  1. TC Electronic BG250 Combo Amplifier

    I've had the 208 version for a couple of years. I only use it for learning stuff with guitarist. I did upgrade the speakers to the Fane's mentioned above, which wasn't really necessary. I've had no problems with it at all.

    The prices are not believable.

    Are these new or have I not noticed before? ...

    So Maradona doesn't like flats?
  8. Just Discovered A 'New' Bassist

    Maybe I'm imagining it, but I seem to recall reading or hearing an interview with Rainey where he says about 'Kid Charlemagne' that he himself couldn't play it entirely true to the original. Or something to that sort of effect.
  9. I was in a band where the drummer had a Porsche 911. Forunately he also had a large BMW SUV. He was very organised and could keep accurate time.
  10. It really shouldn't take long but it does depend on how much time is given to it and whether anyone does their homework.
  11. Yep, had that experience more than once ... and it wasn't just one chord that was wrong ... IMHO If someone thought my chord/arpeggio was not right I'd like to hear about it.
  12. Foam under the strings.

    Too complicated, I'd say.
