LONDON BASS GUITAR SHOW 2016

Recommended Posts

I use it as an excuse to meet up with other BCers, check out the masterclasses and seminars while having a look at what's available. I think the most expensive thing I've ever bought at one of these is lunch.

Just a great day out with like minded people really. Edited by TheGreek

A lot of it is walking around checking out the gear, but there are also masterclasses and performances to watch,

Some people do bring their own basses, but I think that's really only worth it if you want to check out amps/pedals etc with your specific kit.

Aw thanks! :)
I'm at the show every year, wearing my lanyard with my name, so anyone who spots me walking around and would like to say hi, absolutely feel free to do it! If you don't mind being photographed you may even end up in That Blog. :D Edited by bluejay

think I'll tag along cheers! Another stupid question, do people usually bring their own basses?

I took mine last year as I wanted to check out some Vanderkley gear with my own bass...

Unfortunately this was a mistake as I then had a gigbag on the journey down to Olympia. Everyone could see I was going to the bass show and therefore felt the need to fire up a conversation with me on the tube about it. :mellow:

I guess for ordinary people this wouldn't be a problem, but as I hate interacting with other people and generally pretend I don't speak English when approached on public transport, it put a downer on the whole day... :mellow: Edited by CamdenRob

oh i'm fine with band members, it's just the public I try to avoid...

Anyway enough of the de-rail...

My only advice for those attending next year is don't have a Sunday Roast at the pub around the corner... I nearly broke a tooth on an unbelievably hard parsnip last year :mellow:
