  1. I sandwich them between off cuts of ply with the lower being cut to shape to act as the master. Then rout with a bevel bit. You need to be careful to set the depth of the bit obviously but otherwise it’s pretty much foolproof.

    Bass soul food

    How does it compare? I looked at it but went for the hot wax to sit alongside the soul food in the end.
  3. That’s........ errrr......... interesting...........
  4. I love mine which is a cheap unknown one wonderfully named ‘rusty axe’ on the headstock in *best quality paint by the maker or retailer. I have never gigged it but what it’s fantastic for is that instant ability to just do something. So if I need to fix something in my head or try something out it’s ideal. I would gig it but it doesn’t fit with the sort of stuff we do.
  5. Batteries, spare cables and an ability to fix almost anything on the fly. and I play a bit of bass too
  6. I have never spent close to £3k on a bass, but my two go to ones were both bought blind (although with a knowledge of their features that indicated strongly they would suit me), I have bought a few after playing them briefly and liking them only to find that a while down the line they sit gathering dust for whatever reason and I move them on. I think you need to live with a bass for a while to truly know if it’s for you and even the best shop is very unlikely to lend you a £3k bass for six months to see if it’s ‘the one’.
  7. Mine is on my board and I have never had any interference issues.
  8. Genuinely not mine, but a mate had a load of hassle with a bandmate who was married with two young kids but who would insist on copping off with any woman he could after a gig but expecting the other bandmates to cover for him. It all came to head when he decided to do it mid gig last year and they were late starting the second set as he was at it in the back of his van in the car park and they had to go and bang on the outside to get him. The shame is that he is a fantastic musician but a pretty terrible human being.
  9. It’s also easy to forget that far from accepting a tax regime and working within its boundaries, companies such as Amazon and the Pharmaceutical companies (such as the one I Sadly one worked for ) actively lobby to ensure that the tax regime remains beneficial to them and work very hard to ensure anyone who would change it to their detriment does not get into power. I can’t see many market traders on a Saturday pulling that off......
  10. Also VERY interested but would need a couple of dimensions to confirm. PM me if above members don’t take it. Thanks.
  11. Another vote for Bananas, it has become a bit of an in joke in the band but I never get cramp unlike rehearsals if I am banana free.
  12. Jazz every time for me, the Precision neck is like a Cricket bat.
  13. The same amazon customer service refused to refund on a piece of equipment bought for a charity for disabled kids I support. It was returned to the vendor with proof or delivery and they just ignored repeated requests to intervene and refund. The local trading standards told us they were too big to take on. We ended up £150 down, money that had been raised by the kids making stuff, doing bag packs and collecting pennies. They are, and always will be scumbags imho, and that’s before the issues regarding tax/ workers rights etc etc etc.
  14. I have a Digitech drop and it is very very good but not perfect. I mainly use it for practice where the original is in a different tuning to how we play it but occasionally use it at rehearsals and have used it live for the drop D on another brick in the wall. The only time I find it struggles is when you play a run across the strings from low to high, it goes a bit warbly on the higher strings in a way it doesn’t if just stay in that area. Nothing major but I notice it. I have never used it for more than a tone down but it will go a full octave.
