hi kids. i read a comment on another thread that suggested that we as bassists of greater years were old sticks in the mud. i took exception as i believe we have generaly embraced the new small lightweight gear that is on sale these days. of coarse when the years go past the new stuff get very attractive for the back. do you think the new stuff delivers the performance of the gear we started off using in the 60s and 70s? or are we making tone compromises for the sake of weight/ size.bottom line does the new gear have MOJO even without the smell of cooking tubes and caps. i myself love my GK MB FUSION 500 that i use with heavy cabs( i know that light and heavy is a contradiction but we are gemini) so waddya think, new stuff with mojo or did we leave that behind? pretend you dont have to carry your own gear. new or old?
