LOVE it.

I mean it sounds great sure... but it's the range it has, that impresses me the most. The volume knob is great, but the tone knob like, ACTUALLY affects the tone a lot.

I know, crazy, right? But i've had basses where the tone knob is basically there for cosmetics and is always open, or else it's unusably muddy... but this one is great. With it rolled back i get a really good 'P bass with flats' thump, and with it open it gets an almost jazz-bass growly zing to it, but all the while having it's own slant on things.

It's one of those awesome setups where i can really leave my amp flat, and tweak things on the bass. It also lends itself well to being sensitive to where/how you play with a pick/fingers.

<3 it so much!!

Not much of an "action shot", you can't even see me that well, but it's a cool picture.

When we play at that particular pub we usually do split sets with a DJ, it goes down really awesome for both of us. That was one of the best shows of my life.
Covers gigs can be awesome too!

Hell yeah!

I love playing with my one DJ/electronic friend. He's kiiind of a savant with electronic (he's a high-functioning autistic) has the keyboard/kaospad/tables/other-things-that-i-can't-comprehend/things-he's-created set up. I hook up my ginormous pedalboard and play along, making ambient sounds or a really visceral bassline.

Some of the more fun stuff we've done is the closest i've played to doing live dubstep. He did some of his electronic voodoo and was able to control the modulation and wave patterns of my bass with a Wii remote he re-wired... effectively applying that dubstep dirty wobble sound to my bass playing.

Haha, people almost boo-boo'd themselved when i stomped that octave-down pedal


I can't hate on covers gigs either... my girlfriend sings in a Led Zepelin cover/tribute band

Best bass I've ever played. Of course, I've only played a couple high end basses, but that thing is NICE.

Orange half-stack goes rawr in background.

Orange Half stack indeed go rawr, but 1x15 go rawr with more balls

(however i would like to combine our rigs into 1 - 1000watts or orange bi-amped goodness)

Even more action shots from me. I'm loving this onslaught of gigs. The next three weeks have even more too.

These are from the Yardbird Jazz club in Birmingham, great venue, and even better audience response!


Pink bass distracts from the wonky tie and baggy shirt.

And to finish it off, sexy pose.
