  1. Hello from the US! Just wanted to update everyone on my affiliations. As of 1June 2018 I am the Nashville,TN USA rep for Tech 21 as well as the sales and operations for Clover and Esh basses (NBE Corp) in the Americas. So if you have questions about these products, feel free to reach out and I'll be as helpful as I can. Thanks, and hope you all have a great day!
  2. Hmmmm....you never know. But if you won't ask....
  3. Jolana is back. I rep them in the US and the Americas. Look for some cool reissues in the near future. Check out NBE Corp. for more.
  4. Aria made some, Yamaha and early Ibanez.
  5. I'm going to recommend the Quilter Bass Block head paired with a Quilter cab. Small, lightweight and powerful.perfect for what you are looking for.
  6. Hello everyone! I took a hiatus from all the forums to figure out where my next move would be. Over the past two years I built all the Social media for NS Design, and it was an honor to work with Ned Steinberger. I also worked with the heirs to Phil Kubicki to keep his legacy alive. I worked with designers John Backlund and Bill Compeau on the J. Backlund Design JBD-800B as well as the Ark Instruments/Kerry Davis Guitars Tom Richards signature Relayer bass. Today I'm proud to announce that I now am the sales and marketing director for Clover and Esh basses here in the Americas as well as an artist and rep for Moses Graphite/Sound Composites Sonosphere bass and guitar cabs. I am also the rep for Jolana, which is making it's comeback debut. I would love to hear from any Clover and Esh users here about your experience and love for the instruments, as well as what you think of the Sonosphere cabs. Happy Easter everyone. Tom Richards
  7. [quote name='bobmartin' timestamp='1453127137' post='2956577'] But no Shoulder, or outrigger(s)? [/quote] At the moment, similar to how NS and others do theirs with a tripod or a single peg available. As for sound clips, stay tuned to NAMM. I'll try and get some up and posted from the show this week. tom
  8. Hall D Booth 2683. Presenting the Willcox Stylus Electric Upright, powered by Lightwave Optical Pickup system. Basschat is the first group to see this, because I like you guys best. file:///.file/id=6571367.10412861
  9. Gun case or Keyboard case. Unless you have a custom guy over there, that's it. I don't think Gibson even made a hard case for them, as the graphite tube/wood combo is supposed to be durable and stable. Ned even made a video where he stands on the neck of the bass between two chairs to show how strong the whole thing is. A good gig bag should be enough. Unless, of course, you are checking it on an airplane....
  10. Well, its that time of year boys and girls. What bass would you like to wake up to on Christmas morning? Place your desire(s) below. Maybe he will read this list.

  12. You guys make some good points. But I am not going to go cheap because I have to schlep it nor because the house guy always takes ya through his personal DI box. Like all things there is a diminishing return at some point. But wouldn't it make sense to save up a few more poundnotes for the Mesa 800 with the 2 1X12 cabs then just grab the Behringer?

  14. Well, figured I would use the British words but okay cable. I will argue that the bass has less to do then we all wish. Marcus, Victor, Jaco, dUG, and so many more use separate pre-amps. Heck, Marcus pretty much was the poster child for the pre. So then is the tone the bass ir the pre? Cabs and amps can really color your tone. Hartke is known for its mid scoop. Markbass has its "darker" tonality. Ampeg has its "classic" tonality. Play a p bass through each of them set with all the knobs at noon and it will sound different. But I hope my bigger point rings true. Investing more in your amp/pre/cabs makes a lot of sense and will mean more to your sound then the same investment in an instrument.
