  1. Hi all, I’ve seen conflicting reports on this online, so looking a definite ‘yes’ or ‘no’ if possible. Do the various iterations of the Helix (Helicies?) allow for two inputs? I know some of them have a stereo input, but could this be used as two mono inputs, say for fretted and fretless or bass and EUB?
  2. Could it be a Overwater by Tanglewood?
  3. Procured a Markbass cab off Gareth and he was a delight to deal with - responsive, helpful and even offered to brave a notorious dogging spot to meet up - eventually the cab had to be posted and it was really well packed and sent via a reputable courier. 11/10.
  4. I was playing yesterday afternoon/evening in the local shopping centre with the orchestra I play with - playing Christmas tunes and more uptempo stuff. Owing to the way we were set up, I was out on the left wing and so open to the tender mercies of punters as they ran for shop to shop. First was a lady with what looked like a mummified corpse in a wheelchair, but turned out to be her elderly chain smoking mother. “Do you have a drummer?” She asked. “Only, I play the drums.” “Yes,” I replied, gesturing to the actual drummer sat behind his kit, as well as the full section of percussionists. “Oh,” she said - “I can sing as well.” Rapidly changing tack (having realised her dreams of stardom were fading), she asked “what make of bass is that?”, and then answered herself, most unexpectedly - “ah, its a Warwick Streamer. Nice. I’ve got one of those.” She then took her mum off for a wheel, leaving me nonplussed. Second was the little old lady who came up mid-tune, rapped her watch, and asked if we were going to be much longer? Finally, an honourable mention to the chap who let his labrador off it’s lead to run into the orchestra as we were playing, nearly knocking me over, as “it just wanted to see what was going on...”
  5. Both of those are on repeat round here! These are pretty good too: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Christmas-Present-Motown-1/dp/B00005Q8UC/ref=asc_df_B00005Q8UC/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310739891430&hvpos=1o7&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10804467138392042632&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006567&hvtargid=pla-774051453992&psc=1
  6. I had a problem with TNT via interparcel - late to collect, then after repeated chases, refused to deliver, citing the fact they didn’t have a depot in the area. When I pointed out their depot was less than half a mile for the recipient’s address, they cancelled the order and sent the item back to me. Morons.
  7. And it appears they go down to 2 ohms...

  9. Oh dear, sorry to hear it’s been a rough time Nick - hope all is now well with you though.
  10. I sold mine for much more than this. It’s a bargain. You could buy this and fit a decent preamp for less than a new Squier.
  11. MSL are the distributor and their recommended service agent is Real Electronics in Sheffield: https://mslpro.co.uk/customer-support/
  12. Had this happen again this weekend, and i think in hindsight it is down to a change in temp - amp came out of ‘mancave’ into car and pressed straight into service and started cutting out. Cranked it up and suddenly came back to life, deafening everyone around me! Turned off and on again, and worked fine thereafter. Looks like a call to the distributor... 😭
  13. If it wouldn’t cost me more in petrol to get there and back I’d bite your arm off for one of these.
  14. I can’t stop looking at this bass. It really is probably the most lovely thing I’ve seen in years. Absolutely stunning.
