This trip we will answer that all-important burning question:
How many Mellotrons can you fit into an Acura Integra?
It was back to Vermont again for MONEYPIT...Route 93 out of Boston, to 89, to 100, to 15...and it's a long haul. But it's worth it!
You can't ask for more beautiful weather or a better place to be. The best part? No snow this time! :-)
We set up the machines in the basement work area, putting the guts of the EMI onto some saw horses to hold it up, creating what we call a Skellotron. Skellotrons make Mellotrons of any species easy to work on, and transporting a Skellotron is much easier than hauling around the whole thing.
Work would get underway on Saturday. Meanwhile, we had a little celebration:
We chowed down some birthday cake and called it a night. The next day we'd get to work...-->

In no way is any web page out here a guide for you to fix your Mellotron or how to celebrate a birthday. Your machine is your problem, as is your age. Streetly, Mellotron Archives, and the folks on the Mellotronists list may offer you tips on dealing with either and probably a lot better than I could.
