Re: Interview Request: Roy Thomas Baker . .

Or even just some stories of studio hijinks/band behavior... Wait, maybe that's more "Creem" than "Tape Op".

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

I got a volume/expression pedal from ebay recently (and a stereo cable to use for the "expression" input on several pedals I already own). Not the most bulletproof construction, but it was ~ $25. The Boss AW-3 (Dynamic Wah) made some interesting speech-like noises (one of the modes has the sound var...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

How are the SoniVox sounds? $20 well spent? absolutely worth $20. But probably worth more. I have a few other sounds I've been using so when I get time I duplicate the track so I can compare them side by side. These sound good. The only thing I've been a little disappointed with so far is no saxoph...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

no, I don't watch Fox but I am playing it safe. I don't who has touched it before it gets to my door or mailbox. certainly the person that delivered it. I'm not certain that they are wearing gloves and even if they are, they touch many packages. So until the CDC says 100% conclusively that it canno...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

I picked up a slightly used parlor guitar a few days ago, from "Simon and Patrick". Canadian maker, somehow affiliated with Godin, Seagull, and the like.
Nice price for a solid wood guitar, now to brush up on my cowboy chord work.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

A pair of attachments for my cajon (ouch!). I had a song in my head that needed castanets. They attach with velcro tape, but for my recording, sounded better unattached (the tape is just one strip in the center, and the castanet rocks too much, hitting the surface of the cajon and making a non-casta...

Given a choice between barfing on a hardwood floor and a rug, a cat will choose the rug 99.8762% of the time.
So will a dog (ask me what I was doing at 1:30 am).

I think I have the same one (Frank Bello model?).
I got a deal on it on ebay. I need to tweak the neck for the summer, somehow the strings went from too high to laying on the frets during a period of not being played.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

A Nuvo "Dood", which seems to be a kid's starter clarinet with recorder leanings. Not the worst way I've spent $30.
I got the black one with blue trim.

CraigS63: Looks cool, I love me some Bigsby, and I'm even getting accepting of Chinee guitars - some are even playable stock!
The guitar is Indonesian, I think. Still tweaking it to get the magic balance of truss rod/height/Bigsby all sort of working.

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

$27 Chinese B*gsby B7-ish bar for my $25 flea market Samick semi hollow guitar. I was looking for one without the bar the strings go under, but settled for this one. Left the old tailpiece bushings in place (it seems to sit level on them). Previous refinements included tuners, Seymour Duncan P Rails...
