Re: Coupling. How do you lay your cabs?

What Bill is saying is a bass cab will couple with the floor acoustically even if it is elevated. This is because of the physical size of the wavelength of low frequencies. I can bore you with the math but from memory, a cab is still coupling with the floor acoustically at the frequencies that matte...

Re: Coupling. How do you lay your cabs?

If phatter is your goal, then yep, you're on the right path. But as always with physics, there's no free lunch. What you gain in lows your lose in clarity. Not so much when you're standing right in front of your cab, but more so for anyone who is standing off-axis. And that means most of the crowd, ...

Re: Health Goals for 2018

So my 12 month anniversary of chemo came and went, so we are now up to 12 months since my depleted immune system dished up a nasty bout of shingles. I'd put a reminder in my phone calendar in big capital letters, because now I can get a vaccine. I definitely want this vaccine! I book the appointment...

Bit hard to do on a motor bike? I'm guessing you have to lay it down when you are away from a garage with a stand.
On a motorbike, it's basically time to call a tow truck. There's no spare!

Always put the spare tyre underneath the car.
That's a good tip for next time. Thanks.

Re: Rant Thread !

Have you ever changed a tyre on a BMW? The jack is dreadful. There's also a special anti theft wheel nut which is hard to figure out in the dark at 1am. Then with all 5 wheel nuts removed, the flat tyre still wouldn't come off. I tried applying a bit of force and the car fell off the jack. Do you th...

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

I loved watching Doohan win everything! His skill on the bike was obvious, but I particularly liked what he did to the heads of anyone who got close. Creville, Capirossi, Puig, even Daryl Beatie - all showed enough speed, but Doohan messed with their heads and/or outsmarted them at every opportunity...

Congrats to France. What's the bet we'll be back here in 4 years shocked they've done nothing about the diving?

Re: TO ALL WORKING BASSISTS

As an Accountant I was asked once in 25+ years if I could do some work for free. An industry association wanted me to come and talk to their members about better understanding the tax system, but they couldn't afford to pay. Which industry group? Well lets just say I was surprised to find out that B...

10 years - tell me you didn't miss out on your long service? 10 years and 2 months ... so I get my long service paid out. And my annual bonus as well, so the timing is perfect. Paid out? Rich bloke like you will just chuck it on he pile or blow it on more basses. Give me 3 months off any day :) But...
