Sampling of fifty savory non-dessert pies from all over Europe, filled with vegetables or meat or fish or poultry or cheese or eggs or  various combinations... Pot pie apparently was a Roman Empire dish served at banquets.

some of the unmentioned ones I regularly frequent here in Tampa include Jamaican beef patties and the various Cuban entries like pastelitos con carne, deviled crab, papas rellenas, or croquetas de jamon ... a little closer to my midwestern roots I feel like tamales should count as well as bierocks and kolaches

I recently got told in a fb group that I don't understand ground loops ... rather than educate (read that to mean devolving conversation) about all the various sources of hum and what to do about them, I had to walk it off and remind myself that when the only tool you have is a hammer then all problems appear to be nails

I once did a special request where they wanted to rehouse one of the joyo tech21 ripoffs but wanted a vu meter in the enclosure as well ... no real utility to it other than getting to see the needle dance

How did it turn out? I have the v55hd infinium.
Ive been looking into changing v1 to a 5751 or 12at7 as suggested above.

Did you change any other tubes from 12ax7 and are you using 6L6 or find a alternative?
I'd give two configurations a try: 2 12AY7 into a balanced 12AX7 PI and keep the 6L6s OR 3 x 12AX7 into 5881s (rebiased, of course)  ... if it were a head instead of combo I'd probably opt for the long plate 12AX7s and the 5881s

regrettably no, though it has become a running gag within the household about figgy pudding and how I won't stop until I get some

what? your phone doesn't ring twice daily with covid+ announcements from your kids' schools? They sent my youngest home for close contact quarantine on the third day of school. A couple nights ago the county school board held the mask mandate meeting and they had some grade school kid at the podium yelling at the board about how he doesn't want to wear a mask. I'm over here wondering what changed over the summer. They had mandatory masks as recently as the first week of June, now it is up for debate and opt-out? Meanwhile the farm stores are sold out of horse de-wormer because people would rather shed their intestinal lining from overdose than mask up and get vaccinated.

I just sat through First Amendment Auditor training at work ... my hot take was very "get off my lawn" ... the irony is that 20 years (and two children) ago I would have enjoyed this form of legal trolling and "I'm not touching you" brand of shenanigans

they were in stock for a while but this definitely isn't the first time they've been sold out. I wasn't even planning on building a tonebender but the last time they announced sets I bought and now I have what I consider to be my favorite pedal in my collection
