  1. Thanks for the kind words, we certainly don't claim to be great musicians but we all definitely love what we are doing, and we have so much fun when we do the occasional gig. 😊
  2. I usually state in the ads that we don't mind whether the person is male or female, just so long as they suit our music 😊
  3. Can you not relocate down Shropshire? it's a beautiful part of the world πŸ˜‰
  4. You are so right, the frontman in our "Feelgood" band definitely has a larger than life personality, whenever people start videoing us on their phones, he closes in on them and sings straight into the lens, he wanders around with his wireless mic, sometimes goes behind the bar or even out in the street. Here's an example:
  5. Sorry Lozz, I should have said that they were the Kent Armstrongs, for Β£49.95, you really can't go wrong
  6. Thanks, I will check all the links in the morning
  7. I currently play in a band that plays Dr Feelgood material, we don't go out as a tribute band, but we do nail the sound and our frontman is Lee to a tee! Unfortunately for us, although good for him , he has met a woman and is moving about 250 miles away, he has agreed to do a few gigs every now and then with us and is prepared to travel, for them. Because we will only gig around six times a year, I am putting a new band together with the drummer and a guitarist from one of my previous bands, we are all experienced musician's with a ton of songs we all know well and could be up and running almost immediately, but despite having ads on Join My Band and BandMix etc for a few months now, we are having no joy at all, so how do you guys go about finding a good frontman?
  8. I used to put CS 62's in all my builds but decided to try these in my last build because the specs were the same. They sounded EXACTLY the same to my ears and at less than half the price of CS 62's, they are an absolute steal imo πŸ˜‰
  9. Sorry, I don't need any more basses, so my missus tells me. 😐
  10. Thanks for the kind comments Lozz, it definitely is a lovely bass. The only reason I'm selling it is because I have two other precisions that I assembled with custom parts, and both have Jazz necks fitted to them, which I prefer. The neck on this one is actually very nice, not too chunky like some P's, but as I have two other P's in my collection, I just can't justify keeping this one. πŸ€”
  11. FENDER AMERICAN STANDARD PRECISION BASS (2016) SOLD!!! Β£950 (Including Shipping) or Β£925 Collected I purchased this bass BRAND NEW a year ago from PMT. It has never left the house and only been played a handful of times in my smoke-free home. It is in fantastic condition and comes complete with the Fender hard case. It can be seen and tried at my home in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. NO TRADES
  12. "We probably did do it first... The reason is simple.... the silk wrap helps lock down the string as it’s wound around the machine post. At the ballend it’s cosmetic and we got rid of it a few years back. Hope this helps!" So all the strings without wraps are likely to slip then? I've never had a problem with them slipping
  13. Why do most bass strings have silk wraps, and why? Personally, I can't stand them but luckily for me I use D'Addario Nickels which don't have wraps, but on one of my basses I put Ernie Ball Flats on and they have a sickly purple wrap which I hate, although they do sound good. I find that after a while they start fraying and particles get everywhere especially at the bridge end. Is it just me that hates silk wrap on strings? πŸ€”
  14. Nope! Had it with guitarists and drummers too, don't know about bassists though because I've never had the need to advertise for one. Speaking for myself, if I respond to an ad and the person replies with more info, I always rely back asap, even if it's not for me, that way, they can cross me off the list and move on.
  15. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  16. I've just about had my fill with JoinMyBand, we have an ad on for a singer at the moment, FOUR replies almost immediately, I reply to them immediately, five days later, nothing back from them? Then this morning I receive another message. And this is the link in the message: I give up!!!
  17. I do sort of like the roadworn look but only if its genuine, or at least if its done properly like the limelights which are pretty convincing
  18. Yep! doesn't do it any favours at all does it?

  20. Thanks for all the advice, but I've gone for a Boss FV500H, I know some people have said that it is quite large, but apart from my Boss tuner which is plugged into the dedicated tuner socket on my amp, the volume pedal will be the only pedal I will use so its size shouldn't be a problem.
