  1. 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.
  2. I wish I had a spare £700 right now. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2798835460403070/

    Show us your rig!

    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. 🤔
  4. Well that'll teach me to get my hopes up. 😔
  5. 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. 👍
  7. Same here funnily enough - always gets the crowd singing along.
  8. 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 😁).
  9. Sadly I really do need to get this shifted so price now dropped from £475 to just £450! Still includes postage and the Musicman hardcase. If anybody would rather collect then the price of postage would obviously be knocked off the asking price - looks to be about £30ish with insurance.
  10. Thanks. 👍 Yeah, I do hear people say good things about them but I found the ridiculously hot output on my old Sterling SUB made it almost unusable and it felt kind of flimsy to me (the neck stability was not great either). This on the other hand sounds and feels like the real deal and the low B is way better than it has any right to be at this price point. I really wish I could afford to keep it but needs must!
  11. My plan for this year was to use some of my gig earnings to buy myself a nice big valve amp. Instead I had to settle for spending some of my bonus from my day job on a nice small valve amp instead. In the great scheme of things I'd say that doesn't leave me too much room for complaint given some people's situations. I am missing the extra cash a little - especially as I was initially furloughed from my main job for 8 weeks and since then have only returned to work on reduced hours until the end of October. On the flip side though I've managed to offset at least a bit of that against the fact that I've not been making my usual 100 mile round trip daily commute as I'm able to work from home. Not only that but my employers seem to have decided that working from home will be the long term plan so that's a longer term saving of a few hundred quid a month in fuel and parking charges too. For me the negative impact of not playing has been far greater in terms of its effect on my mental health than it has on my bank balance as the lack of gigs has left me feeling pretty low at times. I'm hoping to put together some sort of acoustic duo soon though so I can maybe get at least a couple of gigs in here and there.
  12. Not necessarily a setup I would actually gig with - but in theory I could. Ibanez SRMS805 into an Ashdown ABM500rc Evoiii through an ABM Mini15. I could include my Budha Chakra compressor and EHX Bass Soul Food pedals too.
  13. You don't need luck. You need one of these...
  14. Same amp, just a different box. What kind of differences did you find the EH vaves made? More / less gain, more clarity, more bass? My CTM30 has the original JJs in it (and does sound amazing) but I'm curious exactly what effect I might get from changing them.
