  1. I've got one of those and it's absolutely brilliant. Best gig bag I've ever used. I've got a review on that page too!
  2. Only album from this year that I've bought is Clutch - Psychic Warfare. Marvellous stuff, although I do love 'em!
  3. I use an EHX pitchfork and it does the job well enough for me. We do 6 songs in Drop D and there's no noticeable difference in sound when I use it. I think it's a great bit of kit.
  4. I use a TU-3 Tuner, EHX Pitchfork for drop tuned songs and EXH Nano Bass Muff for the fuzzy goodness. Used to use a pedalboard but to save stage space I sit them on top of my amp.
  5. I joined the band just before last Christmas and our drummer joined soon afterwards. We've not had a cross word yet. It's almost more of a group of five mates who occasionally play music. Musically, everyone's ideas are valid and no one gets the hump when an idea is bad. We socialise a lot and the banter is bordering on offensive however, we all have a similar sense of humour, nobody takes anything to heart. This really comes across in our stageshow. We've had lots of comments on how we're all having a great time on stage, which we are. I think a lot of it comes from the fact that we're all in our 40s and, like many of you, have had those silly experiences with fragile egos. We just want to play rock music and put on a great show.
  6. Played a village hall last night. We'd been asked to go on at 8:45PM despite the rugby being on. Had a fairly entertaining evening ourselves despite the place having a pretty low turnout. Not sure we'll be back there again as apparently a heavy rock band are a bit heavy for them... despite the fact that the few folks who were there did get up on the dancefloor! Highlight of the night was two women having a wild screaming fit at each other, coming close to fisticuffs as we were packing up. It's nice to get entertained back.
  7. SOLD! Near mint condition EHX Bass Big Muff Pi. Only used for six gigs over three months. Feet removed and velcro added to bottom. Original box and manual included. Free postage.
  8. Nice one! Loving that tune, Clutch are ace.
  9. It always goes down well in our set too. Interesting...
  10. 20W Peavey Microbass. Always been fine for me. Sits upstairs in the bedroom and I'll noodle away while everyone's downstairs watching TV.
  11. My wife, by her own admission, is not a massive music fan. She liked pop stuff like Boyzone, Britney Spears, etc when we met. My influence has helped and nowadays she likes Muse, Iron Maiden, Clutch and even the odd one from Mastodon. She likes a bit of Zep as well. Might see if she'll embrace Rush over the next few years...
  12. First time in a new venue for us. Great pub, nice area for the band to set up. Enough room for the five of us with all our gear and a bit of wiggle room too. Not a huge turnout as apparently a lot of their regulars were away at Download. Debuted my Morpheus drop tune pedal in our drop tuned section. It's got a slight underwatery sound on it but that's mainly lost in the mix so I'm happy with it. Set went down very well, had the place bouncing but there was that one, drunk, overenthusiastic wannabe... "Can I sing one?" "You should let me do your backing vocals" "I sang that at my birthday you should let me sing it" He even grabbed my mic at one point and I had to politely advise him to never do that again and to step away from it, which he duly obliged. Booked in for a couple more there, looking forward to them.
