  1. My '79 StingRay. Bought it in 1986 secondhand for £500 and have used it for the majority of gigs I've played ever since.
  2. I have an Aria bass - the Black & Gold 1 - it cost me £230 in 1983 so it was pretty cheap. Cliff Burton used to use the same bass. However it is an Aria Pro, so it doesn't count, I s'pose.
  3. I was thinking it was the 'either love em or hate em' type of mustard at first....
  4. I still have it! Yes, it’s big and chunky but that’s the way I like it. GLWTS
  5. I remember the days when you could buy a brand new Wal for a tenth of that amount.... However, I am old.
  6. I would go to a fishing tackle shop and see what type of boxes they have if I were you. Usually they stock compartmentalised boxes with clear lids, so you should be able to find something.
  7. Yeah, me too. Skinny as ..... Sometimes, during gigs mainly, I yearn for a nice big beer belly to rest my bass upon.
  8. That's a beauty! I have it's fretted brother here at home, even with the same chip on the lower horn. If I had the cash or something to trade I'd be snapping this up toot sweet!
  9. I have a pair of FatBeams on my StingRay 5 - I put them on in January 2009 They still sound a bit too zingy...
  10. I've found you can achieve a similar sound by repeatedly sliding the straw in and out of a half empty large size fizzy beverage paper cup with plastic lid from a fast food chain.
  11. I had a similar issue with DHL once. A bass was sent from the UK to me here in Poland, but I was tracking it pretty much constantly - when it arrived at the DHL depot, I went and picked it up myself. Luckily I did really, as the street name was correct but the house number was totally wrong and didn't even exist.
  12. God knows how much they cost nowadays, but I still have mine which I bought brand new in 1983 for the princely sum of £250...
  13. Using a pair of Beyer Dynamic DT770s, I could hear from 20 Hz to about 15 kHz - I'm 50 years old and haven't really used much ear protection over the course of my bass career.
  14. I read that as a Westone Scrotum II. Judging by your description it was a load of bollocks, to be fair...
  15. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Admittedly the first 2 albums were a little iffy, but the 3rd album "The Uplift Mofo Party Plan" album with the 'original' lineup of Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Hillel Slovak & Jack Irons was quintessential RHCPs - funky, psychedelic mayhem. Then of course Hillel croaked and Jack left and in came John Frusciante. The next album "Mothers Milk" was IMO a bit of a stop-gap and then along came "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" which made them megastars. And then they were crap.
