    Gourmet Rat

    New edition to my family of Rat styles. This is the Hand Wired Lab Rat from Sushi Box. I already own the SMD version of this exact pedal but you can’t have too many Rats and this is point to point. The Sushi Lab Rat uses an LM308 but the JFET buffer in typical Rat or clone is replaced by a tube...

    Black Hole Sonification. Saddest of all Keys?

    The black hole at the center of Perseus emits pressure waves that create a sound that humans cannot hear (because our heads are up Uranus) that is 57 octaves below middle C. Chandra’s team creates some of the most beautiful images and videos related to astrophysics. Enjoy.

    Just received my SICON by David Bray Amps. This is point to point, handmade by Bray, a boutique amplifier maker in southern Cal. The board was designed by Bob at WestCo Pedals, he's one of my favorite pedal makers and when I asked him which fuzz I should try he sent me demos of Bray's pedal...

    Rescue Me! Bray Fuzz 1,000 Miles Away

    Somebody help me. I’m stuck in Denver until Thursday but after several months there’s a David Bray SiCon fuzz in my mail locker. To make things worse there’s also another new fuzz from (DEAD)FX and a solid chance 2 more pedals will show up next day. This is killing me. Has anyone ever had to...

    Nobody Home - Found in the Attic!

    Mrs. Floor had to skip town on a family emergency. What to do? Went to the attic and rediscovered this. It’s a dual deck. AND a case of olde timey demos, hot takes, rough mixes, car mixes, board mixes from clubs, and some goofy interviews and performances recorded off the FM. Having a blast...

    Checking Out

    Just have to ask. Who still “checks out” from a hotel? The “” represent air quotes because the clerk is just being polite in your presence. Granted I travel quite often for work, family, and sometimes for music. I’m Diamond for Life with one major hotel brand and Platinum most years on...

    Erika Wennerstrom !!! Am I Right?

    I am a fully bought-in fan of Erika Wennerstrom. Her solo and Heartless Bastards work contains some of the best recent folk story telling and her band always rocks the mood. A volcano of soul coming out her mouth and she's a really good guitar player too. I love a lot of music from a lot of...

    NPD - New Pink Day!!!

    Technically, if someone offers 1 of 10 and it's PINK and it happens early in the morning, technically it's not an impulse buy even if you already have the basic model of a pedal. And bonus points if it's pink and extra double bonus points if you can get a pink T shirt too. And if it's lower...

    Traffic - Live Set 1972

    Thanks to a dumb blog I like half the time called Dangerous Minds… Traffic full live set from 1972. I love Traffic ( the band, the other kind is soul stealing) and this is a fantastic way to spend an hour. Stop what you’re doing. Level up as Rebop Kwaku Baah’s rhythm kicks it off. shaggy from...

    Is this a Gggggghost?

    Or just the regular kind, a ghost? I'm in Wisconsin and there's a horrific lamp in my hotel room with this sliced rock clamped to an ugly lamp. But the rock appears to have a face and I look again and it's a full bodied Casper the Friendly Ghost thing. Then I look at it upside down and it...

    NPD - Grease Juicer Filter + Fuzz

    Came today! West Co Pedals Grease Juicer. It's a fat, funky, juicy follow filter with fuzz!!! Filters like to be first in the signal chain because they react to your attack. Same with fuzz. So West Co splits and processes the filter and the fuzz before merging them into greasy awesomeness...

    NFW - New Fuzz Week

    It goes without saying, I love fuzz pedals of all kinds. I know it's true, you can never have too many. Therefore, I don't have too many. I made a deal with myself that if I can go an entire month without buying a new fuzz pedal I could reward myself with a new fuzz pedal. And I did not...

    A Day at the Museum

    Took a few hours off to check out the new exhibit at the Bullock Texas History Museum. Y’all know Texas is worth learning about, you know Austin is the center of the galaxy, so it stands to reason even the State History Museum is cooler than most (all). Guitar - The Instrument that Rocked the...

    Perfect Haircut

    What makes a perfect haircut? Edging, layering, blending, color, shaving. Just kidding. What makes a haircut a Perfect Haircut is when the shop has their own beer! Here’s to day drinking and a “buzz” cut at Birds. What’s great about your salon or barbershop?

    NPD JC Emerald Pre

    I am very close to the appropriate number of preamp pedals (N), I currently am only 1 short (n+1) of my ideal number. Today the nice postal worker delivered this: JC Emerald X from Sushi Box, one of my favorite small builders. Sushi makes about 40-ish pedals a month and most of them are clone...

    NPD Browne Protein OD

    Well, it happened again. It keeps happening. I open my parcel box and there's a pedal. I've been wanting to try one of these for quite a while and finally pulled the trigger. I think my hesitation was that it's dual. But wow, super glad I did. The good news is I love it already, both...
