  1. I love it but Idles can do no wrong in my book!!!!
  2. I use iRig with AmpliTube which I think you can use with a Android phone. I use it with my iPad mini and it’s a great way for silent/portable practice.
  3. I recently purchased one of these and can’t believe what a great bass it is. I’ve bought and sold several p basses trying them out (normally play jazz) and trying to find one I like, this bass ticked all the boxes for me. GLWTS.
  4. Occasionally get good price off eBay and all the gauge sizes are on there as well.
  5. The whole between pickup and neck. There is a thread about someone making them but the link lead nowhere.
  6. Does anyone know where I can buy a thumb rest with one hole that can be attached to the hole on the pick guard? I’ve done the usual internet search and like the Zero Mod style but not the price. The thumb rest needs to be black or clear. Paddy.
  7. I thought it was a great venue and sound. Absolutely rammed! There is a little bar upstairs that was hardly used.
  8. I watched The Idles being supported by The Crows last night in Cardiff’s Tramshed. Two excellent bands that put on a great show.
  9. I tried all different options from metal, gut, weed whackers, pretend guts, rs4000 (which felt like two different sets of strings), bumping stings and anything in between. All had merits and downfalls. A lot of money spent but I would often pick up used sets, which do appear on this site. This will save a bundle and you get back what you pay it you don’t like them. I also tried a few options from the Innovation range and settled with the Silver Slaps as my preference. There’s a fair sustain from the Innovations and not too harsh on the slap. They lasted and absolute age as well. Innovation may have other sets available now as this was a couple of years ago and I now just play bass guitar. The above was my journey and my preference - others may have differing opinions.
  10. I’m at the back with the drummer doing my thing (band thing) but secretly I would like to move forward a couple of steps and perhaps do some shouty backing vocals! Ths week at practice we tried my debut song that I wrote and it sounded ok - this might give me a little more confidence to at least move nearer a mic and take half a step forward 😜
  11. Received pickups from Steve today. Great comms and super speedy delivery. Top man.
