Re: Out of tune

Hi Diana - and welcome to the Forums . . . . does the Display say "Change internal Battery!" when you switch on? Most 85s are needing a new Battery by now. We usually recommend to fit a battery holder in it's place - so you can easily replace it with a CR2032 Coin Cell. Direct replacements are avail...

Re: Old Time Stuff . . . . .

These two are just FUNNY . . . . This one "There was an old farmer he had an old sow" is English Traditional . . . . It's incredibly difficult to get the right "noises" in the right order . . . . Not sure about the Artist (I don't have the 78 by me) but could be Leslie Sarony . . . . . There was an ...

Old Time Stuff . . . . .

Just to follow on from some we've been hearing in recent posts . . . . This is a humourous song from Jack Hylton and his Band . . . . It's additionally interesting because it continues on Side 2. Standard 78s were limited to about 3 minutes . . . The Collaro Deck it's played on is the Deck my Dad ha...

Re: hello from new member

Welcome to the Forums newbieqs . . . .

Wakeman/KingArthur - showcasing GEM and Korg Triton Pro

A More compact Show this - no Choir - I think it's a performance in Cuba ~2013? I've posted it due to the prominence of the GEM and Korg Triton Pro in Rick's Rig. The Minis are there too of course . . Different Boards - so a different sound . . . . . ? N.B. It starts with a 3' Drum intro . . . somew...

Re: A Silly Noob question choosing Stage Custom Birch Kit...

Hi YamsforBreakfast . . . . Yeah, sorry there's not much going on at the moment, but it's nice to have you in here . . . . I think Saul's point is well made - I don't think I'd be able to notice the difference between 20" and 22", but then I'm not a drummer :wink: Many moons ago when I was in a band...

I suspect non-German speakers won't have much interest in the above tho'. Sure John, I'm not a German speaker, but I have sung extensively in German . . . . from Bach to Schoenberg . . . .

Re: *+#+Maddis World *+#*

THAT is a fine selection Madleine . . . You clearly have no problem holding a tune, and your intonation is good . . . so IMO - you are a natural singer . . . . "where are you little Star" you have multitracked your vocal to harmonise? You clearly know the song well - as multitracking the vocal requi...
