  1. The nut slots should be cut out in a U shape, so you shouldn't have a problem unless the channels are flat bottomed.
  2. Based on G&L L2000 but with: 24 fret neck, 38mm nut, banjo frets on a blank maple fretboard vol-blend-bass cut-treble cut series/parallel/single switch for each pickup passive, no active or treble boost circuit
  3. Andy is the Chuck Norris of bass identification.
  4. Most of my basses are Japanese, with a German and an American in there too. Amp and cabs are 1st gen English Ashdown ABM. For build quality in relation to price, I've found Japanese instruments impossible to beat.
  5. Parallel is the classic J bass tone. Compulsory. Series is a nice extra to have as a bonus, but it's not vital. It's like being on 10 and having an 11 to go to, but you need to have the classic 1 to 10 first.
  6. The curse of the internet age is too many of us overthink these things where, before, we used to just get on with it. "Key types" for genres just ends up with people trying to live up to tired and boring clichés because it's the safe option. @Delberthotis bang on the money. Find a bass you like and learn to play it. It's that simple. Be yourself, play like yourself and flip the begrudgers. Be interesting.
  7. Yeah, they were stoppable after all. Despite everything they bring with them, I would always prefer to have a real drummer. Drum machines are ok in certain circumstances and certain genres but, really, live music is best served totally live. A lot of programmed are either too basic (i.e. programmed by someone who doesn't play drums and feels less is more and programs too little just because they don't really understand what good drumming brings to music) or too complicated (i.e. programmed by someone who doesn't play drums and feels more is more and programs too much just because they don't really understand what good drumming brings to music and because they can). Even getting the drummer in a studio to record their tracks so you can rehearse them would put you in a better position than you are now.
  8. Or... The Seventies and Nineties Denunciation Band
  9. And then the same again for sales based outside the UK so we know which ones are going to have VAT and import duties factored in

  11. I decided about 10 years ago that I would never pay over €50 for a gig ticket again. It took away all the anxiety over trying to justify spending huge money on 90 minutes of entertainment versus all the crap that comes along with gigs in cavernous venues. If it's overpriced, I simply don't go, that is it. I love gigs and still go to lots of gigs but, like @Leonard Smallssays, they're ones where you're up close and personal. You don't need superstar names to be a part of amazing gigs. Sometimes, I go abroad to a city for a cluster of gigs on sequential nights and get gigs and a holiday for little more (sometimes less) than some of you are paying for you and your spouse to see one gig in the Enormodome. The best so far was Hamburg a few years ago, saw Reef, Voivod, Lygo, Killing Joke and then Therapy? on successive nights and the most expensive ticket was KJ at €32, I think. Five gigs and a holiday beats one gig in my book 🙂
  12. Personally, I'd dig up! 😁
  13. I saw this and thought of you 🙂 https://www.adverts.ie/drum-kits/1963-premier-drums-all-original-vintage-drum-kit-with-snare/25150915
  14. I got three clip-on tuners out of that scheme a couple of weeks ago. I use Elixir strings but you get points for Evans drum heads and ProMark sticks, anything in the D'Addario brand range, which all contribute to it. The free postage was a nice touch, too.
