Vintage DIY Console And Turntable

This console was built by Jack Hornbeck. We will have another post featuring his work soon. I've seen many DIY consoles but I haven't seen one where the maker goes so far as to designand build  their own turntable and tonearm. This is superb vintage DIY. Top notch.

Klipsch La Scala AKA K-447 1963

I'd seen one or two ads claiming the La Scala was really a K-447. I thought this was false information so to set the record straight here is the K-447 La Scala ad from 1963. This even has the bass bin orientation in its original configuration.

Knight Kit Stereo Preamplifier 83 YX 776

 This is the preamp documentation that came along with my amp. To be honest ever since trying the Slagle AVC I've given the middle finger to preamps. Since I haven't seen it out on the electroweb I'll post it here.

William Onyeabor - Fantastic Man - Nigerian Smooth And Good Club

 More proof that African music was more diverse and inventive than anywhere else in the world. 
William Onyeabor is a funk musician from Nigeria. His songs are often heavily rhythmic and synthesized, occasionally epic in scope, with lyrics decrying war sung by both Onyeabor himself and female backing vocalists.

Fantastic Man

Documentary for William Onyeabor but it covers a good deal of African bands I love.
