Jaydee Twin Neck at the Cryer gig. . . . .

Hi to all my visitors. :)

This is my last entry for 2011 and 2012 may see me complete
the collection - there are lots more to come!!!

Bit of a delay since my last post - what with all that is going on
and Christmas, I have been a bit busy.

Cryer at The Asylum.

What a great night!!
The support was from a band called Quartz, who are now all in
their sixties, apart from the singer.
They Rock!! Brilliant show - would go and see them again.
Slightly odd to see Derek, one of the guitarists, looking like he was
off out to a meal but when the band struck up - powerful drums,
thumping bass, Jeff on guitar and keyboards (had something to do
with Sabbath, in his career) and clean crisp vocals, Derek launched
into some truly great shredding - Top Job!!




Quartz and Derek, doing their stuff!!



Cryer were just brilliant!!

Fez had given me a CD with some of their recordings on, which
was listened to a lot - So, when they got started, I knew all the songs!

All of it, just damn good "Brummy" Rock!
Solid, powerful, melodic - another one of those bands you see and think
how come they never stood alongside some of the more well known
Rock Bands??? You have to be in the right place at the right time!!
Simple as that!

Anyway, here are some of the pics I took, showing Fez and the Jaydee.
















A truly great night.

If I have this correct - both bands are doing some recording, so
Watch this space!!

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and look forward to
seeing you again in 2012.
If you would like to drop me a line - telling me about your experience
of some of the instruments I have listed so far, or if you have any
questions, it would be great to hear from you.

Quick Edit. Message from a regular in Finland - I missed out
the Finnish greeting, so Carl - Hi, this is for you and anyone
else in Finland.
Onnelista hyvä vuotta. :)


Cheers. :)

Ibanez Musician MC-924 DS - at work. . . . .

Lots of interest in the Jaydee - really looking
forward to the gig on Friday. :)


Ibanez Musician

I have already listed the other one I have, some time ago
but this is the one I had first and for some reason have
never got round to taking any decent shots of it.

I can't say that this is a decent shot but for the time being,
this is all I have - taken at last weekends gig - it was, erm
- a bit compact in there but we had a great night.
Looks messier than it really was!!!



This one seems to have earned it's living and has a few
small battle scars but what a bass!!!!
If you ever get the chance of having a go on one, jump
at it, I'm sure you'll love it.
Passive, it sounds great - active, even better - so much
you can do with it.
Not too heavy, nice balance, just nice to play - very much
an "alive" bass, if you know what I mean.

Controls are Master volume, Master tone, Active/Passive
balance and Treble, Mid and Bass boost and cut.
So much fun.

Will get some good shots another time and show him in his
true glory.

Cheers. :)
