SE Bass Bash 2017 - with Steve Lawson and Davey Rimmer

Recommended Posts

What's the general format?
Bring your favourite bass, have a chat, maybe plug it in?
Or come along and watch other people?

It's a really easy going format on the day normally...

Come along, bring some of your gear if you want to, chat with other Basschatters if you want to, listen to other people play, try out some new gear if you want to, have a jam in the Jam Room if you want to, etc, etc..

An keen interest in 'all things bass' and a very friendly vibe is the order of the day really. 😊

Nik, when we talked before, you said that it would be cool to get somebody to give a bass lesson. Is that still an idea? I think that would be great.
I can only imagine how hard it will be to find a subject fitting all the needs :-)

Good call, Pawel..

Will ask around to see if anyone's available and willing to do a lesson for us.

It does need a bit of narrowing down though, so perhaps people could suggest some topics that would be really useful to have covered in a bass lesson?

A few years ago, Jake, a.k.a. jakenewmanbass, did a lesson for us at the West Sussex mini-Bash and that was great!

Count me in too! :)

What about asking Paul Geary or Dave Swift to do a lesson (really enjoyed their talk at the show a few years ago)?

Good idea; I'm not sure who has an 'in' with Paul or Dave, but if someone could put in a word, that'd be great?

I know Paul - had lessons with him and he's a friend of mine on Facebook - I'll drop him a PM on there.

Paul Turner is a former customer at BassGear, part owned by Molan - see if he has any leverage.

I've messaged Steve and I'll let you know if anything comes of it. I'm on his Facebook and can see he's a busy man so not a likely thing but you never know!!

That was my thought too. Either a geeky effects chat or a looping masterclass. I know Steve from way back. Happy to drop him a line too!

PS planning to be there too! Edited by TrevorR

How about a cabinet shootout? Brands of 2x10s up against one another etc..?
I'm pretty sure it might've been done before, mind you. :)

How about a talk on In Ear Monitoring by someone in the know? I see quite a few threads on the subject so there might be some interest...?

I'd definitely be up for this. I've been 'umming' and 'arghing' over getting some or not.
