  1. I play in a band that has keys, sax, and guitar. We aren't quiet. Play mostly weddings. And i play with a MarkBass LM2 and a single TKS S112. I'm the only part of the band that doesn't go through our RCF PA, and i'm fine. I don't need to go louder. I don't think the issue is the Walkabout isn't loud enough. I think the issue is everyone wants to be too loud, and/or are probably too high in the mix *runs before he gets lynched*
  2. Yeh ive played both. Both basses were really well made. That almost goes without saying at that price point. The Sei basses were the best basses ive ever played though. So if it were between the two for me, i'd get a Sei
  3. Me too. I use 2 X S112s. Great cabs. Ive gone to move them on in the past, then realised the mistake i was making.
  4. I used to like Silverchair. Cant remember what the bass lines were like tbh
  5. We were asked for a Ronan Keating song. "you know the one about money being too tight to mention" WTF on so many levels
  6. Whatever floats your boat 😂
  7. Would consider part trade against Limelight Jazz
  8. Yeh this is original as far as im aware. Hadnt noticed that, but as Warwickhunt says, easy enough fix. Ill get it sorted
  9. Thanks Dan, it is a fantastic bit of craftmanship
  10. Thanks Marc. Appreciate that
  11. Sorry, i'd forgotten to check the serial number. Will do it tonight
  12. I will have a look for you when i get home
  13. Ah thanks, i didn't know that was the case.
  14. Didn't think this day would ever come, but here it is. For sale is my Warwick Streamer stage 1 that was made in 1987. I bought it on this forum about 7 years ago, and it's been my number 1 gigging bass since then. Probably played close to 300 gigs with it. For it's age, (over 30 years old!! ) its in really good condition. Price drop because there is a bass i want. If it sells, it'll go back to starting price. £1400 But there are a couple of bad bits...... * There is some player wear above the pickup, where my thumb rests, and i guess where the previous owners thumb rested. *The pickups are original, and have worn back where the strings have hit them over time. *There is also a tiny bit of damage to the back which i've tried to photograph. But there is no neck crack. Which is a common theme on these basses. And the rest of it is in cracking nick. I've really looked after it. The good bits..... * It has a low , low action, and one of the smallest, thinnest profiled necks you'll ever play. If you like to play a bass that has a bit of a chunkier neck, this is not the bass for you. * It comes in at 40mm at the nut, 53mm at the 12th and 60mm at the 24th fret. * The bass is light at 3.8kg on my digital scales. 3812g if you want precision. * Cherry body and 5 piece Cherry and Wenge through neck * Original EMG pickups and Gold Hardwear * The 4 controls are Vol, Bal, Bass and Treble. With those control options, and that pickup, you have a lot of tonal options under your fingertips. Which is one of the reasons i loved this bass. I never fiddled with the amp. I play in a wedding band and could go from dub reggae, to motown, to rock no problem. The Swiss army knife of basses!! Here are some pictures. Ive tried to include as many as possible. Any more you want let me know. Apologise that they are poor quality, i only have my phone to take the photos with. Its hard to get a good impression of the bass through photos, and for this reason i really would prefer the potential buyer to come and try it out. I live in South Wales. You are welcome to bring your entire amp and speaker set up, or you can use mine. I will post, but it will be up to the buyer to arrange courier, and it will be at their own risk. I will do everything i can to package it up safely, but i wont take responsibility for what happens after it has left my hands!! Only trade i might potentially be interested in is a 2 band Stingray, preferably an older one. Any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for looking Edit to add the strings on it are old, because that's how i like them. So a new buyer might want to get a new set, if you like a bit of zing in your low end . OOOoooOoOoOhh
  15. FFAF bass player is on here , i'm sure he would remember that 😁
  16. One of the best for that!! Can drive right up to the playing area
  17. Its called Pencoed House. We've played a few venues that have looked similar recently. The cake was delicious 😁
  18. Bit off topic, but i train dogs, and we had a client in last week with a puppy called Jura!! I liked the name, and now i know where the inspiration came from!
  19. Ahhh ok. That explains it then. We were expecting people to go. The photographer had given us the heads up to be fair. But it was still weird when everyone left!!
  20. Had a Saturday and Sunday wedding gigs this weekend. Both local too, which is a bonus. Weird situation on the Sunday though. Weather was horrible all day, so they hadn't been able to get outside for any photos. Before going on the photographer said, if a chance came he'd have to take everyone outside for group shots. I was assured too, that it was the "golden hour" (i've no idea). Anyway, about 3 songs into our first set, everyone leaves. Everyone. Only people left in the room was the caterers. Was quite a strange moment!! I've played to small crowds before, during time in originals bands. Never happened at a wedding though 😆 We carried on playing. And in about 3 songs time, everyone came back in. On a side note, it was a great venue for sound.
  21. Can only echo Stephens message. Great group of people on here. Thank you so much.
  22. Looks good! Fonkay playing too
