  1. Like bouncing a satsuma on a cheap plastic racquet out of a cheap 'Tennis Set' from Woolworths . In other words - not plugged in at the moment.
  2. I'd say they feel very solid and seem decent quality for the price point, if a little uninspiring... I bought a lefty Jive bass with the Babicz bridge for my lefty son. One day he'll forget about it, and I could end up with 'borrowing' the bridge and lefty neck to put on a righty P body, for me! That would be so cool...
  3. So Babicz isn't babic-zee? 🀦
  4. Those, and trying to play along with certain records that were out of tune for one reason or another. Yes, I'm looking at you, UB40 - Signing Off...
  5. Aye. According to Carol Kaye, soon as the Fender bass came out in the 1950s, pros were shimming the neck pocket to taste. πŸ‘
  6. I would pretend to be somebody else, probably from Poland.
  7. Oh gawd, it's another Blank... πŸ˜„
  8. Welcome! πŸ™‚___ πŸ‘
  9. I've been getting it for the last 4 or 5 years. Bought the compression gloves and I like playing in them but they're made from nylon stuff, so not very warm. Silk gloves feel nice, but I don't think they'd take too much wear from playing and they're also not very warm. As said above, once fingers are cold they take a lot of warming up. Perhaps keeping the heat in the core / head would help too ... In a cold room, perhaps comp' gloves with fingerless knitted gloves over the top? I may give that a try. πŸ‘
  10. Thanks. I'll tell her she was lucky, this time...
  11. Question: My Mrs was recently a bit cheeky to me. Now, as I'm Welsh, technically, I need to know if that was actually a hate crime? Because if yes, I probably need to call the police or something. That's exactly what happened to be fair. πŸ‘
  12. No. It's Gary Tibbs outta Adam And The Ants, and Roxy Music. πŸ‘
  13. A bit off-topic I know πŸ€’, but I remember the Aria TSB ads featuring Gary Tibbs: That was around the time that my bass teacher bought an SB1000... which was nice.
  14. No mate, co-written by Freddie Washington (on a P bass!). I know I've posted this clip before:
  15. Have you got access to the individual tracks, to play around with mixing it yourself? πŸ™‚
  16. Sadly not a scene that I was ever part of. Growing up in Backward Buttf*ck, Gloucestershire. The only game in town was hanging out in Woolworths...
  17. Interesting. I thought MK lived on the IOW, and he and the rest of the band were learning their trade on the holiday camp circuit over there, before they made it to the big time. So I suppose MK worked in Macari's before all that...?
  18. Thanks to the mods and happy holidays!
  19. There's a couple of fairly reliable blokes I use. I could have a word if you like... oh, whoops, please ignore.
