  1. Giving the Mono Betty short strap a go, nice and comfortable so far 👍

      I have one of these, very comfy. However, you might find that the buckle slips. What I did was, once I'd found the right length, just put a couple of stitches each end of the buckle - sorted.

  2. Update! Glad to be back! My custom Overwater should be here within the month & I've been successfully nominated to the Musicians Union Exec Committee :)

      Cheers Phill. It’s part of an ever growing system... I built a new module yesterday, that’s not in this photo, and I have another 6 to build...3CC09450-F1F4-4F44-8D23-E8E7D04CCF2C.thumb.jpeg.b2f8fc65acaeb235c38adb44a6f8f850.jpeg

      Hello from another fellow South Walian. 
      Nice precis of what looks to have been a busy few months :)

    3. Phill


      Hey JapanAxe! Good to know! 

    4. Phill


      Thanks Marc!

  8. Damm 😂 Second thoughts then... a really nice wide leather strap I found in a local music store!
  9. Best - Got to be my Overwater Custom (bought it but haven't picked it up yet) Worst - Due to a mixup with many string manufacturers/companies a tonne of strings which I know I will never use 👍 It's been a good year though!
  10. I've always read dots, sightread & charts from nn early age. In my experience the only times I've actually used them is working in the pits, cruises & my own teaching practice. Even doing sessions they normally use give me a chart or tell me the basic structure. It's a great skill to have, but it's use is sadly declining (for me and players I know)
  11. My custom Overwater will be ready to pick up in the new year!!!! :D

  12. Good news! My ear is working again!! Still ave to have another op but I can hear 😁

      It's good to hear!

    2. discreet


      Yay! ...I said, 'YAY!'

  13. I've been  very quiet as of late. I've gone profoundly deaf in the right ear due to an infection & have not gigged or undertook any music work in weeks. I've got an exploitative operation tomorrow & my first gig in months Saturday. Look after your ear health.

      Ooooo, sorry to hear that Phill. Hope you're not suffering, since the gig. And I hope they sort you out, asap :)

    4. Phill


      Thanks Marc, The gig went well but there was such an overwhelming amount of noise coming into my good ear, it was hard to concentrate.

  14. Went to the Welsh premiere of Bohemian Rhapsody last Wednesday, really enjoyed it too. A few inconsistencies but overall thourougly enjoyed it 👍
