  1. We have Are You Ready in our setlist for the classic rock pubs. They love it. The sex on fire brigade just look blank.
  2. Ah well, if you'd said the live dvd..... 🤔
  3. Stanley clarke has a bigsby on one if his alembics
  4. Jimmy Johnson has exclusively played 5 string Alembics since the mid 70's.
  5. I disagree. It was the perfect bass for his crocket and tubbs 'big money' video.
  6. I play my fretless 5 string alembic in my blues trio. Couldn't give a stuff what anyone thinks.
  7. Both Phil Lesh and Jack Cassidy played big semi-acoustic basses with f holes early in their careers and I think it's safe to say they played some of the most exciting basslines you could have heard back then.
  8. Steve Bailey gets my respect simply for having the audacity to play an unlined 6 string fretless.
  9. Oh God, not the highland bagpipe please!! Give me Kathryn Tickell on the Northumbrian pipes any day. In fact just give me Kathryn Tickell and I'll be happy.
  10. I still have my first dolmetsch descant recorder from primary school and play it regularly. I'll be 59 this summer.
  11. Mozart's clarinet concerto. Nice and bouncy.
  12. I can't imagine Ron Carter or Charlie Mingus or Paul Chambers discussing the minutiae of string spacing so you're likely in good company.
  13. I love your solution for the kent armstrong. I've still not got round to fitting mine over a year after receiving it. Looking at your first photo, the pole pieces don't seem to be directly under the B and G strings. Does that affect the amplified sound or is it a trick of the lens? (I also have a five BTW) Graeme
