  1. Or maybe it rises up the Cutlass in terms of priority since the re-sale value only tends to go up 😏
  2. The first time I heard Rage Against the Machine's debut album I was blown away by how good the bass sounded. So agressive, in your face and punchy. "Take The Power Back" is an amazing example of that... And then the distortion tones, oh god. "Know Your Enemy" that last part is insane and obviously also "Killing In The Name" when everything kicks in. Tool is another band that really blew me away with the bass tone. "The Pot" in particular - think it was the first song I heard by them - is incredible. That verse tone still leaves a smile on my face everytime. The bass tone on "Suck My Kiss" by RHCP also is incredible - it's so punchy!
  3. Damn that's insane. And how does it play? Is the neck good?
  4. Wow, that's amazing! Beautiful bass... I wanna do that as well. Where did you get the body/neck?
  5. As I always say: people don't know how to use Stingrays and then get surprised they "sound bad". Seriously, everytime I listen to a demo like this, the bloke who plays it has to go and boost the EQ all the way up (creating that sizzly, mid-scoop tone that NO ONE uses) and call it a day. I don't see him boosting the EQ all the way up on the other basses, why did he have to do it on the Stingray? Anyhow, rant over, for this type of 50s/Motown music obviously the Fenders will sound amazing because that's what our ears are used to. Instant Jamerson vibes as soon as he started playing. Maybe a more neutral genre would have made more sense. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Me too man! Love it as well. I think there's some really great pop songs being made right now and especially in the last 3-4 years. Artists like Bruno Mars, Charlie Puth, Dua Lipa, etc have all come up with huge hits with amazing basslines. Great time to be a bass player.
  7. So Dua Lipa strikes back with another great bassline...she seems to be pursuing a "modern vintage" style. Her new singles sound a lot like modern 70s/80s songs, which is GREAT! She already had a great bassline in "Don't Start Now" but her new single "Break My Heart" is even better in my opinion. I covered the song and damn, it goes HARD! Very funky.
  8. It's free in a Winrar way 😁

    Your Go To Bass

    My go-to and only bass at the moment (decided to get rid of all the others) is an '04 Musicman Stingray that I bought used for 800€ - it was virtually new, the old owner barely used it in all these years. Sounds thunderous, funky and precise with great clarity. It's a bit of a beast (~10lb) but it makes up for it in its gorgeous looks and tone. Looks hella great on stage as well if I may say so. 😅
  10. We must include a new rule in NBD! It should be obligatory to post a video of you playing that beast 😁
  11. From that picture it looks like a toy...the design is so weird. But hey, to each his own!
  12. Not sure where I'd post this but since this is huge news for us musicians I figured I'd create a topic. According to the source below, the UK government will require a "Tier 5 visa in order to perform in the U.K., take part in competitions or auditions, participate in promotional activities, attend workshops, give talks about their work, and take part in cultural events or festivals." Obviously if that happens I doubt the EU will let it go scot-free and will probably enforce the same laws on UK citizens (which means any UK musicians will need a VISA to tour Europe...) What's your take on this? SOURCE: https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-touring-artists-will-need-visas-to-perform-in-the-uk-from-2021
  13. Exactly. The trade deal will be of utmost importance. If the UK somehow manages to screw up a good trade deal (aka they leave the EU single market) then forget Thomann since every package will have to go through customs everytime. Wouldn't surprise me if that happens but I'm hoping for the best!
  14. Dingwall pick-ups are also split-coil pickups like the P-Bass ones...the Combustion is basically a double P hidden underneath those bars.
