    An unclean (rings bell) break also makes it easier to align everything.

    She’s so......and the THUNDERBIRD ain’t bad either. There’s a great PJ Harvey vid from there that was released this week too.

    I have three cheapo Monoprice pedal tuners in the three practice areas set up in my house. Not sure how accurate they are, but they seem consistent from tuner to tuner.

    was it not on a stand? Or is Roomba an insensitive lout?

    I bet this sells a lot of Roombas!

    warranty complaint: My cat does not like this device; it must be defective. Please send another.

    I was first drawn to this series featuring Radiohead - love seeing real-time performances of favorite recordings!

    i should also note that tuned to pitch with this pedal, my bass is in perfect tune with the keys (at pitch), other than way up the neck on the E and A.
    I like the Pitch Black.

    I guess a few will be released at a time. The Sonic Youth is great. I wish they’d finally get back together, although Kim is doing just fine with other projects.

    I bet you’ve got a big grin going on behind the mask. But I would love to see the Casady in action.

    Speaking of Casady, I worked on White Rabbit today. The notes aren’t difficult, but it is a great exercise for muting and getting the rhythm right.

    I'm not sure why the there is a second bass player... I can't really hear how his presence is necessary to the mix.

    I love my ‘Casady bass, don’t get me wrong...but the VP works much better with my Rat pedal and the overdrive on my amp...and can take more of a pounding. (I try to be gentle, but can’t just stand in one place and play like a statue)

  19. I liked this one (review).*


    And was the impetus for me to think about the performance of my tuners.


    * It seems that many electronic tuners have some difficulty with bass frequencies. Although all will (begrudgingly) do it, getting them to read and getting to stable tuning takes longer.
