  2. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1397663912' post='2426235'] I'd suggest ignoring any legal and/or financial aspect, and simply wish them luck in their new ventures, playing the 'magnanimity' card, but that's just me. I couldn't be bothered with hassles for even a modest return, let alone a small one. I understand the notion of 'principle', but wouldn't whip myself (hard...) over such matters. Move on, whistling..? [/quote] Thats pretty much the top and bottom of it - the only thing i'm bothered about really is getting an album credit, and with being left fairly in the dark about releases I wanted to cover my back more than anything.
  3. Update: So it seems me, the guitarist and drummer who also performed on the 3 tracks, are being kept in the dark about the release. Being that the 'band' (now a duo) have less than 500 likes on facebook and no real fan base, I have assumed this record label is not all that it seems. I really don't think they have the facilities to re-record the tracks - as it was me who actually set up the recording sessions with a friend of mine for free as a favour, so no doubt it will be our recorded parts being released. Just setting up a PPL account now to get started - clearly something i should have done sooner!
  4. I have recently left a band, of which no members have singed any band agreements or contracts. A few months previously we recorded three original tracks with the intent to release an EP, again, no contracts for the recording process were made. Now i have left the band, the singer is apparently in talks with a label of some sort to 'release' the EP - details are sketchy at best. What i'd like to know if at all possible is - do I have any ownership of my recorded bass parts on this upcoming EP? I have copies of the stems as digital files that show when the files were created etc, and also a few images of the recording sessions themselves. And in regards to any Musicians Union comments that may appear - i'm in the process of joining due to this problem, but my application will take at least another week to complete.

  6. DR are a brand i've always meant to check out - but never have! Along with GHS, Thomastik, Elixir and La Bella....i've never used rounds for a while since I stuck flats on my P bass. With roundwound strings i pretty much kept to Ernie ball, but to me they sound way too zingy when new, then sort of dull down fairly quickly - I really don't care for that super bright initial 'zing' that turns everything into a slappathon, I just want something even sounding/feeling.
  7. Hi, I'm currently looking for a new set of strings for my 35" scale 5 string Sadowsky (M5-24), its currently strung with Rotosound swing bass 66 strings (gauge: .40 .60 .80 .100 .125), and feel quite harsh on my fingers. The primary role of this bass is to be 'modern' sounding (the old school vibe being covered by my flatwound-strung Fender P-5), and ideally I would like a set that is the same gauge as the Lakland flats on my P bass (gauge: .45 .65 .85 .106 .128). I had originally planned on getting a set of D'addario's 'balanced tension' strings, however it seems they don't stock a 5 string set, any suggestions on sets matching my requirements? What strings do it for you? Thanks, Martyn.
  8. http://www.roland.co.uk/products/productdetails.aspx?p=1000 Don't know if this is old news or not - couldn't find anything relating to it via the search function. Anyway - it seems the VB-99 has been discontinued, maybe this means there is an update or new fangled product looming on the horizon? And MAYBE, this new product launch of theirs will hold the answer: http://www.rolandconnect.com/ Thoughts?
  9. I had the chance to play basschat user Dry_Stone's VJ96 a little while ago; I can echo the sentiments already spoken, they are indeed excellent basses for the money! Absolutely blows the similar squire fretless out of the water. Very light, but certainly not cheap sounding at all - the neck had a great feel, and the hardware is solid.
  10. I have a Fender American Standard 5 string P-Bass - Strung with Lakland Joe Osborn flatwound strings - sounds mighty fine, never had any complaints or reasons to upgrade, and the neck and string spacing feels VERY comfortable to me. Sure, i need to play a bit lighter on the B but its still acceptable for the amount of time i spent on that string compared to the others. I also have a Sadowsky M5-24, and this serves as my modern sounding active instrument while the P is very much my 'old school' vibe bass, and i find myself using the Fender an awful lot more!
  11. The Warwick Thumb SC 6 was reviewed in a recent issue of Bass Guitar Magazine (Issue 96 - October 2013). Its price was a lofty £4749, and they suggest you contact Warwick.de directly to order one. Here are links to the basses in question from the Warwick website; http://www.warwickbass.com/en/Warwick---Products--Instruments--Made-in-Germany--Warwick-Series--Thumb-SC--Thumb-SC-Broad-Neck--6-string--Pictures.html http://www.warwickbass.com/en/Warwick---Products--Instruments--Made-in-Germany--Warwick-Series--Thumb-SC--Thumb-SC--6-Saiten--Pictures.html
  12. could use an octave pedal to thicken out your parts? I'm sure the EHX POG has an option to add an octave above and below at the same time.
