Dang, Brad, I was going to try to bribe you into mixing us on Sat. night!

Maybe Waldo can bring an SMS for people to demo? I'd like to get my ears on it again, and one of your Black Boxes and Earth Drives as well. I suspect you'd be making a few sales.

The Dead Gear Expo is proud to announce another manufacturer for the expo. Pigtronix. David and the Pigtronix crew
are deadheads and make some dead inspired pedals for both guitar and bass. Specifically their Envelope filter that was
designed with Estimated Prophet in mind. David is currently working with Bobby Weir to develop a tap tempo device to
run different analog pedals. We are excited that Pigtronix will be at the expo. Just another reason to come on down...

I was just talking to Pat at Resurrection about my guitar and asked him about the gear expo.

He's bringing some fine guitars... Don't quote me but somthing like 2-3 Bolts, an Eagle (similar to mine) and hopefully a wolf.

Enjoy!

I spoke to Pat at Resurrection the other day.

He's got some beauties he's bring to the expo. If I recall correctly he's bringing a spot on Bolt Replica, and then a custom Bolt, a Wolf and possibly more.

Also, I have been trying to convince him to install Waldo buffer's but he is stuborn for some reason about the buffer. Only using CAE2.

So, he's building two identical guitars and putting in a WAldo and a CAE2. Shold be a cool experiment.

"Half Step" is very excited to be performing on the Sunday night of this unique event. I'm bummed that I can't be a part of the whole expo and to see Playing Dead on Saturday. We look forward to meeting like minded musicians and vendors of the expo who are also searching for the sound. I hope to finally thank Mike Wald in person for all his input when customizing my VA900. It will be on hand and up for discussion as well as Scott Bardolf's Cowboy Fancy... right Scott? Especially looking forward to sharing the music of the Grateful Dead with you all! Peace.

Please visit our website and the Half Step YouTube channel for some recent videos.

I'm looking to test my Cowboy running through the following rig: SMS -> Power Amp -> 2x12 w/ JBL's.

Can I be guaranteed that I'll be able to perform this test at the Expo??
