Total Watts

  1. A DAW would be fine, but I've no interface nor the ability to afford one right now. If I ever get gigging again, then worth getting something more flexible than the Sessioncake.
  2. Cake has arrived! Hmm, New Cake Day? Anyhoo, with a bit of getting to know you, it does the job just fine. Agreed about @neepheidpoint re external power, but I'm using IKEA rechargeables, which are rebadged Eneloops, and much cheaper.
  3. I might just get one of these if things look up a bit.
  4. I've little doubt that the BFOne10 will be just fine, it always the amps...The Elf has only been used half a dozen times in total!
  5. And this reminds me, I haven't switched on my rig for over a year, better dust it off and make sure it's OK!
  6. Sessioncake 02 (with mic input) found and ordered! As usual, the BC hive mind is the font of all knowledge! Doubtless, I'll no sooner get it rigged up, and a string will break... Can't wait!
  7. The Yamaha looks just the ticket, thanks! Would love the GB-10, but can no longer justify such a gadget, let alone actually afford it!
  8. I don't gig any more due to spinal deformity, and haven't picked up my bass for over a year. Having dug up a little inspiration, I find my Tascam MP-BT1 is complete toast. Rats. Any suggestions for a cheapie alternative, that I can connect headphones and line-in to?
  9. This bit is the least of your worries! Didn't start in The Rock n Roll Outlaws until 55, and cracked it for 12 years! It really is what you play, and we played what they wanted to hear. Works every time. Sorry to hear about your back issues, quite similar to mine at the start. Tip: if you end up down the road of fusion and extending that fusion, make sure they keep your lumbar curve intact. It's failure to do this that has finished me off, and trying to fix it now is pretty desperate, tbh. Don't let it get that bad. If they can fix that with me without making anything else worse, then I might, just might, be able to start again. Assuming they agree even to try...
  10. Standing is one of the big no-nos, and has been for a while. I'll not sell the P-bass, ever, even if I don't use it. Bass uke...Hmmm, will check some out. Much appreciated, everyone. I do hope that they can do something. The main problem is that other surgeries have removed the curve in my lumbar spine, which means I'm falling forward all the time. As there's not much left of the lower back muscles after 5 dissections, it's very difficult and painful to stay upright, despite lots of core work. One of the struts, as it were, is simply not there. If they can bang some titanium cages into the gaps where discs once were, well and good, they might be able to restore some of the curve. But this means breaking apart a fusion that melds L2 to L5. It's a big, delicate job. And it might leave me paralysed, like any back surgery. But nothing to lose, what, because that's the end game anyhow. Sinsonido...hmmm.
  11. That's it, I'm done. No more playing. Physically disintegrating, more major spinal work a possibility. Left shoulder now packing up too. Time to walk away. Even have to do that on sticks now. When I can bear it, stuff will be appearing in the Marketplace... Cheers, y'all, it's been great.
  12. Yes, I do keep watching it... I imagined shw was a similar age to REM, ie younger than me, but no she's OLD!
