Shure SM7 is a rap staple (spoken word), but a decent LDC might work well. AKG 414?

Edit: Another radio staple is the Electro Voice RE20, which Thom Yorke uses as well.

Is it just me or does Tal Wilkenfeld constantly make faces like she's taking a dump?

Her hair looks like someone took a dump on her head.

Went into Rumble Seat Music last week in Carmel. (They are closing down the Carmel store and moving to Nashville. )

They have had some pretty major league vintage guitars and amps in there over the last few years.But when I asked them about their '59 burst and they said "One Million dollars" it suddenly became kind of silly.

@GusW They closed the store in Ithaca! Bought my Firebird there. Shame.

If you have a few minutes, here is a great story and lots of pics about an original '59 burst.

It was for practical reasons. They are moving to Nashville to be near their customers. Nashville is easily the center of American music these days so the move makes sense. Never quite understood why they were in Carmel of all places.

Great documentry on Jaco just hit Netflix. Anyone with an appreciation for music will enjoy his remarkable story of talent, mental illness and redefining the electric bass.

Speaking of bass, I want to upgrade my current bass which is pretty crappy (a super muddy EB0) for a more punchy, better playing bass. I'm considering a (pre Ernie ball) Music Man Stingray - anyone have an opinion on those? Vs perhaps a Rick 4001, or a 70's Jazz or P.

I've been on the hunt for a Marshall in the box pedal lately. I just played a friend's Marshall DSL40c with an upgraded speaker (Creamback I think), and well, looks like I'll just go for the amp instead. That's the sound I've been searching for so no reason to settle for half measures.
