    Reminds of BOC doing a test on gas bottles...
    open air...boom...flattened steel plate...buried one ...boom....crater and no bits of gas bottle to be seen
    was working in a quarry....checking lifting tackle...they forgot to tell me about the charges they had set...evacuated to safe distance...awesome...
    been underground doing lifting tackle inspections...boom..jumped so high i nearly bashed me head on roof and almost soiled my undergarments..i dont like being underground during those times...bits of roof within shock wave range (and walls) can fail from the effects....scary

    I think that's the actual space capsule,

    that they sent the first chimp into space in the late 1950s.

    From the song "The Kerry Recruit"

    "Now that was the story that my grandfather told
    As he sat by the fire all withered and old
    'Remember,' said he,'that the Irish fight well
    But the Russian artillery's hotter than Hell.' "

    I think that was popular with some of the guitarists of the Shrapnel Records label.

    T-57s are junk, get an original germanium T-56. Much better tone.

    Russian one doesn't need a cable. It has bluetooth. Step on it and get blue teeth.

    The same circuit can be found in the rare Wampler Red Mist Fuzz.

    These are extremely rare, all known owners disappear with them.

    also has NOS Russian tubes on board, which is a pity, as I have a feeling they may not last too long.

    The US version has a special tone cable employing the TK421 modification that gives an extra 3 or 4 quads per channel. Literally blows Bluetooth away. :lol:

    crisper attack....more musical delay to the tone....and the contents mix is more refined....more bang for your buck
    just dont leave it in the car when you go shopping in summer...bit sensitive to the heat
