On The Bench ~ August 19, 2012

On The Bench August 19, 2012 Getting the skeletons filled took a bit of time to get the shortest possible routs with no overlap but they work like a charm! These are pretty cool little boxes when mixed with a LS-2. And all hooked up. Didn’t have enough stubby cables to loop all 6 channels […]


On The Bench ~ August 16, 2012
