  2. Oh how I love the Performer basses. Given the cash I'd have a replica luthier-built, but with sensible string spacing (IIRC the originals are 16.5/17 at the bridge?).
  3. Rush - Exit Stage Left Judie Tzuke - Road Noise Frost* - Rockfield Files (studio 'live' recordings) Marillion - The Thieving Magpie Snarky Puppy - Live at the O2 Academy Bristol 05-10-2015
  4. Who's he gone with, out of interest? Yes. I know.
  5. I'll let you know on Thursday I haven't tried it yet, tomorrow night's rehearsal is its baptism of fire. It's certainly a lovely wee thing, very solidly made. Almost feels like it's machined from a block of alloy. It appeals to the engineering-nerd in me
  6. Latest (and last, for now) upgrade to my wee board. Just picked up the tiny Swiff tuner from @jrixn1 this afternoon, so my trusty old Korg DT-7 is now retired. I might do some cable-tidying work at some point, but for now it will do fine. Yes, I know the Zoom has a tuner in it, but I prefer a separate one.
  7. I love sunburst. I'd keep it as it is, it looks great alongside the P. If I was doing a re-fin, personally I'd go candy apple red with matching headstock.
  8. Horace Panter made me pick up a bass. Mark King showed me how I wanted to play it.
  9. My first cold for 2 years. Bleugghh.

      As I get older, I get fewer and fewer colds, and they get worse and worse.  Get well soon!

      Now the kids are back at school we're getting the lurgies: youngest (not at school) has chickenpox, and youngest daughter who started in Reception last week is off with a bad cold.

  10. Boss say: "The CE-5 Chorus Ensemble is BOSS' ultimate compact chorus pedal, covering a wide frequency range and featuring high- and low-cut filters. This lets users create any kind of chorus effect—from a mild, natural chorus to the clear and penetrating stereo chorus effect popular in contemporary music." I say: a very nice chorus pedal, works well with bass, but now surplus to requirements as all my FX needs are dealt with by my MS-60B these days. The serial number dates it to December 1995. One of the switch plate/battery cover screws has sheared off, but new ones are in the post and will be fitted prior to shipping. £45 posted, or 40 if collected from my gaff. I will bring it along to the SW Bass Bash next Sunday too if it hasn't sold by then.
  11. We've moved on from god, we're onto thespians now
  12. Nice interview with David Crosby here. To my shame I've reached my age without ever bothering to familiarise myself with their music. Where's the best place to start? Is there a decent best-of?
  13. Open Your Window - Reverend and the Makers
  14. 139 & 140 are going to go for some fairly serious wedge I reckon.
  15. This was my first thought too. It happened on one of my basses too if I started digging in too hard. Put a strip of black insulating tape along the top of the neck pickup, to cover up the polepieces. Won't affect the sound but it will help, if that's where the popping is coming from.
  16. There have been two basses I've played that I've desperately wanted -- a} Kiwi's old Smith BSR5 (oh my god, the sound it made through my Eden amp was properly gusset-dampening), and b} this incredible instrument at Jon Shuker's workshop. This is probably the best sounding 5 string bass I have ever played, it was just perfect. Luckily for me, these two instruments were a} not for sale and b} out of my price range.
  17. Unfortunately outdoor gigs in this country (especially on a seafront!) are always going to be a complete lottery due to our wonderful weather. I feel for you, especially after all the excitement of the buildup. Hope you can get it rescheduled asap.
  18. For my money, that accolade goes to the first of the Brian Bromberg basses, the Peavey B Quad 4. That thing was properly bonkers compared to everything that was around at the time. I'd love one.
  19. @paul_5 @andruca do you find yours are noisy in use?
