  1. I'm still up for it. And the gear abstinence challenge as well, so that's 6.
  2. I'm still in, I really have no excuse for buying anything else (other than plain old GAS) so I'm going to stick at it. Been a tough couple of weeks though, because I'm apparently not bright enough to stop looking at stuff even though I can't buy it.
  3. That's why I have one of these: A lot of my mates are geeks anyway so they can fix their own.

    Nice Body...

    Yeah, it did occur to me that the coloured pencil centre bits wouldn't be very hard. The main thing it did was make me wonder what else you could make a body out of, skateboards sounds cool.

    Check the video, he really made it out of pencils.

    I know it's not a bass, but it could be: Video:

    T Shirts

    I wear this fair bit. Shame the speakers aren't quite right, let's pretend they're some studio monitors.
  8. So, hopefully it's not too late to sign up for this, but I am definitely IN. I've got a custom body for my Baritone ordered and deposit paid last year, so that will be a nice thing when it arrives and it looks like that is within the rules, but I am not buying anything new in 2019. I've got more than enough gear, and really I need to sell of some bits and pieces that I'm not using as well.
  9. Best purchase was the Elwood 5a from here, as photographed for it's Basschat ad, now wearing flats and I love it to bits. Only got two basses, the other is a blue Jake 5a+, must take some photos of them together sometime. Not really sure I've got a worst this year, done pretty well. Got a nice MIM Tele as well, that was about it.

    November Composition Challenge - VOTING!

    I’m planning to have a go at some next year, and for me you can be as a apocalyptic as you like, I don't really do subtle (another reason i’ve only ever managed one entry). Go for something we can rock to!

    Firewire or USB?

    I haven’t looked for a while so that’ll be right, also more options if you go for a Mac (which I didn’t, but I seem to have got away with it so far). The USB-C thing does my head in slightly, it’s the same connector but not all the hardware with it does both protocols? Not sure how that makes sense. If you get a laptop with USB-C only, you can plug a Thunderbolt 3 device in, but it won’t work.

    Firewire or USB?

    With newer machines with Thunderbolt 3 you need 2 adapters to use Firewire, FW -> TB2 and TB2 -> TB3. There aren't a huge number of Thunderbolt interfaces yet though, and they are usually the high end ones.

    Firewire or USB?

    Thunderbolt for me, the latency is great and I'll never get near the bandwidth limit. I think as @BigRedX said, that's sort of the real successor to Firewire if you want something that's solid and (probably, depends on your hardware) not affected by all the other stuff we plug in.
  14. I'm from West Yorkshire and I lived in Leeds for 15+ years, and yes it's a lot cheaper, but if you are studying music and can afford London there is sooo much more going on. I still wouldn't live there for any money, but I get why people do.
