And his bass on the Shellac recordings.
"Bass" being a figure of speech, right? Of the little I've heard, the first and last thing I noticed was a dearth of low end.

Re: my bass cab goes rattle rattle . . .

I have this Ampeg 1x15 cabinet. About three years ago it just started farting at me. Better on some notes, worse on others (whatever was close to the resonant peak of the cab).

What he said.

If you get it, and it is an AG-440, holler at me. Mine's the same machine. B series, if memory serves.

Re: what broke today? 1/11/05

Re: FS: guitars. Spend your xmas cash.

Am I asking too much? I thought these prices were pretty reasonable, but feel free to counteroffer.

I need the cash, but I might consider trades too.
