  1. That was my CN212 although I did send in a couple of postal votes on the day to make sure of victory :0)
  2. Anyone out there tried running 2 CN212s ,just asking for a friend ;0)
  3. After working on a video shoot for the band Dead Crow Road ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqdTRwFDmyY ) I decided to build a tea chest bass from those useful bits and pieces that you find down the shed. The tea chest bass comprises: 1960 pre CBS Brooke Bond tea chest, 2004 broomstick, Headstock sawn off of my 1958 Fender P Bass (NOOOOOOOOOO!!) :0) Construction Notes Using my P bass to obtain a template the headstock was cut out of a piece of wood with a jigsaw. A single schaller tuning key was fitted to the headstock . The headstock was then attached to the broomstick utilising a hanging rail from a wardrobe with some screws normally used to mount a mirror. Structural wooden support bars were added to the bottom of the tea chest A length of nylon strimmer wire was utilised as a string. Sounds great, just need to work on some form of transducer to amplify the bass.
  4. Hi Andrew Thx ,some interesting information regarding the fault on the 12AX7 with the MPulse 600. Regarding your your fault: " The fault was pretty fundamental as it was in the power supply relay cct which switches in after the valve heaters have come up. There is a capacitor after one of the voltage regulators in this section which is underrated on working voltage and failed and in doing so blew the regulator too." Last year whilst setting up for gig at the Half Moon Putney my M Pulse 600 had the same fault,luckily the bass player in the other band let me use his MB 400+. Now always bring a class D as a backup although I still love the sound of the MPulse.
  5. Great guy to do business with,sorry to hear about your injury.
  6. Lockdown blues... Give it a share for a bit of fun and stay safe everyone. With a big thank you to all of the people involved in the making of this video :0) - Rumblefish Had some great fun filming my contribution to the video with my GB Spitfire.
  7. An interesting take on the 1973 classic Radar Love by those wonderful DCR chaps from down south in Hampshire. Enjoyed playing my P bass on this track which was put together by the Bass Doc and features a vintage p bass pickup by Eternal Guitars.
  8. Purchased a comfort strap from Colin which arrived as described,excellent communication and swift service. Cheers.
  9. A word of warning to all you owners of the Mesa Boogie Subway amplifiers. I have gigged my MB Subway D800 for a couple of years ,enjoying the portability over my MB MPulse 600 for the smaller gigs. Although these amplifiers come with a very good PC style carry case the ease of carrying them in the case leads one to think that the case will protect the amp to transport it when gigging. The controls of my amp were damaged when it was knocked on the main facia plate whilst in the PC style case although there was no noticeable visual damage. The excellent team at Mesa Boogie Westside Distribution in Glasgow did a fine job of repairing the damaged controls. I would suggest that you purchase a small flight case when you are transporting the amplifier just to be on the safe side,lesson learnt the hard way :0(

  11. Basschatters Thx for the feedback regarding the strings for the Gibson EBO. The bass has a very inherent tone which has been described as "muddy" and really suits the blues/jazz genre. Will be trying some flats and some roundwounds to see what works best.
