Re: how to blow up your equipment [with spit]
BTW, my favorite "blowing up of equipment story" was in January when
andrew pask and I were playing with Steve Lawson and Steuart Liebig at
Club Tropical....Andrew set his power strip with his wall warts right
by my feet. For those of you that don't know, I play trumpet. Trumpets
generate condensation ("spit," in the vernacular). I cluelessly emptied
my spit valve and shorted out his entire rig a few minutes into the
gig....sparks, everything....ouch.......it shut it all down. Drying and
cleaning and rebooting while onstage, he got everything working
again.....I'd be interested in hearing if anyone else has blown up a
rig in the same way......
