    Aria- making a comeback?

    Admit it Andy, when you tried mine out at the SE Bass Bash the last couple of times you've flippin' loved it!

    As you should. They are wonderful basses. Sorry but this won't help your affliction at all!

    Fun little 30 bass comparison

    That’s not far off my top 3. The Marusczyk jazz maybe shaded the MTD out of the top 3. Maybe the Lakland (still hate those oval bridge plates, though). What surprised me more were some of the ones which were distinctly ‘meh” to my ears or which I actively disliked... the Foderas, the Smiths, Alembic...

    Covers that 'made' the Original

    This was the first version I ever heard - Marmalade. Not half bad.
  5. If it’s any consolation to your OCD, that’s grain in the body and flame in the headstock. The grain does still run along the length of the neck. No one, and I mean no one, in their right mind builds a neck with the wood grain running across it!

    Covers that 'made' the Original

    I never ever realised that I Monster’s sublime Daydream In Blue was a cover. Here’s the original which shows how much better the cover is!

    Covers that 'made' the Original

    And it turns out they’ve done pretty good covers of Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head... And Britney’s Toxic too!

    Covers that 'made' the Original

    Time to post the cover of Duffy’s Mercy by The Third Degree again. This version sounds like it should have been the original and recorded around 1971... PS, that isn’t really the vocalist. The singer on this track is actually a beardy folkie type from Winchester called Jon Allen.
  9. Always wondered what wood the “ugly stick” was made out of! 😉😂
  10. Surprised not to see Ariaensis Superbassii included on that list. Or Walbassist Chiropractori for that matter! 😂
  11. Science geek alert! Some interesting info here... https://preschem.com/why-timber-changes-colour/
  12. Wow, Marco! Just WOW! Wonder how it would look Under a thin varnish?

    Classic ITV Theme Tunes

    Was musing on how great this tune is and decided to check out whether Allmusic.com had and sort of entry. Turned out they did. It certainly threw a few interesting names into the mix... Drums - Liam Genockey Of Steeleye Span fame Percussion - Tristan Fry Of Sky fame Wakka wakka Guitar - Vic Elmes (who was in prog band zZebra with Genockey) But the name which really caught my attention was the bass player from zZebra who provides that great bass line. A certain Mr John McCoy, later of Samson, Gillan and Mammoth. Saw him playing with Gillan on the Future Shock/Double Trouble tour. What a commanding presence! Great P bass tone too!

    Geddy's Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass

    Now less than £15 on Amazon! I might just have bought a copy too... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Geddy-Lees-Beautiful-Book-Bass-ebook/dp/B07GDMJH3K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1550089844&sr=8-1&keywords=geddy+lee's+big+beautiful+book+of+bass
  15. "*EZO or ES Method – Energy/Space Method of wood, metal, and ctr. treatment. Modifications: mass crystallisation (wood), resonating in human emotional range. Sound effects: real presence with element of reverb and chorus. Developed by Mr. Papian." I was reading this in the ad and I thought, that's familiar. Then I remembered, it's one of Jon Anderson's lyrics from side three of Tales for Topographic Oceans.
