    Palladino discusses THAT bass line

    I bought stuff from there back in the day (including a TE combo which I still have) as it was easy to travel to Wapping from where I worked. I saw Geezer Butler in there once trying out a couple of amps.

    Legacy Trace Elliot combo specs

    I have the 7215SMC, and the manual (which covers your combo as well) is pretty clear, as you say .... it seems crazy that they would put extension sockets on the back of yours - and then tell you not to use them !!

    But why shouldn't kids be good on the bass ...

    My theory is that a kid who starts at 4 yrs old and reaches a high standard by 12 years old, is the same as a guy that starts at 20 and reaches a high standard by 60......... both of them have spent double their starting age in years learning the instrument. I started bass when I was 40.... so 19 years later I am bound to be still rubbish at playing it !! On the other hand I might be talking complete drivel.....
  5. I would like to buy that - I will PM you.
  6. Sold to iamtheelvy.

    Too old for rock and roll

    I am in a band with 2 other guys in their late 50's - I am 59 (the drummer is a bit younger, although he has only been with us about 5 years) We formed the band 18 years ago and named it OGMAN..... at the time, it was an acronym for Old Gits Making A Noise.... That was 18 years ago... !! Should we re-name the band FOGMAN ?? You are never too old !!

    Cheap Sound Module?

    I used a Yamaha TG100 sound module for many years - it is small and neat and you may find one secondhand. That will still require wiring.... a wall wart, a midi cable and a headphone cable - so you are not wires-free..... I imagine that you chose the Hammer 88 because of the weighted keys, which are definitely required for serious piano students, but the lack of on-board sounds is a real downer. Could you consider selling p/x your keyboard for something like a Yamaha P-45 which I think is a very similar action ? Best of luck, whatever you decide.
  11. I started playing bass 20 years ago.... 2 years later I had a custom 5-string made with mahogany body wings, AAA grade quilted maple, ebony fingerboard, mother-of-pearl dots, Bartolini pups with 18v pre-amp, gold hardware.... it is absolutely mint as I played it a couple of times but decided I didn't like 5-strings. It cost me £2500 back in 2000... It's been played maybe 10 times in the last 18 years and it just sits in my room looking nice. I can't find a good reason to sell it.... maybe I will play 5-string one day....
  12. Collection ONLY from Beaconsfield, near Junction 2 of M40 I don't have a gig bag, or a box, so unfortunately no postage or couriers - sorry. 30" scale.... 20 frets.... V-V-T knobs. Hardly used - I bought it last November to try short-scale - but after a while I decided that it's not for me , so I am sticking with my Fender Jaguar 34" scale. The bass is in excellent condition, as you can see...... If you want to try short-scale, this will suit you nicely.
