I was learning piano at the time and had just passed my grade 4 theory and practical so had very eager ears. I suddenly ... Read more

Opening Hours for Santa World Tour 2015

It has come to our attention that there is a large group of heathens out in the big wild world that don't accept the vast evidence for the existence of Santa. How these people can live with themselves in the face of years of documented sightings by millions of children all over the world is unfathomable. Just Google Santa if you don't believe us! We hope everyone does their bit this year to share Santa's goodness all over the world and we ... Read more

$3K Dex! What Do You Get For The Money?

UPDATED APRIL 2015 (see below) A client brought in a couple of Dex he had just purchased from a reputable Ebay seller. This seller's product looks awesome, has all the fruit and are very well presented. By the time you get them freighted you're up for AU$3000. I was looking forward to seeing these dex as I've followed modding and customisation since day one and have "watched" many of the Ebay seller's dex in awe. Bet they're amazing right? Everything perfect, smooth, ... Read more

NO DRINKS

No Drinks Please!!!

I have just reconed six EV EVX180 18" 1000W drivers (woofers). It was probably one of the worst reconing jobs I have had to do. The drivers were from three MTL-2BT cabinets which are in the EV Manifold Technology family where the woofers are mounted horizontally opposite each other and push air into a cavity in the centre of the cabinet. They're capable of 130.5dB when driven with 1200 Watts and the cabinet tuning is 37Hz. They were/are a ... Read more

Nothing else will fit without unsightly modification. The Black Widow ... Read more

Seriously Dodgy Backyard Repairs On Neve Channel Strips

Now, imma not mention any names here but... Not that long ago here in Perth, a very well know international trio of musicians and a major touring act, purchased from Ebay, a bucket of very awesome Neve 51 channel strips for their studio. They needed them racked up and a power supply made. Simple huh? I believe all that was required was +/- 16V at 3.6A, -15V at 1A and +/- 25V at 1A. Wait seems it isn't that easy to get ... Read more
