Hello. Many of you have tested or regularly use wireless systems for bass guitar. What are you're experiences with the ones on the lower end of the price scale?

Get going on bass for $600

Today, I asked following question on Facebook:

If you lost all your bass stuff and had only $500 to spend to get up and running again (maybe $600 after working in McDonald's) - what would you buy? where would you look?

Here are some of the answers you people gave...

John Dryden: Port Alberni Pawnbrokers ..... $600 .... ouch .... buy a guitar and rent amps… Continue

Changed URL to

Today, I changed the domain name of the BassHive to the URL we had before: The old system was prone to spammers and missing core functions like simple video integration, simple photo integration and chat. We all like this system better ;-)

Some ideas on how to use BassHive:
  1. start a blog about your experience in your band
  2. write a blog about you building a bass…

Starting a new BassHive

Testing this system today - to see if this is a solution to replace the old BassHive - which was full of spammers and crashed numerous times. This thing looks promising!

Heya Sam!  We're getting killed by spammer here... over 4000 spam blogs (and growing daily) and spam discussions.  I've got all the discussions deleted and am working on all the blogs but, until we can get the offenders banned, it's an uphill battle.  I'm doing what I can but...

HELP! :)

Hey Sam it's been a long time.

We have a bunch of Spammers again selling Wedding Dresses and Shoes.

Can I make a list of users and send to you or is someone else better to have do it?

Hi Sam I think this site looks great in the yellow and greys. It seems so much easier to read and use in general. I for one am glad to see it back to the original design. Thank you. It has made my day logging in today to find it back the way it was. }:0)

Hi Sam. I didn't spot this comment.  The old site seemed easier to navigate and I thought looked much better.  There are also no headers on the group pages and you can easily get lost when you are going around the site.
