  1. I use an bicycle inner tube, cut down and tied into a kind of nest. Works very well

    My new Pointies- 80’s/early 90’s Japanese Porn

    Was having the P pick-up the 'wrong' way-round for tonal reasons or fashion?

    Speaker wiring and extension cab question?

    I'm no expert, but I be surprised if there was any difference in performance or sound. I expect manufacturers choose 4 or 16 ohms depending on which is cheapest, which itself will probably be determined by the most commonly used in their other products or which the speaker manufacturer sells most of. The only way to be sure is to take your combo apart and see what the label says.

    Speaker wiring and extension cab question?

    Yes. Either that, or the two internal speakers are 16 ohms each and wired in parallel.

    Knobs for unusual shaft

    Thanks for all the replies. I've actually managed to use two "normal" knobs with grub screws - just wrapped a fair bit of plumbers tape around them. The neck is currently in s g-clamp in an attempt to fix the bow. Oh, and I'm going to ignore the huge cracks in the body and call it road wear! What I didn't mention is that this is actually the bass I learned on, and was my Christmas present in 1989! It's been at a mates house for years in less than perfect conditions.

    Knobs for unusual shaft

    I've recently required an old Marlin Slammer bass which had some unusually shaped, small pot shafts. I need a couple of knobs for it, can anyone point me in the right direction for some suitable new knobs?

    Bass options for a 4yr old!

    What's the scale length on that? You could probably use the BEAD strings off a five string set and tune to EADG. Nice - I'd like one of those to keep in the car as an emergency bass

    Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino Bass sound

    It's a lovely bass sound on that album. A Burns Sonic I believe. According to Wikipedia, the bass parts were played by Alex Turner on a number of tracks.

    Hofner ignition violin bass

    I've got an Ignition Club bass, which is identical to the violin bass other than the shape. It needed a decent set up (intonating it was tricky*) and I put on some (expensive) La Bella flat wounds on it for extra sixtiesness. It does 60s Garage Rock, 'Beatles' and folky/acoustic very well. My main bass is a Precision - the Horner serves really well as something quite different to that. Is it versitile? No. Do I like it? Yes, a lot. *If you get one, I'd be happy to pass on what I learned about intonating these. Drop me PM

    Eastwood Airline Pocket Bass

    I like it a lot. I'd be interested to know how the string tension feels on such a scale.

    I've been listening to this band a lot over summer. Great stuff. They're touring the UK in Autumn.

    Dead Roundwounds is a good band name.

    Do any dead roundwound lovers have tips for reading new strings in the event of snapping or buying a new bass?

    It's plec not pick

    And it's a scratchplate not a pickguard. I'll accept plecguard though.
