Total Watts

  1. All fixed! Was just as simple as replacing the battery clip and re-soldering the wires as John mentioned. Technician did it same day for a tenner. Result!
  2. I was just thinking that! It would be an absolute nightmare to replace that from abroad, even though there's only a few days until I leave it's better than nothing! Glad to know it might be an easy fix for the clip, hopefully they can sort it locally and not have to hot foot it up to London 😄. I can never seem to get the damned battery out properly. Thanks John!
  3. Dear all, Wonder if anyone could help with this! Due to head abroad for a job in a few days and, perfectly timed, my only useable professional bass had decided to die on me 🙄 .. serves me right for only having one good one! Attempted to change the 9v battery in my MusicMan Sterling Ray active bass and after wrestling with the clip a while during the change, and finally prising the old battery off, after inserting the new one I'm getting whistling, a faulty connection which cuts out and sometimes nothing at all. Wonder if I've managed to somehow managed to break the battery clip during all the twisting.. anyone else had a similar issue and know if it's an easy fix? Contacted the local repair guy who's gonna have a look at it tomorrow but really bricking it as leaving Thursday night! Timing really is everything ha.
  4. Thanks for the deluxe big muff (pedal) Colin! Arrived super quickly, well pleased. Easy dealings 😊.
  5. That would be when my fingers start to 'stick' to the strings around the pickup area 😂. Way back when, before corona when I played function music every day, a set of nickelwounds would last about 3 months of nightly use before playing anything quickly is basically impossible.. and that was with daily string cleaning!! When I have the money I try and change every month.
  6. Thank you both for your help! I'll try those out, the notepad option sounds like a good idea as it doesn't require much editing. I wonder if Musescore is worth looking into also, as it's free.
  7. Evening all! Been a little while since my last post. Like a lot of you I've been looking for ways to fill the void in the last year, so I've been uploading bass covers of new songs to YouTube, and had a lot of people asking if I have tabs for the bass lines. Has anyone had experience in creating and posting tabs on their YouTube channel? I looked into trying to make the tab a part of the video but it seemed to require a level of editing way beyond my simple video editing 'skills' 😂. I can also see that some people create PDF's of tabs and upload them to Google drive and share the link but I've no idea what program they're using. Many thanks in advance! KJ
  8. Bought a Chorus pedal off Ben which he kindly sent the same day as I needed it in a hurry. Was quick and easy and arrived very securely packaged! Pleasure doing business, cheers!
  9. Bought an MXR octave pedal from James and everything was quick and easy, it arrived promptly and communication was great. Deal with confidence. Cheers James!
  10. I've been buying and selling on here for a little while now so it occurred to me that i'd better get this up here!
  11. Bought the Micro-POG off Adam and everything was swift, efficient and I was kept well updated. It arrived the next day after sending. Perfect! Cheers dude!
  12. My punk band played at a small venue in London, the first band came on, no one watching except our band and a couple of their mates, that band immediately leaves. The organisers band come on, about 25 of their mates show up and promptly also leave, giving us an audience of about 5 people for our show. What the hell is wrong with people? I mean, who goes to a gig to just watch one band?
