  • On My Frequency

    For those interested in the tech stuff, I found a few interesting pieces on frequency and diffraction of bass sound. I was surfing about and found some sites that talked about why the bass penetrates more powerfully through walls and for longer distances than the rest of the instruments.

    I am a Bassist

    I am a Bassist.

    When I first picked up a bass, it was love at first thump. That poor bass - a copy of a rip-off of a re-make of a Fender, played through an Ampeg guitar amp - was to me the ultimate instrument.Read More Read More
