  1. You are right, but at the start of new product lines there are always teething problems. I think we are only talking about one bass. If so, that's not the end of the world. How the issues are managed and resolved that will affect the reputation of these Sadowsky basses, not one bass with a problem.
  2. I don't have anything to do with the Army and I'm absolutely certain we don't need a nuclear deterrent, let along a totally modernised one, but I'm still paying for those. . . . and don't get me started on how much our Politicians are costing us!! IMO the cost of the BBC is insignificant in comparison.
  3. Like it. The "rough edges" compliment the feel of the song.
  4. Yep. I guess my preferred bass sound was "imprinted" way before Music Man came about. The SR5 was a good bass to start my 5 string conversion. It took a few years, but in the end I decided I preferred wider string spacing, single coil pickups and the unrolled fretboard had begun to bug me.
  5. The bass is loud. Maybe too loud for some but it doesn't bother me. I'd try a mix taking the other bass lines out. IMO you don't need them and an emptier sound might be more interesting. Also maybe add a little more low mid to the bass line. Some of the notes drift in the bar but the first beat is always spot on. Did you adjust the timing on the first beat? I like the drums, maybe add some hi-hat.
  6. The only problem with that is, as soon as the advertisers are the driving force, the quality of programs takes a serious dive. I have no problem with the licence or the programs the BBC puts out. Anything that divorces the program makers from commercial considerations is a good thing in my book. Is this non-payment a new thing? I always got paid by the BBC, but that was rather a long time ago.
  7. Apart from a cover for my BB2, all I’ve bought since March is food, paint and sandpaper.
  8. Great Christmas songs. . . . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1-94xkttAo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jid4mF8zrfY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k79LgndsO-I
  9. My first 5 string bass was a Music Man Stingray 5. It was good but not as good as the Lakland that replaced it. These days there are many more choices for good first 5 string basses, like Sire, Squier and Lakland Skylines.
  10. The answer is always, RTFM!!!!
  11. I've seen a lot of enthusiasm for the tone of rosewood slab board Fenders, which is most/all basses made in and up to 1962. Apparently the fretboard is thicker and that makes them sound better.

    I don't use pedals, but I hope this is a good move for the company.
  13. If Warwick can get anywhere close to the business plan they will be producing very high quality basses at a very reasonable price. These have the potential to be very good value for money. . . . . and all you lot can whitter on about is the logo?!? Apparently Warwick sends someone over to the Chinese factory every couple of weeks to keep an eye on production and QC, but since Covid-19 haven't been able to. This might be having a knock on effect in the QC dept. Personally I'd rather not be supporting China's economic world domination, so I'll be sticking with my Japanese Metro.
  14. I'm interested in these replies. I'm looking for new head phones, my existing (cheap Sony) ones are OK, but I think/ know I could do better. Sadly, these days it doesn't take much to exceed the capability of my hearing. So I'm looking for a good match for bad ears.
