  1. Both, tortex 0.73 on bass, tortex flow 0.88 on the skinny stringed thing.
  2. Ross from Fatherson and Simon from Biffy Clyro are the first ones that spring to mind.
  3. I've got a Cort something or other HSH superstrat thing with a Floyd Rose, and currently mid way through a ebay Thinline Tele parts build.
  4. Stringray 4 H, white, stealth hardware, maple board (if EBMM would let me order that config), Helix Rack+control and a good wireless system.
  5. Afternoon all, I've purchased a pre-wired tele control plate and it seems to be wired in a different way to anything i've found online. Anyone any idea how this thing should be wired or is it easier just to start again with it?
  6. It is quite good to see one of the rare signature models that isn't like this. Some go wild. The ESP Ben Weinman is one that springs to mind. Different pickups, Evertune bridge, option of an internal wireless system, and it might have even been a shape he created if my memory serves me correctly. The other one being the PRS SE Zach Myers, because for a while you couldn't get a PRS hollowbody for under 2 grand other than that.
  7. Not blocks but i put some stickers on the fretboard of my Ibanez atleast 10 years ago and they're still there, so probably quite well i should think.
  8. That colour is incredible. That's one thing PRS seem to do better than most these days.
  9. Probably some sort of '72 thinline with a maple board. Depends what funds allow when i get around to sorting stuff out.
  10. I've got a Cort X9. Super strat style shreddy machine with a Floyd Rose. I'm after a tele and hopefully a PRS SE Zach Myers when funds allow.
  11. Dougie Poynter is one of only people i can think of who uses a Sterling. Pretty much all of his are in flake finishes with LED's.
  12. 01 Ever played a gig sitting down? Yes, a few acoustic gigs. 02 Ever gigged on a different instrument? Yes, acoustic guitar a few times 03 Ever shared a stage with a musical hero of yours? Not that i can remember 04 Any fan ever had a tatoo of your band's logo? None that i've ever seen 05 Ever signed an autograph in a dressing room? Not in a dressing room. We were rarely that lucky, 06 Ever cried on stage? Not that i remember 07 Ever worn a hat on stage? Pretty sure i have yes. If i was gigging now i'd proably wear a cowboy hat for sh*ts and giggles. 08 Ever gigged with a band you hadn't met before the gig? Nope 09 Ever been in a relationship with a fellow band member? Nope, though was in a band with an ex for a short spell. 10 Ever played in different bands on the same day? Nope 11 Ever had anything thrown at you while playing? Yes, and been booed offstage by some lets just say older, snobbier musicians. 12 Ever crashed on the way to the gig? Not that i remember, unless you count the endless times i caught my bass on a doorframe 13 Ever left a band over the choice of set list? Nope 14 Ever slept in the venue despite it not being a hotel? Not intentionally. Might've had a quick snooze every now and then 15 Ever been supported by a band clearly better than you? Not a band, but a solo artist who's now on the road to being fairly big 16 Ever played a gig suffering from some debilitating medical condition? Yes. Food poisoning from an earlier burger. Got home and spent the next 4 hours sat next to the loo 17 Ever been in a band where the guitarist was your favourite bandmate? Has anyone? 18 Ever played in the grounds of a stately home? Nope 19 Ever injured yourself on stage? Yes. Sat on the edge of the stage, tried to jump up onto the stage from where i was, caught my ankles, fell backwards into a crash cymbal and smacked my head. Never dropped a note though. 20 Ever been told that your bass isn't loud enough? A few times.
  13. I've been wanting to do similar for a while, with a '54 slab body and paint it some shade of obnoxious metalflake purple or pink.
  14. An awful lot of Starset, plus whatever comes up on my Spotify Daily Mixes whilst i'm working.
  15. Given the current confinement i've just upgraded to some slightly more proper speakerage on my desk. It's nice to not have any latency when trying to play through VST's.

      JBL 305P MkII's. There's definitely a noticable difference as i can play through these using the exact same setup as previously. There was just enough latency using that old DVD player that it really threw me out of whack, even when just monitoring the straight track with no VST's.

      You didn't say you were using the DVD player...  just the speakers.

    4. LiamPodmore


      Ahh yes. I was running it through the aux in on the DVD player, hence the issues.

  16. IT Support/Sales for home users and small-medium businesses. Luckily able to work from home relatively easily so hasn't caused us too many problems recently (other than the words remote access being seared into my brain for eternity)
  17. I've been getting hundreds of these on my work accounts from companies i've never even heard of and most certainly haven't signed up to emails from.
  18. I use them on everything. I once killed a set of ernie balls in 30 minutes and haven't used anything but Elixir since. I will admit they don't sound the best on electric guitar but after 7 or 8 years of only using them i can't stand the feel of anything uncoated. Tried a set of D'Addario EXL on my electric and they lasted as long as it took Amazon to deliver another set of Elixirs.
  19. Something along the lines of this, possibly with a T-Bass headstock. Obnoxious sparkly neon pink. I'd also have a white version just in case the sparkly pink wasn't appropriate.
  20. PMT in Salford seemed to have a fairly substantial range when i was in there last weekend. I think Symphony in Wigan also does.
  21. I ordered some KS10's the other day just to use in the meantime so i'll give those a good test tomorrow. Thanks, i'll drop you a PM later.
  22. The seemingly endless ordeal to get my 900s' that i bought repaired or replaced has finally ended with me getting all my money back. That's only taken four months. Remind me not to buy things on ebay again.
  23. Had them on everything for years now. Tried a set of D'addario non coated on my electric recently and ordered some Elixirs two days later because they just sounded terrible.
  24. Cable on my ACS has gone yet again and i can't be bothered replacing it again so looking for a replacement. Are the UE900s still the go to on the cheaper end?
  25. Elixir Stainless on my P bass, nickels on my 5 string, and i've recently tried a set of D'Addario EXL115's on my electric and absolutely hate them. Will be putting another set of Elixirs on there very soon.
