We didn't know basses needed to be set-up. We just played them. We assumed intonation had been done at the factory. We had two cords. We used them interchangeably between speaker and instrument. We didn't carry a spare bass. If we needed to change a string we had drum solos. We thought a 15" folded horn could be used full-range. We didn't need anything over 300 Hz. anyway. We didn't know you couldn't put any speaker in any cab, so we put a JBL or an EV in everything- It didn't matter which model. In 1978 we decided Fender bass cabinets sucked (they did), and we took out the speakers and put them in TL 606 cabs. This was the single biggest improvement in bass sound since the invention of the electric bass.(not including the Fridge, which is still cool) If we did so many things wrong, how come we made the best music of the century?
