  1. I have one of those too. It's seen some hard road time. With a couple of simple mods the MP1 is a VERY good distortion/overdrive, especially when recording direct.
  2. For the Minneapolis PD
  3. This thread needs more overdrive.
  4. Sure, you start with the fancy Mason jar setup from Amazon, move onto advanced straining techniques, then as you're driving down the highway, sipping your cold-brew and listening to Coldplay...you end up in the bushes of a rest stop with a cock in your mouth saying to yourself "God, how did I get here?!?".
  5. For about 2 weeks. Then you'll get tired of the hassle. I agree, makes the best tasting coffee. Even makes ****** coffee tolerable. But it's a huge pain in the ass. Quit now. You're welcome.
  6. Playing golf AND beeping at people teeing off are two of my favorite pastimes.
  7. **** JES. **** Cobol2. **** CICS. Chubb had a VERY good program in late 90's and produced some pretty high functioning programmers. If you worked hard and finished at the top, you were employed before you graduated and most, if not all that I know, did very well for themselves. None of the ones I know or have hired stuck with Cobol for more than a year or two then moved on. Even the bottom of the barrel that were able to stay with it also managed to find jobs, however they all went on the work for The State of New Jersey.
  8. A few strategically placed donuts and Y will loiter in that stern all day. He's the gift that keeps on giving. Keep the bills tidy with like denominations and I'll continue to feed your family.
  9. Yep. Happy to take your money again.
  10. Everyone is home from college/school, I don't have to drive 100 miles a day and KoQ taught my wife how to make bagels.
  11. I know, but I'm just trying to boost the poor bastards spirits in these dark times. He's prolly smashing the beans on the counter with a hammer and filling the infuser with mulch...
  12. There is hope for you yet.
  13. You suspect China views this as "an unfortunate unforeseen series of events"?
  14. Welcome to NJ, Y. The Boogaloo will be but a distant memory before Kevin Costner's Postmen find your application.
  15. Eyebrows. I'm beginning to look like The Juice Man...
  16. Nothing wrong with the Eleven Rack. They sound great and are versatile. I've recorded with them plenty. But it's not the same when you're only wearing the guitar AND headphones. Though you do have a place to tuck the headphone cord behind your back to keep it out of the way while you rock out with your cock out.
  17. I only play it nude.
  18. Other than Montana and Colorado? You need to draw a line through Burlington and look north. Other than November, southern VT has been ****. Too many weekends of 50 and rain. Whiteface, Sugarbush, and Sugarloaf, with the latter conditions being as good as Big Sky was. That drive to Carrabasset Valley kills me though. VT this week and mixed precip in the forecast. Snowmass the following. But this winter...
  19. On the contrary, it's snowboarding season. But that amp has given me so much joy over the years it's hard to explain. It makes sounds that shake my loins. It makes me sound like a better player than I'll ever be. It's essentially an unnamed Trainwreck Express dressed as a 70's Fender Twin with 4 6550's. I asked Ken to blackface it. Got it back a week later. In addition to the amp, he handed me box saying "this is all ****"... it was the output transformer, reverb driver, pre and power tubes and an envelope of about 20 assorted capacitors. He just understood tone like no other. He found four GE 6550's matched within 2mA of eachother. Then added a switch where I could drop the output to the first two 6550's, ONLY 95 watts , which were within 1mA of each other. He was an extraordinary dude when it came to circuits...
  20. What type of music are you playing? I'm assuming the stock speaker is a Fender Gold Label? If you WANTED my opinion, the V30 would be a mistake as it would break up too quick. Unmodded, you would just get, well, louder mud. It's a fantastic speaker, just wrong for the application IMO. You need a speaker to handle the headroom of the HRDx and break it up late. Think sensitivity <100 dB like a Celestion G12-65 or a WGS ET65 . Try one of those in there for a month before you mod it. If you are still not happy, try the V30 or 50w Reaper. I'd probably go for the Reaper first.
  21. Ken Fischer and recently Rich Koerner are dead. They are the only two legends that have "touched" my trainwrecked 190 watt(yes 190, not 135) 77' silverface twin. I don't know what I'll do when it needs to be serviced. Probably just cry and never play the guitar again. That being said, I've had some work done by Mike Sportiello (sportiesound.com) in Bound Brook on other amps and have been happy. He was Dennis Kager's apprentice for a while. And well Dennis is dead too so **** it. Just buy an Eleven Rack and go emulator...
  22. So your company answered an rfq, gambled on a low bid and now has to eat the difference. That's the tarrifs fault?
  23. Yep. Try to make today just a little bit better than yesterday. Emphasis on "try". It's a good system. Not foolproof, but a good system nonetheless.
  24. No more stopping at red lights.
  25. Kneel is in the office...working.
