    Re: People who have bad rhythm and don't admit it

    I re read the OP and it makes me wonder as I don't see where she heard them directly. It seems she is going off what her friend said. I've been on both sides of the problem. Singers who don't play an...

    Re: anodize or powder coat talipiece (?)

    Sorry Bob, but I take issue with that statement. That is NOT the expensive part. That totally disregards the amount of labor to prep, the cost of the shop, thousands of $$$ for the gun,spray booth,...

    Re: anodize or powder coat talipiece (?)

    You should price those ovens large enough to do something like your bass! Not to mention the bill to fire that thing up as the bigger the stove the longer you have to let it preheat until it...

    Re: anodize or powder coat talipiece (?)

    I started out with one the cheap Eastman powdercoat guns. While it did the job, not until I finally could afford a pro rig that was $900+ did I realize the difference. The cheap gun because of the...

    Re: Carbon Fiber?

    I got to play a Mix A5 in Ken Cartwrights shop years ago and was at first underwhelmed by the sound. But not the feel. The neck and action were what I was used to so I kept playing and by the end of...

    Re: anodize or powder coat talipiece (?)

    A typical powdercoat is 2mil thick if they know what they are doing. That's the same thickness as a garbage bag so there is no added bulk. There are literally hundreds of different powders and colors...

    Re: Touchmix vs. Line 6 md20

    My Line6 has been a huge leap forward from the analog boards I was used to. It's approach is very unique which is not at all like any board I've ever seen or heard of. To some it might seem like a...

    I could be wrong, but I don't see much of a gain with the Berhinger mixer, pun intended. A lot of times stage craft is a wish more than any possible reality. Most places around here are just barely...

    I so hope that remains true for DH. And I fervently hope all this prognostication has not jinxed him. There have been others who thought that they were going retire there too.
