I am building something ambitious
« on: January 30, 2018, 01:05:59 PM »
Moving on from pedals to something else I have always wanted.... and then I had to make it even better/more what I want. So it's a total scratch build.  Because I did not have quite enough projects on the go.

Here's a teaser (I might be a bit with this one; about halfway done):

No wait a minute. Land of bacon is south of your border.

(Seriously I'm very curious.)

Uhhmm, yeah the yanks have something they call Canadian bacon right? Otherwise maybe a domestic affair, Traynor-esque perhaps?

No more bacon... no more pork... no more butchers dirty hooks... (with apologies to Mike, Glen, Dennis, Neal and Vince) :mrgreen:
Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

Hmm, the other one would mean Yorkville to me, but they are essentially the same company right? I bet it something more obscure then.  :vader:

Nope: Yorkville = Traynor (like litterally).  The other one.

Didn't Garnet build some of the Gibson Lab series amps?

Be sure to include three inputs.
