Playing a bass that just "looks" wrong
Jul 23, 2014 - 10:49 PM - by Mudcat35
Mudcat35's Avatar The other night, I'm playing with my country band and I took my Conklin Groove Tools fiver and my ol' trusty P-bass. For any country band, the P just LOOKS right. The Conklin, not so much; it has a giant schnozz on it and is not typically seen in country applications.

I played the Conklin in the first set and the P in the second. From where I was standing, the P sounded GREAT. The Conklin sounded good, too, but the P just had this sort of warm fullness that was really cool. I guess that's what they're all about, but I digress...

After the second set, I asked my wife how the bass tone was out front. She's seen plenty of gigs and is a good reference point for my tone, and she said "good, but the Conklin really cut through the mix better". So, I'm finding out that the Conklin is a better match for this band, which is not what I expected. I went with it the third set as well.

Do any of you out there really care how your bass looks in the context of the band? I have to say I really don't, being kind of anti-social anyway, but I'm interested in hearing opinions.

What's for dinner?
Sep 12, 2011 - 6:51 PM - by VikingWarlord
VikingWarlord's Avatar I'm curious to see how other people eat, especially since we've got both a big group of foodies and people working to clean up their diets.

My dinner consisted of:

Big garden salad
Turkey meatloaf
Acorn squash with butter and brown sugar

Dessert is a Virgil's Cream Soda

Right now, I think tomorrow will be another big salad, broiled salmon, and steamed broccoli with fruit salad, cottage cheese, and honey for dessert.

What about the rest of you? How far ahead do you plan your meals, if you do at all?
