Not solderless, but not that hard to do.
Thats an option for sure. I've had a P with the GZR and a Jazz with the Model J's in the past and loved both so I'm sure the pairing is probably excellent.
Thanks for the input!

So I was having a high pitched hum when I had the tone knob turned up. I finally got around to opening up the back to look at the solder connections. I found two spots that looked at bit sketchy. I re-soldered the two spots and the hum is almost gone. It is still slightly there, but greatly reduced to the point that it is now a non issue.. I guess it was 5 minutes until quiting time in Korea when mine was soldered up..
Wow - new amp day. Berg B Amp.
She sounds pretty great with the Single 12" Schroeder and the Bahama Blue NS4.
May be the new live amp, and the Genzler MG800 could go to rehearsal.
If anyone out there in the Club is looking, I'm likely going to be moving my Forte 4 soon. Aggie Super Singles with the Darkglass ToneCapsule. She's a beast for sure. Club discount applies, naturally.

Hi everyone. Today is the one year anniversary of my bilateral lung transplant! Overall, I'm doing well...no rejection, and I don't need any supplemental oxygen. I'm still having an issue with fluid accumulation around my heart and lungs though, and the Transplant team is trying to sort that out. Lots of meds for the rest of my life, but I have a much better chance at a longer life than with my native lungs that were severely damaged by Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. My hands are almost recovered, but still some numbness, tingling, and reduced strength and range of motion. But I can PLAY! I'm very blessed and very fortunate to have been healthy enough to qualify for a transplant. Please consider signing up to be an organ donor if you are not one already. You will save many lives. Thank you,
Did you have to order a shorter Model J or did the standard size fit ?
It’s their standard size as I know. The bass came to me equipped with them already.
@johndb I just learned my mother had been diagnosed with the same.
So good to hear this
Obviously, I can't "like " this post. IPF is relatively rare, and doesn't get much attention compared to something much more prevalent like cancer and heart disease. It mostly affects older people (65 and up) but was diagnosed at age 51. Unfortunately, a lot of the people affected don't qualify for transplant due to other medical problems. I'm one of the lucky ones who did. My thoughts and prayers for your mother. Also unfortunately, there are rare familial genetic issues that can increase the chance of it being passed down to children. This is not common, but might be something to keep an eye on and consult with your doctor as well.
Thanks, Gary! I'm trying not to let anything slow me down too much, but I have to be extra careful about germs because of all the immunosuppressants I'm on. I'm still trying to avoid large crowds (no NAMM or big events for a while), upped my safe food handling game, and sanitize and wash constantly. Still somehow I just ended up with C-Diff in the last month or so
Glad to hear your doing okay, overall. I've been an organ donor for quite a few years now. If any of my organs are usable when my time comes, I would like to think that I could help give someone else a second chance.
John, this is fantastic news to hear my friend! Will raise a glass in your honor this evening, and wishing you many healthy years to come!!!
Thanks. Rob! Definitely have a drink for me. I'm not doing any alcohol because of all the meds I'm taking. A small price to pay, for sure
John. So happy for you. Keep getting stronger and heal up Amigo. Blessings.
I can relate - I was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome 9 years ago, a rare genetic condition (also hereditary) that can affect the heart, lungs and eyes, and found out when I had to get emergency open heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm (which could have killed me in a few months time had I not gone for a cardio checkup). This was around the time I decided, after an 8 year music break, to pick up bass full time. (Had been playing guitar since age 16, picked up a bass few years later for recording but wasn't dedicated to it). Surgery recovery was a bitch, not to mention the psychological issues that come with knowing how fragile I was (and how fragile life could be at any moment - a year after surgery, I had to get a pacemaker implanted).
An incredibly stressful and ugly separation and divorce followed 2 years after my surgery. Since then the relationship with my oldest daughter has crumbled, my ex-wife passed away after a one-year battle with cancer, leaving me a full time dad of my youngest daughter who has had to deal with her own anxieties, not to mention the pain of losing her mom.
Sorry for the long post, don't mean to write my auto-biography - my point being that, even after all this, I am so glad be alive because there is joy to be had in so many things, even the little things. And playing bass the last year or so (finally, after a period of relative calm in my life) and becoming addicted to Spector basses in particular, has brought me a lot of joy.
So, Johndb, glad you got your transplant and are able to play. Keep healing!
And TolerancEJ, sorry to hear about your mom - I wish her (and your family) lots of luck.
