  1. If you hit Tamworth I could pick it up, but where would the next drop off point be? Down the M6, M1 or M5, living centrally means I could travel down all three.
  2. I would think that the construction of flats, wider wrap, would possibly prevent the use of flats for through body stringing (have a look at the photo's in the 'flat wound string close ups' thread in 'General Discussion' and imagine how the string would look when bent at 90 deg).😀
  3. Interesting article, thanks uk_lefty.
  4. Excellent video portraying an excellent and innovative band. I need to get the vinyl back out😁
  5. 'Meanwhile, can anyone explain what "a linear approach" is, as mentioned in the title of Mr Willis' book? easy words only please.' Toneknob, have a look at the Phil Mann lockdown video's on the Ashdown site. He talks about the linear approach, cycle of fourths and other processes. I think there are 4 videos in total covering fretboard progressions.
  6. Have a bass with switchable Active/Passive modes and use a pedal if required. My ACG is fitted with a John East pre-amp with this option and I use a Dave Hall VT1 just to 'warm' the sound if required. Generally meets all the requirements I need especially a battery fail.
  7. I've been bombarded with the emails as well together with the offer of $50 off but that still makes the cost high for something that has such a time commitment. I will admit that the course would probably improve my playing though.
  8. I use Newtone 50-110 nickel roundwound strings on all my short scale bases. They suit the scale length and provide a tension that allows precise control of the note played with fingers (soft to hard depending upon the song being played).
  9. I've got a Pioneer PL12D in need of some tlc if someone is interested. I still have my 90's gear: Nottingham Analogue Spacedeck (1992) Meridian 200 CD player Croft pre and power amp Rega Alya speakers
  10. How about a basic turntable set up: Turntable - Audio Technica LP60XUSB £119 Amp - Cambridge Audio Topaz AM1 £99 Speakers - Mordant Short M10 £59 All available from Richer Sounds.
  11. TEAC do a couple: TEAC MC-D800_CH TEAC LP-R500A-B The 800 unit has separate speakers and what looks like a better turntable. The 500 is an all in one. Both are well within the £500 budget. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Teac-Turntable-Combination-Rotation-Bluetooth/dp/B014HG9VDY/ref=pd_sbs_23_4/261-1946044-8659907?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B014HG9VDY&pd_rd_r=48ddaf30-4e12-421f-942b-1a34c0d16469&pd_rd_w=Ym2kt&pd_rd_wg=T7FnJ&pf_rd_p=2773aa8e-42c5-4dbe-bda8-5cdf226aa078&pf_rd_r=4SWYY6EBYSBSM149FW1V&refRID=4SWYY6EBYSBSM149FW1V&th=1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Teac-LP-R500-Vinyl-Cassette-Station/dp/B002RW5298/ref=pd_di_sccai_4/261-1946044-8659907?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B002RW5298&pd_rd_r=499d56fc-4c7c-4854-ba02-30545babda4d&pd_rd_w=sT2e5&pd_rd_wg=D40fX&pf_rd_p=59cc1d13-7615-4c08-b20b-ea879fcdf2b9&pf_rd_r=XHCARFNX9H0T018Q2NRE&psc=1&refRID=XHCARFNX9H0T018Q2NRE
  12. Had a note from our studio saying that they are re-assessing their opening strategy due to the fact that an enclosed space increases the risk of catching Covid19 due to droplets put into the air when singing. This looks like a sensible move since a similar situation exists for theatres and venues, and it must be similar for pubs.
