Re: NBD Ibanez 1977

Nice! My 2nd bass. Loved it too. Traded it on an almost exactly the same Fender P in about '79 & honestly the Fender wasn't any better or worse. .. but the guy who stole it obviously thought it was :ticked:

Re: Music Man amps

Ain't they the ones with a SS pre amp mated to an all tube power section? @Slapfest "reliable. ..that's not something I'd often say about a tube amp. .. " I always find these comments strange. .

Re: Thinking about a new amp...

The GK &TH500 are about as far apart from each other as amps go. I've only used the GK at a shared backline gig. ..found it ok. Love the Aggy. .. very reliable and once you grasp the controls. ..I find its very much a plug n play amp. I rarely touch anything on it. ... a slight tweak for the room. ....

Re: Countdown

There was awful ones on every week. ..just some had more than others. ..and imo...once we got thru to the mid 80s. ..99% were. But SOME -even some of the awful ones - were unforgettable. . Eg... ACDC's 1st appearance. ..Bon in the schoolgirl outfit with toof missin... & smoking yuk yuk! As mentioned...

Re: Post your rigs - PART TWO

At great sufferance (?) I left the Super Bassman at home & took the B|Amp to ruin thru the NV215 .... superb.

Re: FS: Ampeg V4B (early '70s blackline Magnavox era) $2K

Excellent amp. ..and in superb nic too. Sought after 'metal knob' model too.... unparalleled tone outta these. The new reissue is close but hasn't the sweet (or nasty ) growl that these can get.
Goodluck with the sale.

Re: Pros and cons of selling the big rig

If you ain't using em. ..get rid of em. That said, if you LIKE the 115 or 410... any chance or worth of keeping either and getting a matching one. .. I sold my big stuff at one stage only to buy it back. .. and I've also got 2 lightweight but GREAT sounding 115s - put em together and it's hard to be...

Re: String broke at silk end - my fault?

I've contacted the string co. .. once in my 40yrs of gigging. Gotta replacement (string or set. ..can't remember ) that's the only problem I've ever had. .. think it was a similar situation to yours.
