  1. Anyone out there able to source parts for and build a seven button footswitch?  I have the schematic but wouldn't know where to begin...

      It's just channel and effects loop switching for a preamp.

      Ahh, should be easy enough, if you wanna PM the schematic over I can have a look.

      Bob beat me to it, I was about to say 'PM me the schematic' :lol:

      In fact, sod it, send it to me anyway. 

  2. After months of mucking about on guitar because it was more interesting, I picked up one of my basses this evening and played.  It was so much more satisfying.  I'll always be a bass player.

      I started on guitar as a teenager and moved over to focusing mostly on bass after about a year or so, now I almost never play guitar. When I go back to guitar my instincts are so off

      I have a guitar myself..... and I rarely play it at all, mostly due to lack of time
      It's always handy to play a bit of guitar, and useful for bass players to know a few chords at least

      My own impression of a guitarist is also pretty bad lol ;)

      After a visit to an old friends house and playing with his rather nice collection (Fenders, Gretsch's, Jacksons and a Brian May Red Special) I ended up tempted and got an Epiphone Les Paul Trad Pro 2 and a Gothic Epiphone SG. Its fun to bang out a few AC/DC chords. Doubt it will go to performance stage though - started on bass, and an old dog only learns so many new tricks.

  3. Dad band. Probably most of us know this situation or one similar.

      Dad banned.  So there.



  4. Attn guitarists:  My Fender Concert II is advertised for sale:
    Rivera era, last of the hand wired point to point jobbies.  Fabulous sounding but too loud for my needs!

  5. The Mandelorian: It's brilliant, really brings the wider Star Wars universe to life. All those incidental characters in the movies get more air time rather than just being links between plot points.

      A bit like The Mandalorian then.  Heeheehee.

      I looked it up because, at first, I thought you were talking about a sci-fi version of a mandolin or summat.

  6. FFS, I went in for a replacement filling and after 2.5 hours came away with prep for two crowns (prepaid).  I hate it when events deviate from the plan.

      It's called upselling...

      Hah, I paid for them in 2016 because my back teeth are basically crumbling due to stress grinding in my sleep and very tall cusps.  It wasn't urgent work but since I was there and they had been paid for...urgh.

  7. Today I discovered Marc Cerrone.  One of the most influential disco drummers to have ever lived.  And I'm wondering how the hell had I not heard of him before now...he's a groove beast!

  8. Is there a manufacturer who has or still makes self biasing valve bass amps?  The nearest amp tech to me lives in Hong Kong...700km away.

      I remember Traynor did one with LED bias indicators on the back.

      didn't Behringer?

      The Ampeg PF50T also has user-adjustable bias with LED indicators.  Not exactly self-biasing, but very user friendly.
