Re: Any Jazz Bass necks about?

Good to hear you've got it sorted. I am really happy with my Le Bass - both channels, and I haven't even tried either of the fusion modes yet

Re: Any Jazz Bass necks about?

Don’t have one sorry, but I did see that they occasionally appear on trademe when I was deciding if a neck on a friends jazz bass was fixable

Re: Teaser - next project

Top half of body now more or less routed to shape. Bottom half marked out showing what the neck joint will look like. I did bust off a chunk of the lower horn routing the top (now glued back in place), so need to be a little more careful! Need to route a control cavity and sound chamber in the top, ...

Re: Thomastik -Infeld Powerbass bass strings

Let us know what you think of them when you get them. I like their Jazz Flats. At the moment I have got as set of Ernie Ball Slinky cobalt flats on my fretless Jazz bass which I really like.

Re: Thomastik -Infeld Powerbass bass strings

Hi Ryla.

Musicways has them on their website (http://musicways.co.nz/customer/product ... =21&page=1), so they are imported into NZ. There is a link to dealers there. I don't think the shops stock them, but should be able to order them in for you.

Re: Teaser - next project

Got the router out to make the pickup cavity. The perspex template makes it pretty easy

Re: Music software for tablets

A short update to my old thread. I have been really happy with MobileSheets and just keep importing anything I need to play that I haven't memorised. I have been wanting to get a bluetooth page turner for it for a while, and finally bought one. I got the iRig BlueTurn BlueTurn.jpg Super simple - two...

Arrgh - don't have the right router bits to do the neck pocket or pickup cavity. Bits ordered - now just the wait for them to arrive :roll:

Love the look of the Customshop P, but not brave enough to start the conversation about another bass at home :oops:

Re: Teaser - next project

Zombie thread! Finally made a decision about electronics and hardwear, so time to get back on the job and finish this bass. Here is the body template with the bridge and a chromed control plate. I am thinking of making the control plate out of wood so I can shape the top, so might change the shape o...

Re: Playing ampless in small venues

Thanks guys. I have managed to get the others sounding great running ampless through and I get to bring my amp to fill in the bottom end. It's been a bit of a pedal shuffling exercise for the guitar and harp player, but I think we now have everyone really happy with their sound, and I have control o...

Re: Playing ampless in small venues

I have been doing a lot of reading on this, and I think in-ears are probably the only way I could get it to work without amps. Our singer/guitar player has a bit of hearing damage sustained in his youth, so likes to have the lots of highs and no mids to hear himself. I have got a small digital mixer...
