You know that I'm always ready for coffee if you visit Amsterdam.

Gibson Basses / Re: Dire financial situation at Gibson?
« on: February 12, 2018, 01:03:06 PM »
I guess brands like Fender and Gibson will never disappear. They'll just be taken over. Think about the years in the '80s when there were no US Fenders for two years... Somebody will buy Gibson, take on excisting layed off personnel, maybe not all, take over some machines, wood and buildings, maybe not all, and continue. Maybe less models, maybe no studio monitors. It will just go on and maybe people won't notice it that much...

Epiphone. It depends on how the company structure is. Uwe knows more about that. Strange: In Holland we have a different distributor for Music Man and Sterling By Music Man. Different companies, so they both chose their own distributor. Strange, cos together you are much stronger. Epiphone could be an own company with another board, ... I dunno.

The Bass Zone / Re: 20" scale second octave bass
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:03:38 AM »
That's a nice discussion. Last year I saw four different bands in a month in which the bass player played bass on keys and bass guitar. So a P or any other bass for some songs and a Moog Phatty / Novation Bass Station or other keys for other songs. I found that quite interesting so I asked a contributor to my magazine to make a synth special. He interviewed some players who used both and we made an article about it. Always nice to see other instruments used. Also think The Band and tuba:)

Interesting and this all sounds legit, although I don't understand all the economical things they say.

Ow, yes, I played the Alembic of Armand Sabal-Lecco once with those strings. But there was another tiny bass you had to play with an octaver. Let me think...

I really like it. Do you know those strange Burns and Strat? Let's google.



"Burnt Marvel - Originally to be built as a tribute to The Shadows... complete with Jet-O-Matic pick-ups etc. The original idea was scrapped and the instrument was reborn as the Burnt Marvel - name supplied by Brian's son (who was 7 years old at the time).

The guitar finally ended up with Rez-O-Jimmy pick-ups and hardware supplied very kindly by the Burns Guitar Company. The guitar caused a sensation at the '98 'Mad About Guitars' show in Birmingham. Jet Harris was there to greet the guitar. Sadly, whilst people from the company were enjoying the guitar, Jim Burns had unbeknown to all, passed away.

This guitar has a very strange, but serene aura."

And what's the name of this bass and guitar brand with the huge upper horn? Musicvox:

The Outpost Cafe / Re: So, what have you been listening to lately?

I interviewed Marko of Nightwish once. A great guy. The Buzzard and doubleneck player.
I don't know why, but the interview was like a discussion here and after 20 minutes we were talking about rock 'n roll antics. The conclusion was that -A- flatscreens don't explode that nice as an old television when you throw it out of your hotel room and - B- modern hotel rooms' lack of windows, so no way to throw televisions out. it was a great and hilarious interview after a serious bit.

Cool. It reminds me a bit of those piccolo basses.

The Bass Zone / Re: Big price increase on D'addario strings
« on: February 09, 2018, 02:23:31 AM »
In Europe d'Addario stops with distributors and go direct. That could be good for the prices.

And I'm curious if Fender will increase prices too, because their strings are made by d'Addario.

They might do a lawsuit:)

I'm smiling, reading and seeing this! :D
