    Amps, how many is too many?

    Originally a bassist, I only ever had one rig. Now, I'm on Bassman number two, a Wharfdale (Albion) TCT50 head and cab, a Fender Champion 600 (Currently in bits!!) and a Klemt M40 with Echolette NG51 delay. I think that's enough for me!

    Just heard Howard Dumble has passed...

    Jeez, that was cringeworthy. I stopped around ten seconds into his playing on that 'worst guitarist' video. Almost as bad as the Fred Durst one.

    Star Wars lost me with Jar-Jar Binks. The Ewoks were a WTF moment but JJB and his pals were a real damp squib.

    How many amps did you buy in 2021?

    One, to replace the '59 Bassman Ltd that I really should not have sold. It's an early Albion, built by Steve Grindrod, who worked for Marshall at one point. This one was part of a collaboration with the speaker manufacturer, Wharfedale. It's very Marshally. Not really my sound but I got it for...

    Stage Riders

    Currently looking at Aerosmith's one, in which they state, amongst other things, 'Please, no Pakistani compressed towels.' Whatever they are. Sounds like they had a bad experience with them.

    I may have just done something rash

    That would be a dream shipment price for me. The stuff I used to buy off Ishibashi to UK were double that.
