  1. Around 500 Watts from a distorting head into a cab rated at 250 Watts (Genzler BA 10-2) is going to end in tears. Sorry if this has been posted before but I could not find it my search. Disclaimers: I like Andertons as a dealer and normally enjoy their videos. This one started off well and then descended into a certain lack of technical understanding. "We are getting that hot smell again" at 24:25. I hope they didn't sell the cab on to an unsuspecting punter. Genzler gear is all I need these days. I have two of their BA 10-2 cabs and a Magellan 350 (the head best matched to this cab) and the rig works superbly well for upright and bass guitar. This is not to deny that the other amps are really good too. Used correctly that is.
  2. Marcus now works for the Sims Guitar Works in Kent. He is there on their Facebook page.
  3. Dave Swift comes across as a great person as well as a top bass player. I really enjoyed the video. Lee too, he might not know his euphonium from his tuba but his shop appears to be succeeding where too many others have failed. He must be doing something right. Or wrong. I fancy trying a 6-string now, as I have to read parts and I have known for a while that what Dave said about 6 strings helping is true. Another bass when I am trying to thin the collection? Oops.
  4. I was told he had moved on when I was last there. I wish him well - he gave me good advice.
  5. UHF (Channel 38) £85.00 for one year and £155.00 for two years. If users decide to purchase this type of licence there is a discount for purchasing direct from our website: £75.00 for one year and £135.00 for two years. https://www.ofcom.org.uk/manage-your-licence/radiocommunication-licences/pmse/pmse-licence-info
  6. Bought fleabag's Bassbone V2. As described, packed well, quick delivery. A 5-star transaction. Many thanks.
  7. I will second the Markbass Nano 300 suggestion. Simple but with effective tone controls. Small and light enough to fit in a gig bag. Speakon out and the usual DI settings. I cannot comment on the max power output but it drives a Genzler 10” cab with plenty of headroom against a big band.
  8. Thank you for the Gretsch suggestion. I have been thinking that short scale might be easier for me while reading parts.
  9. A P and MM rare? Take a scan through the Sandbergs at Bass Direct. I have a PJ myself, so this is an observation.
  10. Not directly relevant, but I found this interesting: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xTxbP7M5i2c
  11. Having seen the bass and heard a few notes ringing out I can confirm it looks to be a really excellent bass irrespective of construction and price. If I had not recently bought bassace's Martin I might be planning my trip down to Chipping Norton. If it is something you have been looking for I would not hesitate.
  12. I think you really have to be able to work with the presentation style, which is (or was) unedited and I agree with Newfoundfreedom because it just did not work for me. Scott is a great player and really likeable so I feel a bit mean admitting to my disappointment, but I just found my attention wandering during the lessons I tried. We all have different learning styles though so it might work for you. If you play upright, take a look at Geoff Chalmers’ offerings on Discover Double Bass. I find them excellent; focused and to the point. That suits my learning style.
