OK then it's that time of year when we try to make our New Year's resolutions and then smash them up when we don't want to play anymore.
Mine is;
  • Going up to Church more >:)

Whats Yours?

1) To practise more often. (That shouldn't be hard.)

2) Only drink Caribbean Blue Mountain coffee. (That's gone already, Whittards are charging £15-00 per 125 grammes, around a quid a cup.)

3) Fit new mid / bass units to my speakers, the only type ever to be voted "What Hi Fi Best Loudspeaker" for three consecutive years. (Twenty-two years old and would need to spend around a £1K to get something of same quality. Wonder if Colin will loan me his new temperature controlled soldering iron?)

4) Improve sight reading and theory. (Again not hard.)

What are they then? I also could do with fitting some new bass/mid units to my elderly but rather wonderful Richard Allan BBC monitors. What drivers will you go for? I had a look at some on Wilmslow Audio's web site and nearly had an aneurysm when I saw the cost.

Being realistic about resolutions is the biggest challenge:

1. exercise

2. get up the guts to audition for Johnson State College's Afro-Cuban ensemble

3. keep my paperwork in order

Wishing a healthy, happy and prosperous 2010 to the CS :welldone

Become a better player, quicker (not hard);
More exercise, like Lori (I weigh the same now as I did 30 years ago when I played a lot of football and squash, but its now all rather sloppier).

Oh dear, this reminds me of objective setting with staff every year according to the SMART acronym:
Specific/Stretching
Measurable
Achievable
Realistic
Time limited

Against that I would fail miserably on my next year's objectives!

Bill - you're welcome to use the nice Antex iron, but for bass drivers you will need something substantial for heavier cables. I suggest the 150W Weller solder gun. And do you want the whole lot spot welded to the Zimmer?

Happy New Year to all on caf sax.

I'm afraid I cannot provide you with an answer Jon, as it might make other audiophiles jealous and I have had the floors reinforced to cope with waveguide loading and sand damping.

I am also going to commission Birdman to provide a BW Silver Plated Bronze Ear Trumpet as the deaf aid is not reproducing below 200 Hz which totally ruins the Orgelbuchlein.

post script:-On second thoughts and as you are already acquainted with og's git, a PM follows.
