Dubious Randomness

You’re here, and I’m sure there’s some sort of a reason, most likely an awful mistake, but I’ll make it worth your it.

There’s mainly 3 things here, because I AM 3 things: a Musician, an Electronics Engineer, and a Big-Mouthed Asshole. So in order of appearance:

Music:

Here you’ll find all about 230, my band, which also has its own YouTube Channel, Soundcloud, Bandcamp and is also on Spotify and every single digital store. There’s also some collaboration work I’ve done with immensely talented people, so check them out, or what the hell, contact me and maybe we’ll do something.

Analog Multi-FX:

Yeah, I did that shit.

It’s an all-analog, yet digitally controlled, Multi-FX unit for musical instruments.

How awesome is that? I even took some of my old DIY, shamelessly cloned guitar pedals, and I re-cloned them into easy plug-and-play modules you just throw in, set up to taste, arrange in any order, store presets… it’s limitless, it’s analog, and nobody has ever done anything even remotely close to that. Check out the videos, it’s fucking awesome!

Other bullshit, mostly tech stuff:

So the previous category was about me being an Electronics Engineer, while this one is more about me being a big-mouthed asshole who incidentally happens to be an Electronics Engineer.

The thing is, I like arguing about pointless shit like the effects of tonewood on guitars (which is a debate mostly led by flat-earthers) and the magic behind snake-oil capacitors.

I don’t do it out of sheer arrogance. Honestly, there was a time when I couldn’t tell the difference between pickups on a guitar by playing the damn thing, and I didn’t use the knobs on my guitar (seriously, not even the volume – I was 20-something, not 10, so go figure). Now I know about those things and in quite some depth, so I try to help when I can. Otherwise, I shut the fuck up, but if I don’t, I’ll try to post it here, not only on thegearpage.net or the likes.

 

There’s some other stuff that I’ll just throw into More Randomness if I feel like it. I wanted to try and keep this from getting too bloggy, but who knows. We’ll see how it goes.

Alright that’s it.

Yeah, I make recipe videos now, bilingual recipe videos. Not wearing an apron yet but crazier shit has happened so I wouldn’t rule that one out either.

 

An instrumental collaboration with RetoricaUY. She’s the shit. Check out her work on IG @retoricauy, or click: https://www.instagram.com/retoricauy/

Got asked to check why an EHX Metal Muff wouldn’t work. It was a dirty switch, so I opened it up and cleaned it instead of tossing it in the trash so that it could be eaten later by a sea toad.

Should’ve put subtitles, but you can easily tell what I’m doing so it might be better to mute and ignore the pointless dribble.

 

 

I made me an Instagram profile so I can upload nude selfies but since I’ve been making my own bread, I though it’d be wiser to post guitars instead.

 

I thought I’d kick it off with a pic of my new strap from the dude I get all my gearhead news from: Andy a.k.a. Guitarbear.

Sir, you’re the shit, I’ll never get tired of repeating that. Cheers!

I’m not one for jumping on other people’s parties, but since I absolutely love this one in particular, I’m going off the script here.

If you want to keep up to date with basically anything that goes on when it comes to guitars, gear and pretty much anything else, check out some cool projects (with the occasional plush guest) or simply be a nice creep and stalk a good guy, Guitarbear is your place.

Happy birthday Guitarbear, I hope every weirdo on the intertubez shows up to say hi and eat snacks from your private stash!
