The Weather Here In Adelaide
After palying classical piano for 35 years about five years ago I took up the bass guitar and surprised everyone - not the least me!
Although I now work in IT I am a trained electronics technician working for a large telecommunications company.
About five years ago I moved to a new church. This was quite small and did not really have a sound system so I set myself the task of building up a half decent system. Although I had plenty of audio experience I had no experience with sound. However I quickly came upto speed and I put together and now maintain the system that they now use.
Although I work in IT I keep my hand in by building and repairing electronic equipment.
My guitars are a Cort A5 and Fender fretless American series four string precision.
My cabs are a 4x8" quad and a 1x12". They are driven by a Hartke HA7000 and a Carvin R600.
The following pictures were taken by my son's Sony digital video camera. To see a larger image click on the pictures.

My Cort A5.
I bought this after my origonal Torch was stolen.
My Fender Freless American Precision fretless.
My 4x8 Cab with the Carvin R600.
It uses four 8" Audax drivers and two Motorola horns. The Audax drivers are used in top of the range HI-FI speakers and are extremely transparent. Each 8" is capable of 80W continous power, so the cab can handle 320W without skipping a beat. The wide range transient handling would be way above that.

This uses a dual voice coil 8 ohm driver and a Motorola horn. It is rated at 250 watts.

I get realy bored with stright three or four and always want to go on a journey. I sometimes walk, I sometimes run, but I always want to make it interesting. I hate getting stuck in a rut. I like to play every song in a completely different style to suite the mood. I will sometimes play the same song completely differently depending on the mood. I want to add more styles, rythms and riffs to my repetoire.
