  1. You can add scrumpy & western to the genre list... Adge Cutler & the Wurzels' debut album was recorded live at a pub half a mile from this sofa.
  2. Used the Swiff tuner last night, it's marvellous. Very fast and stable, appears to be accurate, and has a nice big clear display. Absolutely perfect for my needs.
  3. Very definitely! I'd be very interested to see either/both.
  4. Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition - Kay Kyser
  5. I had an Ocatvia estate before my current hatch. Turns out the only difference in boot space between the two is that the estate's rear screen/door is vertical whereas the hatch's is sloped. So there is actually very little difference in day-to-day useable boot space between the two. And the boot lip is the same. I like estates though, and would definitely consider another one (especially if Alfa Romeo come to their senses and produce a Giulia Sportwagon).
  6. My Skoda Octavia's boot will take my EBS 2x12, 4U rack case, rucksack containing pedalboard & leads, music stand, guitar stand, bag with spare shirt etc, and my bass in its gigbag, and all without having to put the back seats down.
  7. Am I right in thinking this is the one that is partially made from my stairs? very much looking forward to seeing it.

  9. Oh how I love the Performer basses. Given the cash I'd have a replica luthier-built, but with sensible string spacing (IIRC the originals are 16.5/17 at the bridge?).

  11. Who's he gone with, out of interest? Yes. I know.
  12. I'll let you know on Thursday I haven't tried it yet, tomorrow night's rehearsal is its baptism of fire. It's certainly a lovely wee thing, very solidly made. Almost feels like it's machined from a block of alloy. It appeals to the engineering-nerd in me
