but don't sweat the small stuff

SUNDAY 27 MAY 12NOON - 3.30 PM
PM me with expression of interest and I'll flick ya my details.

There will be 3 rigs to play through but bring your Bass and your Groove.

So are we going to pack all our gear into your room and then stand outside?

If so, keen.

Sounds good for me. Of course, Murphy's law will dictate that is the day my youth group starts bible study lunches :P

I'll send the drums elsewhere and re prioritize the rest of the room.
I suspect only Tony will bring a rig, I'll have 2 set up here

time and date confirmed. PM your attendance please so I can cater appropriately (via my Wife) as well as supply directions :)
I'd put the details up but there's enough people after me as it is without giving them a map eh.

Folks,

I can bring my rather condensed rig for your trial/comparison. Basically an Ashdown MAG300 combo using 2 x 10 speakers.

I'm in...could bring a combination of rigs depending on whether there is a request for something specific from another member. Will bring the lightweight amp (Genz Shuttle) plus one of the following:

2) Vintage valve rig (plus my laptop running Guitar Rig Kontrol)
3) Monster valve stack (plus my laptop running Guitar Rig Kontrol)
4) Rack based stereo rig (preamp+effects unit/valve parametric eq/power amp)

Will bring the Spector (because its awesome), Steinberger 5 (for Ruben), Pre EB Stingray (for SJJ) and the Pentabuzz. The Celinder J and Shuker headless need work to be finished on them. So not in a state to play at the moment unfortunately.
Stuff: Shuker Headless MIDI 6, Spector NS5CRFM, Self-built 5 string semi hollow headless, Status Series 1 5 string, Pedulla Pentabuzz, Alembic Series 1 graphite, '78 Musicman Stingray, Genz Benz Shuttles, Trace Hexavalve and fEARless F112 cabs

good one Steve.
I want a go on the Spector V as well please, is it 35" scale?

rigs, confirmed is
1x Jansen BassMan 50 w/Ashdown ABM Cab

1x Orange w Genz Cab

1x Ashdown ABM w/ Ashdown Cabs

so the shuttle GB sounds like a good thing to try. If people can vocalize what they are likely to bring it may help with planning/space, do we need any more amps/speakers? ie: I think we have Ashdown and GB covered now :D

Nev are you considering a trip north? John a trip south?

Yes it is :) The other one I have is 34" and the neck is a bit chunkier. If noone's interested in the other stuff I'll bring just the Shuttle. Recently acquired an Eventide Pitchfactor so will bring that with the Akai Deep Impact and Unibass pedals.

I think Tony is pretty keen on the Akai pedal. Pretty sure they go for near insane coin overseas.
