  1. Well it was Tuesday actually.

    I had been fancying a P bass for a while now so popped into Gear4music to check out a Player series P.

    However they didn't have any on display so I checked on their fancy screen thingy & spotted the Vintera range,mmmm had to check it out.

    To me it looks beautiful,seems to be very well made,plays & sounds excellent too.(it was also substantially cheaper than the classic 50's P bass they have in stock)

    Over all I am very happy with it,although I've yet to play it with the band but I'm sure it will be mint 🤣🤣

  2. Lol thanks for the replies chaps,much appreciated & made me laugh.

    Actually ended been a cracking night.

    My method was to ask in a rather harsh manner " where the f#$k am I supposed to go then,the [email protected] car park" (yes I can be quite blunt)

    Suddenly in a flurry of movement several items where moved & hey presto I had some space 😁

    They are great guys though

  3. I recorded this using my Alpha Omega Ultra staight into the desk.

    Full Omega with drive on full & blend at 11 o'clock.

    I set the graphic eq with a mid hump.

    It sounds huge,I really like it & the engineer absolutely loved it too,in fact he didn't alter anything just added some compression.

    Nice! I enjoyed that. Out of interest, how many cameras did you use?

    It was recorded by the studio engineer with one gimbal  mounted SLR.

    We had to play through it a few times lol

    We recorded the audio a few weeks beforehand 😁

    Thanks anyway. What style do you play? I need distortion for a metal band, guitar/bass/drums/sinth...

    I'm in a Black Sabbath covers band so i use heavy distortion on certain tunes & the AOU replaced two other pedals.

    If you check out my other posts on here we recorded a Sabbath tune a few weeks back,my bass tone on that is total killer.

    Mr Mac nails it ^^^

    Frankly, just stick a wig and some shades on the front man and and you'll be sorted for those 'purist' gigs. He's got the right shaped head, he seems like the sort of chap who wouldn't mind going a bit over the top and he could always sing a few notes a bit flat.

    In a world full of sh*te it behoves one to applaud the good stuff.

    Wow thank you Mr Delvar 🤘

    I'm feeling very humble 😁

    Just had a listen to the rest.  Very good indeed.  Bass isn't quite so penetrating in the others - did you change much for those?  I like the singer's approach - he sounds like the bastard child of Ozzy and Blackie Lawless :)   I've only seen one Sabbath tribute - Snowblind - but you totally smash them out of the park.  I'd love to come long and see you but for the 4 hr each way journey.

    And then I carried on - double bass in a country band!  Love it.

    here's a mobile phone video from last nights gig :)

    Haha thanks Paul.

    The other Jack Sabbath recordings are from when I first joined the band after quitting the country band.

    They were just rough recordings all done in just a few hours,I didn't really have a suitable rig then either. We are planning on recording some more tracks soon so they will replace the old ones on our website.

    Hopefully we may get a gig nearer you in the future too,our gig last night was immense.

    Thank you  🤘

    That's great - there seems to be plenty of Magnum fans out there (more than I imagined anyway). We be out gigging with a full set from June, with the first support gig on 30 March in Rotherham. I think that we will (hopefully) get around a bit, but mainly playing in the north of England and the midlands. 

    If you want to keep track of us, the band is called 'A Storyteller's Night' and the website can be found at on https://www.storytellers-night.co.uk/ and of course you can find us on Facebook as well. There are a few clips from the (very) early rehearsals on the Facebook page.  

    Excellent hopefully I'll get to see you later in the year or who knows we may even meet at a festival or some such as I play in a black Sabbath covers band ( www.jacksabbath.co.uk )

    I’ve just joined a Magnum tribute band, which hasn’t done a gig yet but still getting a load of interest. Great players with an excellent singer and a keys player who has a bit of history with the original band (played / wrote on the singer’s first solo album), so all pretty exciting and can’t wait to start gigging. The main issue we’ve had so far seems to be to ensure that we avoid copyright issues with the merch / website, etc. We have had a few messages of support passed on from the main band (as well as advice on copyright), which is really good of them. It is a bit of a strange one for me as it was never a band that I really listened to and a bit of a bizarre thing to get a text message out of the blue asking me to join.

    I have a couple of friends who were in a Foo Fighters tribute that did make decent money and years ago I was asked to join a U2 band that did really well, but I doubt that Magnum is a tribute that will make big money – it is probably a bit too much of a niche band for that – but still seems to have enough fans out there to be viable. Hopefully it will help to raise my profile again as well as get to play decent size gigs, so who knows where it might lead to? So far, it’s all good…

    I absolutely love Magnum

    Would love to see you guys sometime
