  1. I've tried the SBL trial twice and frankly wasn't impressed. I feel it's best to drift inbetween Talking Bass, Derec Bennet, Luke from Become a Bassist and Bass Buzz. I also waych SBL but only the free stuff. I was sick of getting spammed by SBL for free reign across YT now. Free is good for me for the moment.... regards, Chris
  2. Hi All. I've just got the chance of buying a Levinson Blade 4 string bass very cheaply! I've heard they are really good basses. I dont know exactly which model it is but it's a precision shape with 3 knobs and a switch which tells me it's an active bass. What do you think?

      It very much depends what "cheaply" means; I'd do some research on the particular model.

      Levinson Blades are darned good instruments; I've got a Strat.

      I think I have the contact details for the fella that first imported them...he can play and is very vocal about how good these are.

  3. I really like Bass Buzz, like here the explanation and practical applications for free are really, really awesome.. interesting banana!
  4. Bass Buzz is awesome, his explanation and music offerings for scales as shown here knock SBL into the dust, no money changing hands either..Sorry Scott..
  5. Cheers Spondon, will definitely persevere I think as its an awesome bass, just need to ensure I don't play any other for a bit. Cheers Mate. and others who have commented. Regards, Chris
  6. Thanks Al, got it second hand as new with flats on for £450 SO a real deal. Perhaps will just persevere? Don't really want to let go since its a beauty, if I can just get used to it... ta m8
  7. Know the Ibanez SR500 is a blinder of a bass and is 19mm. Sorta like mine so possibly an option. Like the heavy tone controls on the active system so possibly my way forwards?
  8. Ta Mr Zed, loathed to sell but sure some awesome basses out there.. any recommendations? Ta m8
  9. Hi Guys, For my 50th birthday I got an 'as new' Ibanez SR655NTF in plain ash and I love it, its absolutely amazing and has some incredible grunt with those tasty Norstrands etc..but as someone of medium standard on the bass (promised myself I'd learn bass, coming from upright and tuba!). I am struggling to get on with the 5 plus the 16.5mm spacing. I have played my sons 4 string £50 Stagg (yep I know) and find the 4 so much easier and the string spacing is huge in comparison. I hate myself as I'm finding it hard to commit to the 5 (bought a 5 as I play wind band so flat keys are so much easier, not to be snobby and just buy a 5 than a 4!). Should I ignore the sons easy 4 and just persevere or sell and get a nice 4 like the SR500 or some other awesome 4 string. As its my 50th wanted something REALLY nice for £450.00 which I now have. Could you seek to help my troubled mind...appreciated Chris.
  10. Got mine for £45 plus 10 post a few weeks ago.. awesome and 1/3 of the price for a Mono or Fusion and almost better. Here's my YT review when it arrived:
  11. Just on the train back after the show on Saturday. Thought it was very good but what happened with the 15mins noise then some quiet time as per the email. It seemed to be full of pretentious players in the main just shredding to show off. Cos it was so loud there was absolutely no chance to really 'test' kit properly. Wished there was some time to chat properly. Also the seminar area was in the main area so waste trying to hear some of the presentations, should be relocated or timed to perhaps the quiet hour to alternate seminar then noisy, hour by hour. In the end everyone was turning the volume up to be heard to the point where it was madness.. Think I will stick with the Birmingham Guitar show. Same in all size and sense but less travel, ie. to London. What did others think? Chris
  12. Talking Bass Mark Smith swears by them if you look at some if his videos..
