  1. Earlier in the year I contacted a load of new (to us) venues with our details and availability. As expected I didn't hear back from most of them - that's generally the form for getting gigs. I know the score and try to chase up and personally visit as many places as I can but can't make it everywhere. Today I've had messages from 3 of them saying that their band has pulled out and are we available?
  2. Mxm's Feedback

    Bought a phone from Matthew from the sell anything board. Super easy, even though I had to shoot off to beat the snow. Thanks!
  3. Harder to get pub gigs?

    We do about a gig a month, so finding gigs isn't the huge task that it is for some bands. I'm lucky that we're all on the same page with regards to committment. However 2018 is the first year I've not managed to have the diary sorted well in advance. I'm still fishing around for a couple of gigs to fill gaps. A few places have been positive but have said that they need to wait until budgets come through to confirm, not sure if that's a blow off or a genuine thing. Never heard it before though.
  4. For sale, my 2010 MacBook Pro. 2.4 GHz dual core processor, 4gb RAM, 256gb Hard drive. Comes with case and a new power supply bought in November. Will be sold with a fresh install of Mac OS ready for you to set up for your own needs. It works fine but has been been well used and loved, there are some cosmetic scratches on the bottom and a ding in one corner that I’ve shown on the pics. I have had a screen fault where the right half of the screen semi pixelates. You can still see what’s on screen, it’s fixed by adjusting the angle of the screen and only happens very rarely. I had the MacBook on for a good few hours to format the hard drive and this didn’t happen so I couldn’t get pics of it. Collection from Sale, South Manchester, meet up within reasonable distance or can post at buyer’s risk/expense etc. Cheers, Andy
  5. Backdrops - worth it?

    The full propaganda rig - backdrop and 2 pull up banners (the rest of the band call them the ‘Nuremburgs’).
  6. Backdrops - worth it?

    We use a combination of a traditional backdrop and a couple of the pull up exhibition style ones. The pull ups are miles quicker and easier to set up. They were made for us by Al at Signs by AlYerPal (he's on Facebook under that business name). We provided our own designs but he can help with that too. Prices are very good, I've recommended him to quite a few folk who've all been very happy.
  7. GILLY

    Will bought a cab from me. Ideal as a buyer, great comms and very helpful to deal with. Thanks
  8. Cheers Adam. Gigged with it last weekend, whilst it's not as loud it rounds off the tone and suits the band much better. Probably only me who notices though! Glad you're enjoying the SC, it's a great cab.
  9. For sale (no trades thanks unless it's an oly white 5 string P bass type) my G2 Barefaced Compact. A brilliant cab, you get out what you put in, it's stupidly light and ridiculously loud. This is the gen 2 15" speaker version. I've owned it from new and it's in excellent condition. I've given it the once over and can only find one tiny chip which I've tried to show in the pics. It comes with a roqsolid cover which is in good condition and has been used to keep the cab in whenever it's not in use. The handle is in good condition and I've also got a few spare feet that I'll throw in. I'm only selling because the retro Two 10 tone suits my band better. You can hear some sound clips of the cab as part of my gig rig at my band FB page facebook.com/jumpthesharkband. I'd much rather sell via collection or meet up as I don't have suitable packaging to ship. Based in Sale, South Manchester. Thanks for looking.
  10. Maruszczyk Thunderbirds!!! (Phoenix)

    [quote name='BigRedX' timestamp='1510328801' post='3405669'] Unfortunately the 5-string version is currently just an idea for the future. [/quote] My wallet just heaved a sigh of relief. Looks like the kids will be getting Xmas presents this year after all
  11. Barefaced Single Two 10 or 2 x One 10's

    Have done, they've been very helpful. Cheers!
  12. Maruszczyk Jake PJ (WITHDRAWN)

    I have a 5 string version of this bass that I took a chance on when it came up on the for sale board here. If this one is anywhere near as good then it's a belter and well worth a look. GLWTS
  13. Barefaced Single Two 10 or 2 x One 10's

    I've just picked up a used two 10 and it has a bit of the dreaded tolex peel. I've searched here but can't find anything and the other bass forum mentions contact cement but a quick Google comes up with regular cement. Does anyone have any advice about how to fix this? At the moment I'm thinking 3m 77 or 90 contact adhesive. Cheers!
  14. The HandBox Amplification thread

    OK, I don't do this much so be gentle. A pub standard with my R-400 set pretty flat, contour at about 10 o'clock through a Barefaced compact (15") and super compact. Maruszczyk PJ bass - full P, J at about 20%. Yes, I hit every gear related branch as I tumbled from the Basschat GAS tree. No DI - just a pretty decent unidirectional mic.
