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

Seriously, I can't let myself look at this any more :rollno:

Hope someone here buys it. Would love to try it out one day. Although 16.5mm is a bit tight for me, I know it's not an issue for many others here. GLWTS....seriously. The gig bag looks great too :cool:

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.

Do you know the string spacing at the bridge?

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

Yeah, that's looking great Michael. you're doing such a terrific job with all the fiddly stuff, which IMO makes all the difference between just a good bass and a fantastic bass.

Nice. I like the extended fretboard doubling as a thumb rest. Very practical and looks great.

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.

Great work Craig - that audio track sounds great, good luck with the Album Launch on the 15th

Love the tone on Junk Trunk!
Thanks mate! The F Bass certainly does record well :)
Craig, I don't think it's so much about the bass but more so about the player :notworthy:

Re: WTB: phil Jones BigHead

Anyone thinking of picking up one of these up i'd highly recommend Pino at Take 5 music!! ..............Thanks to Ivan for organising a local buy as well!!! Not a problem at all Barney. Anything that's conducive to more practice time has got to be a good thing. I'm finding the unit really practical...

Re: I got interviewed :)!

That was a great read Craig. For some reason I was expecting a video interview (wonder why? :hmm ) Best of luck with it all. Sounds like the whole recording process was lots of fun. I haven't had a listen to the band yet, but will get around soon as soon as I get a quiet moment or two. EDIT: Ok I've...
