  2. Yeah, my feelings exactly, on both counts! 😁
  3. For thems as like this kind of thing (you know who you are 😉)... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184159246167?ul_noapp=true
  4. If size doesn't matter (the dimensions of Ashdown pedals do seem to bother a few folks!), how about the Ashdown LoMenzo Hyperdrive? Set the frequency band to be subjected to the drive / distortion effect using the FREQ control, set the amount of drive using the DRIVE control, then blend the dry signal back in with the MIX control, and Bob's yer auntie's live-in lover.
  5. Beige, maaaaan... 😎 "Beige's guitar, lute and harpoon player, Geoff Djeff: "I'd been struggling for hours to come up with a fresh concept. In a flash of inspiration I got the idea of combining a cosmic apocalypse with my favourite TV programme, 'The Black & White Minstrel Show.' I knew right away I'd got something really classy..."

  6. Hmm, looks like the bass has now completely disappeared off Andy Baxter's site... 🤔
  7. Just resurrecting this thread again rather than start another. It would appear that Barry Matthews is no longer with us, his '66 Slab is up for sale via Andy Baxter. My dream bass, but as I don't have £11, 995.00 going spare, it'll just have to remain a dream... https://www.andybaxterbass.com/collections/fender-precision-bass/products/1966-fender-precision-bass-slab-body-blon
  8. My Other Half's quite "crafty" (in the nicest possible sense), I'll see if she can knock up a few of these! Ker-ching... 🤑
  9. And literally a "John Paul Jones Signature" bass if my eyes don't deceive me! 😎
  10. Glenn Hughes, particularly on "Made In Europe". That said, it was about 20 years after that LP came out that I actually got my first bass and started playing, and I've never learnt how to play with a pick so can hardly call him a direct influence on my particular playing style.
  11. It's how I started. Everybody else attending the NWOBHM gigs at Blackpool Norbreck Castle was playing air guitar, so I chose bass instead. Seemed like a good career move...
  12. Oops, I knew there was another Trace fan I forgot to tag - sorry @Deedee! Yeah, they're odd wee beasties. All I can really say is they're 8ohm, rated at 150W, and some have a horn while others don't. From the pictures I've seen, the speaker can either be located centrally (like the two currently on eBay), or offset to the side like the two in these links... https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/trace-elliot-blx-110-speaker-745211227 https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/trace-elliot-blx-110-bass-cab-473138345 Mine's one of the hornless / offset speaker variety, and for some reason the TE badge is in the diagonally opposite corner to all the others! And yes, the head may be familiar to you... 😉
  13. We actually drove past Gillingham this morning heading home along the M2, so could have made a detour to pick the other one up, but The Boss was driving and wouldn't do it. Oh well, it wasn't a perfect match for the one I've got anyway...
  14. Paging @TheGreek and @stewblack Just like buses, you don't see any BLX-110s for ages, then two turn up at once! Unfortunately I won't be bidding on either as I've just bought another bicycle instead... 🙄 This one's in St Neots... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303249036897?ul_noapp=true This one's in Gillingham... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/202753989485?ul_noapp=true
