Ordered this custom made in the USA Keisel JB4 Jazz Bass. They tell me it will take up to 12 weeks for my order to arrive. I’m loving the surf green color and the birdseye maple fingerboard. BTW, the headstock on this stock photo says’s Carvin. Mine will come with the Keisel logo. Keisel’s been around since 1946. Carvin and Kiesel were basically the same company until last year when Carvin closed their doors.

Here’s a video clip of the 5 string version in a different weird green color, and a standard maple fingerboard. Same electronics though.

Awesome man! That maple fingerboard will give you a much brighter high end. That green reminds me of Billy Sheehan’s bass:

Alex, it’s a similar color. BTW, Billy Sheehan’s a great player.

Here’s the options I got.

Considering it’s made in the USA, You can’t beat the price

Well that’s a really nice price with all the customisation, and it’s made in the USA as well. Cool

I forgot to mention that the Head Stock is also Birdseye Maple as well. I will post a picture in 12 weeks when I get it. BTW I selected 45, 65, 85, 105 gauge round wound nickel plated strings. It’s the gauge I use on all my basses.

Yeah I saw it on the list and on the pic as well. I think I use the same gauge strings as well; pretty standard I believe. Of course I also have the fat 125 as well… Cool

125 on a B string I hope. I’ve never played a 5 string bass before. I personally never seen anything higher than a 110 gauge E string on a 4 string bass before.

Skyrc3000.  Can't wait to read the manual on this charger.  L6 is there to show everyone who does not have

this charger just how big it is.

I got the JVC HA-FX101's today.

I'll compare them to my iLuv iEP322's.

Both sound great and have a good amount of bass.

The iEP322's have more volume, by a moderate amount.

The HA-FX101's do not have hardly any noise isolation.  I believe this is due to the ear tips.

Overall, the JVC's are very good, but I like the iLuv's better.

Right now the iLuv's are next to impossible to find, except for some pink ones on eBay, and the JVC's are easy to find.

I'm probably one of the few people left on the planet not using a smart phone.  Still have my trusty flip phone.

Got two WyzeCam V2 1080P security cameras for $51.96 total with shipping. Very impressive video quality. I’m still playing with the settings, but so far I’m really happy. It totally blows away my 17 year old 5 camera DVR system. I’ll be ordering more soon.

Hey raccoon city, I like the KZ brand, they have removable cables and sound great. I bought a lot and mostly use the KZ ZS3, they have more expensive ones but I didn’t like them like the ZS5. ZS3 has good bass, great isolation, and its very cheap on GB, its like $7ish usually on flash sale and also has mic. You can also buy a bluetooth attachment for them (although there is audio delay for videos). They look like custom molded headphones too and are very comfortable! Smile I don’t think you will buy another pair if you try it. They also have memory wire, but I removed the memory wire because I hate memory wire.

I got diatomaceous earth today! Its for the insects that will come in the summer, this kills a lot of pests by causing them to dehydrate to death. I’m glad insects don’t have pain receptors.

Here is what I got in the last few weeks:

Don’t worry, some of these prices include coupons, so they aren’t the real deal, and many of them don’t include the wholesale discount.

Nah no. I have never given Apple any money, and I never will.

Especially after the iMac Pro Linus debacle.

One sticking factor for me is that they have to fix the keyboard. By some estimates the failure rates are 100x previous models, and it costs $700 to repair.

I have some KZ ATE-S.

The stock eartips are horrible, and eventually I might try to find some nice silicone tips.

Were they too big to fit? The ATE-S are just the same as the ATR internals but more expensive for some reason. The stock ones on the ATR aren’t bad but the ZS3 are great for me, especially the fit. I heard that the sony hybrid tips are good, they may help your headphones you have now get a better seal, although I do highly recommend the ZS3 (the ZS5 is open and has less isolation as well as less bass, I heard that they are very shrill now as well).

If you have android as your music player, I install ainur on my player and I highly suggest viper4android which will help your bass.

No, too small.

They fit KZ ATE-S?  If so, I might have to pick some up.

If you want the best of the best of KZ, get the KZ ZS6.

It is apparently awesome:
