  1. I got a pair from Mark at Limelight for my Japanese Jazz. Unsurprisingly they match my Limelight fretless perfectly. Decent price too. I think you've had a Limelight fretless haven't you? In which case you already know what they are like.
  2. Apparently a previously unannounced Jack White performance has been scheduled for when my son's band (Mush) are playing. They were already up against Elbow. He reckons they'll be playing to grass.
  3. Big Thief have been the highlight so far for me.
  4. Another chipping in to say I really enjoyed Nick Seymour's bass with Crowded House, despite never really being a fan of the band. Plus I got to see my kids twice in the audience on the footage! Rufus Wainwright was pretty good too.
  5. Albums by the bands Omni and Mush use Musicmaster bass.
  6. King Khan and the Shrines at the Brudenell next Monday. That'll wake me up from any Easter slumbers!
  7. 12 years later (yikes) my DIY one is still going strong.
  8. I bough a Hooker's Green pedal from Ben. Absolutely flawless deal, you can engage with Ben with complete confidence.
  9. I have two racks. One just has my Gallien Krueger Fusion 550. It comes to gigs. The other has a Korg Tuner, Sansamp VT Bass, and a little GK MB200. It comes to rehearsals and gigs. Every now and then I think about taking the MB200 out and putting something else in the space, but I can never think what I need. I'm not really into compressors.
  10. Completely different genres but check out the first Gilbert O'Sullivan album, and songs by Frankie Valli, the Night for example.
  11. Lou Reed's Take No Prisoners is two albums of banter and monologue with the occasional song thrown in. One of my favourite albums of all time.
  12. Yeah, seeing Dinosaur Jr in the early 90s the the Mean Fiddler (I think it was) destroyed my hearing. About 20 years later I thought I'd give him another try and saw J Mascis and the Fog (I think, with Mike Watt on bass, at the Cockpit in Leeds). My ears have never been the same. Hidden in amongst the noise are some great tunes, check out the chords in Repulsion, and Little Fury Things. Can't remember much out the bass parts I'm afraid
  13. The GK MB200 fits the bill and there's one for sale on the forum now.
  14. Very nice , and I'm on holiday near Monmouth from tomorrow for a week. Fortunately there's no room in the car!
  15. First time I've tried it, and it worked really well. I tend not to fiddle too much with my gear whilst playing - just switching the Sansamp off and on depending on the song, tuner on and off, and amp mute. It probably won't be feasible in many places we play, unless i build some sort of stand, but that would just be another thing to carry.
  16. First gig since I replaced my TKS212 with two OneTens. Korg rack tuner, Samsamp RB1, GK Fusion 550, 2 X Barefaced 110s.
  17. It's a well documented fact that during his time in Detroit he drank Yorkshire tea exclusively, always from the same pint pot that was never ever washed. On moving to Los Angeles, some studio kid washed the cup, and as we all know James was never the same again. What's less well known is that the pint pot on display at the Motown Museum is actually a fake, the original having been stolen by Britney Spears who uses it to satisfy her own Yorkshire tea addiction.
  18. I heard he tapped with his left foot when playing simple time, and his right foot when playing compound time. Can anyone verify??
  19. Yeah the Hicons are very good. I bought a batch from OBBM - if they were good enough for him!!
  20. Take care Blue. Martin
