Rumble 100 update

I'm still having trouble getting a good, dependable setting on my big band gig. I've given up the 10- Band equalizer and am just using the amp itself. I'm still not sure how to use the special...

New Amp.

Well, its over. My GK 200ma amp bit the dust. I tried to prolong its life but, as the tech guy said, it is fried.
Now good news. I bought a new Fender Rumble 100 combo for $299. It's been great with...

Logged out

Yes. Sorry for getting annoyed. Maybe In the future I'll try to write it, I don't know where? and try to cut and paste or copy and paste?

Lost post!

I just spent an hour writing a story of my first Ampeg B-15 and Fender Jazz bass which I bought in 1969 and still use.
Unfortunately, when I clicked "send" it told me I was no longer logged in, and...

Ken, what do you use to mount them. Rawhide lacing? Does it help to wet the rawhide to let it shrink more tightly?

Silver

Ken,
Too bad there isn't a "like" button on your site. I don't want to knock you out of the queue, but I wanted you to know that I appreciated your post on Horace Silver. He was a great one! I...

Ken,

That bass looks just like my bass to my untrained eye. Right down to the purfling design on the button. Must be the same maker? I'll have to figure out how to post pics. Mine has a partial...

I worked the Ali Baba several times with Bobby Cole. If you recall, you did me a favor by doing a last minute sub for me with Bobby on May 14, 1977 at the "Prive", for $50! Big bucks :) My car broke...

Congratulations, Ken. You've come along way, baby, as the ad used to say.
But don't you still have a spot of nostalgia for those long, steady gigs in the NYC clubs in the 60s and 70s, especially...

Bow wood

:confused:

I assume that you meant definitely wasn't the wood. Which brings me to the question: What kind of wood is my bow made out of?
I bought it (my one and only bow) in 1963 in...

We live in, as a friend of mine often says, an "all sizzle and no steak age."

Re Amanda Ruzza videos.

You can say that again, Ken. I damn near ruined the bone/plastic (?) winding on my bow with one of those from Golihur. It was so tight that the winding started to unravel. I have blue painter's tape...
