I was going to buy a Jack Casady bass, but....


Recommended Posts

I got fed up with the wait for left handers continually being pushed back. 😒

So, on a whim I bought a Teenage Engineering OP-Z groove box, and it’s awesome!

Plan was to just create some beats and sequences to play along to.  But I’ve had it a couple of weeks now and I’m lost in a world of techno dance groves. 😍 

Weird for a 55 year old whose never been to a rave, and last time in a nightclub was during the ‘Hitman and her’ era?  

I guess I’ve always like Faithless though. 😀

Me too, almost! I started another thread this morning specifically on this issue. (long story shortened the retailer I spoke to basically said Gibson/ Epiphone deliveries are pot luck what gets sent and when they'd arrive). Trying to find another semi hollow solution now...

There's lots going on there, and hours of fun . 
I looked at this on you tube , and  there's an abundance of stuff on there.

Now get  a moog to go with it 😼

And now I get to get synth gas also? 😂

TBH this thing is likely to be above my grade for some time, and even without bringing in samples etc the built in synths have great sounds.  

What’s amazing for me is that it’s taken me right back to when I first started playing music, 16 year’s old with two mates when parents out at work. All taking it in turns on guitar, bass and drums. No skill or knowledge, but just driven and amazed at producing ‘music’.  It’s good to have a fresh start at something.  😃

It looks a bit complicated in places, but the you tube clips ive seen make it not as daunting as it could be . I think being bass players , we just tend to plug and play etc . 
Brlieve it or not , I'm going through a similar phase to yourself .

I'm a couple of years older , but stopped gigging years ago. 
A couple of years ago , I got the moog grandmother after seeing it reviewed

I found it daunting , and  as it's a little on the large side I was struggling where to put it in my small flat . Problem solved during lockdown , and I'm slowly getting tangerine dream and klaus Schulz sounds . 
A couple of weeks ago , I saw a moog dfam and it was too hard to refuse on fleabay . 
I'm now contemplating off loading a couple of basses 🙀

Enjoy your new toy 😼

Moog grandmother, just googled it. Wow that’s quite hardcore. Moog emulator on your iPad not good enough? 😉 

I also don’t gig anymore.  Trashed hearing. Hearing aids shut down at high volume/pressure of the bass and without them i struggle to hear the rest of the band.  But it’s not all woe, with headphones, AmpliTube, loopers, 6 string guitar etc I am producing and hearing sounds that 20 years ago I could only have dreamed of!

creativity and expression has never been more accessible, shame that most youngsters seem to be more interested in Instagram and image. 😢

I have the moog apps as well..😼

I'ts just better having a real one . Although pricey , they are  not as astronomical in price than they were. 
 

Yeah , thankfully technology is giving us  so many  things we'd never have thought possible . 
Who would've thought you could play gigs with small amps  the size of your hand ? 
Good to see we're not too old to keep up with what's going on ..😺

May not be the route you want to go down, but, there seem to be a couple of used semi acoustic lefties (Warwick Star Bass and an Epi JC) currently for sale via Arni’s Lefty Bass site ?
