Hey everyone, haven't logged in in a few months by now, with 2020 being as effed up as it is a lot of stuff has happened. Just wanted to give you guys a little update and also make sure every single one of you is fine Here in Austria we went through a first lockdown in March, then during the summer things seemed normal again until the country was put on the red list and everything went to shit again. We had a terrorist attack in Vienna about 2 weeks ago (thank god we were late half an hour cause my new girlfriend needed too long in the bathroom, otherwise we would have been at the exact place where the asshole shot 4 people), start of November we went into a second lockdown again. I still have my job so things could be worse but still, fuck 2020. I'm finally taking music theory lessons at the age of 28 and progressing very well, dunno why I was scared to learn that stuff earlier. Broke up with my girlfriend, have a new one as of recently. Trying to stay positive, use my time, stay fit and play guitar as often as possible. My comissioned custom built Les Paul is unfortunately delayed since my luthier has been hit hard by the whole situation as well but we already selected the woods for it and 2 days ago I played a guitar he built for another customer just to be reminded that it'll be worth the wait. Rehearsals with the band are on hold and I'm afraid we are inofficially done anyway (my bassist and my drummer are scared shitless), we were supposed to play at least 7 gigs this year, so I picked up my DSL 100 and my 412 from the rehearsal space and I'm greeted by this sight every morning: The "Marquis" amp you see in the picture is a Marshall Plexi clone from Germany, built in the early seventies. My luthier gifted the fullstack to me as his (and my) amp tech is retired and I started tinkering with amplifiers. The thing has huge transformers, it came with Mullard EL34s in the poweramp section and Siemens 12AX7s in the pre. It's gonna be a project that'll probably take a year or longer but I'm in no hurry. Unfortunately there are no schematics to be found. Take a look: How have you guys been? How's the situation in your country? Gimme some updates, I've been away for too long! Hope you are all fine, cheers!
