    My first thought was “probably garbage,” but then again, I listen to a lot of the same stuff that adults my age were calling “garbage”...

    Dude seems so relaxed. When I try to play “aggressive” music on drums, I get all tense and worked up and that means exhaustion sets in...

    Thank you for the context, it helps to understand the situation. Do you feel like the neck is problematic?

    If I was in the OP’s situation, I would have pointed out that the bass didn’t fit the case and then asked them to send a nice gig bag in...

    I’m going to hop in here and say that I attempted to fix a frayed corner on one of these exact same cases a while back. I used Gorilla...

    If your show is rockin’ then the club will be fine. Are you talking about covers or originals?

  9. bolophonic liked donCameron's post in the thread Single Drum WAV Out of Tune with Bass.

    I do engineering for a living. If you've got a strange resonance between the drum loop and the bass, grab a band of parametric EQ,...

  10. bolophonic liked fearceol's post in the thread How long to be thoroughly warmed up?.

  14. bolophonic liked Nev375's post in the thread How long to be thoroughly warmed up?.

    I don't need to warm up my ability to play as much as relax a bit and settle into the environment after load in/set up. For me it's...

  15. bolophonic liked Lee Moses's post in the thread How long to be thoroughly warmed up?.

    I can't conceive of anyone taking more than 2 hours to warm up. And by 6 hours, most bassists are running on fumes.
