  1. Ashdown - All heft, no cleft. I think I'll let them have that one for free 😂
  2. I love my Ashdown kit. I gig my rig most weekends and it's rock solid. I have the Neo 210 and 115 cabs which make shifting them about easier. The head, a Klystron Classic 500, probs needs a service now, but it's just arranging it around down time. I also still have my old original first series ABM 115 200W combo. That needs some work, occasionally get a really loud buzzing when you turn it on and sometimes not. Got a couple of other bits n bobs too! Anyhoo, I just see myself ever changing from them 😊
  3. JJB, massive inspiration to me. The aggressive sound way up in the mix and the great bass lines, brilliant. Listening to Stuart Henry's punk show on Luxembourg 208 on Sunday evening in my dad's car, hearing Neat Neat Neat by the Damned and Peaches turned me on to music and made me want to play bass. Playing along with The Ramones showed me that I could do it too! The Stranglers were so beyond the usual punk ethos, clever songs with tricksy timings, jagged guitar parts, flowing keyboard, great drum patterns, monster bass. At the time, I bundled them in with all the other punk stuff I was listening too as it came out but it was obvious they were different. Yes, that Golden period from Rattus up to Gospel are my favourites, with the odd one or two from after.
  4. OMG! It's Paul Gray all the way!! I guess he's an endorsee, certainly should be. Used Rotosounds since year dot! Eddie & The Hot Rods, The Damned, UFO and a load of other incredible projects under his belt. He plays with such fluidity, style and passion. A true inspiration.
  5. And with Paul Gray back on bass, they have really lifted themselves up in the last couple of years. He takes them back to their best level of musicality. Oh and apparently they played a blistering set in some tent in a corner at Glasto at the weekend. 😃
  6. I'm sure I read somewhere that Norman played quite a lot of the bass on the earlier Clash albums. Slight off topic but still Norm related 😄
  7. You beat me to it! Paul is such a fluid melodic bass player 😃
  8. I'll see if I can pencil out a crude drawing of the room. It's really a very basic option I'm looking at and certainly bang for buck! Interesting about the ceiling meeting the wall, basically it's an acoustic coving solution?
  9. Square..with clutter!
  10. As the title suggests the small room I use for my music is too boomy. From the bass amp to the stereo system. I'm not precious about perfection, nor do I want to spend a lot so I'm wondering what DIY low cost options there are to bring down the boom. Would some foam under the stereo speakers on the desk help a little? Bass traps on the walls (are these just big chunks of foam)? Thanks
  11. I use Wedgie 1mm nylons. I like the little bit of flexibility they give me but they also have the textured grip but double also they have a great concave dent for your thumb. I find them perfect for my terrible technique playing! https://www.wedgie.com/nylon-xt.html#
  12. Aww, my wee man avatar has just disappeared. I can't find the original to re-upload him 😪 Time for a change I guess.... ughhh.. change!
  13. I heard he was a bit of a wind up merchant...
