  1. Found it. Looks nice and, yes, less common to find them with the perspex covers. Here's me with my 4040, purchased new in 1973 for the princely sum of £155. Only thing I have left now is the receipt.
  2. Yes, indeed, as mentioned previously, Judee Sill was a unique and exceptional singer-songwriter -- almost coming close to the queen of all of 'em (imho)... Joni Mitchell.
  3. Hifi - right, then - I've still got my Pioneer PL12D record deck and a pair of Leak 2020 speakers, bought new in 1974 (46 years ago) and still going strong. You just try telling that to the young folks today and they won't believe you!
  4. My thoughts exactly, 'specially as I had the very same amp years ago.
  5. I always fancied a Kubicki X-Factor and was reminded of this when I saw Little Feat in Atlanta years ago. Kenny Gradney was playing one and I have to say it sounded pretty good to me.
  6. I had this Goodfellow 'Player' bass on loan for a while. Hand-made by Bernie in 1987, Herringbone finish and came with a Goodfellow case. £1695.
  7. My Ric 4001 bought new in 1974 from Sound City, London (£325 w/case). Had it 7 years and sold it on for pastures new. Why, oh why???
  8. Two drummers? Hah, that's nothin'...!
  9. I've been following these on Youtube myself. Lee Sklar is such a wonderful bass player and quite obviously a genuinely nice bloke. I particularly loved the recent Livingston Taylor vid (day 62) - after all the great bass parts he's shown, including the Billy Cobham Spectrum numbers, Toto, Jackson Browne (that phrase in Doctor My Eyes!) - and he goes and messes up on what is essentially "a nice easy country number"...! Thanks also to @NoirBass for starting and maintaining this thread. It makes for a great reference tool.
  10. Control Rooms in Brentwood, Essex, are aiming to open 4th July (bring on the fireworks!). Clean and tidy rooms with air con. I rehearse there with a jazz quartet so the 2-metre rule shouldn't be a problem. I understand they won't be using a couple of their smaller rooms but may be ok for bands up to 5 or 6 members.
  11. Hi Jimmy, nice to see an Atlantan(!) here. I used to love visiting my cousin there years ago. Enjoy Basschat, it's a great site and very friendly community.
  12. Yep, I wouldn't mind seeing how the bass is doing, myself.
  13. Indeed, it is a TW-300 though can't say there are any scratches behind the nut or dodgy notching on the bridge. Maybe it's one of those that you eventually got right!
