Loving being the bassist again!!

Post by Jazzbass » Mon Oct 25, 2010 8:00 am

Last night's gig. We finished and in 5 minutes my gear was all in the car.
Jazz Bass, lead, GB Shuttle 6.0/210T, power lead, mic, mic lead, stands. In the car ready to go.
Man, I like simple!!!

We spent the rest of the tear down hour packing up the keys, drums and PA gear. Sux to be them.

Unfortunately for my back, my taste in amplification is a rack-mount tube head on top of two 4x10s. That's what you get for chasing the vintage dragon...

...and the drummer plays an electronic kit. Something ain't quite right here.
A-boom boom boom boom!
