  2. Thanks for posting. Just wanted to add that, despite the band name, the rhythm section comprising Pekka Pohjola and Vesa Aaltonen was actually made in Finland 😊.
  3. Sold a pedal to Stofferson. All good - a pleasure to deal with. Recommended.
  4. Lemmy on "Space Ritual", and John Wetton in King Crimson.

    Sold a set of strings to Charlie. All good. Recommended.
  6. I feel that I have fallen on my feet with my current gig. I play nyckelharpa for a highly bizarre and eccentric two-person border morris side. So there are just the three of us; I am the musician and the other two are the dancers. This means I have all the freedom of being a soloist, and pretty much get to choose the tunes I play, but am not the primary focus of attention, and enjoy all the camaraderie of being in a band with two (completely mad but) good friends. There is no heavy gear to lug (just my 'harpa and usually a tiny Roland cube amp), no turning up hours early to set up, or waiting around till late to break down. We can travel by public transport when it suits, or we can all fit in my ancient Nissan Micra (aka the Tour Bus). We get some great and interesting gigs. This year we have performed at a folk-metal gig in Camden, a major European folkdance festival in Germany (which included an arena performance in front of around 5000 people), a fetish club (lots of fun), and most recently a pagan samhain festival (All Hallows Dark Gathering in Boscastle), along with the usual morris gatherings and dance-outs. We have been interviewed twice by the press this summer (once for a local paper in Germany, and once for Dancing Times). We only do the gigs we all want to do - so it's quality rather than quantity. We've also made a shedload of (often strange) friends along the way. All in all, it has been a blast. Long may it continue!
  7. I have a set of unused DR DDT 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 strings for sale if it's of any interest.
  8. DR Drop-Down Tuning Strings - 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 - unused Bought these a few months back when I tuned my bass down to DGCF. Decided I didn't want to mess with the nut, and got used to the slightly floppier feel of the original strings, so never put them on. Box is slightly tatty, but strings are absolutely as new and unused. £20 posted within UK.
  9. It's not about the bulb, people, it's about the quality of the light you can create with it.
  10. As nobody here seems to know the answer, could I suggest you try asking on the Roland Clan forums? https://forums.rolandclan.com/viewforum.php?f=24
  11. For me it was gazing longingly at a "Top Twenty" (?) sunburst solid 6-string in Woolworths - probably 1971 or 1972. Cost around £20 if I remember right. Ended up being taken to a proper music shop and being offered a choice between two Columbus copies - an SG and a 335-alike.Got the SG. Cost my Dad £40 - and me a summer of lawn mowing. First bass came a few years later.
  12. My one and only bass is an old Peavey Milestone 3. Weighs around 3.3Kg (7.27 pounds). 4 string, passive, jazz bass type pickups, long scale. Comfy sculpted body and zero neck dive thanks to exended top horn. Plays and sounds great, and frequently to be found s/h for £50-£100 on gumtree and the like. Not for gear snobs, but otherwise hard to beat imho.
  13. That's exactly what I did when I returned to bass after a few decades. I bought a very decent 16W Kustom practice amp. I quickly realised that it fell between two stools - far more power than was useful in the house, and not nearly enough to take to a band practice. It was small by bass amp standards, but still a chunky lump that took up space, and wasn't easy to move on when I realised it wasn't required - (posting it would have cost more than it was worth). Now I no longer play bass in a band, and have sold my gigging amp, I find I have no need for a small amp, either for home noodling or recording - there are so many good preamp pedals / multi-fx etc out there that do the job and take up no space. May not suit everyone, but that's my experience, for what it's worth. Edit to add: my recommendation of the Zoom (or similar) wasn't really based on the fx - I agree they could be a distraction for a beginner - but on the ability to get a decent basic sound, with the additional ability to play along to the inbuilt drum machine, which I think is very useful for a newbie.
  14. Personally, I wouldn't bother getting a "practice" amp. I'd spend the money on a small cheap multi-fx with aux in and headphone out, like a Zoom B1 Four. This will let you play along to tracks, or to the inbuilt drum machine, and try different amp sounds and effects, without disturbing anyone else, at any time of the day or night. You can also plug the output into a sound system if you really need to hear it through speakers at living-room volumes. If you get to the point of wanting to play with others, then you can get a proper amp with enough power to be heard against drums and other amps. EDIT sorry, just realised the B1 Four doesn't have a dedicated phones out, but you can use the output as a headphone jack.
  15. ...and then he bought my Logjam Prolog stomp thingie. Again, all good 😊.
  16. "The Alex" - is that the establishment that used to be "The Alexander Cafe / Cordy's"? - if so it has certainly had a major facelift since I last visited (which, to be fair, is probably at least 25 or 30 years ago, now I come to think of it 😂).
