Re: FS P Deluxe USA price drop!

I do like these! I wonder why there was never a 5 string version?

I think I've seen something similar used by Scott from Scotts Bass Lessons.
I thought the same thing. I'm not a relic guy, but I do like Scott's beast. And this one is also very nice. Well done!

Crap, not another Ozbasser joining the Chemo Club :( That's even if the cystic fibrosis allows it?

Re: Gibson facing bankruptcy

Here come the former Gibson brand "Vintage Reissues". Or maybe a limited edition "Bankruptcy Model" at $10,000 each?

Advice on TV tuners for PC

I've been using my tablet to watch sports and occasional tv shows during quiet moments at my shop. Most days it works fine. Other days, usually when my team is playing, the internet quality is poor and it keeps freezing. So I'm toying with the idea of getting a tv tuner for my laptop that picks up f...

Re: 2018 iPhone killers?

Just an update. At the moment I'm very seriously considering just keeping the S7. Very tempted by the S9+, but it doesn't seem to be enough of a step up. And ya know what? They're no noticeable step up from my S6 to the now ex-wife's S7. So we've basically gone from S6 to S9 with hardly any changes...

Nut looks weird in that ...
You ain't kidding! It looks like it's moved sideways by 5mm. Probably an easy fix but it sure looks disconcerting.

Re: TC Electronics RH450 that won't power up

Fuses inside are a thing unfortunately. Many years ago I borrowed a Marshall bass head while my Labsystems amp was getting fixed. It wasn't great but it was getting me out of trouble .... Until one day it went "Bang". Not only was the internal fuse blown, the shrapnel also took out several nearby co...

Re: Tube Amps

What does a Tube amp and seafood have in common? Everyone else seems to absolutely love it, people can't seem to fathom that I don't like it at all, as such I've tried very hard to like it because maybe it's an acquired taste? All to no avail .... Just not my thing!

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

I'm too lazy to go back and find it, but when the talk of a banking royal commission first started, I predicted the axe would fall in the Financial Planning sector. Was I right, or was I right? So glad I got out. And I hope all those nasty people I was working for are heavily impacted by whatever co...

Re: Can a faulty lead "Scream"? EDIT- no it can't. Preamp Problem.

OK I think I've gotten to the bottom of it. Scrap that! It did it again during sound check last night. I've taken it to the local music shop this morning. They have a tech who's comes in once a week and is spoken about very highly by all the local musicians, so let's see if he can figure it out. I'...

Re: WTB 5 pot preamp for my bass

My suggestion would be to keep an eye on the Talkbass classifieds. I was looking for the exact same thing recently, and found they pop up fairly regularly over there. They're small enough to send in the mail for not a lot of money. I scored an EMG pre for only $150 shipped. It completely transformed...
