compressed and impressed

tweaked tone settings on my ampeg b2r. borrowed a compressor and learned how to use it. am impressed how nice it sounds to be compressed (lightly).

gettin woody

sadly had to cut down old oak that had died. silver lining = lots of firewood for the fireplace and chimenea and to share with friends !!!

spring incoming

you know spring is soon to be in pensacola when you see a bunch of robins feeding in the yard.

hot idea . . . cold feets

working up the courage to take a perfectly functional bass and rout to drop the bridge lower into the body and rout out a new cavity to replace a jazz single-coil pickup with a humbucker. will post before and after pics if all goes well.

chickens ?!?!?

yeah . . . chickens. a whole herd of them in my yard in the middle of pensacola. was tempted to shoot one for dinner but the local constabulary would probably take a dim view of that. now keep thinking of arroz con pollo.

'nother newsed 5-string bass
