  1. Because churning out accurate wood and metal work on a CNC machine, especially in a cheap labour economy, is cheap. Perhaps the question should be "Why does a standard Fender* cost so much?" Probably due to profit margins. * Substitute brand name of your choice.
  2. Thanks for posting this. I'd forgotten how good she was.
  3. My wife used to use these on her sax,and they sounded great, but having had two fail after a couple of years each, has gone back to a mic on a stand solution.
  4. Please, nobody take this thread seriously!
  5. Well after the unexpected seriousness that my last thread attempt descended into her's another one: As the title suggests: Bass player that are actually slightly better (but only slightly better) than their reputation suggests. Bass players who are more than slightly underrated have no place in this thread. On your marks, get ready, and off you go.........
  6. Yes you guessed it: Bass players that are pretty good, and almost, but not quite, as good as people say.
  7. Not a vast range of experience of different amps (at least not owned by me), but so far 'Traditional' solid state (well class H): undoubtedly the Marshall DBS400. Light weight solid state. Markbass LM3.
  8. I reckon you'd best to play it like a hammered dulcimer.
  9. I iamgine that so that the low strings sound a bit more bassy and the higher strings have a bit more "Zing".
  10. Hard to tell what the letters are - It can be read many ways, but (to my eyes) it's not a single 'W'.
  11. It's still less than it takes to wrap a body though ..........
  12. Me too!. The DBS 400 is brilliant, but flip me it's heavy.

  14. Might it be to do with tension/load on the bridge?, or possibly they vibrate more, hence more volume?
