    This thread is about TECHNICAL (ly) everything... For those who share our rare blend of humor, music knowledge, movie trivia, and technical expertise... and for those who seek it.

    We goof off a lot, drink a ton of coffee, and never discuss religion or politics... but when it comes time to get help, you'll never find a more helpful, rapid response, or non-judgmental bunch.

    We share a deep love of all things music, especially the bass guitar, and most of us met in the G&L club.

    If you're in trouble, if you need help, and if you can find us!

    A little bit more about why I did this...

    Sarcasm is accepted, but not required... We tend to get revved up on caffein and let our one liner movie quotes get out of hand a bit... While most of us enjoy it, depend on it, and appreciate the humor to break up the monotony of the day... It can be overbearing at times.

    Here, anyone who's had enough can simply tune out, without fear of missing any actual or critical information, and then return whenever they choose.

    We're not rude, offensive, or insulting... and neither should you be... unless it's in a very clearly comical "sarcastic" fashion... I'm not encouraging anyone to be rude or disrespectful.

    I'm an engineer and I thought that I knew a lot... But over the last few months on Talkbass, I discovered that I had a lot more to learn about the bass, and plenty of other things too. I was impressed by the knowledge and eagerness to help of the other TB members, and although VERY different, we all shared a terrific passion for the bass guitar, music, and humanity.

    That mutual interest somehow nullified all of our differences, and we've played together in harmony ever since. They've always helped me, I've always helped them, and it's my goal that everyone on TB gets to share these benefits.

    I don't control other people or what they do, but this small group of whacko's have proven themselves to be good humans, who are concerned with their fellow TBers and what they're up to.

    Rather than to apply our areas of expertise to specific threads, I wanted it to be an all inclusive place...

    So play nice, and ask away... You wanna know what mic Cyndi Lauper used, how many watts Darth Vaders light saber was, Tubes, Solid State, Pots, Bridges, Welding, Graphics, Paint... Someone here knows all about it!

    I'd also like to introduce everyone to the bass named after my exwife. I'll show you a pic after the flames die down

    Speaking of coffee, I named my Warwick "Coffy" after the Pam Grier movie/character:

    (I don't actually have a picture of the bass handy--but it's a bubinga Corvette standard :D)

    Bro! Welcome aboard... We needed a place to stick our sarcastic, but very informative humor and specifications! Not to mention Tennessee Whiskey and Wendy O'Williams pictures... With appropriate warnings of course!
