  1. This one on the other hand... I'd say that's how it's done!
  2. I can't say I'm a fan of it either. It just doesn't seem to gel musically. I've seen much better, but I've also seen much worse!
  3. Top service from Neotech. First one of mine started to split where the foam meets to rubber at the horn end, so bought another as I’d had a couple of years and a lot of use from it. The replacement failed within 8 months, so I emailed them about the warranty and mentioned that it was the replacement for the other which lasted much longer. Lovely lady on the other end of the emails in America said they’ve since changed the design and they haven’t been sent to UK distributors yet, send me address and she’ll get one in the post, and I just need to destroy mine and send a photo of it. Two days later, two brand new ones land on my doormat and I haven’t had to even consider using the second one yet.
  4. I keep the majority of my gear in my lockup, but this sits at the back only coming out occasionally. With the rona hitting my gigs and I’m financially cutting back where I can, I want to reduce my unit size until I’ve got a house with a garage, so this is first in line as I haven’t properly gigged it since 2016. The head lives at home though so I can use it every now and again just to make sure the pots remain clean and such.
  5. A very good point to consider! All of mine are screwed direct into brick or studding. If you've got poor walls, I certainly would NOT recommend wall hanging!
  6. I use wall hangers, and when on stage my stands are the Hercules hanger sort. Never had any issues... You often get people talking about how you should never hang any guitar or bass by the neck, but I've NEVER had any issue, and some of them have been hung on the wall untouched for long periods of time (I'm talking over a year), and are still absolutely fine. On top of that, you often see top end builders and showrooms keeping their instruments on wall hangers as well. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me!
  7. I moved in with my girlfriend for isolation. She works in legal and is just working from home 9-5, whereas I've only got little bits of work as gigging is my main income, though my local pub I'm entertainment manager for so we're all behind the scenes sorting out live streams to put on our page to still entertain the masses and help our acts out a bit. So far I've fully cleaned and detailed (extreme cleaning / polishing) her stepdad's car, and the next one on the list is her mum's car. We've got our exercise in as well as she lives pretty much on a greenbelt, so ten minute walk out of the door and we're in the countryside. Same with where I live to be fair! Other than that, not much has really happened. She's looking at me enviously whilst I'm still in a dressing gown in bed on my laptop whilst she's taking business calls
  8. I'm a musician full time, and I'm the events manager for a local venue on the side. I'm also a sound engineer, and make bespoke instrument cables. You can imagine how today has been for me!
  9. That's me also and definitely f***ed then
  10. I lost over £1k of work on Friday, and another £1k went in a single message today too. It's not looking good, most of my gigs are to sizeable crowds and music is my full time occupation. To say I've had it is potentially an understatement.
  11. Ideally want to sell this complete, but can split if the money’s right. The head is an Acoustic Model 126, sounds great, works as it should. Had it checked over and serviced a couple of years ago, has worked without issue since. Good condition for its age, though the case lacks a handle. They’re easy enough to sort, I just never got round to it. The cab is a 406, 2x15 4 Ohm cab. Shifts some serious air and isn’t actually too impractical. Has two heavy duty kick back wheels on it, with decent handles at the top, so very easy to transport. Even stairs and getting it into cars has been pretty easy. Very good condition, with only a few age related marks. Comes with what seems to be (I think) it’s original vinyl cover. If not, it suits the period and it isn’t in a bad state. I’m after £500 for the complete rig, naturally collection only from Rochdale / Barnsley, but I go all over the place with gigs so there’s a chance I could also meet with it.
