08/10/2022 I was looking for an inexpensive, full-featured amp for the studio, and I recently found one. My review of the Burgera V22 Infinium amp can be found, HERE.

08/02/2022 My wife and I have been decluttering our home. This weekend, my lovely, patient wife finally got tired of a rack guitar amp system that lived in a jumble of road cases that I had stored in our upstairs hall, so she asked me to make the jumble go away. I found an interesting way to convert the old gear into newer gear. You can read about my little triumph, HERE, and a review of an interesting pedal I was able to acquire as a result, HERE.
