Day 19 - Slate Raven MTI - Slates’s Raven touch screens is innovative piece of kit that turns your DAW into a more analogue experience. Using the multi touch screen gives you the experience of console mixing whilst still in the digital domain.
This month i’m giving you 30 days of my favourite gear. Each day this month except for Christmas Day i’ll be sharing with you gear that I love. I hope that you enjoy. #30daysofgear#music#gearnerd#slateraven#slatedigital
@musiciansfriend Stupid Deal of the Day is becoming one of my favorite ways to get new pedals. This pedal is totally nuts and fun to play. It’s the best synth pedal I’ve ever tried. But @pigtronix why is the box so enormous?!
Chopped ‘ACPC’ project (coined ACPC as I cba continually writing out ‘chopped’) proof of concept.
Considering this idea has been knocking around in my head for a few years and only tried it now because CPCs have been massively devalued in the uk, I think this going to work surprisingly well. Airlite cummerbund doesn’t interfere with the harness attachment to the rear plate bag (one of my main concerns), the cummerbund will be long enough to go around the radios and side plates, and the chopped harness has retained a decent amount of support & comfort. Fingers crossed. #multicam#crye#cryecpc#gearnerd#nylonjunky#customgear#gearwhore
First attempt at a turret layout, or "point to point" if you wanna get fancy... Germanium Tone Bender Mk II. I used 2n649 NPN transistors for this build, and because I screwed up the enclosure with an unnecessary hole, i added a bias switch that changes the bias resistor on the collector of Q3 from 4.5v to 8.5v. Too much here say online about the proper bias voltage, so i gave the option for both. Im really surprised by the controversy there, because they are pretty drastically differant. 4.5v is much quiter and less fuzzy, more like a distortion. 8.5v is louder and fuzzier, but gated on the sustain, which i dont like. No idea which way is proper, but if im biasing correctly, than 4.5v is more pleasing to my ear. Only issue with it is the volume needs to be maxed for unity. 8.5v gives way more headroom. Im sure next one i attempt will give completely differant results at differant voltages, as im learning that its pretty hard to get a consistant sound when working with germanium. Either way, the sounds im getting from this thing are epic! #fuzz#fuzzbox#tonebender#germanium#stompboxes#diyeffects#diystompboxes#effectspedals#guitarplayer#gearnerd
Day 18 - Ocean Way Studio - Sometimes the best piece of gear doesn’t fit in a rack or your gig bag. The room where you record can shape the warm and the size of your recordings. Ocean Way opened in 1961 playing a huge part of the sound from Ray Charles to the Beach Boys.

Filmed an assembly of this GH5 camera cage sent by NiceyRig excited to share as it helps to balance out the weight with the sigma combo. The wood touch makes it extra 🔥 #gh5
We’ve been quiet, only because we have been busy. The release of the new amp line is right around the corner. Pictured is the NP302 dual channel EL84 Driven 30 watt monster. Simple layout and controls. Each channel has its own EQ, Gain, and MV. Bypass-able FX loop. We’re considering offering an FX loop bypass directly on the foot switch. Also available in El34 and 6L6 version.
Longest DOD pedal name:
FX100 Integrated Tube Even Harmonic Overdrive
I’m still kind of figuring out how to use this. It’s an overdrive, but it’s also a preamp with a line out. I’m probably just going to put it back in it’s box for now. I have enough problems already.
