FS: Markbass CMD 151P Combo Sydney $1350

Hey Guys, Suffering a slight crunch at the moment and I need to unload some stuff, so here's my Markbass Combo for sale. Please note that I have some other stuff for sale here and there at the moment, so if something else gets picked up I may change my mind on this, since I use it. Anyway: . Markbas...

Re: What do your kids think of your basses?

My daughter comes to see me play a lot but has zero care in what I buy, sell or play. If Ed Sheeran suddenly took up bass she might get interested. As it is she has no interest in playing or learning. A shame since she has much better timing and rhythm than I do, which is not saying much but anyway,...

Maybe a Poll with 5 options...
- Oct 28th only
- Nov 4th only
- Both dates
- neither dates
- unsure (with option to edit this vote later).
Fine for both at present.

Re: I Will Survive in G? I said No.

The vocalist is the one out there selling the song, you just gotta go with it. Key Change Anecdote: A few years back we were auditioning a vocalist for a blues band. One of the songs was Wayfaring Stranger. One of the girls comes in "It has to be in Ab for me, I've tried over and over and I just can...

Re: WTB - MM Stingray

That's the one that was just up the road from me. I considered checking it out. Has the extra routing under the pickguard? How is it? Cool bass, what year is that? Is it one of the Charvel Stingrays? Wasn't it Grover Jackson that built them? It was from '79 onward, as far as I know. Leo and George ...

Re: Ahh NOW I get it !

These Chromes are still bright and SO CRISP sounding, if that is a valid description. <SNIP> So you flatties, will the La Bella's sound similar? No, not remotely similar. When people talk about dull thumpy flats, they're talking about the La Bellas. Chromes, TI's and Rotos are at the opposite end o...

FS: GK MB 200 Price Drop $350 ono shipped in OZ

Hey Guys, Selling my GK MB 200 head. Sounds great, and it's stupidly small and loud. These things are usually sold as backup heads to keep in your gig bag, but they're way more than that, and easily up to covering plenty of gig situations. Also work well as a headphone practice amp too. As a backup ...

Re: Zoom MS-60B Firmware update V2.0 with loads more effects!

Very cool for 60B users. Is the B3 still stuck at only 3 effects at same time? That'd be a nice update. From using the G3 (which has this) I can say that I found the extra three offscreen effects to be very frustrating in that you need to keep a mental map of what offscreen effects is where and whe...
