  1. All these years I thought that Sterling was a budget line from Musicman, like Sub.. rather than a model of bass...

  3. I'm not sure what's worse, trying to remember a song that you haven't played for over a year, or trying to work out a new song that you've never played.

      Yeah it can be a real slog, but the eureka moments hopefully make up for it at times!

  5. Music shops near London that sell speaker cables (not the bigger ones, the ones with tips like instrument cables)? Neither BassGallery or any Denmark Street shops have any listed. Andertons do, but its a bit further out 

    (Can't call anywhere as my phone is out of action until tomorrow)

      No worries guys I drove over to Andertons as it was only about 25mins away

      Just got someone to call the Yamaha store to see if they had any... the guy on the phone just suggested to use an instrument cable 😅

  7. Is anywhere doing pedal repairs at the moment? The person I've used previously isn't responding to emails.

  8. Continuity announcer on C5 has just described Home Alone as "the greatest Xmas movie ever made". I can't decide if that's complete boIIocks or complete and utter boIIocks.

      Are there really that many genuinely good contenders for title of best Xmas movie though haha?

  9. After months of mucking about on guitar because it was more interesting, I picked up one of my basses this evening and played.  It was so much more satisfying.  I'll always be a bass player.

      I started on guitar as a teenager and moved over to focusing mostly on bass after about a year or so, now I almost never play guitar. When I go back to guitar my instincts are so off

  10. How long do Fender typically keep models in production?
    I'm really interested in getting hold of a ultra jazz bass V in mocha burst in the next year or so but not sure if they'll still be manufacturing them.

      @ead unfortunate but true. I remember my mate had a MIM jazz when we were younger and it was a great bass, but I got one recently and didn't like it at all. Ended up trading it.

  13. What's the deal with 18V preamps, that just seems a total annoyance :/

    1. AinsleyWalker

      AinsleyWalker

      OH! I've not personally come across an 18v built-in preamp, my Stingray is 9v.

      What's the annoyance? A lot of preamps (and compressors like the cali76) have to be/can be powered up to 18v to allow for more headroom. A lot of power bricks can give a range of voltages from 9-18 so it's no big hassle really.

  15. I've been playing for 11 years now, mostly self taught and I know a fair bit of theory but I've never actually sat down and learnt scales/modes etc and it's about time I think. Got a friend who's a pro bass player helping me out but any advice/suggestions/resources would be appreciated!

    1. AinsleyWalker

      AinsleyWalker

      @Reggaebass oh that reminds me I have lots of similar books here that were given to me back when I started (I was a stubborn teenager and didn't want to learn scales/modes sigh) but better late than never! 
      Thanks for the suggestion

      Oh no of course, I just haven't bought a bass for almost 9 years now and I've been playing a Musicman for that time and have always wanted a Fender since I started playing :) But I'll definitely not write off the Sire!

      @RichOoh I've heard good things, and was actually looking at the natural finish version of this. Good price and looks gorgeous. Might hold out for a Fender of a similar price (the one that sold was a 2nd hand 5 string Jazz). May have found one...

      On that note, I'm buying a 5-string! Show me what you've got! (preferences: Fender Jazz, white or natural finish, but open to all offers)

  20. Hello. Is there any studio/sideman bass player here? ;) I want to ask what producers and engineers want from bass players today. I mean which basses, amps, effects and all king of gear is a must for session/studio player to provide the best demanding sounds and effortless quality in the stage/studio? Really need to change my gear to be most versatile for any scenario as possible. Many thanks! 

    1. AinsleyWalker

      Have a look at Dishan Abrahams, and the video he did with That Pedal Show. Super interesting video, gives a general insight into some of this stuff and the gear he uses and how he gets around certain situations (such as synth/keyboard sounds, he sometimes uses a Moog Lil Phatty but often pedals)

  21. Is it not against the rules to post an item for sale on here asking for the buyer to send money through Paypal Friends & Family? If not, it should be!! I see at least 1 scammer get called out on Facebook per week and it's ALWAYS because the buyer sent payment through F&F. 

    1. AinsleyWalker

      AinsleyWalker

      Fair enough.. I'm just sceptical as, while I've sold plenty on here, I've only really bought off of FB groups where F&F is banned and for good reason (the constant scamming I mentioned).
