but it's so much easier on a Dingwall.

Things have been pretty busy out on the road, but here's me in front of 40,000 college kids at Chilifest 2007 in Snook, TX. Two words. Redneck Lollapalooza. The lineup was Jack Ingram, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Pat Green, Aaron Watson (my outfit), and Willie Nelson. In that order. It was wild.

It snowed lightly for about an hour here in Tyler TX on Saturday, a rare event in Texas in April. It was too warm for it to stick, though :(

No snow in Snook, I'll bet.

Here we are...again -Guitarded- rock and roll sandwiched between oldies karaoke and country. The dues should be paid off at this point, don't you think? :? Oh, well- I still love seeing the band name in plastic letters. It brings a big smile to my face every time. :) Then I strap on a Dingwall and get really happy! :D (sorry about the crappy cell phone pix)

Here's a video from a recent outdoors gig, our first with my Prima:

Sadly, the cam didn't catch the bass, it's a real shame because the sound coming out of the Dingwall and the Glockenklang Heart Rock was nothing short of amazing. I can't even imagine how much better it can become once I get rid of these damned bartolini pickups and put some FDs on it.

Call me uninformed, but I didn't know they rocked like that in Greece. Heavy stuff. So, do you all have trees and things like we do in the States :wink:

Here's yours truly with the awesome, updated Voodoo Prima, "groovemachine" sold me. Our band twoMANlift was playing a show in the Wodanhalle in Freiburg (Germany) in January. You can see a video of the show here: http://myspace.com/twomanliftonline

I've been a busy player this past weekend- 4 shows in 3 days. My ABI performed flawlessly, as usual, and despite crazy temprature and weather extremes, the tuning was rock solid:

[b:2zuevwvu]Thursday[/b:2zuevwvu]: 9PM gig in an air conditioned club, that quickly heated up due to an enormous crowd, tuned down 1/2 step.
[b:2zuevwvu]Friday[/b:2zuevwvu]: 4PM gig outside on a covered stage at the TBone Walker Blues Festival, steady light rain and high 70s temps, tuned up to A-440; the stage crew outside saw me and the first thing they asked was, " Did you bring the Dingwall?"- they remembered from last year; then back to the air conditioned club at 9PM, tuned down 1/2 again, where the place became hotter and more crowded than the night before (they actually ran out of cold beer - no problem, though - I was sipping Patron :D)
[b:2zuevwvu]Saturday[/b:2zuevwvu]: Blues festival again at 4PM, but inside this time, tuned back to pitch. Yep, one of the inside stage crew saw me and asked, "You playing the Dingwall today?"- he also remembered it from last year.

Whew- that's a lot for an old guy, but the Dingwall was, again, a total pleasure to play and the tuning was very stable. The sound guys, again, raved about the tone and reported that the bass needed no EQing at the board. The inside guy commented after the set, " I wish more guys used a Dingwall- it sounds amazing." Yes, it does :D Thanks, Sheldon, for creating such an incredible instrument.

Well, after 5 years of being a solo, self-taught hobbyist I formed my 1st garage band a few months ago and played my 1st gig at the tender age of 44. Had a blast. The Dinger sounded great and we've already got a couple more gigs.....but I'm keeping my day job :-)

Very cool! Never to late to get out and play some shows.

It looks like you might not have had the best weather.

Yeah-it rained on and off all night, but there was a tent for the band and another adjacent for the party crowd.

Hmm... the Dingwall/Epiphany rig seems waaaay out of place with an epi Les Paul IMHO, but we work with what we have. Just call me a guitar snob... we're all bass snobs here in Dingland in case nobody noticed. 8)
Glad you're out gigging. Keep it up.

If I am not mistaken, that's an Ampeg PortaBass head, right?

The PB head isn't bad IMO. It's the newer PB800, not the wimpy earlier ones. I have an iAMP 500 I prefer, but to be honest, in a loud rock setting with PA support I doubt ther's an audible, real difference. The PB also has a bit more oooomph-through the Epifani UL112 (8 Ohm) and UL210 I'm getting around 700 watts to the iAMP's 500. I'd take the iAMP in a quieter setting, like studio, Jazz or when I back my buddy on acoustic.
