50% off always sounds good!
Hey Bass Chat Bass players! Do you want to learn all your favorite songs right off the record? Are you ready to step up your improvisation and composition skills?
Use the right tools to go further, faster. Check out our new Call and Response Ear Training Tools at reelear.com and discover the power of infinite ear training. You choose the musical variables you want to work on, hit play and the apps generate random melodic, apreggiated, and harmonic Call and Response Dictations based on your choices. Just play back what you hear. Go from simple to extremely complex, short to long, slow to fast and learn to really express yourself through your bass. Because you control the variables, the apps always create relevant dictations for your present needs, and because the app then creates a random diction, you can´t just memorize or guess what you are going to hear. That really accelerates your music ear training! And there is little or no music theory required, which makes it easy for begining musicians to start connecting their ear to the music.
There is a 15 day free trial, no strings attached. Cancel anytime during the trial period and your credit card will NOT be charged. Furthermore, we love basschat.co.uk, so we are offering you a 50% discount for life on access to our web apps (offer valid on Yearly Individual Memberships from now until April 21, 2021).
Our apps are web pages, so there is no software to download or install and you can use them on your computer, tablet or phone. Very convenient.
We are musicians too, and we are focused on your success. We have lot´s of screencast to help you use the apps efficiently and in some pretty creative ways, and we are always standing by to help out with any questions, comments and suggestions that you may have.
Best of luck on your music learning journey.
Since we last posted here, Markbass have been investing heavily in new equipment to keep ahead of the increasing demand of Markbass Strings.
Back in May we hinted that they were working on new coated strings. I am delighted to report that their LongEvo Strings are now available and we want you to have the opportunity to try them out. They are available in Stainless Steel or Nickels, they use their own Markbass proprietary coating method which is ecological/biocompatible and ultra-thin, to give a smooth playing experience, without compromise of great tone and feel... We've tried them and they absolutely do the business!
So, we are happy to once again offer Basschat members an opportunity to give them a go…. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
For more details click this link: Markbass Strings for Basschat Members
We are offering two discount codes on our web shop:
LONGEVO30 – this code will give you 30% discount on any LongEvo Coated strings, and
STRINGS25 – This gives 25% discount for ALL Markbass strings, In case you missed out last time we did this (or you are ready to re-string!)
This offer will only be limited by time and a fixed stock allocation, so if you’re after the more conventional gauges, hopefully you'll want to click above fairly quickly!
We again welcome and look forward to more of your feedback.
Hi to all at Basschat from MSL Pro…. We’re the UK distributor for Markbass and some other fine brands!
MSL Pro looks after sales, marketing and service/support in the UK, working with the dealer network. We’re very happy to offer any advice/technical info you may need. If you want to talk to us rather than post here, it will probably be easier to message us or feel free to tag us @MSL Pro in your own posts (what we can’t do though is speculate for Italy on future products and other similar topics!).
Some of you will already know us from various guitar shows, and we were really hoping to meet more of you at the Manchester Bass Show in March, unfortunately we all know what got in the way of that…
Our plan for the show was to launch Markbass Strings and a bunch of other new stuff and, as usual for us, put some great show deals in place through our retail partners. So, the guys at Basschat have let us have a sponsored post to tell you more about Markbass Strings.
Rather than put a label on some good quality OEM factory made strings, they wanted to carry forward the local string-making tradition of the Abruzzo region and work with local craftsmen, so last autumn Markbass acquired D’Orazio Strings, whose origins can be traced back to 17th century. The machinery and the makers were moved to the Markbass factory and they are now in full production of handmade bass strings with five different electric bass options (flats, steels, nickels and soft touch in 4, 5 and 6 string sets with a selection of gauges) and double bass strings. They've already been reviewed here: http://www.mixdownmag.com.au/reviewed-markbass-groove-ns-5-045-125-bass-strings
If you would like to give them a try yourself, go and take a look at our newly updated website, where, using the unique Basschat discount code BCSTRINGS35 you’ll get a 35% discount until midnight on Monday. The code is only useable once per member, but it is otherwise only limited by the stock currently available on the site!
Our Website can be found at www.mslpro.co.uk , shipping is free for orders over £50, but only £2.99 for orders under £50. You’ll also find some fantastic deals on the ex-demo gear we would have had at the Manchester show. We know this has been publicised here before (thanks for that!), but do have another look. It’s been updated because we’ve found some more! We’ve also updated some prices 😊.
(All the amps, cabs and combos listed were un-boxed for the guitar show, ex-demo or returns, but are sold with a new warranty. They range from “brand new but the box has been opened to put on the Birmingham Guitar Show/Manchester Bass Show stand”, to “been out to a dealer/reviewer/artist and come back… some of the packaging is a bit battered but what is inside is absolutely fine” and they’ve been priced accordingly. It might even have been used by someone you’ve heard of! Some of the DV Mark gear was used by Eric Gales last year and some by Cory Wong and his band in February!).
