  1. Hi guys and gals, ive got a friend looking for a bass tutor for someone just starting out. Obviously, no meeting in person at the moment anyway, but face-to-face would be the ideal once lockdown starts easing. Ideally Portsmouth, or southern-Hampshire, based. If you, or anyone you know provides one-to-one teaching in the area, could you PM me details to pass on? Cheers!
  2. Did a bit of shielding work today. Bit of a messy job (first time needing to do this!), but seems to have done the trick. Minimal buzzing now.
  3. No, nothing so far. Being playing around for a month or so now. Only issue is quite a lot of hum. I’m getting some shielding foil soon and will open it up to shield the cavities and check out the grounding in the next couple of weeks.
  4. Exercise book - Scales from Rhythm and Outer Space... aka Tetra Cocktails by Felix Pastorius. Brand new and unused (unfortunate duplicated Christmas present!). £25 (or best offer) delivered, or trade for ‘Just ASIP of Coffee & The Chromatic Scale’.
  5. Wouldn't have a clue I'm afraid...

  7. This gets surprisingly close, but has its own thing going on. Bit more of a mid-mid punch, rather than the low-mid tone of the P-bass. Plus, I already have a Precision... 🙂
  8. It was a bit of a blind buy, as I had no choice but to order online, but been doing a fair bit of recording where a flat wound-strung short scale was the sound I was aiming for.
  9. So yeah, playing around with this today... It’s lacking a few inches off my other basses (feels really tiny!), but not missing any bottom end! I’m not big fan of signature instruments, or ‘relic’d’ basses really, but this one has excellent specs that I believe outweigh its price tag. Plus, Fender and Justin Meldal-Johnsen haven’t done any silly faffing with the concept. JMJ’s just got a really nice Mustang that they’ve cloned... Bit of a nervous wait for delivery (have always picked out an instrument in person before, but that’s really not an option right now...), but no major issues identified from its transit! Will need to have a look into some shielding paint/foil to counter 60-cycle hum at some point, but that seems to be fairly typical of these instruments.

  11. Down to £60 delivered - or nearest sensible offer!
