The new amp


Here is a quick blast. The guitar is The Baby - made specially for me when I was 18, it is now over 30 years old but is still one of the nicest basses I have ever played.

I don't talk because every time I tried that Custard barked at me!

I start off playing with a basic, clean, sound.  Then I adjust one of the controls to give different effects.

The first is an envelope filter which gives a wah-wah effect.

The second adds another note an octave below the one I play.

The final effect is a chorus,which gives a swirling sound that is used by a lot of bass players.

Hope it comes through OK!

It came through very well! I thought it was awesome! My hubby is very much into playing guitar and has finally found an amp that he adores, so I totally understand how cool this must be for you. I'm so glad that your online order worked out for you! Rock on! :)

Well played, my friend. That was totally awesome. I kept waiting for you to comment on the cords, but understand that Custard is keeping you in check. The new amp's definitely a great addition. She may be 30 years old, but Baby sounds incredible. Excellent job, RC.

That second effect reminded me of a t.v. commercial that features Peter Frampton:
