  1. Ha ha 😂 You'd never get a part in TOWIE! I wouldn't want to live on that's street. Thankfully I'm by the forest which is very nice. Moved here from Peckham. Different vibes.
  2. It's the sound of premiership footballers Lambo's you need to worry about around here these days! 😂😂😂
  3. 8x10 in the lounge! Yes! You are a legend my friend (and your wife is a saint).
  4. You'll get £100's worth of pleasure just starring at it an imagining the power 😂😂😂
  5. For sale is my SWR Henry 8x8 speaker cab with a full flight case. I bought this in the 90's so it's from the SWR heyday with the cool diamond grille. I'm not going to lie, it's been gigged a lot so it shows plenty of signs of use. Still sounds great though, kicks out some serious volume, and loads of bottom end. Just currently languishing in my shed as I've moved on to a smaller lighter rig. The cab itself does have tilt back handle with wheels so is more portable than than might appear. The flight case is by packhorse and is totally bomb proof. There is panel on the back of the case which plugs into the cab, so you can just tilt the case up, take off the front and you're ready to go. I've put this on for £100, so you'll get an awful lot of cab for your money. But have no idea what's it's worth. I know big heavy cabs aren't really the "in" thing any more, so willing to entertain sensible offers. The case might be worth more to you than the cab! Anyway, collection only from Buckhurst Hill, Essex, given the size and weight.
  6. For sale is my Trace Elliot Dual SMX Compressor Pedal - complete with all important 18V power supply with 2.5mm power fitting (normal Boss is 2.1mm). No trades please as money will go towards funding another project. Following the recent purchase of a TE GP12 SMX preamp which has this compressor built in so this is now surplus to requirements. It's a great sounding compressor, punching well above it's weight at the price. Here's what Ovnilab.com say "Unusual features include: separate knobs to control the amount of compression for the high and low sides of the crossover; a "tilting" EQ knob that emphasizes either the highs or the lows; and a second footswitch to bypass only the high band of the compression (meaning only the lows would get compressed). The center frequency of the crossover is 350Hz, but it has a shallow slope so the upper and lower bands actually overlap between 225Hz and 900Hz. The compression attack is not adjustable, but they preset a fast attack for the high band and a slow attack for the low band, which seems like a good setup. The noise level is fairly low--not the quietest, but acceptable. It does roll off a bit of both the lows and highs. The overall tone and action are quite smooth and musical, clean and punchy, at most comp settings; only at the highest settings it can sound a bit "artificial". At high ratios there can be a noticeable "pop" or "tic" artifact when the threshold is crossed. The maximum ratio is 8:1, so even at the highest settings it does not act as a limiter on the strongest peaks. This pedal is not quite up to the same audio standards and capabilities as the Rane or FEA dual-band comps, but it does sound quite good, and the differences would be less apparent while playing live on stage. Dual-band compression in general can allow much more finger-articulation sound and less "swallowing of the highs" than a single-band system, so the Trace SMX is a worthy contender if those qualities are important to you, and if you find one at a fair price." Price includes postage in UK mainland. Or can be collected (COVID safe) from Buckhurst Hill (Essex), or I'm at my office Chancery Lane in London one-ish days a week.
  7. For sale is my MXR80 Bass DI+ Not getting as much as it used to due to other gear purchases, but still a great sounding an useful pedal so shame to let it sit there. In used but pretty decent condition. No trades please as money will go towards funding another project. If you're not familiar with this pedal, it a great all rounded. The EQ has a good range of useable sounds and nice sounding contour switch to kick in a pre-set EQ. The Overdrive goes from subtle to pretty gnarly and the blend control is a brilliant feature to retain some solid bottom end. There's the noise gate if things start to get a bit out of control! EQ and overdrive can be kicked in and out with separate foot switches. You get the full range of parallel, line an balanced XLR outs. Battery, 9v supply or phantom gives you a good range of power options. Solidly built and a great gig bag get you out of trouble accessory to keep on you. From the manufacturer "The Bass D.I.+ features a D.I., separate clean and distortion channels, an array of controls to fine-tune your sound, an a noise gate trigger control to eliminate hum and hiss" Price includes postage in UK mainland. Or can be collected (COVID safe) from Buckhurst Hill (Essex), or I'm at my office Chancery Lane in London one-ish days a week.
  8. I bought a Fender Jazz Bass Special from Simon. It was a very smooth transaction. Simon was communicative and the bass was shipped promptly and received as expected. Would recommend Simon and a good seller who is easy to deal with. Thanks, Ben
