Yikes! that is my set! I used to get Labella's but the mighty RS don't stock 'em no more. http://www.steinberworld.com for all your headless needs. they go in to the minuest detail on some pretty scary stuff... but as a resource it's very knowledgeable. Hit Rog up too, he loves Steinberger's even mo...

quite an interesting read. about the D'ard Chromes. they could be $218 for all I care, these strings are great. they sound better the longer they are on. In all seriousness they are one of the best Music purchases I have ever made. LaBella. Pretty good too, I've never used the flats... only the 1/2'...

heh, the joy of the new bass.

One of my ex-students picked up a Corvette5 a few years back
waaaaay to narrow for me , and far too much natural clang , but for Pick Style Rock which was his bag, it was a beauty. Cutting like tone.
2 J's model... no H/B's.

yeah we need arguements. It's a good way to learn , and if you get heated test your own belief. It's a near flawless Self-Correcting Technique. but I'm stoked to have 2 people agree with me... in the same thread. World Record. back to "dodgy" gear reviews, I'm grateful for the tip earlier in thread....

Downbeat Magazine's "Blindfold" test column is legend. publish what you like, from whatever source... I wasn't having a crack at your piece, just saying that tech wise it's all a bit much for me. I know Players should figure out how there equipment works, basic electronics etc, but It does my head i...

Interesting read. It made my tiny brain hurt. I had to stop. Gear review ethics.... there is a can o' worms if ever there was one. I could add to it, but then I might start on Gear Endorsement and the site might never recover. Use an unshielded 2-conductor cable. Heavy gauge, 18 or less. that is pre...

I always thought the clang and overtones of no muting was part of the Pickstyle charm. Use the hard edge of your right hand on the bridge as a mute. like a good old fashioned dampener, cept on the top side. with practice you can get different "effects" of dampening, toneally it's a new bag o' tricks...

Here is a variation of this idea , shown to me by Richard Pickard (Bass Player for Paul McClaney, Oval Office and Solaa). Its a 32 bar piece , walk it in 4/4 first 2 bars is upwards in F (F G A Bb C D E F) bars 3 and 4 is descending STARTING FROM THE 9th and missing the 2nd (G F E D C Bb A F) (this ...

I was hoping someone, rather than me, was going to say that Rog. ta. Randomplay , yes you are right. It changes the pattern of the neck, for want of a better saying and also eats into your high end. as for cycles or patterns on the Bass Guitar , think of 4ths. as in the 4th tone of the scale.

Have a laugh , but after I got married I found patting the neck with my left hand gives a percussion click vaguely appropriate in loose and sparse Funk Jams. The neck of my Bass of course.

It's sort of a inverted wave... aimed at D string on a fret. yes any fret.

I'm covered anywhere in NZ

Not include deliberate damage. Thats guilty party's insurers problem, or as likely the Ministry of Justice, Fines Dept

Ring State if this sounds like a good deal.

I've got a serious jones for Ron Carter's approach at the moment.
His 7/4 groove on Billy Cobham's "Spectrum" borders on genius.
