  1. Flea jazz basses

    Happens a lot around here. Lots of people cream their pants over the latest "must have", buy it & then sell it a few days/weeks/months later to fund their next wet dream purchase.
  2. Later with Joolz last night

    [quote name='pete.young' timestamp='1495884025' post='3307315'] Interesting bass that Sheryl Crow was playing last night, some kind of short-scale Guild. Anybody know what it was? [/quote] I think it was some kind of short-scale Guild.
  3. The 80s were easily my favourite decade.
  4. 70s Progressive Rock & Folk Rock.
  5. A quick question re Musicman...

    [quote name='stingrayPete1977' timestamp='1494965479' post='3300089'] I can't recall seeing any preamp that doesn't use the jack to switch it on and off? [/quote] My Jaydee Supernatural had a mini toggle switch between the volume & tone controls for the active circuit.
  6. Is where you place your compressor now classed as an event?
  7. Pick vs Fingers - Strap length

    I play pretty much an equal amount of plectrum & fingerstyle & have never felt the need to adjust my strap. I found a height that suited me for both & left it at that.
  8. 12 string guitars

    [quote name='Bilbo' timestamp='1494705101' post='3298066'] Yes. There are a couple in the Music Warehouse in Colchester. 200 yards from the office!! [/quote] It is your destiny....
  9. Eurovision 2017

    I usually love watching Eurovision but I just can't be arsed with it this year.
  10. 12 string guitars

    [quote name='Bilbo' timestamp='1494669376' post='3297705'] Think Ralph Towner rather than strummy guitar. [/quote] Towner uses Guilds a lot.
  11. Tell me about Sandberg

    I did a Pearl drums clinic in Switzerland in 2007 where the basses supplied for use were all Sandbergs. I'd never come across them before & I was very impressed.
  12. Astounding Jam.

    [quote name='ahpook' timestamp='1494669809' post='3297712'] That's not jam, it's noodles. [/quote] Not a good combination.
  13. Taking spares to gigs

    There's no way I would ever have used an amp straight out of the box for a gig, same as I never would have left a bass on a stand unattended. Just asking for trouble.
  14. Pros and Cons of MU Membership

    The MU's luddite attitude towards the use of new technology in music in the late 70s & 80s put me off them for life. Narrow minded & backward looking.
