  1. Yes, pretty sure I got from Andy.
  2. I suspect I'm going to miss my MB rig. It always got complements for sound, allied to my bitsa P. CMD121H and Traveler 121H. Could really dish it out. Now I'll just have to see what I can do with an Elf and a couple of BF One10s.
  3. Not a single gig in 13 months, and won't be until April earliest owing to having to have some more scaffolding in my lower spine. End of March 2019, I was offered some dep work with a band I've played with before, but a piece of my recently reconstructed shoukder broke, so that was that... End of March 2020 will hopefully see me join said band permanently. This will mean several things: 1) Quite a lot of gigging, 60-70 a year. 2) I will need to save gigging cash to add another BF 110 to the micro-rig, just to bring it up out of the need for PA support. 3) I will need some really good new earplugs! Exciting times for a 67-year-old!

    Feedback for ipg

    ipg just bought a Smoothhound system from me - good to deal with, all entirely hassle-free! Thanks! Den
  5. Very little used.Battery or phantom-powered stage DI box. Here's the spec from Behringer: Professional and multi-purpose direct injection box for stage and studio applications Provides impedance and signal matching for the direct connection of instruments to mixers and amplifiers Ultra-flat frequency response due to renowned Behringer OT-1 transformer Internal battery automatically shuts off when phantom power is applied Allows direct connection to speaker outputs with up to 3,000 Watts Switchable input attenuation allows input levels of up to +50 dB Ground Lift switch eliminates typical ground loop problems ¼“ TRS and gold-plated XLR connectors Ultra-rugged, road-suitable aluminum case Stackable oversized rubber corners It's been sat in my bag as a standby for lo, these many moons. I've certainly no use for it in the future, so... Price is delivered, any questions, fire away. Edit: I have cleaned off the markings!
  6. Classic Smoothhound wireless system. Transmitter bug case is broken, hence price, but it all still works as it should. Any questions, fire away. If you can pick it up, then £40. Otherwise £45 includes postage. Note: Smoothhound will repair the bug for around £20 if you send it to them, so this could be very cost-effective to get an essentially 100% system.
  7. Brilliant, don't ask don't get! :D
  8. @obbm, for the same reasons, I swapped to a Jazz neck, the thinnest I could get. This turned out to be an American Special, new, from that there Stratosphere guy on Ebay. Wasn't cheap, but did the job. I had previously experimented with this setup, so knew it would likely work. As a trial, I used a Squier VM77 Jazz neck which was every bit as good and comfortable.
  9. This was great, but stupidly heavy at nearly 14 pounds!
  10. Looks to be a very similar construction, not quite identical. I'd be willing to bet it's pretty similar internally.
  11. Essentially, a Precision. Standard BBOT bridge, KioGon vintage circuit, slim, almost Geddy Lee Jazz neck, maple, standard USA pickups, black paint, BWB guard. Oh look, here it is!
  12. Certainly doesn't appear so... Can't find a review anywhere.
  13. I love TI Jazz Flats. The only slight downside for me was having the truss rod barely engaged, which seemed to emphasize the G string dead spot, even on a graphite reinforced neck. Otherwise I use Chromes ECB-81s, not too much stiffer, and sound great. Cobalt Flats also fab if you need the twang to still be present! If you don't kill strings quickly with sweat, there's no need these days to have to deal with finger-wrecking rounds!
  14. The problem is not with weight or straps, it's my right shoulder, and I'm right-handed. Just the position and movement of the 'modified' arm causes a great deal of pain. It's 95% ok when sitting down. It may, repeat may, settle in time. I did not take the offered gig, I'm not about to subject myself to that level of torture. I am still hopeful of getting the jazz trio off the ground, and that's a seated gig by design. Just got to find that mythical pianist! Edited to add: I do have the Kinsman stool, but it doesn't work for me, head-wise, in a rock band, where I want to be bopping about. Basically, bopping ist verboten! So I'd rather sit and be mellow. 😁
