I see you bought the 2x Martin ladyshaves on Ebay Dave..that was a good price as well,they look in reasonable condition.....the guy seemed to have loads of random old but good gear there.

Be seeing you.

Hi Ian, Just noticed your avitar. As a matter of interest, how much ASS gear have you now got? And how much of it is in active use doing gigs?

Peace and goodwill to all speaker builders

Not too bad. Will have to see what drivers i can put in them thou. Probably have to get some more ATCs reconed.
Abit more than i was hoping for
(only paid £350 for the whole fr3 system ive got) but im happy enough. its abit hard to find them so was surprised when i found them. alex managed to get one of the BGW's so now he has a silly amount of them.
Still trying to convince him to setup everything he has. he must have atleast 40 philishaves!

Ian i think you should sell those 215mk3's you have and get more ASS stuff! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif

I saw the BGW`s Dave....i wasnt that impressed with the 750 i had,but i guess Alex just wanted to keep all his stuff matching,which i can understand.
Didnt you fancy the matching Martin radials? By the way,did you spot the pair of Mega of London /atc 10inch mid cabs the seller had? they went for 160quid,and looked very tidy too.....

Be seeing you.

he has already sold alot. seems to be listing similar items at once.
i had a go on the radials but they went to high!
the BGWs are alright. i think he has 30 gta's so it makes sense keeping them all the same. once they are warm they sound lovely.
i did see the mega wedges, but im sorted for monitors so decided against them

You have to laugh at the seller`s name...do you think he is a gentleman of ample proportions?
