North East Bass Bash - SUNDAY MARCH 1ST

Recommended Posts

Is that being too cheeky of me though? Its like ringing and asking them to work their day off. Or trying to slip through usual appointment/shop processes.

Of course, if they were happy to do it then I would expect to pay for their skills and time, but even so, I don't want to take the piss here and put people on the spot. ;)

;) Rugged good looks, rapier wit, the wisdom that only comes with maturity, taste and charm... all qualities I lack! :)

Are we there yet? Are we? Are we?

Nearly time for the bassbashbosh, looking forward to it.

I'll be bringing,

SWR750x
Schroeder 21012'a'like
Overwater J 5
Home build P 5
Leads, cables, pedals and various other bits'n'bobs which clutter up my gig box

Was going to bring the SWR cabs but my back is still knacking from putting them away last weekend ;) and besides, the Schro'a'like is still in the boot from last night :P

Yes that is being cheeky and you shall be rewarded for your cheek - I'll be happy to carry out a set-up unless Dave Wilson beats me to it. It would help to know what bass you have so that I can carry the right tools. I guess if you've bought it from HarryPotter it may be a Quidditch J-type fitted with Hogwart Super Slinkys? My usual rate will apply even though it will be a Sunday - the exception would be that it would be free if you were female and bore a striking resemblance to Elle McPherson. If however the resemblance was to Jodie Marsh I wouldn't touch it (apparently Ms. Marsh has many bruises on her body where men have indeed touched her with a 10 foot bargepole)

See you Sunday

Hahahahah - close. Its a Cort Curbow 4. Which is pretty much the Nimbus 2000 (broom) of basses I think. :)

I don't think the strings need changing after all (for some reason they initially felt thicker but I'd only had the bass about two hours when I posted). But I would definitely like the string action lowering/tweaking.

Unless she's really let herself go in recent years then I'm afraid we're both out of luck and money will have to do. Plus I'm not female so would be a little worried about looking like Elle. :rolleyes:

Cheers mate. This is much appreciated.

Hi all

The first Bass Bash of 2009 is confirmed - Sunday, March 1st, 2pm-5pm. The hall is nice and big, so bring your friends!

Seaton Delaval Arts Centre
Avenue Road
Seaton Delaval
Northumberland
NE25 0DU
[url="http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=NE25+0DU&sll=55.073137,-1.525001&sspn=0.026683,0.062656&g=seaton+delaval%5D&ie=UTF8&ll=55.072311,-1.525919&spn=0.006671,0.015664&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr"]clicky for map[/url]

It's not far from Blyth, Cramlington and Whitley Bay, and it's ten minutes from the north side of the Tyne Tunnel... just up the A19.

The load-in is a doddle.. straight off the street into the hall. Parking isn't tricky, but you might need to leave your car in adjacent street. Tea & coffee will be available.

As mentioned earlier, a couple of quid towards hall hire would be nice but optional.

So... what y'all bringing?[/quote]

I'm planning to be there as my band rehearsal has been cancelled. I know where Seaton Delaval is, I know the ice cream place - but not the Arts Centre.

Its on Avenue Road (apparently), if that helps.

Edit: Lol. Sorry, I just noticed the post you quoted had the full address on anyway. I only read the flyer.

Providing I get my washing machine sorted out I'll bet there with Trace Elliot and Warwick flavored gear. Might even bring little Liamtbass along with me, he's just started playing in a band at school.

Great afternoon.. thanks to all for coming!

Special mention should be made to the one and only Dave Wilson of [url="http://www.dwilsonguitars.com/"]www.dwilsonguitars.com[/url] for a generous donation which ensured the afternoon was free entry.

Here's the photos, spread across the next few posts... feel free to put names to faces.

Well done Michael, a cracking day!

Mind I think GAS has been prematurely induced in a few people. :rolleyes:

Unfortunately, my mate Craig (non-BassChatter, 3rd pic down on post #121) has been swayed to the dark side and despite my best efforts has decided that his first bass will be... a Fender! :) No accounting for taste! :D
