    Just had it confirmed. It is to be showcased at NAMM! 🤸‍♂️
  2. I apologise if anyone has mentioned this before. I have only just found out about it. I'm assuming its getting showcased at NAMM and hopefully will be on sale soon after that. Dear Santa......
  3. The story of Anvil was a great movie!
  4. We watched it last night. Superb movie. I'm not a huge Queen fan but enjoyed it immensely. I realise a lot of the facts are substituted for artistic licence, but again, it was superb and Rami deserves an Oscar!
  5. The tone on Freewill is my favourite. When you hear it isolated, it makes me happy 😋

    I have a very eclectic taste in bass sounds, just as I have a very eclectic taste in music. I like many different tones, but admit to having a penchant for a dirty tone that is just right , without too much fuzz

    I guess you are right, although I love his sound, I hate Marmite! 🤢

    I realise this and maybe shouldn't have used that term, but as said above by Steve, a fairly flat sound, which isn't pushing too much top or bottom end
  9. Front pick up on a Jazz, seems to be the way to go

    The GED 2112 is a preamp and cant power your speaker. It can, however, be used to go straight to the desk and you could use monitors. The pedal option above is what I'm interested in. I reckon the preamp version would sound ok with an amp, especially if you set everything on the amp to neutral.
  11. Moving Pictures was when Geddy started using his J bass. Tom Sawyer was recorded with the '72 Jazz that he had picked up for $200

    If you watch the youtube videos of Geddy explaining why he reverted to Fenders, you would realise that he didn't set out to make his Fender sound like a Rick [sic]. He found an old '72 in a pawn shop and tried it. realised that he could get a wider range with the Fender and therefore changed his preference. As far as dreadful bass tones. Beauty is in the, in this case, ear of the beholder, so clearly its potatoes, potatos, tomatoes, tomatos. What's good for you, ain't necessarily good for me. I love Geddy's tone. I love Lemmy's tone and Entwistle had a great sound too. I don't generically love overdriven sounds, but I realise there is a place for them. This pedal can deliver far more than just giving you a Geddy sound. Its an overdrive and a damned good quality one at that.

    I love his bass tone and he is my all time bass hero. Lots of others obviously think so too, as he has gear with his name on it, but I guess we can't all like the same thing. Lemmy's tone is pretty similar.

    There is a Tech 21 Sans Amp Geddy Lee preamp on the market. This is the pedal version of it. I saw it on the internet and there is no mention of it anywhere. I am hoping it is to be showcased at the NAMM show soon and will be hopefully unleashed on us mere mortals soon after. I might add that the source of the leak is a Tech 21 showcase artist, so I'm believing it to be true

    Why do Pros use a P Bass...

    Sorry, but that’s just my opinion. I have fourteen basses and still love the P for the way it fits in
  18. Ashdown pedal for distortion. Needing to offload some gear and I am finding that I can’t play as much as I would like and this was bought a couple of years ago. Never been used outside tbe house. Immaculate condition. No box unfortunately, but I. can make sure it’s well packed

    For Sale: 2008 Fender Japan Geddy Lee Jazz Bass

    I can concur that the necks on these are incredible. I have one and I love it!

    first gig done!

    Well done man, that's great that you got back into it. My job means I don't get a chance to play, but its great to hear about people getting back into it!

    Who did you see live last?

    Seen Def leppard with Cheap Trick supporting at the Glasgow Hydro. Both bands were superb and I can honestly say, the sound was the best I have ever heard in a stadium gig. Maybe it was because we had good seats. I bought them for the Mrs, as a present. Actually, a birthday present that ended up being a Valentines present as I couldn't keep it secret any longer. Great gig!
  23. I am quite a prolific gig goer and like to think I have a fairly eclectic taste. I was wondering who you all have seen lately and what they were like. I only ask because last night we went to see the excellent Death Cab For Cutie in Glasgows 02. They were superb as expected. The support however, were, at least to us, rank rotten. They are called Chastity Belt and if you look them up on YouTube, they are passable, though not particularly my taste. Live however, they are dire. No stage craft, out of tune playing and singing, bum notes etc. You name it, they were afflicted by it. I would even go as far as saying, they are the worst band I've ever seen live on a big stage. Maybe they had a bad night, but somehow I don't think so. Let us know your experiences good or bad of others, as a warning/ tip so that we might go fore armed to future gigs.

    Why do Pros use a P Bass...

    Nothing fits in the mix quite like a P. Yes, lots of other basses have a larger range of sounds, for example, a J bass, but the P just sits in the mix better.
