At least it wasn't a White Rhino.... NZ postal services constantly have me shaking my head.





Just addressing the Rhino in the room ;)

haha yes I am. My Springsteen and Pink Floyd projects are basically on pause this year, due to various reasons including people who are not available, not wanting to play too much and bore the public, etc, etc.

So I have started a U2 tribute show, which is in the early stages but coming along nicely. Built a sweet direct pedalboard and have learned a full set - just need a black beanie and I'll be away

Time to see if they're as good as the hype.
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

Cool. I was playing bass in one up here. But that was across Covid cancellations etc. lots of practice and few gigs. I did sound for them up here on st paddy’s day - big night for Irish band!

Interesting little amp. More of a chucked in the car and brought over, rather than in the mail.

Used to belong to a friend's grandfather who passed away recently. Quite cool sounds in it:

Will be for sale, selling on behalf for that friend, if anyone is keen. $200. Good little practice amp indeed. It's been used with a keyboard.

Acquired a Fender Tone Master Super Reverb as part of a convoluted deal last night. Certainly looks the part. Jensen 4x10 and jolly light. Anybody tried one? Thoughts?

What’s it like Molly, any good without the valves?

I have an Analogman Prince of Tone on the way, hoping it’ll pair well with the LP

That's a huge amount of amp for the front room! I know the Tonemaster DR. Soundwise, there's no downside. If/when they break, there's no fixing them.

My Strobostomp is finally here. It's the mini, not the HD. What a beautifully presented item. They must get their packaging from the same folks who supply Apple.

Enable the sweetened tunings and never look back!
