Re: That Mark King Tone?

It's a combination of a few things. I think the main ingredients are VERY light gauge strings, smiley face eq (VERY HAPPY) and his use of chorus/flange (or whatever effects he uses). He doesn't always play graphite neck basses and still gets that sound. There was a guy years ago who had a page or si...

Re: where to get pots for my Lakland 55 02

Sorry to hijack - Once I purchased a used 55-01 , the volume pot was dodgy . I emailed Lakland directly asking what pot I should buy. Dan Lakin replied back himself and asked for my address. 5 days later the pot arrived at my Brisbane address free of charge. Hows that for customer service? :) At any...

Re: Demos and slapping; what is with that?

This video came to mind as soon as I read your post. This is from a store wanting to sell amps... I didn't really get to hear the amp.

Re: Marcus Miller selling some of his bass collection

The amount of people who ask "How do I get Marcus Millers tone?". Finally you can find out for yourself if its "in the hands" haha. If I had 5k to spend on a bass, I would seriously consider one of those jazzes!!

Re: F/S '03 Stingray 5 piezo Teal $1675 with case

This was the 4th stingray I have owned and by far the best out of them. Definitely not teal – yuk I hate the teal colour. Pretty sure it is Carbon Blue Pearl. With that pickguard it looks even better in person. Not sure if that is considered sparkle paint but it does have a slight sparkle to it and ...

Re: FS Only: EA iAmp 500

This thing sounds pretty sterile in my opinion. Lets hope you don't post on my for sale threads! :eyebrow: Back to the amp. I had one of these, and for comparison have owned other little amps, Markbass LMII and Aguilar TH500. I still have fond memories of it. It is a great amp! Yes they are CLEAN -...

Re: Is there any possible way to live in the U.S.?

Oh and as mentioned as well you could look at student visa. But that is going to be big $$$ in education fees which is expensive here. You are basically paying for the visa.
