A Few Odds and Ends
Here you may find a few things that didn't quite fit anywhere else...:-)
The "C" Word?
Chris Dale brought over his Chamberlin M1. Compared to the Mellotron, the
Chamberlin is a bit harder to play, requiring a rather heavy and consistent hand on the
keys. The sound of the Chamberlin, though, is pretty yummy.
Chris was going to bring his Optigan, but it wouldn't fit in the car.
OK, move along, there's nothing to see here...
...but Fritz snuck back to give 'er a whirl.

New Mellotron Sounds from the Pub?
||Rick thinks he's got an idea for a new Mellotron sound!
snickers under his breath: "It's been done!"
||Vicki (a.k.a. Mrs. Rick) wants to make sure Martin has it right. Oh,
sure, it's not good enough that Martin and John have a new flute sound...They've got to
re-record this as well? Oy...
Oh, that chain around Jerry Korb's
neck? It's one of the Meccano chains from his Mark I, "Julia". Goes
nicely with the T-shirt, don't ya think?
