  1. Thanks George 😁 The cheque's in the post 😉
  2. I bought this new from Bass Direct last summer but since then we've moved away from a traditional backline and i now DI into the PA system. As a result, I'm downsizing my rig. The Bergantino 12's have gone and I'm not giving this brilliant amp the use it deserves and so it should go too. Condition is mint. I've used it at home a few times and it's been to a couple of rehearsals and one gig. I have the box and all the instructions, mains lead, etc so it will be repackaged as it came to me. I'm not really looking for trades but I'm open to ideas so let me know what you've got and I'll consider it. I come down to London on a fairly regular basis so I can meet up anywhere along the A1 from Leeds down.... Or you're welcome to drop in to Skinny Towers besides the seaside and try it out for yourself. The kettles always on. I'd rather not post (previous bad experiences I'm afraid) but PM me and we'll try to work something out. The Magellan has a great reputation but for those who aren't familiar with it, here's the specs and pictures (note: Barefaced One10 not included!) Built for the demands of professional touring, the MAGELLAN™ 800 circuitry is housed in a classy, yet rugged aircraft-grade, brushed aluminium chassis with a sleek custom extruded front panel. •The dual channel design features: •Clean Channel – Pristine and Articulate (switchable with standard 1/4” latching footswitch) •Drive Channel – Voiced for a More Driven Tonal Signature and Harmonic Texture •Dual-Curve Variable Contour Circuitry •Curve A -- Classic to Modern -- Mid Scoop Curve •Curve B -- Thicker to Vintage -- Low-Mid Bump w/Tapered Top End •Flat Position -- Full Bypass •Active 3 Band EQ w/Parametric Mid Control •Signal Mute Switch •Input Pad Switch •Thermal Sensing Variable Speed Fan Cooling •Brushed All Aluminium, Anodised Chassis •2.67 Ohm Min. Total Load •Output: 400W/8 Ohms, 800W/4 Ohms and 800W/2.67 Ohms •Dimensions: 11.25”W X 10.5”D X 3”H •Weight: 6.25 Lbs 2.8kg
  3. Darren just bought my Bergantino CN112 cabs. We had a discussion about possible trades which came (amicably) to nothing. Darren subsequently made me an offer which i accepted and we met up the following day to complete the deal. This involved him making a five hour round trip to meet me! Great Comms throughout, a lovely guy to deal with. Deal with confidence, folks!
  4. How did you get out? I thought i had the only key....
  5. Cost me a fortune in tyres..... I'll do my best but can't confirm just yet - we might have a wedding gig (I hate wedding gigs...) I'm also a bit reluctant to attend if you're going to be there (they do say one should never meet ones heroes.....)
  6. Almost as bad was the lone Piper who used to lurk outside the King James hotel in Edinburgh waiting for busloads of tourists to be dropped out front so he could give them a quick blast of Scotland the Brave. At all hours of the day and night, or so it seemed. He was one of the characters primarily responsible for me wanting to become a sniper. Him and the receptionist who always used to put me in the room immediately above his "pitch".
  7. Welcome Mr Nitro! Good to have you here 😎😁
  8. Or you could combine the random names thing with the whole pre-apocalyptic shouty thing and call it Stormin' Norman. Personally, I'd go with Brian. You can then have a whole load of others in the range..... Dave (that'll be a compressor), Bob (modulation of some sort), Jeremy (Over drive), etc, etc
  9. Must remember to put some tape over that poxy webcam.
  10. A journey of self-discovery driven by BJH that is almost identical to my own. With the obvious difference that I'm not a member of the Supreme Court. Although i do believe that i was, in my day, a tousle-haired bit of alright.
