  4. It absolutely warms my heart to see how much this has grown since I started this 10 years ago.

    A lot changes over the course of a decade. I have since moved to SC, bought a house, matured a lot, started playing bass at church a few years back and played with a few different bands.

    It’s funny where life takes you. I look back at some of the discussions I’ve created on TB as a young teen who just got started with bass and making music. Definitely face-palmed at a few of them… But hey we all grow up at some point right?

    Anyways, I got a lot to catch up on this discussion board and so many bassists to check out with different music you’ve all been making.

    I visited Erie last week and went to World of Music for the first time in about 25 years.

    Good news is they are still there. Bad news is the prices were pretty high, IMO.
    For a sample of interesting bass gear (to me at least) they had the following, but I thought the prices were up there:
    Used G&L SB-2 Tribute: $499
    Used G&L SB-1 USA: $999
    Used 70s Ampeg B-15 (blue/silver grill cloth version): $1,999

    I hope they do well as they are, seemingly, the only independent music store in Erie anymore, but with prices at this level, it will be tough to compete with Internet stores.

    Hey, those are some pretty good specimens! The problem I find in my area with brick-and-mortar is limited selection. Even the massive House of Guitars in Rochester (NY) had mostly Rumbles and Fender basses to try. I’ve had a few sour grapes with buying online recently, and don’t mind paying the premium to get to try stuff first.

    I just bought a (guitar) practice amp at my local store and they had it priced $10 higher new than other online stores. I coulda bought one used online and saved like 40%… but was happy to support them. I payed them simply for being open for me to go try it out first. Hard for any business to survive brick and mortar these days.

    Glad to see local gigs coming back. I hope Delta doesn't put us back in lockdown.

    First show for me that's not in someone's back yard since March 2020 is going down this weekend in Lebanon. I'm pretty fired up to get back on stage.

    Recently went to see the Brubeck Brothers Quartet this past Saturday in Reading, PA for the Berks Jazz Fest. Had front and center seats.
    Chris Brubeck was playing his Fretless Ric 4001 with tapes. He played mostly above the last 2 frets and other times over the bridge pickup. I've never ever heard an electric bass get that close to an upright sound (and I've been to a lot of jazz concerts).

    I have a much better appreciation of his playing AND the sound that a Rickenbacker 4001 fretless came make. It was an awesome show.

  16. Would you please tell your booking agent that Cumberland and perry counties exist
