Flying Aubergines


#1

Sorry @Bamnan I don’t think they can I’m afraid.


#2

liked their early EPs


#3

probably true but now that I’ve googled it I really want this stupid guitar


#4

SUBTHREAD:

anybody here ever owned a silly instrument? Would like to know!


#5

Could make one yourself from an Encore strat, some sandpaper, and loads of pots of Goblin Green and whatever that Dark Elf purple is.


#6

Bought a five string bass once.


#7

I had a mate who swore by his one, seemed really unwieldy though. Is it the higher string that’s added?


#8

No, the standard way is a low B.


#9

I have enough trouble mixing the bass when I’m playing low on the E string, god knows what the point of a low B is


#10

it does remind me of a shit eldar paint scheme I tried when I was a kid


#11

I think they’re quite useful in some soul things etc. A lot of five strings have a rubbish low B though, either really weedy or muffled.


#12

stylophone beatbox. useless piece of shite


#13

that sounds wonderfully ridiculous


#14

it does, doesnt it? but its just ridiculous. its got a sample function, so it should work like a really lofi drum machine, but it skips a beat when you sample it so theres no way of making a useful loop with it


#15

can you do some fun glitchy shitty beats at the end of a track or something? grandaddy style?


#16

maybe. i should dig it out again, sacked it off when i got really frustrated with it. my mate had one as well so i talked to him about the loop thing, thinking mine was faulty, but no it turns out his does the same. its a feature, not a fault


#17

are you meant to start the recording one beat early like a lead in or something? I don’t really get how that’s a feature. Take a soldering iron to it and turn into a fun circuit bent monstrosity!


#18

literally no idea


#19

This makes me want to play Day Of The Tentacle


#20

yeah it’s very much that isn’t it!
