Arrival at around 12.00
People will set their gear, chat and try each others gear.
We'll be having 2 seminars - the first around 1.30 the second around 3.00
You'll be constantly harassed to buy raffle tickets
Hoping that the photographers will be here again - if so you'll be able to have pics taken with/without gear most of the day
Raffle at around 4pm - lots of interesting prizes this year - but donations accepted.
Tea/coffee and savouries available

More detail closer to the time...

I value everybody's opinion...especially when it's the same as mine

That's great! I'm sure the guys will be happy - there is indeed a dedicated jamming stage, which would be a bit pointless without a drummer. Last year we had a BCer's friend do the honours.

We don't appear to have started any comments here on gear we can/will bring.

I have a Barefaced One10. The tone is very different from the 12" Midget I had. I'll also bring a MarkBass LM3 but if you have any other amp you're welcome to try out the cab for yourself.

Alas I shall have to remove myself from the list. I've been invited to a wedding, which is going to involve pretty much the whole weekend. It's the wedding of a dear friend and former housemate of mine, so should turn into a bit of a reunion of those of us who were all hip and trendy in Slough in the 80's (yes, that is possible!) It was like 'Friends' personified, lol.

I might have to bail out too - seems like by that time I'll already be living in a rather far-away part of the country, and while I still intend to come if I can, I may not be able to.

Many, many thanks to Guy and Joel at Blaze Publishing (Bass Guitar Magazine) for again supporting this event by providing numerous raffle prizes. So good to see organisations supporting grass roots events and giving something back to the Bass playing community.

Guy was good enough to give up his own copy of this month's magazine signed by Robert Trujillo.

Again, many thanks fellas...

Thinking about setting up a space for "items for sale" but need to know whether it's going to be viable.

If anybody is bringing something to sell can they list this against their name.

OK, with just under two months to go we're going to have to start finalising details for this years event.
  • Preliminary plans are to do our usual test which Lozz will provide details of in the not too distant...
  • Nick Smith (Doctor of the Bass) will be back again with a seminar on SIMS p/ups and the Enfield Basses which he is a stockist for. I'm hoping that he doesn't do too good a job TBH - (I believe) I've got enough basses already without acquiring more GAS.
  • SiBob's parents did a great job last year as official Herts Bash photographers, providing great quality photos of attendees with their basses FOC. Just waiting for confirmation that they'll be offering this service for us again.
  • Andy from D'Addario will again be present, supporting the event with access to his knowledge of strings and prizes for the raffle. I'm sure if there's demand he'll bring strings, etc which will be available to buy. Please let us know if there are any D'Addario products you can't do without.
  • The Greek has spent months scouring online market places for interesting Bass related prizes for the raffle. Some people have already benefited from some the unusual prizes I've managed to acquire. Bass Guitar magazine have again provided raffle prizes including a copy of the LBGS edition signed by Robert Trujillo. Mark King has graciously signed a collectible 1902 bottle of King's Ale for us(see pics above). Obviously any other prizes will be gratefully accepted.
  • Bassface 2k10 will again be manning the canteen with a range of hot/cold drinks and savouries.
  • I'm hoping that luthier Martin Herrick will be along with some of his custom pick ups - he's happy to discuss custom pick ups and retro fits for the most popular basses.
  • We'd like to have a marketplace where attendees can buy/trade gear so if you have anything you'd like to sell/trade bring it along.
  • Hopefully Bluejay and Jack will again be providing cameras to record events for the blog and YT.
The format and costs are pretty much as last year - remember that the money you spend goes directly to the venue and helps keep it open for local community.

Costs - Entry: £10
Raffle: £5 for two tickets

Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Checked the diary and I'm actually not working.... Which is a miracle.

Although I don't think that I'm going to contribute much as I have hardly touched my bass in about a year due to work commitments.

So as a Bash virgin......what sort of things happen at these get togethers ???

In brief, most people bring a selection of their gear, so others can have a tryout. There are usually a couple of presentations/seminars/tutorials/gear shoot-outs. A raffle where thanks to Micks (The Greek) amazing ability to wangle gear out of companies there are usually a couple of decent prizes, plus many bass/music related donations. And we get to meet each other face to face, rather than keyboard to keyboard.

But the best thing of all is that we raise money for a good cause - in this instance for the youth club where we have the bash. It`s great that our hobby can help raise money to keep such places up & running as due to recent government cuts etc (am not going political here), places like these are closing all over the place. Our contributions are always welcomed.
