    That question.... Money

    IIRC, we did a social club gig , got £300 , roughtly the same as a pub gig ( although we also did pubs that paid £200 and £250 ) but since they were virtually paying pub prices, our playing lasted the same time. If they wanted more playing time they can pay for it. I wouldn't call a plumber out and expect to pay him the same for 4 hours work as i would if he worked for 2 hours

    Apparently Markbass are to make bass guitars

    Dont know why they're building a P bass - safe perhaps ? Still, i like their amps and cabs, and dont mind the colour scheme

    Cheers Davey lad. I dont know much about MM's but it didnt quite tally up. The body looked like a precision but with a pair of MM style pups. Mind you i only looked for 10 mins or so...., at 1hr 27, there's a better view and i can see its neither Precision or Stingray

    If you google Youtube The Firm Live at Hammersmith Odeon 1984, looks like a Dual Humbucker Musicman fretless, but looks more like a Precision witn dual MM pickups.

    Not everything about the bass is great .....

    No matter - we both think it's a good 'un. Not particularly a bass players album, but great songs. IMO of course

    Think It's Grand Tourismo - and a good album, yes.
  11. That is a shame young Les. Bluddy Squiers
  12. It's only a squier, squire. You can use a shovel instead of a screwdriver - no harm done

    Tina Weymouth BBC bass programme in Jan

    Keith Richards at least 10 years older than her and looks even better
  15. I have a couple of 3 position mini switches, 6 poles undereneath. Unlike an ON-ON switch i have which actually states the words ON-ON somewhere on the switch, the two 3 way switches have no such stamping on them ( why FFS ? ) So.. i need an ON-ON-ON switch, but i need to test them to see if they might be ON-OFF-ON which would be no good to me. The switch is needed to click between Parallel Bucker / Series Bucker / Single Coil ( just the one pickup, by the way ) Got a multi Meter but need some leccie guru to tell me how to test - what range - etc, which poles , blah blah Wade in folks. There's a dougnut in it for anyone that can help. There's only one bite out of it too, so nearly new Ta

    Unique voice / acquired taste .. that rings a bell. Oh yea, Kate Bush thread

    Blood On The Tracks. Nothing like trauma in a songwriters life to bring out the most fabulous songs. Listen to the words of Simple Twist Of Fate from that album

    Yeah good prog. But i am a fan of SC's tubbing. Tight as a Mallards chuff. Listen to The Police - Next To You

    A Conundrum

    I only know that i wouldnt join the pay band. That music is all over the place. There's absolutely no genre to speak of, unlike your other band of electric pop, which you will know exactly what you're gonna get. What type of audience is the pay band trying to please ..or attract ?

    NBD: Fender PBAC-100

    I love the A/E bass , i just dont know much about them. The HMT above seems to have a very different headstock to the A/E

    Steinberger Doubleneck

    It's hard to imagine just how huge that neck is, front to back. That thing is like a broken pencil. Pointless
