      It's good that you watched it, you're probably in the minority.

      It will only get worse.

      Try reading "The age of Surveillance Capitalism" by Shoshana Zuboff for a somewhat more heavyweight analysis.

      Or for a shorter read:  https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/29/rightwing-thinktank-conservative-boris-johnson-brexit-atlas-network


  2. Wilkinson M-Series WMJB Jazz Bass-type NECK & BRIDGE Pickups for sale. Proprietary "Vari-gauss" technology with enhanced bottom end. Approx Resistance: 8.40k (Neck), 9.0k (Bridge) 4 String Perfect for a budget friendly project. Will post anywhere for free.
  3. A pair of Jazz Bass pickups for sale, taken out of a J&D Jazz Bass and in perfect working order. Perfect for a budget friendly project. Will post anywhere for free.
  4. I've decided to keep them and see if I can put both of the thicker magnets under the neck pickup, I love a project and this should keep me busy for an afternoon. ** UPDATE ** Well that was a waste of an hour 😂, I took off the thin magnet and put both the thicker magnets on one pickup but it was still all for the E and A 🤷🏻‍♂️. It was worth a try though.
  5. @shoulderpet I contacted JHS and never got a reply. Customer service it would seem is a thing of the past.
  6. Anything by Charles Mingus. I have the `Complete Recordings 1957 - 1960' collection on my iPhone and it's amazing, it has all of these on it; Word from Bird (with Teddy Charles) The Clown Mingus Three (aka Trio) East Coasting A Modern Jazz Symposium of Music and Poetry Mingus Ah Um Wonderland The Weary Blues (with Langston Hughes) Blues & Roots
  7. @dave_bass5 I swapped them back to how I know them to be; neck pickup wires to the neck pot and bridge pickup wires to the bridge pot, I don;t think the original way really affected the sound to be fair but it just didn't look right. I have already taken delivery of a Jazz Bass Loom from @KiOgon and I'm looking forward to a pain free installation over the weekend.
  8. The pictures on that website are incorrect as only the neck pickup has the thicker magnet under the E and A, the bridge pickup has a magnet of equal thickness along it's entire length. I agree that the tone it provides is perfect rock Rock and Punk, but only if you play the E and A strings only 😂 If anyone fancies giving them a try, I will be taking some pics and putting an advert on Basschat very soon. Watch this space.
  9. @A.G.E.N.T.E. You name it, I've tried it, whatever's over the BIG magnet overpowers everything else. I'm selling them if you're interested.
  10. @Muppet It's a brand new bass and that's exactly it was manufactured.
  11. ** UPDATE ** I got an answer back from the seller, it transpires that Wilkinson's new Vari-Guass system boosts the E and A strings only, admittedly they sound fantastic but now the D and G strings sound pathetic. I was told that they had had only good reviews but in my opinion, it renders the bass unplayable....why would you want a bass with 2 strings louder than the other 2 strings? IT MAKES NO SENSE !!! I can't return them as they have been soldered in, if anybody wants to buy them, I'll take £20 and that includes next day delivery to anywhere.
  12. @Muppet I reversed it back to what I know as 'normal' when I installed the new pups.
  13. I hate soldering and was wondering if conductive adhesive glue would work instead when connecting pickup wires to pots 🤔 Does anybody have experience of using this?
