. However, if the person doing the sound wants just a straight DI with no whistle and bells then that's that I'll give them. Being heard is more important to me than 'my sound' and it's their job to decide how that's best achieved, on that night, in that venue.
  21. I think I've been DIed almost everytime the bass has bee
  22. "We set sail a year and a day ago Making our way to Kilimanjaro" Kilimanjaro - Teardrop Explodes And also a candidate for a terrible rhyme
