Re: I need help with removal of this rod

...None of my tools worked on it... That sounds like you do not have lockjaw pliers among your tools. Jim really knows what you need. The trick of banging on the rod from the other end is a really bad idea. You may bend inner parts the rod goes through and end up jamming it more. You need to get a ...

Re: Using the left hand thumb

Personally, I'd play the Eb diminished using the Eb counterbass (3rd finger) with the A diminished chord (2nd finger). That's easy to reach. We're talking stradella bass, correct? debra, I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. Playing an F7 gives you an F note which isn't in an Eb dim and mi...

Re: I need help with removal of this rod

Won't locking pliers damage the end a bit? Does not matter as it does not have a critical specific shape. You need the locking pliers to get enough force on the rod by the pliers so that you can then use your strenght to try to wiggle it out (slowly and as gently as possible once it starts moving).

Re: Greetings from Poland :-)

Welcome! I like the virtual quartet playing Libertango. Too bad the sound is a bit too loud and clips to max.

Re: Steamy rehearsal room

... Both the shims and the silica bags were supposed to be removed when the dealer received the product before sale. ... The Hohner Gola certainly had the silica bag installed in a position that seemed like it just belonged there. Here is the inside of a Gola of over 50 years old that shows the bag...

Re: Using the left hand thumb

Sorry Paul....wasn't paying attention...should have said for C dim I use the thumb on D7 and keep the C root I find it counterintuitive to use the F7...but that's just my style.. For the C#dim I may use the thumb on the A7 or may just play the counter bass of A (C#) as I find these directions let m...

Re: Hohner Arietta IV M

Any instrument that has not been played for 29 years will look just the same as 29 years ago on the outside. But you don't know what happened on the inside. It will likely need some work. If you are lucky that "work" is just playing it for some time (making sure you play all the notes, so good oppor...

Re: Using the left hand thumb

On a 3 x 3 system the thumb is a great device for hitting the sharp root (ie C#dim in key of C) diminished You completely lost me here. What makes it easier to play C#dim in the key of C? C#dim on a 3+3 system has 3 of its notes as C7 but the base note C# is still quite far away (major third of A o...

Re: Goodbye... And Hello to a morino VC

Unfortunately its not a converter instrument unless theres a secret button somewhere :p inside the bassmachine looks really neat and all gold anodyzed. Also thema lowest bassnotes are in a 180 degree tunnel instead of the90 degree in my VI n. Perhaps i van show the keyboards better. Concerning the ...
