Wasn't much of a Type O Negative fan past the October Rust album. But from what I remember during the Bloody Kisses and October Rust period, Kenny Hickey used a Fernandes Revolver, which is a strat looking thing, but it came with some kind of special "Fernandes Sustainer" system on-board, which was some kind of feedback looper thingy that he used create a lot of those feedback squeals and long sustains heard so often on those two albums.

I'm considering getting into synths, kinda because I like some of the synth and mellotron sounds that bands like Pink Floyd, Genesis, and ELP used back in the 70's. I can't really play piano though. But at these prices... maybe I could learn.

Behringer makes a dirt dirt dirt cheap line of guitar effects pedals, the cheapest in the business probably. And apparently some of them aren't terrible. People say the Behringer chorus pedal is comparable to the sound of a Boss chorus. Others aren't so great. They have one pedal that attempts to copy the somewhat-rare and sought after Boss Heavy Metal distortion pedal, and it's not a good approximation, the midrange is way off.

I hadn't been paying attention, but apparently they're making synths and synth consoles now too, and they're very affordable compared to the Moog's. According to reviews, Moog is a little better quality, but while you might "get what you pay for", it looks like you can get close enough for less money.

Behringer Neutron goes for 300 at Guitar Center. This one has a patchbay onboard that routes everything in any crazy way you can imagine.

Spotted this piece on the Guitar Center site, selling at the Lake Forest CA store.

https://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/In-Store-Vintage/Vintage-Vintage-1960s-Binson-Guild-Echorec-Effect-Pedal-115774476.gc



I'm pretty sure it's not the same model since it's branded "Guild", but if you've ever seen the Pink Floyd Live from Pompeii film, this is the strange multi-head delay unit that David Gilmour is seen sitting on ground and manipulating the knobs off to get some of those trippy echo sounds. They are highly collectible, and honestly, I'm surprised someone would've hocked one to Guitar Center of all places.



Here's a good demo of one in action, although the guy isn't really "playing" very much through it, just plucking to muted notes mostly to show the different styles of repeats it renders. A really really cool old school echo unit. The next pedal I add to my board in progress is probably gonna be a delay, and Catalinbread makes an "Echorec" delay pedal based on the sound of these old units. I'm still on the fence, debating whether to try one or just go with a more traditional tape echo type of pedal like the Dunlop Echoplex I've been eyeing.

<span data-s9e-mediaembed="youtube" style="display:inline-block;width:100%;max-width:640px"><span style="display:block;overflow:hidden;position:relative;padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" style="background:url(https://i.ytimg.com/vi/Ws2GPpHuxlk/hqdefault.jpg) 50% 50% / cover;border:0;height:100%;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ws2GPpHuxlk"></iframe></span></span><br /><a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/Ws2GPpHuxlk" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/Ws2GPpHuxlk</a>

In the video, he has the top cover off the unit and you can see the revolving drum and each of the 8 or so magnetic heads that read from the drum as it turns.

Cool to see it in operation.

I understand one of these was used to produce the echo on John Bonham's When The Levee Breaks drums (contrary to an apparent urban legend stating echo occurred naturally in the room.)

Strange, seems UDP packets are being blocked somewhere in the datacenter.

Oh, of course as I type this it starts working again. (Was about to submit a trouble ticket. Let's see if it holds up.)

Multiple people were experiencing it earlier. (fatknitty, etc) Several people timed out and DC'd in spurts. It's apparently doing it again.
