  1. 1990 Gordon-Smith Gypsy, 1974 Gibson SG Special.
  2. I've written-off gigging this year. Although there's a pub locally that has one-man band behind perspex. Could be outside. Could be lies. I don't really fancy rehearsals for now either.
  3. I remember entering a competition of his before via Facebook. I got messages on Facebook (cough) Messenger virtually everyday. I requested that he stop nicely. And unnicely. In the end I just blocked him (or rather the Facebook presense of his Academy). And I stopped subbing to his YouTube too.
  4. Thanks for your advice chaps. I avoid buying from Amazon for most things as there have been tales of counterfeit strings for years. I usually check prices on Strings Direct, but usually go with a couple of sellers I've used on eBay in the past. I ended up going with Gear4Music in the end, and decided to try the Warwick Reds as suggested by @Lozz196 rather than the RotoBass or Fender as originally intended. I've bought two sets, one of which will go on my Bitsa P. I can't remember what went on there last, possibly GE Bass Signature Strings for a Fiver on eBay, and the four months I've spent Shielding from Covid has killed them.
  5. I generally just do an eBay search for certain brands at certain price-points but want other opinions at the moment. I've been using Swing Bass for a couple of years. I like the sound, but not the price. The bottom two string die too quick for me. I go through two or three sets a year. Thinking of returning to Rotobass or Fender.
  6. Presently just my Squier VM Jazz upgraded with CTS pots and Fender MIJ pickups; Frankenstein P-bass with Westbury body, no-name J neck, CTS pots, Fender himass bridge and SD Quarterpounders
  7. My Hartke 410 had a farty speaker when I got it (I bought it used). I put a Chinese tub between the grill and the speaker for a few weeks. The cone had lifted from the chassis or something.
  8. Clicked onto link to get it into my YouTube history so I can listen later. The bass came through on my ten second listen on the phone!
  9. If in doubt about pickups give Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders a try. I agree with replacing pots and jack socket. I did this with my VM Jazz and bitsa Precision. If you're on a tight budget or don't want to sink a lot of dough into a full upgrade, this was a great improvement. I got my kits from a guy on eBay at something like £15 each.
  10. My sister gave me A Farewell to Kings during a clear out of her tapes in the mid-80s. I loved it and when I went to find something else I liked the cover of Caress of Steel. I've bought a few since, some good stuff but the first two I heard is all I listen to them now.
  11. The venue's we play at pump their own music through their house system and we wave like mad when we set up and want to start.
  12. 50w Sound City head into Kustom 210. I had been using a Hartke 410 but that was just too heavy to hump upstairs.
  13. Twenty years ago I was told I looked like that bloke from Gomez. I think it was th specs and the denim jacket wot swung it
