UK TB GTG?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Nickthebassist, Mar 11, 2005.


  1. How cool would it be to have a UK TB get together? I think we should! Anyone up for it?
     
  2. Of course - my place for a cuppa tea and some double-thumping lessons? I'll trade anyone for some advanced jazz theory lessons...
     
  3. Heh, I am planning to come to London to go the Bass Gallery and Bass Centre soon......
     
  4. Cool - I was at the Gallery yesterday - I was giving the most excellent Alex (the guy who runs the sop) a few tips on DT-ing too - he's a top man and I love that shop - they have some killing Epiphani combos in at the moment - oh, and a few nice basses too ;)
     
  5. Sorry Nick - looks like it's just you and me - at least the round's will cheaper!

    I'm thinking of getting down to London sometime, not sure where to head to yet!

    Just for your information.
     
  8. Ok so that's a few people so far. I'd quite like to meet some of you!

    I'd be up for a meetup.

    The trouble is deciding (1) where we can meet; (2) what we bring; (3) what we do once we meet.

    Some UK TBers met a year or two ago for a pizza before going to see Michael Manring and Steve Lawson play at The Bass Centre. Doing something like that makes more sense to me - I doubt anyone has the space at home to accomodate a bunch of strangers with their bass gear!
     
  10. Maybe we can take over a bass shop for a day? Lol.

    Cetera said he wanted to meet you too Nick.
     
  13. I'd like to meet him too. I think if some of you met me, you may change your view of me (I hope).

    Have you seen Alex's personal Sei? Lovely bass... 4-string, "original" body shape, pencil-thin neck, white LEDs, custom Kent Armstrongs, U-Retro...
