  1. Would your paid teacher come banging on your door 6 times a day when you didn't invite him round?
  2. Thanks. I was thinking along the same lines. I have indeed just ordered a blender pedal, so I'll experiment a bit more when it arrives. 😁
  3. No more so than any other single cut "Foldera" style bass, where for some inexplicable reason they feel the need to build the top half of the body half way along the fretboard. They're all as ugly as sin. Beauty is of course, in the eye of the beholder so opinions vary. I personally find Fender P basses extremely ugly, whereas many other drool over them.
  4. So, did he ever come up with any rock / metal content in the academy? The other reason Scott's lessons do nothing for me is because it all seems to be built around jazz noodling. Great if that's what floats your boat, but to me it's about as musically inspiring as listening to roadworks.
  5. Even the video explaining why he waffles is half an hour of waffle. 😂 Thanks for posting. I'd not seen that before, and fair play to Scott for taking the time to respond.
  6. Thanks. I think maybe the component I'm missing is being able to run a dry signal to the amp. Might be time to invest in a blender pedal.
  7. Yup. No lack of thump from mine at any volume, and it's loud enough to wake the Kracken.
  8. Totally agree, and I much prefer Marks straight down to business approach as well, with no needless filler and waffle. I'm not saying Scott isn't a great musician, or a great teacher. He's just not my cup of tea. You can't please everyone.
  9. Does anyone use guitar effects on bass, or does it just always sound cr#p? I've got a Line 6 M13, which I absolutely love from a usability perspective. I've tried using it on the bass for several things but I'm always underwhelmed with the result. A couple of the reverbs are OK, and the tuner works, but other than that it doesn't get much use. I'm more than happy to admit it may just be me not setting things up properly as I don't have a lot of experience when it comes to effects. Has anyone else had any decent results with one of these or similar? Or would I be better off just chopping it in for a dedicated bass multi effects?
  10. I don't think it was custom. Not ordered my me anyway. I bought it new from Electro Music in Doncaster (now sadly no more) around about 2006 if I remember correctly. Although I've never seen another one since and I've looked several times. Sadly had to sell it when I was hard up for cash a couple of years later.
  11. I used to have a Warwick Thumb double buck in the same colour. It was a beauty. If I had £850 going spare I'd take your arm off. Sadly, as I'm sure it's the case with most people. Money is tight at the minute.
  12. Sounds perfect. I'm much more interested in the contents of those than the content of Scott's videos.
