Sad to hear that Pete Stevens, also known as Pete the Fish from Wal passed away the other day:
I used to visit the Wal workshop in High Wycombe periodically to get my Wal basses serviced, sometimes meeting Pete in the snooker club nearby.
Pete was a proper craftsman, his care and attention to my instruments over the years was fantastic, and I always enjoyed visiting the workshop and chatting with him.
I also have the best memory of Pete pulling all sorts of funny faces whilst attempting to keep my (then) baby son amused whilst I played around with my ash Wal that he had just serviced.
Condolences to his family,
