RCA 816 Mercury Vapor Rectifier Advert

The 816 is the Junior of the 866/866A.
Might need to procure a few of these as well.

David Byrne And Brookly Music Factory

I'll always be a David Byrne fan. He is out there having a blast and continuing to make great music. His label Luka Bop has released some of the hottest tracks I've heard. This clip is of David Byrne collaborating with a band of mostly kids from the Brooklyn Music Factory and Doug Hream Blunt.



The amazing evolution of Doug Hream Blunt continues! From never performing live in his entire life… we have just finished three shows here in New York, where he performed with a terrific band of 13-14 year old girls and boys (thank you Brooklyn Music Factory and Clover & The Clockworks!), various professional musicians from around the city… and David Byrne! Here is a video from the last show we did at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, which was made by Doug’s percussionist Geoffrey Hug and his crew.
We would like to send special thanks to Ace hotel and Martin Guitar for believing in Doug to begin with – and who’s String Theory project is bringing him around the world! Also, warm thanks  Amanda Khiri, Dave Levy, Joakim and Luke Jenner for playing with Doug in New York, and to everyone that attended his shows.

Here is more about Doug Hream Blunt. It turns out he has roots in Arkansas as well. Here is a small clip about Doug. Very cool.

Eimac Tubes

I cleaned up these Eimac tubes a 100TH, two 35T and two 3C24. They cleaned up really well.
Flash and no flash.

JWC DIY Mini Punch Kit Dual 12 inch woofer Tractrix From FastlaneAudio Part 2

 So this is building the outer cabinet around Fastlane's Minipunch horn which is not part of the ordered kit. This video is shorter than the first and more basic. There is no testing or "finishing" of the cabinet but rather to show the simple steps to complete the woodworking part of the build. Go to FastlaneAudio.com for more info and pictures.

Here is a link to part 1

I like the styling of the Fairchild equipment especially their 240 preamp.
 Original and newer style.

JWC DIY Mini Punch Kit From Fast Lane Audio

Here is a cool DIY bass horn project you should check out. The design is from my friend JC but the kit is the brainchild of Fast Lane Audio. They have several horn kits available but this is the latest one. I own several of JC's bass horns and they are all a lot of fun as I expect the minipunch is as well.
Here is a video of the build process JC put together. It is very detailed and he doesn't miss a thing. If you want to pick up a kit from Fast Lane Audio this video is a must watch.  

Some pics of project in progress.
 Fast Lane Audio does great CNC work which makes these projects so easy to put together.




 I can't wait to here this horn project.

Pussy Riot - Straight Outta Vagina

A message from Pussy Riot to Trump. 




Perhaps I only posted  for the title...  They know how to turn a phrase.
