  1. All I want it for is home practice. When I get to the point of getting out the house and playing with people I'd like something bigger. The practice amp I have atm won't keep up. with anyone else in the room!
  2. Thats really good to know @bassbiscuits as I've ordered one I've been eyeing the up for ages as it means I can get rid of the temperamental 90's Marshall practice amp I was given (it works if you tip it. back at an angle ) and my 8" Peavey Bass amp and free up some space in the back room.
  3. In case anyone was after a small practice amp saw an ad on instagram for the Blackstar BEAM for £150 this weekend only, and backed by Blackstar: https://www.blackstaramps.com/uk/idcore-beam-offer Seems like a good offer at £80 off. I've gone for it anyway Thought I'd share in case its useful to someone.
  4. Thanks for the update @uk_lefty - I just ordered a BEAM on the weekend Blackstar offer https://www.blackstaramps.com/uk/idcore-beam-offer
  5. I've been looking at the BEAM - be very interested on what you think of the bass sound when you getting it working properly
  6. Can’t offer any input on the gear - but I’d love to hear the results!
  7. Would Basecamp personal work for this? https://basecamp.com The Basecamp personal plans are free and have chat, calendars, todo lists and can share documents. Just make sure you sign up for the right type do acc 👍
  8. Really enjoying the series, who doesn’t love a bit of Hank Williams. However I feel short changed now I’ve discovered we’ve lost hours of the documentary. 😭. Anywhere we can see the full version in the UK?
  9. @Brunobass Not got to see Seth live yet - bet he puts on a good gig! Got very excited when I walked in to the Billy Bragg gig to see Ride merch as for a split second I thought that was an amazing double bill Then sad when I realised there were 2 stages in the venue 🤣
  10. @BrunoBass Seems there were a few decent gigs on in Brum last night. As well as Billy Bragg and Frank, Ride were playing too!
  11. Saw Fontaines D.C. on Monday and Billy Bragg on Sunday - busy week 😀 Nothing booked until next year now ☹️
  12. When I saw the thread title I instantly thought of Babylon Zoo... then I opened the thread 🤣
  13. I can't add my own website as I've not got a band (or been able to play bass for nearly a year after an operation on my finger ) - I do design and build websites for a living though (and digital strategy/consulting etc - just call me Mr Fancypants ). Quite a few of the sites posted aren't responsive, i.e. adapt to be viewed correctly on a mobile phone - I'd really recommend you make your sites responsive as most traffic these days is from mobile devices. I know I've googled a band on my phone after seeing them live. Responsive sites also get ranked higher in google searches than non-responsive. I didn't spot anyone with an email sign up and I think you are missing a trick - if someone cares enough to look at your site, ask them to sign up to an email list! Then you can send out regular (or at least semi-regular) emails with gig/tour dates and remind people that you are avalible for booking etc. People who have actively signed up are far more likely to turn up to your gigs, and you don't just have to rely on the venue promoting either. Is super easy and cheap too! The two I'd recommend are MailChimp (has a free tier up to 2000 subscribers) - https://mailchimp.com, and Campaign Monitor (https://www.campaignmonitor.com/b/). Both super easy to get started and cheap promotion compared to printing flyers. Hope thats helpful to someone. Give me a yell if you have any questions. And good luck with getting those gigs!
  14. I wasn't a big fan of Radioheads early stuff, post Kid A though I love! I don't think they got interesting until OK Computer.
  15. Another vote for https://www.discogs.com - you'll also be able to get an idea of what a record is worth. Anyone have their collection catalogued on Discogs? I got to about 60 records in a private collection then got fed up of adding them Quite scary what the few records we added would be worth! :/
