Hello! I'm from Bristol in the UK. Joining this forum because I'm an insomniac looking for a forum active in the middle of the night here. I've played bass on and off all me life, but at 40, combination of plenty of time at home (2020) and changes in my personal life meant I finally started dedicating time and energy to it rather than just picking one up once every few years, and now I'm a slightly less rubbish, but still basically $#*£ bassist looking to start their first band as an older person. My gear is as pictured, my beloved Precision - Mexican, buttercream, new tort guard, vintage Neve style knobs. And the pedalboard involves signal splitting so I blend distortion with heavily EQd clean signal for my proper dirt. Also love a bit of tasteful delay and chorus. I believe in using chea pguitar pedals. Amp is a darkglass head and cab, with the VMT (almost) always on for subtle gain, and a fair bit of compression after the gain. Apropos of nothing, I'm trans and non-binary, she/they, just in case any of my queer bass playing comrades are reading. Anyway hi!
