NOTES:

Copley Bass:
Great sounding bass once the electronics were replaced with Duncan Bass lines, and now it sings!

Peavey Palaedium Bass:
Made in the USA. Nice bass and very easy to play!

V-Drums by Roland:
V-Drums by Roland with TD-10 upgraded module.  Nice range of sounds.

G&L L-2000 Series-E, Vintage:
Tone is difficult to define, and everyone seems to “hear” their own “sound.” Nice range of tones with these older Leo era basses!

Fender Octave Mandolin:
This is really frustrating.  Nice sounding instrument, but it buzzes like hell!  It’s really in need of a major neck adjustment that is too much for the truss-rod to handle. It came this way from Guitar Center, and it was the second one because the first one was worse!

Black Steinberger:
Great guitar–It’s a black Steinberger.

White Steinberger with an original Newburgh body–white:
This guitar was used to record a few things on the Urban Connections CD. Track 11 (Drifting), which was originally titled “Azithromyacin” because of a upper respiratory infection at the time of recording.

    The Palaedium was made in the USA. I’ve had two of them, kept one, and both were USA made.


    1. You are correct, Sir. It seems that when we updated the equipment page we accidentally copied the wrong section heading for the Peavey bass. It has now been corrected, thanks to you!

    1. Thanks very much for the compliment concerning the blog post and the site. I’ve been a bit busy lately, but I hope to upload some pictures and “how to” of a bass body I constructed for a G&L L-2000 that I got from EBay a while back….check back in a week or two to see it…not sure where I’m going to put it, but I’ll let you know.

      Thanks again!
