    Yeah, but what would you do when the urgent need to improve the tone of your amp though changing tubes endlessly came over you in a violent way?

    Vintage NOS transistors, obviously. ;)

    (That’s a joke, but there are pedal geeks that actually believe that’s a real thing. Just look at the ads for Tube Screamers and their clones touting “Vintage NOS JRC4558 op-amp” and want to charge through the nose for it. Or others who want to compare Texas Instruments RC4558s to Panasonic OP77s and swap them out... Endlessly! Ridiculous, I say!)

    this reminds me of the story of 2 college professors- one history, the other political science- who became fast friends. they did everything together. at some point the decision is made to try out a nearby nudist colony. they spend a wonderful day enjoying the outdoors and that evening they sat out on the porch of their little bungalow, had a glass of wine, and watched the sunset. at one point the conversation lags and to get it going again the history professor asks "have you read Marx?" to which his friend replied
    "i believe it's the Wicker furniture."

    Was thinking, rather, parts of the UK west of Offa's Dike and north of Hadrian's Wall, as well as one or two former UK possessions south of the Equator and east of 110 deg. East.

    For me, the Hipshot B bender.
    Yes, I’m that simple minded.
    No, I’m not kidding.
