  1. Heaps of P-basses out there not made by Fender/Squier and that don't look like Precisions. Like others have said, it's mainly about the pickup type and position, and it should probably be passive to ensure you're hitting your amp in a similar way and not colour the tone too much. Edit: It's also about scale length. Don't expect a 30" scale bass to sound like a Precision, regardless of pickup position.

    Show us your rig!

    Brought the amp home from our rehearsal space for some tweaking, which provided a nice photo op
  3. In the words of Turner Hall: He's the most successful British artist you've never heard of. https://turnerhall.co.uk/2017/09/12/the-most-successful-british-artist-youve-never-heard-of/ https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/aug/24/steven-wilson-the-prog-rocker-topping-the-charts-without-anyone-noticing
  4. Yeah, it's a pretty neat solution. The shelf is called "Ekby Östen" and the legs are called "Capita", if you want the exact same setup. The legs come in various lengths; mine are 8 cm. Edit: Looks like my shelf is discontinued, but they have one called "Ekby Alex" which has a couple of built-in drawers. That might prove even more practical. Alternatively I'm sure there are tons of alternatives to the exact one I used.
  5. Nothing fancy or bass cab-related, but this is my tiny Ikea hack: An Ikea shelf designed for hanging on a wall, and some legs designed for a cabinet. Perfect size and height for my video and studio monitors.
  6. He's playing along to an album and just listening through speakers. I'm guessing he hasn't got it turned up loud enough so he gets out of sync sometimes.
  7. It won't fit. The well-known ones I know will fit are: Cioks Adam, DC5 and DC7 Truetone CS6 Strymon Zuma R300 and Ojai and probably a few lesser-known ones.
  8. It will only draw what it needs; the 500 mA outlet will be fine. Voltage is pushed (so you need to connect it to an outlet with the exact voltage the pedal can handle), while current is drawn (so it will only draw what it needs).
  9. Haven't tried any others, but I'm very happy with Lastpass.
  10. Unless the password manager is a scam from day 1, this shouldn't concern you. Passwords are not stored in the password manager's database in cleartext, so even the people running that company are not able to read your passwords. They are encrypted using your master password as the key, and the master password is also not stored anywhere on their servers. As long as that password is secure enough and not used for any other account anywhere online, noone will ever be able to read your passwords. There's an infinitely much larger problem inherent in not using a password manager, because that invariably leads to reuse of passwords (since most people can't remember unique passwords for each and every account). Sites get hacked every day, and it could be literally years before anyone even finds out that your user data has been compromised. Unlike in Hollywood movies, there's no blinking red light in the company's IT department warning them that they've been hacked. The only way that warning could detect a hack would be if the developer already knew of the vulnerability, and if he knew the vulnerability he would fix it. If your password for one site is out there, and you've used that same password for other accounts, you now have a much bigger problem. Password managers will also generate more secure passwords that are much harder to simply guess. If you use a combination of names or dictionary words in your password, it will have two consequences: 1: It's easier for an automated system to crack it, because it can "simply" run through a dictionary and throw in various numbers and other characters in order to brute-force your password 2: There's a greater chance that someone else out there has used the same password, which means that if their password is revealed somehow, yours might be too. Use a password manager. If you prefer to use an "American" one, then go ahead, but any well-reputed password manager will be a million times safer than any other reasonable approach. If you really distrust cloud storage (which is fair enough), there are offline password managers that will only store your passwords locally on your computer and sync them to local storage on your other devices.
  11. Not really, unless someone manages to insert a script that exploits a vulnerability in your browser or email client. EXTREMELY unlikely unless you're still using a ten year old version of Outlook or something like that. Attachments and links are the main danger.
  12. What's your route? Are you just playing a couple of shows in towns that are close to eachother, or are you travelling across the country? Distances here can get brutal, and roads (especially along the coast) can be windy and narrow. I've talked to a number of international musicians who tour Norway, and they all comment on the same thing: This country is freaking expensive. And they're right, especially for visitors who will have to rely on restaurants and cafes for their sustenance, where we are probably among the highest-priced in the world. Alcohol is also extremely pricey in bars and pubs, so be aware of that before the bill arrives. Taxis are also often a shock to many, especially people from the US, UK, etc. Expect to pay around £10 just for getting into a cab, and £30 for a 15 minute drive.
