  1. Bought a combo from Marc- great communication & really easy to deal with. Top guy.
  2. This is a goldmine!!! Many thanks @Bilbo
  3. Bought a hi-pass filter from Simon- really easy no-stress transaction & prompt communication.
  4. Ooooooof they are both killer. The bottom one is Batman's bass.
  5. Cory Henry's Funk Apostles. Sharay Reed on bass. They are rad.
  6. Likewise, I thought this would be a big deal when I bought my first hardware synth... However if you spend a bit of time getting to know the instrument and the basics of synthesis, I reckon you can make a preset-less synth work in live situations. I just finished doing a run of musical theatre shows using my Minibrute- I had three patches that I used, which took about 5-10 seconds to dial in. I do the same thing on most other synth bass gigs- just set up the patch on the fly! Do you play in situations which require a lot of patch changes/ very specific sounds? I honestly wouldn't let this put you off the above! I only ever play 25 key synths for bass duties (and quite often as part of my 'proper' keyboard rig). There have been occasions when it would have been nice to have a couple of extra pitches... but it's pretty rare (and usually when I'm playing too many notes). The Ultranova sounds pretty mega though.
  7. Ah okay, that's interesting! What kind of patches do you use on the B3? Do you use it to shape the tone at all or do you rely on your amp E.Q to do that?
  8. Haha, worth a shot! I don't think I can justify a whole new instrument at the minute 😞
  9. Thanks @TheRev, that's really helpful.
  10. Hi all, I've got a few DB gigs coming up which I'll need to be amplified for: I was wondering if I could get away with using my Scarlett 2i2 interface/Macbook setup into my amp, rather than buying a dedicated DB preamp? Have any of you folks done this before? I use this rig quite regularly on electric, but I would be interested if anyone has any thoughts on it r.e. the big bass. I'm using a Shadow SH951pickup, if that has any bearing on it! Any advice would be much appreciated! Ta
  11. I think it's Adam Blackstone on bass- he's a monster.
  12. Interesting how Mingus polarises opinion- I was hooked from the first listen! What I hear in his work is absolute artistic conviction and an beautiful, organic melding of African-American musical traditions. Check out the composition/form again- it's not a regular blues (definitely not 12 bars!) Cool melding of blues and jazz harmony, irregular phrase lengths, modulation to an unrelated key... more than meets the eye/ear. Great bass playing as well, he rocks a 6/8 metre.
