Re: Show off your 6ers!

Love how this guy uses this 6 string. Great groove. Yamaha sounds very nice.

Re: Show off your 6ers!

Thanks for all the comments guys, interesting info. I'm also interested in people's experiences with production basses.

Re: Show off your 6ers!

Thanks Michael, Kermit sure is pretty. I imagine with your experience owning the fan-fret of the dingwal that your version is similar? Why do you think it is relegated with the arrival of manta?

Show off your 6ers!

I've been curious about 6ers lately, could just be usual endless GAS :cry

Anyhoo, who's rocking the 6 string hereabouts?

I'd love to see some pics and get to know about why you bought a particular brand/make, build quality, playability, other issues that you didn't forsee etc.

Re: Slap bass live - getting levels/EQ right

Ok, so finally had the gig and opened with the slap bass line. I dialled in some more mids, and used the lower attenuation value for the earplugs which change specifically the 125Hz freq point from 19dB to 15dB. I think that helped a great deal. Anyway, was a happy camper on stage.

Re: NBD - Yamaha BB735A

Ah, ok mate, should have guessed, lol! The preamp sounds great, however it's hard to assess due to the hum and earthing issues I have. I'll advise when I get it fixed. On the Dingwall PJ, how did it compare to your Yamaha tone wise? Well, that's a good question. I didn't have them side by side. Fro...

Re: Slap bass live - getting levels/EQ right

Best setting for slap? Mute button. Well, agree in so far as I also think there is way too much emphasis on slap bass and excessive noodling up the neck in just about every demo video. It's almost like someone who has skills can't stand the fact that they actually play a support role in holding dow...

Re: NBD - Yamaha BB735A

Sorry, onboard preamp. I've played the PJ 4 string Dingwall, amazing bass. The Yamaha basses are a lot of fun though.

Re: NBD - Yamaha BB735A

How are you going with this bass? How are you finding the OBP? Constantly tempted to go down the road of installing a preamp - expensive mod though and I swore I'd never mod again. I found this one below from Yamaha Guitar Development (their custom shop?). http://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-1...

My '81 Musician is like that. 5.1kg. I believe it's made of Granite Ash. :lol: that's why I own this 5" monster DSL strap (used to own the duostrap, but this seems to work) http://www.dslstraps.com.au/product/premium-straps/5-0-padded-garment-blackblack/ http://www.dslstraps.com.au/wp-content/uploa...

Re: NBD Stingray adventures

Solid colour, the year I think the guy I bought it off said it was 2015, I’ll be popping the neck soon for a good cleaning from grinty hands so I will know more soon. Solid colour. Well that kills that theory..... I had wondered if the ones with the more pronounced grain might have been lighter and...

Re: Slap bass live - getting levels/EQ right

OK thanks, so if I dial in a little boost on the B3 and mids to taste on board the soundguys should be fine? Yeah pretty much. Most decent sound guys will know how to deal with it. If the difference is horrendous, they'll usually let you know, at which point you can start on a plan B. I should clar...
