Re: Ashdown little giant

Maybe a reason why they're cheap eh?! I'd forgotten about the promethean - tried that out in a music shop whilst doing the rounds with the Ashdown etc as I was also pleasantly surprised - seemed like a pretty good unit.

Re: Ashdown little giant

Hey John, Tried one of these out when looking for a rig for my brother - have to say I was a bit underwhelmed. Didn't seem to have a lot of grunt to them, and I personally found the eq to be fiddly and hard to dial in a good sound - seemed quite fuzzy. Could be that the only cab the music shop had t...

Re: Met any famous bass players?

I met Phil Small from Cold Chisel at the Blues Bar in CHCH. He was touring with Ian Moss. Very nice guy, told me has was playing Lakland basses these days.

Great looking bass! That bridge pickup looks very close to the bridge - what sort of tones do you get out of it?

Re: Where to advertise for players??
