  1. Bonding with the wrong bass

    You know my thoughts on the JHS vintage basses. They are so under rated and I think you are struggling to accept that such cheap basses can be very very good quality and very playable. I still regret selling my Tony Butler one to you and in truth part of the reason I moved from Vintage to Squier and now MIM is purely the name on the headstock. To make it worse my first V4 before I had the Tony Butler one had a lovely slim neck for a Precision and haven't found one as nice since. Just enjoy playing it mate and forget the brand stereotype. If I had the room and a more forgiving wife I would be getting another V4 😁😁
  2. Looking to get into Wireless IEMs and am planning on buying an entry level system £75-£120 to see how I get on but thought I would see if anyone has a better quality one they want to sell for similar price first. Many thanks
  3. Planet Rock..same old hat

    I find Radio 6 very repetitive in terms of playlists especially Radcliffes show. I used to like Craig Charles funk and soul show that was always on when I was driving to gigs but don't think it's on anymore. Slightly OT but why aren't there any comedy radio stations? I would happily listen to some stand up and shows that appear on Radio 4 like Sorry I haven't a clue. There used to be comedy section Radio 2 Saturday mornings and it was very funny
  4. Planet Rock..same old hat

    I listen to music all the time apart from when I'm in the car. As a sales rep im in my car for 8 hours a day and only ever listen to spoken radio like LBC, 5live and Radio 4. Music stations are just too repetitive
  5. I had the same problem when I wanted a tort one for my white V4. Couldn't get them anywhere. You could get one made using your current one as a template but will be expensive. V4s are great basses. Wish I hadn't sold mine.
  6. We've recently upgraded our none powered mixer from a tiny 4 channel that used to sit on a music stand to a 12 channel mixer and I'm now after advice on what you guys put your mixers on during gigs. Never like to rely on a spare table at a pub and the X shaped keyboard stands always look a bit unsteady to me. Needs to be foldable. Thanks in advance
  7. It doesn't get any easier. I'm in my mid 40s and our weather still depresses me. We did a 3 day outdoor festival last year and played on the Saturday. Friday and Sunday were hot and warm but when we played on Saturday night is poured down of rain and everyone ran to the beer tents.
  8. Frustrating

    I think speed is a factor a lot of bands struggle with when playing live. When I watch videos back of us playing live I am shocked how quicker some of the songs are. Must be an adrenaline thing. I always struggled with the bass solo in my generation till I realised we were playing it a lot quicker than the original.
  9. Faces Live 1972

    Although not a fan I love all what I've heard of the faces. I would imagine, as I also think with Jimi Hendrix, the studio albums dont come close to how good they would be live.
  10. Singing bass players

    Blackie Lawless in the early days of WASP. Great vocals but think his bass playing was pretty much just root notes.
  11. Although learning bass on one borrowed from a friend, the first time I went into a music shop to try one out plugged in, I just played The Chain over and over!
  12. How do you pronounce Epiphone?

    I never been sure if the T in Hartke is supposed to be silent.
  13. Bass heaven, bass hell

    Bass Heaven - Finally bringing home from the shop the bass you've been dreaming of for months and plugging it in for the first time Bass Hell- The following day when you're bored of it and already looking for something else.
  14. Black Sabbath Vol 4

    Great album. My favourites are Supernaut and St Vitus Dance.
