  10. Warwick Thunderbird gig bag for sale in good used condition. Selling as I no longer have a T-bird! I can do a meet up (I'm in Nottingham) within reason or courier - I reckon £15 should cover it (it's not heavy just bulky) but if someone's interested in having it delivered I'll pack it up and get a proper quote Pic is from GAK for reference only I'll post some actual pics tonight

    Perfecting the gig setup process

    Drums first, the rest of us set up the PA while the drummer is farting about. Then the amps etc and the last thing is the lights. We always forget to put our banner up first and so end up clambering over stuff at the end of set up.

    Bass Direct

    Anyone visiting Bass Direct is a serious potential buyer. I would like to bet that they get almost no casual 'walk-ins'. I've spent time at the retail 'coal face' and have to agree with mrtcat (and therefore disagree with FDC484950) that if they want a long term future they should/must pay attention to making the customer feel good about the purchase. I travel on Ryanair by necessity not choice - even Michael O'Leary, about whom it has been said that he is capable of starting an argument even when in a room on his own, has realised that a business has to give the customer the 'warm fuzzies' as my kiwi mate calls it. I am not saying that Bass Direct is as bad as Ryanair btw - far from it, but they need to up their game in that department
