REVEAL...errr...OK, the Big Wait
As is tradition, the Mellotron owner, Charlie Hemlock, got to tour the workshop prior to the reveal, but then Jerry made him wait before he could see and play his restored machines.
There are other interesting things to check out at the Mellotron Workshop and in the area in the meantime, though!
Smile for the camera!
But when tubes go bad...
Julia started making some awful noise rather than the expected noise out of one side. Eventually we worked it out to being one of the 12AX7 preamp tubes. We rolled Julia off the carpet while the machine was running, and that caused one of the tubes to croak, much to Jerry's chagrin!
MK + MKI
So...Now that YOU have waited just like poor Charlie did, let's get to the reveal! -->
