If you haven't got tools - the right tools - then you're not a geek.

Heh heh.... saw one of those the other day.... What a tool, if you can use it. Otherwise a true white elephant. (Person who had the one I saw was having trouble giving it away....)

well, the degausser is nice but i'd probably only use it for my head and for 'philadelphia' type meanderings into the time vortex and when was the last time you used your multi-meter on your PC?

as for the 'Swiss Army' knives? i prefer black but has anyone ever used one in or around their PC?

Ah well, guess i wo'nt be shopping soon at any outback station...but the alligator clips make nice 'roach' holders.

thanks bob...btw are you fascinated with things Aussie for some reason? heh heh heh >{:^|

I originally was building my own guitar pedals, with my trusty "electronic projects for musicians" by Craig Anderton,(intro by Joe Walsh)when I happened on a dumpster full of free computers. The analog guitar effects projects quickly fell aside, sadly enough. Still have all the pcb-making stuff.
BTW, Craig Anderton's projects and much more can still be accessed or purchased @ <a href="http://www.paia.com">paia.com</a> along with their 'virtual museum of synthesyzers' --and you can buy a build-your-own theramin kit, or rather, several versions.
Digital audio effects are often far weaker than analog even now. Largely because of hardware; implementation.
And I bet most of your A+ alumni have never handled most of this hardware outside of their 1-2 semester evening class, bless their hearts.

My Dad, built his own Fuzz Box, he's still got it!
Works as good as the day he built it, in 1966!
A bit rusty now though :) and he's got a Wah-Wah pedal, called a CryBaby, and heaps of that sort of gear still,
He's even kept a Klempt Echo-lette, valve, tape echo!
He has to buy & splice his own tape now though.
And there's this guitarist we both like called, Jeff Beck, anyone else heard of him?, he uses the Wah-Wah pedal a lot?
Anyway sorry to answer an older thread, right now.
I had'nt noticed it before with all what has been happening.
Thank you

Jeff beck is neat but does not use the wawa petal that nuch. Ever listen to Robin Trower? One of the most under valued players around.
