  1. I’m itching to give my lockdown Peavey VB-2 I damn good thrashing. I’ll be honest though, if i was humping stuff in and out of pubs, there’s no way I’d consider a valve amp - small and light is the way to go. Thank God for Roadies!!
  2. I'm the bass player with Stray. Our main man, Del Bromham, writes a lot of bluesier less rocky stuff, so we'll often go out as Del Bromham's Blues Devils. Sometimes we'll be our own support act!
  3. I'm usually flat out on the bass volume wise and use a volume pedal for swells. However, my luthier (Andy Viccars) swears on rolling the volume off just a tad when gigging which he claims finds the pickup's 'sweet spot'. He has better ears than I!!
  4. Sold pending collection
  5. Zoom B9 1ut multi effects. Some light signs of use, comes with power supply, instructions, paperwork. Valve preamp which warms the tone up nicely, very versatile and a cool expression pedal that not only goes up and down but side to side too. Located in Milton Keynes, able to post at cost. Here's what Zoom say: The Zoom B9.1ut bass effects console combines the most technically advanced audio engine with the warmth of a classic 12AU7 tube to produce the richest tones imaginable. The Zoom B9.1ut 's ultra fast ZFX-3 processor means all the world's famous amplifiers, cabinets and effects are modelled with stunning accuracy. Combining the raw processing power of the ZFX-3 with the 12AU7 tube accelerator produces richer harmonics and organic tone. By adjusting the mix balance, the thick characteristics of the 12AU7 tube and the striking clarity of the ZXF-3 can be adjusted so that saturation is natural and focused. Delivering high-resolution, 96kHz sampling processing with 24-bit A-to-D and D-to-A conversion, the B9.1ut rivals the processing equipment found in the finest studios. This means that the wide pitch, timbre and dynamic ranges created by modern bass styles are handled without degradation, ensuring clear, transparent sound. From Ampeg, Fender, and Marshall as well as more recent models such as Hartke, SWR, and Aguilar, a whole world of bass tone comes complete on the B9.1ut. The cabinet simulator emulates the low-frequency characteristics and sonic behavior of vintage and modern bass speaker cabinets. The Zoom B9.1ut offers a versatile collection of 112 effect types arranged in 10 modules. They are optimized for the dynamic and wide-range signal created by the modern bass. The module insert position can be specified for the preamp section and wah/filter effects, to accommodate even more advanced creativity. The Zoom B9.1ut comes preprogrammed with artist-created bass sound settings from major genres such as Rock, Jazz, and Funk. Doug Wimbish (Living Color), JD DeServio (Black Label Society) and Eric Struthers (Aaron Neville) have each provided customized preset patches. And you can save your own original patches with the enough storage capacity for another 80 patches. The built-in Z-type expression pedal developed by Zoom captures up/down and sideways movement for controlling more effect parameters with subtle changes. The Z-pedal lets you build highly complex sounds by assigning up to four parameters each in the vertical and horizontal direction. The B9.1ut has a built-in set of stereo XLR outputs that lets you establish a balanced signal path for clean sound. Go directly to a mixing console or PA system without additional gear. The USB port on the B9.1ut provides audio interface capability for recording to digital audio software. The B9.1ut comes bundled with Cubase LE 4 so you can start creating music right away. And because playback from the software application can be monitored on the B9.1ut itself, you can record and monitor with no latency.
  6. Having upgraded to the version 2 headset, I'm selling my V1 Oculus Quest VR headset. It's well used and shows signs of use but in full working order. It's the 64gb version and comes with two controllers, charger, cable and glasses spacer. You'll need a Facebook account to register it and purchase games. It's great for gaming and keeping fit indoors. You can also watch Netflix, Prime and YouTube on it as well as use it as an internet browser. I'm looking for £150 and could, at a push, post at buyers cost and risk. These are really awesome gadgets. I use it for boxing and table tennis along with many other fitness apps and have fought zombies, blasted robots, slaughtered demons and been a little swordfighting mouse!! Games cost between around a tenner and 35 quid a pop and there is some free stuff about too.
  7. Pretty much all my gigs have a pro installed PA, but I still take a back up amp (ELF). If my head goes down it's a lot quicker for me to swap 3 leads over rather than faff about getting a DI and monitor mix sorted. It's also useful for when the support band ask if they can use to your rig. I don't like having to reset my amp up just before we start so I always offer to let them use the ELF. Of course there's no right or wrong here. It's all down to the individual's band and gear situation, their attitude to risk and the potential consequences of gear failure. Stay safe y'all! X
  8. Elf for me. Now I've bought the Peavey valve beast though, my Bugera Veyrom will be redundant so I'll prob take that as my spare. The elf is capable but only just whereas the Veyrom has volume in spades.
  9. Yeah I’ve got that - think I digitised it somewhere along the line!
  10. Here's the clip of moi from Newsnight (Repeated on Dance Britannia) after an Angelwitch gig at The Marquee. The original program was concerned with headbanging causing brain damage. I'm the one asking how many people have died from heart attacks while disco dancing.
  11. What band is this Bilbo?
