  1. I've only briefly tried the Harley Benton/Palatino and the Aria SWB Lite stick bass and they both to spun/rotated. The Far West looks like a quality instrument, though I don't think the bridge is adjustable so I thought twice about that one, as I didn't know how it was set up. The Eminence or Yamaha SLB-200 are both stable, so I hear, difficult to try out though as I'm sure you know.
  2. These look like a great idea for something slightly more portable that a normal width bass, which gets pretty hefty by the time you add a padded case. GLWTS.
  3. I've been doing this chromatic exercise on my upright bass & also on my fretless, and I'm finding it good for intonation.
  4. What is about this talented, successful & professional musician that people don't like? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. If you're down London way the Bass Gallery have a red head on their website.
  6. Yes agreed mate. Remember hearing this years ago on the BBC radio 2 anniversary tribute to John Lennon, brought tears to my eyes...
  7. Have you tried to dial in a more electric tone with a preamp or pedal ? I use a KK Pure Preamp (mid, and treble controls plus an internal gain trimmer) to dial in a more acoustic tone if I play somewhere with a tinny PA, so something like basic EQ controls would enable you to get the tone you want.
  8. Ed Friedland's done a nice review on YT, and he had four so must be pretty good...
  9. I guess he's been a professional musician since the 1960s and at the very top end of the business so he must be doing something right, and even if you're just talking about his bass playing, I've have him in my band any day ๐Ÿ˜‰.
  10. Couple of nice 32 " scale Maruszczyks in Bass Direct. I think there was even a Jake 4p for sale on this forum too.
  11. They look great, but as you'll know, there's nowhere you can go and try one out. There is a Ray Ramirez in the Bass Gallery, so maybe next time I'm visiting the Big Smoke I could try it out. Maybe cheaper to hire myself a personal body guard for the evening ๐Ÿ˜‰
  12. @TheRev Yeah I think you're right mate. Maybe it was sold elsewhere under another name. Thanks
  13. Can't find any info on the web about this Artisan. I was toying with the idea of trying it out for open mics/jams/pub gigs when I might not want to take my acoustic (e.g. pubs where a few of the punters can be slightly worse for wear). Thanks.
  14. Get your trousers on you're nicked ! ๐Ÿ˜‰
