Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

I only started watching last night. Happy that Japan won only because Colombia really seemed to be hamming it up at any opportunity to extract a free kick. That's what it looked like to me anyway, maybe that's just part of the game and they all do it :shrug: Totally agree. I don't think the free ki...

Re: Heavier Strings for Eb Standard tuning?

Heavy guage strings will generally result in higher tension so yes, it should work well for drop tuning. I've only ever tuned down to Eb though. No issue even with standard guage strings.

Re: FS: 2017 Warwick Thumb Bass NT LTD Custom Shop

That's a darn good price for a Masterbuilt. Looks amazing and must sound pretty incredible too.

With the grounding wire, things settle after a while and what was a good contact becomes a dodgy one down the track. Might be worth soldering that grounding wire to a some foil tape as an ounce of prevention.
It will have to be copper foil tape as you can't solder to aluminium foil tape.

Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Re: NBD - but it's not a bass!

That's an absolutely beautiful bike Pete. I don't think I've seen anything like it. What a beast :D

I've always wanted to learn to ride a motorbike, but everyone at home seems to go crazy at the mere mention of it. Maybe one day.
