    Rosetti Catalogue from the 60s

    I remember them from the Bells catalogue. A few even made it into the local music shops in the 70s.

    Looking for rulers...

    It was instilled in me at a very early age that it is a wooden ruler and a steel rule. It would be plastic ruler now though. Must be something here that fits the bill. https://www.tilgear.info/hand-tools/measuring-inspection/rules-and-tapes/rules-straight-edges?page={page}

    Andyjr1515 meets his Nemesis?

    What you want is Polymorph. Brilliant stuff! Here's a video if you don't know what I'm talking about.

    Amp Magnet reattachment!

    I've tried and failed. Not an easy job at all.

    For Beatles Fans Over 65 Only

    The White Album should have been a single album with just the good songs on it then It would have a brilliant album!
  7. Limiting the choice to bands I've seen live that left me totally speechless leaves just 2 and they are Golden Earring and Nutz. Both absolutely fantastic! as an aside, Dave Lloyd, the singer with Nutz, recorded this as well.

    Basses You've Owned and Hated

    1972 Precision. Absolute rubbish. Wish I still had it though, it would certainly be worth more than the £220 I paid for it new.

    In Ear Monitors - help needed...

    Been following this thread with great interest. I'd certainly like to go all in ears but our drummer will never do it as he doesn't like things in his ears and he'd never go electronic kit either so it's purely academic. However, I've been intrigued with the talk of the KZ ZS10s so I've bought a pair to see what it's all about. I've never been able to fit ear buds into my ears, I must have a funny ear shape, but I've managed too fit these in using the smallest rubber bits and I have to say they are mighty impressive just listening to music. A big thank you for discovering them.

    Weight Of The Bass

    Danelectro long horn sounds pretty good.

    Lightbulb joke...

    As well as the Doors, there's Atomic Rooster and Led Zeppelin, on Stairway to Heaven live anyway.

    Come home to Roost!

    Roost made an amazing 100w valve head. Sounded very close to Hiwatt.

    What a difference a good rig makes

    Totally agree. In my case it was four 4 x 12s driven with 2 x Marshall Super Bass hundreds. What a sound. Slightly impractical now though.

    Marshall vba valves

    Had a simliar problem with mine. It wasn't valves but dirt. The fan pulls air in from everywhere. The unused input sockets and the F/X loop sockets soon got dirty and started messing about. It might be worth checking these out first. A can of servisol is cheaper than a set of valves. Actually, a lead between the F/X sockets will cure that one but I had to have the input sockets changed as they got really dirty. Still cheaper than valves though.
