I've had a friend "fishbulb" tell me about talkbass for a while. I never really checked it out until recently. I use to frequent HCBF, but after being here for a while I see the difference in the quality of threads, moderators, seriousness of the users towards the love of bass playing. It been a little hard seeing soo many SWR thread, but I guess they are worthy of a reputation, but I'm not sure if it was caused by the banner ads "must buy SWR, must buy SWR...." I do own a Bass 350 and had some cabs/combos etc. Why do you like TalkBass or other forums??
