  1. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/apr/06/pino-palladino-pop-greatest-bassist-adele-elton-the-who?fbclid=IwAR06F0gaXCrwWcK_d9ANJ7tS8RDFM8j0clKmynRCNkFjy9rRBsCNC0lqMtQ
  2. I have purchased the first one and just tried a 5er and my double bass through it with a TC RH450. At £300 this is a fantastic piece of kit. The purchase was as smooth as could be as well.
  3. A rather nerdy exercise this morning for myself as GAS issues being experienced. Thought I'd save the result here in case it's useful for anyone else. Aimed to get the nut and the bridge at the same level, end line is Series 2 (and GA) body end. Series 2 is at more of an angle in the image, so would be slightly wider ....
  4. Has anyone come across 5 string laminated basses? I’m considering going for a 5er but don’t want to throw big money at it until I’ve tried one for a while. Thx
  5. I had this issue previously with a new bridge. It means you need to get the bridge fitted to the bass front more closely. You could try this yourself with fine sandpaper if you’re brave. There are several YouTube videos on the topic. The strings you are fitting might be higher tension if you’re fitting a new set. Good luck
  6. I’ll be honest, I haven’t read this entire thread. But if you’re looking to spend ~£1k and find the more expensive EUBs out of reach, do consider buying an actual double bass. You’ll get a good second hand laminated bass or even solid wood example at that level. You’ll learn far more in terms of technique using the real thing. Good luck....
  7. I recently picked up a Cort C5. Narrow/flat neck, 3 band eq and very light. Would be a good intro 5er. Cort make a lot of the Ibanez and Squire basses I believe.

    The Westone is the only one I owned from new and gigged in the 80s. Never let me down and doesn’t appear to have a scratch on it.
  9. Would it be possible for you to post the weight pls.
  10. I’m thinking about a Supernatural 5er. I have a concern about how much one would weigh. Any owners of such machines about that can comment? Also, the GA24 body seems smaller, but do they neck dive given the shorter upper body dimension? Grateful for any info.
  11. Funny, I ordered this In a 5er a few days back. £645 from Thomann

    I have no evidence, but the previous owner told me it appeared on Trent d’Arby’s second album. It’s an ‘84 I believe.

    Indeed, I think some rehoming is due.
