    Default Firebottle lands in Gloucestershire

    Kirsty and I had the pleasure of Alan (Firebottle) and his lovely wife's company for the day yesterday. I just wanted to say that it was a real pleasure having you both here and as always, great to put a face to a name. I really liked your preamp Alan, great job on that, and the match with the lovely new STA25 was really very good indeed. We had a great day of mixed music and chat, with some pretty diverse toons from Eva Cassidy, to Yello, Sting and Verdi!

    A very enjoyable day Paul, just to appease Marco I did take the camera but all the kit has been seen on AoS before anyway

    Yes the music was very varied and all the more enjoyable for being so. Seeing and hearing the Tannoys up close was a real pleasure as all of us appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into them.

    The Radford Revival STA25 was superb, highly recommended if you are in the market for a quality valve amp

    A cracking day out, pity about the mist spoiling the wider views of Gloustershire

    Pics [of the gear listened to]? Threads like these are pretty useless without them, folks!



    Glad you all had a good time, though

    As I said the kit has all been seen before, but as you insist:

    The amp and speaker(s) :



    Vinyl front end:





    Alternative preamp:



    Firebottle - for the no bottleneck approach.

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan
