Hey r/bass, I've been inspired by Adam Neely's videos (hope that doesn't make me any enemies!) and started a new youtube channel. This is my 4th video and probably most relevant to bass players. https://youtu.be/kBNvPb331SQ Would love to hear any thoughts and whether you like what I do. Enjoy! David
Has anyone ever put a 145 or 150 tuned to B, or Bb, or A? (question is flexible there, since i know its unlikely that most have tried a gauge that heavy while still tuned to B…however its possible that some have)
If youve tried a 145 or 150 but only tuned to A, a description of how the tension felt would be helpful still, like could it have been even more tension while still being bearable, or was it really tight, etc…
Was just reading about balanced/progressive tension here…https://www.talkingbass.net/flappy-b-strings-tight-d-strings-and-the-switch-to-progressive-tension/
And the guy suggested a 145 for a string, still tuned to B, to match the tension of the E 105. Is that cool? What about a 150?
155 would be too much for a A#? This is all 34" scale speaking.
Guys, I'm super excited about what's been happening in my life lately. I'm living my dream, playing as my main job and I just got very good news. For personal reasons, I just got a lot of money to spend freely in what I want. Like a lot. I surely will keep some of it, but I have decided to give me a early Xmas gift! So, what would you do in my situation, with let's say, 10k to spend in whatever you want (bass related obviously) and with your main instrument being a Fender standard MIJ Precision and a fender rumble 500 combo?
I've been thinking about lot of stuff… A rickenbacker, a warwick GPS, a Spector Euro… Maybe get an amp an a cabinet (but not too heavy), a lot of pedals… The possibilities are endless!
I'm so happy and grateful to be in this situation, and I don't want to offend anyone with this post. I just want to know what would you do in the situation I'm describing, because the sky is the limit! Thank you so much for reading, I wait for your answers guys!
Found a local listing for a "Squier bass", with the attached photos clearly showing the Fender logo on the headstock.
I'm no expert, but I thought all Squier basses had the Squier logo and aren't made in the US. Any chance this is a legitimate Fender?
