  1. Quincy - Oh dear!

    "pop group" surely?
  2. Low budget Basses which are worth owning.

    Peavey Milestone. Light weight, well balanced, slender neck, sounds great.
  3. Eh?

    There is a tricky balance to be struck between catering for the needs of minorities such as the deaf, and limiting the burden that so doing imposes on the majority community. From all I've heard about this case, my opinion would be that the promoters did all they could reasonably be expected to do and the case should fail, but of course what is reported in the media may not be the full story, and the court will have access to more information than we do. On the wider issue, it is perhaps worth remembering that, in the US at least, disability campaigning has a highly unpleasant extremist fringe: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/disability-41850498 We should be on our guard against such lunacy spreading here.
  4. Complaining Neighbour

    This. Playing amplified in a terrace house is unnecessary and antisocial.
  5. Bassninja's feedback

    Wal bought my old Zoom G2Nu guitar fx unit, and was a pleasure to deal with.
  6. Feedback for Mike.Kennedy

    Mike bought my DSI Mono Evolver Desktop synth. Fast payment, good communications, all good.
  7. Just like to add that anyone who plays a fretted bass (or any other equal temperament instrument) is influenced by J.S. Bach whether they know it or not . But people these days prefer to bang on about some modern fad like the Beatles......hell in a handcart I tells ya.
  8. ...and Lidl aren't taking Fortnum and Mason's business either.
  9. ***** SOLD ***** Dave Smith Instruments Mono Evolver Desktop synth. £325 posted within UK. This is an absolute beast of a synth. As far as I can tell it's in full working order (sometimes the push-buttons need a firm press to activate, but they all work), although I spend a lot of time staring at it and wondering what the hell it is doing...which is largely why I'm selling it - it's just too much synth for me! Also it's default mode seems to be the gnarly/industrial/sci-fi type sounds whereas I am mostly interested in the more trippy, ambient type tones. These can be coaxed out of it too, if you know what you're doing, but it doesn't take much provocation for it to revert to the dark side. You do need to take some time to understand what it does - you can get it into modes where it does not respond to keyboard input, or where the sequencer is running but no audio is sounding - all these are legitimate states, but it's easy to think it's defective when you are new to it - I went through this several times in the first few weeks of ownership. Maybe not an ideal first synth, but it is stunningly powerful if you take the time to learn it. OS V2.1. Power supply (US 2-prong style, with UK adaptor) included. Manual is available on-line, as is an excellent in-depth guide written by an enthusiast, which is really worth having. I can email both if required.

  10. SOLD Zoom G2Nu Guitar Multi-FX The first encoder is ok if you move it slowly but gets a bit random if you tweak it fast. Otherwise it all works fine. Link to manual: https://www.zoom-na.com/sites/default/files/products/downloads/pdfs/G2Nu_G21Nu.pdf A couple of YouTube demos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgNexJsu1zM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce7vuAKR9nA Sold with manual but without power supply (also works on batteries). £20 posted within UK. Thanks for looking. (Feedback thread in sig.)
  11. davie504 and other awful clickbait horror

    No thanks; I believe you when you say it's the "most retarded thing on earth", and that it's "stupid garbage for the lowest common denominator". That's why it's the sort of thing I would never watch. . The question is, why do you watch it?
  12. davie504 and other awful clickbait horror

    No. So why do you watch it? Have you considered starting your own youtube channel in which you sit in your bedroom shouting at stupid retarded youtube videos? You never know, you could be onto a winner there.
  13. No real love for Jaco

    What we should really be discussing is whether or not he was influenced by the Beatles at all. I'm going to say..........no. Any other opinions?
  14. Deep Purple in concert

    We're off to see them at the O2 on Thursday. Probably wouldn't have bothered on my own account, much as I love their output from the early 70's, but Mrs. E has somehow managed to go her whole life without ever going to a big rock gig, so this is largely for her benefit.
  15. No real love for Jaco

    Seriously? Perhaps I'm getting old - I thought everyone would get the reference. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQNYUJIW4sw @2.25)
