General / busking
« on: August 08, 2012, 07:47:39 PM »
hey people, i haven't posted here in a long time, but I'd like to ask you all something.  i have recently started busking in my local city, Glasgow, Scotland.  I've found the perfect spot to do it and I'm making a semi-decent amount of money from it.  I have two other friends, both bagpipers who also busk, and they can make £30-35 an hour (about $43-48 i think) whereas i am only making about £10 ($15 - 20 i think) an hour.  i was wanting to ask if many of you guys busk, and what kind of things do you do while doing it, as I'm trying to think of ways to maybe involve the crowd to try make more.  do you people have any ideas?
Thanks a lot, Deo

Gear / babache g3 or taibolo v2? quick help needed
« on: August 31, 2011, 08:46:47 PM »
hey guys im stuck with a problem here. i own two henrys jazz diabolos and i would like to move up to better ones.  i heard that g3s are very good, but ive heard the v2s are also good.  i want to by 2 diabolos, and ive found somewhere where i cant by 2 g3s for £25 which i would like to spend, and if i buy 2 v2s that would cost 50.  from what ive heard the v2s seem to be better, but i dont really want to spend £50, and i would much rather spend £25 on the g3s.  some advice please?

im more leaning towards the g3 for the price, but i really like the look of the v2s. 

and also how do they differ from the henrys jazz ive already got?.

thanks,

deo97.

Gear / 5" diabolos?
« on: June 24, 2011, 09:20:26 PM »
hey guys, im new to the forums, but have been reading stuff for a while.  i've got 2 henry's jazz diabolos, a really awful cheap thing which i never use, and an "eolo.com" diabolo.  i'm thinking of getting some new ones, as im getting better, and ive heard that the 5 inch diabolos are very good. can you list them please and possibly give some other suggestions?

edit: also, can you do 2 diabolos with a one way bearing diabolo?
