  5. Hi all I amlooking to get some bags to house my Mackie SRM450's in, been looking on the net and being quoted all weird and wonderful prices, so can anyone recommend sensibley priced bags and where i can get them from. Many thanks Chris
  6. I have had 2 Christmas parties cancel due to going bump! and 2 bookings in November - i have been undercut - i quoted £150 and they have cancelled me so looks like i will be stopping in! But it's the old thing if someone else wishes to work for less - then let them! Chris
  7. Hi all Picked up my Mackie SRM450's a couple of hours ago, got home and opened them up and the power leads supplied are the European 2 pin plug ones! Rang the shop up who said to either cut that off and wire a plug on or use another power lead - i am ok with using another power lead but unsure as to what fuse to have in it - can anyone off advice please? Many thanks and regards Chris
  8. Well basically i got the price of £699 off ebay and asked Digital Village do a PriceBeat (it states they will on their Website), so i tried my luck and eh presto they beat it by £14.00 - which basically has paid towards the new leads. I tried Sound Control in Birmingham who Price Match and they never even answered my query so i will not be taking my business there in the future. Chris
  9. Many thanks for the replys. Digital Village have done me a good deal on a pair of SRM450's - £685 and £6.00 for high coaxial leads with neutrik connectors. I collect them on Saturday and will be using them Saturday night so i feel like a kid in a sweetshop at the moment, just got to get use to not having to set amps up! I will be looking to get an active sub next so any advice would be gratly welcomed Thanks Chris
  10. Strange one for me this December - only got 3 corporates booked upto now. Funny isn't it, i can remember upto a couple of years ago you would do a booking in December and they would automaticaly book you for the next year. I know of 3 regular Christmas bookings that i used to do - they are all going the Robin Hood for some good old live music. Many of the hotels around here are pricing themselves out of bookings too - that is my opinion. THanks Chris
  11. Hi Guys/Girls I am finally going active and have been trawling the net for Mackie SRM450's and came across these speakers - Tapco Thump Actives. Does anyone on here have any information on them - or own a pair who can give their comments? Many thanks Chris
  12. Many thanks to al, had a play around with the EQ, so used to using my Beyer Mic and was not expecting to have to mess around with the EQ that much - sounds fine now. Thanks Chris
  13. I brought a second hand in brilliant condition Audio-Technica UHF- Professional True Diversity Wireless system (series 1400 vocal) this week - went to use it last night and it sounded tinny - i can see on the back there is a squelch screw i think!!!!!! will this get rid of the tinny noise if i move it around or is it a normal thing with these mics? Help would be very much appreciated. Thanks Chris
  14. Hi all A little advice please, i purchased a brand new Kam Kobrascan from Ebay last week - it was from a DJ Store on there. I received the light Friday, went to use it Saturday and only 1 of the 2 heads was working, i paid by Paypal and emailed the company yesterday and have not received a reply from them. So i just wanted a little advice please on how to go around this situation. Many thanks Chris
  15. Hi Guys/Girls I have not been on for some months, but i am a bit of a closet Northern Soul, it still appears to be a guaranteed floor filler here in the Midlands, the one club i do hold a Northern Soul Night every couple of months and it is always a sell out, also we ave just lost one of our DJ's off Smooth Radio (Mike Hollis) listening to his show which i stated on here months ago was always a good educational tool for people, he defined the differnce between Northern Soul and Motown etc. Also i think that is why a couple of years back now that Kentuck Fried Chicken (KFC) were using
  16. Still no joy unfortunately, the Electrical Engineers at work are working on them now, they even contacted JBL direct who were not helpful- even promised to contact us when they knew but did not hold my breath. Contacted Harmann last Tuesday and they emailed back this aftenoon recommending another company so i am in the dark still but i am leaving it uto our Medical Engineers at work who repair all the Hospital equipment, mind they are all qualified sound techs too. Thanks to all who have offered help. Chris
  17. Thanks for that Jim DO you know if they just slot on or soldered in anyway? Cheers Chris
  18. Good afternoon Can i ask for some help please, using my JBL EON 1500's last night, as i was settin up my gig for tonight. THe people i am working with tonight asked if they could go through my mixer with their Radio Mics. IN i plugged it etc, they switched them on and the loudest whistle i have ever heard and you guessed it, it has taken the horn out of action. Tried some on the job repairs, tokk out about 14 screws and it reveals the inside and their are 2 what i can describe as glass fuses but they could be bulbs and the 1 as definatly blown. Been onto JBl's site this morning and
  19. They repplaced them with the Impulse series - but the Impulse are not a match for them, filled with little Japanese components i am led to believe. THey now have the new speakers that are loaded with the 15inch Scorpion Driver and they are imported direct from the USA and they are absolutely awesome - check out the Peavey website or pop along to you're nearest Peavey dealer - trust me the Scorpions sound beautiful. Thanks Chris

    Celine Dion

    I have heard it a couple of times this week, have you heard Celine Dion covering probably one of the best Rock love Songs! - Heart did it originally and now Celine Dion has tried it and i am sorry but she has killed it. Have you guys heard it yet? Chris
  22. Hi Guys/Girls I am now getting fed up of putting my Impossibleds back into their boxes at the end of the night, been onto the guys i brought them from and they have said that there are no flight cases for them at present as they are a new light. What do you use, apparently someone suggested that Staples do a plastic box with a lid but being plastic puts me off - any recommendations would be most welcome. Thanks Chris
  23. TOPIC MOVED Partly DJ related, i am selling my beloved car regisatration plate, it is ideal for Liverpool FC fans, it reads 'K77 KOP' on Retention, i have paid the £110 pound to get the certificate. I am selling has it is going to part fund my new Mackie Speaker fund, mind going to look at the Peavey tomorrow with the 15inch Scorpion drivers in (unpowered) the guy in the shop says they are awesome plus the usual Peavey 5 year guarantee. Anyway typical me going off the subject, if interested please let me know Cheers Chris
  24. Took the good lady out last night (last Saturday off until end of July now) - she ain't very happy!!! Went to one of these Pub/Restaurants, we went with friends, took the kids as they have the scaffolding there with the balls and a couple of slides. Went into the restaurant part at 9pm, only to be told sorry now children allowed after 9.30 pm! I know pubs this is the case but since when as this been the case with Restaurants, i would not mind but the smoking has lost customers and now you cannot take the kids out with you for a meal - what will it be next, you'r ekids cannot eat their
