  1. Anyone found their perfect bass?

    Wals for me... tried pretty much everything out there on the journey to get here though. I no longer own anything else.
  2. I had a Glockenklang Blue Soul for a bit and it was awesome... crystal clear, deep punchy bass... I only sold it as I couldn't deal with the fact it overhung my One10s. Silly really but there we go 😕 I've an Epifani piccolo at the moment which I also like but it's not a patch on the Glockenklang.
  3. [quote name='hiram.k.hackenbacker' timestamp='1507932830' post='3388949'] Ha ha. Heathy lives there 😂 [/quote] Blimey... presumably he doesn't go out after dark?
  4. [quote name='Heathy' timestamp='1507921438' post='3388863'] No. I tend to get 'Braintree singles' and 'Russian dates'. [/quote] Faced with a straight choice - go for the Russian ... I've been to Braintree 😐
  5. Post your pictures, Lets see what you all look like.

    [quote name='spectoremg' timestamp='1507914097' post='3388807'] Nice pics. What's the photo effect in the first one? [/quote] I've no idea I'm afraid... singist paid a photographer to come along and take some shots for us during the gig. Really pleased with how they came out. ... hoping to use them for flyers and stuff. Our last band photo was laughably poor and made us look like a daytime TV garden makeover crew 😕
  6. Post your pictures, Lets see what you all look like.

    From last weekends gig at The Grove in Battersea. Wasn't a bad gig really considering it was definitely a venue better suited to classic rock covers than originals... seemed to go down OK though Another from the same gig... must have been during a bit I had to concentrate on
  7. What do you own?

    Sixes for me... one fretted one fretless. I like to take both to gigs depending on how far I've got to travel as certain songs suit both. Both of them in a double gigbag is bloody heavy though, so I usually just take the fretted. I tend to rotate them for rehearsals, it's useful to see which suits which song
  8. Earplugs?

    Aside from sounding better do fancy expensive earplugs actually offer better protection than standard 5p foam plugs? I grab the foam ones from work and they are supposedly designed to be used on building sites so must offer decent protection? Or am I just kidding myself and I might as well be using nothing...
  9. Anaconda Basses

    Was lucky enough to witness someone playing one of these in another band at last nights gig. A fretless 5, looked and sounded fantastic with Barts and a Glock pre I seem to remember... great player too... Got chatting and it turns out the man whole built it was in the audience. Top chap and an obvious passion for the instruments he makes. We really are spoilt for choice in the UK for home grown bass builders
  10. Earplugs?

    I've been using these since I was 13... Defenitely far more technical options out there but they work for me
  11. Ex-Barefaced users?

    I've been using a pair of One10s for a while now and couldn't be happier with them I only swapped from the berg CN210 I had been using to give me the option of using just one cab and Berg didn't make a lightweight 110. I was very sceptical at first as I tried an older set up ages ago (Compact and Midget I think it was) and I absolutely hated it... it was mega loud but sounded like I was playing my bass through the london underground PA system... horrible middy honk and no botttom end. Dunno what they are doing differently now but I wouldn't swap my One10s for anything else*... Lovely punchy deep focused sound and ridiculously easy to get around. Tone is subjective yadda yadda but it's a 10/10 from me. *actually that's not strictly true, if I had someone to carry my gear around I'd have a full fat Glockenklang rig.
  12. Gigging & Public Transportation

    "Dating" is the novel American concept of getting to know someone before (provided all goes well) moving the relationship on further, perhaps to a physical level. This differs from the traditional British approach of getting smashed off your tits at a party, coping off with someone you fancy, snogging their face off and usually more, then spending the next few months finding out if you actually like each other... ... cultural differences and all that.
  13. Gigging & Public Transportation

    I have travelled to all my gigs / rehearsals on the London transport network for the last few years. Most of the time it's just bass on my back and I DI straight into the PA. On the rare occasion I have to take an amp (only ever for backline) my whole setup fits on a trolley and weights 16kg. Uber has changed everything these last couple of years though. Hundreds of cabs going past my house at any given time of day / night which can be booked and paid for instantly through the app. Usually costs less than a tenner and gets me and all my gear from my front door to the gig and back 😊
  14. Bass - Amp (set flat) In fact 9 times out of 10 I DI straight from the bass and don't even bother with the amp.
  15. What are those 'hair bobble' thugs called on a bass?!

    I can understand how these might help but part of playing bass (especially an ERB) is learning how to mute the other strings...
