    Special gift needed for DB player

    How about reaching out to one of his favourite bassists to see if you can buy a Skype lesson for him? It’s amazing how many of the best players offer them, especially if you email and explain.

    bass stand for small stages

    I've got a bass bar and it works well. Mine looks very similar to the base of a music stand with a T bar to support the bass. It's handy if you're doubling and doing fast change overs. I would prefer it if I could adjust the height a bit more, but that's not a big deal and it may well have changed since I bought mine a few years ago. There's a few other brands doing a similar design such as K&M and it certainly beats leaning your bass against a chair!
  4. What a beauty! Dream bass for someone.

    RESOLVED: Shipping a bass to Germany

    That's great service from Thomann and certainly the right way to approach it in terms of cost and keeping both parties happy.

    Eastman bass review

    Thanks for the share Pete. I really want to try the hybrid model to compare the two...I've played several hybrids that I loved, often more than the fully carved equivalent, so it would be really interesting to try them. They also have a more expensive carved bass and I would love to know if it's better than the VB200. When I was in the US I tried a New Standard Cleveland Hybrid that I really wish I had bought! It had a great tone for jazz and I think hybrid instruments are really cool. There was a recent interview with Larry Grenadier on Contrabass Conversations podcast where he says he is playing an Eastman...I'm trying to find out which model it is...but I wouldn't be surprised if it is the hybrid or VB200. Bassbags.co.uk were great to deal with. I don't have any kind of affiliation with them, I just wanted to review the bass and they were kind enough to lend me it. The set up being good is so refreshing, it was completely ready to play. I've still got the bass and am enjoying practising with it. I might even film a lesson on it today... They do deliveries throughout the country so will be passing by in their van soon..you can't miss it! I think the hard thing with any reviews is that there are so many variables between instruments/strings/players etc.. so I was nervous about sharing it, but the bass did really impress me. I would love to compare it to a few other popular instruments such as the Shen basses, or an EUB and hopefully I will get to do more in future.
