Jamz & Zizza had an extra hour or two so we made a music!

It has been a productive week!

Often when i clean my house i put on a record to add some groove to the mundane.  Several of the Big Audio Dynamite records are in heavy rotation.  They are infectious, fun, uplifted, and groovy!

Sleepless weeks are often productive weeks!

I tried something different this time.  I only have 18 inputs on my DAW so i often have to overdub percussion and synths afterwards which can be good and bad.  So this time i used the first recording round of 18 inputs for only drums!

The guys gave me the go ahead to finish this beast off!

I cut the feeble grey power chord and put a properly grounded IEC socket on the back panel.

I hunted the rest of the dust bunnies and lubricated the faders one more time to make sure they are smooth and travel happily.

I checked out the bottom of the key bed again and tweaked a few key contacts that looked bent or twisted.

I put the felt switch gaskets where they are supposed to be:  someone had put them on the knob pots instead of the switches.

( the pic shows them in the wrong place! )

It’s a rare beast and really is beautiful.  Even with the crazy 90’s fender knobs!
