• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.


Tuner/Other Pedals for Upright Bass?

I'm going to be getting an upright bass. I'm assuming that there is no good place to attach a Snark tuner. Can someone recommend a tuner?

Also, anyone using any other pedals with upright? Preamp? EQ? Reverb, etc?

Thank you!

I know a lot of people that will clip the Snark onto the bridge and tune that way. Otherwise, any pedal tuner will work just fine.

An EQ pedal of some sort is almost a requirement when using an upright in a group, to help control the feedback that you're going to be dealing with (depending on the volume level of the group).

Snark tuner can be clipped to the bridge; but personally, I'd prefer a pedal tuner, so you can mute the signal while tuning.
Upright bass doesn't need any effects. Some pickups come with preamps that have EQ. If you're using an amp, that will have EQ. If you're going directly into the mixing board/PA, and your pickup system doesn't already have a preamp, you might consider getting a (bass-specific) preamp pedal.
