Hi Folks, I am well passed the sell by date at 77 but often do some electrical work providing I know what I am doing I was a pro guitar player over 45 years. I repaired all my equipment over the years and made a few circuits. I have just returned to the UK due to health issues. I have made many safe and workable Heath Robinson units over the years. Hope I can have some input in the forum. Regards PhilTheDill

Welcome Phil the Dill.
Aged about 18 ,I'm sure Mr Heath and Robinson
were an important part to keeping project costs down.
More cautious now!

The fact you said “pro guitar player” is going to give you a pass on any dodgy electrics you offer. Everyone else would get a shafting

I am not professing for one minute to be a pro electrician but I do know a reasonable amount about electronics...(But still no pro) Here's a laugh for you, In the UK I was lead guitarist for Terry Deans Apache he said he told some muso's I was one of the best pickers in the country in the city Naaaaa Phil

I kept telling the drummer in our band that I was writing a song, every time I saw him until one day he asked what it was called I said "Don't close the door on me Richard, don't slam the door on me Dick.

He may have been in a punk band. none of them could play a single cord, or they were all waiting for the guitar tech to come back from holiday.
Punk is definitely not my scene, I played with bands top of the hit parade, did session tv and radio, each to their own but punk is Not my scene Some years ago I lived in Newquay and played with Terry Deans apache, in Devon and Cornwall. also to a 2000 crowd at Hendra.
OR A DECENT DRINK. Not freezing cold like the Aussies like it.
Like most things in life Its only our PERSONAL opinion and not etched in stone because WE don't like it.

I forgot to answer your question, yes the forum appears very open and friendly so that's nice .
