Hi, I'm bluesbassman and I'd like to invite all newcomers to come visit The Lounge.

Fun place to chat, joke, and decompress. Lots of music, pictures, stories. 'Course oldtimers are welcome too.

Welcome to DU!

7. Yeah well, the Code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules.

Aaargh Matey!

4. thank you lounge folks!

I'd like to thank you and everyone in the lounge. You've all been friendly. I'm interested in politics and love reading here. I read here a few years before joining.

I enjoy posting in the lounge. It's a nice a place to unwind, relax and have fun. So many witty minds!

17. Hey Bluesbassman! I got a few questions for you.

1. What's on your turntable/CD player right now?

2. What basses do you own?

3. What is your bass rig setup?

Thanks

18. Hey boguspotus! LOL, I think just may win the longest lurker award!

Glad to see you're still here.

In answer to your questions:

1) Jimmy Thackery & the Drivers - Empty Arms Motel, Released in 1992

2) '95 Fender P-Bass Deluxe, '65 Fender Jazz Bass copy (built myself from Fender and aftermarket parts) these two are my main gigging instruments. I also own an Epiphone Les Paul bass, an Ibanez SR800, and a Fender Squire 5 string P-Bass.

3) Currently playing through a Line 6 LowDown HD750 on top of two LowDown 4x10 cabinets.

You a musician?

21. Awesome!

Thanks for the video - you guys sound excellent. Yep, at this point in my life, having fun playing music is a big priority.
And I know what you mean about the weight of the Ampegs - they weigh a ton. I forgot to mention that I have a little 2x10 Ampeg cabinet. In the last band I was in I just used that (with a mic on it), and the newer V4-B that weighed about 30 lbs. less than the one from the 70's.
Your bass sounds great - Line 6 makes good stuff. And I don't think you could ever go wrong with Eden too. Do you guys have other stuff on YouTube? I'll have to check it out.
