Because of the Covid-19 virus, we, like many other UK bands, have been unable to meet up and play together for the last eight months or so.
So we thought it might be fun to try and produce a track recorded remotely, with each band member playing and singing their parts over a click track and sending the resulting track stems to a single location to be added to a mix.
Easy!…………. we thought!
Well, as this was our very first attempt at such a project, it probably took longer than it should have, but never the less we finally managed to get the finished product completed .
We hope you enjoy our version of

We have long been huge fans of Bose sound equipment and for the last twenty five years have enjoyed trouble free, high quality sound from the legendary “Bose 802” speakers.
When the decision was made to go “digital” the truth was, we all wondered if we were making the right choice. Our existing system produced great sound in both small and large venues alike. (We once played Coventry City football stadium with this equipment) Continue reading “Our New PA System”
Over the years we have used many different types of electronic tuners, starting out with the old “Korg” guitar tuner with the big six position selector on the front. This was only any good for an instrument with an electronic output, or an acoustic instrument fitted with a pick-up. Then came the “clip on transducer leads” with a 1/4 jack plug on the other end for use with pretty well any tuner on the market. Then more recently, a whole array of clip on tuners, most of which seem to work quite well. However, I have now acquired a “Peterson Strobo Clip” tuner. I can put my hand on my heart and say that this device is the best clip on tuner I have ever used.
As an upright Bass player, I have to say that some of the tuners I have tried do not handle the low frequency of the “E String” very well and the only way to get anything like a good reading is to tune using harmonics. Not so with the Peterson! It responds perfectly to any frequency you throw at it, with a bright display that remains clear whether on a dark stage, under spotlights, or even in bright sunlight. I have been using this tuner now for over twelve months with no problems and although they are expensive, I would buy another without hesitation.
