  1. These kind of classifications are obviously entirely arbitrary and completely subjective and they've also evolved massively over time. As an analogy, it's like saying "is this a fast car or not?" Do you consider a Golf GTI to be a fast car or do you have to get into Porsche 911 territory for it to be classed as fast? And what about how things have changed over time? Back in 1901 this car held the land speed record at 65.79 miles an hour (achievable now on a 125cc learner legal motorcycle) but today I wouldn't want to be stuck behind one for too long in my 10 year old 1.6 Diesel Peugeot. Long and short of it - there's no answer to this question. 🤷‍♂️
  2. Brand new Ashdown CTM30 for just £333 anyone?! https://www.pmtonline.co.uk/ashdown-ctm-30-valve-bass-head
  3. It's actually a Harley Benton Power Attenuator that I've just tarted up to look like it's Ashdown. 😁
  4. This was my rig at our first gig since lockdown a few weeks ago. Since then though a CTM300 has been added to the collection so I've included a couple of pictures of the amps and cabs I have to choose from (which could in theory all be combined into one big, slightly ridiculous super rig). The CTM300 will get its first outing at a biker get together on Thursday.
  5. Just bought Marc's Ashdown CTM300. Admittedly I did buy it through ebay because I didn't spot his listing on here until after I'd already paid but its still a transaction with a fellow BC'er so I figure it still counts to leave some feedback. Marc's communications were great throughout and he even delivered it in person so all the fears of a trusting a courier with a big, heavy, all valve amp were avoided. Thanks Marc, it was a pleasure dealing with you.
  6. Came on to this once with a band I played in for a short time. It was a bit tongue in cheek as we were playing upbeat pop-rock originals but it actually seemed to work really well.
  7. I wish I had a spare £700 right now. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2798835460403070/
  8. When you do get a new cab next year, if you decided to sell those on I might be interested. I've been thinking about a Mini48 / Mini15 double stack. 🤔
  9. Well that'll teach me to get my hopes up. 😔
  10. First gig since lockdown confirmed this evening for next Saturday! It's even paid - at roughly 2/3 of our pre-lockdown standard fee. I'd happily have done it for free to be honest but it'll be a couple of extra Christmas presents for my kids which is nice. I literally can't remember the last time I was this excited! Gigging has been such a massive part of my life for the last 25 years and I can't deny that the lack of gigs this year has had a genuine impact on my mental health. I feel like somebody that lost a leg but a doctor has just told me that he can regrow it for me. 😁

    In case you hadn't seen this. 👍
  12. Same here funnily enough - always gets the crowd singing along.
  13. Or even the little Ashdown CTM15. There's one on ebay at the moment for £250 plus £10 postage (it's not mine by the way - if I had one I wouldn't be selling 😁).
