Total Watts

  1. I'd take a '60s Classic Vibe P Bass and some cash
  2. or whatever it was I decided to call it (the black one was definitely AGBM-1) Swamp Ash body, Maple neck, flamed Sycamore fingerboard. Musicman Bongo pickup, John East preamp. Weight - about 7lbs gigged regularly since I built it, the thin lacquer finish has a little bit of wear and one or two marks, but is otherwise fine Price - always difficult to price something like this, but I would like a fair amount, so I'm asking £500
  3. sorry - if I needed a rig I'd keep what I've got, I'm selling because I'm off to play acoustic guitar instead - when I come back to playing bass I'll buy another Markbass setup
  4. last gig done - amp did its job superbly as always - now ready to go to a new home
  5. 1: I made it. 2: The Bongo pickup. 3: The John East preamp.
  6. I spent a quiet day one Xmas messing around with bits of foam, etc. and my preference was for a bit of rolled up kitchen towel (can't remember which brand, but probably Tesco's own )
  7. . . . until I realise that I do have a use for it (or the amp ends up on ebay), I'll throw in my Auralex Gramma Pad, at no extra cost!
  8. nearly time for sale ! (not that anyone seems that interested ) it's a fantastic sounding amp though - is it too big ?
  9. Just to be clear, this isn't playing between songs, it's more over-embellishing everything. We play mostly originals in a style somewhere between ska and reggae, and there are little off-beat snare hits and fills, and cymbals, and all sorts, all over the place - sometimes the singer will call for us to quieten down, which he does with no problem, but still puts in little bits all over it. There's nothing necessarily "wrong" in what he's doing, it just annoys me We've had drummers who are more restrained, and it leaves space for the rest of the band to work in, and more of a groove (IMHO)
  10. I've played drums in bands, and been guilty of hitting things hard myself and I'd be happy to spend time sorting things out, but if the band leader thinks there's nothing wrong then I'm not going to start "having words" with the drummer, I'd rather move on.
  11. this is not at rehearsal, this is all through the gig . .
