Re: The JMJ has landed - initial verdict

Aw man, this hurts to read. Have you had a chance to try it in a band situation? Mike Hi Mike, Im not in a band at the moment, but im confident that the flats alone would ensure it fills its own sonic space in a band. Cheers Andy No worries. The only reason I mention it is because I've had basses w...

Re: Would this be a good idea ?

@RedVee, if you're still shopping around for a jam to get out to in Western Sydney, you might care to try the one at the Carousel Inn, Rooty Hill on Thursday nights. As a disclaimer, I often fill in for the organiser, Al Britton, when he has a gig that clashes. Anyway, pretty friendly bunch, everyth...

Re: Zoom or Similar For Stage Piano?

Not sure exactly what your daughter needs, but the B3 only loops for 40 seconds. I could imagine that being a pretty major limitation for a lot of uses. I have a B3 and a couple of other loopers, and the B3 would be my last choice in loopers. Of course it does a pile of other stuff which might be ha...

Re: Would this be a good idea ?

This was a pop up ad somewhere a few days ago. I’ve had a look, I’ve never heard of this or the guy before; and I’m not really a Country fan. But we have sung a couple and are looking at adding some Colonial type songs into the future. I am a little frustrated at not getting to play now. This may b...

HOLD pending blah blah: Aguilar DB900 Tube DI $300 Sydney

Again with the cash crunch, I can live without this, BARELY. IMO it's the best DI for bass I've ever heard. I use it live even if I'm not going to the board it sounds that good. Settles down basses with over-hot signals, does a lovely, mild and very organic-sounding soft clipped compression if press...

Re: Show us your gigs.

We had a gig shortly before Christmas at the Home Tavern in Wagga. The day after we were also the house band for the Bidgee Blues Club jam. Here are a few shots from the jam. In the second of them you can see the lifting paint near the bridge of my StingRay. Not sure what to do (if anything) about t...

Re: Found a MM Stingray School me please

The non-compensated nut is nothing to worry about, I have a three-band with plain nut. If you're concerned that it doesn't add up to how new it looks, and hence its legitimacy, you can post the serial number to the Ernie Ball Forum and EBMM will respond with the year of manufacture, the dealer it wa...

Re: Health Goals for 2018

Thanks Mark. I am currently holding at around 78-80kg. I kinda go up and down in a weekly cycle. Was up around 105 when I started. I *was* carrying it pretty well if I say myself, but it felt wayyy wrong. For some added perspective, when I was racing pushbikes, I was 65-66 kg (with a resting heart r...
