  1. We had a punter at one venue who messaged us with a request two weeks before the gig. Even better was that the song was in the set anyway so it got played!
  2. We do unless the venue specifically requests us not to. We're an 80s covers band too so the playlist reflects this. It helps set the mood. I also use it to sneak in tunes we're thinking of adding to the set so I can see how they go down.
  3. Hi Les, I've had a fiver for a while as it solved the faffing around detuning to drop d for some of our songs. D'Addario nickels 125-45 are pretty light without being useless, but I've got DR neons on at the mo to fit with the 80s theme. Notes played on the low b do have a certain thicker 'quality' that the same notes on the E don't. I tend to play a bit higher up for that extra little clarity, however it does make running the fretboard lots easier when I use it properly.
  4. I've got a cloth fronted two-10. Regularly take it to & from gigs & rehearsals in the car. Always use a cover and am careful to point the cloth side at a side wall of the car boot just to be extra careful. Never had any damage, bit I don't think there's any extra protection behind the cloth.
  5. Good to see my old Maruszczyk finding a new home. Cracking bass.
  6. R400 and Barefaced two 10. Teeny weeny footprint, enormous sound, weighs less than a duck. 😁
  7. Selling a cycling jersey on Facebook. Ad title is pretty much 'Cycling Jersey - size large'. Description repeats this and gives example of how it fits as this brand runs smaller than most. Enquiry 1 'Do you have this in extra small?' Enquiry 2 Them: Is this available? Me 5 mins later: Yes 48 hours pass Them: Good, will you post it for asking price minus £x? Me 5 mins later: No, but I will for asking price minus £y 36 hours pass Them: OK, what's your PayPal? Me 5 mins later: It's xxxxxxxx 72 hours pass Me: Hello? 24 hours pass Them: I've bought a new one instead.
  8. You don't realise how important this is until you've had to perform several diving saves having put the amp down and set off back to unload the rest of the kit from the car!
  9. I've got one already and even so I had to convince myself I didn't need it! This one looks like it's got properly recessed butterfly clips so it can stand up on edge, unlike my early model.
  10. Exactly. The walkabout was great but wasn't as versatile as the handbox for me. Of course, YMMV.
  11. That's the one I bought. I run it into barefaced two 10 and it's brilliant, worth every banana! After a few years of revolving door amps I've still got this one, which says a lot. I sold my Mesa walkabout once I'd bought this.
  12. It is indeed a cracker and deserves a good home. Have a bump!
  13. We don't mike everything up so I use them as a sort of augmented earplug. I run the kick drum, bass and all 4 vocals through the desk so I can have a bit 'more me' in my ears to help me hit harmonies etc whilst keeping the beat and hearing the lead vocal properly. Cymbals etc get picked up through the drummer's headset mic and the guitar is usually loud enough without needing a boost, so it works for me.
  14. We have the 312 as tops that we run with a single 15" sub. Very happy with them. Haven't got much experience in comparison with what you have but they are absolutely fine for our usual pub and occasional slightly bigger gigs.
  15. Ewood Park! Yep, Jump The Shark technically become a stadium band when we trot out at Blues Bar, Blackburn Rovers on May 18th (one gig a month gives us quite a lead in time to our 'next' show).
