  1. The laquer on my trombone is wearing off in places where I hold it! hah. It might be beause he's using it, or again as said before acid sweat haha.
  2. Seems to be fine. The cab is rated higher than the full output of the head, the minimum 4 ohms in met (otherwise you could run one or two 8 ohm cabs instead of a single 4 ohm one). I suppose just listen out for any farting, etc if you really drive your amp/cab to ear-crushing high volumes.
  3. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bp4UI_FxGLE[/media] I really like this cover by Johnny cash.
  4. Brilliant! Congrats. If rockschool are anything like trinity the certificate will take MONTHS.
  5. Selling my Ibanez, as I don't use it anymore, and I have one too many basses cluttering my room. Has a little bit of faint red paint on top of the headstock, tried to show it in a photo. Should come off with application of spirits. Currently strung with nearly unused DR Black beauties. Looking for £120, but open to offers.[attachment=113396:100_6390.jpg][attachment=113397:100_6394.jpg][attachment=113398:100_6395.jpg][attachment=113400:100_6396.jpg]
  6. definately head and seperate cabs. more modular, flexible and slightly easier to carry. I have an old ashdown EB 180 combo, and its quite heavy. I'll be looking to get head & cab when I upgrade. xD
  7. balanced is always a good idea, if its applicable to whatever cable you are using. I believe the simplest way, and the way I do it with my desk is this: I believe there are RCA outputs labelled 'REC OUT' - thats the one you want. so for that you want one of these (as an example) [url="http://www.thomann.de/gb/the_sssnake_yrk2015.htm"]http://www.thomann.d...ake_yrk2015.htm[/url] a 3.5mm stereo jack to RCA so you can just plug into your 'line in' or 'mic' port on your PC. alternatively there are USB interfaces which include software such as http://www.woodbrass.com/en/product_info.php?calculport_country_id=222&products_id=88576&af=833& but I cannot really comment on this as I don't use it.
  8. I Wish - Stevie Wonder Animal I have Become - Three Days Grace
  9. So What - Miles Davis Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi Dreaming of You - The Coral Breathing - Yellowcard
  10. I found that knowing some tunes that use an interval as part of a main melody e.g. for a fifth, try the first two notes of the star wars theme!
  11. Are you doing it with Rockschool, or trinity? Or another board? I recently did my grade 8 trombone, and the sight reading (from the syllabus) seemed to be what you would expect from a grade 5/6 performance piece. I also don't know how much they go into theory and aural testing? I also don't see why they should restrict you on what kinda of bass you bring (as long as its in the correct tuning. )
  12. wow this is so tempting. just wish I needed this! have you considered shipping?
