  1. Hi all, sorry i have been soooo bizzy, i will give kev a bell this weekend to see if we can fix a date for this year. pref when its a bit warmer and people wont get snowed in.
  2. Bass player wanted for Fusion jazzy stuff Warrington. Its all original stuff so the world is your oyster ! If interested let me know and i will pass on your number and give you a contact number.
  3. Some mods that might help, given the pickups are ok....worth a try maybe. on some wiring the earth runs through the pot to the actual plate, so the control plate is the earth run to the jack socket, anything to save a bit of wire !, you could try to tighten all the pot screws and jack socket screw ? If you feel like a bit of a project then here are two mods that made mine much more reliable for over 20 odd years with no problems, ever. It also sorts out that crackly sound jazz's get when the jack socket gets a baggy ring, owww errrrr misses 🙂 1, put a stereo jack socket in, this then will have a pin you can solder to that has a prong contact on to the sleeve of you input jack, as well as the ring of the socket. 2, Run a solid piece of twin and earth copper wire over the top of all the pots right to the lug of the jack socket, then solder to top of pots and jack socket, with a bit of wire sleeving on it between the pots. then solder a link to the other earth lug on the jack socket, ( or just bend the end of the long one and do it in one) This is the Hogie 1, Mod simple, tidy, solid, reliable. 100% good sig. ( image is only to show the earth mod)

  6. It always amazes me that a back line of a band learn every note and are usually solid but for the most brass players who are reading always manage to [email protected] up and play without commitment to notes and they are reading ! i think im going to adopt Mr Toscanini work practice and get my whip out 🙂

  9. I am interested to see how many musicians think music is getting worse, cant just be me. i will be honest i don't know what is in the charts right now, i think as we get older we choose a direction and tend to explore that to the point of it getting so involved everything goes by the way side, i am very guilty of this, on saying this i do believe music is getting worse. here is a vid, i wonder how many people agree with this, and the big question for those that agree is there a way back ? i realise this topic is going to open a few cans, so i am going to try add a poll to see if you agree with the vid or not. Be interesting to see the outcome. The TRUTH Why Modern Music Is Awful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVME_l4IwII
  10. Some tracks we use to do in the funk band i was in, nice grooves . you dont hear much of black nasty but well worth the hunt.
  11. There is going to be arguments for and against this topic, i think its sad that you are not even allowed to even talk about a chord in a song with out some sort of copyright infringement, on saying that we can argue that yes you can talk about it you just can not make money talking about it, so once your video on you tube starts to make money for say a million views then that money would be taken away from you because of copyright infringement, i am wondering how deep that rabbit hole can go ? for example at your next bass bash if you paid for a famous bass player to come and chat about playing bass, if he talks about other bass lines other than his own then going on the above would he have to give his cash to universal music group ? going on this maybe he would, . i have a feeling its about to get worse, i have a vid on youtube showing how to connect two digi mixers, not in the manuals, never been done before, it took allot of working out, if my vid gets enough views to make money, (not that i did it for that) could that then be taken away as i am using a branded product to make that vid ? i think so, it would be never ending, sad really, just another way to stifle creativity, your thoughts ?
  12. GOD DAM :-) .... perfect, how about a modern version thats powered, im off for a scoot about now, cheers
  13. Not bass gear...unless you use a wedge as a monitor, but a great idea anyway, how about stage monitor wedges, that when you clip two together they make a box to stop them falling all over the place in the van and to save space, you could even make them stackable and get 4 of them in a nice neat box, it cant be hard can it ? would surly sell like jaffa cakes.
