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......
