  1. Billy Sheehan and his sound.......

    couldnt imagine him without 'his' sound and its something he has worked on perfecting unlike his looks
  2. [quote name='JellyKnees' timestamp='1509467834' post='3399189'] Why does she need complimenting? [/quote] nobody 'needs' complimenting but last time i checked most people seem to like it
  3. [quote name='JellyKnees' timestamp='1509467725' post='3399182'] I have a big nose. Would you entitle a video of me playing some heavy dub bass ' Big nose, Big sound', and if so, why not? [/quote] er because that...... WOULDNT BE A COMPLIMENT
  4. clearly she gives alot of thought to her appearance however irrelevent to her playing skills. the fact that some see themselves as above others i find offensive
  5. [quote name='dyerseve' timestamp='1509440671' post='3398840'] To those who think me complimenting this young ladies appearance is any way a negative thing, you guys need to get out from behind your keyboards and spend some time in the real world and spend time interacting with real people in real life scenarios. Maybe then you will have a more balanced and realistic outlook on life as well as how and when offence is meant and caused. [/quote] [quote name='RockfordStone' timestamp='1509441373' post='3398847'] [size=4][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]lets also be honest, if a video of tom hardy playing guitar was posted amongst a mostly female audience base, do you think they would instantly compliment his guitar playing? would they f***[/font] [font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]OP, you haven't done anything wrong, we live in a world were people are so quick to find offence in everything on other peoples behalf you are not allowed to have an opinion.[/font][/size] [/quote] this holier-than-thou attitude gets my goat, you cant make a nice comment without someone jumping down your throat liked the playing, guitar and lady/woman/girl (bases covered) OP you were not in the wrong here
  6. [quote name='FinnDave' timestamp='1509366912' post='3398329'] I changed to Rootmasters after years of ABMs simply because of the size and weight, which probably isn't an issue for anyone who hasn't injured their right hand! Very satisfied with the sound and power of the Rootmaster, though. [/quote] yeah perfectly happy with the sound i get from my RM800 no urge to change
  7. been using ashdown for years and never had a muddy sound, the higher end rootmasters are great littlw amps not lacking in heft, but word says that the ABMs are a step up
  8. Ashdown Rootmaster RM 500 1x15 Combo

    the rootmaster amps are excellent, not played the combo though but love the sound of mine. Yeah trying to read the front panel on a dark stage is impossible but it does look cool.
  9. New Ashdown amp

    does it have plenty of Headdoom?
  10. Flamed Bubinga ? (One for the luthiers ? )

    [quote name='Hellzero' timestamp='1508527346' post='3392833'] Looking at your wood, [/quote] seriously no-one is going to jump on this? <----or that lovely looking bass btw
  11. Ashdown fan club

    I've been impressed with my ashdown gear ever since i bought the mag 300 2x10 combo. moved up to a mag 300 head and 4x10 cab then the head got sick and would drop sound when playing live (must get it to a tech to have a look at as it would make a great back up) so bought an RM 800 and that is awesome, you'd never know it was class D other than its size. Definate fan boy cant see myself using anything else to be honest.
  12. NBD: My SR range continues

    [quote name='Al Krow' timestamp='1506406982' post='3378427'] Also is the 19mm string spacing on the BTB 5s a bit wider than typical for basses or is it in line with "standard" and it's actually the 16.5mm on the SR 5s that is more closely spaced than the norm? [/quote] i'm a bit late to the party here not been on for a while the 19mm spacing is what ibanez use on their 4 string basses and on the SRs go down to a 16.5mm spacing, probably to keep the neck small and fast where as they have stuck with the wider spacing on the 5 string BTBs. the spacing on my SR1805 was what i found hardest to get used to after my SR500 but its pretty much there now and the 500 doesnt really come out of the gig bag now. and like youve all said the premiums are insane value for money.

    have a look at this if you havent already seen it, might help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YarWwi7gRqI
  14. Ashdown mag 410 cabs.

    cant comment on the black speaker versions but the blue ones (still made in china not uk though) are excellent, loud poky punchy but bloody heavy i'd also like another one. well worth the money as ive been using mine for years with no issues at all. only down side is the cheap plastic corners dont last and you need to replace them with metal ones but thats a minor thing the important part is they sound great.
  15. Punters Don't Know The Difference

    if i thought making do was enough then i wouldnt do it at all. but i'm not bereft of mistakes but as you say thats not the point of this one. we had a gig at a wedding at the weekend, hot sweaty venue we gave it our all and the audience reciprocated. and i hope it comes across at every gig we do. yeah some bum notes but great reaction from all at the end, job done.
