    How was your gig last night?

    If it's the place I'm thinking of, it went through a complete makeover 3 or 4 years ago. Place on the right as you head towards Chippy Norton?

    How important is the band name for you?

    How about "Tomorrow's Tuesday" - still about Monday but doesn't actually say so. Plus it should thoroughly baffle the locals!

    I think I know the place, went in there once trying to get a gig, but they never got back to me.

    Which pub was that?I live just outside Oxford, but very rarely bother to go there.

    Percussion - Reassure Me Here

    Pretty sure I was there in 91, my youngest would have about one, so probably OK with a babysitter by then. Phil Collins was drumming for him one of the early 90s gigs we went to.

    So did I - he was, wasn't he?

    2019 Gear challenge

    I have must have spent a fortune on ever more expensive gear, and now my pair of gigging basses have cost me about £1100 for them both. My shins are red raw from self-administered kicks!

    2019 Gear challenge

    I bought my last bass purchases of 2019 last week - Ibanez six string, East pre amp for it, new set of strings & topped up on leads. With one bass I had for sale being collected this week, I'll actually end 2018 with my music account in the black, even taking into account the cost of fuel and wear & tear on the car driving to gigs and rehearsals. Possibly the first time it's ever happened, and it won't be by much, but it's an improvement. With 2 more basses up for sale, I should be able get a good start to 2019 as well.

    I played at the Tap Social several times last year, but they didn't have a stage then. Interesting place to play.

    2019 Gear challenge

    I've bought 7 basses this year, and sold 7, but not necessarily the same ones I bought! One more is due to be taken away next week, so I will have at least one bass fewer in 2019. Sold one amp, bought one amp. Other than strings, I think that's about it.
  11. Next time I gig my Super Twin, I'll have to take an umph meter and see what is lacking
  12. I guess that the need for more top depends on your playing style, I have never felt the need for horns with either of my Barefaced cabs (don't think any cab I've owned has had a horn, come to think of it). But the Super Twin does sound very much like the Super Compact, just that much more of it. I think my ST is the only bit of kit I have never considered changing!
  13. If I was starting again, that's what I'd do as well.
  14. I don't think any piece of equipment is going to suit everyone, but if the OP just wants more of what he is getting from the Super Compact, then I can assure him from personal experience that the Big Twin will do just that. If he wants something that sounds different to the SC, then the ST might not be the best choice.
  15. I have both Super Twin and Super Compact cabs, and sometimes the Compact does seem to lack umph on stage - but I am assured it is fine where the audience is (talking average pub gig). I use the Super Twin for larger gigs and it has never felt to be lacking umph. I use the same amp for either cab, an Ashdown ABM 600 (or a Rootmaster 800, which is now my back-up amp). My Super Twin is the first one off the line (serial # S001) and I can't image parting with it while I can still draw breath. If I stopped playing pubs, though, I'd probably sell the Compact.
