Hey you... out there in the interwebs... getting... stalked by Shelob...
Mixing The Pink Floyd with Tolkien... probably not a great idea... or is it?...
But smeariously. I haven't blogged in a LONG time. I guess I haven't had much to say. I haven't released the non-awaited third Eutoxita record (I actually got 75% of the way through one and archived it... but that's another blog). Built an electric upright and a Frankenstein bass. I DID do a cool recording with my friend Christa of the Christa Renee Band, which you can download for free.
So. Know any good jokes?
Wait... pedals. I have a new obsession/hobby. I've gotten into building and modifying effects pedals. I built my friend David a pedal as a Christmas present back in '11.
I was working on a Devi Ever kit build of her Soda Meiser around the same time... until I trashed the board (break a few eggs...). I have since finished the 'Meiser (freehand on a Radio Shack perfboard) with all the mods... scary. In an awesome way:
I used it onstage with my bass for the first time this past Saturday with Floodwatch. Insane. I built a Rebote 2.5 delay circuit into a cannibalized Morley Volume enclosure. [Apparently, I neglected to take a photo of the finished pedal...] Sickness. At the same time, I built myself a Rebote 2.5 in a custom enclosure, all Soviet propaganda inspired graphics:
Also sick. I then modded a Boss PH-2 Super Phaser into another cannibalized Morley (a Volume/Wah this time) for another friend. Coolness.
My current project is taking TWO PH-2s, modding the hell out of them and running them in series in one enclosure:
I call it the Dopplergänger (do the math). Boss pedals, as it turns out DO NOT ENJOY BEING MODIFIED. Let's just say I'm learning a lot...
So yeah. What's new with you?
