    Maybe I am dating myself or having a bout of nostalgia but I really miss the huge shootouts that used to be posted here. To be fair, I must give credit to Tom Bowlus for conducting these extravagant tests.
    I still remember vividly his 112 or 210 shootouts that would often incorporate 10 cabs or so.

    I understand this might not be a format that is appropriate for the amazing Bass Gear Magazine but I still miss getting that kind of 360 view of what's available for a category of product.

    Am I the only one missing these mega shootouts?

    Yeah, those were fun, for sure! I do have to admit that working on Bass Gear Magazine has kind of absorbed a lot of my time, and also made me more detail oriented, but I miss doing those, as well.

    I also miss the annual Bowlus Bass Borg GTG I used to have in my basement. However, I am bringing it back! Or something like it. I helped arranged to have David Ellefson (Megadeth) come speak to the music students at our local college, and the plan is to have a Bass Borg GTG at the same time (at the college). In future years, this will hopefully be a full-fledged music/gear expo, but this year should be fun, as well. It will take place on Friday, April 15th, and I'm hoping to have a bunch of basses and rigs for folks to check out.
