  1. This was a bit of fun to make. Not exactly an original approach and has been done on YT before but I thought I'd have a go at making a piece of music from one single note and a few pitch pedals. The photo video and the walkthrough of how it was made below it.
  2. Really depends on the tone an individual player is looking for. Rounds of any sort are too bright and sparkly for me on a fretless bass, but give me a set of Labella 760s or D'Addario Chromes and they give me just the right amount of brightness that I want. Both those sets also have a fullness of tone I have never heard from a set of rounds. I'd say don't just take someone else's word for it. Experiment with different string types. It might open your eyes or even ears.
  3. I think that was covered earlier. The mass produced fretless basses have finger boards that are mass produced too. Rather than setting up an individual line for unmarked boards it's easier to just put some plastic inserts in some boards for fretless which is always going to be the minority.
  4. Beautiful bass and beautiful playing. Top marks.
  5. There's one choice missing in the second vote; "I'm so old I can't remember". πŸ˜„
  6. That is a thing of beauty. I like the look of the neck profile as well. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  7. For what you are talking about I'd go to Alan too. He's able to offer a lot more flexibility. I feel the same about the switches on my Finn. Never use them. They offer series/parallel/single coil. I like the fatter tone of the parallel so that's where they stay. If all you want is a fat mid why not think about a Uni Pre preamp. Not the filters of the EQ01 but plenty of sweep in the mid territory and control over set frequencies for treble and bass. IIRC the MC pickups are best paired with the filter preamp, as Wal do with theirs. The MC pickups are individual pickups per string.

  9. Amazing what you can do with cut and paste these days. However it was made it works really well. πŸ‘
  10. It's not just guitars. I was sitting in our local tyre centre having the tyres on the car changed and a bloke I know came in and asked them to check his tyre pressures. He's a retired teacher as well so not stupid. I took the opportunity to learn from the aforementioned YouTube videos and now I find a real sense of achievement when I've set a bass up and it feels just right. There are a lot of people who just don't feel that confident at touching a bass and that's fine. The problem is that some 'techs' can't really produce a good result either and I'm sure a lot of us have had experience of that.
  11. probably into the dressing room to explain to her what the song was all about πŸ˜„
  12. I think this is the first looped piece I have recorded with Loopy HD and the KMI Soft Step 2. Great things to use together. Each individual track can also be recorded separately in Cubasis on the iPad allowing easy mixing. Anyway, more laid back ambience for your delectation.
