I am about to begin classes for classical guitar and my teacher is a dealer of alhambra guitars and has encouraged me to get one as my first classical.
Does anybody here know anything about these guitars? I was just wondering as I had never heard of them until he mentioned them. Just trying to get an opinion on what a good classical would be to go with.
Looks like this one will cost about $450, I'd like to stay in that price range.
I have tested the amp and really liked it. Just won't be able to test many others, due to the owner wanting me to purchase soon if I want it. That's why I'm trying to pull from the experiences of others who have tried many amps.
Was just about to buy a used Fender Bassman 250 watts 2x10 from a guy, but was wondering if it was the right choice. It normally goes for $700 but he is selling for $400 and has had it with very light use for about 4 months. It is in near-perfect condition with no problems.
I play anything from jazz to metal, but am currently involved in a folk/blues project which is what the amp will be used for.
Just trying to get a consensus of if I should go ahead and grab this amp or wait and look at other options.
If it was a double bass, then there would be a problem, I believe. Something to do with the construction of the body being shaped or added wood to aid frequencies. But since you're on about an EUB, there's obviously no such problem. You should be able to flip any EUB. So it's just a case of you finding one you like.
Well, I had seen people highly recommend the Stagg, but I don't know that you could flip that due to the attachments.
I had also heard of the Palatino being good. It looks like it would be easier flipped.
Ok, so, no real fanciness here. I want an amp at about this price range that's gig-worthy and upgradeable so that I can expand it later. I play a wide variety of styles but generally play indie and like a lot of punch (hence all the 4x10s)
Ok, so in a few weeks I plan on getting the Carvin SBR410 halfstack. The only problem I have is that I can't tell how many watts it actually comes with. I know the head says it can do 600, but I don't think the actual halfstack pushes 600 does it? Also, would I have enough headroom to expand the cabinet with another 4x10 or not?
I bought the pedal thinking that I would use it a lot, but have found little use for distortion in my bass playing. My loss is your gain, taking offers for the Bass Big Muff, it's in great condition and still comes with the original box. Used Approximately twice.
Are certain basses better for tapping than others in general?
I find that most of the music I play has a fair amount of tapping and as I was looking to upgrade basses soon, I wanted one that could handle tapping best, I need a five string, so that of course will play into it.
So I've been playing a bit longer than a year now and have found all of the sudden that when I play fast lines with root notes, the thumb on my plucking hand begins to hurt. I play with the string skipping method where you play with your thumb one string above the string your playing on. Anybody got any advice on how I can fix this pain?
I am looking for my first half stack. I play a five string with lots of use of the low B and was wondering what size speaker would compliment this. I had been looking at Carvin amps but wasn't sure if the 10"s in the SBX210
Once I get settings I like, I can definitely post a clip, it'll probably be some time tomorrow or Saturday. I'm starting to get there with it, just takes some fiddling with the bass settings themselves.
and I need help getting some settings to use on it. I know there are mixed opinions on the pedal itself, but I don't want to hear those. I just want to see if anyone knows some good settings for it. For example, a sort of Death From Above sound or a Muse sound. Any other settings are welcome, I don't expect it to sound exactly like these bands, just looking for the general idea of getting the right settings.
If there are really so many options out there for buying fretless and left handed, I wish somebody would point me in the right direction. I've searched ebay countless times, with only the Michael Kelly acoustic/electric on it.
Any idea where I can find one pretty cheap? I want one to see how I like it and the cheapest I've found thusfar is a Schecter that goes around $700, which is more than I'm willing to spend. Anybody got suggestions?
Ok, so I've played about 6 months now, and I've noticed that I almost exclusively use the "floating thumb" technique. I never conciously started doing this, it was just the way it began happening. Is this bad technique? Just looking for some guidance so as not to go astray.
Sorry to post the 10,000th thread on this, but I'm a left handed bassist looking to step up to a new bass, as I currently am stuck with a Brownsville. (cringe) It's done it's job, but it's time to move on.
So, here is my situation, I play progressive metal, Indie, Reggae and other things here and there (metal, groove, etc.) So, I'm a bit eclectic in my playing, like most people, I assume. So, I need a bass that can be pretty all over the place as well. My price range can hit about 700-800 though I'd rather stay under that. Again, I'm left handed, so I can't really go try these things out.
