  1. [quote name='EliasMooseblaster' timestamp='1377274513' post='2185739'] Don't [i]think[/i] I've ever been recognised in the street (we're not that famous). Closest I've got is a gig we played where we knew A Famous Bass Player was going to be in the audience (I'd prefer not to say who), so we had a bit of a chinwag with him prior to the gig and arranged for him to come up on stage and jam with the band - I handed him my bass and cleared off for one song. It went down well. Was just in the gents after our set when some feller walked in and stood next to me, eyes focused straight ahead of course, and said (to the wall), "I thought you were better than 'im." Made my evening, that did. [/quote] Thing is, being famous , does not by default make you a great bass player, If your famous, you were maybe just in the right place at the right time and maybe in cahoots with a talented singer/guitarist. Not wanting to spoil your moment mate, which would be class by the way
  2. [quote name='BigRedX' timestamp='1377186989' post='2184543'] Just tried it with 1m and 5m OBBM leads. Zero perceptible difference in signal quality. I would suggest that there's something wrong with the less good sounding lead that you have. [/quote] I would tend to agree with this as I have never found any difference in lead length. Lead quality makes a big difference right enough
  3. Hola Santi, welcome to the site. You are bound to get loads of help off the guys here. Its a great site
  4. I reckon Elixirs must be the mutts cos I have had a set on my acoustic guitar which gets played every day, sometimes for long periods , and they are still bright sounding after months. The bass strings are probably just as good
  5. [quote name='Dom in Somerset' timestamp='1377186320' post='2184525'] I think you're all being too hard on it. This listing clearly says that it's in need of restoration, I'm sure that with new neck, body, hardware, electronics and strings you could have a seriously nice bass, [/quote] If only I had thought of that, it would make a great little project if you had a spare couple of thousand
  6. [quote name='bartelby' timestamp='1377178834' post='2184384'] Chuck a gold pickguard on it and pretend to be Edgar Willis then... [color=#00802a][url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VkNmcjPHRE"]www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VkNmcjPHRE[/url][/color] [/quote] Lovely sound off that bad boy!
  7. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1377178592' post='2184374'] Bloody charlatan! [/quote] I quite like them too
  8. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1377178413' post='2184368'] You can pretend you're in Iron Maiden!! [/quote] I do that all the time anyway
  9. Is it not just a P bass? I mean, I have never had a test drive on one of these, but whats really the difference between this and another P ?
  10. You beat me to it, I was gonna say absolutely nothing. Its hideous!
  11. That's me, I hate the Beatles , I hate the doors , I hate Rod Stewart. I realise that these artists are all popular and reach out to millions, I just don't like them. Rush are one of my favourites, therefore I enjoy their music and can't understand when people call it awful. That's what taste is I suppose
  12. Who exactly is the bench mark for a great band that constantly delivers over a period of 40 years? I really would like to know because it sure isn't the Stones. I struggle to think of any band who has gone that long and still manages to delight album after album, with no slightly "off" songs. I think its amazing that they have stayed together making music. Ok, some say they drifted off form for a while, but the new album is arguably one of their best ever, so they have managed to produce again. 40 years is a long time to keep writing quality songs
  13. [quote name='Jack' timestamp='1376945026' post='2181436'] If you really need more bass then feel free to stick your cabinet right in a corner. However like others have said I don't think that's your problem. Generally if you really cant fix it with eq, then it's the room and you're just weeing in the wind. Get a wireless or a long cable and see how it sounds elsewhere. Hell, just get your guitarist to play your bass whilst you do a walk for a bit if you're that desperate. Bet you it sounds better than you think out front. Failing that, man up. Some rooms just suck for bassists! :-P [/quote] If I get our guitarist to play my bass, he sounds totally different from me, he cant play with fingers hard like I can, he just kind of strums with his thumb like a girl .( no offence to all you female bass players out there, just a turn of phrase) Point is, it sounds completely different
  14. Theres so many bands that I like. I just put the iTunes on random and lie back and listen to the cornucopia of sounds coming out my speakers. If Rush happen to come on, Im delighted as I feel they sit nicely in the eclectic mix of my tastes
  15. [quote name='wateroftyne' timestamp='1377080043' post='2183006'] I don't mind prog or poppy, as long as the tunes are good. But they ain't. [/quote] But thats just your opinion water, others have a different one
