  1. A mature and studious friend is looking to take up Double Bass. If you are a teacher--or know of any teachers--near Bridport, then please get in touch. Many thanks Paul
  2. [i]Updated[/i] I was thinking of a sort of FAQ links; '[b]What do you want to do?[/b]' Then you could have links such as: Value delivery within the UK Insured delivery within the UK International statements Fast international delivery Best for cabs etc. etc. They would each go to a specific post with a courier firm (or top 3), a comment, and user quotes/anecdotes. Seems like a smarter way of clearing up the information and making use of the data. The convoluted table thing can be kept below should one want to get more specific, yo. Input welcome.

  3. [quote name='paul, the' post='70437' date='Oct 6 2007, 08:04 PM']Done - Right, this is done as cheaply as possible, but I'm pleased with the results. It may distort at higher volumes. All files were recorded with my passive Precision Special strung with (roundwound) DR Lo-Riders. The Motown with foam by the bridge. No effects were used, I've just mic'd up the relevant speaker with the EQ on full bass, full middle, half treble.[/quote] This track was recorded through the stock 15 driver, with foam by the bridge on the bass, Precision pup at 100%, and Jazz bridge pup at %80: [url="http://www.supload.com/listen?s=GR0dx8"]http://www.supload.com/listen?s=GR0dx8[/url] ---- These are a couple of tracks with me just noodling around Dmix' - Precision pup at %80 and the jazz bridge pup at %100: [url="http://www.supload.com/listen?s=yqKe2C"]http://www.supload.com/listen?s=yqKe2C[/url] w/Peavey 18" driver: [url="http://www.supload.com/listen?s=BBJCvw"]http://www.supload.com/listen?s=BBJCvw[/url] Files have been compressed for quick upload so I can watch Natural World.

  5. [quote name='marcus bell' post='316765' date='Oct 28 2008, 03:14 PM']mark king is best, period....[/quote] I don't know about 'period', but that was almost an ellipses.
  6. It reminds me of medieval instruments. I don't think JF is great at the aesthetic, but I bet it sounds quite good.
  7. I forgot Jerry Jemmott. I'll swap AH for him. 'though there's probably a simple gospel player out there that I like even more.
  8. I can't think of two other bassists that excite me nearly as much as [b]Jamerson[/b]. I will say [b]Fams[/b] and [b]Jerry Jemmott[/b] for the love. They both knew how to employ passionate restrain whilst remaining vocal. 'though bassists here have impressed me no end. Who was the guy who did the tracks on the £50 P-copy. He had superb and innovative feel.
  9. [quote name='Huge Hands' post='313807' date='Oct 24 2008, 02:03 PM']Thanks Beedster, you made me and my "plethora" of Squiers feel like one of the team for a while there..... [/quote] That's the spirit!
  10. 'A plurality of Precisions...' Oh -plethora-, surely?!
  11. Updated. [quote name='BassBunny' post='289171' date='Sep 22 2008, 02:13 PM']You can specify. You are given a number of options when booking.[/quote] [quote name='BassBunny' post='290731' date='Sep 24 2008, 11:54 AM'](or should I say DHL?).[/quote] I don't know. Surely Interparcel is too unspecific to be of use. Thoughts, anyone? 'though they do have their own T&Cs. [quote name='Lorne' post='290847' date='Sep 24 2008, 01:55 PM']and - 10 for Parcelfarce,who have changed the rules concerning paying Import duty,no longer will they collect cash on the doorstep,they will hold your item,you pay by credit or debit card and they deliver it the NEXT day,like you haven't waited long enough You do have the option to drive to their depot and pay cash [/quote] Not sure I can -1 because they've changed their payment rules. Yes, a bad experience; perhaps my OP needs greater clarity. [quote name='top jimmy' post='293564' date='Sep 27 2008, 07:23 PM']i know that they are crap from top jimmy[/quote] Your insight of my disclaimer has brought tears to my humbled eyes. [quote name='OldGit' post='301042' date='Oct 7 2008, 09:17 AM']Ah, another one misslead by the large print...[/quote] Perhaps my OP ought to be clearer(?).

  16. Updated. [quote name='BassBunny' post='282088' date='Sep 11 2008, 07:19 PM']The final delivery really tested Interparcel's Customer Service. I booked through the web and chose a DHL service. Everything went through fine until on the day of collection DHL phoned to tell me the pick-up time I selected was after their pick-up time for the area. I tried to explain that the time I "selected" was the only one available. They agreed to collect the next day, which didn't really bother me, but decided to let Interparcel know that there was a problem with their booking system as it only offered me a 2:30 - 4:30 pick-up slot and DHL's cutt-off for my area was 10:00AM, A polite, "could you hang on a moment" resulted in them offering to change the order to TNT and it would be picked up later in the afternoon, which it was. The package was delivered at 8:06 the following morning.[/quote] That's interesting. Perhaps we are able to specify a preferred contractor (or whatever the correct word is) when ordering. [quote name='fumps' post='282380' date='Sep 12 2008, 09:43 AM']Be very wary of Initial City link...[/quote] Great info, fumps.
  17. Eek. I'll do these sometime soon; Half Nelson is on in a minute.

  19. [quote name='Clarky' post='273713' date='Aug 31 2008, 02:19 PM']I am surprised the legion of Rickenbacker haters haven't flocked on to this thread .... yet (I own two!)[/quote] That's probably why they're so cool. They don't give a sh*t.
  20. I haven't liked what I've heard from Villex, MTD, or Sadowsky. But that seems to be subjective. I didn't like the sound samples for the Bob Glaub bass. [quote name='WILD FROG SHOT' post='273625' date='Aug 31 2008, 11:54 AM']Anything made by Behringer apart from the 8 way DI I bought, which is blinding.[/quote] I don't think Behringer are overrated. Everyone knows they're pretty awful (except for the people that like them).
