    The series has been great. The only one I skipped was Suzi Quatro, she was copping a strop about them not playing her xmas single and I gave up on it. It might have got better, but not much of a sense of humour was being exhibited.

    Been following the podcast since episode one and I've listened to all of them save for that one. Seemed to have no sense of humour and even less a sense of humility. Lasted 15 minutes before I bailed.

    OK, its for a predominantly vocal performance - but its perfect in showing that he's earning his money there. I'm guessing that talent are all on headset mics, so no artist control of mic technique. They care about singing - the rest, the reverb, EQ, delays are all under this man's control. Every line, for every performer, making sure every piece of diction is perfectly reproduced.

    What I do know though... is that I can guarantee that nobody in the audience appreciates that work that he has been doing all night.

    'pin hell. Absolute artistry. 

  3. For sale is a set of EMG45 pickups, a TW (splittable) and a J plus a quick connect wiring loom (V/V/T/T). Also included is the quick connect push pull pot and the connector I ordered from EMG for the TW as well as a loom.
    The TW gives some great tonal options with the J. I brought these a couple of weeks ago in order to swap out a pair of 45DCs in my Yamaha but have since realised I prefer the original pairing.   
    In terms of wiring the push-pull, there's wiring diagrams on the EMG website.

    Check out the JOYO PXL-PRO 8 Effect Pedal Loop Switching System.

    Thats where I started my looper search. 

    But all looper roads lead to boss es8.

    Harley Benton do an exact copy of it, called the FXL8 Pro. I've got one and it's worked amazingly and has served me very well over the years, only stopped using it when I retired my pedals 18 months ago and moved to a Helix Floor.

    @FarFromTheTrees it's available for sale at a VERY reasonable "make me an offer as I need the space in my parts drawer" price if you're interested! 😂

    Always like the bass tone of Dua Lipa's bass player.

    Couldn't make out what bass and multifx he's using - love to know



    Loving that. Thanks for sharing. 

    Looks like a modern Fender PJ with the Noiseless pickups. Guessing a Kemper floor? Can't quite make it out but the Kemper seems a logical 'nowadays' choice for going straight into the desk for modelling stuff.

    It's more than a bump: for the £50 off I'd pay the extra.

    Took a punt and it arrived this morning. Apart from the damage to the paint, it's a great bass. Proper P-Bass vibe to it. Quick setup and it's playing and sounding ace.

    TBH, the fact that the paint damage was on the back was the reason I went for it. Can repair/make good it in due course with a bit of work (aka a furlough project), just doesn't bother me that much at the moment. Everything else is good on it and I've saved 60 quid.

  7. Up in front of a couple of thousand folks last night at the Beer on the Wye festival in Hereford. Last on, the crowd were in fine form having seeming sampled quite extensively from Great Britain's finest breweries 😂

    WHAT a hoot. Did an hour and a half set finishing at 11pm and the crowd wanting more. Due to the curfew, we couldn't oblige unfortunately but we'd have loved to have carried on. One of those "wow, that was really special" gigs.

    We were preceded by a great band called Fired Up. Brilliant set, if the bass player is on here, terrific work fellas.






  8. Shifting pedals that have made way for the Helix on my pedalboard, I've got a Line6 M9 Stompbox Modeller for sale.

    Fabulous pedal, which I brought when I downsized from the larger M13. Full of top quality Line6 goodness for bass. It's been indestructible and dependable and has formed the centre point of my pedal board for a few years. The only issue is that I've lost one of the parameter knobs.

    Comes with box and PSU.



  9. Another one of the "now got a Helix" sales, my Source Audio Envelope Filter Pro + Hot Hand. 

    It's in great condition and I've loved using this envelope. Sounds fab and the ability to program it is so useful.

    Comes boxed with a Hot Hand which apparently (according to the vendor) has a fault whereby it doesn't turn off so once on, it'll keep powered on until the charge runs out. As I didn't buy the pedal for the Hot Hand functionality, and have consequently never used it anyway, I've no idea whether or not it's faulty or not. 

    £110 + postage from Solihull.

  10. Having recently gone down the Helix route, my TC Spectracomp is now surplus to requirements so is for sale.

    Great condition. £60 INCLUDING UK postage from Solihull.


  11. Having gone down the Helix route, I'm no longer using my EBS Microbass II so it's up for sale. 

    In good condition, sounds fab and comes with the original box. Velco on the bottom but can remove before shipping.

    £145 INC UK postage from Solihull.
