  1. C'est la vie Anyway, as many people will tell you here, this is an amazing cab in just left the factory condition that I'd like to move on quite quickly so I'm happy to talk cash offers. Cheers Chris

    Sorry to hear about the crap you're going through. Your description of my responses on here is accurate in every sense and I apologise to the folks on here for that. I was a Sir Richard Head III, 100%, no mitigation. I'm also sorry that the gear we discussed for your charity didn't work out, although having checked I've no idea what the story is there. Anyway, if you need to move on gear, do not see this forum as a stinky poo show just because on occasion an individual member acts like a Sir Richard Head III, there are some extraordinary people here, who will support, advise and humour as appropriate. Ped, my apologies. BC members, my apologies. Alex, my apologies with the condition that I really do wish i hadn't ripped my finger open and carried the residual anger about it for about a year. No, scrap that, my apologies. I think there are moments in time when you realise you need to perhaps take a good look at yourself, so please trust me when i say I am. Anyway, back to the pedal Chris
  3. We did a festival years ago, and the live radio broadcast moved to a discussion of the bands to date during our set. There were apparently two complaints phoned in, one from the singer’s brother, the other from his mum
  4. Ah, the Friday Rock Show, seems a million years ago
  5. I have to make do with the sense of satisfaction I get hearing bands I once auditioned for on the radio
  6. Wood, as every bass player knows, is a very unpredictable substance! I made the same mistake cutting down a dying tree in our garden; what seemed a small branch came down like a ton of lead and pinned me to the ground. Comical, yes, dangerous, hell yes
  7. Hi Alex I'm not sure that anything I said contradicts the above, but clearly you see my initial account as different. No problem. I do think that in the context of the above, both members who've posted in this thread having checked the same unit on their cab have said that they've likewise noted is at a potential risk, and several other see it as poor design and/or finishing. I'm pretty sure other owners will identify this as being the case also; had I titled this thread 'Check your BF cab for sharp metal" it might already be running to 100 posts? I'll leave it here Alex, I won't say any more in this thread. You've acknowledged yourself that you could have dealt better with it at the time, but I should probably have made it much clearer then how angry I was, although in the grand scheme of things at that time I had other things to deal with that were more pressing. But this doesn't change the fact that to my mind the poor design/QC issue remains. As I said above, if the BC community think I'm being an overly sensitive whinger, so be it. If the consensus is that there is poor design/QC, then perhaps it's an opportunity for BC to improve the quality of their products and customer service. Chris
  8. I hope I made it clear that I was not interested in legal action at the time and most certainly not now. However, regarding your comment about valve amps, you'll note that the manufacturers of some valve amps do have warnings about volume and and weight in both the manuals and sometimes on the gear itself (Mesa for example) Your comment that there is a design flaw that needs looking at is my sentiment.
  9. Hi Frank, I'm selling for quite a few reasons to be honest, money's a bit tight, no gigs obviously and no rehearsals since February. Yes, Alex and I have had something of a public disagreement and perhaps I'm less well disposed to BF on that basis, but ultimately despite the fact that this cab is extremely good in audio and usability terms (sounds great and is a one hand lift), I think that much like my amplification, I prefer using something a bit older and heavier. I doubt I'll replace this until COVID is well out of the way - during which time a few hundred extra quid in the bank will be helpful - and when I do it'll probably be an old Mesa Road Ready or Powerhouse series cab, I just feel at home with that gear in a way that I never really have with lightweight. My therapist is as confused as am I

    Sandberg relics really rub me up the wrong way in that respect
  11. I suspect you’ve missed the key point, the bass is 100% genuine, it’s just in Nashville, not Tenerife
  12. Which is of course what he should have done for me this time last year
