#itsbeenawhile since I got to #jam with my #brotherinlaw @alex.marmor but we jumped into it #justlikeoldtimes 🤘🏻 Wrote this #riff for bass the other day and Alex learned and transposed it to a #harmony in like 25 minutes so obviously we played it on #twoguitars. Makes me wish I knew music theory haha. Still got your chops dude! #brotherlylove #shred #harmony #guitar #prog #progrock #riffwars #gibsonlespaulstudio #epiphonelespauljunior #fingerpicking #chickenpickin

Gettin #fuzzy about it for #fuzzyfriday 🎸 about to start my 5-day #guitarpedal #hackathon 🤓 Pretty sure I'm not using the #oscilloscope correctly, but I didn't read the instructions yet 😛 #rtfm #electronics #diyelectronics #hardware #diypedals #fuzz #lovemyswitches @lovemyswitches #madscientist #gibsonsg #orangeamps

Made a #timelapse of my first legitimate #soldering project a few weeks back. I'd been running all the simple circuits for controlling the power / directional lights / fans on my custom prototyping rig via the breadboard. But I need space on the breadboard for actual prototyping! So, I drew up my very first #schematic, spent quite a bit of time on #cablemanagement, dry-fitted the wires to a blank #pcb, and then made the #circuit permanent! Soldering is very fun when you have a nice iron and sub-1mm gauge solder wire! The backing track is just some simple #looper #improv so its not just #fastforward sounds for a whole minute. #electronics #diypedals #hardware #noob #hackaday

Super psyched to be playing with my #talkbox for the first time since I moved to #greenpoint. Sorry, I'm very rusty and not that good to begin with! A bunch of friends pitched in to get it for me as a Christmas gift a few years back, but I havent been able to use it since I moved here last October. The talkbox requires sitting between an amp and a cabinet because it's super #oldschool and draws power/signal from your head. Then it plays your guitar signal out a tiny speaker, up through a plastic tube into your mouth, where you filter the waveform by manipulating the shape of your mouth / throat. Then, a microphone picks up the sound coming out of your mouth, and plays that out of a separate speaker, with a small part of the original guitar signal still coming through the amp. Phew! Got all that? Since all I have in my place is a little 15watt @orangeamplifiers combo amp, for a while I thought i was SOL. But thanks to all of my adventures in #electronics, I've become way less nervous about #tinkering. I made a minor #modification to my amp by adding two switching jacks between the amp and the speaker, so I can plug in the talk box when I feel like it, and not have to worry about connecting the output/input jacks to each other when I'm not using it. #hacking #ampmods #talkboxtuesday #wah #gibsonsg #orangeamps #hackaday #funk

We're teaching our #officedog Walker how to ride a #skateboard. It's going surprisingly well! 🤟🏻 #dogskateboarding #skateboardingdog #defmethod #dogtraining #babysteps

Been a long, heavy week, but I finally had a few minutes to play with my #circuitry. Breadboarded my very first #fuzzpedal, based on the simple #bazzfuss circuit. 🤘🏻 It's only got one control pot for #volume, and it seems to be picking up #churchradio signals unless the volume is at exactly 9.5/10, and even then you can still faintly hear a scratchy choir unless I'm wailing on it (like in this video). She's not very well made, but I love her because... Well, I made her. 😻 In this video it's using one #redled for some super #squashed #asymmetrical #waveform #clipping, but I'm excited to try out new #diode combinations and see how they sound. 🚥 #diyguitarpedals #diyguitarpedal #guitarpedals #fuzz #fuzzpedals #fxpedals #learning #riffwars #gibsonsg #guitar

Been fallin’ deep down the #electronics #rabbithole these past few weeks. Building myself a #diyguitarpedals / general purpose #prototyping rig. Got an assortment of linear/logarithmic #potentiometers for ease of testing different values effect on circuits/tone. Made some #helpinghands and directional lights with LEDs, alligator clips and LOC-LINE hose. Threw in a de-fuming fan for health, although it’s going to need a 12volt PSU to be effective. Next steps: 1. build a sine wave generator as a constant signal source. 2. Turn the output jack into an audio probe for debugging. 3. Solder all the rig’s switches / circuits onto a compact PCB to declutter the #breadboard so it can be used for prototyping purposes only. 4. Build my first fuzz circuit. Here goes nothin’

Drums and geets are tracked. Didn't quite get to byass unfortunately. We're super happy with how everything is turning out and can't wait to get the bottom end filled out! #partyfriends #livefromtheendoftheworld #rivington66 #lowereastside #fingertapping #gibsonsg #mathrock #progrock #jazzpunk #longhair
