Good news, I now have a job (only Tescos, boring, although on a side note I'm hopefully shadowing a friend who's sound engineer at local venue with some interesting bands coming up) but yeah, will soon have enough money to buy some rather decent monitors. 4x7 hour shifts a week at £6, roughly £925 a month. Lovely.

Now, maths is not my thing to be honest, but 4x7x6 = £672 - ~10% tax, NI, student loan?? Maybe come out with £600 a month if you're lucky.

 

Edit: congrats though!! I worked for tesco summers during my degree. Was in the chilled warehouse, so pay was somewhat better than £6/hr. They do look after you quite well though.

Nah I just forgot about tax and all!

 

Turns out my salary is a fair bit higher than I thought though as well

 

£7.74 an hour, 7.5 hours a day (9 hour shift with unpaid 1.5 hour break), 4 times a week (need to cut down, no free time with uni and I want to do studio stuff which I don't have time for at the moment) with payday every 4 weeks. With 20% tax (just googled emergency tax, I'm not quite sure on it all at the moment) comes to round about a £740 payslip every 4 weeks. Lovely. No more white cider for Dom.

Talk to the inland revenue and they'll get you are proper tax code sent out. Emergency tax is usually a temp thing where you get charged a high rate until they know your correct tax code, then you get rebated what you're owed.

 

Ic

 

either way, I have a considerable amount more than last year. Guitar gear galore, and maybe some monitors at last

what keeps your country running then? do you guys have like 50% VAT or what?

I think its that things are far more privatized in the UK. I no in comparison to a lot of European countries UK and Ireland lean far more on the capitalist side than the socialist side.

 

But I'm only guessing.

Post communist/"red star" countries in europe were super fast in implementing capitalism after 89/90. Though they couldn't really implement the benefits of it lel. Shit got privatized super fast at super low prices. Nowadays everything is privatized here except police, military, education and healthcare. ("coincidentally" all four suck, though education sometimes like to flex it's muscles by going super hard on the theory while having no money for real world stuff). Income tax + mandatory healthcare/social security etc. means around a 50% tax of the wages at every income levels while the VAT is 27%. (for example the hourly wage at tesco for student tier jobs (moving shit around, cleaning, working as a sales clerk etc.) is around 1.5GBP after taxes)

 

It is no wonder every poor fucker in the nearby countries rather wash dishes in england with msc degrees than work at home. Which fucks up both England and the immigrants' home countries imo. What is interesting that i've seen an article in the Telegraph which stated that basically the same shit is happening there too.

I'd double knobs as push/pull switches. That'll cut down some. But what have you actually got in mind? In my opinion all the gizmos get all quick, and having the best sounding instrument you can is what counts.

 

Volume/tone/pickup selection then maybe a coil tap or some kind of phase switching. What more do you need?

It's going to have two on-off-on pickup switches, for in phase, out ofphase combos, gk output (volume and switch 1&2), hex fuzz volume, cutoff & resonance, lfo for cutoff with speed and depth. Tone and master volume. And a kill switch.

Why not put a few on the backplate? I mean, there is bound to be some knobs you'll just find a sweet spot for and won't need to adjust regularly.

 

It will be full of trimpots inside :)

I can't see anywhere to economise on any of the external knobs I've specified though.
