  1. Past hour
  2. Why if it is factual? Its not saying they are good or bad, it is just something that happened.
  3. Yeah but if you make the cab 16R then it'll get half the power the 4x10 gets, so is it worth bringing for the tiny amount of volume it'll create? I know metal is loud, but do you really need more than that 4x10? They're LOUD! If I really needed more I'd just get another matching 4x10, they can be had for quite cheap these days as people don't want to move them.
  4. Mine arrived Thursday too, best £16.50 I’ve ever spent. What a collection - I thought the John Entwistle book was good, but Geddys is amazing!
  5. Thanks Bolo 😺 I have had interest . I think the fact that it's awkward to post has put people off understandably . Well tbh , after the realisation that I could just put it back into the gigbag and use occasionally and it's Easter Sunday , I may as well keep it . 😼
  6. Enjoyment of last night's gig was somewhat marred, by Timothy Taylor's Boltmaker no longer being a guest ale.
  7. 3 seconds? It's closer to 3/4 of a second... A punk originals band I was in got 28 songs into a 40 minute set, including some between song banter...
  8. I can see it in your eyes I can see it in your smile You're all I've ever wanted And my arms are open wide 'Cause you know just what to say And you know just what to do
  9. Hey folks - my name's Nick and I live in Edinburgh. I've been playing since I was in my mid teens (going to be 40 this year) and moved to Edinburgh a few years back. I'm originally from London but was in Aberdeen for a few years too. Due to the arrival of kids etc. I've struggled to find time to play over the past 3-4 years. Part of trying to get this part of my life restarted includes coming back to forums like this so I thought I'd do a quick intro. As a player I tend to aim into the Jamerson/Babbit/Jerry Jermott/Willie Weeks type space. I got really lucky when I was young as I had a couple of year learning with Paul Westwood who taught me basic harmony and how to walk through jazz standards before showing me how all that stuff culminated in James Jamerson. Since then I've done a load of different things (blues, big band and small band jazz, functions, originals, drum'n'bass / breaks, country / singer songwriter stuff). Gear wise I'm pretty much a J-bass guy - my main squeeze being a through neck 5 string which wears some old flats (it looks fancy but it's basically just a jazz bass with a narrower string spacing) running through a Genz Benz Streamliner and some Barefaced cabs. If anyone knows any good jams or teachers in or around Edinburgh then let me know.
  10. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  11. My SB2 is shod with thomastic. I tried my newly aquired SB1 with flats that were on the bass and in the end changed to rounds. Theres soomething nicely aggressive about the sound with rounds.
  12. Nobody want to blow their neighbours windows out with this fantastic amp? Price might be a little negotiable, it's not an easy one to value.
  13. Glad you got a copy I ordered mine 14th Feb and that got cancelled...
  14. I'll get some pictures up tomorrow, this is a total bargain Imo, I'll regret selling it as soon as a big gig requires it!

  16. Ordered it on 31/12/18! Paid £16.64 to be exact. Actually , I forgot about it until I had an email to say it had been despatched , and lo and behold it turned up yesterday in all its hardback glory, and can I say, it’s worth the wait, the quality of the pics, paper and interviews are superb.
  17. I thought this would be away quite quickly, proper working bass that sounds epic, I'm open to reasonable offers?
  18. Are we talking a mechanical knob-twiddler, like Neil Young's Whizzer? Obviously a more complex and smaller one!
  19. I know, I shouldn't really sell it, I know I'll regret it! Someone is interested in it so it might not be around for long then I'll soon find out how big a mistake I'm making, lol.
  20. Out of interest, do you remember when you ordered your book?
  21. Thanks. I've pretty much agreed to join. I believe it's about nine or ten years old. At the nut it's approximately 42mm, 58mm at the 12th fret, and it does look to be 19mm at the bridge. That seems to marry up with what's here: https://www.modulusgraphite.com/funk-unlimited
  22. That's REALLY nice! If they did a 5 I'd be all over it.
  23. It's a limited edition, and it is a shame it's not green. But then, that might have pushed me over the edge and I'd have ordered one...
  24. Mine arrived yesterday and I paid £16, including delivery from amazon.
  25. That's lovely and £600 is an absolute bargain! Nice one!
