A quick round up in photos and a bit of text.
All wrapped up and ready - all the rest is already in the garage awaiting i_vanman_coco
Looks higaldi-pigaldi but it is padded and secured with straps
Unfortunately Coco put his back out on the tapped horns - something that would get slowly worst before it would get better.
On the journey up we stopped at a Tesco and bought 2 cheap hifi racks.
There, were loaded them in the space between the gear and van side sliding door. Coco held them in place while I shut the door. Good job he has forearms like tree trunks
He did laugh a lot honest. Unfortunately no pic of that.
Random parking by - what else, a BMW
Wee cockup on the room front - it was either this, or ram the room wall with the van. I did take the saw along just in case actually.
All installed and a quick shake down (that's what Toccata on tapped horns does for you)
Randoms while waiting for the curry
don't light that alfie
James: Happy or evil? - I can't quite work it out
Got back from the curry and played loud until 2am
I could hear the Viole de gambe loud as anything while having a pee in my room 2 floors up! God knows what the bassy stuff was like...
It was at this point that Austrian Death machine peaked at 113dB and Jack cried enough - well what he actually said was, "that as a bit too loud".
Ended with Ginger Baker Cream re-union 11min drum solo with the master vol right round. At this point I felt a bit sorry for the 2 wammers who had gone to bed and were lodging above our room and so turned it off the master switch - Tomorrow is another day
Sunday morning walk
Packing them in on Sunday. More bodies the better the sound. Maybe we could hire some pretty cheerleader girls to line the room and dance according to the music next year
Back home and repairing ongoing - still playing very nicely though on Monday
Phew - what a weekend.
I really enjoyed it and wanna do it again in a room that the mid bass speakers actually fit into.
I'm still recovering and I know Coco is
