    15 year old son looking for help with used bass amps

    I would go for the TNT as they really are great amps i use one at a rehearsal studio and much prefer it to the newer more expensive Orange and Ashdown amps there ... you mention the guitarist is using a 45watt blackstar amp , well if that's the tube version its very very loud for a front room practice so ear protection might be worth considering..

    Know your intervals

    Ah i see thank you jrixn1 i didn't realise it was just the 3rd that defined the minor major aspect of the scale i shall now commit that to memory and pretend i knew it all along 😃

    Know your intervals

    I have never really understood why a minor 2nd is only a semitone apart and yet a natural minor scale or dorian scale ect. are a whole tone apart ?

    Why does this work? Jamerson genius...

    I guess one persons aimless noodling is another persons perfect line... for me it stands up as a really strong line by itself and just becomes one of the all time great lines in the mix.

    Thinking about changing the pickups in my Sei Jazz 5.

    I was having the same thoughts regarding pickups with my fender jazz which had high beams on ,and i thought they had plenty of life left, however i had some new cheap warwick nickel reds to try out which i did and all the snap and sparkle came back ! might be worth trying new strings before splashing out.

    Top Ten Jazz Mags for a Newbie...

    hmmm...'thou dost protest to much'
  11. I think i tried this in Giggear Harlow and was really impressed, only reason i didnt walk out with it is that i have actually run out of places to hide my bass's from the mrs ! i have had quite a lot of gear from them over the years and have always been impressed with the service and prices.
  12. Me too i'm getting one of these https://www.andertons.co.uk/sire-version-2-marcus-miller-m2-5-string-in-transparent-blue-ver2m25bl
