  1. My band Black Atlas played a local weekend festival called Balstock. wonderful gig in a small pub. Had the privilege of playing just before @Salt on your Bass? Absolutely wonderful sound he had going on, and he let me borrow his cab(s) (same as what I use which was brill, I didn’t have to bring mine)
  2. Had a fun gig last night playing at Club 85 in Hitchin. Always a fun place to play with good sound and great people. Little bit of the end of a song someone recorded. IMG_6680.MP4
  3. It has always depended on a mixture of what type of music i am playing. I went straight into the amp when I used to play in an Backing band for a guy who played Americana . Although i probably had a pedal tuner in there somewhere. Playing in my main band which is a stoner/grunge band i'm an always on medium distortion tone with the option of kicking on a fuzz. experiment, if it sounds good, it is good!
  4. I’ve used DR lo-rider .50 - 110 in D standard and they worked well. Maybe just upping the gauge if your happy with the strings?
  5. It was great meeting you yesterday. They are great instruments and I hope it serves you well! I do find it quite remarkable the tones that can be coaxed from these basses especially with backing off the pickups.
  6. I played at Bloodstock yesterday with Black Atlas. It was amazing. The sound quality on stage, the professionalism of the techs and the appreciation of the crowd was all excellent. We played well and I’ve never had such a buzz after playing.
  7. It was our/my first gig back, so first time playing out in 18 months last night. We played a warm up gig in a pub before we play bloodstock at the weekend. I am so glad we did. The first half of the set I felt quite nervous (few little fluffs and tempo of the first song was ridiculously quick) second half felt back to normal. really enjoyed it and put to bed the pandemic creeping question of “do I really like doing this”. I even enjoyed the challenge of not hearing much on “stage” and having terrible monitors ha!
  8. If I hadn’t just settled on my current board I would be all over this! Good luck with the sale Mr Salt.
  9. Still for sale! if this doesn't sell soon i might withdraw it and keep it!
  10. It's just been announced that my band Black Atlas will be playing Bloodstock this year on the new blood stage! I can't wait!

  11. I started using a Precision, they seem to just work and be suitable for everything. I still like taking other basses out but i know the P bass tone works for me.
  12. I owned one for about eight years, I couldn't fault it at all, best bass i owned at the time by i country mile, but it was never the bass i picked up first. I could never get the sound i wanted out of it and it took me years to work that out and sell it. I changed the preamp from a 3 band to a 2 band and that did help a lot but it still never got where i wanted to be.
  13. according to the G&L Website: NECK WIDTH AT NUT: 1 1/2" NECK RADIUS: 12" NECK PROFILE: medium C I'd say it's closer to a jazz neck than a precision neck but i haven't played a precision neck in years.
  14. With bathroom scales it’s weighing in at approx 3.85kg or 8.5lbs.
