I play piano, guitar, bass, lute and Irish whistle (no kidding). I sing too. Jack-of-all-trades, Master of none.

You can go blind doing that. Wink

I've been playing guitar for over twenty years. I don't get to play as much with work and all, but I still bang it around every once in a while. Here is a little pic of my setup in the computer room. I have a Fender American Tele and Hot Rod Deluxe. I also have a Martin D-15 upstairs.



Notice the weights. I should be as big as Arnold Schwarzenegger in another few weeks. Laughing

Just kidding. I'm trying to get in shape after a recent fall.

I have absolutely zero musical talent. My sister, on the other hand, is graduating with a BA in Music. She has no visual artistic sills though.

It sounds like you are both creative then. What does she play?

She just did her senior recital with her flute, as that's her main instrument, but she also regularly plays flute & piccolo in the orchestra, and keeps her piano skills sharp when she can.

How do you like the BA-210? I just ordered one for my brother who plays a Fender Jazz bass. He has been borrowing another guy's 100W Peavey and practicing at home with a Peavey keyboard amp.

I'm in the same boat. I tried taking guitar lessons when I was a teenager, but it didn't work out. I have so much respect for people that can play. It's a real talent.

I play guitar and drums, I've a Strat and a (reissue) Danelectro U-56,(wish I still had my old Silvertone Danny which came from Neptune,) a VS15 Marshall, plus the smallest Marshall stack made (battery op'd,) and a Roland Boss.

Nice! The Hot Rod Deluxe is a sweet sounding amp. Nothing beats the warmth of a tube.

I haven't had mine for that long, but I really like it. I'm sure your brother will too. I tested out a ton of combos over a six-month period and the BA-210 won out. I stepped up from a Fender Rumble 100. By the way, I actually have the SP model with effects. You pay a slight premium over Fender and Behringer, but it's worth it. The sound, tone and cabinet are excellent. The built-in tuner and casters are nice additions too. It's fairly heavy to move around. I don't think the BA-210 has enough punch for a big venue, but it's plenty fine for and medium size auditorium, coffee house or church.

Is it the Marshall MS-2 mini? I've always wanted to start a collection of those mini amps from Marshall and Fender. I actually switched over from the guitar about two years ago.

Actually, it's the MS-4, the full stack. The MS-2 is the half stack, so I guess that would be the smallest. The MS-4 is cool and loud for a little battery op'd thingee. At about 1 % of the wattage of a full size 100 watt Marshall head, it's a great thing to have on the desk.

I suppose it depends on the kind of music you like. The 'metallic' sound of electronic amps can be appealing to some people out there. I like tubes though.

I got an old 1950 Gretsch that gets butchered from time to time when I try to play jazz. My guitar gently weeps, but probably not for the good reasons ... I got a Stratocaster too. A recent one.
Tin whistle I have a Waltons key D. As I'm not a native speaker, I did not get the reference of Tony ... and I thought this was a family forum Wink
Lute I play on a classic guitar keyed differently, I lose the bass strings so it's not technically a true lute.

I play guitar. I have a Fender Deluxe Player's Strat (honey blonde), Epiphone Casino (vintage sunburst), Ovation Celebrity (black) and Fender Hot Rod DeVille 410. I also have a bunch of Boss pedals and stuff.
