Re: Bass Mic???

I can't recommend a mic for stand-up, but the MD 421 is super for bass cabs. In fact another Sennheiser mic that sounds surprisingly good for bass cabs is the e604, those little tom mics.

I think Go-Bots were like the poor man's Transformer. That's why I had a ton of them. I did have the Transformer that turned from gun to robot.

Re: Hank Williams, III????

Re: Going to Nashville........Tennesse that is...

If you're a guitar fan, check out Gruhn's Guitars.

I don't live there, but I met the coolest people in some of the music clubs on Broadway.
