So it appears that over Spring Break Dave made progress. Lisa will say that I also made huge progress, but it doesn't feel like it yet. I spent at least a few hours each day rearranging the shop. It had been growing out of control for years. Not controlled growth; it looked like the street map of downtown Boston. So it was time...
Now my racks are all along the side walls and the back wall. I have a huge "U" shaped work area. Four large solder/construction/measurement/work areas. This will lead to progress.
The front wall is being reserved for HiFi gear. As such, I have just been stacking some of the extra "stuff" along this wall. It is now out of hand again. I will have to do some serious arranging of this mess... listen to parts of it... learn what is doing which parts well... then rework.. fix.. arrange.. maybe even attic or junk some of it... I would put good money on a four way horn system very soon... but here it is now:
At this point, I was soothed... no, motivated, by this photo of Jucifer.... the thought of the Dead's "Wall of Sound"... maybe I should just hook all this stuff up and have a raging Spring... Tool, Dead Kenny G's, Motorhead, Biscuits... even Mahler would love this much moving air...
So until the next shop photo in which everything is arranged perfectly and I can float a tonally perfect Coltrane out in front of my workbench, I will enjoy this new monster... the horn rig inside is still prim and proper..
