Oh, I haven’t even told you guys yet, this is my new bass!
Well not this exact one, mine is the same but it has active pickups, they sent this one, which didn’t have active pickups, so we sent it back and got one that did, which I’ve had for a couple weeks and still haven’t taken a picture of.
During the summer I leave all my equipment at the guitarists house where we practice, because I have to bike there when I don’t have a ride because the parental units are at work
but anyway ain’t it purrty?
photos from tonight’s show, I really like these pictures because they display the stage presence that we bring with our music, its half our set. That’s pretty much it.
Here’s a few photos of my band and I tonight at our “Cinco De Mayo” gig
I had a great time, the fans were energetic, the set sounded great, and I played with a bunch of friends, I’m good friends with all the guys from both of the bands we played with tonight. They are both so talented and amazing it was such a great local show with all the up and coming bands from my high school
check out my band and the two I talked about

cSo I did this today at band practice… Yikes! I didn’t lose the tuning peg I just took it off to assess the damage, and boy is there damage! It’s sort of okay though I’ve been looking into getting a new bass for a while, because this one really isn’t anything special (actually less than that), so this isn’t like a huge loss. Once I get a nice, new bass this will be my shitty one, that I take when I have to ride my bike to practice, or when I want to do a bass spin onstage!
If your wondering how this happened, it’s from many a falls this has taken due to me not having a case for it. The case I use when I bring it places is a gig bag from an old guitar that is a headstock and a half shorter.
But the straw that broke the camels back was today when I was getting really into the set at practice today because our guitarists neighbors (well all their little kids and one or two adults, audience of like 12 or so) watching our practice and at the end of one of the songs (don’t remember which one, I think it was All The small Things) we did a “big finish” and on the last note I used my headstock to hit the drummers other crash (that he doesn’t use for the last hit) I brought my head stock smack down on the crash cymbal, pretty much using my headstock as a drumstick, I looked at it about 30 seconds later and realized that I made quite a crack.
The many falls + it being old + it being shitty and made out of cheap wood + ^that story= the above picture
sorry for the really long post
This, my friends, is the sexiest piece of equipment I’ve ever bought (also the most expensive, bought it new) The Peavy Tour TKO 115, 200 watts on its own, 400 watts though a cab. It’s fucking loud, I haven’t taken it past 5 on the master volume yet while at practice and I cant even use it at home. Haven’t gigged with it yet, but I’ll find out how it does live in May. Oh, and that thing next to it is my half-ass bass, it’s okay and gets the job done but certainly not the best.
What I got it for: $300.00
