Newcastle GTG

Let's Get ToGether Newy. I'm suspecting there may be a few of us Novacastrians out there in Ozbass land who are yet to experience a bass themed GTG. I reckon it would be a tops way to spend a lazy Saturday arvo tinkering with bass gear we normally wouldn't be able to and meet up with like minded bas...

Re: Gear you're dying to try out

Now is the time to talk of a GTG for Newcastle. By the sounds of this, there may be more than a few bass lovers calling themselves Novacastrians on Ozbass (especially with fridges!). Sorry for hijacking the thread, but I'm willing to organise this for further down the track. I shall start a new thre...

Re: Gear you're dying to try out

I've always wanted to give an Ampeg SVT VR and matching fridge a run through its paces. Crank it right up and let it have it. Use it for what it was designed for. Put it in 6th gear and go pedal to the metal, full throttle and give it all its got. It's a V8 bass machine ready to rumble. I wouldn't d...

That workbench looks inspiring to build guitars on, she's a beauty.
And the guitars look good too!

Re: I desperately need help with technique and don't know where to begin

Something I've just cottoned on to is humming or singing or even mouthing the notes as you play them. I'm far from having mastered this technique, but have found an improvement in my feel and flow across the strings. I run out of breath and lose it, but it certainly helps thinking about your playing.

Re: Post your favourite 90's songs...

That era had so many cool songs by great bands like Faith No More, Primus, Pearl Jam, Janes Addiction, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nirvana, Chilli Peppers, Skunkhour, Cruel Sea, Tool etc I reckon that this list will go for a loooooooooong time!

Re: Vulfpeck Joe Dart reddit Ask Me Anything

I'd never heard of Vulfpeck until this thread, so I checked em out on YouTube. I'm totally impressed by their musicianship and how much fun they seem to be having playing music. Yeah, Joe Dart sounds unreal on the bass too. Thanks for putting me on to some great new music. I'm gunna hunt down some o...

If no capo, a pencil fastened with an elastic band should do the trick.

Re: Post your Effects setup! (boards, racks, doowhackeys)

^ This is my first fuzz pedal so I have no reference to compare with other pedals, but I like this one. The big dial on top can go from mild, subtle fuzz to meaty sustained fuzz - nothing too harsh. There's smaller dials on either side for volume and intensity of fuzz. The box is big but I'm ok with...
