AH SHIT!
my band have just been offered a gig in Deal with other young bands and other more experienced local bands. I think great I better get practicing switch on my bass and no sound, this is annoying since I fixed it a month ago. Although it was only a crappy beginner bass (the reason why it broke) it was a ticket to play live. I now may have to try and find some gear I can borrow.

Has anyone else had annoying moments like this?

looks like you just want a reason to say that you get play some crappy show?
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.

No I was just saying that my band just got offered a good way to get noticed on the local scene, and the universe decided to **** with me by breaking my bass.

Pretty much. It caused a small black hole. I'm scared of going back into that room.

Pretty sure you broke your bass.

The tone controls and neck pickup were broken when my mate gave it to me a couple of months ago

It's a sign, stop playing immediately!! You were clearly not born to be a musician.

Dude that's just a speed bump. You've got to get aggressive. FIND another bass.

Don't blame the univerde,
it's obvioulsy your incompetance with musical instruments that caused your fail.

I've played on a "begginer" guitar for 5+ years now,
and it's broken numerous times,
but I give a big enough shit to learn how to fix it.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Borrow one from another bassist?

I rewired my First Act entirely, with a soldering iron and a few feet of audio component cable I stole from Wal-Mart. It's not difficult. Google is your friend.

just try and borrow a bass from someone you know for a little while, i'm sure they will understand
try being a lefty and breaking an instument my old guitar's electrics all went, and i didn't have the tools at the time to fix it

and on a totally unrelated topic... you sooo look like someone i know

If you do end up fixing it instead of borrowing one:

The wires that connect your pickups, switches, and knobs, are the same thing as what you'll find when you cut open a component cable (that's what you use to connect your TV to a DVD player, for example). So find a component cable, strip it, look up a wiring diagram, and get to work.

A couple hours of cutting and soldering = reliable emergency repairs. Just be careful not to fry your electronics with the hot iron.
