    I first saw Snooks play live in the late 1980’s at the Rock ’n’ Bowl, New Orleans. It was a Monday after the New Orleans Jazz Festival, a double bill with Johnny Adams (the “Tan Canary”). The cover charge was $7. Snooks was set up as a trio, and both bands were separated by the center bar, taking alternating sets without a break, playing on the floor with no risers while people bowled. Snooks played every request and threw in… View this post

    I’m not big on physical security for audio systems. Locked sound rooms and doors. Locking rack cabinets. Security Torx screwheads. Warning signage and sticky tape threats (Do not touch this knob!). And we’ve all seen the locking rolltop desk that covers the entire sound system. Why do folks do this? In a word – Fear. Fear of damage. Fear of loss of control. Fear of the unknown (if someone twiddles with the knobs – they’ll totally screw up the sound… View this post

    The API 1608 serves as the perfect teaching tool in many interesting places in the world, and now, one can be found in Studio 214 at the Hochschule für Musik Nürnberg (Nuremberg University of Music).

The equipment available to the students offers unequaled opportunities with both vintage and modern effects, all in a school that dates back to 1821. The decision to purchase the 1608 came to… View this post
