Lane on the Bus

Postby LaneOnBass » Fri Jul 16, 2010 8:17 am

So... I've been a bit busy the past week. I had an audition down in Nashville this past Tuesday. I got the FINAL Final answer last night that I was the band's choice for new bass players.

So... who is it?

Ryan Pelton

Ryan actually does two acts with one band. First, he's one of the country's top Elvis tribute artists. You may have seen him in the "fantasy" Volvo commercial, or in Hound Dog, the major release starring Dakota Fanning.

Second, the band does a non-Elvis show of classic covers. So, he is able to book the "regular" band and the Elvis tribute to the same fairs and festivals.

I can hear it now: Lane why are you doing this?

First, I *love Elvis. I grew up on his music. And I've done more than a dozen tribute acts over my career.

Second, I really like these guys. I'm confident that living on a bus with them will not drive me crazy.

Third, the money is GOOD.

Fourth, I can still do my work from the road.

So, check out Ryan's web site and see if we're coming to your area. I'd love to meet any of y'all.

You'll also be able to hear a DNA cabinet, as I'm taking the 210 on the road with me. And if I can fit it on the bus, David will be sending a 115 to go with it.

Keep on eye on the The Tour Bus section, as I intend to deliver road reports.

Keep your fingers crossed for me. this is my first bus tour in quite a while. Plus, I've got about 80 songs to learn. By next Wednesday!

Oh! And I'm getting a new Spector just for this show...
Keep Thumpin'!

I perceive yer just a wee bit, "pumped" :D

Enjoy, and I hope the bus doesn't end up "confining". 8-)

Sounds like a fun tour with a neat bass. Now that you *need* some DNA cabs for the road, will that expedite our orders, too? Our summer work is all stacked up during August.

Of COURSE it's black!! LOL And it should be here today, just in time to take with me.

I've got the 210 cabinet, which is now 8 Ohms -- has the final check sample drivers in it. so, I'll be able to beat it up on the road. I'm hoping to be able to fit the 115 on the bus when it's ready.

I'm also carrying a couple of "old" 112 cabs... but only for the times when the 210 is not enough.

Oh, and I fried my old 550W amp before the first rehearsal even started! It appears as if it's a problem in the low voltage side of the power section, so shouldn't be much to fix. thankfully, I had two 260s with me, so I could spare up and keep going. Roy Vogt is letting me borrow his old 600W amp while mine is fixed.

More road updates soon!
Keep Thumpin'!

Lane,

Fantastic! enjoy the ride!

A little birdie told me that you are getting a killer Spector version of a 4 string jazz for the tour, because the band was a little intimidated by your beautiful 6 string - that it did not have the presentation needed for Elvis. Well, as musicians, we do what we must... The new bass sounds sweet! Must have pictures!
:banana-gotpics:

Personally, I play much better (faster, clean chops) on a 4 string than on a 5. but for those with a 6 string, well, I will just leave those alone...
- John

If you buy it right the first time, you have nothing to be ashamed of!

Bass: Roscoe SKB 3005 - Sculpted quilt maple top on a swamp ash body. Tobaccoburst finish. 35" scale 24 fret maple neck. Bartolini pickups & 3 band preamp.

Gotta tell ya, bro... the Coda 4 is AMAZING. Aguilar pick ups and pre amp... can go passive as well. Itty bitty neck profile... a la 1962 Jazz.

Fit and finish is, as always, flawless... and it's set up so low you can feel the friction when you do that standard check -- press on string at 2nd and 12th frets and insert business cards, one at a time until you feel a touch of "drag", Well... mine is so low you can feel drag on a single card!!!

And while I wouldn't use the word intimidated, it's true that the band wasn't sure a 6-string was the right choice for the gig. BUT!!! *I* made the choice to get the new one before anyone every said anything.

I've also got other new toys, and will post later today about those. Right now, it's 5 in the Why Am I Still Up? so I'm headed for my bunk. I'll see y'all later and will post more info on the toys... and on the DNS-210 cab I'm beating up on this tour.
Keep Thumpin'!
