Hi .. I'm going to come along to this. Never been to one before, sounds fun. Space in the car from Derby if anyone needs a lift ... space for some basses too if I leave by double bass at home.

I can bring any or all of:

A Wal fretless, a (slightly odd) Warwick Dolph, a double bass, a TINY PJB amp (flightcase) and a LARGE Trace Elliot combo (if anyone wants to buy it!)

CU there
Wal Custom fretless
Warwick Dolphin Pro1
Fretless frankenbass by Northworthy, Delano and me
Tanglewood Rosewood Reserve Acoustic
1880s Markneukirchen full size Double Bass
Realist Sound Clip DB pickup
1890s Mirecourt Cello by JB Colin
Trace GP12SMX 300W (if anyone wants one!)
PJB Flightcase

Derby must be a hot bed of TE kit, I have just bought a very combo and cab from a guy in Derby. I grew up in Spondon but don't remember much TE kit in the music shops in Derby, remember a nice Roland amp I couldn't afford though.

It was indeed a Trace hotbed "back in the day". I played briefly in an electro-folk band that looked like we had Trace sponsorship .. the stage glowed green with it all!

The shop at the top of the Osmaston Road that now is Rattle and Drum, was previously Play It Again Sam and before that was .... erm I forget.... used to be stosh with Trace Gear. At one time it was a fantastic 2nd hand gear exchange too. I bought my trace combo (new), my Wal and a Yamaha BB2000 from there over the years. Now it only really stocks new mainstream brands (Fender, Ashdown etc). Hey ho.

Hope you can make it. You a sure to meet people who will interest and inspire you. I went to my first Bash (the South East one) when I had only been playing about 6 months. I was somewhat terrified, but found it a very useful experience.

I've been playing 6 years now. Can't believe it's been that long! Basschat has been an amazingly useful resource in that time.

I'm really hoping it will be a useful experience and have to agree it really is a terrifying prospect at the moment but will be good to meet new people.

There's no need to be terrified! We're an easy-going friendly bunch, and basically people chat about gear over tea and cakes, try out each other's basses/amps/effects etc, natter about bass, have a raffle and more tea and cakes, and more nattering about bass.

It's great - good to meet other players at various stages of their bass-playing life; some play at home, some are out gigging regularly, and some in between.

It's just a friendly get together really. I can't make it this year, but been the last two years and had a great time, even making a few new friends along the way.

I went to my first Bash last October with similar feelings. More so perhaps because it was a double bass bash and I don't play upright. I was curious and it was a great opportunity to meet some of the characters on here.

I think you'll get something out of it, if only cake...

See you there.

Make their day out a trip to the Bass Bash. Like take your daughters to work day only you're taking everyone else's too... Can't hurt to get them interested in the low frequencies early on now can it?

Unless there's a stripper no-one's mentioned booking...?

Good one.

The way it's looking at the moment he will be giving me a lift to the Bash. I will be into him for petrol money but I ain't gonna try and slip a twenty in his waistband unless he's an exceptional pole dancer.

That's good to know that :D I won't be bringing any gear with me but will be nice to see other people's bass although I don't think my credit card would agree.

Cake is always good, I'm looking forward to it now, should be there for about 1ish with a bit of luck.

While you lot are chatting, tapping, eating, slapping and rocking, I'll be co-hosting my lad's 6th birthday party. I think it'll be just as loud where I am, but with worse music.

I'll think of you as I'm doing pass the parcel

Jealous now. I don't think Si is laying on jelly and ice cream.

Heeheehee. You have a worthy commitment. Sorry you couldn't make it to this event but your lad will be happy that you could make it for his.
