New *scumble* E.P.: *Turn Me Over*


1. Turn Me Over 03:28
2. The Cheese w/ WRC 03:43
3. One and Done 03:24

So WRC sent Vlayman a cool drum track and he wrote a song and sent it to Granx who did some work and sent it back. Then Granx and Vlayman did it two more times and Granx said it should be a E.P. so Vlayman mixt and masturded it and got Sr. Jose Jones drunk on some *vino de caja* and he conceived the fartwerk and then Grankspoine birthered it.

All this shite c. ’18.

Re Jazzmasters and Jizzmisters

Over at Lost Overture a friend really hates the Jazzmaster trend, and was beeyotchin’ about them when I used this link


I responded, thus:

This singer is playing a Bass VI, of course.

But lemme tellya why I like my Revelation RTF60 Jizzmister.

Jizzmisters are easy to play, the shape is ergonomic and they feel big but light.

My fave part is that the P-90’s are a bright and not-hefty single-coil sound, a little thinner even than some Strat-types.

I do not like Strats, never did.

I love my G&L F-100’s, but they are a solid and professional guitar; mine are vintage and somewhat valuable.

My Fernandes Strat-type Sustainer models are their own thing, and mostly exist – for me – for the sustainer circuit, (tho’ they certainly don’t have to – great guitars – and I like my Fernandes bass, also.)

I love my Tele and Tele-types.

The Jizzmister is like a Strat-ifried Tele in some ways, but sounds and feels just different enough – I would say, “looser” – than a Tele or Strat that it is inspiring in its difference.

like fighting my guitars to get my leads out; it makes me slow down, it makes me use pedals and my amps with more attention to settings and touch.

Plus, me, I kinda look for a Thurston Moore/J. Mascis/Dream Syndicate vibe.

Re: Tube rolling 2018

Inna TOMB thread I wrote:

I own a few (Ok, under 10) tube amps.
I bought a bias meter, have read how to do it, seen the vids.

In the past, I accidentally took 120v. futzing with a amp – reached back in immediately and did it again. :shock: Not uncommon, I’m told.

Anywhat, I’ve never biased an amp, some of what I’ve been playing since the 80’s.
I change tubes only as needed – which for me means when they burn up or break.

Now, I’m not a road dog, firing up for a gig every night.
My amps might be on for 3-4 hours for a cuppla nights a month, max.
Some get played a half-hour, 1x a month or every other, even.

Truth be told, I had to re-cap and change a tranny inna ’60 Rick M8E.
Otherwise the only repairs are the usual maintenance shite like pots and switches.
I did put fans in a couple of the hotter amps.

I do buy matched power tubes on the theory that they are a little more stable – they are matched to each other, but not biased for, altho’ I tend to stick with Groove tubes or JJ’s.

All sound good.

I also like 12AT7’s or even AY’s instead of 12AX7’s in my Tiny Terror and Pro,Jr – cleans ’em up some, gives more headroom. (AU’s are too quiet, but good in recording preamps and mics.) New, I’ll usually get JJ’s, but I like to buy used old tubes, particularly GE’s. I think in 30+ years of playing tube amps, I’ve burned up 3 or 4 pre-amp tubes, altho’ I have broken a few more.

I seem to burn up a power tube or 2 a year (I have 6L6’s, EL34’s, and EL84’s in my various amps.)
