  1. how do I end up checking out a BBN5 II on ebay... you guys are a bad influence.
  2. killer looks, passive, humbuckers and split coil delight and separate volume/tone controls for each pup - thanks Andy, I will now, like you have, obsess over it and not get any sleep, yeah, cheers ...
  3. @Al Krow Andy is obviously right, what is quite special about this cheap BB is it's a smaller body than the more fancy (or later) BB models but more importantly, it just seems perfect: light, super-well balanced and for the money I paid for it on here it's ridiculously good in terms of every note ringing like it was a £1.5k instrument. I bought it on here from a chap who in the advert said he bought it on here as well so it's changed hands a couple of times, I think I'm not letting it go. Adding shielding in the cavity would make it tour-ready. Yamaha FTW.
  4. I am intrigued by the blue one, I assume there is a separate thread on it with specs, photos and sound samples - Andy, share the link, please. (If such a thread does not exist, how dare you!)
  5. what next, eh? you gonna post a video when you also play the drums?! you're seriously killing it man, a pleasure to listen to and watch the videos - and your P with a pick spiel is a pretty good GAS-killer, I'm off to play some more instead of scrolling through the for sale section
  6. it's this song's first birthday, I think it fits very well in this thread - righteous anger for all the valid reasons:
  7. some of my favourite rock and roll songs in this thread, love it! from Ministry's Psalm69 album Jesus built my hotrod is awesome but there is also TV II, my earliest memory of thinking WHAT WHY HOW YEEEAAAAH!!!, also completely relentless: There is fresh p****d off music too, I really don't want anyone to miss out on this London's trio righteous anger, and yes, my colleagues can get me worked up on Teams too, I am struggling to imagine what it will be like when we're back in the same room...
  8. How about Teethgrinder by Therapy? :
  9. years back when Microbass II was my way to play along to tracks without audio interface and DAW I used to plug in beyerdynamic 990 pro into the headphone out on the EBS unit - all the bass you can wish for, all day long, just beautiful, ten years later I still regard these headphones as one of the best out there, hard to beat for comfort, sound and durability (and price). PS. still have the microbass II, still love it, it might outlive me it's so well-built; headphones are on I think fourth pair of replaceable cushions, as good as new
  10. proof (if one was ever needed) that I spend way too much time on basschat - just watching the very fresh demo of this pedal from Nate Navarro, he dives into other users' presets and I see 'quatschmacher', hmm, where did I see this word before, I scratch my (balding) head, a-ha! Your preset comes up at 4.38:
  11. Well, the record is out and the only gripe I have with it is that it feels too short - otherwise, love it, a great trip into jazz-ish experimental territory, on repeat listening for me at the moment. https://open.spotify.com/album/5fsq4qeIWboRRPG7mGGfxr?si=9mWvGLNjQT6tkm3VU38jNA
  12. I'm surprised to see the phrase "enough basses" slip past BCs profanity filter.
  13. Wow. Great work and what a brilliant write up of the project. Thank you.
  14. Well turns out I really knew very little about Pino's gigs, glad I posted this, more stuff to check out! I am a kid/victim of the 90s so even though I knew who he was I only got really interested when he started playing with Trent and toured with NIN (initially was sad to see Justin being replaced...).
  15. There's more videos on Mr Mills' youtube channel promoting their forthcoming record, some very creative use of effects, capo on bass, more cool basses and remarkable musicianships. Hard to watch, I agree the quirky camerawork may get annoying. I referred to it as jazz but it kind is out there in the free, genre-less, let's make music we like sphere, closest to jazz but hardly traditional. Great thing about Pino he's done almost all the genres now - you can like him for ballad rock and RnB, or hate him for that and tune into his NIN and jazz stuff. I love it all, looking up his bass playing credits my ears / mind opened up to e.g. John Mayer and D'Angelo, the latter I don't think I would ever consider listening to.
  16. another genre Pino can add to his ever-growing list of gigs, forgive my ignorance if I missed him doing jazz before. I for one welcome Pino the jazz overlord: sweet, sweet tones from his famous fretless musicman, i like
  17. brixton academy always seemed a little too loud, after the dead weather gig in 2009 I thought I damaged my hearing permanently (fortunately not, or so I think...), I answered the phone a lot back then at work and could barely hear what people said , shouting back, for at least three days
  18. Jeff claims this is the biggest bass design leap or however he puts it since jazz bass, I suppose it's 'controversial' statements that are the marketing ploy here, and Greg from basstheworld on youtube says the pickups panning and adding or reducing volume does something special to the sound other basses dont. I WANT ONE TOO. But as others said, you have to buy one to try it as they are not really out there in the shops (irrelevant in covid times, I know...). Slim jazz-like neck is also not my thing so maybe I just need to forget it... *checks the 'for sale' thread, just in case*
  19. i tried a Duvoisin at the london bass show and these pickups are special, my jaw dropped a little at how they make the notes ring, articulate, that quirky bridge may add some to that too. this one looks very nice, good luck with the sale.
  20. joyous punk from London: I've had the album on repeat for a while now, it's just great: https://open.spotify.com/album/7ACE2v21yYt28fIF3TD1xZ?si=lsKka1zFRfG6n3iyi2LOLQ
  21. binky_bass, guess no more, you are right, quick google search directed me to a which? article from last year: "In fact, just three of the 119 products we tracked - that's 1% - were at their very cheapest price on Black Friday." there is a site in the country of my origin called fakefriday - some guy put it up and it essentially has bots scanning tech websites, you can look for a product and see if it really is a deal. obviously, it almost never is
  22. WOW looks like an absolute masterpiece, won't be picking up my jaw any time soon we need a demo, go on, just the intro to Jeremy and we can start a cult in your name
  23. if you can't feel it under your hands when playing then I would say live with it but email pics with concerns of QA to the shop, you may get a discount/store credit in the process but we also want pics of the whole bass!
