Free bass to someone deserving!
I'm a little on the fence with this one but here goes...
This is my first bass. I have owned it since around 2003. This is a great bass; it survived the heat of an aluminum building over a summer when I had west nile virus (lead singer put it in storage to protect it) while a US Fender did not do so well. The bass has scratches, dings, and wear. Neck is uber stable. It could use some new pots/jack etc. I'm a little on the fence with this one...
However; it sits in the corner unplayed. I don't play bass much at all these days and there is a part of me that thinks there is a kid somewhere out there that needs to play (much like I did). So I am considering parting with my black beauty for the right kid to start their music journey. If you know someone who deserves this, pm me and lets talk.
The bass is a Peavey Millennium BXP (passive version).
I can upload pics tonight.

Another good option is check around for local youth centers. Great places for this!

very kind of you MAD PLAYA. I'm volunteering for a kids' music clinic on 1/18/14; there may be a bassist among them.

Awesome! I could chip in for some of the shipping cost.:bassist::bassist:

I'll be donating my upright and an old beater P bass next week as well, always nice to see people paying it forward :bassist:

donate it to a local youth group or school in your area...
it will be hooked up with a budding bass player this way....

If there is any shipping expense involved, pls PM me and I will either PayPal you the entire amount or split it with anyone else willing to contribute toward defraying it.
|camardelle ||01-10-2014 06:59 PM |
I am willing to help facilitate the transfer finically as well. Just let me know where to contribute to the fund. Good for you MBP!

Rad. Keep the good vibes going. There's lots of folks out there from music teachers and students to hospital rehab programs that can use the things we aren't. Good deal!

I'm not worthy!
It's good to see people giving back what they love...
|faulknersj ||01-11-2014 05:02 PM |
That is really super cool of you!! I am inspired by this kind act of generosity!!!
|telefunkinu-47 ||01-11-2014 05:36 PM |
I second faulknersj's "super cool of you"!

BUMP for a great guy and a great thing to do. Last year I was a part of a bass that was given to a special kid. I no longer teach at that school, but I know Tyrek is still enjoying his bass! Props to recreating that special gift for someone else!
