  1. Yeh it's works for us. It's like i said, you can get way more. More doesn't always mean better though. Just my opinion. A lot of the weddings we play at will have lighting already there. Whether it be in the floor, or behind you in a starlight effect , or LEDs already in situ, or the DJ etc.
  2. I have just found this The LED cans werent set up at this point, but it shows how we use the LED wash bar thingys (i dont know the "official name")
  3. I have just looked and i don't have a picture of it all set up sorry! These are the LED cans: https://www.thomann.de/gb/stairville_stage_tri_led_bundle_complete.htm Here are the LED wash bars: https://www.thomann.de/gb/stairville_led_bar_240_8_cw_ww_dmx.htm Disco ball thingy and moving LED can were bought second hand. This video shows the LED wash bars, but don't have anything with all of it in action
  4. My wedding band runs two floor wash lights/bars. We have two sets of 4 LED cans, mounted on poles. A disco ball type of thing, that sits on the floor, and two moving LED cans. Very rarely use all of them together, as i think it can look a bit much. But good lighting goes a long way to making a band look more professional IMO
  5. I'm not sure of best advice here, but I would personally be speaking with eBay or PayPal to make sure you are covered if there is any doubt. I had similar thoughts to you, but ignored them. Won't make that mistake again!
  6. You're going off formed rather than first album released.....challenge accepted
  7. I watched The Ataris in TJs about ...15 years ago maybe?! The 1st band on were a local band, and although i didnt much like their songs, the mix was great. Could hear everything. Wasnt crazy volume levels. Ataris came on, and it was as if the sound guy just pushed all the volume sliders to max. Couldn't hear feck all
  8. @Grahambythesea sorry for the delay. It weighs 4.1kg and is 42mm at the nut, with a fairly shallow neck. Hope that helps. Thanks
  9. Yep for sure. And there are plenty of threads talking about the benefits of other bass amps and rigs etc. This is the only one about FR/FR, so that's why i'm asking about them here That is not the kind of sound i am aiming for, my back is pleased to let you know haha
  10. That's cool. I'm really just looking for opinions. The interesting thing for me is, those who have gone FR/FR, don't seem to be going back. That says something to me. But don't worry, i wont just "follow the crowd". I'm just looking to get some thoughts
  11. @Al Krow I currently run a LMII and a single TKS S112 (i do have 2, but have never needed the 2nd). I have the option of running through the PA, but would intend to use it as backline. It seems to me, the people who have been going for the FR/FR route all find their sound to be better? That's why i'm asking though
  12. Looking at some FRFR speakers, i'm thinking of staying with RCF, just because of how impressed ive been with our bands PA. How important is the voice coil going to be for a bass player? For example the 715s are around £550. But the 725s, and 735s etc are all around £870. I understand the need for these if the main use for the speakers is singing. Do i need a bigger voice coil for bass though? What say yee experts of all things FR/FR?
  13. Hi Graham. I didnt have a chance last night, i got in from work at 10.30. I'll do it today though. I have a free night
  14. This isnt a "hell audition" but we did laugh. A lot. We were a fresh from school band. All of us between 18 - 20. Quite well known on the "local scene". Our set list was fairly heavy rock. Metallica, Free, RATM, Led Zep, Black Sabbath etc. One of our guitarists was going to university so we were auditioning guitarists. We had 3 or 4 people coming to a practice to audition. We sent them all emails with 3 songs to learn, and aid if they had BVs or vocals it would be a massive bonus. The songs were "Wishing well ", "Black dog" and "Enter Sandman". So first guy turns up. Long hair, pointy dimebag guitar, Tight jeans, big boots, a amp and cab that was far too big. You get the picture. Nice enough though, had a chat as he was setting up, got on fine. Looking good. He tells us he can sing a bit, and would be happy to have a go with "Wishing Well". Fair play to the man. So he starts.... "You hear me , so clearly....." He starts singing Wet Wet Wet's version of Wishing Well. Brilliant. We were all crying laughing. The guy clearly felt a little embarrassed, but we couldn't stop. Too funny! DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!!
  15. Nothing other than saying "fairly light" Will weigh it later for you too
  16. Will measure it for you later. Feels slimmer than most Precisions i've played
  17. I guess itd be about £40? I dont know Al. Send me a PM and i can get you a proper quote?
  18. Seems that it will go plenty loud enough if needed?!!?
  19. The PA is Vocals, Guitar and Keys. That's good to know. Which model have you gone for. I know you've probably posted about it, but i don't know how far back that is, and i'm a lazy derrière
  20. Ok, so what if i wanted to go FRFR with no PA support? What kind of spec would i need? At the minute, we play weddings of 200-300 in halls. We aren't very loud. I use a Markbass LM2 into a TKS S112 and volume has never been an issue. I know most people on here are using them as monitors, can they be used as the monitor and the main rig?

    Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass V, manufactured in Corona California in 1999, and carefully used and maintained by one owner previous to me. I purchased it with the idea that a 5 string bass would replace the need for me to have a second bass on stage tuned to D. Well, it doesn't. I haven't got time to practice enough to get proficient on a 5. So it's getting moved on. It really is a fantastic instrument. A beautiful 'White Blonde' translucent colour that has retained its high gloss lacquer finish, with few signs of wear and tear other than some small marks on the headstock edge and a tiny dink on the lower left body edge (see detailed photo). Youll also see "players wear" on the back of the body where the paint has worn a little thinner. Hard colour to photo. It sometimes appears a shell pink. Active electronics (9v) with a wide tonal range, rosewood fingerboard with switchable red SIMS led dot markers (9v), activated by pressing the middle frequency tone knob. (fitted when new at a cost of £500). Really slim neck. Original Fender factory labels and truss rod adjustment tool included, plus the original tortoiseshell pickguard as an alternative to the white one shown. This is a genuinely outstanding example of a classic bass guitar in great condition. I am happy to look at trades. Only 4 strings though. And I don't like sunburst. Sorry about that. Any questions, give me a shout.
