    Help with lighting stand please

    Stairville from Thomann. BLS-315. Bought as a replacement for the cheap crap aluminium stand that came with my Equinox light, much better quality and about a metre taller.

    Ten String ThunderBird (5x2 multicourse)

    Wonder if some banjo tuners would give you a bit more room?

    Favourite basses and back pain.

    My Fylde acoustic has a cedar top. That was made in about 1975 and isn't showing any signs of wearing out.

    Favourite basses and back pain.

    Have you thought about a Bass Collection 5? I've just weighed my SB465 at 8.6lbs, and that has an ebony fretboard and a dense hardwood cap - a standard SB315 might get under the 8.5lb mark. String spacing is 19mm.

    New toys and a rant

    And lets not forget sheer dogged determination, hard graft - 600+ gigs in 2 or 3 years, sleeping on people's sofas, the underground. He's paid his dues and deserves all the success he's had if you ask me.

    Axes 'R' Us have a fine selection.

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    I don't agree - the TRB5P and TRB4P from the early nineties were better and more versatile instruments imo.

    Best Bass for under £300

    I have a BB800 from '79 which is like this, and I think the BB1000 from the same era did too.

    Effect loop. Amp

    Some weird auto-correct going on there - should have said 'ahead of the pre-amp'. Apologies.

    Effect loop. Amp

    There are hundreds of threads about this. Generally, loops are intended for line-level (ie rack) effects. Most pedals work off instrument level and belong ahead of the dream. Just because guitarists do something does not mean it is actually a good idea - the 64 million flies argument applies.

    South East Bass Bash No.12, Saturday 29th September 2018!

    Basschat breaking new ground, as ever. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time in the banjo shop. And I believe they also stock accordions!

    Best clip on chromatic tuner?

    These are great tuners for tuning the instrument, but using one to work on your intonation? I don't see how that's going to work, you need to use the tuner between your ears for that.

    Incoming - time for a clear-out

    Simon is the guy who makes Matt Schofield's guitars. Seriously good stuff, great choice.

    Bump button in Items Wanted

    Doesn't seem worth imposing the task of vetting messages on the mods. Never mind, thanks for looking into it.

    Sorry guys, I won't be able to make it this year: I'll be sampling the delights of Huddersfield that weekend! Have a great time 🙂
