    Venue v Practice Room

    Our rehearsal rooms were flooded about 18 months back, so there is (an admittedly only slight) a damp smell. Good advice here re volumes used for rehearsals

    Digital remasters, yes or no?

    Ah yes, Loudness. I got the "Iggy remix/remaster" of Raw Power. Search and Destroy in particular, became deafeningly loud as opposed to a bit mushy and idiosyncratic. Preferred the original.

    Alternatives to the Squier Bass VI

    There's the Gretsch G5265, a baritone with a 30 inch (well, 29.75) scale and a 43mm nut.

    The classic 'band and a wall' photo

    Boxcar Riders last year - Sean (now left the band), Andy, Jane, yours truly and Geoff - outside York's Istanbul Grill (recommend the Veggie pizza!)

    Amazon Rickenbacker scam?

    Hmmm. All those other products he has available (Samsung S7 Edge, Asus Zenbook, Keter Factor Outdoor storage shed...!) are all the same price as the Ricky, £455.

    Feedback for ChrisJaxon

    Picked up a Yamaha BB425X from Chris's house last week while en route to our jolly holidays. Chris is a great guy, hospitable and indulgent with me having a go through his thunderous rig. The bass? Exactly as described. Deal with confidence - thanks Chris!!

    Hamer B12A (Jeff Ament model)

    And then Cataldo do a couple of variants...the ahem, Big Bottom or an NR bird shape.

    NBD - Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision

    This. Classic colour combo finely executed on this model.

    New embassy (and also thunderbird) bass, Classic style!

    The Embassy looks as if it is going up to £349, at least where retailers have stock. That still strikes me as being a good price though.

    P/J emg’s 57 SOLD

    Lovely looking bass!

    Oooer - not for me

    Yep, "splodgy" is a good word. Looks a bit like a Music Man Ray gone wrong to me . But then, I still think the Explorer shape look quite radical ("invented" 1958)

    Ibanez Talman bass, maple fingerboard...

    Like the look of these, especially in Mint/Maple. I also need a P/J...
  15. Bit slow I know, but just been reading all the above and saying "wow" to myself! What a great experience! Thanks for the photos
