After going to the LBGS 2019 , i managed to get my 1st set of pro macus miller strings ,, stainless steel ,, more expensive than alloy , MM pro strings stainless steel less than half price
i have mainly used rotosound ,, so checking these strings out was exciting ,, rotosound give you a direct sound ,, what ever you hit , you get ,, i still say a great string ,, you get a 1 to 1 ratio ,, flat steel
so when i got the MM DRs i was not used to the extra dynamic ,, almost like a phantom mic sound / 1st time using a condenser mic ?? , you get a much richer sound from the strings changing the harmony of the bass ,,
means i am taking longer learning bass jams because the strings lend your ear to extend the harmony in a different richer way ,, where with rotosound being a flat 1 to 1 ratio the harmony stops earlier ,,
MM DRs strings makes my bass sound more dangerous than it already is
,,,, but in other bench mark tests ,,, unless i wait until the strings get older ,, do not have that flatter street funk one note sound ,,
we need Marcus Miller Funk Monster strings ; D ,,
eg Marcus Miller Street Jam Strings ,, all the dynamics of MM DRs ,, with just a touch of that One Note rotosound flat steel know how ??
Getting back into playing bass after 20 years, I picked up a friends a couple of weeks ago and jamming with them has rekindled my love of playing music.
I need to pick up a bass guitar as I'm using my friends at the moment.
Looking forward to chatting with anyone who wants to & learning to play again.

The cake here, soundcloudDOTcom/derelics/sets/illusions-of-control/s-z8ocX (replace the Doy by uh, a dot)(the bass sound on the tracks is open to change as long as it fits the arrangement, you won’t have to play exactly this)

For sale is my Thunderfunk TFB-750A head, a fabulous amp with bags of tone, hand made in the US with high grade components. Incredibly flexible semiparametric EQ, preamp switchable between solid state / valve, and a huge amount of power, running right down to a 2 ohm load. In excellent condition, as you can see from the pics. It’s just been fully serviced, and had a small issue with one of the pots fixed, (hence the ‘Job No.’ sticker) and is in full working order.
I bought it on here last year, and despite its quality and tone, I really don't need a head this powerful. I'm downsizing in general, so I'll be putting a few other things up on here shortly.
Also included is a 2-U Gator ABS case to protect it on its travels.
