    Cheers just ordered some .040s. I use the same gauge in rounds so hopefully they should feel familiar.

    Cool, might give ‘em a go, thanks. Do they fall off a cliff sound wise after a while or are they the sort of flats that get better with age? Always feel like hex cores are the former but no direct experience of them

    Thanks yes I’ve heard good things about those. I like lower tension and apparently the Dunlop flats are quite low but it seems like TIs are still the lowest?

    Fun little 30 bass comparison

    Funny that - another Vigier player who enjoys the sound of a Smith. Those two were my faves too but I also really liked the Zon and the first MTD

    I’ve been after a nice SB1 for a while but couldn’t find any UK ones in my price range and I prefer the older models which narrowed down the search somewhat. Anyway I’ve just bought what looks like a nice one but it’s coming from the states so who knows when/if it’ll arrive... OK it’s a bit knackered but should clean up nicely. It’s all original (1991) and supposedly nicely set up but we’ll see. Strung with flats it should be the perfect opposite to my Smith. I used to use TI flats as I liked the low tension. Is there anything else worth trying? I’ll let you know when it’s here anyway! ped

    Ural bass - now we're talking!

    Yes... and the Urals are in Russia aren’t they.. @spectoremg explain yourself! Or is that @putin
  7. Dear Ped,

    how do I edit or repost an ad with a lower price?



  8. Done. Looks cool, too. I’d love a gaming PC but fear my wife would not

    Short Scale 'Thing' (23" scale Headless 4 string)

    Looking fantastic. Really amazing. RE the magnetic covers, I can’t remember where I saw it but I remember a bass with one where to remove the cover you pressed down on one section and the cover popped up. Neat!

    I quite like Scott’s vids, I don’t watch them for anything other than entertainment to pass the time - it’s better than what’s on TV! Here’s my kind of ‘review’ - great audio quality, sweet groove playing and little to no talking (I can read up on the instrument myself)

    Michael Jackson covers- Yes or No?

    Fine. The music is separate from the media circus surrounding the man.

    It was an extreme example but you do hear people saying ‘if I play a J or a P it doesn’t matter, I always sound like me’ I can very often identify the bass used on recordings, or have a good idea about the type of bass at least.

    Here come the 'all in the fingers' brigade who'd have you believe you can get a Stingray sound from an upright

    And record it with a decent audio interface, not a phone mic near a 10w combo in the corner of a kitchen. Personally, I like to hear what a bass sounds like when spanked, but also finger style so I appreciate when they do both.
