  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.
  14. Best fretless basses out there IMO.
  15. [quote name='Geek99' timestamp='1499082997' post='3328995'] was slash not taught quite a bit by Steven Adler ? [/quote] I read his autobiography and as far as I can remember (read it twice), Slash had guitar lessons for a couple of months and then decided to do his own thing. He learned by playing along with his favourite records and by pratice with his bandmates.
  16. [quote name='peteb' timestamp='1498080162' post='3322464'] Initial thing that I picked up is that RS says that boosting mids will make your sound muddy and not stand out in the mix. He also said that he couldn't see why anyone would want to cut bass or treble frequencies. Hardly the accepted view of many people who frequent Basschat... [/quote] This is his philosophy and it shows in his basses. That sets them apart from other brands. It is a love it/hate it thing. Having owned two Sadowskys I can say that this was not for me, though.
  17. The goal is to have a solid foundation that a student can develop further if he wants to. You can show them what they have to know, but to become a decent Jazz player, you have to spend a lot of time practicing and you would have to join a Jazz band. Anyway, a lot of "Metalheads" who just want to play Metal change their taste and they can rely on the foundation- understanding the concept of Jazz.
  18. Every musical biography is different. It depends on what you like and what you want to do. It also depends on the people you choose to work with and who is availible to you, where you are located, who (if anyone) you choose as a teacher and other things. There are self-taught musicians who are just incredible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvKUttYs5ow Most autodidacts however are more limited and concentrate on one style of music that they perfect. Take Malmsteen for example. He quit school and played the guitar like crazy. Cleary influenced by Blackmoore, he invented a new take on shred guitar. He never wanted to play Jazz. Same thing with Slash. He was mainly an autodidact and just wanted to play Rock. Petrucci from Dream Theater was studiying a Berklee College of Music (for a semester) but he never was into Jazz as were almost all of his fellow students. Instead he found one of the very few drummers on the campus that were into Rock and Progressive Rock- Mike Portnoy. The rest is history. Playing Jazz can be very useful to yourself as a musician, but only if you want to go in that direction. My advanced students will definately come into contact with Jazz (Walking Bass, playing melodies, improvisation, vocabulary) but it is up to them if they want to pursue it further. There is no point in studying thousands of hours of Jazz impro if you want to play Metal.
  19. I have used mine for years, really good, especially considering the price!
  20. [quote name='leroybasslines' timestamp='1498302190' post='3323710'] Hi there! I'm looking to change my mittels for weichs, so I'm interested! Roughly how old are these strings? [/quote] I would advice most players to go for the weich for pizz. They are just much easier to play. Spiros last forever. Some guy have played them for 10-20 years without any problem.
  21. I will try some La Bella black nylons soon, I will also give the new Gold tapewounds a go.
