On the night shift

I picked up a second job, doing soldering work for a local synth maker. Last night was my second shift, so to speak, and my first one doing any actual soldering (the first was just bending resistor legs).

I love soldering, especially large projects like this-- something about the repetitive work calms me down and puts me in a nice mood. Granted, it could be the fumes...

Our Mission 9

Our Mission 9 case from Monorocket will be in New York in, oh, a week and a half. I cannot, cannot, cannot wait.

We've had it covered in "Fender Smooth Brown" tolex with chrome hardware (one of the last custom jobs they did-- all Mission cases are now black tolex only) and added a lid. I thought about having RCA jacks installed next to the power switch (to connect alternate spring tanks to a Doepfer A-199, should we ever buy one), but will have to wait for our next Mission 9 for that or just mod this one.

Exciting times! Look out for an embarrassment of photos once this thing arrives.
