  1. Who are you seeing live next?

    Not Katies and Point Dexter, followed later in March by Def Leppard.... Oh yes.
  2. Handbox Audio WB-100 - new valve head (pics)

    Wot 'e sed! Also, if it's overkill for you, chuck it darn sarf.....
  3. Any Hamer love out there?

    Lovely! Next SE Bass Bash that Scarab needs to make an appearance! (Please!)
  4. Ash or Alder

    Funnily enough it’ll have a maple top with transparent coloured finish probably so your suggestion is bang on where I was headed! Builder? Maruszczyk
  5. Any Hamer love out there?

    That is very pretty
  6. Any Hamer love out there?

    I’d love a Chapperell 12 string or a 4 string Scarab, just to pretend I’m Jeff Ament and Rick Savage respectively 😎
  7. Ash or Alder

    FWIW I’m thinking given that ebony is quite a bright fingerboard it’s be good to go Alder body to soften it a bit...
  8. Ash or Alder

    So I’m getting closer to pulling the trigger on a custom jazz made by a certain well respected European manufacturer. Still undecided on core body wood so interested in people’s opinions please! The neck will likely be maple with ebony board but may be maple/maple....
  9. London bass guitar show 2018

    I’m hoping to see the new Spector Bantam shorty too.....
  10. Handbox Audio WB-100 - new valve head (pics)

    Can’t wait to try/hear this amp in the flesh (somehow!). It looks absolutely bob on what I want in an all valve head. Not that I need it, but that’s another story haha

    I agree. If I had PA backup I wouldn’t have pushed mine so hard. The fact I know I can use it without PA to me is a good thing, though I do think if that were the norm then I’d avoid it! As a backup it’s perfect for my “loud” gigging situations and for my “less loud” situations I can use it as the main head if I want to

    It’s a great little head isn’t it? I gigged one a couple of weeks back with my BF SC, no PA support, and it just got on with it. There wasn’t really any headroom left but it didn’t sound like it was struggling at all, was really very nice. It has a warmer, more musical limiter than the GK MB200 IMO.
  13. Blackstar bass amps

    That’s a shame, I quite like a bit of Mr Big and thought you were doing a subtle homage to their drummer who just passed away! But now I will go and watch the Blackstar video 😃
