    Try standard gauge (760T) white nylon flats by La Bella. Meaty to dig in on, a very nice top end, and low tension too.  Some people find them too floppy, but if it's between that and regular steel core flats there's no contest for me.

    I've got a set of Copper White Nylons on my Yamaha BB right now and I'm liking the smooth feel and the tone. 

     

    Such an expensive experiment are bass strings.

    That quilted Jazz looks nice!

    Believe it's a Spector Coda, so yes it's probably very nice too! 

     

    Considering they didn't have a large number, it was a good variety of basses rather than all Fender/Ibanez stuff. 


  3. Sunny day so took a wander round Glasgow and dipped into Kennys Music and they had this, which I instantly thought was a Warwick but is actually an SX. Very similar to my Tanglewood Bassmaster Funk in ripping off designs 😉

    Had to have a shot and was really impressed! Really flat neck which suits me and the variety of tones I got through the Ampeg combo I was using suited me down to the ground. Well worth the £300 IMO. 

    My Yamaha BB425 might be in danger....

    OK - I'll start off the raffle prizes.  I will contribute this:

    A number of you have already seen it at previous bass bashes and - until the website wiped all of the avatars - this was my avatar since joining Basschat, so it's only fitting ;)

    It's a Squier Jaguar - the original full scale version.  Great to play;  hmmm...Seymour Duncan 'designed' p/ups - not the most exciting but eminently upgradable; passive electrics; stacked volume tone for each pup; D'addario Chromes; one of my early veneering jobs; remodelled scratchplate covered in automotive-go-faster-carbon-fibre matting; natural sides and back:

  5. What a stunner! You've done well there!

    Regarding 4 to 5 transition it can come very quickly - try and get in the habit of playing around the 5th fret rather than using open strings.

    Bet you won't be able to put it down!
