    Yup, @TV the Wired Turtle tempted me yet again with this cool Aqua Mystery Brain. You all know what it does and that it does it well. It looks a bit more teal to me in person and absolutely beautiful. I love my first taste of these skirted knobs too!

    It’s new home:

    I’m still plenty happy and love my Atomic Brain. The plan is still to get a rockabilly cover thing going on in about a year and try to gig some local car shows and cruise nights. At which point my Atomic Brain is going back on this board. And the rockabilly board will be a tuner and Mystery Brain for playing out... simple and ready to rock.

    @Ricochet @audept @Stefan87 @Trash Kidd @loudnlousy @pmac11

    Thank you all. I love this color in person (or colour depending where you live). And of course the sound to go right along with it. For those who haven’t experienced a Nocturne pedal in person, the quality is tops to include the finish. :)

    Thank you. As simple as it looks it’s taken some trial and error to get it where I’m happy with what it does now. I can’t imagine needing much else except maybe a tremolo to play around with.

    Thanks. The Epoch Deluxe is a fantastic pedal and a keeper. Catalinbread had a holiday sale last year shipping direct. So I was able to pick it up for the price of a used one, tax free, and free shipping. It’s a ways off but maybe they’ll have another sale at the end of this year.

    Thanks. I remember you’ve got the El Pescadoro. The Grits flavor is superb!

    Than you Henry. I plugged in today and that color made me smile when looking down at my board. :)

    It sounds like you’re preparing for things to open and gig again. You’ll have to do a family photo when it arrives. I think I remember one of yours is blue. What color is the other?
