Well; now that the Christbass...er, I mean Christmas season is upon us, what are your bass desires for this year? Having just played a Yamaha BB1025X and found it to be remarkably good, I have to put that on the top of the list. That and an EBS Fafner II amplifier would make the season for me.

How about the rest of you?

I've pretty much beat GAS, fortunately. I might pick up something with a Kahler though, just something I wanted as a kid but never had an opportunity to pick up

My next bass GAS candidate is a MIA all black maple necked Precision. But at this point, I really need a pickup for my upright as well, or a new hardcase for my MIA Jazz.
#4
Realistically I think I might treat myself to a pair of EMG 35DC's. All other GAS money is hopefully going into some New Year's ink.

If SantaBass were to show up at my apartment with a bag of GAS-induced goodies though, I'd be really keen on a Modulus BassStar neck, a Source Audio Bass Envelope Filter, an EBS Multicomp, and an original Steinberger L1.

^ I just recently upgrade from my mxr envelope to the source audio envelope and man its a great pedal. I cant say enough about how nice it is. All the preset fuctions and the ability to shape them how you want it is awsome.
#6
GAS wise for me it's just this.

Ibanez BTB776
Bartolini P2 Set
Mike Pope Flexcore Preamp
Delano PC2HE/M2 and JC4HE/M2
EMG PAX and JAX Set
EMG BQC System

That isn't clearly happening so I reserve myself to couple of pack of DR Fat Beams and Rotosound 77's.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Well, I just got a new amp (70's 500w Dynacord) so that's fine now, but still on my GAS list:

Ibanez Ergodyne EDC700


Ibanez SGBE110VS


Line6 UX2

Telefunken TD20 mic (60's mic that sounds heavenly in front of my amp, just need to buy my own now.)

Some kind of Fender/Squier VM bass (there's just some tones that I can't seem to get out of my 375 that I can nail from a VM, although the reverse is also true).
A cheap project bass for me to mess with
An SM57/58 (I need 1 mic to do a million things, and those fit the bill perfectly)
A Scarlette 2i4
A cheap guitar

I've recently discovered the Epiphone Zenith and though I haven't located one to try yet I love the sound of it based on Youtube video reviews I've seen. I think right now I'd lean toward one of those, probably in the darker natural finish, or some parts for the Stingray clone I'm building. And I could do with a new strap.

Has anyone here played a Zenith btw?

Realistically either a Dunlop Bass Wah, an MXR Deluxe Bass Fuzz, some EMG JVX pick-ups to try in my Jazz or some professionally moulded ear plugs.

What I'd really like though is one of the GK MB Fusion 800 amps I've been wanting for a while...

I don't have any real GAS at the moment, a Star Bass would be nice but I'm happy with my three basses at the moment so and my MarkBass rig gets the job done so meh.

What I would like is some more wood, been trying to find a decent source of Bubinga and Afzelia to no avail.

Anything with six strings on it.

You know what would be really sweet? Having a beautiful bird inlaid around the first fret, taking a majestic dump with airborne droppings around the 5th, 7th, 9th frets and so on, with a graceful impact around the 22nd-24th.

a nice fretless and tech music school to say yes

I'd say something like this:

Ibanez BTB675

and something like this:

I don't see it happening, though

Lucky enough to have one of these bad boys with some lush valves, as I traded my Blowtorch with Jon for his...sounds lush through my Trace Elliot, a little cleaner with my passive basses than the active Sandberg circuit, but for full on stoner rawr, combined with the VT pedal I have it's pretty damn awesome!!

Tbh, all I want is a shed ton of new strings, pref roto 66's for the 'berg, some piccolo's for the jag, and some nice flats for the mustang...I'd also like to get them all set up pro style, and having room for the Trace would be great because I'm reduced to playing thru my sh*tty no name practice amp that I've owned since I was fifteen...

On a GAS front but not involving basses,a nice fender twin or some other lush little valve amp for my 6 string that I couls stick my Jeklly and Hyde in front of would be nice please Mr Santa!!

Have you tried one yet? I've always found the digital power-amped MarkBass stuff to sound a bit sterile and lifeless.

I must agree...the Markbass stuff is light, and so is the sound...thin, too.

Hasn't been a good bass amp since Acoustic research went under, the new company with the $5K 360 might have a good amp. but where are they to TRY?
#27
I'd love to get a six string bass... any, as long as it has some semblace of quality (and narrow string spacing), i'd be happy!

But realistically i can expect a set of strings.

Maybe next year...

My Barefaced Super Twelve T/V being finished before Christmas would be nice too.

Probably just some strings and maybe a cable and a strap as well. Perhaps someday I'll convince my family to buy me a Warwick.

Those MarkBasses are so cute. I can throw it in my backpack or leave it in my car and I'll always be ready. It sounded fine with my 215 with EVM15L and EVM15B.

That's why I love mine. On top of my 2x10 its a great little apartment amp, but if I want to jam I can slip it in a backpack, grab my bass and go. Just plop it on another cab and its good to go.

Bass-Santa really should just drop $200 or so down my chimney so I can start a project.

How much are these beauties?


As for what I want, bass wise I just want this nice little Gallien Kruger combo amp. 200 watts with a 15inch speaker, MMB15 or some model name like that. Would be pretty nice for a first bass amp.

I also want a drum set. Having hard time deciding between acoustic and electric. but literally those 2 things, and Im gooood.

Those are California VM's, Sandberg's price list puts the base price at 1338 Euros (and that's for a 4 string before any options). Chicago Music Exchange is a US dealer and has a 5 string VM listed for $2245.
