The All About The Bass event at PMT Birmingham will take place on Saturday 14th May, and it's a great opportunity for bassists to learn a few tips, enjoy live performances & more!
If you're a bassist living in or around Birmingham, you'll know that PMT Birmingham is the best music shop in the area, catering for all your "low-end" needs: we stock bass guitars from all the top brands such as Fender, Gibson, Ibanez and Rickenbacker; besides bass amps, fx pedals and accessories.
But we also host events, such as last year's well-attended bass clinic with Paul Weller's bassist Yolanda Charles. This May's All About The Bass event will be one not to be missed, featuring Dave Clarke and Steve Lawson, who will perform live and join our bass clinic Q & A from 1:00PM.
Clarke is a local bass legend, a talented bassist who's been playing with the Alvin Stardust band for nearly 4 years, besides playing with artists such as composer, fusion pioneer Surinder Sandhu, Midlands blues-rock band 'Hangman' (who opened up for acts such as Brian May and Whitesnake).
Lawson is a respected bassist who has been regularly featured in prestigious publications such as Bassist and Guitarist Magazine, as well as writing for The Independent On Sunday, Bass Player and Bass Guitar Magazines. His signature technique is to perform using loops:
And if you needed even more reasons to attend this event, what about this: Dunlop have announced they're going to give away a set of Dunlop Superbright strings 45-105, to be given to each seminar attendee (£20.99 usually!)
There'll also be an MXR pedal signed by Marcus Miller to be given away to one lucky customer.
