  1. Hi All,

    I am new to the forum, but I can see already that this is a great group of people and players.

    Some background about me. I am (yikes) 53 years old now, but feel younger. I have had fairly extensive musical training in my life, but I am not a professional musician.

    Started playing bass in 1970, spent my life savings in 1973 on a special-order Fender Precision Bass, which I still have. Initially self taught, watching carefully the players I considered to be exceptional musicians. (Lee Sklar, Jim Fielder, Ray Brown - old school guys nowadays, I guess).

    Played "professionally" in disco cover bands in late '70's. Played in a gospel band, made a couple of "recordings". (Vinyl.)

    I have played my Fender Bass practically forever, but very recently decided to aquire a 5-string Dingwall AB2. I love this bass. My current rig is an EA iAmp Pro 1200 with Bergantino AE 212 cabinets. I think it is an awesome setup and would be interested in hearing other's expereince and opinions about this setup.

    Looking forward to trading thoughts...
