    Sam, as a Canadian I have to ask you, are you a true Canadian? In other words, do you revere Trailer Park Boys as the most awesome tv series ever created?
     
  5. Best show ever eh!

    For you Baltimore/DC guys, awesome show tomorrow night at the Sidebar.

    Borracho, Nitroseed, Rezin and Northernmost. Going to be such an awesome show. Doors at 9.
     
  8. So, I got some inquiries with Atlas, Monolith, and Emperor to see if they could make a 15" cab around the 50lb mark. We will see what they come up with. Any other cab companies that I should be thinking about?

    Also, on the last thread, Anyone have the weight on the Jack Casady or any info on how much feedback a hollowbody bass might have? I have heard about guitars being almost unplayable and the Demonic Death Judge guy has at least got me interested in hollowbodies.

    Joe, check out Olde Crow cabs on facebook. they seem like they make high quality cabs and have been posting lately about taking orders for new business. and the cabs look like more boutique emperors.

    You could always stuff the body with foam.

    Some hollow bodies feel like toys.

    Never played a Casady sorry.

    If I'm not mistaken one of the guitarists in Laz's band has scoliosis and he uses a Marshall 1/2 stack and has never complained about moving it. But he may be suffering in silence.

    news to me but you've known them longer haha

    and sorry joe never played a hollow. the bodies always seemed so big that i wouldn't feel comfortable playing them so don't think i've ever actually picked one up.
     
  12. It's was always kind of a dull ache. It was more than likely flared up due to moving the monster cabs I have now. It was bothering me last night to the point I had to sit down during practice. Also, I am usually not one to vocalize my physical pain, but this sucks. I may have done something else to my back. Waiting for an appointment with a specialist.

    Please understand I wasn't knocking you. I was trying to suggest there might be ways to cope without giving up on heavy-ish gear.
     
  14. Don't worry man, I didn't take it that way at all. :p

    It just seems like the genre requires bigazz cabs. What's a wimp like me to do? Thanks for all the suggestions so far, guys.
     
  15. Magma delivery date changed to Dec. 5. Sucks.

    Lame! Mine did come today, and I fiddled with it a bit, but won't really get a feel for it until tomorrow at my jam spot where I can actually turn it up!

    I listened to the latest Black Tusk record yesterday. It didn't really do anything for me. There was some... swing/groove? missing.

    Anyone else have thoughts on it?

    I love Trailer Park Boys, my favorite band is Rush, and I love me a double-double in the morning. I call it Rye, not Whiskey, and my favorite beer doesn't taste like water. ;)

    Well, rye is a type of whiskey (not another name for it - you wouldn't call Jameson or Lagavulin "rye") and Canada makes Molson which is every bit as craptastic as Coors or Bud, so no points there either. ;)

    I still want a Epi Jack Casady bass and seeing that video from DDJ has sparked my GAS yet again. The vocals sound alot like Al`s vocals on Ministry`s Filth Pig.
