My experience is the opposite, pigs of an amp, poor internal layout, shoddy customer service, and really hard to fix.

If budget is main factor , I suggest Peavey in the same price zone, limited tone options but reliable and fixable.

I doubt Sam would have put the amount of time he has into creating a persona/image to blow it off on selling a Bass.

Modal Warm Up

righto, here is something I have "played" probably too many times , but it is one of the exercises I use to get the fingers AND THE BRAIN at least slightly warmed up. it's more complicated to explain than play, but it's covering a fair amount of fretboard, finger per fret, knowing the name of each n...

Chuck Rainey. "Until you come back to me" by Aretha Franklin is a high water mark of Popular music. James Jamerson. biggest influence on electric bass. Great tone, fantastic ability to add melodic parts, played on cool songs. Tim Commerford. distinctive tone, enough chops to keep interest, seems to ...

Incognito may be Randy Hope-Taylor. he's currently working with some dodgy 6stringer called Jeff Beck. my favourites (big attempt to keep this short). John Entwistle. he was his own man, big chops, and played on some of the best songs I've heard. Anthony Jackson. Genius. you owe it to yourself to ch...

I'll nominate Steinberger.

the L2 is a genuine new thing for design and construction, has it's own sound, easy to look after, and plays in tune across its whole frequency/range.

Rare and pricey but highly recomended if you do find one.

Standing in the Shadows of Motown. by Alan Slutsky, some of you may be familiar with the film the Funk Brothers. I've had the book for 6 or 7 years now and it is still a great source of learning, inspiration and great sightreading primer. Slutsky also released "The Funkmasters" , the Bassists of Jam...
