    encapsulates exactly what tasteful bass playing is

    Be careful

    fair enough caveat emptor or something!

    Your Worst Gig Ever

    we've played a few biker nights at the clubhouses (and I'm talking 1%'er clubs). Everyone is over 50 and injured! They don't/can't jump around but they appreciate the music and they pay well and our vans are always secure in the compound!

    Taking care of Cables

    yep correctly coiling upwards of 30 cables (PA and backline, mics ecs, lights etc) is a non starter at 1am. I know im going to get shot here but but I put mine togeather by grabbing both ends, halving the length, halving again and then tying a very loose knot in the middle, that way they don't get all tangled up in a box of leads, can be extracted easily and if good quality last for years. Weirdly the guitarist who only "correctly" coils 2 of his precious leads is constantly breaking them, then nicks mine!

    perhaps time to try out a full fat valve amp just for once to say been there, done that??

    Win A Free Set of NYXL!

    Currently using some DR Lowriders, great but starting to go a little flat, heard the NYXL strings last a whole lot longer? We shall see!

    Your Worst Gig Ever

    Played a really weird bar in Teignmouth, actually the basement room of a dodgy hotel, the landlady is a real eccentric, used to be a high ranking barrister in London, now a bit of an aggressive p1sshead. Only people who listen to us are her, the barman with no teeth and her "boyfriend", a real chancer who sat with a large albino lizard on his head (really). She got arrested the following week for trying to set a former (disgruntled) employees house on fire, the Hotel is now closed. https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/teignmouth-hotelier-dubbed-female-basil-862735#

    String Cleaners/boiling/coated Strings and General tone

    well I use these at £4.40 a pop, but you may not like the tone, I find them fine for pub gigging, nice and snappy cos they're always new, 10 sets for the price of a set of La bellas? Possibly worth a punt? https://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_valuestrings_bassguitar_medium.htm
