  1. Mmm. As other have said, depends on your bass. I'd start with it flat, small boost at 400Hz, slightly smaller boost at 800Hz and tweak the compressor to see if it does anything useful.
  2. If you have some switch cleaner, spray it onto a plug and put that in and out of the socket a few times, has been known to work occasionally!
  3. I'd say 'I Saw Her Standing There' is currently very uncool, especially when murdered by a bunch of 50-something dad-rockers. But the bass line credentials are impeccable.
  4. Carmine Rojas? He'd be on my list. He'd be joined by Richard Cousins, Nathan East , and Colin Hodgkinson.
  5. Thats why it mostly grows in churchyards. Consecrated ground was one of the few places off-limits to grazing animals in the middle ages.
  6. Under normal circumstances I'd say bring it round and we can try it on a different cab & lead, but I don't think that's such a good idea at the moment. Could it be dirty jack sockets in the effects loop? I've heard of that causing trouble with other equipment.
  7. Working from home, 4 days a week pretty much as normal. Getting to grips with the 4-track recording capability of my Zoom H4N. I thought it was about time I figured out how to use it. A great tool for highlighting mistakes and inconsistent playing . And I built a new pickup for the Hondo Alien, using a pair of used Jazz pickups from @walshy . Much to my amazement it worked straight away and has vastly improved the sound over the standard pickup. Normally my soldering leaves a lot to be desired and I wasn't called 'Blobby Nobby' by the sparkies on one construction job for nothing.
  8. The one at the SE bass bash was my orange one. Identical in every other respect to this one, apart from the colour.
  9. I had this playing on speakers and stepped away from the computer just as it reached the end of the piece. A few seconds of silence and it started playing again. Except that youtube had decided to follow up Matt's recording with a version played by Pat Metheny himself. I didn't notice that it was a different clip until I got back to the monitor a couple of minutes later! Congratulations to you both and thanks for posting the clip.
  10. pink torpedo Sparrer? Oh good grief. Time to get rid of this fscking useless profanity filter once and for all. Next one in our diary is 10th April, looking pretty unlikely but who knows.
  11. That's a great find, and from the same concert this is brilliant. What a great band they were in their heyday, up there with the very best.
  12. Now these are nice bases, but over $5000 US? You'd have to say thats a bit optimistic https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/YAMAHA-BB3000-4-Strings-Electric-Bass-White-With-Soft-Case-Used-JP-Free-Shipping/184196866433?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D226063%26meid%3Ddca5e316f9cf46cea504e19c447015c2%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D3%26mehot%3Dco%26sd%3D174198916186%26itm%3D184196866433%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithBBEV1Demotion%26brand%3DYamaha&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
