RIP The Queen...

A sad day to lose the Queen of soul. I thought I'd post this - a really interesting peek into the creative process of one of the great studios of all time. If you haven't seen the Muscle Shoals film get onto it... This is the story of the first session she had in Muscle Shoals - which changed her mu...

Re: FS Fender AVRI 63 Precision Bass

There is some kind of magic pixie dust in these. "Resonant" is the the key word here. Dunno why.

Or say... a Catholic Church in Ballarat.

Don't for a minute pretend that our culture is free of these issues.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Well ... it illustrates the point that we have laws in this country that override cultural traditions that are not appropriate here.

This is just fear mongering to excuse bigotry.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

We have one law in Australia and always will. There's a precedent for this: Indigenous Customary law. It's not recognised. It's not an issue. Never will be bc like certain applications of sharia law - the corporal punishment can be brutal thus unnacceptible in Australia. If Sharia law becomes close ...

Re: Talk to me about Double Bass

Good stuff. Mine are still stretching in. Still need to tune once or twice a set.

For some reason I found I can intonate better with these strings than the Spiros. Dunno why....

Re: Talk to me about Double Bass

I'm not sure why you'd want the vt to be honest. Your amp should be able to give enough eq options. Generally best to keep your signal as clean as possible.

... and yeah low end boom is a major source of feedback particularly with a big rig on a boomy stage. I never gig without hpf.

Re: Talk to me about Double Bass

Yeah na. The Animas are silk core with copper wrap (I believe) so mag pups are out. Thats ok though - you should be able to deal with most situations with a piezo pickup and decent preamp. IMO a good preamp should have a variable HPF and high input impedance (1 - 10meg). parametric controls are good...

Re: Talk to me about Double Bass

Did you say you got a bridge with height adjusters? If so you could go for a Full Circle or Yamahiko. I have an Upton Realist. It's pretty good for a bridge wing piezo... into an AI clarus combo. Perfectly capable with an extension cab and fantastic preamp. Other good option is a contact mic. Your p...
