    In general the north of Devon and Cornwall is less populated than the south so gigs will be fewer and further in between. The further west you go in Cornwall the less it matters as the north and south coasts are so close. 

    Plymouth, Truro, Exeter, etc are busy-ish as gigs go. We've found that the smaller more rural areas appreciate live music much more and even though the audience might be smaller than in the bigger towns and cities, they tend to be there for the music rather than just out on the lash and there happens to be a band on. 

    Neither of our bands are just standard pub rock and we've been doing alright, the Mod/Northern Soul/Ska band more than alright really. 

    There's plenty of smaller festivals as well. 

    You will definitely need a big car and a willingness to travel though. 

    whereabouts are you ?


  2. I still have my Framus Star bass, given to me by my double bass playing Dad in September 1963 for my 13th birthday. It was secondhand when he bought it. Taught myself to play, and played in a few groups in the 60's. Still sounds nice, although the varnish is cracking a bit on the back of the neck.

    Wooo... you´re a man of courage! So... how does it balance know?

    I would have done it differently. I might have drilled the holes from the backside but stoped before  they pass to the frontside.

     

    the back has some routing out as well. It balances quite well, 'cos i now put the strap on the bolt on the front instead of the normal place

    Weird. Yesterday I had a brief daydream (for no reason), about a bunch of holes drilled in a bass -- and there it is! 😬

    just trying to help
