Little Big Muff

Terry lent us his new E-H "Little Big Muff" pedal, which he says has "the guts of a Big Muff in a smaller box." Can't wait to try it out!


The Shamblers with Terry Duvall

Terry Duvall stopped over on 12/23 to catch up and record some music. Look for a 7" of new songs from the night in the near future...


Great eBay phrasery!

Some of the finest Pro Audio marketing speak this side of Chinatown is on eBay:

Example #1:
"Your girl will oogle at the sight of those four needles dancing!"

Example #2:
"A must for any studio with ambitions"

eBay pick of the day: Neve AM6/26 compressors

Pair of Neve AM6-26 compressors

Never seen these before-- they look like a Shep SNDC6 (more so than an actual Neve 33609), cut in half and racked as two mono channels. I'm putting them on my Christmas list, right below a 500 series Lunchbox of 512cs and 525s and a pair of Royer 122s. Ho ho ho!

Shamblers practice

The Shamblers (w/ Ben Truesdale on drums) practiced tonight in the Project Room. Our set at The Sidewalk Cafe on Friday is going to be amazing.


Makeshift monitors

We ran two of The Traveler's outputs into a Behringer mixer, and ran that into a home stereo. I'm thinking about writing "Genelec" on the speakers.


First Leisure Cove dinner party

Jess made roasted chick peas with sauteed spinach, and tofu and acorn squash with turmeric over quinoa, adapted from this post from Gluten-Free Girl. We had ours without the red peppers, but it was all delicious and hearty! After dinner we played Parcheesi and had cocktails from Major Nightcaps. Charlotte, our guest for the evening, brought over these great porcelain salsa and guacamole dishes as a housewarming present. Thanks, Charlotte!
