My mom's in Baltimore, and I had two shows this weekend, so no going down there for today, therefore I did the flowers route and a phone call. My mom's awesome. The same can be said for my newly - acquired Roscoe 5. I did have no sound during our OPENING song last night (bad di box/cable), but after that, quite possibly the best and most jaw-dropping tone I've ever had. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, that the low end on this bass is FRIGHTENING.
