  1. I feel you, and I only have one kid! I wish there was a quick and easy solution, but I don't think there is. I found an originals band with a bunch of great guys and that keeps me motivated. Covid has definitely taken its toll on my motivation, due to my job I have been busier than ever when everyone else has had extra time on their hands. I have just booked a Skype lesson, with a world class player and even just prepping for the lesson has kick started some inspiration. But on the other hand covid has made me want to go down to 1 bass and 1 guitar rather than wanting new gear...
  2. Both of these amps have distinctive sounds, and neither are used by a huge amount of rock guys. For what you have said, I would maybe look at ampeg pf800, dark glass m900, or mesa d800. Or my initial suggestion of going the Helix route.
  3. I have an off the wall suggestion for you. Get a Helix LT or hx stomp and an FRFR powered cab. This is give you a huge amount of options with high quality amp sims. Admittedly the learning curve can be quite steep at first to get the best out of it, but it's definitely worth it.
  4. The band being rusty and not as tight is definitely normal and nothing to worry about. As the rehearsals continue you will soon find your groove again. (pun intended) This happens with the best of bands.
  5. I feel this is also true, I wouldn't classify my feelings as depression, but if I am not playing music as often it is definitely an indication that I'm not feeling great. Ezbass is 100% right if I break the cycle and play I will start feeling better.
  6. I agree with the above comments. A new bass might give you a short bump to play more, but I doubt it will last long. My 2 suggestions to find motivation to play are: Listen to more music, and it may trigger inspiration. Get some lessons with a good teacher that will open your mind to new ideas and approaches.
  7. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy7BCx7q1nS-eFQWxc949ww This is Phil Mann's new page, fairly new but already has a good amount of solid content.
  8. The Nordstrand Blades are incredible and will keep the highs, for sure my favorite pick up. https://nordstrandaudio.com/collections/4-string-precision-bass-pickups/products/power-blade
  9. This is a total bargain! If my custom shop P Bass sells, I will be all over this.
  10. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  11. https://www.royalmail.com/personal/receiving-mail/pay-a-fee That's the website you go to. Hopefully you can get your reference number from the card
  12. I know exactly how you feel. I love my current basses and rig, yet it doesn't stop me looking a new shiny gear that I see on here and you tube basically every day. However I have decided to try and focus my spare time on playing rather than researching. To hold myself to account I have signed up for Skype lessons with Phil Mann. I'm sure that will keep me busy!
  13. You will usually get an email / card / letter from the courier with a reference number for payment. They will have a part of their website where you pay the duties, Vat, and handling fees. Once that has been done you usually book in a delivery slot. They possibly have a back log, and you will receive correspondence in due course.
  14. Sorry you are 100% right, that is what I meant to say, should have read the post first before I posted.
