  1. Upside down necks. Cool or not cool?

    . [quote name='Spike Vincent' timestamp='1479320661' post='3175655'] Not cool.They could be put on proper left handed instruments. [/quote] For a lefty, it gives the option of loads of 'righty' necks to use.. This maple strat neck is far better than the lefty r/w it came with.
  2. Squier Short Scale Jaguar *Sold*

    We have one of these for the right handers in the house.. it's a fantastic bass! Has a massive sound from the P p/u,and so easy to zip around the fretboard. A real bargain at this price!
  3. What are you listening to right now?

    I got to talking music with a chap (Joe Jeffery) who regularly walked his dog (Dexter) past our work site... Turns out he's a Blackstar Artist and Auden guitar endorser, currently playing guitar with Beau Holland. linkage: [url="https://soundcloud.com/beauholland/love-like-you-demo"]https://soundcloud.c...e-like-you-demo[/url]
  4. Feedback for Telebass

    Great deal on a metronome... fast delivery and well packed. Thanks Dennis!
  5. I'd like to take the metronome, if still available... I'll pm later today
  6. If your computer can handle it ... record and mix in 24/88.2k rather than 44.1 or 48k. A startling improvement in clarity/quality for free!
  7. First recording using a Warm Audio Tone Beast TB12

    Man, with that sort of quality at 48k - I'm confident you'll love working at 88.2 ( it's like lifting a blanket off your monitors...) Again, great song and mix... please keep 'attempting' those vocals so I can hear more of your work.
  8. First recording using a Warm Audio Tone Beast TB12

    Sounds great! I really like the track... fine work all round, particularly the vocal. That's a lovely three dimensional sound from the mic/pre combination - do you record using 88.2 or 96k by any chance?
  9. Feedback for Thunderbird

    Just got back from Pauls after buying a little practice amp... a coffee and a good chat was included! He's a sound fella that I wouldn't hesitate to deal with again.
  10. If still available - I'll take 'em for sure... Pm on it's way
  11. Definitive 'Ric' bass tracks?

    It needs the share link dropping on the page... [media]http://youtu.be/wa1c6EU2bY0[/media]

I actually prefer people to post the URLs as I can't view embeded YouTube on my Kindle Fire HDX, which is a major pain in the ar$e for me, especially on threads that are YouTube content heavy. If I'd known the Kindle didn't support flash, I probably wouldn't have bought it. [/quote] No problem, I'm still PC only (didn't consider phones,tablets etc)... you need to lose those ' http:// ' entries to get there... www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUUn_5qNguo

    [media]http://youtu.be/XUUn_5qNguo[/media] fixed... thanks for posting - good stuff
  14. Red5 Audio RV15 mic

    With many and myriad mics available at low cost - it seems hard to find audio clips to get an idea of sound quality... I have been praising my RV15 (Sylvania valve) on the forum here for a while now, so i thought I'd share a recording to hopefully back up my enthusiasm and hear the mic in use...

  15. Finally, my first gig this Saturday!

    [quote name='seashell' timestamp='1393494748' post='2380880'] Ooh yes, this is a good tip. I find that it's not so much the key to the song I need, just the note that my part starts on. Once I've played that first note I'm away. So I try to associate the first note with something about the song and keep that in my head. It was quite easy with these: 'Bohemian Like You' - starts on B for Bohemian 'Gigantic' - starts on G for 'Gigantic' Had more difficulty with Car by Gary Numan - starts on D, so I had to think of D for Daimler. Likewise Hey Joe - couldn't think of a way to remember that it starts on C. Until our guitarist suggested 'Hey Joe - you chump!' I never forget that now [/quote] Good system - Hey Joe starts with an A riff though... A,D,B - A,D,B - A,B ( sorry for the pedantry )
