Hi all. Like about 200 others I just jumped ship from TalkBass today. Been peering over the hedge for a long while so thought I should become a fully paid up member. I've been playing bass for about 5 years, before that I played g****r and keys in various go-nowhere bands. Then I migrated to the bass and never looked back. Playing in three bands ATM, a gigging covers band (60s soul, R&B and party-type music), a funk band which I started up just before lockdown (doh!) and a jazz quartet ( to drag me out of my comfort zone). I play Yamaha TRB fretless for jazz, a TRBX 305 for funk and a self build p type bass for a more classic vibe. I play through a Markbass 500 Tube and 2 Vanderkley 112 EXTs and have an always-off dx166 compressor. Looking forward to lots of interesting bass chat!
