You know how it works by now: No cure, causes mental derangment, HIGHLY contagous :D

So what's YOUR gas right now?

 

I'll start: Ive been dreaming of a Rob allen mb2 with spalt top, f hole, and all the usual fixins'.

 

And in the long run, i really oughtta' get a pog and boss ls2 soon..but I'm in "save ur dang' money" mode right now.

No cure, but temporary relief...

 

Picked up a MIDI drum set for really reasonable (Yami 8 piece, extra supports, DTXpress MIDI interface) and we needed to buy a throne. So we go to Music Machine to buy one and there's a '51 replica Fender hanging on the wall, almost half off.

 

After my girlfriend told me several times to get it, I caved. Asked the clerk if I whined would he throw in a gig bag. So, I get a brand new 2004 MIJ Classic Reissue '51 P and a Fender delux gig bag for about 60% of list. Oh, and we did buy a Pearl throne for the drum set.

*sigh* My GAS was at an all time low, but then TylerLovesAva just HAD to mention the Fender Roscoe Beck Bass V and now I really really really want one ...

 

That said, I am still negotiating with D\'Alegria about a 5 string Dart. Oh and a Warwick Corvette would be nice too :D

 

But I don't really have GAS. Nope. Not me ...

I'm basically content with all my gear.

 

If pressed, though, a couple of items come to mind:

 

Nordstrand NX5 fretless 5-string - mahogany body, Nordstrand dual coil p'up in MM position, passive electronics

 

AccuGroove Tri112L cabinet

 

One of a slew of various 2U, 20 lbs. or less heads (e.g., iAmp 800, Eden WT-550, Thunderfunk TFB550, etc.)

 

Honestly, though, I'm really not GASsing all that hard at the moment.

 

Peace.

Since I just unloaded my Bag Ends I am gassing for a pair of Eden D112XLT single 12 Cabs to go with my Eden WT 550...

 

anybody hear the Eden single 12 cab yet.. I hate to buy cabs w/o hearing them first....

 

also considering another brand of 12" ...CWA

things to help EPB's GAS:

1. the neck is finished, and is not as fast a other bass necks.

2. the pickups have low output (purposely). it is deabatable that this makes it sound better, but you really have to push the rig to cut through keyboards and guitars.

3. i've experienced some construction flaws, like both strapholders and the volume knob coming loose.

 

it does have a myriad of tone options, and it records well, as i am currently tinkering with my zoom ps-04 4 track portable recorder, and have recorded with it in a studio.

 

sorry, i know that was off-topic. i'd love one of these though.

GAS? No mater how happy I might be with my current set-up, it's always lurking around there somewhere...

Wants: A fretless 5 string (it exists in my mind; just need to find the right luthier and of course the money)

and/or Godin A5

more Piranha speakers to go with my Phil Jones Six-Pak (maybe the 9 or 16 speakers cabinets?)

 

Needs: a new strap

some more cables (Planet Waves or Lava Cables)

More time to play what I have and to actually use my PC & Cubase to write/record

More talent to play what I have

 

Misc: a Godin Solidac guitar

 

Unfortunately, all of these will have to wait a little while.

Am I alone in not liking the look of the Rob Allen basses. I went through the entire website collection and couldn't find IMHO a single bass that looked aesthetically pleasing. Not meaning to be provocative just stating an opinion.

Well my Gas has been temporarily relieved by the recent purchase of a Boss ME-50B and a MXR M-80. I am very content with my 80's MIJ P-Bass and my defretted Yamaha BB300, however methinks a better 5 string is in order. Not that my OLP is all that bad, I'd just like something a bit better. Like a real Stingray perhaps? A better amp is also on the GAS list.
