Congratulations to Tim Bastock, the proud new owner of the bass we were giving away at the London Bass Show this year. Tim sent us this photo of himself looking rather chuffed, with the following note:
‘The London Bass Guitar Show has been on our calendar since its inception in 2011 – always a fun day (or two!) out, looking at all the latest “new toys”, and meeting up with fellow bassists from all walks of life. This year we chanced by the Rotosound booth… I remember using Rotosound tape-wound on an acoustic guitar back in the 70s, but had kinda lost touch with the brand and the company. A most pleasant chat with Jason resulted in me exchanging a slice of credit-card for a couple of sets of SwingBass 66’s – and an entry into the prize draw to win a G&L Bass. I always enter these things, and never ever win. But this was obviously going to be my lucky day! A week after the show, the email came through from Jason: “Congratulations! You’ve WON!”… Wow!! One very happy, if somewhat astounded, me! I’m now looking forward to a more intimate acquaintance with a G&L L-2000. (Oh, and for the record, I am playing a SwingBass 66 set on my current gigging bass – and rather enjoying the experience. Looks like I’ll be buying more of these in the future!)’
We’re planning plenty more giveaways throughout the year – right now we’re giving you the chance to win a set of your favourite Rotosound strings with our #stringpackselfie giveaway on Instagram. Head over and join us!
