I thought so. basically, the cadets is like scouts, but on steroids. we did 2.4k runs in 11:30 minutes, so we were fairly fit. the camps were awesome, and we'd go camping where scouts were, and scare the shit out of them for fun. EDIT:

I was an Army Cadet in Victoria for over 7 years.....friggin loved it to bits
ive done cub scouts, and scouts here in aus. ot my gold cord (highest achievement that a scout can get) then I left scouts because we moved, and our local group sucked, so I joined the army cadets. that shit was awesome.
yeah really. it sounded really weak when I played it. you're better off with a peavy vyper or a roland cube. and if you're going fender, don't get the frontman. fender are known for their tube warms, not their sterile solid state. that being said, they aren't the WORST tone, but it's not a fender amp id be buying, it's cheapish, hence why alot of schools buy them.
Yup. shits tough sometimes. Busking is my "part time" job. I make enough at my normal job for rent and insurance, so busking feeds me. I usually play in a duo or group, but alone is better for actual profit.
Whenever I see buskers though, I give them cash if they actually entertain me, or are clearly homeless/squatters/whatever, trying to make a legit buck or two. Ill buy them coffee a lot as well
Same. im friends with most of Melbournes good buskers, and ill throw them a few coins here and there, and same for the homeless, but the homeless have a better chance of a cup of coffee or water from me. busking alone is where it's at, better profit, and you learn alot more about your skillset.
funny enough, my main source of income at the moment is busking. I don't care if people throw small amounts of coin, it all adds up. what I really dont like is when people stand there for a song or two, really get into the music, and then walk off without throwing ANYTHING. that's what pisses me off, I mean, im out there trying to make a living, and then I get that crap, day in day out. though today I made like $25 off another busker leaving the country, it was all in 5c, 10c and 20c pieces (AUD) and also, the weather dictates what you're going to get. I have to travel by train 1 hour to get into melbourne to busk, and then on days like today (windy and gray) you won't make anything. on a good day, ill make anywhere from $70-$120, but today, I made $30. ive had worse days though.
The level of Overdrive varies greatly depending on which recording you listen to. I agree this is a little more than the recording I based it off of, but not a lot.
too true, but it's all up to the player anyway. I just think it should be a sliht crunch. also, it's not a decent sound recording anyway, so the actual overdrive may not be as strong as shown in the clip..

yeah, don't get a terror, 15w tube or so for small gigs JUST cuts it. look at the VOX AC30, no clue on prices as im australian and prices are ******ed. could try a nice fender, the blues junior is only a 15w but for me it seemed louder than the terror.. that was the perks of working in a music store, trying everything out.. if you can get one in your price range (once again, no clue on prices) look for a fender deluxe III or a fender Bassman.
