    Hey All,

    I will take it for granted that most here have never heard a McInturff TerryCaster, and even less have heard one through a Chicago Blues Box.

    Attached is a link to a short video taken at Black-eyed Sally's open blues mic in downtown Hartford on Sept 13. Please judge by tone alone since this was a spontaneous and unrehearsed 'open-mic' song with disaggregated participants. The edited clips are "The House of the Rising Sun." The TerryCaster, with player (me), are on the left. The singer's girl friend took the video so most shots are of him, even during solos.

    The TerryCaster has a Voodoo Broadcaster in the bridge with a Voodoo Alnico-V Bar Soap in the neck. The Chicago Blues Box is a Kingston 18W with 6V6s and a Eminence Texas Heat speaker. Volume and both Tone controls were at 12 O'Clock and the Reverb was set at 9 O'Clock. Pedal was an Xotic RS Booster.

    The tone, not the playing, turned some heads.

    Hope ya like it.

    Wow, that sounds sweet. What pickup position are you mostly playing on?

    Sounds great. Biting, but not harsh. Very nice vibrato there!

    The Terrycaster is SO tempting. I've been threatening to buy one now for a long time :D. I think that it's unique among Terry's offerings, and could be the guitar that earns him the attention that he really deserves.

    nice clip, and great tone

    I appreciate that, since I talked to Peter recently about getting a set of his pickups.

    that sounds great. I love my Terrycaster. Mine has the same pickup config as yours.
    I recently did some studio work for a guy locally and captured some of the best clean tones I've ever recorded. If I can get a copy I will post a snippet.
