Fred Basset Yearbook 2014 by Alex Graham
Fred Basset Yearbook 2014 by Alex Graham
Now don't get me wrong, I've been reading Fred since 1978 & most of the Wikipedia page is written by me, but there's now a problem. Fred Basset is long past his sell-by date.

The Michael Martin strips started off being lively but the last few books, several books, have been getting less & less enjoyable. There are still a few good strips amid the book, but most to one who has read every Fred book, is now just repeating itself over & over.

The trouble is the strip is stuck firmly in 1978 it seems with no 'shaded faces' in the book & 1930s low wooden fences & shaped gates that were still around then but long since rotted away. Think of a cartoon strip & there'll be a… Read more

Been using the delightful & cheap M20s for about 5 years & time to buy a new pair as these are getting a bit tatty.

Sadly believed the totally UNTRUE hype about these 40s being "a flat, extended frequency response for professional studio monitoring"

NO THEY ARE NOT!!! In comparing to the 20s which are a proper flat response, matching premium speakers, these 40s are totally artificial sounding!

BIG BOOMY BASS! Overloud, unsubtle & particularly vile!

DEEPLY RECESSED MIDRANGE sounding like phasing is wrong even, Midrange is dipped by a HUGE amount to boost Bass

TREBLE is deeply affected by the recessed midrange & is just feeble… Read more
