  1. 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...
  2. There is hope for you yet.
  3. You suspect China views this as "an unfortunate unforeseen series of events"?
  4. Welcome to NJ, Y. The Boogaloo will be but a distant memory before Kevin Costner's Postmen find your application.
  5. Eyebrows. I'm beginning to look like The Juice Man...
  6. 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.
  7. I only play it nude.
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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.
  11. 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...
  12. So your company answered an rfq, gambled on a low bid and now has to eat the difference. That's the tarrifs fault?
  13. 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.
  14. No more stopping at red lights.
  15. Kneel is in the office...working.
  16. It was an important fish. Important fish change you.
  17. I have a bucket full of cow bells and glockenspiels to use as sinkers so you can have the experience of fishing next to Y, just without the groping.
  18. Otter absatively posolutely deserved that(and the other) fish after the prior play date we had, not to mention the priceless expression on his face as said fish rocketed out of his grasp while Tim fumbled for the camera. I, sir, and truly richer for that.
  19. Oh, I can make Thursday. NVM. In case you were all concerned.
  20. Too slow at the draw, Boomer.
  21. Yeah but there's probably all kinds of DNA, evidence and "other", on it...
  22. Give it a proper sendoff.
  23. If 5 of that is mine Tom, I sent you 90 when you said it would be about...well 90.
