  1. Roland Micro Cube Bass RX Bass Amp £105 Posted I purchased this great little amp a few years ago and is in very good condition. It really is the perfect home practice amp because it gives you every option possible, like quiet practice with headphones, you can play along with MP3’s from your computer or phone via the AUX in, it has a variety of DRUM PATTERNS which allows you to set the tempo, it has eight amps to choose from, it also has REVERB, DELAY, CHORUS, FLANGER, and T_WAH all built in, plus a built in TUNER and COMPRESSOR. You are welcome to try it out at my home in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, or you can try it out in my garage if you prefer to be outside. It comes from a smoke free and pet free home. Rhythm Guide The metronome is a music-student s best friend, but that numbing clank, clank, clank can get irksome. That s where the MICRO CUBE BASS RX's Rhythm Guide comes in handy. It s like having a drummer inside your amp. Choose from an assortment of groovin patterns to practice with. Improve your timing while having a more enjoyable musical experience, or just have fun jamming along to the beats. Outputs The Phones/Recording output serves two purposes Plug in a set of headphones and enjoy private practice with lush, stereo sound, or plug directly into a stereo mixer or recording device for accurate signal transfer directly from the MICRO CUBE BASS RX.

  2. I saw them at the Rainbow in 1974 and they were supported by Hustler, it cost £1 in the stalls. I really liked Queen from the off, and still do, but the night I saw them, they were not great at all, I thought Hustler were the better band on the night. Personally, I think it wasn't until after Band Aid that they really started to be a really great "live" band.
  3. Great to see that you are enjoying the mandolin Neil, I was really sad to see it go, but after severing my tendons in a DIY accident, playing a mandolin is now impossible. 😐
  4. GENUINE FORD FIESTA SPACE-SAVER WHEEL & TYRE T 125/80 R15 95M This is a genuine Ford unused spare wheel and tyre. £35 Posted £25 Collected from my home in Bridgnorth, Shropshire.
  5. IBANEZ AE245-NT Electro-Acoustic Guitar Now £185 POSTED! This is a steal for such a lovely guitar. I purchased this a couple of year's ago for just under £400 and have hardly played it, and since severing a couple of tendons in my hand, I now have restricted movement and find guitars impossible to play anymore. This is a lovely guitar that is in absolutely mint condition for half the new price. I will ship it in its original box. Everything you need to know about the guitar can be found here: https://www.ibanez.com/usa/products/detail/ae245_1x_04.html
  6. Chris bought a drum machine from me and everything went through so smoothly. Thanks for a pleasant transaction.
  7. Just purchased a lovely Mustang bass from Elliott, it arrived very well packaged and in great condition. Thanks for a pleasant transaction
  8. Please forgive me if I've got the "wrong end of the stick" here, but I thought that the shorter scale length resulted in looser strings, not stiffer 🤔
  9. 👍 Thanks for all the comments and info everyone. I've taken the plunge and have a Mustang on the way to me, but I still can't decide what strings to try on it. 🤔 The style of music I will be playing is "old-school" R&B/Pub rock covering bands like Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero, The Inmates, The Pirates, etc.
  10. I copied and pasted a description of the Band Creator, I didn't notice that part and don't know whether its true or not, so I have edited that part out of my post. 😉
  11. I use flats on my P basses which I like, but I'm wondering whether would flats on a short scale would sound a bit dull? 🤔
  12. Thanks for the info, I've just been on the Newtone website and the Axiom Bass VI at £16 a set are the cheapest of all their sets, and much less than what I usually pay for a set of bass strings, so I would be happy to buy them and bin the other two strings. Do you think they would work well on a Mustang? I tried a one a few years ago and whilst I liked it, the low string tension put me off buying it.
  13. Another thread has highlighted the increase in shorties recently and better string quality was mentioned as a possible reason for their growing popularity. So what are the best strings for a short scale bass nowadays? If there are strings out there that have decent tension and won't sound flabby, I could well be tempted to get myself a Mustang. 🤔

  17. DigiTech Trio Band Creator Now £65 Posted I purchased this pedal brand new around 18 months ago for £149.95 and have used it about five or six times at most. It's in excellent condition and comes complete with power supply. The Digitech Trio is a unique pedal which gives guitarists the ability to create bass and drum parts easily in a variety of styles by simply playing and 'teaching' the pedal any chord progression. It truly is a revalation for guitar practice and performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCQaaf4Xfbk

    Reaper Query

    When I click on the FX button in Reaper the category window is partially hidden behind the main window making it hard to see the category list properly. I've uninstalled and re-installed many times but it still keeps happening, does anyone else experience this problem? I'm running the Reaper 64bit version on a MacBook Pro (2015) High Sierra
  20. SOLD! SAMSON C01U USB Studio Condenser Microphone SOLD! Now SOLD! Bought this brand new a few years ago and hardly ever used it, its been stored in its bag and has discoloured a little bit in places but generally in good condition. Comes with mic stand adaptor and cloth bag.
  21. BLACKSTAR HT-5R MK1 Valve Combo Amp + Footswitch SOLD! I purchased this great little amp a few years ago to use at home but I have hardly used it, and I’m selling it now because I severed two tendons in my hand a few months ago which now makes playing a guitar extremely difficult, I can still get by on bass, but this amp, along with all my guitars are now of no use to me. There is a very small tear in the covering which I have repaired, I've circled it in the photo of the front, but it is hardly noticeable, and other than that, it is in excellent condition. You are very welcome to come and try it at my home in Bridgnorth, Shropshire (if Covid-19 rules permit), or you can try it outside in my garage or sheltered pergola where I have power supplied. Features Include: · Innovative 5 Watt valve combo · 1xECC83 and 1x12BH7 valves · Unique push pull power amp design · Award winning HT Pedal preamp · Two footswitchable channels · 12" Blackbird 50 custom designed speaker · Enhanced tone controls · Patented Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) · Fully equipped for studio or practice · Digital Stereo Reverb · Speaker emulated output with 1x12 or 4x12 voicing · Effects loop with effects level switch · Footswitch included · Cool vintage styling
  22. 👍 Thanks again, I might upload a couple more of my efforts in a new thread because I love reading any advice, and criticism, that might help me in the future.
  23. Thanks for the tips Dad, I think you are right about the cymbals being a bit lacking, would it help if I placed the two overhead mics nearer to them, or would they then be too overpowering? 🤔 As for the drum kit? its a DW and it was the first time our drummer had used it after having it specially made and imported from the USA, its a lovely sounding kit.
