Any good suggestions on how to minimize the time it takes to swap from one bass to another during a live gig? It's our last gig of the year and the band mates agree it would be fun for me to play a fretless bass during several of our covers. We've wanted to try it for a while. But I know that there is this awful dead time when the guitar player does that, drives me nuts, and I'd like to avoid doing that as much as possible. There aren't enough songs I want to play it on to go a whole set. i know I might be able to get away with doing that, but since I haven't practiced a whole set with it, you all know the risks involved. I normally am wireless, so instead of just mute/unplug/plug/go I'll have to move the transmitter over, but that should only take 30 seconds or so. I do have a small simple 4 input instrument/line level mixer box, could have the fretless plugged in directly and have the other bass receiver also plugged in to a channel, and just dial one down and the other up, but that's just one more setup item to contend with and one more piece in the signal chain to screw up. They both require not using the amp padded input, so I can't have both plugged in and just turn the volume knobs. Yes, tune both before starting the set, I got that one! Don't bother trying this? Don't fret about it and just have fun? (Arrr arrr arrr!!!)drool Other info: Small dive bar, 3 piece band and we all sing (not going to try fretless on the songs I sing, though.) Friendly capacity crowd anticipated. Thinking of doing Stray Cat Strut, Moondance, Summertime, YCAGWYW, one of my original slow blues numbers and maybe a couple of others. Thanks for any shared experience or ideas you folks can come up with, I always appreciate the help here.
