      I think we all have to take the blame for scaring newcomers off, i tend to crack on about the Stones a little, Bass is definatly a valve sniffing speaker configuration swot, glw has a thing about ancient British history, but you seem like a pretty well adjusted individual Tim. You must be hiding something. 😆

      To be honest I think we may have scared ringofwords off, or bored him senseless maybe.

      P.s. I thought we were ‘discussing’ a guitar, not a pedal…oops 😳

      Tall and blonde sounds like the Master race, was you born between 1939-1945?? now have links with Brazil? wear those little round specs wear long leather trench coats?
      Or maybe Viking descendant?

      Unfortunately I also have blue eyes etc as well, it was fine till I got my long hair cut-off but now I can accidently look a little militant without trying, or like an Austrian ski-instructor if I put on sunglasses and my waterproof.

      I did catch the end of a recent Time Team where the whole village had come out to watch and they said something along the lines of:
      “Well thats the beauty of archeology, you never know what your going to find…or not in this case” Then they handed round drawings of what they had wanted to find 😕

      Anyone see Time Team looking for this supposed grand Roman Bath-house on Sunday? In the end they only found a tiny little wall, which of course they decreed as being “Roman”.

      Idiots.

      At least they did slightly better than the previous week when all they found was someone’s outside toilet.

      Short, stocky, dark-haired, round glasses? That’d be Tim Robinson. He invaded UKTV Documentary/History/Discovery Channel. Albeit peaceably.

      Historicaly correct??? U – 571
      who remembers that film? the story was about beleivable as Bon Jovi’s acting.
      And while we are talking about ham acting, the TV comedy ‘Frasier’ , the house maid girl, the British one, what kind of accent is she doing? seems to have a bit of every region in England Ireland Scotland and Wales in her voice.
      Sean Connery with his Scottish/Coldwar Russian accent in Red October.
      Dick Van Dyke – enough said.
      Hugh Laury with that stupid Hollywood American accent.

      OK, what did the European Celts look like? They were tall and blonde.

      Now look at the Welsh. Short and dark.

      Any similarity? No.

      As for the Romans they NEVER invaded Britain as Time Robinson and Time Team are so fond of telling us. They tried invading twice and failed miserably both times because the Britons were too much for them. Finally they came over peaceably. It’s all in Julius Caesar’s writings.

      As for so-called Roman roads, villas, etc, a lot these attributed to the Romans were actually British and pre-date the Romans. The Britons were not the backward savages they are so often made out to be in our so-called history. You may as well accept Mel Gibson’s “Braveheart” as being historically accurate if you think that.

      Waaay off topic (and not exactly my specialist area I’ll cheerfully admit) but I don’t buy into this “Britons weren’t really Celts” theory. Invaders don’t have to fight pitched battles and subdue the indigineous into slavery; they can simply bowl up and take over. Most of the US was “won” by simple barbed-wire. Britons weren’t Neolithics stuck in Blighty without a paddle then independently developing pretty much the same language and culture; it just doesn’t add up. By trade, migration, shagging, pre-Roman Britain was Celticized but I didn’t mean that the blob on the atlas was some cohesive “greater Celtic nation” 🙂

      Sorry, Bass, but it’s a common mistake that the The Britons are Celts. Cor, you’ll be believing all the pro-Roman progaganda next.

      the britons were a result of the end of ice age meltdown of the north sea !
      which created an island !!!

      whoever was on it was stuck and had to invent boats to get away !!

      britons are therefore the mongrels of europe with no truly traceable id

      Ah I see where you’re going (seriously off-topic 😆 ).

      The Britons are the Celts (themselves invaders. All those hippy “druids” who claim to be the guardians of Stonehenge should learn some history. the ‘henge was built long before Celts arrived). Incidentally, the Breton dialect in Brittany is similar to Cornish and Welsh. After the Romans bannered off, the Britons (with or without Arthur) did a generally peace-poor job of keeping out the Angles and Saxons coming over from what is now Germany. They, in turn, weren’t much cop at stopping Vikings (Alfred the Great mostly bought them off) and finally got one in the eye from the Normans. The Normans weren’t really French, but “Northmen” (yes, more Scandinavians) that the King of France just had to put up with.

      Why Menatone call the pedal “King of the Britains” I don’t know. Not bothering to check the facts, I guess. Like films about how the US Navy broke the Enigma code ( 😯 👿 ). Anybody remember the TV series Time Tunnel? Doug and Tony, in one episode, helped King Arthur and his English army defeat the Vikings. Great piece of historical research, that one.

      “Britains”

      Keep quiet about your Englishness, Lee, or the King of the Britains (sic) would probably hack you up a bit. LeeStew.

      Is it Britains, or Britons??

      I see your problem. Menatone’s website is a bit rubbish. All I can suggest is that you contact the sitemaster of http://www.muzique.com/. It’s not a one-way-street; you may have to open the thing up and take some pics. Even so, you’re unlikely to get schems but you might get advice.

      What is your Q, BTW? Are you happy with the unit or are you looking to tweak?
