I can't believe some people need to be told to not try and get a sun-tan on their perineum. (For those who don't know, it's the bit of skin between the playground and the pooper.)

Next thing you know, people will need warnings to not stand on traintracks while taking a selfie. (Yes, I know...)

The world is full of stupid and like entropy it only seems to increase.

Open Discussion / Re: Power Supply Units (PSU) and Pedalboards

Amateurs think tactics, professionals think logistics. It applies to guitar pedals just as much as it applies to military matters. A good pedal board, power supply and cables are a hell of a lot more important then OMGZ I MUST HAVE THIS NEW OVERDRIVE!!! Although I reckon you have to go through your sprawled out collection of daisy chained pedals before coming to the realization that A: I need something better then this and B: what do I actually need in pedals and how am I going to fit and power that on a board?

IMO, any fuzz that won't work after a buffer is just a poorly designed circuit. Like Juan said, look to the muff family or if you like the FF topology, look to Skreddy circuits like screwdriver and lunar module.

I fully agree. We no longer live in the 1960's when men had barely set foot on the moon. It's 2019. We can build probes that can visit worlds in deep space. Surely we can build a fuzz that plays nice with buffers and acts like it should act behind a buffer. To not do so is lazy design.

For guitar you can't go wrong with the Violet Ram, if the dude plays bass you can't go wrong with a Green Russian. Whichever version you pick, be sure to include a Skreddy style mids switch on them. Those make the instant difference between disappearing into a mix and bam! There you are again! Mids switches should be mandatory on Muffs IMHO.

YouTube has a live video feed with chat thingy. As far as Skype goes, I think youíre only limited by your bandwidth.

Does this YouTube feature still work/exist? I used to use that for a book club Iím in, but I think that something changed and we werenít able to use that functionality in the past few months?

Youtube live chats seems to be almost all many youtubers do these days. It seems to be a format that youtube pushes the creatives for and which many of them like as it means getting donations from their followers. Which after the recent adpocalypes and video demonetizations becomes all the more necessary for many youtubers.

... I got an Axe FX I spend most forum time on the Fractal forum now these days.

You know who won in that movie right?  :P

Come to think of it I can't remember if I ever ordered from Mammoth. They got some stuff I'd like, but whenever I felt like ordering, when it was time to check out and saw what they were charging to ship to Europe I went I don't think I like that stuff that much. I'll see what's on offer on Musikding.

You mean everyoneís daily ritual isnít wake up, coffee, puup, check DIYSB and MB forum?  ;D

I'm not a member of DIYSB, I think I am on FSB but I can't remember the last time I checked there, I check MB only when at work (to pass the time when the boss is not looking). And as I got an Axe FX I spend most forum time on the Fractal forum now these days. And also I don't like coffee. Vile tasting stuff.   :-[

What a crappy friend.

Friend is a relative term it would seem.

Rule of thumb, when lending gear to friends/bandmates/other musicians, get it back ASAP, for if they have it too long they start thinking its theirs.

My sister's younger cat likes drinking falling water from running taps, so she bought a cat water bowl with a built in fountain. (It runs off USB, which I guess dodges the whole international power supply issue.)

Fill the reservoir, plug it in, off the water gurgles. And the cat?

Intense suspicion.

I come back an hour later and the cat has a dry face, a wet tail, and there is water all around the lino around the new water bowl fountain.


I used to have one who loved taking a nap in wash basins. And who had discovered that if he licked long and hard enough at the faucet water would come out. And he sometimes did it while lying in the basin, getting water splattered all over him.

I miss the little bugger.  :(

I'm going to say Not Small Bear or BLMS based on their responses over on DIYStompboxes. I think we are a thorn in the side of Mouser and Arrow. I'm going to go for an oddball - Stewmac.

You can't just drop a bomb like that and not explain as to what happened on DIYStompboxes. Not everyone goes there.

It's a jFet tester for measuring vgs. Looks like the one that came with the first version of the NomNom.

I think I ordered a NomNom just to get that tester board.  ;D

Chef's salty chocolate balls would also have been acceptable.

I think the real reason for the massively inflated price is that Internet lore says SRV used/touched/breathed on a TS-10 at some point. So naturally, if you get a will become SRV.

That's the unwritten internet law of tone chasing. Only if you get the exact same gear as your idol will you sound like your idol.

Congratulations. Does this make nr. 2 or 3?

My local music shop has a TS-10 in the window for AUD$690, based on it having a japanese 4580 in it. 

I picked one up for my brother in 93 for AUD$75.  We swapped some gear around years ago and I ended up with it, and I lent it to the guitarist in my band.  Long story short, he sold it on ebay around 2007 after I asked for it back.  Bit bloody annoyed about that, seeing you couldn't give them away in the 90s.

I'd be more annoyed that he sold something that wasn't his to begin with. That's theft. He owes you an original TS-10.

The Indo Dutch supplied a lot of musicians when they returned to the Netherlands. There were a lot of what they called Indo rock bands in the Netherlands in the 50's and 60's, and the genre still somewhat exists to this day. No Indonesian market is complete without an indo rock band. At one point my father and all his brothers were in bands in their youth, and he and his younger brother had a very successful coverband in the 70's. It's one of my earliest memories as a kid that I was at one of their rehearsals. And of all their children half still do something with music today.

And yes, Indonesian food is the best. There are lots of Indonesian restaurants and shops in the Netherlands. Together with Chinese food it was the first 'ethnic food' that was popularized in the Netherlands, long before non-Western food, or even non-Dutch food became trendy. Although it probably tastes completely different from the real thing due to different Western tastes.

It seems that there's plenty of Netherlands blood on this board.  My father was born in Rotterdam. 

Welkom bij de club! We have fries with mayonaise, stroopwafels and raw herring at the Dutch side and Nasi Goreng and spek cake at the Indo side of the buffet table.
