  1. This is only happening on BC but down in the bottom left corner I get this continuous flickering "Read.m.stripe.network" while at the same time the refresh icon in the browser menu bar is fickering between "refresh" and "stop". Why? Any ideas?
  2. Here we go again. When we moved west last year I was pretty convinced that my band days were over however I kept an eye on Bandmix, etc. just to see what was going on. Nothing much of interest apart from the usual metal, punk and function bands. That was until a couple of week ago when something interesting came up. A guitarist looking for vocalist, bass and drums to form an Americana style band. I met up with him yesterday and we hit it off straight away. Like me he's retired and has very similar musical tastes and ideas - Tom Petty, John Fogerty, Linda Ronstadt, Steve Earle, Jackson Browne, etc. . It was interesting that he didn't want to dip into the pool of exisiting local musicians as he knew that they would drag the venture back into rock covers so as a newcomer to the area I was very welcome. He has a second guitarist lined up so now we need to find a like minded vocalist and drummer. I'm not holdng my breath but it's a start. Next step is an initial jam.
  3. Sounds interesting but unfortunately "Access Denied"
  4. Get a lead made with Sommer LLX cable and Neutrik NP (Professional) connectors. Top specification. It doesn't kink or curl, doesn't remember it's been coiled and lays out flat on the floor when you unwind it.
  5. BassChatter ? - Yes and a Bassworlder before that, about 20 years in all. Old age - 75 but still a teenager at heart Married ? - to my soul mate for 41 years. White ? - After the winter and lockdown, yes, but tends to darken a bit when out in the sun or the strong westerly winds. Bass level ? - getting lower as each year passes.

  7. a. I have these on my own board In most cases you cannot see both ends of the cable so it doesn't really matter unless you have severe OCD, just be ure to put them all the same way round. The first cables I started making for sale were adaptors to go from Boss 2.1mm co-ax plug to EH 3.5mm jack. Initially I would solder both connectors but then I realised that by buying a moulded male to female 2.1mm extension lead and by using 300mm from each end I could make a male Boss to 3.5mm jack and a female Boss to 3.5mm jack for only half the effort. The offcuts were kept for one-off custom dc leads. b. A small multimeter is essential to check and test the final result. I used to buy almost all my bits for these from CPC/Farnell. Get them to send you a catalogue, it makes great reading.
  8. I think you'll find that it's 1+ and 2+ at the amp end and normal 1+ and 1- at the cabinet.
  9. We spent the last year in limbo waiting to sell and move. Since we got here we've got planning permission for an extension and internal changes so we're back in limbo again waiting for a builder to become available. Due to lockdown we've not been able to get out and about and the weather has been dreadful but hey ho lockdown is ending and the summer is coming and hopefully the temperature will rise so things are looking up. Absolutely no regrets at all. 😁
  10. I still have a few bits so could convert to right-angle Speakon if you want.
  11. I only ever used Klotz LY240 4-sq.mm. Subwoofer cable.

  14. Fischer Amps ButtKicker Mini LFE and Universl Mount. Clamp it to your chair or stool and really feel the bass. 4-ohm impedance and works between 50 - 250-watts.

  15. Artec SE-PEQ Parametric Eq Pedal. As new in original box. £25 posted
  16. It,s a custom job made in China. Has 3 wires but seeing as there are no schematics available and I, ver never been able to charge it properly I don't know exactly what voltage it is supposed to be. It has 3 terminals so dual voltage. If I can get a working one I can find out. One idea is to use it as the basis for a DIY project.
  17. Thanks for the info @bigRedX. I was going to send it to the Netherlands however this doesn't seem like a good plan at the moment. I bought this Backbeat on the Forum a few years ago . Apparently it was one of the early Crowdfunded Backbeats some of which have developed a known fault which means the whole board and possibly the battery need changing i.e. over 50% of the parts need replacing. I've been in contact with Backbeat and they can send me a replacement board from the USA which I could fit but there is no guarantee that my battery has not been damaged, however they cannot send me a replacement battery unless it is inside a piece of equipment, so the only way is to send the whole thing back to the USA and have it updated. So I am in a bit of dilemma. 1. Buy a new board and hope that the battery is OK - $130 plus duty plus admin plus VAT 2. Send it to the Netherlands and deal with all the extra paperwork - 145 Euro plus postage plus admin plus possibly VAT on its return. 3. Send it to the USA with hopefully simpler paperwork. $130 plus shipping to USA plus admin plus possiblt VAT on its return. 4. Put it back in its box and wait for the world to settle and buy a new one. £334.00 Regretably I'm thinking option 4 is probably the best and easiest option.
  18. Fischer Amps In-Ear Stick Headphone Amp. " The In-Ear Stick is designed for use on stage, or in the studio, and can handle balanced mono as well as unbalanced stereo signals. Thanks to a Neutrik combo input, you can connect an XLR or a jack cable. It has a mini jack output, making it suitable for any set of in-ear headphones. Fischer Amps made sure to equip the In-Ear Stick with a limiter so you don't run the risk of damaging your eardrums. "
