    In praise of the TC Spectracomp

    Has anyone used a Spectracomp and an EBS Multicomp? How do they compare?

    Not everything about the bass is great .....

    That's a shame, London's Burning is one of their best

    NBD - AV Basses PJ5

    Thought it would be, it seems near on impossible to find a 35" 5 string P bass - these look brilliant though 😀

    Those are a bit schmexy, what is the scale length?

    Playing Champagne Supernova bores me rigid......but.....as the last song of the night it usually evokes a mass sing-along and goes down really well, making it much more bearable.

    You know, I nearly checked, but then just ploughed on anyway

    I like The Cardigans - First Band On The Moon and Grand Tuerneo are both good albums. I also like the ethos behind the band which was essentially four metal musicians decide to write pop songs and recruit an art school student who's not sung before to front it. Sounds daft, but somehow works

    Apparently Markbass are to make bass guitars

    Arrgghh, my eyes, why would you post that?

    The Richard Bona one looks interesting, but I doubt they'll sell many. As for the other one, whilst I'm sure it'll be the more popular of the two, it's another entry into a saturated market, what are they offering that no-one else is? And is there a market for that? I've not seen many people callijg out for a P bass shape with J electronics. I can't much see the logic in MB expanding into the instrument market and suspect most of the people playing them will be endorsees.

    How was your gig last night?

    Last night we did a Sunday evening (19:30 - 21:30) gig at a pub in Crawley. It was pretty quiet - to the point of almost being a paid rehearsal, but as it was paid and an early finish, there's not too much to complain about. Second time out with IEM and they worked really well, made the singer happy too as it's one fewer wedge to bring into the venue. Also, GAS is stupid, I'd spent most of the week convincing myself I wanted a five string Precision but when I plugged in my DJ5 (even though it has strings like a Norweigan Blue) and tweaked the pre-amp/DI a bit, the tone I wanted was right there. Isn't it funny how GAS strikes when my mind is wandering at work rather than when I'm actually playing......🤪

    Fretless bass in metal

    Obscura are touring over here next month and have First Fragment supporting. The bassist in First Fragment is Forest who played on the first Beyond Creation album and is also in Augury, so lots of fretless action there. London is the nearest for me, may have to wait and see how the kids are being closer to the date

    Top 10 jazz albums for a newbie

    I'm listening to Genius Of Modern Music 1 now, it's astonishing that these were his first compositions

    Conundrum For You All ...

    That'd be my guess, the only thing that's changed when the drummer starts playing is an increase in the amount of vibrations in the room

    Top 10 jazz albums for a newbie

    Any Thelonious Monk reccomendations? Just listened to the first album that was on Spotify (Monk) which was great, but with 53 studio albums and about 30 compilations to pick from on Spotify, it's hard to know where to start.
