Re: Move to Christchurch

Hey Harley. Auckland's loss I recon. I hope move has gone well and they don't give ya too many jaffa jokes. :wink: Thanks. It's actually a much friendlier city than Auckland, but the driving is noticeably different - possibly because I still have my 'North Shore Toyota' number plate surround. :mrgr...

Re: Move to Christchurch

Hi Foal and CJJ. We're living in Avonhead and my day job's centred in Sockburn, yet I travel throughout NZ and Australia quite a bit of the time. The War Office and I were out at Sth Brighton last weekend funnily enough. Nice spot too, we enjoyed our time looking around. I was trying to find an old ...

Move to Christchurch

I recently moved to Christchurch for a two year plus work contract. We've had several shake ups to remind us of exactly where we are since we got here. We're enjoying the new surroundings and will be making some weekend excursions to explore the SI more thoroughly. Shortly I plan to see what's happe...

Re: Downsizing my rig - anyone done it?

I downsized about 12 years ago, after I got a hernia. That's what drove me to look for something light yet powerful in a cab, and hence I came across the BFM range, of which I now am a builder/supplier. Since aking BFM cabs, there have been quite a few models introduced that are even lighter and mor...

That can happen to old strings.

Re: Dingwall Combustion on its way!

I tried several fan fretted basses in the USA when I took my son there for a two month trip. They felt real nice to play and the Dingwalls sounded great. I would have bought one but I'd already blown the budget on the trip and didn't want a divorce to face when I got home with yet another bass with ...

Re: Ibanez Prestige and Premium basses

I don't have an SR Prestuge, but I do have a Japanese built Ibanez BTB1005EOL. I'll never sell that bass, the workmanship is superb and the neck is great despite the 35" scale and 19mm string spacing. I paid about $3,200.00 to bring it into the country back in about 2002 when $NZ1:00 = $US 0.51 and ...

Re: 4x10 vs 1x15 vs something else

I may have to give 12's a try I like the idea of having a single speaker for practice, whatever, then being able to pair it up. What sort of 112 do you use? I manufacture BFM ( Bill Fitzmaurice ) cabs under license here in NZ, so all my cabs are BFM. The J112 Lites are the ones I like to gig with t...
