  1. [quote name='molan' timestamp='1502916212' post='3354410'] Can't see a price for the Joseph Kaye - has it been sold? [/quote] It´s still here, I just added the price.
  2. Very highly recommended bassplayer and super nice guy. Came all the way up here to collect a bass, very smooth transaction.
  3. Thanks for all the PMs, not really into trades unless you have a really nice six string bass with 34", 18mm string spacing, under 4,5kg and from a "high end" luthier. That is the only thing I might consider.
  4. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  5. https://www.thomann.de/uk/harley_benton_bz_6000_nt.htm https://www.thomann.de/uk/ibanez_gsr206b_wnf.htm If you can handle the 35" scale I would go for the Harley Benton- it sounds really good (sometimes a bit heavy). If you are in for a 34" scale bass, I would go for the Ibanez. It does not have as much character as the Harley Benton but it is still a good bass.

  7. I have an alder and an ash V7 and they are very different, that is how it is supposed to be. If there was no difference, everyone would use alder as it grows much quicker than ash and is therefore much cheaper.
  8. [quote name='Wilco' timestamp='1499076839' post='3328938'] I was thinking of off loading my Sire Marcus Miller V7 Vintage 5 string complete with Sire gigbag. Has an 18mm string spacing & would come in at under half your budget! PM me if interested. Cheers, Wilco [/quote] My vote is for the Sire, best basses under 1000 quid hands down. They are suitable for any pro gig.
  9. Buy "Rockabilly Slap Bass" by Lee Rocker and go for it.
  10. [quote name='Bolo' timestamp='1499201538' post='3329962'] As death/thrash metalhead since age 13, turning 41 next week and have searched but found only a handfull of jazz tunes that mean anything to me. Many thrash/death outfits take jazz inspiration into their music, Pestilence and Death come to mind for instance. I picked up psychobilly as a distraction next to my usual fare. Not intending to slow down anytime soon. [/quote] The most "jazzy" death metal band has to be Cynic. Much more so than Death. Even when the Cynic guys played on Chuck Schuldiners records, it was not really as "jazzy" as Cynic. This music is of course very much more metal than anything else. They used some unusual chords not often found in metal, unusual bass sound and "funky" bass playing by Sean Malone and unusual note choices for their soloing. Sean Malones project Gordian Not expanded even more into "non-metal" territory. Jarzombek from Spastic Ink (who also played guitar on the first (and maybe even the second) Guardian Knot record) was also very much into "unusual" stuff.
  11. [quote name='Geek99' timestamp='1499110493' post='3329292'] Down to the notoriously bad blood between them all and the unceremonious way that a heavily drug addicted Adler was ejected maybe ? [/quote] Just having read the Slash bio, I think he really liked Steven, Izzy and Duff. No bad blood at all. Steven was just so high all the time that they had to fire him.
  12. [quote name='Geek99' timestamp='1499093001' post='3329104'] Steven Adler is adamant in his book that he taught Slash; [/quote] I never read Stevens book... it might be true but he is not credited in Slashs book.
  13. True but I am struggling to call Andys music "Jazz". It is more like world music or improvised music.
