    This thread only ends when we say it ends. But the She Shreds Gear Forum on Facebook is a nice place, too.

    Ahhhh how have I not heard of this till today! Anyway went over there and sent a request.

    @P7Michelle4st male entitlement gets old in pretty much all circles of life, best we can do is fight for equality when possible and as well our own spaces. As amper mentioned definitely check out she shreds if ya haven't, they're not just a fb group they're also a rad publication and community.

  7. I am always happy to chat! And as @Morrighan said, the mediocre bassist club is a really friendly place, even with dudes. :D

    This space is as friendly as we choose to make it.

    Looked at the FB group description and appears a good space. That it's on FB tips the scales back this way for me. What I find is TB is far more civil than one might expect of virtual space — especially so in the light of high emotions that any discussion may trigger. That people get quite excited about bass minutiae is also a feature of access to great depths of knowledge and experience.

    And I like to chat, too. And I really, really like La Bella Low Tension flats on my semi-hollowbody. Today's recording day YaY

    "La Bella Low Tension flats on my semi-hollow body."
    I feel ya.
    I have a set of La Bella "Deep Talkin" flats I've been saving for the day when I can finally get my hands on a Guild Starfire.

    My next will almost certainly be a Warmoth Deluxe 5J, their version of the 1998-2009 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V. It's the last version of my first bass, which was a 1992 Fender Jazz Bass Plus V Ash.

    But I want this color scheme (Sandberg California TT5):

    Just so you know, the group has not had any incidents, largely because there are no cis men in the group. Everyone there is a woman or non-binary person. We are all very supportive of each other, and the age range runs the whole gamut.

  14. Hello. Just found this thread and would like to ad that not all male bassists are sexists (myself included) and find female bassists to be anything less than musicians trying to be the best bassists they can be. We support you in this and see no reason to discourage you in our shared musical endeavor. Take care and keep up the great work.

  16. Those are some pretty basses.

    I am very much tempted by the Acinonyx, though of course I haven't actually seen one other than in photos. I'd also really like to get a nice Jazz bass that does not weigh as much as the one I have (a mid-70s beast, though very cool!). For now I mostly play a somewhat modified Mustang PJ, which is finally starting to feel like "mine."

    I don't know how all of you have occupied yourselves during the last year. I finally decided to learn some home recording. It's been extremely satisfying!

    Absolutely beautiful basses!

    Home recording made it to the top of my list too, here in the Time of The Thing That's Still Going Around. It began innocently enough with a need to record and upload videos for our Music Theory for the Bass Player cohort.

    @P7Michelle4st @amper I requested to join the she shreds gear group but it's been several days, are they just busy over there and I should be more patient or did I fall through the cracks or something? No sweat if either of you have no idea, I may have a fb friend or two I can ask.

    I'm still waiting too. I'll give it a week or so and if there is still no response I'll assume it's no longer monitored.
    Maybe we should start a fresh thread here??
