    Welcome to TDPRI!
    My first guitar amp was a Peavey. Never owned a Peavey guitar or bass. But 55? Wow! Looking forward to those pics!

    At the same time,if I'd moved the double bass there'd been room for them all. Only 51 made this photo :)

    Just down the road from you Scott. I'm in Fawkirk :)

    Afraid I'm not on the lookout for a MK III, spare room has a MK III head along with Delta and Nitro heads. Keep an old H&K and a Carlsbro head in there too. Couple of 1 x 15 cabs,4x10 and a 2x10.

    Have you tried one ? By all accounts they are really great basses.

    Haven't played one myself, be a terrible thing if I had a GAS attack. Another bass in this house could see the house sink like Atlantis :D

    I haven’t, but for the price I’m thinking of just ordering one anyway on the strength of so much testimony I respect

    I need a beater

    Welcome, I was in Scotland a couple years back. Had a lot of fun hanging out eating Tea Cakes, Caramel Wafers/Logs, Potato Scones and sinking pints of Tennent's Lager.
    I bet if you fire up all those Basses at once you could just about break off from England.:)

    Aye,I've heard plenty folk,with some serious gear,singing their praises. General feeling is it's not a "for the money" thing,it's a "darn fine bass" thing.

    It's actually a Mark VIII, I don't think you need it either judging by that collection. We're only about 10 miles apart, if I crank my 600 watt head and point it south east and you point yours over here we could have a jam without even leaving our houses!

    Cool! My wife's great-grandfather, Henry Hope, was born 1854 in Scotland. He came to Canada and enlisted in the North West Mounted Police (NWMP) at Winnipeg in 1884, regimental number 1075. He purchased his discharge at Fort MacLeod, Alberta in 1889. The NWMP later became the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
