- YOU CAN HELP STEVE !!!! - PLEASE READ BELOW...

- PLEASE ALSO LOOK ON EBAY for ANYTHING IN THE COLCHESTER AREA ESPECIALLY ANY OF THE SMALLER ITEMS LIKE THE WAH PEDAL, THE VOODOO LABS PEDAL POWER ISO5 and THE NOW DISCONTINUED - ALESIS MULTIMIX 6 FX - THIS MIXER IS FAIRLY UNCOMMON, SO IF YOU SEE ANYONE TRYING TO SELL ONE TO YOU, OR USING IT SOMEWHERE, and YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THEM WITH IT BEFORE - CALL US IMMEDIATELY on 07849 278188. The usual trick is to hoard stolen gear until it is forgotten about, then sold on in different areas. DONT BE FOOLED. Many of you are constantly checking the shops, and eBay. Many musicians fall foul of this mindless act.. Let's STOP IT NOW.
