    You remember how, in the Matrix, Neo was able to learn Kung Fu by a simple upload program? I'd like that for bass.

    A 5 string Kubicki Exfactor (or a 5 string factor) either one would be amazing. As far as I know, only 2 five string Kubicki Factors were ever made. (I’m aware of the key factor 5’s)

    Undying strings that never lose their zing. I'm talking about fresh, steel-nickel alloy round wound thingy. Already "dead" strings out of the box of course feel like they last longer. Like some flats of some brands.
    A drop of dish washer and 10 minute ultrasonic cleaner works quite well but unfortunately it's not just about oil and gunk. The metal gets "tired" and wishes to retire after several surgeries. That sounds familiar huh...

    A 10lb 1x10 cabinet that sounds like an Aguilar 4x12 (or your favorite fridge) and a 10lb, 600 watt tube amp to drive it.

    And I almost forgot; a 4lb MM Stingray V.

    Well I'm glad the shipping is free after the gizmo costs $1,048 because I'll be totally tapped out.

    A powered, bass-specific wedge-shaped speaker that could be placed on the floor in traditional monitor wedge position and has a cabinet shape that allows two of them to be stacked vertically behind me in traditional bass amp position.

    Some gigs. Oh, and a winning lottery ticket
  8. I didn’t say they were inexpensive- but they’re good. I’ve used them since the 70’s. Can’t beat a Peterson Strobo Tuner! Seriously.
    Otherwise, just buy the Peterson Strobo Stomp HD pedal. It will work fine for bass including 5 & 6 string.

    How about a freaking vaccine for Covid-19 so we can get our lives back and start playing gigs again?

    It takes a bit of fiddlin' but my SansAmp Bass Driver DI does a decent SVT impersonation through my Fender Rumble 100 and Acoustic B50C.

    I agree. I could get by very easily with one the handles the low E.

    A web forum that makes me a better bassist and gets me more gigs instead of just making me want more instruments and gear:roflmao:

    Da U P eh!
    I would like glasses.

    The kind that have a microphone built into a computer that instantly recognizes what song is being played, in what key, and projects the notes hologram style.

    Kinda like bass karaoke...

    I want a bass that has the bridge area extend a little further out from the bottom of the body. I like longer scale basses, but I wear my basses kind of high and don’t like having an extra long reach. Just move the bridge further back and problem solved!
