  1. So, long story short.... I drove through to the Ashdown offices, had my amp repaired, had a lovely chat with with Guy and wasn't charged a penny!!!! I started off with Trace Elliot amps, then switched to Ashdown (that glorious silver faced unit) then made a brief move to an American brand, and then returned to Ashdown... This trip to the source aside, I can't see myself moving again. Thank you so much Guy and company for not only your stellar service, but the amazing relationship you have built. Love you all... @Ashdown Engineering

  3. I shall be heading out there one Wednesday soon - work keeps on getting in the way of that trip hahahaha - hopefully it'll be a simple fix for me
  4. Yeah - sorry about that - auto pilot when I type some times - and as you can see by the duplicated message, I was having browser issues too. Sorted! So - I have tried so many different things - including emailing Ashdown, but I will contact the, here too (thanks for that @Lozz196) I want to open it up and try a different internal cable from the speakers to the unit itself to see how that works. I don't have much gear with me as a recent emigree to the UK, my gear is in transit on the ocean (I hope) - whch would make my life so much easier... Right - emailing Ashdown via BC (not TB)
  5. Hi all I recently bought an Ashdown EVO III 500 210 combo off eBay, and the amp is a win. However, it's just recently started with this odd intermitent scratching noise. I think I have zeroed in on the problem - it's the cable between the speakers and the amp - or the speakers themselves. Neither input gain, nor output level has any baring whatsoever on the noise - nor does the EQ, or any other feature. Quite literally, the cable can ge out, the levels all at zero and the sound is there. Before I shell out for a repairman, I want to see if I can fix this myself - so, good people of the BCcommunity - your thoughts please? Many thanks in advance.
  6. @three ~ thanks mate. Good to know!!
  7. Ah, at MPH Guitars? Nice! Thank you What sayeth this group about the Bass Gallery? I would be most interested to hear any thoughts
  8. Hi all, So I've recently emigrated to the UK, and I need a tech that I can use for my basses (and gear in general) that is both inexpensive AND terrific. I live in Epping and work in the "Mile" and would prefer a London based person. Any suggestions? Locations? Cheers in advance.
  9. The first bass player that caught my attention, way back in 1980 - the incomparable John Deacon. Quite possibly the most underrated bass player of them all, JD remained true to both the song, and to his own craft with melodic, driving, and oftentimes, intricate lines. But let's face it, who among us has not bobbed their heads to Another One Bites the Dust!!!! I'll take mine in 6 string sets please 😎
  10. I never considered the Bach angle - that actually sounds like a great idea!!!!! Thanks @Japhet
  11. @TKenrick: you are a champ - that is brilliant,. and hey, a little self-promotion is how we get ahead in life and bass Many thanks!!!
  12. Thank you kindly Chris. My biggest issue at the moment is time management with work, family, exercise and the stupid traffic I contend with daily. I know it's not an excuse - and the lessons I have had have truly been invaluable, but for now I am pretty much a self-study guy (like it or not).... sigh... I guess I'm not doing much between 2 and 3 in the morning!
  13. Hi fellow low end dwellers.... I've been playing for a long time now and while I know I can play, I really want to take my playing to the next level. I'd like some pointers on material/books/dvds etc that I should/could/must/can look at as a stepping stone... I want to start deep diving the following points: Jazz theory and reharmonisation (specific to bass) Speed and endurance How to play using scales, modes and chord tones without thinking about it and Slap - the elusive wow! factor Oh! And a proper daily practice routine from simple to Huh??? levels! I am serious about this. I have reached a plateau and I can't seem to break through despite the plethora of material I have accrued over the years. In advance, I thank you all kindly From Johannesburg, South Africa! Have Bass, Will Travel... Julian
  14. Your thoughts please kind folk of the low end....
  15. [quote name='TG Flatline' timestamp='1385638703' post='2290468'] You must be good at packing the car boot for going on holiday - excellent use of a relatively small space! [/quote] My wife has taught me well But thanks man... I still want a bigger board. Not a fan of having to be so careful where I stomp!
