  1. TL:DR - It's great, can't wait to try it in a gig situation. I bought this cab from @wayne58 of this parish a couple of weeks ago. Always loved the look of them and this one was dangerously close to home, so I took the plunge. Cameron was a pleasure to deal with and the cab is immaculate. Lovely bit of oxblood cloth too, it's a looker. I've had the chance to try it out at a couple of rehearsals now. The Polished Knob (no, really) in Todmorden should have been its gig debut tonight but extended restrictions meant we were two days too early and the pub had to cancel. So it's rehearsal room only impressions with my rootmaster 500 head and Sandberg tm5. So far it gives me the sound I've had in my head for years. Fat without booming, clear without harsh treble. Deep without mud. I got it because I wanted to move more air without turning up. I was after more presence, if that's the right word, and it certainly does that. Happy boy.

    Bought Cam's TKS cab in a super easy deal. Great communication and the cab itself is in superb condition. A great guy to deal with.
  3. Jo bought my Barefaced cab. Super easy sale and a great bloke. Thanks!
  4. Cheers! It's not the prettiest from the back, but only the drummer sees that side!
  5. For sale (no trades thanks). My brilliant Barefaced Two 10 cab with cloth grille and Barefaced cover. Small, light, and seriously loud. Never been pushed (I doubt the good folk at the Dog & Doris would appreciate me getting anywhere near full beans through this cab!). I've used it with a variety of amps (currently an Ashdown Rootmaster 500), it sounds sweet with all of them and puts out stupid amounts of volume. Barefaced reckon it can replace a 4x10 and you can see why. Can be used portrait or landscape - I've found it excellent vertically on small stages for hearing myself even when standing right next to it - really good off-axis dispersion. Weight 13kg. Dimensions 38cm 61cm 33cm Broadband sensitivity 98dB Power Handling 400W Max Output ~125dB Frequency Range 30Hz - 6kHz Impedance 4 Ohms This is the non-switchable early model and has suffered from the dreaded 'tolex peel' on the back which means that it isn't a looker from the back. I have the Barefaced glue that is included with the sale. I've tried to use it once and it didn't do much to be fair, so I've gone for the old faithful gaffa tape solution. The price reflects the condition of the tolex. The handle is in tip-top condition! All feet present and correct. Collection from Sale, South Manchester, M33. Or I can meet halfway within reasonable distance. If you want it shipped then It's at your own risk and arrangement. I don't have packaging so I'd really rather not. Cheers!

  8. Great musicians but much prefer the original. This feels like they're trying to fill every single micro beat and pause that gave the song its original flow. Also, ducking the mf, if you're going to cover it, cover it!
  9. Took me ages to get us a booking at a great pub in my old home town. That gig should've been tonight. It would have been pre Xmas packed and my folks, uncles, aunts, cousins etc would all have been there too. Balls.
  10. Upgraded 2011 21.5 iMac. 2.5Ghz i5 CPU 240Gb SSD - new during lockdown 1 12Gb RAM - 8Gb new during lockdown 1 The SSD has given this machine a new lease of life. It boots really quickly, apps load without lag. The expanded RAM means that it can handle large applications running. These upgrades cost around £200 6 months ago. Factory reset running High Sierra. Comes with the original mac wireless keyboard and mouse. In very good used condition - full disclosure there is a scratch in the upper right of the screen. I didn't spot it until I was prepping the Mac for sale, it never showed up in use. I've tried my best to show it in the pic. A fantastic machine for the money, socially distanced inspection welcome. Collection from Sale, South Manchester or I can deliver within a reasonable distance.
  11. Three watches for sale. All in good used condition. Sekonda & Danish Design need new batteries. Garmin Fenix 5s plus. Top end sports watch. Think of an activity and you can probably track it on this. Heart rate, steps, sleep, multi sport. Smartwatch alerts, Spotify music on your wrist - the lot. Boxed with. charging cable, spare strap etc. Great condition, comes with screen protector in place. £220 - SOLD Sekonda 3325 CMX. Diver style watch. Blue face with orange accent minute & second hands. 200m water resistance. A few very minor signs of use. Looks way more expensive than it has any right to. £25 - SOLD Danish Design IQ13Q975. Black dress watch. Excellent condition, no marks and only worn a few times. The pic makes it look like the back is scratched but that's just the plastic film that I never removed. £190 on Amazon. £80 here. Collection from Sale, South Manchester or I can post at cost.
  12. 2 x Levy's leather straps. Approx 114cm - 135 cm adjustable. A few minor scuffs as shown in the pics. Not the padded versions. £10 each Loxx straplocks - silver. 2 sets. Long (34mm) or short (27mm) screws, your choice. £10 each. Collection from Sale, South Manchester or I can post at cost.
  13. I've had a Maru (passive Jake 5L) and currently have a Sandberg (VM5). Both very, very good basses. For me the Sandberg shades it, possibly because I prefer the P/M pickup config over the P/J of the Maru. The necks were quite similar, quite shallow compared to other fivers I've played and super easy to play. Again, I'd probably say that the Sandberg is a fraction better for me. Of course YMMV.
  14. Just continue the road to its end - someone's already sorted your merch too!
