    MXR Bass Octave Deluxe

    What could have been a decent pedal demo was scuppered by my inability to say 'girth knob' without giggling; if you want sensible gear demos there's always Ed Friedland... Seriously, though, this is a nice alternative to the Boss OC-2.

    Feedback for Lardy

    Jon bought an octave pedal from me, I believe it was his first BC marketplace purchase. What can I say? Excellent comms, prompt payment and a totally hassle-free transaction from start to finish. Top bloke! @Lardy

    Top players and learning insight

    I did a transcription of this a few months ago and was blown away by how easy he makes it sound; the line moves all over the neck but he makes it sound totally seamless. Anthony Jackson's contribution to Chaka Khan's 'Move Me No Mountain' had a huge effect on me, as did Jamerson's line on 'What's Going On'.

    DB hire help needed!

    I have a gig in Paris at the end of April and the client has offered to pay for instrument hire to save me risking mine on the Eurostar and fighting my way through the Metro with it. The gig is unplugged pop stuff, so the requirements of the bass are fairly minimal. Does anyone have any advice on the following: 1. Any recommended DB hire places in Paris 2. Anywhere in the UK that might hire a Chadwick folding bass (or similar) OR anyone that would be prepared to hire theirs out for a decent fee.
