Testes. Testes. One... Two... Three?!


You think your job is tough?  Shit.  I stopped by Catalinbread today to pick up Nic, and head over to Malekko.  Erik had a pile of Manx Loaghtan Fuzz pedals, all of which needed to be tested.  At volume.  And I don't mean volume.  I mean VOLUME.

The boys at Catalinbread don't play.  Well, they play guitar.  And they play ping-pong waaaayyy too much (a regulation table sits in the dead center of the shop), but what I mean to say is they don't mess around.  They make bad ass pedals, and they give a shit that they sound good at low volume, and at the level you will actually play them at.

When I stopped by today, Erik was up to his short 'n curlies in fuzz -- hey, that sounds NORMAL!  Well, lets just say he had a LOT of fuzz pedals to test out.  This shot is a small little snippet of the pile.  I think there are worse jobs out there, don't you?
