Main (full name and dates of birth and death unknown) was an Englishcricketer. Main's batting style is assumed to be left-handed.
Main made his first-class debut for Middlesex against the Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord's in 1830, with him making a further first-class appearance for the county against the same opposition in that year. In 1833, he made a third appearance in first-class cricket, this time for a team of left-handed players against the Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord's Cricket Ground. Main scored a total of 32 runs in this three matches, averaging 8.00, with a high score of 17.
This is a list and description of the guitars and other equipment played by musician Stevie Ray Vaughan. Vaughan played a number of Fender Stratocasters throughout his career, one of which, a 1963 body and a late 1962 rosewood (curved fingerboard) neck, became "the most famous battered Strat in rock history." He was notoriously hard on his guitars, and many of them required extensive periodic maintenance. He used a limited number of (mainly vintage) effect pedals, and favored Fender and Marshall amplification.
Vaughan was hard on his instruments and his equipment and was reported to hear even the slightest malfunction, even when, for instance, he was running 32 amplifiers into the mixing console for the recording of In Step. His guitars were serviced by Charley Wirz of Charley's Guitar Shop in Dallas, Texas, and especially Rene Martinez, who worked in Wirz's shop for a while. Martinez also built guitars for Carlos Santana. His amplifiers were tuned and serviced by César Díaz, also the guitar technician for Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan.
Main were a Britishambient band formed in 1991 by the guitarists Robert Hampson and Scott Dowson, the former members of Loop. They combined ambient sound with layers of electric guitars and dark, foreboding emotional overtones. In 2006, Hampson announced that Main had effectively been disbanded in favour of his solo work.
In October 2010, Hampson announced that he would be reactivating Main, and that along with his solo acousmatic work, he would start performing and recording in a more collaborative process with other sound artists.
In 2011, the German composer Stephan Mathieu joined Hampson for a current incarnation of Main.
