  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks for reply. I would not worry about intonation errors of a few cents, different finger pressure, hand position, vibrato and temperature will also come into play in a gig. Just to add to the fun, in one musical genre I played in, tuning slightly sharp improved the overall band mix. I have no idea why this should be.
  3. My main bass is my affinity p bass. modded the pups but I love it. light and easy to play.
  4. Sorry, I'm a Richard. The wavering info i gave was incorrect. It wavers between 438 & 442 Hz, which translates to roughly 10 cents either side of 0.
  5. Love watching this as I was there and our banner was showed a couple of times throughout the footage. I remember needing a fosters πŸ˜‚
  6. Couldn't agree more, RIP Freddie πŸ’—
  7. This is definitely true, but there are still many artists - especially grime artists - getting relatively rich through music. The difference is they're not doing it solely through the established route of gigs and record sales, they're getting paid through social media, licensing, guest appearances and cameos etc. They're having to work harder and have a more consistent output for less cash than the old bands, which also explains why the music - especially grime - is made and recorded using the most basic equipment, usually by 2 people rather than a whole band in an expensive studio full of engineers followed by pressing plants / managers etc - and released for no cost in next to no time, but still attracting an audience of millions in a matter of days. Basically to make money in the current environment, you have to have minimum personnel, simple equipment that gives you instant results, zero production cost, zero manufacturing costs and endless confidence, energy and enthusiasm. Genres like grime fit into that format perfectly.
  8. I watched a bit earlier. Robert Plant's lacklustre performance reminded me how good Freddie was...
  9. Its the only way they'll learn!
  10. Wow, harsh. Can you not just keep the receipt?
  11. Hi there, Thanks for your reply, I only fret as hard as I would if I was actually playing, but it's interesting to learn how such a small variation in pressure can still make a difference. I'll have to try the 3/5/7 balancing act, I think, thanks for the suggestion. As for the wavering, it's about 1 cent either side of '0'. The initial attack obviously shows 'sharp', but as the note 'settles', this is when the wavering shows, and remains as the note decays. (Almost like using harmonics as a tuner on frets 5 & 7 on adjacent strings, before achieving spot-on tuning.) Deep breath, & back to it... πŸ˜€ In the meantime, sir, thanks very much for your advice, definite food for thought, and very much appreciated!
  12. If you are available for contract work of the sort above, our neighbour has, unasked for, kindly entered our garden and severely levelled the hedge two days ago. I am open to the neighbour being used in the first option above or subjected to the latter. It is not far from Monmouth to Mid Wales, so will be the work of a few hours.
  13. As above, the AIDS benefit gig from 1992 on Pick TV at the moment , many different guest vocalists singing Queens best but as well as all that a great chance to listen to John Deacons effortless and sublime bass playing.
  14. Not any more, bad experience with plastic packaging within the area normally occupied by gravy
  15. I've bought a twin-pack of what they describe as "Chip Shop Minced Steak & Onion Pies". I have my doubts, but if I'm dissatisfied in any way, I can always firebomb the place tomorrow. Oooh, I happen to have found out that Teebs is playing at an "open Mic" this Sunday. Probably best to hit him on the way out in the dark (that's if the audience haven't done the job for you already). Don't thank me - I'm happy to help. And good luck! πŸ‘

  17. Sweet jesus that's a beauty! Good price too, would love this!
  18. If the OP reads the reviews (below the item description, just keep scrolling down) they should get some idea how the speakers perform. Also there may be some other reviews online, try google or Youtube. I've had a couple of Thomann Monitors and they are fine for the money. If you don't like them, send them back within 30 days for a refund..

    Phoenix kit is the biz, ex API engineers, I have their N16 summing mixer in my home studio rack. its hiding behind the S3 here. More to the point, Fractal and Kemper?
  20. Whilst I found that useful in my former professional career I found this more directly useful in the dark arts of management: https://www.marines.mil/Portals/59/Publications/MCDP 1 Warfighting.pdf It has the bonus for cheapskates like me, free, tried and tested (though not sure about recent results).
