    Glad you like them.
    The coolest stuff I saw at the show:

    Pedals: Moollon-Handwired turret board construction in a pedal!
    Zvex- those copper pedals are proximity sensors.....awesome wah and trem effects. Very cool!
    Diamond-New Memory Lane upgrade is a killer pedal(and the owner is a really nice guy too)
    Amps: BadCat is making some cool new stuff(including the PodCat...see photo), Modena 60 is a killer amp, Fargen Miniplex and the new small Rivera combo is way cool. Lots of crappy sounding amps too, but I am picky.
    Guitars: HENMAN-BEVILACQUA guitars(unique design...I very alive feel), Kraken(I know Korean, but cool guitars), Taylor Electrics(I loved these), Collings electrics, Breedlove Electics.....all the acoustic builders are making well built unique instruments. I also loved the NIk Huber guitars(Great guys) and Soloway Swans.

    I am not sure which you are referring to, but the PodCat is a stereo Ipod amplifier that looked like a mini head amp. One knob, but he said he may add a tone stack to it when they go into production. Novel, but cool.

    The one that was open on top. It was in a 2 space rack encloser with no power tubes.

    Honestly, I am not sure....I took the photo for the wiring example and didn't pay attention to what it was. It sure looks like a preamp, but I can't be sure. If you email them the photo, and tell them it was in the glass case at the show, I am sure they can tell you.
    Sorry....

    Looks like you kept busy! Great photos.

    Which Moollon pedal had the turret board construction? That's pretty trick.The wiring and layout in their stuff is always incredibly neat and aesthetically pleasing.

    Hello Gang,

    I spent only one day at NAMM (Thursday) but I saw a lot. I posted my pics on my website. There was a great showing from the boutique gear guys. Fuchs has some cool new amps and pedals, Flaxwood guitars are really cool, Fargen has a new amp out and you must see the Brown Note amps! Go to my site and check out the NAMM review.

    See ya.
