Re: .Has anyone had any experience with durbano magnetics.

Welcome to the forum Lyrebird. Great to have you. I've never heard of Durbano or Mr Fabulous, but I'm sure all the PU nerds on here will be interested in your findings.

Re: Small Rig

40 kilos? no wonder my back hated it. Halfway up a double storey set of stairs I felt it slipping, so I let go, if it broke I'd borrow someone else's amp, I had stopped caring. It slid all the way down to the basement level with a loud thud. Worked first time and for the next five years til I trade...

They're good old steel and sharpened up pretty well using a trick I used from Crimson Guitar. https://i.imgur.com/tVvRBgX.jpg Started off with this. https://i.imgur.com/4XNqNKf.jpg Then vigorous sanding with 80 and then 240.

Re: SINGLE STRING SLAP PERMUTATIONS??

Hi Aaron, welcome to OBF. We like stingrays and bacon, so you should fit in well around here. :) A couple things stand out to me (as a teacher and a player)... 1. A proper DI feed from the bass into the camera/computer will make the bass sound a lot clearer. 2. Slow down each exercise to a step by s...

Re: Small Rig

How great is it that we're well past the 1980s, when a small rig was an EV-TL 15" and a Peavey MkIV. Neither of them lightweights.

I really like that slotted headstock. Are the tuners original? Could you show us a pic of the back of the headstock?

all companies could take a leaf out of their book, awesome.

Hipshot were similarly amazing to me too, wonder why the guitar/bass hardware companies are so good and everyone else so bad?
