  1. Hi Everyone. My new band has some rough demos up at The Levee Strollers on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads Its a bluegrass/folk type of thing... Have a listen and let us know what you think. We are looking for shows in Aberdeen...if anyone has anything suitable get in touch! Cheers Iain
  2. you have to have the fire certificate...if not most professional venues wont let you use it.
  3. just tried Mr Li's on crown terrace...im afraid it was bloody awful! first they brought me a meat soup (when i asked for a veggie one) then they brought me some gelatinous gloop...it tasted of stale oil. yuck. the rest of it was either bland, tough meat or not as described on the menu. and it cost 20 per head with no booze. not recommended by me anyway...maybe i was just unlucky cos the other guy said it was good.
  4. Sam...its absolutely not up to the festival if the band brings an engineer or not...its the bands decision and the crew at the festival should deal with it...you should have gone anyway!
  5. is there anywhere i could buy mandolin strings in aberdeen on a sunday? cheers, Iain
  6. Good condition 2nd gen 16GB ipod touch. Bought 9 months ago but not used that much. Has a few scratches on the back but the screen is perfect...its always been kept in a silicone case. Comes with headphones and sync cable. 150.00 iain
  7. Sunburst with tortoiseshell guard. I have the shiny bridge cover too. Plays amazing and sounds great...this is from the time that the Japanese factory was producing really high quality instruments. Serial E839518 Comes with hardshell case. Ill try and post pics later on. 450.00
  8. think im going to keep hold of it. its too good to sell!
  9. im still interested in the cab if its still there email me at iainpthomson@gmail.com if it is cheers i
  10. aye nt2 is ok...id always go for a 2nd hand 421 though. it is THE mic for gtr cab, bass cab, toms, brass as mentioned. its also good for kick drum and vocals / speech too. all of this in the studio or live. i need to get myself a couple!
  11. for brass you cant go wrong with a sennheiser MD421 or an electrovoice RE-20 if you ask me!
  12. Truly awesome amp and cab for sale. Its the twin channel version. Head is 3 yrs old...not used much either. Comes with proper orange footswitch (30 new)and a plush cover that cost me 50 bucks. Cab is missing the marshall logo but in good nick apart from that. Comes with vinyl cover Offers? The head goes for 850 new and the cab 430 ish. Its in glasgow but im up in aberdeen for a gig at the lemon tree in a couple of weeks (21st) so could meet folk there. Iain
  13. sonhenry do you have a 4x12? might not be what you are looking for but i have a marshall 1960B id be up for exchanging. i need something smaller! iain
  14. look into the aer series of acoustic amps. they arent cheap but are very light and give the best sound for acoustic instruments i have heard. and the di in them is great too (and pre/post eq switchable.) you could also get a 3 way line selector pedal so you can plug them all in and just switch instrument with your foot. you then have the option of micing the amp or using the di and working out how to change the eq for the different instruments. or you could even get a good eq pedal for the violin (probably the most problematic one?) and at least you are using the amp for your main monitor so when you change the engineer just has to worry about eq for the house and not your wedge.
  15. they are good and did about 100 in sleazies in glasgow a year or so ago...if thats any help to you.
  16. no mention of mr chips in mannofield yet? thats my favorite when im in town. glasgow chips just cant compete with aberdeen ones...and dave is right stonehaven chips are even better.
  17. i was doing sound for a band the other week and the dj played their single as they came off stage. despite the fact they had played the single less than 10 mins earlier. cringe!
  18. you should go watch Galchen in the solus tent on the friday...well worth a look.
  19. i got 2 pairs for 75pounds (including one with sunglass tint) from specsavers. not the most personal service but dont think you really get that cheap elsewhere
  20. shit im away for the tuts show. gutted...never got to see them first time round
