    Riots broke out when I released the copper sparkle BS-301 Mystery Brain, with villagers rioting in chant " IT MUST BE LEGIT GREEN TO BE A VINTAGE ROLAND MACHINE"!! They were incensed at the monster I had created!

    even the employees
    were thrown into a confusion...

    [​IMG]

    I was perplexed at their rage and demands for a return to the old ways,
    [​IMG]

    So.. I went back to the lab...

    [​IMG]

    Dug up a fresh GREEN body and Installed the abnormal Brain.. thats ABBY and NORMAL

    [​IMG]

    And voila, ITS ALIVE!! O.G. Green V.4 w the FX insert!! The Mystery Brain BS-301 pedal version of the vintage Roland RE-301 Space Echo. Even a photocell chorus/vibrato was added for that wow and flutter of real tape vibe.. plus you can get that CE-1 roland chorus sound from this if you need the late 70s early 80s full effect. PS. there is a mini trim pot inside next to the photocell vibrato component so you can boost the sea sick wobble or smooth it down for background bubble. V-4 only w the effects insert (silver and beyond)

    Perhaps I should have said " a return to neo-traditional late 70s?" Sheeze when I say that it instantly transports me
    to our suburban ranch house in Santa Ana, Ca. How did your house look back then? Mine was like this just maybe not
    so opulent with the above cupboard velveteen orange tapestry plate hutches. :) I KNOW we had that linoleum and electric range w tobacco burst appliance look.

    Lol I don't get the over the stove design of these old kitchens. Must have been designed by a man who wanted easy access to the microwave, and didn't care that anyone trying to actually use the stove would bang their head, even someone my height.

    @Henry youre in petaluma eh? I had my first visit last month. Drove straight there from the bottom of San Diego all through the night. Grabbed some tea at a hipster coffee shop down the road from Mesa Boogie and then headed over to Grez Guitars to work out the details on a new Nocturne semi hollow guitar.
    Btw the only good thing about an electric stove is the spirally swirl grill marks on your tortillas, from the burners
