  18. Hey all, expect to get a bit of stick for this but hey ho, its bothering me So 20 yrs as a Bass Player, I've been very lucky and successful, most ambitions achieved, (played every major venue in the UK)and open minded too modern ideas etc, had to play a successful event last night (*sold out last November) and in rehearsal my modern ish Bass amp packed in ,,quick ring round, and the drummers brother came to the rescue with a large 80s Peavey tank and an Amp peg cab OMFG, The frequency's were amazing, used a couple of basses, the active cut through , the passive was great I loved it, the engineer loved it, the audience went mad, and even a world class engineer in the audience gave praise, annoyingly this rig has stood unused for 20 yrs, it was far better than any of the rigs I've owned since my Trace Elliot days in the early 90s, I have do desire to be a dinosaur, and no disrespect to the modern light stuff, but cannot these amazing sounds be reproduced, yes I've done the massive 8x10 stuff at festivals, but to get a punch like that in a venue was phenomenal, are we on the right track ?
  19. Hey All, I've a Ashdown combo that used in anger last night the output dropped to almost zero,,worked when I kicked it, but then repeatedly has this massive volume drop issue all evening, is this a familiar and quick fix?,,Ive only one more gig to do later this week, before it retires anyway,,might have to hire in,,any thoughts?
  20. Madly, just remembered my password, been yrs since visited, and er, well, guess it's kind of comforting to find nothing has changed lol.......
  21. Hi guys, it's been a while, so be gentle, haven't read every reply, and some great points here, all bands have to be treated like a business, and you have to have an aim, which, for most, is to play live, have a following, earn some cash, which as a start up band usually needs to be invested back into the project, and have a great time, any business has start up costs, and if your seriously going for it, and you need to get on the scene, the odd forty quid could be an investment, certainly agree that it should not be the norm, but until you have a name and some followers, you really aren't in a position to throw your weight around, all us old timers have been in this position, some you get right, some you lose, you learn on your feet, at this level seem bands that have got paid expenses etc, and then put three times back over the bar, it's all relative,,,over time, and if your guys are entertaining and want to take it seriously, then that becomes a different issue, hope this helps,
  22. Ha, crikey, now here is a thing, was quite a crush in that crowd, was the mandela concert, was three rows from the front when this happened, great memory, thanks for posting.
