If there's humans involved, no matter how well trained or skilled they are, and no matter how critical the task, there will at some stage be human error :(

There was a guy on the radio from the manufacturers and he said that as the metal frame of the piano was cracked due to the high tension put on the frame by the strings (20 tons), it was impossible to repair.

And us bassist moan when the jack socket stops working.

Angela Hewitts a fantastic player especially Bach.

41:05 In this 2013 interview Ron explains that for the previous 6 years he only uses his own bass for local gigs . If he has to fly he hires a " bass du jour " and " my job is to make it sound like its not a stranger to me " . 

Regular pianists have no choice .

Chicken Shack are a British blues band, founded in the mid-1960s by Stan Webb, Andy Silvester, and Alan Morley, who were later joined by Christine Perfect in 1967. Chicken Shack has performed with various line-ups, Stan Webb being the only constant member. Wikipedia

 

The moment that Christine Perfect slagged off the (especially tuned) piano at my venue is forever etched on my mind - I used to introduce them as 'The Christine Perfect Band' - they liked that (not) (shrug)

      Hi
      I have compiled a list of beginners basses for a FAQs page on my website. 
      This list could be very long!  But are there any obvious basses that I have forgotten, or any that you don’t think should be on the list? 
      Appreciate the suggestions.

      Anyone here using a ROLI Seaboard product? For instance, the Block, Rise 25/49 or the Grand?
      Info here for anyone unfamiliar with them. They're basically a 'new' type of MIDI controller instrument that allow MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE). Think of them as being a like the MIDI keyboard version of a fretless bass. Sort of.
      If you have one, I'd be grateful to hear about your experiences with it. They get great reviews, but the honest critique of fellow Basschatters is always the best seal of approval
      My current MIDI controller is playing up; hence I'm eyeing the ROLI range as a potential successor. They're quite expensive, but the compact ROLI Block is within budget. Looks very futuristic too... or a bit 'gimpy', depending on your perspective.
