  1. In order of importance: For my amp, great sound, flexibility and portability. For my bass, great sound, playabilty/comfort, flexability, looks great.
  2. Do you get nervous??

    I think I would be more nervous if i didn't feel nervous... if that makes sence I think I suffer more from nervous energy than any kind of anxiousness, and that energy and adrenaline spike is one of the things I love about giging. I think I play better with that little edge.
  3. "How do you people sleep at night?"

    A good nightcap or three normally does the trick for me...
  4. Hmmm, tricky question this one and I think everyone's situation and criteria is going to be different. Things have changed a lot for me in the last year or so after running my own Locksmiths business for more than 10 years, I officially packed that in last year to work with my Wife (she is a piano/singing teacher) and now I am teaching guitar/bass/Ukelel and music theory for over 30 private students a week. I'm playing in three bands and gigging weekly, sometimes more and i have my first bit of paid session/recording work in 25 years coming up at the end of April. I would say these days teaching/gigging etc is probably 95% of my income ( I still do the odd Locksmiths job if it comes up and I have the time) all nicely squared of with the tax man. If I would class myself as Pro or Semi Pro is hard to say it depends on the criteria you use for those terms, am I a Professional Educator or teacher, a pro musician, a semi pro bassist, a Jack of all trades lol It really all depends how you look at it.

  9. setting EQ

    So many times... and recently acquiring a bass with coil taps and a 3 band EQ does not help.
  10. Nick Fyffe and not digging in!

    It depends on what your playing, but I like to think I sit somewhere in the middle, so I can dig in or play lighter as appropriate, that's how dynamics work.

  12. Bass heaven, bass hell

    Bass heaven= Finding a bass that looks great, sounds great, and feels great to play... Bass hell= dropping it
  13. NBD Corvette $$ Ltd

    Less than 24hrs after spotting this in the for sale section of the forum, I had this little baby hanging on the wall in my studio and a massive smile on my face. I have to say a big thanks to @Kev for being the easiest guy in he world to deal with, a quick drive about a third of the way across the country and a late night meet up at a very dark motorway services I was on my way home with my new toy. I have been playing Warwicks pretty much exclusively for the last 20 years and had a $$ for a few months last year but I thought it lacked a bit of individuality and a little something tone wise, but a very nice, very versatile bass, but it got moved on in the end. This thing however is a totally different beast. Firstly the tiger wood top and swamp ash body look beautiful. This bass is No30 of a limited run of 85 made in 2010 and within that 85 only a small No. were made with this specific hardware. Instead on the standard two MEC humbuckers it has two Bartolini humbuckers and a 3 band MEC preamp as opposed to the normal 2 band found on a $$. This combination makes this thing sing, being able to push the mids really brings it alive compared to my experience with the standard $$. Suffice to say I am very very happy with it and will stop gushing and show you some pics. @Kev I dont know what you were thinking parting with this, but thanks again for making it so easy... and you cant have it back
  14. Kev's Feedback

    Just bought a beautiful Warwick $$ from Kev, and it could not have been easier. A cold dark meetup at the motorway services was an absolute pleasure
  15. Damn... I wish I had a grand spare... lovely bass mate GLWTS
