  1. Have just become hopelessly carried away in the Maruszczyk bass configurator... oh well, there goes the morning...

      The Maruszczyk basses that Mark @ BassDirect sent me for video review were really nice! The fan fret natural Jazz was so comfy. I loved the super rolled fretboard edges.

  2. It has only taken me X years to finally get round to switching out the two band Glockenklang pre in my MIJ Fender for a three band Glockenklang! It will, after many years, match its sister MIJ!

    I adore my Power Jazz Bass Specials!

      Oh nice! :)

       

      As my bass originally had one large hole for a three way switch, rather than fill the hole I'm going to replace the blend knob on my Glockenklang with a three way switch again. I'd prefer the blend, but that hole is a bit big! Switch should be arriving today, finger's crossed!

  3. I have accepted an offer from a friend to play in his karaoke band. I have to learn like 40 songs for tonight...

      I wish you all the best! There's nothing like the feeling of flying on the edge of your seat! 

      I was once called up by a mate who had 8 hours to put together a band for a headline gig for a show where the main act pulled out at the last minute.  The guitarist we managed to get hadn't even heard most of the rock songs we needed for the set! 

      It can be done and I look back on the evening fondly as it was tense, but also so much fun as the audience were told what had happened. Good luck, you'll be fine!

      @andydye - Aww niiiiiiiiiice! - Funnily, I've reviewed a cheap jazz for an upcoming video in Bass Gear Magazine - and now I want a Jazz bass! I don't have one in my collection either! I'd be tempted too!

       

      @eude - yeah, he certainly does! Now I can't stop thinking about them ha ha!!

       

      @andydye , @eude - Thank you for asking! I think my Doodle (Sally @Rich!!)  headless is going to get a sister. Another headless 6, but I've been playing with the design a bit. Some sculpting here and there and a really nice theme across the instrument that should hopefully be pretty eye catching as well as ergonomic. Nothing daft though, Jon and I like to stay tasteful! 

       

      But likewise, I'm running out of body parts to export!

      Sadly I can' make it over this weekend, so it was all the better that I saw you at the Liverpool show! 

      Have a great one!

  9. I've recently started recording all my own review videos for Bass Gear Magazine based in Ohio. Yes, I still write for Bass Player Magazine as I have been every month for the last (nearly) two and a half years, but I would love for you to follow this magazine and YouTube channel too!

      If you can find a really good example, see if you can gran a Cort GB75JH. The J pickup is pants, but the Low B is insane.

      Empty space? I leapt on a TC C300 going cheap the other day. Bargain and brilliant!

      I've been very lucky, but not without a huge amount of hard work. I've been a professional musician for over ten years now (not long compared to some) and although I've had the odd blip, caused by outside influences, I would say that yes, I adore my job(s). It was a kid dream to think that my bass could pay my mortgage - and here I am! Thank you for the thoughtful words BillyBass :)

  24. What would be a good preamp/modeller/driver/DI to go straight into a PA?  Before everyone starts naming bespoke, top of the range items, please bear in mind that the budget is low.  When I say low, I mean that I was looking at a Behringer BDI21, low.

    1. Dood

      Dood

      My emergency Go To is the Mooer (or Fender) Micro DI. No EQ controls on it at all, but it does have a speaker emulator that works very well for bass. Straight to PA and let the sound guy do the EQ work. Thats said, the Behringer is absolutely fine and up at volume in a mix, no one will know.

  25. I am an independent (freelancing) music gear video reviewer and demonstrator. If you own or know of a brand who are looking to have video footage produced for social media, drop me a line. I’d be interested in working with you.

    Maybe you are a shop wanting to show off basses for sale, or are a small company producing pedals, a massive worldwide brand wanting quality media by someone who knows what they are talking about or simply want a company introduction video; let’s have a chat.

    I’m also working on producing voice over media as I have a studio set up here too.

      The last 3 years have aged me considerably, it's only these last few months I feel I've started getting younger again. Long story! ") - Thank you for the PM :) :)
