Selmer Truvoice TV12/T for sale

Thursday, 14th February 2013

I’m clearing out my loft and this rare little beauty has been up there for nearly 30 years!
It’s a 1960 Selmer Truvoice TV12/T, serial no. 449. It’s a piece of English rock ‘n’ roll history. The blood and custard case, the 8 watts of power (sounds loud in the front room!).

I’ve been playing it again and it’s got a great tone with the old Casino pushing it into natural distortion. Amp is probably mostly original but sadly the gorgeous tremolo isn’t working anymore.

Anyone interested in buying it? They’re very rare so must be worth £250 – £300.
Email me for more pics. I don’t want to get involved in shipping or posting so London area.
Steve Russell has a great site dedicated to Selmer. http://www.vintagehofner.co.uk/gallery/gallery3/sel1.html
THIS AMP IS NOW SOLD.

Happy New Year of the Water Snake

Thursday, 14th February 2013

Hey all, I’m back from India – more specifically Varkala in Kerala. Sooo lovely, beautiful place, warm nights, warm ocean, friendly people. Food, yes lovely. As you can see it was a great place to relax for a couple of weeks and I’m so grateful I was able to be there after a very stressful December.

From 0 to 30 and back to 0 again. I also love living in London but sometimes the damp cold is a pain. I am looking forward to playing again and it’s been great catching up with friends.

So the year of the water Snake – should be a bit calmer though since the End of the World party ie 21 dec 2012 Mayan calendar shift, back to light seems to have brought quite a few profound changes in the people around me.

Well I am trying to keep in a chilled out space, do my Qi Gong/Tai Chi, and stay connected to friends all over the world. Love and cheerfulness Dx
