    London bass guitar show 2018

    I have attended every show since it began. I visited yesterday and noted the differences. The large hall has been partitioned into zones. The upside of this is the feeling of greater intimacy and less noise spill. Several repeat exhibitors have downsized their stands. To my mind, this did not reduce things from a visitors point of view. As an ex-exhibitor, I know that this reduces the amount of effort involved to load in and out. Consequently, we all gain because it makes the exhibitors more likely to rebook for the next show. I thought the luthier demonstration area near the cafe was a great idea. It gives people a place to sit to eat and drink whilst watching something relevant. Another improvement, albeit a small thing, is the lanyards have been replaced by wristbands and e-ticketing. This is not only more efficient it is also more environmentally friendly. I didn't attend any clinics or shows but I know these have become a real draw for visitors. All in all, in my opinion it is an improved show and that we should be grateful for Future to be putting on and allowing a focal point for the bass community.

    Cajon playing bass player WANTED

    Hi, I'm Phil and I play bass for a start-up electro-acoustic originals band called Fi Channon and her band Wilderness Road. We seek a cajon playing percussionist who can also take over the bass from me on songs where I'm playing mandolin or guitar. We currently rehearse weekly in Camberley and Twyford in Berkshire (in alternating turns). We started performing live in November 2016 and continue to make cameo appearances as support/acoustic night slots whilst we build up the set. We have gigs in the pipeline, and our style of singer/songwriter originals with an Americana feel, is going down well. Age, gender and race are of no relevance.

    Bass Gear - customer service

    [quote name='Alanbass' timestamp='1461241703' post='3032791'] Anyone had any recent experience with Bass Gear? Have sent a few emails to them but no response at all. Will think about giving them a call sometime but to be honest a bit put off by the lack of response. Appreciate any feedback from other basschatters. [/quote] Hi Alan. We've checked across all six of our email accounts that are active, and we can't trace you (assuming you are using the name Alan) at all! Please call, or email us on [email protected] we'd love to help

    Where can I get either a gig bag, or a case for my 2 headless basses?

    I used a Mono guitar gigbag for my headless Marleaux Betra In fact it was a Mono Dual so I had a spare headless (Spirit by Steinberger) in the second compartment. Very snug and protected. I hope that helps. Phil

    New Mesa class D amp

    [quote name='Roland Rock' timestamp='1452440315' post='2949936'] Your web domain name seems to have gone Walkabout - Have you got a Strategy to Rectify this? [/quote] I'm afraid we are suffering temporary problems with our server hosts. We are doing some routine maintenance that they recommend but it keeps tripping an automatic block. We are pulling our hair out (what's left!). I'm sure it'll be sorted very soon. Meanwhile, the UK distributor of Mesa Boogie has just found us a couple more of these heads. We should have them in a couple of days, along with more of the lightweight Mesa cabs

    [b]Update[/b] We are now out of these cabs and are now down to our last head. The situation around the UK may be similar, and new stocks are not expected until February.
