    Good evening, Rui, and ... Plenty to read and amuse you here, and lots to learn and share.

  3. Is there an adapter to convert from mini-jack to normal jack..? These can be delicate for some headsets. Another detail... Are you sure it's a stereo headset, with only TRS (Tip, Ring, Sleeve...) contacts, and not a more modern 'phone-type, with an extra ring for mic or volume control..? These work for 'phones and some laptops, but need a different converter for normal, stereo, jack sockets such as your interface. Just a thought.
  4. Looks and sounds nice, but looking it up, I see 2000€. I'm out.
  5. Perhaps not, if they pay out £1200 if it gets busted or 'lost'. How would one know..? That's the problem, really; many shippers apparently don't pay up.

  7. What are these 'pedals' of which you speak..?
  8. It's the power valves that are most at risk; the pre-amp valves should be OK, and can stay in their sockets. A higher risk, though, is the weight of the transformers in there, in case of a hard knock, such as dropping the amp. This weight can rip the trannies from the chassis, or twist/bend the chassis. There's not a lot one can do to protect against this except make sure the amps aren't dropped..! For my part, I'd take the amps myself, and make a day of it..! I did this recently with my Hiwatt, taking it for repair implied a 300 km round trip. I have to go back shortly to collect my Fender Bassman 50, waiting for me after overhaul since Christmas. Now that the French curfew is extended to 21h00, I can plan such a trip. I wouldn't want to send my amps by courrier if I could do it any other way, and it's cheaper..! Your move may vary, naturally.
  9. I'd like a very well-equipped PC, with my favourite software installed, and a fast, reliable, interweb access. I could keep a beady eye open on the BC shenanigans with that, in between composing or playing with virtual trains. Solar-powered, naturally.
  10. Maybe, but be aware that you're on very, very thin ice.

  12. The reason it's so difficult is because the UK side didn't want to allow reciprocal arrangements.
