    Howdy... First day on the forum and I can say that I'm happy to be here. Little history.... My first name is Mike. I've been playing bass now for 16 years. I currently own a Cort Curbow 5-String fretless, Yamaha RBX760A (great slapper) and a Warwick Thumb 5 bolt on. I play through a Hartke 4000 with a 410XL cabinet. Effects: Digitech BP8 Valve, and a little Zoom box. I don't know what took so long to find my way here but here I am and thanks for having me aboard!

    OH CRAP!!! That's one aspect the profiles don't indicate.

    Hope your kids are like I was when I was struggling bassist trying to meet the payments on my gear -
