  1. [quote name='warwickhunt' timestamp='1393181224' post='2377075'] Have you heard much of a watering hole 'The Schooner' Al? Luckily, Berb and the boys in the band will make it easy on Saturday... I hope! [/quote] Funnily enough, a mate of mine has just posted some photo's of a gig there on farcebook, and apparently the audience were "well up for it!" The 'stage' area seems a bit small, but you should get your sylph-like figure tucked in a corner without any problem.
  2. "Johnny The Dep" to the rescue, mate. You'll do it all perfectly, and don't worry - Adrenaline's brown.....
  3. [quote name='alyctes' timestamp='1391468438' post='2357613'] No idea. Who's Sheldon Cooper? [/quote] Evidently never watched 'Big Bang Theory'.
  4. Stick the scratchplate under a pile of heavy books, and return to it in 17 years! (Should actually only take a few weeks) Immerse chrome bits in Coke (pop not white powder) until they look better, rinse in clean water and buff till pretty. .....and welcome to the site.
  5. They seem to have become 'fashionable' again. I sold mine for £100 a couple of years ago, and the lad who bought it off me has just sold it on for £400.
  6. [quote name='Kev' timestamp='1391333842' post='2355776'] Well it must sound rubbish then! [/quote] I'm glad someone else thinks so, but I wasn't going to be the first to say it!
  7. 15 years old, with a 30 watt Fenton-Weill Combo to my name, and I had just been offered a job with my Dad's Dance Band. Off we went to the showroom in Newton Aycliffe, where he signed as Guarantor for a Selmer Treble/n/Bass 100 watt Amp and a Selmer Goliath 15" Cab. £90 for the Amp and £80 for the Cab. I was out that regularly, I managed to pay the bill off in three months.
  8. It looks like someone started to peel the Fablon off, then got bored half-way.
  9. [quote name='cameltoe' timestamp='1388270924' post='2320355'] Where does it say that? [/quote] In the Q & A bit.
  10. [quote name='BetaFunk' timestamp='1387977150' post='2317670'] old Tone was a bit of a knob [/quote] There's no need to write anything else...
  11. It was good enough for Andy Fraser, and apparently, he's a "real" Bassist!
  12. Well worth the money. Have you seen the Original Case and "Outstanding Patina"? Apparently there are creams for that nowadays.
  13. [quote name='Bassassin' timestamp='1386025505' post='2294897'] Well - he dropped the price to £75 so I had no choice. Bought it. And so it begins again... J. [/quote] You, young man, are incorrigible. Nice one!
  14. [quote name='Annoying Twit' timestamp='1384718043' post='2279954'] Damn, I would like a cheap fretless. But this is a bit too far for me to go. [url="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380773417623&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en"]http://cgi.ebay.co.u...atchlink:top:en[/url] (And of course, the sale price might not be cheap. But it's a HB which don't seem to actually sell for much and it's a 99p start). [/quote] Thanks for the heads up on this. I've stuck a tentative bid on it, just in case. Well, seeing as I live in the same town, it'd be silly not to, wouldn't it?
  15. [quote name='AntLockyer' timestamp='1384524654' post='2277719'] Uk voltage? I'm interested. [/quote] Take his fingers off at that price! The Wife bought me one of these as a surprise last year, knowing I needed a back-up amp, and after trying it, I've used it as my main amp ever since.
  16. It'll be a pleasure having meaningful discourse with you again, mate. You've been a real miss round these here parts. Onwards and Upwards and welcome back.
  17. [quote name='Annoying Twit' timestamp='1381556798' post='2240590'] I didn't notice those, I was blinded by the sheer pinkness of it. I wonder what the owner was using as a strap. A piece of old rope? [/quote] I saw a Bass Player last week with those on his Bass, and he was using a laptop bag strap, with the clips on the ends. I didn't bother asking him why.....
  18. [quote name='KevB' timestamp='1381505255' post='2240044'] Saw him live about 10 or 12 years ago, he managed to play about 4 songs in his 45 minute allocation [/quote] Yep - a few years ago I watched the Support Band, then lasted for 2 of his songs before I went home.
  19. [quote name='Dave_the_bass' timestamp='1380900272' post='2232186'] Can't believe no one has suggested the £30(ish) Vox Amplug "custom designed for your requirements". [/quote] Me neither. I've used it for the past few years for silent late-night practise, and the Wife hasn't woken up once! Well worth the money.
  20. [quote name='Grangur' timestamp='1380783479' post='2230385'] The only thing that would stop me is the 5 strings. Otherwise I'd buy it straight off. [/quote] DO what I did. Use the B-string as a thumb rest until you get used to the extra string!
  21. [quote name='cytania' timestamp='1380488150' post='2226151'] Isn't it stamped 'Second' on the back of the headstock?... [/quote] Yep, with an "explanation" in the description.
  22. [quote name='nottswarwick' timestamp='1377027704' post='2182483'] What is Reynauds? [/quote] Most people associate it with Vibration White Finger, where the circulation has real problems getting to where it needs to be, but it affects other parts of the body as well. My Wife and Daughter in Law both suffer from it, and need to wear thick gloves when it gets a bit colder, as well as thick socks, thick jumpers etc.It can be excruciatingly painful at times, when the blood flow either slows down appreciably or afterwards, when it starts to return. (Basic explanation, It gets a bit more complicated the more you look into it)

  24. [quote name='bagsieblue' timestamp='1376513028' post='2175395'] Any suggestions on what to do with it gratefully received? A [/quote] Hmmm. Considering I live ten minutes away from Chester-Le-Street, and you beat me to it by about a minute, I don't think you'd appreciate any suggestions I'd have to offer!
