Do It Yourself Online Pedal Merchants

Hello Team.

Once again, I made the trek to Santa Monica - and this time the $30 Dunlop GCB-95 I bought arrived. Unlike the last time I made the trek to Santa Monica, I wasn't listening to any KCRW or being thrown into horrendous confusion with southbound 405 traffic to Long Beach backing up for miles. No, today was different; and the traffic was surprisingly easy.

But, it did give me a chance to muse on some pedal things...

Extensive Fender Rhodes Electric Piano Review

So there's a group of Fender Rhodes aficionados who post by the name of "Audiotech VR" on Youtube. The video that they've posted is well over an hour long. The video describes the Rhodes Electric Piano, its pieces and its function, and a bit of history as to when it first started being built. They describe the Rhodes in its heyday and put theirs through a number of different songs and artists. They then also go through and put the Rhodes through several effects for a really cool viewing experience.

Way Huge Product Leak - The Overrated Special

Presumably Jim Dunlop, the owner of the MXR and Way Huge line of pedals, was ok with this (since they reposted it in their twitter feed on 04 Mar 2015):

Westside MI in London spied this pedal in J. Bonamassa's Instagram feed and reposted it to Twitter. Jim Dunlop reposted it without incident... Apparently this is they way you leak your new product releases and get people to talk about it...

The Electric Hurdy Gurdy

Whether on purpose, or just by dint of fate and coincidence, you've probably heard of the Donovan song "Hurdy Gurdy Man", but you probably never learned what a Hurdy Gurdy is.
