  1. I’ve been asked to join a new band; very exciting as it’s a funk/disco function band and very different from the current rock n roll/60’s gig. I’ll have to work on a different technique, so a bit of a challenge. Anyway I thought it also a good excuse to look at a different bass! 😉 I’m looking at 5 string, active and considering: Lakland 55/02, MM Stingray, Fender Elite Jazz, Sandburg TM, Sadawsky Metroline Express and MTD Kingston. Or should I just get a Sire V2 and have done? All advice and comments welcome! 😁
  2. Great advice, thanks guys! If it were down to me alone, I’d want to put the whole band through the P.A., go down the 735 route and get rid of the back line; but there is zero interest from the others in the band to do that. So I’ve taken Alec’s advice and jumped on the 722s! I’m picking them up this afternoon. its a slight compromise, but I think it makes sense in the band as it is. I’m looking forward to getting them and will gig them in a duo side project this weekend! It should be good!
  3. Thank you Alec, that’s all useful information. Thanks also to the other guys who have given an opinion; it’s much appreciated and will help inform my choice. Cheers!
  4. Replacing a pair of 8 yr old Alto TS15s Band is quite loud (approx 110db) current speakers broken, so good opportunity to upgrade not looking to upgrade in the foreseeable Mics: Shure SM58 x 2 / Shure Beta x 1 Yes, happy with current mixer three individual monitors, (adequate but not great) budget flexible (£400-£1500) Thanks in anticipation 😁
  5. Time has come to get some new P.A. speakers: Four piece band, the P.A. just does 3x vox and a little keyboard here and there. We play social clubs and a few functions, so small to medium sized rooms up to 300 max (often less!) I'm looking for something decent and have heard good things about RCF stuff. So powered with nice sound, compact as possible, flexible budget. Suggestions appreciated
  6. If I can get the Doubler, I may very well be interested in this...... 🤔
  7. And so it goes on. I appear to have accidentally brought a fretless SpectorCore! (Arrives tomorrow hopefully!)
  8. I have to admit I’m in the same mindset as the OP. I’ve got 2 Vanderkley 1 x 12 and a Mesa head. And I’m thinking of a Rumble or Ashdown, or Mark Bass! GAS is a terrible thing. 😏
  9. I went for the Waverider and Rogue Wave. Very pleased with them 😁
  10. I’ve just fitted a set of Gemini’s to my R** copy 😉
  11. I quite like the idea of a smallish light weight combo for smaller gigs or to put through a P.A. and use as a monitor for larger ones. There seems to be a few examples but these two caught my eye markbass cmd 102p vs ashdown originAL C210-300 i wonder if anyone has any experience or opinions on these or other alternatives?
  12. Well you’re definitely not too old! But that Schecter is very heavy! I’d say too heavy but interesting that it has a great tone, brings up that whole mass = tone question
  13. I play in a duo and have played DB in an acoustic trio. It’s a fag to take twice the kit, if it were me I’d develop a very percussive bass style possibly on an acoustic bass guitar or DB and get the singer to shake a tambourine; a tambourine goes a long way to adding some rhythm in an acoustic combo. I’ve also used a foot tambourine yo good effect whilst playing bass. If none of this I’d get myself a cajon and find another band for bass outings.
