    I was just flipping through the July issue of Bass Player Mag and noticed something weird with 4 ads:

    Gallien-Krueger on page 1: Main ad text: NO COMPROMISE

    Carvin on page 13: Main ad text: NO COMPROMISE

    Eden on page 31: Main ad text: NEVER COMPROMISE

    Ampeg on page 61: Main ad text: COMPROMISE NOTHING


    :confused:

    It seems they think we bass players are really narrow minded.

    Seems they're all compromising on the creative people they're hiring to write their ads. Now isn't it ironic.

    ........... "Don't you think?"
     
  9. I reckon they'll each compete on the level of refusal to compromise in successive ads eg.

    NEVER COMPROMISE. EVER. NO SIR. NOT ONE IOTA. WE DON'T COMPROMISE- WHY SHOULD YOU? WE'D RATHER EAT OUR AMPS THAN COMPROMISE.

    and then someone will break the cycle by saying COMPROMISE? YEAH, OKAY.

    You've compromised their collective advertising secrets! That's like bass-brand treason, but an interesting observation.

    I DON'T COMPROMISE.

    IF IT WAS EASY TO COMPROMISE, I WOULD TAKE THE HARD ROUTE AND NOT COMPROMISE.

  17. Good observation! I hate cliches. I think I'll try to dig up some myself.

    We bass players are always compromising. After all, we're team players (or should be).
