Morris dancers wearing bells dates back to olden times, when they were forced to don them by an Act of Parliament - for much the same reasons as plague houses had markings daubed on their doors.

He's largely wanting it for music practice and composition purposes. He's not really got into studio stuff yet (which is a relief because that could get REALLY expensive) and is wanting it to help with his GCSE composition exercise in which he has to produce some music for 2 instruments - most likely 2 guitars. That, and for a bit of fun!
In that case, the Vox looks pretty good if he's willing to use the analog line out rather than a USB connection to record.

Looking to get a flanger pedal for bass & wondering if anyone can help with recommendations?
Possibly looking at other effects for later on as up to now i've never used anything.
Sound i'm thinking of is similar to the start of Waiying For An Alibi by Thin Lizzy

If we had any bassists round here they could probably help.

I'm sure Paul might chime in on this but for what it's woth, I worked with a bass player a while back who used an MXR flanger and it sounded great. There was a real growl to the pedal which appealed to me. This is the cheaper micro version which probably works just as well.

Chiming in! Except as I don't use and have rarely used pedals for affecting my bass on stage, I have no idea what is best, though the one Simon suggests looks as good  as any. I've used effects in the past, but they have been multi effect units, not single pedals.
Not very helpful, sorry.

Sonic Reality are putting out a Nick Mason drum plug-in. They recorded Nick on his kit with all the old gear they would've used at Abbey Road on Dark Side, so it would sound all vintage, like. Oh, and Alan Parsons engineered it. Me wantee very much.

Sonic Reality are the same chaps who did the Neil Peart drums last year, which is one I also want. Couple these two sets with something like Addictive Drums and I reckon you wouldn't feel the need to pay out to record live drums anytime soon.

You haven't needed live drums for ages, surely? It strikes me that what you need is a decent set of samples (plenty of them around) and a drummer who can either (a) do the electronic drums/MIDI thing or (b) program into a sequencer and you're in business.

It's hard for a prole like me to tell the difference these days, to be honest.  I can remember reading the credits on Guy's Number Ten album, where he and Andy T. are listed on "drums" - my first thought was "so those two clever buggers are decent drummers too, then".
