  1. Interesting. I didn't know about the book. Do you happen to know the title?
  2. You know it makes sense!
  3. Not meaning to divert away from this topic, but I've been enjoying AC/DC's "Brian Johnson - A Life On The Road" series of interviews on Sky Arts (AXS TV)...
  4. Mmmmmm...... another bass! 👍🤑👍
  5. Nice Hohner 'The Jack'. I always fancied one of these back in the day but never quite got on with headless basses at the time. Mind you, in respect of strings on a fretless, I have to say I've mainly always used rounds on my various fretlesses (apart from the EUB). I've tried flats in the past but just found the sound a little too 'dull' or 'muffled' for my own taste/style. In fact, at the recent South-East Bass Bash -- to quote @BreadBin -- we both agreed that "...moves should be made to start the Fretless Deviants register for all of us round wound users..."
  6. Amazingly low price for such a good bass! Have another bump.
  7. Have another bump! As a long time owner of a TUNE TWB-6 (and also an SWB-4), I can definitely atest as to how good these basses are. A 5-string TUNE would obviously sit very nicely between my two but, sadly, I'm not in the market for purchasing any more basses - at least not at the moment. Best of luck with the sale.
  8. Great day (again) at the Bass Bash and, as has been said, BIG thanks to @Hamster (and Mrs Hamster), @silverfoxnik, @cetera for their efforts in getting this all together. Great to catch up with old 'chatters(!) and meet some new ones. Also thanks to Matt ( @Wombat ) for letting me try the WL-20 wireless kit. From his previous post, I can confirm it certainly does work with active basses (and here was I thinking I got away with adding any more to my GAS!!) See y'all at the next one!

  14. Many congrats, Hz! Amazing looking bass. I'm curious as to what string guages you have on there?
  15. Yep, still on the list but there's a slight chance recording duties may put the kibosh in this. I'm still waiting to hear 😕 That said, I note there still may not be quite enough bodies overall to make it viable (only 7 on last showing)...?
