Down Time


Stewart Myers and his parents Tom and Nancy arrived at the Mellotron Ranch in the rain on Saturday morning.  They had stayed the night before in Albany, New York after driving up from Virginia.  Although they wouldn't be heading directly home after the MONEYPIT, their plans left them only a few hours to spend with us at the Ranch.  So it was pretty much right down to business.

Check out the video of the unveiling of Stewart's reburbed Mellotrons:

#1332, #469, and #481 - 1'40"

Features new music from Ken Leonard and Jimmy Moore

I believe Stewart was pleased at the outcome.  The finish on #469 and #481 was quite nice.  #481 was finished in an epoxy primer, but it still looked great.  It was not painted with a final coat because someone with an art background will be putting her own designs on the machine.  I wonder if it'll be pastels with a seashell motif?

#481 and #469.  Stewart has a new control panel faceplate and new feets for #481.

<-- Ever wonder what an M400 looks like without a faceplate?

Nancy and Mali pose for a photo op after the reveal...to another camera.  :-)
