What absolute marketing CRAP!   :evil:  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

Lord have mercy!  I am gonna hurl!


Yeah, that is one of the more stupid examples which has been posted here before.  But audiofools love that kind of stuff.  I know one guy who would only use pennies from a certain year to prop up one corner of his turntable.  

Gotta love it when someone can sell lacquer for 120,000 Euros PER LITRE.  Wish I had thought of it first, the creator is probably laughing his ass off in his bathtub full of money :) :)

Whew check out this one !!! I got it from James Randi's site. Wow who knew?

"HEALING YOUR INSTRUMENT
Reader Chris Turner of Swindon, UK, tells us that we can get "Vortex
healing" of musical instruments - and people - from Beliefnet by going
to http://www.suzimorris.co.uk A questioner asked the "experts" this:
    Can you please describe the healing procedure for a guitar -
step-by-step, if possible.
The answer followed:
    Ok, but it is in nomenclature... If I am sitting, then
instrument (guitar) is place on my legs or on the floor in front of me.
I channel various forms of wizard thread, (depending on level this can
be one thread type or many), from my navel out my hands and into the
instrument. No the naked eye can not percieve [sic] this unless they are
very psychicly [sic] gifted (for example I see auras plain as day, as
well as some chakras, but I do not see the thread however I feel it
physicaly [sic] leave my hands/fingers). I intend the thread to form "a
structure that will fix and heal this guitar as much as possible as well
as improve the musical sound it makes as much as possible" or some other
simular [sic] thought. Then the structure is put in the instrument.
After that, I perform a "full navel hook up" to the instrument, (while
touching it lightly with my palms or not touching) where I ask Merlin
(Mehindra) to fix it and repair it as much as possible while I
concentrate on using Mauma. I ask Mauma to do a "full vortex healing on
the instrument" and Mauma does. Two or 3 min. later, the instrument
sounds as good or better than new (most often, but if it is litteraly
[sic] junk, don't expect a miracle [sic] although they do happen...)

    Wizard thread comes from an "energy ball" that is in the navel
of someone who has taken the advanced class. Other classes have other
"balls" that are also given as gifts of power to all students. You can
do structures for nearly anything, and some of them can give instant
results for many situations.
    A full navel hook up is an energetic embilical [sic] cord of
sorts that allows you to hook up to a person or thing and then act as a
channel through which Merlin (Mehindra) and Mauma can work directly on
the issue, ect. [sic] You can feel physical pressure in the navel when
turning it on, as well as energy moving through it."

Now if you'll excuse me I think I just wet myself. :shock:

I wouldn`t leave the pot unconnected:
I`d turn it into a true passive negative logarithmic gain control
(pot=attenuator at the output).

Don`t forget a blue or purple or ultraviolet blinking indicator LED.

Of course,the 4558 should be "burnt in".

There should be a transparent cut-out on top or bottom of the box,
where you can see, if the stomp-switch is a real blue 9-lugged one....

Can it be any old rubber band or does Eric Johnson have to put it on himself?  :lol:



I like the vintage rubber bands best. Hey, what if we dipped the rubber band in the "tubeolator" paint!!!

as he rushes off to patent the idea.............

Now that you guys have brought up power cords, I feel obliged to tell you that $200 power cords will only get you so far... specifically, from the wall to your gear. Imagine all the other tone-sucking things your electricity has to go through... power lines, your home's circuit breaker, wiring in the wall, and often times your neighbors' houses! Horrible tone suckage!

I have recently started a consulting firm that will work with all necessary parties to get your tone up to par. We offer:
-Creation of a dedicated line from the power plant to your house, eliminating noise from neighbors' houses. These run one mile underground to get rid of problems caused by "sewer interference," a problem voted #2 on Bedroom Guitar Player's 2003 list of "tone suckers that go uncorrected."
-Only the finest power cabling from the plant to your house. Sure, it may cost $100 a foot, and you may be 10 miles from the plant, and you may need two cords, but ask yourself: can you put a price on your tone? You most certainly cannot.
-Refitting of turbines, gears, and other parts at the plant to super-rare metal alloys.
-A team of highly trained power plant workers to deliver you with the highest-quality power.
-All power systems at the plant are retrofitted with carbon comp resistors, chickenhead knobs, NOS switches/jacks, JRC4558 opamps burnt in by SRV himself, etc. If the other guys can do it to your stompboxes, we can do it here.
-Finally, even the coal/uranium that gives off your energy impacts your tone. After we secure your personal supply of 1960's nuclear materials from the Cold War, you'll be amazed how well you can play! You'll swear an Iron Curtain was lifted from over your amp.

(ok, that last one was absolutely horrible. I'm cutting my losses and quitting now)

Call me a nerd! Call me a geek!...

I love these power cords.  :P

They don't call me Coco Gadget for nothing...

I was about to mention that we should use shielded power cables. That's what I received with my remote usb drive/cd/dvd box. But the braided power cord looks much better. So it must sound better.  :wink:

Simple:
*anything* that draws fevered responses, but does not in any way adhere or abide to logic, nature and human ability to actually distinguish it from anything else in a double blind A-B.
Oh, and I love chicken-head knobs. Sorry. I dearly hope I'm not the only one buying them from Steve.
