  1. Roger Waters, for all his alleged faults, is still edgy - even in his old age - and I like that. All this recent attention prompted me to watch the 'Us and Them' tour film from a couple of year ago and there's a rawness to the music that is often lacking in performers as they get older, Gilmour's comparable efforts being a case in point.
  2. people seem to rate these https://www.studiospares.com/Microphones/DI-Boxes/Studiospares-DI-BoxPreamp_458190.htm
  3. 78 is Heart of Glass by Blondie
  4. It's interesting how we've come the same conclusion - I've not come across this guy before but I watched about 2 mins of this, got the general gist of the issue and thought 'blown out of all proportion'
  5. could it be the string making contact with the pickup pole piece ?
  6. Like you, I started out using stubbies in whatever thickness it was that allowed a bit of flex but found that they broke too easily. I then changed to tortex jazz picks but eventually got fed up of the scratchy noise they made on the strings. The best compromise I've found are standard fender heavy picks that give a nice bright round tone and are very resilient. The only downside is that they are flat and smooth so don't offer much grip - not a problem for me so much but might be if you have sweaty fingers.
  7. Hi Andy - another wakey lad here
  8. surely it's not a good idea to post your bank details on an open forum?
  9. they're all good but that first guy is stunning on the gnr track

    Zoom B1 Four

    I've had one for a couple of weeks now - I think it's great. You can't go wrong for the money
  11. my CTM 30 is a bit baffling in that regard. I spoke to Dave Green (the amp's designer) when I first got it and he advised that 12 noon on all the dials was pretty much flat so that's how I ran it for a while but always felt it was very bright. Eventually I did a bit of knob twiddling and found much more pleasing tones with some very wierd settings. The eq knobs all seem to affect each other to quite a large degree so I can only suggest playing about with it and not being afraid to try settings that might seem 'wrong'
  12. Love this colour - I built my own cheapo version of this bass last year and had a go at a light relic finish (mainly because my spray job wasn't perfect)
  13. yes, there is copper strip bridge earth. I haven't taken the pickup out yet to check thats it's connected properly but the eveidence suggests that it is
