    This is my old Meisel ply that I sold when I got the LaScala. I played it a bit last night; it was newly set up and was wearing Obligatos. I had a tinge of seller's remorse, but you can't keep all of them. Great f***in' bass, though.

    Whoops, that might be a bad link, try this:

    Sorry for pushing the limits of Spammishness, but we did a show last night that was videotaped by Bravo Network, for a production called "Djangomania", which will apparently air in December. If you insist on seeing what I look like during battle, here's your chance. Judging by the cameraman's techiques, you should be able to count my nose hairs.

    Wil...I've been trying to get my wife to let me part with the last vestiges of hair on my head, and go with your current route, but she doesn't seem to like the idea. My kids, on the other hand, say "Yeah Dad....shave it!". I just am attracted to the low-maintenance approach.

    I used to have a buzz cut and an honest-to-god Fu Manchu moustache back in th early 80-s. I got a lot of work in punk bands....

    Also I would just like to add that my picture was taken 5 minutes before I posted it. :bag:

    Aaron...thanks for the compliment. My dad is a killer drummer, too. The more I sound or act like him, the better off I am.

    Rumzini...you could make a nice dent in your G.A.S. list if you didn't spend all your money on topshelf motorcycles :smug:
    Ahhh... I'm just jealous.

    HA HA HA HA!!! I didn't even realize this was the DB forum!!! I can however strap my backpack to the gas tank and I went to Lansing, MI to Elderly to pick up my old Hartke 4000 bass head. They thought I was nuts. I've also brought home a case of beer, burgers and fries...you name it. People love it when you go through the drive thru with it.

    If this guy isn't pianist David Benoit's brother, I'll eat my G-string.

    Yup, he's Dave's younger bro, Phil. Dave, by the way, makes a killer martini. That's important.
     
  17. Speaking of Benoit...you guys remember Kim Stone? He was over here yesterday picking up my bass trunk...renting it for some gigs with Benoit and some of those other...whatever you call that **** they play. Sorry.
    Anyway Kim played a little on this wonderful Morelli i'm selling and just wanted to say that he's sounding pretty damn good and will be joining us here at TBDB soon.

    Let me see if I have this straight: you can work his mouth and facial expressions using the standard controls, but you have to give him a Dutch beer first?

    Do the MacArthur people know about this?
