I've used my Foundation 212 for my last two band practices and I'm really pleased with the results.

New band with a very 'solid' rock drummer and a couple of gig loud guitars. I've the 212 with the tweeter backed off a little and the mid horn boosted a similar amount. I'm using my Aguillar SG500 twin channel 500W head with the EQ set flat through the clean channel. Bass is my Thumb NT with the bass boosted and the treble cut a little and the balance cranked to the neck pup.

It seems to work rather well as my sternum can attest :D

I'd rather have a life of 'OH WELLS' than a life of 'WHAT IFS.

Good man Peter - I think the Finnbass massive needs to start pushing some of the home grown product.

My EAD at a gig wot I dun with Vinny Burns (he's famous and everything). And his 16 year old lad, James, who is an astonishing guitarist. Also.

It sounded alright, I suppose. :)

Far be it from me to effusive in my praise for Perry but (and it pains me to say it) this cab is really bleedin' good.

I used it recently at a UKMG event, rather similar to the Moffat Bass Bash but with rather less showing and chatting and a hell of a lot more playing...

Seven different bassists played through the cab - not one of them had seen the EAD before - and every single one of them asked me questions about it afterwards and ALL of them, without exception, had only positive comments to make.

The sound engineer on the night, from pro PA company Ad-Lib Audio, was raving about it from the initial soundcheck to the post-gig chats.

Well done, Dave. It's a stunning cab.

I've wondered about the ukmg things - ukmg itself seems so guitar-centric that I've not been terribly enthused about coming along to one, but this makes me think I should revise that view. Was that event actually on the newsgroup or was it organised elsewhere?

Yes. I've known Ian for years. We tried to get a band up and running in about 2007 with his brother Phil but it didn't work out for a variety of reasons.

Mainly organised through Facebook these days, I haven't actually logged onto the newsgroup for about 8 years.

The friendships forged back when newsgroups were cutting edge communication tools, however, have remained and we've done 11 annual bashes now (actually and officially known as the UKMGPU - the PU stands for Piss Up).

Next year's is in Ashby de la Zouche and hosted by Vinny Burns (ex-Dare, Ultravox, Asia, and Ten guitarist).
