i'm going to take the best advice and assume that something 'else' did happen, maybe an attempt to fix an honest mistake, whatever. on top of that if something nefarious did happen, that a specific individual can not be pinned down. on top of that, to forgive the transgression, and all others. i do ...

1>>>>>> a) i've never had a bandmate sleep with a girlfriend to the best of my knowledge. for those WHO CAN'T READ, this was not the point. the example addresses the behavior of such a bandmate, not the one who's 'agency' has been exploited. b) for those WHO CAN'T READ, the 19th amendment prohibits ...

sorry. i DID open it when i bought it. i should have been more clear about that. even if not personally responsible, it's a fruit from a rotten tomato plant scenario, and that's the only clue i'm giving.

i discovered this recently when i opened the mic for the first time since buying it. the red loktite on the mounting screws is broken off. it's a different brass capsule! the time elapsed is irrelevant (it was more like 20 years, after doing the math,) the property isn't all that important (although...

1) learn how to solder PROPERLY
2) get an electronics degree (or thereabouts)
