Re: My Favourite Bass Players

I can't find Justin Chancelor on the site at all. What do we think of him? I know his bass lines aren't the most complicated, but he must get a little credit for some of his rythms and the fact he's in arguably one of the most influential bands of the last couple decades. Justin is a monster, he is...

Re: Cheaper bass guitars

The Sterling Ray 35 I had was an absolute killer, slightly more midrange in price but honestly better than any US musicman I've ever played....at a quarter the price!

Re: Swr working mans 300.....any good?

If I were you, I'd be checking out the markbass stuff. Super grunty, and super light.....and prices right now are extremely reasonable. You'd be surprised at the power you'd get out of even a 2 x 10 combo.

Re: Swr working mans 300.....any good?

SWR are bright and punchy, a lot more modern sounding than the Ashdown stuff which is more of the old school warm vibe. I've owned amps/cabs of both brands in the past....and while I like them both, SWR wins hands down everytime. In saying that, for playing what you mentioned Ashdown may be right up...

Thanks dude. That Grapevine was a play on Gladys Knights version....definitely a little different than the more common versions!

I'm still yet to get out to Revolver since it moved in there. Don't know how busy they are these days?

Haha yeah......guess they are hoping to attract people with the SSL. Interesting option to the 2 biggies up here with the classic consoles, looking forward to checking it out!

Re: BASS / AMP PICTURE THREAD :: Get your cameras ready!

Have just picked up the Markbass CL106 to go with my F1 head. Extremely happy with this rig, super light and portable but grunt galore.
