Biffy @ iTunes Fest 2010
Dolphin Music on Aug 9, 2010
Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro closed iTunes festival at the London Roundhouse on July 31st, completing a whole month of great music.
Recently confirming their new status of massive with a full-scale British tour and a 6-date US headline tour, 2010 seems like the start of Biffy only getting bigger and better.
The MoFo by Hayden is an all-valve guitar amp with a whole lot of attitude. But unlike other mini guitar amp heads, the MoFo is definitely not a one trick pony.
With four cascaded gain stages and a foot-switchable MoFo mode for even more gain, the MoFo does it all from classic clean tones through plexi-esque classic rock crunch to full metal mayhem.
Combining straightforward rotary tone controls with two pairs of additional EQ sliders for the more sonically sophisticated, Ashdown’s ABM preamp became an instant classic when it hit the bass world over a decade ago.
The ABM-210T Compact is a 350 watt 8 Ohm bass cabinet combining 2 X 10” Ashdown BlueLine drivers with an HF horn in a precision tuned plywood cabinet. As the name suggests, this is a particularly compact cabinet, ideal for use in a portable rig that’s easy to transport.
The cabinet is constructed from high-grade birch ply with properly screwed and glued joints, protected by a tough, buffalo leather cloth covering and chromed metal corners. Special Ashdown-designed metal handles are used in favour of inferior flip handles which can rattle after years of use.
The smaller of a pair of combos drawing their inspiration from the groundbreaking British pop music of the ‘60s, the Cotton Club 7/15 builds on the available amp technology of the day to make its signature sound more accessible in a variety of recording and live situations. The 7/15 has the facility to switch between Single-Ended, and Push-Pull modes, empowering their EL84-driven output stage to make a full contribution to the sound and response of the amplifier at manageable volume levels.
