  1. Yep, which won't prevent damage if rough handled.
  2. That is a bit of an eye opener. Doesn't surprise me though. As somebody that has worked as a courier, I always treated musical instruments with kids gloves. Made sure when I loaded the van in the morning, that I loaded the van so no damage would come to an instrument. That isn't as easy as it sounds, depending on how many items there are on the route that day. What gets me is, retailers use couriers, and they will send the guitars out in the original cardboard boxes.
  3. Well I'm finalising learning Black Sabbath Paranoid. Started learning Saxon Power and the Glory.
  4. Would just like to thank everybody for the replies here. I have implemented some of them, even though I am away from home, and have traveled with my EB-3L. I get no pain in my right shoulder at all at the moment. The main difference I've made is the fact both my feet/legs are now place symmetrical on the ground whilst I play, I no longer cross my legs as before. Can't wait to try this with my Stingray Sub 4 HH when I get home.
  5. If I had an itch for a valve amp, I'd definitely look to Ashdown, the CTM 300 must be awesome if my CTM 30 Stubby is anything to go by. If I ever get the chance to gig in a band, it will by a CTM 100 or CTM 300 I'd use.
  6. When I saw all the foot prints over your box I was whizzed off, I'm just glad the bass turned out ok, and that it was protected by an old school wooden case. Enjoy her she's a beaut.
  7. Listening to Ellefson - No Covers album. Which was released on the 20th of Nov. Featuring guests from many bands.
  8. Have to say I had a look at Kytary earlier. There's a bass on there that has caught my eye. Which seems to be out of stock or discontinued else where. When they say they have something in stock, is that generally the truth?
  9. I've been using my Vox Amplug 2 Bass for about 2 plus months now. I'm very happy with it. Using the right headphones is recommended though, I have quite a few headphone. My preferred headphones is my Beyerdynamic. These Vox Amplugs are quite fragile and snap off if you are not careful. I got around this by using a short extension jack wire.
  10. That's kind of what I am hoping. But when I play my EB3 I can play for a long time , with little to no pain. The EB3 being alot thinner body and different shape of course. I really hope a different posture may help. As the 38mm nut on the Stirling Sub4 is alot easier for me to play well.
  11. Thanks @Aidan63 . I will try what you have suggested. At least for now I have my Westfield EB3, I can play, which causes little pain after a long time of playing. But I don't want to be limited to one type of bass for the rest of my life!
  12. Right guys, I want to pick the brains of bass chatters. Awhile back I bought a new Musicman Stirling Sub 4 HH. I love the tones it produces, and the selector switch function. But I've hardly played it. However when I play sitting down, I get bad pain in my right shoulder. The pain will become so bad that I will stop playing. Has anybody had similar issues with any bass guitar? Where your right shoulder became so painful that you couldn't play? Did you find a solution? Or was it a case of finding a bass guitar that doesn't cause this pain? I'm guessing different bass guitars, with different body designs is the answer? David
