Just wanted to say hello to the community. I monitored the forum a bit a few years ago but lost track. I'm home this week from work, and I'm in the forum again. I'd like to try to hang out permanently. I'm a bassic bass player in NY, gigging about twice a month in a contemporary rock cover band. I use some pretty low end equipment to get the job done that I'll describe sometime. Anyway, hi and Happy New Year.
