    In-Ear Monitors

    A word of caution. The are great if you have someone controlling the FOH sound. If a member of the band in responsible for FOH sound they need too hear the sound in the room otherwise you end up with a perfect IEM mix but the sound the audience hears may well be pants!!

    Punchiest amp?

    Stick with your current amp and buy a top notch compressor?

    Toyah Wilcox

    Have any of you seen Toyah on her recent acoustic tour? She is 3 weeks of being 60, she looks amazing and sounds fabulous. All the hits plus some rarities done with 2 acoustic 6 strings and a bass (fretless and double). Musically outstanding which is remarkable because one of the regular guitarists was rushed to hospital earlier in the week to have his appendix removed so a dep was used. Not that you would have known if we hd not been told!! Toyah is doing some gigs with a full electric band in November and on the strength of last night I have booked my tickets. I recommend you do the same. N PS I have no connection to Toyah or members of the band.

    The Oaf - Big Wreck

    The Guitarist is playing the original key and the riff does not seem to lie comfortably under the hand (unless someone out there has a wicked fingering).

    Acrylic body bass

    Here is mine. Always a talking point, especially with pink strings. There is a 5 string version of this currently on eBay with a Gator hard case. At £229 it's a bargain if you want the case. Overpriced if you just want the bass.

    Mismatched Disaster Gigs

    Metallica opening for the Freddie Mercury Tribute gig at Wembley. I was there and it didn't fit with the rest of the day.

    Strings for medium scale fiver

    Status Hot Wires? Work for me and not too expensive.
  11. I found that ear wax production was stimulated by loud noise and as soon as I started using decent earplugs my problems with excessive ear wax stopped. I'm not a specialist in this area but ear plugs had a double benefit for me. N

    Pa System advice?

    I use 2 RCF Evox 8's with a 6 piece covers band. For your band, 1 will probably be fine as they have good sound dispersion and good feedback rejection so you might be set it up in such a way that you can hear it and use it as a monitor. A word of warning about in-ear monitoring. Unless you have a sound person controlling the FOH sound you can be blissfully unaware of how bad you sound to the audience because you have the perfect in-ear mix. Been there, got the tee-shirt etc etc N

    Sorry for the delayed reply. I am on my second week of no broadband at home (#talktalkaref*@kinguseless). The Spector site says .66" at the bridge. If you are interested I'll take some pictures. Nick

    SOLD! Ibanez SRFF805. £500 SOLD!

    Would a 6 string Spector Legend in virtually new condition be of interest to you?
