Yes folks, it's really happening!!

The time is:

10am-4pm on Sunday, April 2nd

The venue is:

The Memorial Hall, Cheddon Fitzpaine, near Taunton, Somerset TA2 8JY

Special guest (others to be invited):

Stephen Chown of Chowny Bass, who will bring some of his lovely basses and give an informal presentation on his experiences of designing basses and having them manufactured off-shore - initially in China and now India.

The hall is located 3 miles from M5 J25 in secluded woodland on the outskirts of the village. This is pretty much half way between Bristol and Exeter and should be comfortably less than an hour's drive from either city centre on a Sunday. For images and more information visit http://www.cheddonfi...o.uk/index.html

We've got exclusive use of the whole building for the day. The basses will be bashed in main hall (which also has a very impressive stage that we'll use for Stephen Chown's presentation and any other speaker/s I can organise) but there is also a smaller meeting/conference room that we could maybe use to display basses & equipment for sale on the day. There will be an entry fee of £10 per head (including raffle ticket) to cover costs and basic food, tea/coffee and soft drinks will be available as required at a small extra charge. Any surplus funds will be donated to a suitable music charity - let me have your suggestions please and I'll put them to a forum vote.

You are actively encouraged to bring any basses and gear that you think will be of interest (for hearing, playing, or buying) to other forum members - let me know what you're planning and I'll draw up a list of 'probables'. Please note that everybody will be responsible for ensuring the safety of their own gear on the day, so don't forget to pack your bass stands!

Watch this space for more details - all suggestions/questions welcome!

Mike

I've got a lot of nice basses at the moment. I'll probably bring the following: G&L SB2, Stingray SR5 fretless, Thunderbird Pro-V, G&L Tribute L2500 (FT/FS)

I also have a L1505 and a 90's USA precision Fretless (FT/FS) so if anyone wants to play anything in particular let me know. They are all nice guitars IMHO.
Basses: EB MusicMan SR5's, G&L's.
Amplification: Genz Benz

I will bring my Fender Aerodyne, Greg Bennett (Samick) Semi-Acoustic (that reminds me I must do a NBD for that), My home brew 500W amp and maybe a surprise?

I am looking forward to trying My Chowney's basses and comparing them to the Greg Bennett. Early start of me as although everyone thinks of Poole as being SW it is really south so don't spare the coffee.

Coffee? You'll need a blood transfusion after that drive!

The problem is that Poole is miles from anywhere except Bournemouth and Southampton. Neither of which are worth the petrol money. In the absence of blood, will there be the next best thing? Real Ale!

On a serious note I can now confirm that the new design Basschat 1x12 plus Compression Horn cabinet will be at the bash. The design is complete so I just have to build the cabinet and the crossover and cover it and make a grille....should be done by the 1st April.

As a heads up, anyone with any Yamaha MIJ stuff should expect some sort of offer from me as I'm on the hunt for that sort of thing. :D

I'm having carpal surgery on 24th Feb so I probably won't be able to play much/at all by then, but if I'm able to drive I'll come along anyway. I'll bring a couple of as yet unlisted geetars that might be of interest.

Cheeky question but does anyone have any Yamaha MIJ stuff they're thinking of bringing along? I'm eyeing up a TRB5PII and probably will be open to buying any Yamaha MIJ stuff on the day. :)
