I like talkbass. Like most things in life you have to take the good with the bad. The classified section over there is great.. and I have learned a lot. Most of my gear came from there.. There are some snobs .. like everywhere you know..

.. but overall I like the place. I never really explored here til recently.. although I joined a while back.

This place doesn't have 1/100th the traffic that Talkbass has. This place was buzzing about 7-10 years ago, but has dwindled through the years because of other social media like myspace, fb, and this site was plagued with latency issues for about 2 years....the latency issues being the figurative nail in the coffin.

And don't forget scantily clad women. Nipplegate started the downward spiral IMO. The slow loading just finished it off.

I've found the upright bass section pretty helpful, and got some good advice there. There are some cranks, as you'd expect in any large online community, but overall, I think that there is value in the site, especially from the moderators in the URB section, who are quite experienced and knowledgeable, IMHO.

I don't know about the electric bass section; much of it seems devoted to "pics of my ______________ bass" or "our hot lead singer."

Mo's opinion on the advice about speakers is most likely valid, but I haven't checked. I haven't been in the market for a speaker in a long while. I did get some good feedback about the GK micro head that I wound up buying, and it's worked out.

I have been a member for many years I read what interests me and don't bother with the rest. Like most any forum you take away what good you can and filter the rest.
