  1. Hi I’m selling my Stagg Eub its served its purpose I rarely get called for its use as I’m pretty much all Acoustic Upright these days. I’d say it would be great for anyone switching to the Upright for the 1st time or its fantastic for a rehearsal where Upright is needed and you have limited space in the “ motor “ There are full details on staggs website and loads a clips on you tube but I tend to read the Amazon reviews when considering buying a new product it plays fine has interesting tonal variations and the useful headphone out and mp3 in for silent practice,it comes with case a bit tatty and stand ( adapted snare stand) There is noticeable damage to the body and head but doesn’t effect the sound so please check pics. ok that’s it pick preferably or can deliver for petrol within 50 miles Paul

    TC Electronic BG250 208 for double bass?

    Hi Ive been using the 2 x8 with the 250 head for over year.Not sure if its my ignorance but the so called DYNAMIC TONE CONTOURING FILTER SECTION really doesn't work for me be.(eg by reducing the bass frequency in the -db direction your overall volume drops dramatically I want to loose the frequency not the volume level !!) and with no standard 1/4 trs fx send or return there is no alternative input (for say a mic ) The inbuilt tuner is great although doesn't fully track the signal from the upright p/u If I were to buy 1 of these again( not sure I would) I'd make sure I had 1) an additional quality PRE AMP TO boost the piezo p/u level and a high quality p/u ....... 2) or top quality mic and pre amp These 2 items alone would cost you the price of a dedicated 2nd hand acoustic combo !! Finally if you get a high quality p/u and adequate pre amp I'm sure this combo would be fine for most small gigs but I'll be looking for a dedicated amp that can cope with the input of an acoustic instrument ..I've not mentioned any brand names but they'll be easy enough to research on the web... Hope this helps ?
  11. The ineffable case of the screeching upright ? One for Shelock Homes no doubt !! 

    Its been the most audacious set up in the history of set ups, more leads than Trumps connections to the Russians ! more eq'ing than err....Woodstock ! and more screeching than.......well anyone on Britains got talentless.And that my friends is the common tale of Perfoming with an acoustic instrument night after night.

    You maybe interested to learn that pointing the mike in the right direction helps....or not

      I'd have sweated myself into a kind of slow panic.  Funny how the mind tries to visualise all sorts of complicated scenarios to account for set backs.

      One of those D'oh! moments I suppose?

      "ineffable" - does that mean you can't swear about it? 😉😉
