  1. Bought a MarkBass Little Mark III bass amp (white edition) from James last week. What a beauty this amp is! It arrived very well packaged and quick. Great communication throughout the sale. He even included 2 rack ears and the power lead at no extra cost...ace!! It sounds awesome thru my 2 Mark bass cabs. Thanks again James
  2. What a great amp....thank you for the smooth transaction.
  3. The amp arrived this morning and sounds awesome thru my Markbass cabs. Thanks again!
  4. Just checking if you got my message...PM'd you earlier today.
  5. Gorgeous! I'll get the same one of these days (Jetglo with white banding), I've wanted one sine I opened the BTO album in the '70's and there was Fred Turner standing on stage wrapped in it. Used to have an all white one but stupidly sold it, [email protected]!
  6. In the 1970's (1974-82) there was only 1 amp I used. I don't remember the model number or whatever but was an Ampeg (the SVT hadn't come out yet), 100 watts and was a thing of beauty, looks and sound. I had it coupled with an Ampeg 2x 15 speaker cab, the one with the cut at the back to allow for the built in wheels to work, and the handle(bar) tat the top to flip it like a sack truck to move it about. '82 -'86 I used a Marshall bass head with 2, 4 x 12 cabs. Don't remember the wattage but it was seriously loud. I'd been growing up in Canada during these years. Late '86 I moved to the UK.
  7. I've got one of these. Bought it from a guy on this site at the start of the year. It instantly became my "go to" bass. Amazingly slim and fast neck (for my small hands), Gibson Humbucker pickups, Gotoh tuners, Babicz bridge and professionally set up. Sweet! I hope you enjoy yours as much
  8. Has anyone used one of these with bass guitar? If so, what are your views?
  9. "Steve's Music" in Montreal ( downtown and the West Island), Canada. Their catchphrase, "If we don't have it, you don't need it" . Used to buy all my gear there when I lived over there.
  10. Drove up to fellow BC member FinnDave to purchase/collect a bass he was selling. Had a great chat for an hour; he's a top bloke...and the bass, an Epiphone Thunderbird Classic Pro IV with Babicz bridge and Gotoh tuners...wow, what a bass. It's immediately become my prime gigging bass. Awesome feel, action, sound, looks...the total package. And the neck's almost 2 inches shorter than my Burns Bison, perfect for my short arms. Thanks BassChat for hooking us up.

    Still Pics of Us

    I play in a band called The Silhouettes and we're a covers band playing mostly the 60's tunes with some '70's, '80's and contemporary thrown in. We play about 45 or so weekends a year and I've yet to get any live footage. Here's some stills tho. I've attached a couple of tunes that we recorded live in the studio (with a vocal overdub). There's more energy live tho, but still, it's what I/we play 02 Track 2.wma 03 Track 3.wma
