    Thanks, David. I will pick that up. It will give good perspective to hear another bit of your history/development.

    i just listened to that --- the last piece (one of mine) sounds like it was destroyed, and someone tried to re-constitute it: it burbles, goes underwater, almost returns: ha!

    the first 2 Everyman Band releases (ECM, 1981 & 1983) are kind of interesting, imo, as is the Mark Nauseef record on CMP, "Sura" (1980). "best laid plans" (ECM, 1984) was laying future groundwork, but it was groundwork begun when geoff gordon & i were very, very young.

    but, oh..... the crazy sessions i've done, whoa: maybe they kinda reflect being raised by children of diasporic immigrants w/pretty distinct personality disorders, god love them! yup. heart & lol.

    Nah,cousin Snakedog's a sweetheart. Cousin Stephanie is the one you don't want to cross.

    Thanks for watching.

    Thanks. That little DM25 has a nice trem but it can get overwhelmingly thumpy in a hurry. I only had the trem control cracked open a little bit.

    Thanks, again, David. Didn't know about "Sura", but it just finished downloading. :)

    Lordy lordy, it's landlord torment time for my upstairs friends, lol. Fuzz Factory into Nonts and looping is Particle for the most part, with a little sneaky catch 'n grab with the DD500 in spots. Ai yi yi!

    I'm sorry, I meant what configuration is your bat? Si,ge, fuzz face or mk 1.5.

    I'm not sure which to try!

    I'm late to the party but Tele is my most commonly favouritest guitar. Mine was made and handwound by a local Costa Guitars with a baseball bat neck. Very high action and I can bang it. Also great with all fuzzes. My Les Paul i.e. is only great with a few fuzzes. But the greatest with fuzz for me is my goldfoil semi hollow H78. It has this 3D, almost acoustic quality by itself and it's character shows through whatever amount of fuzz. And I notice that also in David Torn's Foilbuckers. Makes me crave Ronin Foilbuckers. But on a baseball bat Tele. Would that work well?

    Whoa! And I thought throbak's were eye wateringly expensive.

    No criticism though. They look very substantial pickups.

    Maybe we could join towards a quantity discount! They're not cheap and I'm just in the middle of moving my workshop/studio and money just runs out of my pocket on that. And due to the long overdue breakage of the old Colonial Ways, money doesn't flow into my pocket. But Foilbuckers are on my list right after a new window and loads of rockwool.

    The one I have is the 108 transistor...I think...so I do want the next one to be germanium or different at least. I think I am going with a Mk1.5 type but am kinda sorting it myself. The correct answer in this case is: We can't go wrong...they are all gonna rule.

    Captain Redundoh! back atcha with another lump o' noise. Tensor pitch toggle frenzy with Particle V2 looping and a bit of studio mag-ick for the ending.

    I don't know, but I like bigger necks. That Goldfoil sounds like a great guitar.
