Re: Bass Strings Online closing down

Meh, my shopping experience with BSO online was terrible. I would never have shopped there again anyway.

Re: Big Stingray changes by Ernie Ball

Interesting. I guess one day they'll also include an active/passive switch with passive tone roll off. String thru body option would also be nice :2c: There have been stingray models before with string-thru. Someone will correct me, but my understanding of why they've never offered a passive switch...

Bump with extra trades. The following might interest me:

Re: Single Bridges

<SNIP> Question: does anyone have experience with single bridges (good quality)? I had a look at the Babicz and like what I see but they’re just a little expensive. <SNIP> Regards, Michael I have never tried one and I have no idea whether the Babicz makes any difference at all, but the engineering ...

Re: MotoGP and World Superbikes are losing their appeal for me

I kinda agree, and as a personal thing I don't care for Marquez much. MotoGP hasn't been the same since traction control. I understand it, and I don't blame anyone for doing what they can to avoid a power-on high side, but it has taken a huge element of skill out of the sport now that they can basi...

Re: Band PA?

I'm getting pretty convinced to buy a pa now, I want modular as possible. So two powered speakers like the 15s... but smaller maybe, for cafe gigs. No subwoofer, but just a mixer. Is it possible to set the speakers just behind the vocalist so no need for a foldback? For cafe-volume gigs in a small ...

Re: Band PA?

Wow, go you Bazz, that's great! A quick glance at the calendar and it looks like 3 out of 9 gigs this month have their own setup. That setup varies from a full house PA and operator down to speakers and a power amp that you plug your own desk into. Last month it was 2 out of 7. So lots of our venue...

Re: Fancy Neck Woods?

I guess this doesn't count since it's not actually wood, but I've always wanted to try a Status Graphite neck.

Re: Show us your gigs.

Here's a short excerpt just from an iPhone in the audience. The camera goes from postage stamp to "proper" full screen at about 1:00 in.

Re: Show us your gigs.

Last weekend we were at the Sydney Blues Challenge. We didn't win but had a pretty good gig.
