To help organise things for our folks who play in Worship Bands, we have added a new forum specifically for your topics. I have already moved some of the content over. I'll go looking for the rest of it over the weekend.

4 string Mk2 Fretted with Shedua facings
Wal basses divide into three basic models - Mk 1, Mk 2 and Mk3s.
The Mk 2 shape is the original 5 string design but is also available in a 4 string version. It has a 24 fret neck with a longer body horn and contoured cutaways.

Check out this stunning 6-string from Germany's Le Fay basses.
The long stainless steel fingerboard has 28 fret positions. A real all-round bass that can do much more than normal fretless jobs. Remington Steele is easy to intonate and does not sound metallic at all.

The Enabler Ė EQ/D.I./Headphone Amp
The Enabler is a dynamic bass preamp that is really 3 pedals in one: A musical 3-band EQ with enough gain to drive a power amp, a pristine balanced line driver, and a studio-grade headphone amplifier with an auxiliary input. This is the pedal that you will never want to be without.

Hey, all yíall! I hope youíre not broiling in the heat. Iíve been very lucky; the weather in Sacramento has been somewhat mild, except for about two days when it topped 100į. But thatís not why Iím writing. I wanted to do a Show & Tell about my new straps.
For several years I have endorsed LM Products, a wonderful Indiana company that makes straps. They do everything from the basic nylon jobbies to full-on custom leather straps. I love them because they do extremely high quality work, and for a very reasonable price.

Brian Bromberg's Bass On The Broadband has its first Gear Column up and ready to enjoy.
Here's an excerpt:
"Hi, my name is Mick Donner and Iím very happy that Brian has asked me to write a regular column for Bass on the Broadband.
Iíve been a working bass player for over 40 years and have been a builder/repairman for the last 30. I did my first apprenticeship with an acoustic guitar builder named Lyle Haldy in 1981. In 1986 I continued my instruction with a very creative builder named John Allison when I joined the ranks of the Music Products Industry as a member of the service department at Washburn Guitars.
