    Feedback for Paul Clifton

    Bought a very nice Genzler amp from Paul and found the whole thing more seamless than something with no seams whatsoever. Quick post and helpful seller. Thanks!

    Yamaha RBX?

    Not sure but Google agrees with Taiwan too. Bit of a thread here: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/247578-yamaha-bb-series-talk-me-through-them-please/?do=findComment&comment=2583931

    Yamaha RBX?

    It's one of the BBs from that era, don't recall the numbering convention but something like a BB604

    Your Worst Gig Ever

    You need to play smaller venues with fewer punters

    Your Worst Gig Ever

    Too many to list but here's a flavour. Surely most of us have experienced some or all of these? The one where, as the set drew towards its climax, we were interrupted and asked to draw the meat raffle. (And won a piece of meat) The one where we ended up soundtracking a fight between two women at a working men's club, not wanting either to up the tension or to go silent. Weirdest jam ever The one where I was dragged out of sick bay (glandular fever) to do a gig, despite my near-constant dribbling and loose grip on consciousness The 'regular' gig where the landlord told us we were brilliant if there were punters, and sh*t if there weren't, irrespective of how it had actually gone. The one where some fruity young music students invited us to 'headline' their gig, so as to borrow lights and sound equipment, then left (with the entire audience) before we started. The one where half the band were on one side of the toilet door and the other half were opposite, stuck behind the pub quiz machine. Stand-off every time someone needed a wee. The one where the football was on the pub's TV at the same time as us The one where we did a spot for a (now long defunct) ultra-local TV station, then were dropped (due to a 'misunderstanding' with the producer) in favour of a piece about Southampton Airport. It wasn't a Southampton TV station, either. The one where the depping drummer played everything a la Vic Reeves' club singer routine ... and as we packed up commented: "I thought that went pretty well." Could be worse. One of my bandmates remembers the landlord at one London venue having to pacify a bloke who had a gun. Another where they made it all the way to a gig in Cornwall, to find themselves double-booked and having to try every other pub in town on spec. And we've had our share of brilliant ones, too. Remember one where the singer had everyone in the pub doing percussion to a spur-of-the-moment Hawkwind improv, and two very nice German ladies insisting we signed their T-shirts. Maybe one for another thread.

    Behringer BD121 - £17 heads up deal!

    For £17 I just picked up a PROPER MULTI EFFECTS PEDAL!!!! Apparently it has chorus, phaser, flanger, tremolo, delay and a pitch shifter. You cannot believe how stoked I am. Only kidding, it's bound to be sh*t, but at that price it's practically free. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Behringer-FX600-Digital-Multi-Effects-Pedal/dp/B000RVWY42

    As far as hare-brained ideas go...

    On a not massively related topic, any idea what bass the Brian is playing in this one?
  12. "Hmm, how can I make this bit different yet better. Oh I know, I'll ... oops. What key is this in again?"

    Do you remember your first bass...

    Awful Satellite P-bass like this one: Cost £75 new. Knowing no better, thought it was good until I tried an actual good one (JV Squier -- later sold for £100 to buy food with). Turns out it was pants all along. Went with a 50W Kay Sound Fashion combo, which went to practices in a wheelbarrow.

    Cover versions of songs with discomforting lyrics

    Isn't there a live version where they sing 'All the girls are very nice, and all the boys are p*ssed'?
