What makes this forum work?

Hi everyone... It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here. My music partner passed away in 2012 and things were pretty tough; I've been trying to find my bearings again as a musician in the time since then. My apologies if this post isn't quite in the right spot on the forum - feel free to move it if there's a better place for it. I am part of a community of music teachers from around the world who teach a playing-based piano method called Simply Music. SM recently transitioned...Read More...
Hi Rebecca, You're more than welcome. It's been a real pleasure, and going by your last post your SM forum seems to be moving in a positive direction. By the way, I just had a look at your website. A nice rendition of "Somewhere over the rainbow." The fans of my local soccer team have a saying: "Hope is the last thing to die." We've been waiting since 1958 to win the German League again. We're still hoping! Take care, TonyRead More...

Not exactly L1 relevant, but ....

To all of those affected by the arctic weather conditions in north America, my feelings go out to you. Take care in these cold times, TonyRead More...
Hi ST, You're right, it's very mild here for the time of year, but it usually gets much colder towards the end of January. A couple of winters ago we were down to around minus 15°C which is pretty cold, and my Koi Pond had something like 8" - 10" of ice on top (I have a couple ice free devices to keep a small area free of ice). The thing is, that we're used to heavy winters here. I think that the coldest I've ever experienced was getting on for minus 30°C in January 1985. I've lived here...Read More...

Merry Christmas 2013

ST
Every year I trot out the same old metal tree and I've as yet to come up with a better decoration. !!! Mistletoe !!!Read More...
Hi Everyone, and a very Merry Christmas to you all. I've just read the Mistletoe Story ST. I've been in York Minster (coming originally from England). Didn't know about the "special Mistletoe Service in the winter", though. I did, however, use to make extensive use of the tradition in my younger years. The L1 with the Mistletoe boom could work quite well in real life, though. You should maybe give it a try during the festive season. Just a thought. You'd have to take a photo and post it,...Read More...

Thanksgiving Day 2013

ST
Happy Thanksgiving! It's hard to fathom, but this is my 10th Thanksgiving shared with everyone here. May you be in the company of those you choose, doing what you want to do on this day.

I am grateful to still be playing music. I am thankful to Cliff, Hilmar, Ken, Steve, Kyle, Chris, and all of the other people at...Read More...
...as it is for me too. Best wishes to you too ST, and best to you on your 5 day gig schedule. I am fortunate to have gotten a fill-in gig this weekend, with a duo that I've sold a Compact to no less! It's nice to spread the good word about the L1.Read More...

Need T-1 Base Screw

Michael Lyon
One of the screws has fallen out of the bottom of my T-1 (there are 6 total). Does anyone have a T-1 they are using for repairs that would be willing to sell me one of those screws? I called Bose Tech Support first but they do not have the screws since they do not actually manufacture the T-1 and the vendor does not specify the screw size. The only options they can offer me are 1. send my unit in for repair and 2. purchase a new unit and send the old one in for credit. neither of these are...Read More...
Try removing one of the other screws, and pick up one like it at your local Big Box Building Supply or hardware store. O..Read More...

Need to rent L1, 2 subs in Cancun!

Hey friends I've been asked to perform at a Sandos resort in Cancun in October and wanted to know if anyone here has ever rented an L1 system in Mexico before.

I've been spoiled using my model I with 2 subs the past 8 years and would like the same consistency and great sound while performing in Mexico. Any ideas, thoughts? Greatly appreciate any help!

Rent the L1 Model II

I live in Canada and have the L1 Model 2 with the T1 Tone match, which I absolutely love. I am in St Petersburg/Tampa Florida for holidays and have a couple of possible gigs (small as they are) Can some one tell where I could possibly rent this system? I am having a tough time trying to to find any one who does. Lots of music rental stores don't even seem to be aware of this or really care. I am new to this forum, so...if I am asking in the wrong area, can someone steer me in the right path.Read More...

Stolen T1

Hello Group I just wanted to post that last month I had my truck broken into and the thieves thought they were getting a laptop computer, but what they took was the case I kept my T1 and ipod and mics and wires in. I was lucky in the way that my whole Bose system model II was also in my truck, but they only took what they could carry. I thought I would post this note just in case someone sees a used T1 for sale as they really are only usable with the the Bose model II without the power...Read More...

I Just Finished My First Original Album in 20 Years!

Tom Munch
Hi everybody, I've been working on a new original album for the last year and a half, and it's finally done. Folks here have been interested in the past in what I do outside of the forum, so I'm letting you know. I appreciate the friends and colleagues I have here. I haven't been able to write my own music for over 20 years, so you can guess how proud I am of my shiny new baby. It's a mix of folk, country, and rock tunes, with all kinds of themes and moods. One song is about my reflection on...Read More...
Thanks, ST! I really appreciate it.Read More...
