Re: Midnight Oil 3rd Sept

I see Midnight Oil tickets have dropped in price, must be keen to fill it up. I'm pretty tempted, have always enjoyed their stuff and would like to catch them live before they retire. Hate to be a Nigel No-mates at a gig - anyone going? Gah! I already have plans for the weekend otherwise I would li...

Re: Auckland / Northland Gearfest: 14th August 2022

Oh and if anyone wanted to chuck $10 into 12-3015-0622623-00 they'd be welcome to. Didn't keep track of who gave me cash. BG can consider his brief attendance a forum donation. Done, and thanks again for organising Robbie, it was a blast. It appears you survived the journey home relatively unscathe...

Re: Auckland / Northland Gearfest: 14th August 2022

I'll have a 2x12 that might handle 50 of your 200 Watts. I've got one that can nominally handle 60W (2xG12H30), so we could run them in parallel. Might be risking it with the Super Bass though. I'll probably bring the Waza-TAE along, just in case. I hope your R7 is green and smelly. It's certainly ...

Re: Big glass, big iron & god?

DM's amp (JSN880) gets 100w rms at clip and 200w rms maximum power from a pair of KT88s. However, it is running 630v DC on the plates, has a custom designed power supply including separate screen windings on the Power Transformers (PT) and custom OPT. We had to build 3 PT's (via Marque Magnetics) un...

Re: Valuation resources

The question of value is an interesting one. As hamo said (possibly in another thread) it is about finding the right buyer at the right time in order to get maximum price for such a niche and valuable item or set of items. [UNHELPFUL CRAZY TALK TIME] If you needed to get rid of them in a hurry you c...

Re: The Police

I also saw them at Western Spring and I thought they were epic.

My ex-wife had a migrane that day so I rang my mate in Hamilton and said "I have a free ticket to see The Police, you wanna go?" Needless to say, the beersies were on him.

Re: NGD: Les Paul Classic

Great looking LP, good score! I was looking forward to trying the PAF rabbit hole when I got my LP, but the Burstbuckers in there sound too good to swap. Have SD alnico II in my Ash Aurum, and 57 classics in the 335. All sound good. I think the BBs sound the best, but recently lowered the SDs and n...
