  1. Originally it was Richie Blackmore. I saw Rainbow at Wembley Arena when I was around 16 years old and it just blew me away. Later it was Bruce Foxton as he first made me realise that playing the bass was even cooler than playing the guitar. He had so much energy in his sound but still carried the rhythm perfectly - all while singing backing vocals! I just wanted my bass to sound like his.
  2. No 1 is closest for me but not so loud these days....
  3. Been using a Soundcraft Ui16 recently with a very similar band setup. I found I needed to roll off above 5kHz drastically and reduce both high mids and below 100Hz in order to get the FOH to sound like the bass amp. This was DI from a TC450. Ymmv....
  4. I'll second (or third!) that it could be worth loosening the neck bolts and shifting the neck. Worked a treat on my MIJ precision.
  5. I was involved in a fair bit of 'world music' in the 90's but I've never seen one of those!
  6. Maybe you could try some threadlock (or even clear nail varnish) on the saddle adjustment screws?
  7. You're not alone! The gitwrist in my band (a leftie) has a few fenders but nine times out of ten he picks up his old Squier Affinity Tele. The rest of us think it sounds better too but that could just be cos he plays it better....
  8. Watching it now......takes me back to my older brother's record collection 😀
  9. Some suggestions of places you could have a look: https://cpc.farnell.com/ or https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/passive-components/
  10. I like Jim Dunlop purple ones, 2 or 3 mm. They have a dimple in the middle that makes it easier for me to keep hold of them. I think they're called 'Big Stubby'.
  11. Best of luck, hope you enjoy it. Family and friends are often the most nerve-wracking crowd!
  12. I use an old electric scroll saw that I got from a mate. Works a treat. I finish the edges with sandpaper on a cork block.
