    Yes, I got paid to drive to Los Angeles in my bosses Corvette and get a pedalboard. How awesome is that? :cool:

    I went with my boss to pick up his pedalboard that Dave @ LA Sound had finished up and snapped some pictures while I was there. He shares a space with LA Vintage Gear.

    Dave is a super nice guy and let me poke around his shop. His work is so clean and the board is literally dead silent even with the vintage Thomas Organ Wah.

    The first board is my bosses and the next two are Daves followed by some that are in line for completion.

    God, I'd lose a week of my life in there playing if he'd let me.

    His vintage EHX board looks like a lot of FUN!!!

    Wow. Great shop. Lucky dog you are.

    Are those his actual settings (if you know) that he plays with?

    Haven't been there in a while. Last time I was there I needed Roy to fix my amp. Got to play his amps and met Mr. Berkos as well. Still loving my Third Stone Fuzz.

    I need to get up there and try those Morgan amps!!!

    Nice gear, but I'm actually more impressed with the fact you drove the Vette, AND got paid!
    FTW

    My favorite spot in L.A. Dave is great people and a true tone guru. Also, having Clif and LAVG right in next door is awesome. All great guys who care immensely about gear and tone.
