  1. I've got one of these and is a really lovely guitar. If I had to keep only one of my guitars this would be it. Snap up a bargain folks:-)
  2. I used to use the exact same rig with a Stingray and it sounded absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately the Ampeg head died and they were as helpful as a thorn in the ass. Sadly put me off ever using Ampeg again:-( That said, it was the best sounding amp I've ever had;-)
  3. Stingray 4 string in powder blue with maple fingerboard:-) http://www.keymusic.com/en/product/Musicman-Classic-Stingray-Powder-Blue-Maple
  4. I love these gear videos! Would be cool to do a little video feature here with people's set-ups:) In the old days, you could have set AUBmeL round to folks rehearsal space to shoo a short vid!!!
  5. Thanks dude, I'll check it out:)
  6. Not used one myself, but many folk swear by the VT-bass.
  7. Sadly there's still a lot to be learned regarding customer service. My wife went in looking for a specific item for a Christmas present and the chaps were very helpful. Took her details and said they would call once they'd looked into it. They never bothered to call back, not even to say they couldn't get it. I popped in at the weekend and wasn't even acknowledged in the store - in fact I felt quite awkward as all the staff were just talking amongst themselves behind the till. I'm the kind of person that would rather buy locally, even if it means paying a little more and waiting a little later for my stuff. I'll not be asking them to order anything for me. Sorry, but not all feedback is positive.
  8. 1. Vintage Trouble, Ironworks, Inverness. Been really into these guys for a good while and was really pleased to be on the same bill as them three times this summer, but never able to see them. Seeing your favourite band of the moment in your home town is always a special moment, and this surpassed my every expectation. 2. Belleruche, Bannermans, Edinburgh. Gig was cancelled and we found out that it was rescheduled on the way down. Small crowd, no soundcheck, technical issues but amazing performance. Probably wouldn't have been the same if it had gone without a hitch! 3. Levellers, Kendal Calling Managed to catch only half their set before playing, but it was one of those nostalgic experiences. A setting sun on a blistering day, clouds of dust from people jumping!! Just the right band at the right time in the right place! 4. Smoove and Turrell, Kendal Calling Fantastic, inspiring performance. Ended a perfect day! 5. Newton Faulkner, Belladrum I'm not at all into singer/songwriters, but he very surprisingly managed to hold my attention for the entire time he was on stage. (and if we're allowed to include one of our own gigs.... Ironworks, opening for Craig Charles. Venue was packed out. We've worked a fair bit with The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show, and being introduced in your home town by one of your heros as "one of my favourite bands" was a very special moment!)
  9. That's one sweet pedalboard:-) Don't fancy selling your Deep Impact yet;-)
  10. Simples for me - Vintage Trouble, The Bomb Shelter Sessions
  11. I'm looking for a new guitar amp, and this was one I totally overlooked. Tried a Hotrod today, albeit without my Tubescreamer, and I loved the clean sound but was not really into the drive channel. If you've still got this next time I'm through I'll come and try it out if that's ok?
  12. How does the clean sound compare with that of a Fender Hotrod Deluxe? Can the Peavey badge be easily removed?
  13. That's a cool video, and a pretty nice song too;-)
  14. Get some lessons - you'll never look back!! I took lessons for about 18 months after I left Aberdeen and although initially I felt I went backwards as my teacher pulled my technique apart, it was all for the best. I can honestly say that I'm a much better and more grounded player as a result. Definately get some lessons, but go into them with an idea of what you want to achieve.
  15. Cheers for the advice guys! I like the Moog, but a little pricey!! Decided on the EHX Enigma:-)
  16. It's the transformer I'd be interested in though as venues don't seem to like mine:-(
  17. If you sell it without the step-down transformer let me know please. Unlikely, I know, but keep it in mind.....
  18. I'm after an envelope filter for bass. Anyone have any recommendations? Thank you:)
  19. Actually, I've changed my mind! Got a new 4x10 and it is a fantastic sounding head:-)
  20. Have you considered looking for something used? Might be more tricky to find something lefty though. I've played the Sterling and it was pretty decent. The new squires seem really good too - much better than their price tag suggests.
