  1. I tried a G & L something or other in a shop once. I really really wanted to like it, but sadly it just didn't do it for me.
  2. to explosive effect I guess.
  3. Totally agree. I generally have pretty catholic tastes in music, but I couldn't see anything of merit in that. Seen simialr performances before, but generally from a gang of 16 year old on their first gig. Unpolished is one thing, crap is another. (IMHO of course)
  4. That is just absolutely appalling. Glad that I don't bother with the show anymore.
  5. Was that at a wedding in Shropshire by any chance? 10th August? Edit - Ah, I see you're in France, so probably not.
  6. Take it to your doctor's and let the National Elf Service sort it out for you.
  7. I have both a Bass State B150 and a DBS 7400. Both are excellent, and both very heavy, so don't get used so much these days (I'm hardly playing anyway). THe DB7400 really is a monster 400W RMS continuous, with a peak of 4000W (due to the Class H amplifier) (Class H = Heft ??) The great thing with both of these is that the valve/SS blend really makes a difference to the sound, unlike many of the more modern "Valve Preamp" amplifiers.
  8. Wow, you're really into your small print.
  9. Well spotted and I stand corrected! I obviously count as a professional user for some reason.
  10. If that is the case then I am astounded that RS still sell it. https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/solders/2954820/
  11. And most places, including RS. I don't think it is llegal for small scale & repair work? But cannot be used in consumer electronics or volume manufacturing anymore.
  12. As already said, to a large extent sound proof also means airtight. This means sealling all the joints! Its, worth noting that if you build a 6 x 2m stud wall but leave a 1mm gap all round its like having a 144 (5.5") diameter hole in the wall, which you wouldn't expect to be sound proof! The weak points are doors and windows. Double glazing helps, but use a panel that has different thicknesses of glass (so they don't both resonate at the same frequency), and you may need a further secondary unit (different thickness again). Door needs to be very substantial (I built one on staggered stud design - a two man lift) and multiple seals around the edges. Alternatively have two well sealed doors with the wall thickness air gap in between. Cavity walls are not as good as you might think, and are probably now the weak point in my set up, in particular the inner skin transmits the sound to adjacent rooms in the house. However no complaints from neighbours, so I'll leave those alone. My solution to the ventilation problem is to take a break and leave the door open when ever it gets too stuffy.
  13. All this about racism and sex in songs, but we haven't mentioned any songs about murder? Eg: I shot the sherrif Foulsom prison Blues Bad like Jesse James Hey Joe Ruby (he didn't, but he wanted to) Delilah (almost for got this one) Bohemian Rhapsody etc etc. Surely even in todays "Snowflake" environment murder has still got to be still worse than sexism or racism?
  14. I have also seen them twice. First time was brilliant. Seond time, a few years later, would have been brilliant had I not seen them the first time! Ie a bit of a one trick pony.
