  1. I am a Jazz man and these 2 at Bass Direct are driving me mad at the moment. I dare not visit because I know I ould come back with one. Any BCer's played them, or similar?

  2. Fancy a trade for a ? with cash. Pick up only.
  3. Fabulous man I have had the pleasure of supporting and having a beer with 3 times now. when he played the Robin the other week his Jazz sig bass gave up the ghost and he had to use the sound guys 70's P which luckily he had at the venue. I didn't think he carried a spare ... incredible.
  4. My '97 US standard Jazz is worth its weight in gold. I've tried everything from Sadowsky to Smallpox and they are not fit to lace the boots of her.
  5. [quote name='thegallery' post='1364776' date='Sep 6 2011, 11:05 PM']Hi I know we are all different, and i can only apologise again for the way you were treated by myself, I had so much to do, and i really thought that you were just in browsing as many people do. If you are ever around again, pop in and I will apologise in person. i did notice the Wal, well hung up alex[/quote] You should try doing a real job mate ... Pressure ... feeling grumpy ??? I wish the only decisions I had to make in my working life was who is allowed to try a Wal. Pathetic ...
  6. I was Under 13 British Tumbling Champion in 1979 and I was only 11. He can shove that up his arse as well while we are at it.
  7. [quote name='retrohelix' post='1353178' date='Aug 26 2011, 11:21 PM'][/quote] + 1000,00000,000000,000000 Prob a bit of Xanadu rehearsal to boot. I have had the pleasure of supporting The Blockheads 3 times and enjoying the company of and several beers with Norm at the end of the night. One of the nicest blokes I have ever met. I have spent a good few hours in his company and never talked basses, other than to get the headstock of my fave jazz signed by him. He is far too interesting and amusing to talk about basses with.
  8. I am fortunate enough to have 2 great Fender Jazz basses and a Ric, all of which are passive. I have dabbled with active basses, most notably a Marcus sig which I kept the neck and sold the active body on and sources a passive body. I tried a few Sadowsky basses yesterday and was massively disappointed as the most expensive ones didn't match up the feel and playability of my bitsa Fender Jazzes with wizzard pups. I get a great active tone by digging my fingers in a bit harder or occasionally a pic for a few punk covers. All I want to do during gigs is perhaps roll a bit of tone off for certain songs or parts of songs. Anything else defeats to object of a simple instrument IMO.
  9. We do sound and lights and unless its a few flights of stairs or half a mile trek to the stage we can do Full 2K PA 1 bass and rig. 2 guitar and rigs. 3 keyboard. 4 vocal mikes. 1 electronic drum kit. x2 powered monitors lights. selection of assorted plastic birds. Full band soundcheck. Usually about an hour. We all multi-task. My bass rig and sounsheck takes about 5 mins max. Packing away is another story though ....
  10. I was going to offer a kit-kat for trade and money your way.
  11. The tension on my string through is far better than my top loaded Jazz. Same strings, gauge, set ups etc... Infact my string through has a Badass III on and when first fitted I tried top loaded and it was a different bass in a bad way. So I went string through again after a few minutes and normal service was resumed. I know there is no science to this, but I know how I like my bass to feel and I get that string through. Don't know if I would risk a future bass that wasn't string through.
  12. Much love for Wizards here and much deserved.
  13. [quote name='bobogib' post='1320892' date='Jul 29 2011, 10:05 PM']Have not got a clue what I am after yet. I'm limited by budget, probably £200 max so looking more a second hand, just so I can dip my toe. Musical taste varies massively so would need something relatively versatile.[/quote] Prob a Jazz, generally thiner necks and brighter tones, a nicely set up MIM should be in your budget. Resist a plectrum and get your fingers going. Good luck.
  14. You can do both ... but ...Bass is Best.
  15. Wow, If only this had frets, a maple neck, pearl inlays and tort scratchplate ... Seriously though ... a fretted one of these with the slim 62 neck would be the ultimate bass for me.
  16. It's all in the fingers ... not the bass ... dig in and your bass cuts through... simples ...
  17. Norm is a God .. Man and Bass. I have had the pleasure a few times.
  18. Tech 21 VT Bass pedal. Worth it's weight in gold.
  19. [quote name='chrismuzz' post='1307169' date='Jul 17 2011, 10:26 PM']I'd look at the Tech 21 offerings, they go from a very nice mild warm tubey overdrive, all the way up to dirty angry distortion![/quote] Yes to this, I love mine ...
  20. [quote name='Happy Jack' post='1281129' date='Jun 24 2011, 03:30 PM']What about the string spacing?[/quote] Mmmmmnnnnnnn ..... string
  21. [quote name='wateroftyne' post='1279709' date='Jun 23 2011, 03:21 PM']Behold! (This doesn't really do them justice. In context.. a diminutive Italian donning these trews, surrounded by a sea of old blokes in Levis and shirts, was remarkable.)[/quote] Fantastic! I did try and Google a picture at work to no avail earlier. You really had to be there for full effect. Great name for a band btw from Skankdelvar whether he knows it or not, [b]Kenny Passarelli's Magnificent Trousers[/b]
