I had the pleasure of doing a trade with Conan (Geoff) with my Ashdown MAG 4x10 combo with his Ampeg SVT-15E. We were both very happy with the result and he was a fantastic fellow to do business with. I can fully recommend this fellow as someone to trust and do business with!

Thanks again :)

Just bought an Ampeg SVT 200T off Conan...

An absolute gent to deal with, Amp was well packaged and delivered within two days to Ireland...

He was in constant contact throughout the whole transaction, you couldn't deal with a better seller/buyer...

Thanks Again

After a ridiculous amount of cunning plans between the two of us we finally managed to get the deal done on my big cab last week. Communication was excellent throughout and I genuinely hope I get to do business with him again!

Just picked up a Trace Elliott 1528 2x15" cab. Geoff was a pleasure to deal with, responded to messages quickly, made himself available for me to pick up the cab at short notice and gave me time to demo the cab. A really nice guy, don't hesitate to do business with him!
Thank you.

Geoff is an "all round" nice guy. Sorry mate, had to get that in there ;)

Just bought a set of strings from Geoff - Very reasonable price, good communication, and they arrived quickly and well packed. Couldn't have hoped for a better transaction. Highly recommended, folks.

Had a trade with Geoff, and he is an absolute gent, and not a fan of chunky necks :)

He was kind enough to do the travelling for the trade fitting around me being housebound with a little 'un, which was much appreciated!

Cheers, Geoff!

Bought Rush tickets from Geoff and they arrived the next day at extra expense to him. Great guy to deal with and would deal again (although it turns out I'm not as big a Rush fan as I'd thought)

Thanks again :)
