We were the worst “helpers” ever! Nelson put us on the job to check that the kits were complete, and we did great with the resistors, then each thought the other had checked the caps. Got to the show and a cap type was missing. Fortunately Nelson had also sent some of his “distortion generator” kits to the Saturday show which we cannibalized. The next day he brought replacements for those....

He really works hard to bring surprises to BAF. What a guy!

It took all three of us plus Jack to screw that one up. Fortunately 6L6 thought fast
at BAF and stole the parts needed from the other kits.....

Thinking fast is literally part of his job description.

Perhaps that is why he builds amps, so he can think slow for a break.

The only good olde fashioned little electronics parts store I know of is in San Rafael, which is North over the Golden Gate from San Francisco. Until Jim thought of robbing the other kits, I had Zen Mod ready to accompany me on a “capacitor run”. I figured it would be a nice tourist experience for him....

I always knew there was an incredible amount of preparation and good ol' sweat that you guys put into the event, but we need a "behind the scenes" video for the next one...

Please wait till a vaccine is available, especially the ones who belong to the high risk group (60+, hypertension, coronary disease, etc) Hopefully, it will be availble by January of 2021?

I hope to attend a festival one of these years!

In the mean time, how about a virtual burning amp festival? We will smoke our computers as well.

call me naive, I learned that day before departure, when Pa opened squeakyclackety doors, searching for two small Donuts to put in Plankey Iron

what he found is emanating magnetic field approx. to your house, when powered on; if something is disturbing your instruments before flight, that's it - Pa is listening with Plankey in chain

should spend 10 days there, just to bring mental process to normal speed and clarity, then I would be certainly capable to rummage through Guest House, by own will
