Re: Beginner Bass Questions

Covers or Originals or a mix? Country OR Western or jazz? Narrow down your target crowd - even hire a hall and do something informal, I dunno but if you do want to gig you will. RSAs do jazz, country or rock's' roll evenings - book a hall and invite your mates to cover costs, Ask 95 BFM for potentia...

Re: Humidity effects

Fodera recommends storing your bass in 40 - 60% relative humidity or leave it in the case.also between 50 - 80 degrees F. , or, get a Steinberger (has to be an L2).

Are low impedance cabinets inferior?

Bob Gallien (in norm stock tons bass book) claims he doesn't like 4ohm cabinets or low impedance cabinets in general.he claims you lose power in the speaker cord and connectors and lose control of the cone? I drive a 4 ohm 4x10 with a Gk 400rb. Anyone care to shine a light?
