Will do.

I'm not sure when we'll have another one in there, I'd love to though, it's a great venue. Usually we just do sort of...pub style venues, doing cover sets, but we had a support slot with a ska band called 360 so we got in there.

I'm definitely hoping we get another gig in there though, anything with "Jazz" in the name has me sold.

I'm not sure about other gigs in Brum right now, I know that we have potential to get in at the Adam and Eve in Digbeth, if you're familiar with that?

Anyway I'll be sure to keep you posted.

How long are your legs?!!

Sweet bass btw.
#86
they are usualy normal length but due to a space time anomaly created by our awesome music my legs looks slightly longer than usual.

nah just probably due to the camera angle or something.

if you wanna hear my beautiful bass in action:

I want a Spector Euro

I don't quite think it's a Euro. I'm almost positive it's an NS-5. Regardless, thanks for the envy . She's beautiful.

Fairly sure the only Spector models with the Zebrawood top are European.

unfluffed's is a Rebop, but Celebi's is on the previous page and definitely looks like an SSD NS-95.

The only qualm I have with that is that the upper horns are different

You're has the thinner, less bulbous horn then found on normal Spector's right (at least it looks that way from the camera angle)?

You are correct, sir.

#95
Yeah, an SSD NS-95 all the way. They're killer basses, I remember a couple years ago the Seattle GC had a used one on the floor, I probably sat there playing for almost two hours.

I know for sure I have a couple gig pictures of me and my Traben, but for some reason I can't find them at all.

Not sure why the photographer decided to send us nearly all black & white photos, but it still looks kinda cool.

Thought it'd be cool to bump up this thread.
Here's one from practice last week.

Totally jealous of your practice spot!!

It's actually a painters workshop. It's been there for ages, I never understood why they didn't finish the walls. There's a disconnected toilet just behind the wall that's behind the guitarist.

This one is from April '11. I didn't have a bass of my own yet, so I was playin' an Ibanez SR480 that belonged to one the other guys. That's my cousin Eric on drums.


There's no bass in this pic, but I wanted to show the other side of the jam room and our singer/guitarist, Jason (with my Explorer).


I'm playin' my Schecter Omen Extreme 4 in this one. That's Eric, again, on guitar in this one.


And my Fender Jazz Bass in this one. With Eric, again, playin' guitar.
#106
I chose this one because it's a good shot of the band, my rig, and my lovely face. In case you're wondering:

Bass - Ibanez EDB 500
Head - Ashdown MAG 600RM
Cabs - Old school Fender Bassman 410 and 115
Beard - only growing for about a week at time of picture

Les Claypool
Geddy Lee
Robert DeLeo
Flea

Weileder

...Coincidence? I think not.

I figure this is as good a post as any for a birthday post. I feel old looking at some of these pictures.



This was from a show two months ago. Please take the time to notice: 1) Deathcore bass face. 2) Power stance. and 3) Our (then) disabled guitarist pulling a thug life in the back.



A reunion show about a year ago. This is one of the reasons why I keep my hair long. Also, Orange half stack.



This show was about two years ago. I actually received this picture blown up and framed for my 21st birthday, two years ago today. Time flies.



And finally, one of my favorite shots from about three years ago while on a Midwest tour. I didn't know there were so many porn shops, churches, and fireworks emporiums in Missouri.

Second show at the Recher theater, our friend/roadie Sam has his big head in the way.

I salute the return of this thread! I think we've all had enough of Rays and Fenders. We need some Sandberg loving now.



Standard bass face...


We play so hard that we damage the space-time continuum.

There's something that makes a well-made bass look even better when you're actually playing it, y'know?

All bass porn is good .

Is that the a satin or gloss finish on your (blackburst?) Sandberg btw? I considered a Sandberg with a while, but ended up going against it on the basis of availability and not really being able to give one a proper go (and deciding I don't get on with active stuff).

It's the standard finish, on blueburst. It's lovely, a really really thin layer of lacquer; you can really feel the wood grain beneath your fingers. Lovely lovely lovely - also, if actives aren't your thing, you can switch it to passive mode; it's good to have options.

Honestly though, if I didn't have such insufferable GAS, and didn't like to play in different tunings for different bands, I could say that is the only bass I'd ever need.

Ah, nice... they definitely do some pretty finishes. I don't think "wood" usually works all that well on the bodies of Fender-style instruments (with, of course, the exception of sunburst) but Sandberg really make it work.

As for active EQ... well, the "options" are really the things I'm trying to avoid. I end up spending too long faffing around if I have too many different things to play with. I've gone from active basses and an 11-band graphic to passive basses and a simple bass/mid/mid-freq/treble amp, and benefiting from it. Obviously it depends on the player, but it works for me. I can now set a fairly subtle basic EQ curve on my amp to complement the guitar a bit, and can control the rest with my pick-up blend, and more importantly, my playing style. What I'm hearing on stage is different to off-stage, and I'd prefer to let the sound-guy make the judgements regarding the majority of the EQ.

It's been a long time since I was in a band--the last time I gigged was a year or so ago and that was a few shows to promote an album, not a regular band. Here are pics from two shows at the same venue (the band makeup changed for each of the promotional shows, so don't mind the magic transforming violinist).



No one has ever taken a flattering gig picture of me

It's really interesting to see the variety of our bass players here.
