Mojo haul today.. assorted bag
To the left, a very rare 2 metres of silk threaded wire (the type Marconi used as an aerial), just rare as hens teeth. Not made anymore. Relic.
Mallory pots, an old school trimmer, vintage caps n stuff, japanese stuff…
In a word, MOJO!
I gave as a gift a bunch of Dallas Arbiter Rangemaster to some friends..
I branded them with a Cortina (famed, rich, skiing and lounging dolomitean village of the northern italian uppercrust) sticker.
Classic booster, classic location.
in one case, it was given as a (laugh) KIT!
My friend Enrico had it with a bigger value variable resistor (knob), so that he could dial it to fuzzy edges.
He said it is ‘too dirty’ for him (argh).
I called it STP-and badged it appropriately.
heres’s my rangemaster transistor tester
Ah.. My mate Franko Shaker, member of The Springsteen Serenades, gifted me with these wicked, vintage Smurfs knock off stickers.
I put one on my Big Muff triangle build.
When we were in our 20es we would have bbqs on the beach. And dance surf, garage music all night long. Although later The Man put a stop to our fun..
We turned 30, but still we did go ahead and have a few even after the law was against us. But it became a logistic issue to meet all at once with friends living all over the place.
Now i mainly have a bbq either alone or with a couple of friends or my fiance, ‘in the family’.
Its good fun to get messy, laugh, drink, and eat great food.
In a way, it is us going back to the premieval campfire and eat game. A refreshing way to go back to our roots, to the basic, early, true meaning of REWARD.
Finally! I have been waiting ages for those big brown caps to get here. Lotsa mojo working there.. They deliver warm mids to the fuzz.
I will fine tune this build on wednesday with my little vox ac4tv tube amp and then decide the value of that biasing trimmer.

Had to make a smaller unit.. this is really tiny (it would fit in one of those hook it up on yer guitar boxes it originally came in).
